Agra is the pinnacle of sightseeing in India. Home to one of the seven wonders of the world, Agra attracts tourists from all over the world. The Taj Mahal, the centre of attraction for all there is in Agra, sees thousands of tourists who come to Agra, drawn by the famous love story behind the construction of this wonder. A sightseeing trip to Agra won’t take more than a few hours, to be very precise, about eleven to twelve hours. You can see Taj Mahal in a span of three hours, then head to Fatehpur Sikri, the remarkable city built by Emperor Akbar. You can visit both Agra and Fatehpur Sikri from New Delhi, Agra being very close to the capital. You can also tour Agra with other villages and cities, in a combination package. For example, you can see the sights of Agra and then head to Mathura. You can also take a walking tour of the Kachhpura village. The village is very close to Agra and you can easily reach the place in your car.
The best way to explore Agra, as it is to explore any town in India, would be to go for a bike tour of the place. Hire a bike and go touring the town of Agra, and as you go, take in memories of the people around you, their lifestyle, their daily chores and how they live in a place like Agra. Make your stops at the famous destinations in the city, and then be on your way. You can hire a tour guide for half a day to take you around the city as well. Almost all the sightseeing tours in Agra are deep rooted in history and a good guide will give you a great experience by telling you stories and the background of each place, making the visit to the historical monuments worthwhile for you.
