Delhi-Varanasi-Rajasthan. My Perfect Itinerary (4 Replies)
Further to my earlier post https:/… I’ve now got what I believe is a perfect 30-day backpacking itinerary for me. I chose not to visit the Taj Mahal but know most people would want to include it, so that’s easily done by cutting a night at, say, Varanasi or Jaipur. I want to say a huge thanks to everyone on TA who helped me with my plans, especially sardar2017 whose independent advice and tips as a fellow traveller has been invaluable. I’ll be staying in cities, towns, villages, the desert...More

Hi, I am arriving at Arga Cantt station at 9.50am and was hoping to go to visit Wildlife SOS in Agra. The time slot for the visit is 11am - 1pm, I would be happy to go straight from the station. Do you think I could make it there by 11am? Thanks

35km or so to the elephant center near Mathura. Likely time an hour and a bit - you will probably be a shade late.

Things to do in Agra (9 Replies)
Planning a trip to Delhi and Agra in late September. At the moment I have decided to spend 4 days in Agra with an itinerary to include one day at both the Red Fort and Taj and another day visiting the Wildlife SOS bear and elephant sanctuary. Can anyone suggest other things to do for the other two days?
