Delhi airport to Agra


My husband and I will be in Delhi in early Aug and we are thinking of making an overnight trip to visit Taj Mahal.

1) Do you think this itineraries are doable:-

- Arrived Delhi on Sat, 12pm. Booked a private car and transfer direct from Delhi airport to Agra. On the way, visit Agra Fort and Sikandra (Akbar's Tomb) or Fatehpur Sikri and check in hotel in the evening.

- Check out hotel after breakfast and visit Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb and Taj Mahal before driving back to Delhi.

2) How long is the travel time from delhi airport to Agra and from Agra to carlson country inn delhi gurgaon?

3) How much is the private transfer from Delhi to Agra and return? Any recommendations of reliable private tour guide/car

Appreciate your advice.

Thank yoy

Dear visitors

Your itinerary planning is looking great. travel time via yamuna express way is 3-4 hrs minimum or old delhi-agra via Sikadra tomb is also take 4 - 4.30hrs.

Small car(Tata indigo or suzuki dzire or Toyota Etios) via express way including airport/monuments parking and tolls is rupees 6-7k

TOYOTA INNOVA Ruppes 9-10k.but tour guide and monuments entrance fee is extra. if you like please PM to few DE or members of TA they will be help you for proper cost and other needs.

Thanks and regards

Your plan is a little ambitious for Day 1. Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri are approx 40 km apart. Best would be to reach Agra and see the sights in the city till dark. Leave Fatehpur Sikri for the next day on the way back to Delhi.

It would take around 4 hr from Delhi airport to Agra. On the way back, since you are heading to Gurgaon you may take a little longer depending on traffic conditions.

Your plan looks good but on day 1 concentrate on the monuments which r in Agra because Fatehpur sikri is on different direction,if time permits do Sikri on the following day....the price of car very much depends on the type/size...for 2 people Tata Indigo or Swift dezire is fine.

It will take 4 hours + - from Delhi to Agra.

There are few Members and DE on Delhi and Agra forum they may help you.

If you plan to leave Delhi at 12 pm you can see only one monuments at Agra. Normally it is 4 hour journey from Delhi Airport. Take a small car which will cost you around INR5000. There are many taxi operator. Take quotation from each of them and insist them to include all hidden charges so that you may choose best option for you. you can try agrataxiservice.co.in or agracarrentals.in for best rates.
