“Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

In terms of things to see, Agra Fort is actually more historically fascinating than the nearby Taj Mahal but you can't see one without the other not least because their history's are so intertwined. Again get a guide as there is lots to see and understand and this does again help you negotiate Agra itself. I nearly missed this because of over excited ladies in my group falling for the marble and jewellery hard sells but I insisted on getting here and am do thrilled I did.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Worth visiting, all construction is amazing. If u don´t have a particular guide, u should get one there cause there´s a lot of information to be shared. If you have the ticket of Taj Mahal you get a discount of 50 Rs. (I think u need to visit it the same they for it to apply).
If you are a foreign girl don´t be surprised if indian guys take pictures of you while u take yours, some times they are really obvious but as long as they don´t get to close from you, its fine.

“good place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

One fort is much the same as another. There are so many to see you start to get a bit timed out.But this is large place and you can always have a sit down and chill.

“Well maintained and must visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

The place is very well kept. Parking is good. Needs lots of walking, so beware. The room with glasses, supposed to be Mumtaz Mahal"s bathroom was all locked up and saw the guide getting the room opened in connivance with the guard for some extra cash...needs to be stopped. The light and sound show is really bad and fully avoidable. No special light effects, very dull.
