For many, Agra is considered as the tourist’s paradise, all thanks to the presence of the majestic Taj Mahal. Most Agra tour packages make mention of Taj Mahal but a number of other unexplored yet majestic places also exist in Agra.
Agra tourism provides an entire list of places that can be visited in this magical city. For example, the Agra Fort is known to be a prime tourist spot, with the fort itself making up a sight to behold. Build in 1565, big red-sandstone structure is situated on the bank of the River Yamuna, and was constructed by Emperor Akbar. It earlier served as a military base but was later converted into a palace. Mehtab Bagh is situated right in front of the great Taj Mahal and is known to be the sight for the rumored Black Taj Mahal. These picturesque gardens are made so that they are in sync with the main gardens of the Taj Mahal, making them an absolute treat to watch. Most Agra tour packages offer basic Agra tours, but one can always tailor them according to ones needs and requirements.
Agra is also famous for its local cuisine. The earthen flavors of the traditional Mughal cuisine are known as one of the major attraction in Agra. Not just that, but Rajput cuisine is also prevalent in the area, making it an absolute treat for the tourists.

Apart from the regular Agra tours, basic Agra tour packages also provide a number of these options.
