Visit to Delhi / Agra

I am planning to visit Delhi & Agra between 05/11/2018 (Monday) and 11/11/2018 (Sunday). My itinerary is as follows:

5th (Monday) : reaching Delhi by afternoon (Scheduled time is 13:25 hrs.)

5th afternoon & 6th full day (Tuesday): sight seeings in Delhi

7th (Wednesday): Morning starting for Agra via Fatehpur Sikri in private vehicle. Reaching Agra by evening after visiting Fatehpur Sikri

8th (Thursday) : Full day sight seeing : Taj Mahal and Agra Fort (is this OK? Is Taj mahal take 1 full day?)

9th (Friday) : Rest of the sight seeing in Agra up to afternoon and then proceeding to Delhi & reaching Delhi by evening

10th (Saturday) : Full day in Delhi

11th (Sunday) : Half day in Delhi and returning (Scheduled time is 17:30 hrs.)

Can anybody, please, suggest whether the timings are alright for proper sightseeing of the places and also whether the planning is OK.

Google map shows Time to cover Delhi to Agra as 03 hours 10 minutes, Delhi to Fatehpur Sikri as 04 hours 10 minutes and Agra to Fatehpur Sikri as 59 minutes. Please also suggest how far this estimation of times is realistic.

Your planning is perfect stick to it..it doesn't need much change.Time allotted for both cities is also fine.

Driving time between Delhi>Agra is 4 hours approx,Agra to Fatehpur Sikri is 1 hour approx one way,Fatehpur Sikri takes 2 hours to walk around...Delhi to Fatehpur Sikri is around 4-5 hours...

In Agra you can do Taj early in the morning in order to avoid crowds...Thursday gets busy as it is closed on Fridays..can do Agra Fort and Baby Taj and Mehtabh Bagh in a day...can do Sikandra(Akbars Tomb) and Dayal bagh on the following day....rest is all fine with your itinerary.

Regards

Dear Sir,

Actually, I did not understand the "per night per room", you have mentioned. All standard hotels are booked that way only, isn't it?

Halo sir

You have correctly decided what you have to do but time to agra from delhi is approx 3.5 to 4 hours.

From agra to fatehpur sikri it takes 1 hour 15 min to reach including traffic.

Google map only shows idea but not reality as traffic needs to be consider.

Sir,better hire servive of any travel company to make it more perfect.

Regards

Fully agree with you itinerary but need to add some sightseeing in Agra such as Itimad-ud-Daulah, Mehtab-Bagh, Radha swami Dayal Bagh and Tomb of Akbar (Sikandara). If you want to visit some Krishna temple then add half day sightseeing of Mathura while returning to Delhi.
