If you have a spare day, a side trip from Delhi to the evocative Taj Mahal is a must! Not only is the Taj Mahal India's most recognized monument, it's one of the top historical attractions in India as well. Leave early in the morning, and you can be back in Delhi in the evening. The duration of this trip is approximately 12 hours.

2. Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri Day Trip

The deserted Mogul capital of Fatehpur Sikri can also be visited on a day trip from Delhi, in combination with the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. A city that was once the proud capital of the Mughal Empire in the 16th century, Fatehpur Sikri now stands deserted as a well preserved ghost town. It was abandoned by its occupants after only 15 years due to insufficient water supply. The duration of this trip is approximately 13 hours.

3. Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Kachhpura Village Day Trip

The duration of this tour is one night/two days.

5. The Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle -- comprised of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur -- is India's most popular tourist circuit. Roughly located an equal distance of around 200-250 kilometers (125-155 miles) from each other in northern India, the cities provide a classic and unforgettable introduction to the country and its charms. What also makes the Golden Triangle a great tourist circuit is its accessibility. The duration of this tour is three nights/four days.

If you have a few more days spare, you can add the painted havelis of Mandawa (in the Shekhawati region) to you tour, or add Pushkar to your tour.
