Book your flight for Goa-Delhi & Jaipur-Goa.

Day 1: arrive Delhi. Travel same day to Agra by taxi. Visit Taj.

Day 2: Early morning drive to Jaipur.

Day 3: Afternoon fly Jaipur-Goa.

All you need is to book 2 flights. taxi for 3 days & 2 night stay. Land cost would be around INR 16000-18000.

Hi !

You may fly Goa - New Delhi and take Statabdi Train to Agra in the morning from New Delhi Railway Station.

Explore Agra and take Shatabdi back to travel to your onward destination.

It's most budget option.

Agreed with post two. book your flight hotel and driver separate with reasonable cost. there is too many small/big travel agencies in Delhi but before final take quote from 2-3 others too.

The Perfect Agra Itinerary

Day 01: Delhi - Agra

Starting from Delhi, proceed to Agra after an early breakfast. You can either catch the Shatabdi train or hire a car (with driver) and reach Agra by lunch time. Post lunch and a siesta, proceed to the magnificent Taj Mahal.

Evenings tend to be quite crowded, but the Taj is extremely beautiful at dusk. Get a tour from a certified guide to acquaint yourself with the history and significance of this magnificent monument. Post the tour, spend remainder of the evening enjoying Taj as the sun sets. Make sure that you hang around till closing time (7 PM).

Day 02: Agra

Today will be a long day! Head to the Taj Mahal before 6am when the gates open for the day. This glorious monument is at its best under the early morning sun. It is the best time to click pictures as not only is the light wonderful but it's relatively less crowded too. The Taj needs to be viewed at both dusk, dawn,

After breakfast visit the sprawling Agra Fort and explore its vast groundswith a certified guide. Post lunch proceed to Itimad-ud-daulah and Sikandara (Akbar's serenely beautiful tomb).

In the evening, head to Mehtab Garden for a unique (and your last!) view of the Taj Mahal from across the Yamuna river!

Day 03: Day trip to Fatehpur Sikri

After an early breakfast head to Fatehpur Sikri, the first planned city of the Mughals and also the first one designed in Mughal architecture, an amalgamation of Indian architecture, Persian and Islamic architecture. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986.

Return back to Delhi in the afternoon and use the remainder of the day to relax or head back to the Taj Mahal again!!

There are lots of travel agent who can organize this tour for you. also 03 days will be more than enough for you, so you might can include Jaipur in the tour program
