  28. Nice post. I like your post very much. thanks for sharing it. As Agra is very well connected to New Delhi, anyone who wishes to see the beauty of Taj can have a same day tour to this city. There are many travel agencies which offer Same Day Agra Tour By Car. Delhi being the capital of India is business and cultural hub. Every day, thousands of people come to Delhi for their business work from the various distant part of the country so it can be very easy for them to have one day tour of Taj, which otherwise is not possible from their base town. They just have to leave Delhi in the morning and they can return to Delhi on the same day after visiting the Taj.
