On arrival to Agra, check into the hotel. Agra is the quintessential Mughal City, where the world marvels at the epitome of love, beauty and sacrifice, the Taj Mahal, one of the Wonders of the World. So awe-inspiring is the monument that Agra has been immortalised as the City of the Taj. As visitors walk down the narrow bustling streets, they cannot help but wonder, if a man they see contentedly smoking a hookah, is a direct descendent of some bygone Mughal.

This afternoon enjoy a visit to Agra Fort (Red Fort). A fascinating sight, it showcases a high level of ornamentation and the Kohinoor diamond was reportedly part of the furnishings.

The fort's artwork mixes Persian, European and Indian art, resulting in a unique Shahjahani style rich in form, expression and colour.

After breakfast, depart for a city tour of Varanasi. The banks of the Ganges, considered to be a sacred river by the Hindus, offer the centre of much of the religious activity that occurs in the city. The ghats (steps) built along the banks for access to the river for religious activity also form a major source of attraction here.

Other interesting places you will visit include Alamgir Mosque, Durga Temple, Vishwanath Temple, Bharat Mata Temple, Tulsi Manas Temple, and the Archaeological Museum.

In the afternoon, enjoy an excursion to Sarnath. Sarnath is devoted to Lord Shiva, the most sacred shrine in Varanasi. It is about 15 kilometres from the holy city of Varanasi, where Buddha conveyed his long-esteemed first oration. The illustrious Mantra, "Buddham Sharnam Gachhami", owes its foundation to Sarnath.

Other important information
 
TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER 
Tour Guide  
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on the history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction where they are guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves it at the end of the tour; they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader  
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides at each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village and offer information on the place visited on the bus. However, they are not required to have specific art, architecture, or historical knowledge. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and, if caught doing so, can be fined.  
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
