A friend and I hired a official guide to escort us around this beautiful fort and palace. It was well worth the small amount money for this service. He was a lovely guy and my friend had had his service on her last visit here the year before so was delighted to see him again. His was extremely informative and... More

This was included as part of our tour and definitely worth a look. It gives an amazing perspective on those times in India. It is an expansive site. A good guide is worthwhile to ensure you have the opportunity to understand the history.

THis looks very similar to Red Fort in Delhi although better preserved. There is light and sound show at 7PM which tells the story of Agra rather than the fort itself.

The fort is magnificent, being built of red stone in a massive style, with a huge and imposing gateway. It really is worth a visit

Absolutely stunning interior. Despite it being an extremely hot day, I didn't miss anything. I would recommend anyone coming here to get a guide or at least a guide book as it would be a shame to come here and not know anything about the influences of The Mughal Empire. Great view of the Taj too. It was nice to... More

The entry gate is not far from Agra Fort railway station. You can walk from there. Spend approximate 1-2 hrs. to watch and take photos around is just right.

Great place to match with a trip to the taj. Love the view of the taj from the area where the builder of the taj was under house arrest. Lots of passageways that you can explore.

Must hire a guide when doing a tour of the Agra fort. Without that its just a host of buildings and courtyards. Our guide was fantastic and through him we really learnt about the kings, their queens, their way of life and some fascinating stories. I particularly remember a point on the terrace from where the view of the Taj... More
