The name of the train is Gatimaan Express which departs Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station at 8 am every day except Friday(Taj is closed on every Friday) and arrives Agra at 9.50 am (Agra cantt) and departs Agra at 17.50 hours from the same station for Nizamuddin.....

In between this span of time you can easily visit Taj Mahal,Agra Fort,Baby Taj and Mehtabh Bagh across the river Yamuna which flows in parallel to Taj Mahal.

You can Pre arrange a car for pick up/drop as well as for sightseeing in Agra in order to avoid the last minute hassle..in order to make your trip memorable you can hire the services of approved guide for your entire stay in Agra.

For day trip, we have one very special train (Gatimaan express), which departs from Delhi (Hazrat Nizamuddin) at 8:10 and reaches Agra at 9:50. This is India’s fastest train and this only runs between Delhi and Agra (no halt between these 2 stations). There are 2 classes in this train. First is executive class and second class is chair car. Breakfast will be given in this train and price is included in the fare. Distance is 188 km, travel time 100 mins by this special train

You can return back to Delhi by this train. At the evening, it departs from Agra at 17:50 and reaches Delhi (Hazrat Nizamuddin)at 19:30.

Please write here for any suggestion or help.

It's good train to travel agra but don't use for way back because its very late hrs arrive in delhi so way back use other train known as Gatiman express. It's very durable and perfect for sane and good for those travellers those have time. Thx

Dear rakesh_yadavtour, both post #1 and post #2 are recommending this train that departs from Agra at 17:50 and reaches Delhi (Hazrat Nizamuddin)at 19:30....that is not too late. I am confused by your post.

Take the train Gatiman express from Delhi. And take the same train to return to Delhi in evening..

You can easily do Taj mahal and Agra fort in between enough time for lunch.

You can book car and guide for Agra tour from any travel company which ever you like .. it is always good to book things in advance. So Driver will wait for you at Agra train station.

In case you don't get confirm train tickets then second option. For you is to book car for Agra same day tour . It is also very good option.

Please note Taj mahal is closed on every Friday.

Yes,Gatimaan express is the best option for to and fro from Delhi to Agra.

It's better to pre-booked tickets and car for local sight seen in Agra in advance to make Journey hassle free.
