Delhi Agra Same Day Tour

Delhi Agra Same Day Tour is operated everyday except Friday, as Taj Mahal is closed on Friday.  Bus trips are preferred in comparison to Car ones, as there are other tourist families in the vehicles.

Advantages:

  • Less Time Consumed
  • Cost Effective

Passengers usually select same day returning tour starting early morning from Delhi via expressway to Agra.  This new expressway is exceptionally state of art beautiful.  Speed of vehicle needs to be under control on this expressway, as high speed may turn into accidents here.

You will first visit Agra and there you will visit Agra Red Fort and Taj Mahal. There will be halts for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Souvenir Shopping.  While returning back to Delhi from Agra there will be complimentary brief halts at Mathura and Vrindavan.

If you carry some dry snacks such as biscuits, namkeen and drinking water, than it will be more convenient to you.  In this tour there will be more and more points where you will take breath taking pictures, so come prepared with extra memory card.

Disadvantages:

  • Tiredness
  • Less Time at Monuments

While returning back to Delhi gets sometime very late due to unusual traffic or rush inside monuments. So, travelling on such a long stretch may cause tiredness and are not suggested if you need to travel next day of the tour early in morning.  Further we suggest passengers to carry battery backup, so that they may call cab at night for their hotel transfers.

Selecting this same day bus tour is as per the choice of a tourist and we encourage our passengers to cross check all pros and cons before selecting a tour.  You may do Delhi Agra Bus Tour booking also at Delhi Agra Mathura Vrindavan Same Day Tour  Since at weekends and in holiday season demand of these tour tickets are high, so book your seats timely.

Pay Fine for Overstay at Taj Mahal

Get Ready to Pay Taj Mahal Fine

Tourist visiting Taj Mahal will be permitted to remain inside maximum for 3 hours and beyond that there will be a fine.

Taj Mahal entry ticket will be valid for 3 hours. So, if you remain inside Taj Mahal beyond than that time limit, fine will be imposed.

This step has been imposed in order to manage foot fall inside this wonder of the world.

Fatehpuri Masjid

The third largest mosque inside the Walled City of Delhi is a lesser known mosque made by Shah Jahan in the memory of his lesser known wife Fatehpuri Begum.

This is a red sandstone structure without any tall minarets or huge domes.  Even though the central dome of this mosque looks like of marble, which is actually of lime mortar.

Fatehpuri Masjid history is filled with pathos.  After the 1857 revolt at Delhi by British Indian Army, this mosque was first damaged by the Britishers and than sold to a Hindu merchant and was returned to the faithfuls.

Park of Seven Wonders at Delhi

‘Waste to Wonder’ theme park

The waste to wonder’ theme park is newly added tourist spot in Delhi’s heart made from the waste scrape.  It is situated at Rajiv Gandhi Smriti Van near Sarai Kale Khan Inter State Bus Terminal.  The park show ases grand replicas of the Taj Mahal, Effil Tower, Statue of Liberty, Great Pyramid of Giza, Leaning KTower of Pisa, Christ the Redeemer  and Rome’s Colosseum. The structures are built from 150 tonnes of scrap from the MCD’s scrap yards, which includes automobile parts and metal from rods, iron sheets, nuts and bolts. Since the clones are made from scrap metal, anti-rust enamel is being applied on them. To give out details of monuments, there will be stone plinths with every replica, providing information about both – original and duplicate of the wonder.  It took 180 days to built by more than 100 artists, welders, and helpers.

  1. Statue Of Liberty 35 feet tall replica of the has been created using seven to eight tonnes of waste. While the pedestal has been created using old pipes, metal railings and angles, giving the look of bricks, circular rings on it have been created using car rims. In her left hand, Roman liberty goddess holds a tablet carved from a MCD bench and metal sheets and in the right hand, she holds a torch fabricated from old bike and its chain. Lastly, her hair has been made using cycle chains.
  2. Brazil’s Christ square pipes from benches have been put horizontally to make the pedestal, electric poles have been placed vertically to make lower part of the statute’s dress. Also, engine parts have been used to replicate the detailing in the hands and motorbike chains have been used to create hair.
  3. Paris’s Eiffel Tower 70 feet tall twin of wrought-iron lattice Eiffel Tower originally from Paris, France, has been created using 40 tonnes of automobile waste including petrol tanks from trucks, clutch plates, C channels (structural channel used in construction), and angles. All the three floors of the replica were created separately and then assembled with the help of a crane. The replica created by artist Sandip Pisalkar from Vadodara, does do justice to the original structure that was built in 1889 by Gustave Eiffel.
  4. Taj Mahal Replica of the Taj Mahal, symbol of love was created in five and a half months with the help of 24 labourers and 30 tonnes of waste. The beautiful metal structure has been crafted using 1600 cycle rings, electric pole pipes, old pans, park benches, swings, angles, truck springs and sheets. While domes have been created using 2” pipes (cut into pieces), truck sheets have been used to create intricate design and window and door frame has been made using benches.
  5. World’s Largest Amphitheatre Colosseum From Rome Comes To Delhi Massive stone amphitheater known as the Colosseum was commissioned around A.D. 70-72 by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian dynasty as a gift to the Roman people. Taking inspiration from the same, SDMC commissioned 16’ 6” replica of the Colosseum in Delhi using seven tonnes of waste including electric poles, metal railings, bench, automobile spare parts and other scrap metal. Also, 410 car wheels have been used to make arches.
  6. Leaning Tower Of Pisa The tower of Pisa which got the prefix ‘leaning’ because it started tilting during its construction in the 12th century now has its clone in Delhi. 39 feet replica was built using 10.5 tonnes of waste at 60-80 degree angle. While 211 arches spread out in eight storeys have been fabricated from cycle rim, diamond designs in between the arches have been made from metal sheets and pipes have been used to give the look of pillars.
  7. Egypt’s Pyramid Of Giza The Great Pyramid of Giza which is the oldest of the seven wonders of the ancient world now has a look-alike in south-east Delhi. The 110 layer structure has been created using 10,800 feet scrap angles weighing 10-12 tonnes
