Agra is the former capital of the Mughal Empire and home to a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites. This relatively small city is packed with history, which is testament to the power and wealth of the Mughal reign in India. Home to the world famous Taj Mahal, Agra is also home to a number of lesser known, but still magnificent, medieval forts and citadels including the Red Fort and Fatehpur Sikri.

Our Agra tour is designed as a short add on to your existing Ekno Travels itinerary or independent travels. As with all Ekno experiences, we select our hotels and locations with an eye on combining luxury and comfort into one fabulous experience.
