Overview

Upon pickup in the morning from the airport or your hotel in Delhi by a private chauffeur, you’re transferred in the comfort of a private vehicle to Agra, a distance of approx. 124 miles (200 km). Reaching Agra by afternoon, head to the 4-star Gateway Hotel for lunch. Enjoy a 5-course menu with the Taj Mahal as your backdrop; it's a unique experience that, combined with sightseeing, is only available with this exclusive tour.

Take in the superb views from the restaurant’s Sky Deck, an open-sided venue on the hotel’s rooftop providing limited seating and unhindered vistas. (See Sample Menu in Itinerary below.) Alternatively, enjoy the high-tea option following your visit to the Taj Mahal.

After lunch you're taken to the Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Listen as your guide enlightens you with interesting stories behind this icon of India. Commissioned by Shah Jahan as a memorial to his third wife Mumtaz Mahal, the domed marble mausoleum took 20 years to build.

Your guide discusses this exemplar of Mughal architecture and share knowledge of its Persian designer. Then follow up with a visit to the Taj Museum, located in the surrounding Naubat Khana complex. This treasure trove of more than 100 artifacts including paintings, vases and coins, provides tremendous insight.

Take a look at the original architectural drawings and plans for the Taj Mahal complex, then drive to Agra Fort. If you’ve booked the tea option, first head to the Sky Deck of the Gateway Hotel to enjoy your selection.

Next, learn about the intricate design of the 16th-century Agra Fort, which combines both Islamic and Hindu architectural styles. Built by Emperor Akbar on the banks of the Yamuna River, the fort is constructed of red sandstone. Walk around the complex to see the beautifully designed rooms like the Diwan-I-Am (public audience hall) and the Diwan-I-Khas (private audience hall), added by Shah Jahan.
Afterward, you're taken back to Delhi with drop-off at your hotel.

Exclusives combine unique experiences and great deals — from traditional tours to once-in-a-lifetime experiences — and are not available from other 3rd-party online sellers.
