Extension To Agra
01 Nights / 02 Days
A true testament to the symbol of love, the Taj Mahal stands along banks of the Yamuna, mirroring the cosmic rhythm of the sun and moon. While it does indeed hold the proud honor of being one of the most extraordinary architectural feats known to mankind, it is not the only monumental achievement of the illustrious Mughal Empire that lay a stronghold in India for centuries.
Agra Fort and the city of Fatehpur Sikri nearby are signs of a kingdom that evokes fables of folklore and teleports you to time where a dynasty embraced a creole of Indo-Islamic cultures. An extension to Agra, through this city of emperors is guaranteed to enchant its visitors in a spell of awe and wonder. You can combine this extension to Agra tour with a tiger safari in India to some of the best national parks in the country.

We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park. Our guide was Sanjay Gupta, who had 25 years of experience in the park and with the tigers. He was wonderful, sharing his experience and knowledge throughout our three full days together. He was definitely a highlight of our trip, as a great guide makes for a great experience, whether you see tigers or not! And we did see tigers...
