    • Agra. An early morning starts your day visiting one of the highlights of your tour! A visit to the spectacular Taj Mahal, one of the finest pieces of architecture in the world. This glistening white tomb is an exquisite monument to eternal love, created by Shah Jahan in responding to his adored wife's dying wish was that he should 'build a tomb in her memory such as the world had never seen before'. The Taj's beauty is dazzling and it seems to change color throughout the day as the marble reflects the changes in the sky.

      After visiting the 16th-Century red sandstone Agra Fort, home to the fairy-tale Jahangir Palace, yooumay choose to spend the afternoon at leisure. We highly recommend the optional tour to the Itmad-Ud-Daulah, also known as Baby Taj. This stunning marble tomb was built between 1622 and 1628 and is studded with semi-precious stones. The tour ends at Mehtab Bagh at sunset – this park offers sensational views of the Taj Mahal.
