Ornate palaces, ancient forts and the world-famous Taj Mahal

Standing proud in the heart of the city of Agra, the Taj Mahal is an incomparable testament to love. A marvel of architectural symmetry, the ivory-white marble of this imposing monument glistens, in dramatic contrast with the blue sky beyond. On our Agra tours we time our visits carefully, visiting either at sunrise or sunset, when this contrast is at its most pronounced and spectacular.

Once you’ve strolled the marble pathways and marveled at the symmetry of the Taj’s architecture, you’ll find there’s plenty more to see in Agra too. Take the former imperial city of the Mughal rulers, the Agra Fort. It’s now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and within its red sandstone walls are a wealth of highly decorated palaces and ornate marble mosques for you to explore. And then about 35km from Agra is Fatehpur Sikri. Originally built as the headquarters of the Mughal Emperor Akbar, this ornate red sandstone fort has long been deserted and can be visited en route to or from Jaipur.
