Step by step
Days 1-2: Delhi
Other must-see locations in Delhi include Rashtrapati Bhavan (Presidential Residence whose buildings date back to the British Raj), National Museum, Qutb Minar, Baba Kharak Singh Marg (street where you can appreciate special Indian crafts) and Humayun’s Tomb.
This is quite a dense program but it is realistic nonetheless if you dedicate it two full days. It's advisable to use the services of a taxi or private driver to move around efficiently.
Day 3: Agra (Taj Mahal)
Day 4: Fatehpur Sikri
After the Taj Mahal you can contine your trip and reach Fatehpur Sikri, the ruins of a city that was abandoned in the 16th century. Count on about an hour and a half to reach Fatehpur Sikri from Agra by car. [/day]
