Start with pickup from your hotel in Jaipur or the airport, then make the journey by air-conditioned vehicle to Agra.

About one hour from Agra, stop to see Fatehpur Sikri, a World Heritage Site that has been described as a 'perfectly preserved ghost town.' Featuring a number of elegant buildings, the fortified city was built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar in the late 16th century, then was abandoned after only 14 years.

Once you have toured Fatehpur Sikri, continue into Agra and your first destination there, the Taj Mahal. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was built by the 17th-century Mughal Emperor for his wife, and it contains numerous domes and minarets, long reflection pools, and lots of gleaming marble.

Take a break for lunch at a local restaurant, then visit yet another World Heritage Site, the Agra Fort, which dates to 1565 AD and is another creation of Emperor Akbar. The interior of the red sandstone fort combines Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles.

Go shopping for some of the renowned handicrafts of Agra, such as works of marble and soft-stone inlay, leather, brass, jewelry, and embroidery. Then end your tour with a transfer back to your original deparutre point.

The day started badly. Although we had confirmed by text our hotel address in Jaipur and had received a confirmation that this had been received and that our pick up time would be 6 am, our driver didn't arrive until 6.50 am. He hardly spoke any English and my husband couldn't understand where he had been. When we eventually spoke to the driver's superior, we were accused of giving them incorrect details of our pick up location. We did refer him to our text but received no apology. We had already used taxis and drivers in Delhi, all of whom supplied clean, comfortable cars with drivers who spoke English. The car supplied for our very long four-and-a-half hours drive to Agra was not comfortable or of the quality we expected, and our driver drove erratically probably because we were behind schedule and seemed surly and unfriendly. Even if we couldn't converse, he could have been more attentive and friendly. It was a long, uncomfortable in every sense of the word drive. We eventually arrived at Fatehpur Sikri and met our guide who did try to apologise for how the day had started. He was very informative and knowledgeable throughout the day. The Taj Mahal was everything that you could wish for and Agra Fort was amazing - more majestic than the Red Fort in Delhi. Our lunch venue was fine - they seemed to cater for tourists who were doing Agra, but the food was fresh and tasty. Although we had been warned about not accepting guide's offers to go shopping, we actually had a great time. We visited several shops and watched real craftsmen at work. The intricacy of their work made us realise why some items seem so expensive. Our drive back to Jaipur was then delayed because the car we were using had a flat tyre and then, when our Agra guide left us, our driver became quite lost and our journey back took even longer. We arrived back in Jaipur at about 9.30 pm. It had been a long, exhausting and expensive day. With hindsight, the journey could have been made using the train.
