Visit Sikandra, a town close to Agra where there is much rich history to breathe in, including the tomb of the great Mughal Emperor, Akbar. Visit Itmad-ud-Daulah, popularly known as the Baby Taj for its similarities to the Taj Mahal, which it predates. The beautiful mausoleum houses the body of Itimad-ud-Daulah, a poor Persian merchant who found himself in the courts of Emperor Akbar.

WHAT OUR GUESTs SAY

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
