    On your arrival in Agra, your first stop would be at Agra Fort. Agra Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in Agra. The fort is also known as Lal Qila, Fort Rouge and Red Fort of Agra. The fort can be more accurately described as a walled city. Captured by the Mughals in 1526, a vast treasure including the Koh-i-Noor diamond was seized. It took 4000 workers and eight years to build the fort and it was completed in 1573. Double ramparts with massive circular bastions encircle the 94-acre fort. Four gates on four sides provide access to the fort. Delhi Gate is the grandest and was the gate for king’s formal entry. Diwan-i-Am, Diwan-i-Khas and Jahangiri Mahal are must visits here. A visit to the fort is incomplete without a visit to Musamman Burj where Shah Jahan was held captive by Aurangazeb. The bastion offers the most poignant views of the Taj Mahal.

    After visiting Agra Fort, your next stop would be at AC restaurant where you will enjoy your Indian traditional Lunch.

    After finishing the Lunch your tour will move ahead and you will be taken to the Taj Mahal with your private local tour guide.  It is one of India's biggest tourist attractions, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you will witness the beauty of Taj, a very difficult marbal inlay work with precious and semi- precious stones. Taj Mahal, the pinnacle of Mughal architecture, was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631 while giving birth to their fourteenth child. All the effort, time and excellence involved in building this beautiful monument resulted out of the feeling of love that the Emperor had for his wife. When you stand in front on the Taj Mahal with this in mind, you begin to experience an emotion close to the Emperor’s love itself.

    Later you can enjoy some shopping in Agra, one of the most important centers for handicrafts, made of marble inlay work. The Mughals were great patrons of art and craft. Empress Noorjahan took personal interest and was an accomplished artist herself in zari embroidery work. Agra's major handicraft products besides inlay work are leatherware, brassware, carpets, jewellery and embroidery work.

    At the end of your tour, you will be driven back to Delhi with a beautiful memories of Agra. Drop-off at your Hotel/Airport or any preferred location in Delhi.
