Travel Tips from people who've been to Agra
Famous for the Taj Mahal Agra is most popular with tourists therefore being very crowded. Foreign tourists have to pay way over the odds to get into see the Taj Mahal than Indian tourists, so its worth knowing that fridays are free.
One of the worst cities in India, in my opinion. Get in, see the Fort and the Taj, and get out! The touts are the most vicious I've ever encountered. Yikes!
If you're travelling with friends/family, it may be cheaper to rent a car with driver than to take the train to travel around India. If you're lucky, your driver will show you some great places. We did rent a car for 10 days, from Agra, and visited Keoladeo National Park, Sikarh, Nawalgarh, Bikaner (and the famous temple of rats), Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Ranakpur, Udaipur, Chittorgarh and finally Jaipur, quite a trip...
