Taj Mahal day tour

There is only one place in the world in which to see the Taj Mahal and that is Agra. The monument's splendour is simply undeniable and creates an air of romance throughout the city. The decadent and sophisticated culture of the Nawab still permeates Agra and gives the city a unique Mughal character that some say make it more Indian than New Delhi. In addition to the wondrous Taj Mahal, Agra is dotted with unique attractions like the massive Agra fort, the city's labyrinth of bazaars and nearby Fatehpur Sikri.
Morning pick up from hotel/airport & enjoy guided city tour including:
Taj Mahal (A Unesco World Heritage Site)
No trip to Agra would be complete without a visit to this shimmering vision of domes and minarets. The world's best-known tomb stands testimony to the timeless love story of the 17th century Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan and his queen Mumtaz Mahal. As Agra is the city of Taj Mahal, perhaps the most photographed monument in the world. Besides perfect symmetry in every aspect of its construction, the inlay work of semi precious stones into marble in pietra dura style is absolutely remarkable.
 Note: Closed on Fridays.
Agra Fort (A Unesco World Heritage Site)
Built by Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D, this huge fort is made of red sandstone. The elegant buildings inside reflect an interesting synthesis of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. The maze of the courtyards, mosques & private chambers of the fort echo the story of the Mughal Empire. The Moti Masjid & other magnificent buildings reflect the skill of the ancient Indian architects. 
Fatehpur Sikri (A Unesco World Heritage Site)
Once a capital, this mini-city located 37 km from Agra, is made of red sandstone and combines influences from both Hindu and Mughal architecture. This structure also houses Salim-Chishti's Dargah. It is believed that by offering prayers at this Mazar whatever one wishes will definitely get fulfilled by the will of Salim Chisti himself.
