About this Tour
• Visit the Mausoleum of Akbar, one of the most popular Mogul Emperors to date. Located in Sikandra, in the outskirts of Agra, this tomb was designed by the emperor himself and was later modified by his son
• The Mausoleum of Itmad-ud-Daulah is often nicknamed as the “Baby Taj”. This tomb is essentially a tribute to the refined sensibilities of his daughter Noor Jehan who ran the state as a proxy and as the wife of Akbar’s son Jahangir

TOUR NOTES: Please note, the food on the street is delicious but does not meet national or international hygiene standards. Although we only go to very popular places, with good local reputations, these stalls do not cook using bottled water or wash their utensils with it. So eating street food is always risky. If you prefer not to risk it, but still want to see what it’s all about, then at the end of the walk, we can take you to Haldirams where you can try chaats and other popular dishes in safe and hygienic conditions.
