To visit Taj Mahal and Agra fort you need at least 4 hours and 4 hours for Fatehpur Sikri as it is outside Agra 45 kms away...Taj and Fort you can do by Auto Rickshaw and Fatehpur Sikri by Govt operated Buses from Idgah Bus Stand and the other option is to hire a car for all the monuments.

2 hours for Tajmahal

1 hour for Agra fort

30 minutes transportation time from Taj to Agra fort.

Fatehpur sikri 45kms approx and will take around 4 hours including transportation time.

Best option is hiring a private car for whole tour for visiting all sites Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehur Sikri. If time permits also visit Itimad-ud-Daulah (Baby Taj).

Its better to hire a car for your tour and Taj is the main concern as day by day the no of tourists are increasing and same during the festival holidays Taj gets bit more busy so rest of your tour depends how much your time is spent to visit Taj. At least you need 2 hours for Taj and 2 hours for fort later 1 hour to reach fatehpursikri 2 hour tour and again 1 hour to come back so all togeteher you need 8 hours.

Hope it would be helpful
