Full description

Begin your day with an early 3:00 AM, pickup from your hotel in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, or the airport. Be driven to Agra, enjoying a peaceful 3-hour ride in your own private air-conditioned car.

Arrive tin Agra at 6:00 AM and meet with your tour guide before proceeding to visit the Taj Mahal. Explore the Taj Mahal whilst enjoying its sunrise views, spending around 2-3 hours in the mausoleum. After visiting the Taj Mahal, your next monument will be Agra Fort, built by the Great Mughal Emperor "Akbar". Here, you will spend around 1 hour in the building. After visiting Agra Fort, proceed for a breakfast break at the 5-Star Hotel, where you will be able to enjoy some food and relax.

Next, if you are not in a hurry and also want to explore more, visit Itimad-Ud-Daulah (Baby Taj). Explore the rear view of the Taj Mahal, as it casts its shadow on the River Yamuna. At 10:00 AM, drive back to New Delhi, and at 1:00 PM you will arrive back at your point of origin/Delhi Airport.

It was an amazing experience to see majestic beauty of the Taj. The driver, Mr. Sonu was very professional and got us from Delhi to the Taj Mahal before sunrise. The guide, Mr. Islam was incredible sharing his knowledge and giving us an excellent tour. He does great photography which was a bonus. Mr. Islam is very friendly and versatile in language. It is great to have good guide and driver to make us feel comfortable. I highly recommend the sunrise visit to Taj with GetYourGuide.

My sunrise tour of the Taj Mahal was fabulous! My tour guide, Rafeeq, was very informative and knew so much history of the Taj Mahal. He was very interesting and also took great photos of me with the beautiful Taj! I had a great time. My driver was very prompt for my 2:30am pickup and did a great job driving me to Agra. I highly recommend this tour and my tour guide.

The experience was incredible. The Taj Mahal is majestic. Having a guide who explain a little about the history of the site is always good. Kasif Khan is a cheerful and fun person. He helps you find the best places to buy souvenirs, and he is very supportive in communication with the locals in the city. Highly recommended.
