Itinerary

  • Day 1
    Arrive Agra
    • Welcome to Agra! An Enable Travel representative will meet you at any of the designated locations in Agra. The representative will guide you to the awaiting vehicle, facilitating your smooth transfer to the hotel and assist with check in.

    • Enjoy a visit to Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb.

      In the afternoon, visit the magnificent Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb, popularly known as the 'Baby Taj'. Filled with gardens, mini structures and heritage monuments, this elegant tomb is the first structure of its kind to be constructed of pure marble in Mughal India - a perfect draft of the iconic Taj Mahal.

      The complex itself is very well ramped right up to the last platform. But there is no wheelchair accessibility to the final enclosure where the cenotaphs lie.

    • Meals included: None (meals on your own)
    • Taj Vilas
  • Day 2
    Depart Agra - Delhi
    • Visit Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, followed with a transfer to the airport in Delhi.

      Your day begins after a sumptuous breakfast with a visit to the Taj - the epitome of marvellous Mughal architecture. Celebrated for its structural magnificence and aesthetic beauty, partake in the poetry of the beautiful Taj and the lost love stories that surround the mausoleum, as it sits reminiscing by the gurgling Yamuna. A symphony in white marble, this is truly a tribute to eternal love.

      Accompanied by your local guide, seated in your wheelchair, you can comfortably bridge the gap between the drop-off point and the entrance to the Taj Mahal complex. However, if possible, subject to having obtained prior permission on the day of visit, our vehicle can go right up to the entrance gate of the Taj Mahal complex. The complex itself is very well ramped right up to the last platform. But there is no wheelchair accessibility to the final enclosure where the cenotaphs lie.

      We don't think you would mind taking a washroom break before heading off to Agra Fort, an outstanding example of Mughal art and architecture. An impregnable military structure built by Akbar, the Agra Fort luxuriated with the elegance, lavishness and majesty of an imperial palace. Relive the era as you step into the seat of power and the stronghold of the Mughal Empire.

      Absorb the glory of this imposing, red sandstone structure, as you cruise conveniently through most of its well ramped palaces, pavilions and courtyards.

      Later, proceed to the airport in Delhi for your onward journey.
