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.
