Delhi is located at a distance of about 210 km from Agra. Delhi, the seat of Indian government, is well-connected to Agra by air, rail and road.
However, the best way to reach Delhi from Agra is by road, a journey of less than 3 hours. But with the Yamuna Expressway now open to public, the journey is cut short to a little more than two hours. The major towns covered on the way are Agra 57 km -> Mathura 120 km -> Faridabad 12 km -> Badarpur 18 km -> Delhi. There are many petrol pumps run by IOC and HPCL on the way. Many fast food chains like Mc Donalds can also be found along the highway at regular intervals. They have clean restrooms as well.
The trip was awesome and the travel by train was nice as I saw the most beautiful monument in the world The Taj and also the beauty of Agra, Yamuna River and various kind of fort like Lal Kila and Panchmahal. Also saw the Fatehpur Shikri. At last I would say it was a very good experience.
It was an educational trip to Delhi. We had our exams for Indian railways. We saw India Gate. It was a great experience watching a great monument. Amar Jyoti, the sign of sacrifices of Indian soldiers.
We hired Toyota Innova Vista from Agra to Delhi. The road to Delhi from Agra was really good and we took Yamuna Express Way. Since we had kids on board we had to stop couple of times but it did help us to relax. The driver was very helpful and friendly.
Really awesome travelling experience while I was going to Delhi. I was going there by using my car and using Yamuna Express Way which was the perfect road that I have ever seen in India. Itís a very large road and there are no speed breakers. The minimum speed of vehicle is 100km per hour. So I reached Noida very quick but from Noida to Delhi I took a long time due to road traffic but overall experience was good.
There are multiple routes from Delhi to Agra, but we took the expensive but the fastest route to Agra - Yamuna Expressway. The expressway starts from Noida and ends at Agra. The toll for the entire journey is Rs. 320 for cars. The roads are more or less empty and the car can easily cruise at a speed of 150 kmph. My own car reached upto a whopping 210 kmph. But we controlled the speed to avoid risking a tyre burst. Although there is no need to take a stop, there are food plazas on the way to take a break or refreshments. The journey is very comfortable and travellers can visit the religious cities of Mathura and Vrindavan enroute to see the famous BankeBihari Temple and Dwarka Dheesh Temple.
