After breakfast, we will hit the road and reach Agra. The 180 km (3.5 hrs) journey is a pleasant drive, passing through lush green fields that sway gently in the cool breeze, as if welcoming the visitors. Witness the numerous villages lying en route. If time permits, we will stop by at a village to introduce you to the laid back lifestyle of these tiny villages.

Check in at the hotel.

Agra is situated on the west bank of the Yamuna river, just 200 km from Delhi. The extensive sightseeing tour introduces the visitors to the contrasting flavours of old part of the town, situated north of the fort near the main Kinari Bazaar market. The cantonment area towards the south presents a glimpse of modern Agra, where you will find numerous handicraft shops and restaurants. The imposing structures built of snow white marble and bright red stone present an awe inspiring sight. Be amazed at the monumental sight of the imposing Agra Fort and roam through the lanes to see incredible structures like Itmad-ud-daulah, Chini-ka-rauza, Jami Masjid and Akbar's Mausoleum.

Treat your taste buds to an array of delicious Mughlai cuisine, the aroma and flavour is sure to leave your appetite whetting for more.

Taj MahalFirst of all we move on to the poetry in white marble - the Taj Mahal. Petrol and Diesel operated vehicles are not allowed near Taj, so we hire a tonga or a battery operated van.

Over the years, the Taj Mahal has fascinated people from around the planet. Poets have attempted to depict its glory in words while painters have made numerous unsuccessful attempts to recreate the magic on their canvases. The Taj alone is the sole reason for thousands of tourists to visit India every year. The monumental structure which took 22 years and more than 20000 men to build, is noted for its stunning architecture, elegant domes and beautiful inlay work.

AgraAgra Fort - Construction of the massive fort began in 1565 and additions were made right through to the times of Shah Jahan, when it was started to be used partially as a palace. Built mostly of red sandstone, the fort consists of a number of fascinating buildings inside its massive walls entailing the Motif Masjid and Jehangir's Palace.

Other major attractions covered as part of the itinerary include Itmad-ud-daulah's tomb - built by empress Noor Jehan in the memory of her father, Chini-ka-rauza - the tomb surmounted by a single huge dome and the beautifully laid Ram Bagh.

Evening will be free for leisure activities. Dinner and night stay at Agra.
