From Delhi to Agra you can travel by train or car. For Varanasi you can travel by air or by train.

You need atleast 3 N and 4D trip to cover both places.

You can do it in following sequence.

Delhi > train or fly to Varanasi > train or fly to Agra > train or cab to Delhi.

Hi,

The best way to travel Agra in June would be by train. Agra - Varanasi the only option is train again, Varanasi - Delhi , there are two options -01st Train , II Flight

Suggested economic plan

Day 01 Delhi Arrive

Day 02 Delhi - Visit ( Take evening overnight train to Varanasi , best trains are Shiv Ganga Exp or Swantrata Senani Exp

Day 03 Arrive Varanasi - in Morning - As June would be too hot so better to see Varanasi in Evening start Evening Ganges Prayer & Evening boat Ride.

Day 04 Morning Boat , later city tour , Evening Sarnath , take overnight train to Agra

Day 05 Morning Arrive Agra - Relax , Evening visit Fort & Fatehpur Sikri.

Day 06 Visit Taj Mahal by Sunrise , later Sikandra etc & come back to Delhi.

If you are looking for comfort & Luxury then Delhi - Varanasi - Delhi By Flight & Delhi - Agra - Delhi by Shatabadi Express train , 02 days are good for Varanasi & 01 full day is enough for Agra & Fatehpur Sikri.

Hi pamela...

If you want to see taj only in agra then one day is good..or If you want to explore more and can elaborate your itinerary then as per suggested by harimangalji will be best suited..

For one day trip..leave delhi early morning by taxi to agra..visit agra fort and spend your evening at tajmahal..don't plan agra on friday..as tajmahal entry remains closed on friday..

Late night take train to varanasi.. For info regarding train check the website www.indianrailinfo.com ..journey by taxi will be more hectic..

Arrive varanasi..do visit ghats..evening prayer, markets and surroundings..spend 2 days there..

Second day evening fly to new delhi..
