AGRA EXPLORER DAY TOUR
“Nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that
the Sun visits on his round. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked.” Mark Twain
Your private tour begins in Agra.
Pick-up is at 8:30 am from your hotel.
Agra will always be known for the fabulous Taj Mahal, but there are many other architectural marvels worth visiting as well.
Our first memorial is the beautiful Taj Mahal – the stunning monument to Mumtaz Mahal, Shah Jahan’s beloved wife. Designed and built over 22 years by Persian architect Ustad Isa, it stands forever as a testament to the heart-broken Shah’s undying love.
Lesser known, but still impressive, is the tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah called the “Baby Taj”. The buildings are smaller but wonderfully decorated with painted and raised plaster designs.
Another famous monument we’ll see is Agra Fort. This was built as the summer palace of Shan Jahan and from the high terrace you can view the Taj Mahal in
the distance. Built of intricately embellished red sandstone it provides a distinct contrast to the marble palaces within.
Tea stop and light lunch en route to our next monument - The Tomb of Akbar the Great.
Also called Akbar's Mausoleum, this masterpiece of architecture was constructed in the 1600's. It's noteworthy for the beautiful sandstone buildings inlaid with marble and slate and the surrounding grounds. One of the greatest Mughal rulers, Akbar's tomb is a fitting monument to his life and accomplishments. Covering over 119 acres, it hosts a wildlife park, expansive gardens and several tall minarets.
Fatehpur Sikri, the ancient city that Emperor Akbar built (but only occupied for 10 years), is on our afternoon itinerary before we return to your Agra hotel.
