I hesitate to use the phrase “bucket list,” which has received some backlash in recent years. If I were to admit to having a bucket list, though, then certainly a visit to the Taj Mahal neared the top. In fact, we built our entire Indian travel itinerary around our visit to the Taj Mahal — all other destinations and experiences took a backseat.
Our driver picked us up from our Delhi hotel for a private Taj Mahal and Agra Fort tour. We settled in for the three-hour trip from Delhi to Agra. I was thrilled to have a private driver as we wound our way through the bustling Delhi traffic and onto the highway heading to Agra.
