  • Agra: City Full Day Tour

    This morning you will visit the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal is everything that has been said about it and more. Taking 22 years and 20,000 men to build, the white marble was quarried 200 miles away and was transported to the site by a fleet of 1000 elephants. Built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal (literally translated as "Jewel of the Palace"). She died at the age of 39 giving birth to her fourteenth child and he went into mourning for two years, turning away from the business of running an empire and becoming more involved with his other great love--architecture. Feast your eyes on the exquisite intricate marble inlay work!

  • Guilin: Reed Flute Caves & Fubo Hill with Lunch Half Day Tour

After that, you will go to the nearby Elephant Trunk Hill. It is regarded as the symbol of the Guilin landscape. Originally named "Li Hill", "Yi Hill", and "Chenshui Hill", Elephant Trunk Hill has a history spanning 3.6 hundred million years.
