The Taj Mahal Transit Tour begins with a short drive from Delhi to Agra and is an ideal trip if we want to visit the foremost historical monument of India in a very short period of time. On our short transit tour, we enjoy a full-day excursion to Agra for a tour of the Taj Mahal which is an ode to love and regarded by many as a symbol of India’s rich history. The Taj Mahal tour package also includes visits to Jama Masjid, Etmad-Ul-Ah and two other UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Red Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. The deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri contains many magnificent red sandstone buildings, built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar.
