Agra is situated at a distance of 197 km from Delhi. Famous for the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Agra is well connected to Delhi by road and train.

The places covered during the journey from Delhi to Agra are Delhi - 30 km -> Faridabad - 60 km -> Hodal - 55 km -> Mathura - 52 km -> Agra. Several ATMs, hospitals, rest stops and dhabas fall on the way. Food joints such as Haldirams and McDonald's are present on the route. Petrol pumps of Indian Oil and Hindustan Petroleum (HP), among others, are also available at regular intervals.

I travelled from Delhi to Agra via Yamuna Express Way. It was in month of May, 2015. Journey was great, road condition was excellent. We left from Mother Dairy Delhi and went to see the Taj Mahal. We started journey at 7 Am and reached Taj Mahal at around 12:30 in noon.

Road to reach the Yamuna Express Way was also good, it goes via Noida, so you get a chance to have a look at skylines of Noida [Just avoid the rush hours of traffic, otherwise you would spend much time even before you reach the Express Way].

As I said, road condition was excellent, traffic was very less and toll is also OK (500+ for return journey). But it has some negative points as well : it has very less food courts, traffic is very less; so if you face some issue in your car, it would be difficult to get any help, no communication centers on the way. If I compare it with Pune-Mumbai expressway then:

Pros : No steep turns, road condition is better, traffic is less

Cons: Communication facilities are less, food courts are very distant

Overall its a good experience to go via Yamuna Express way but just keep in mind following things:

1. Keep enough water and food with you.

2. Check your vehicle thoroughly before you hit the express way.

3. Avoid reaching/crossing Noida in peak hours.

With the Yamuna Expressway you can reach Agra in quick time. Expressway is of world class facilities with smooth road all the way to Agra. It takes about 2 hr 30 min to reach Agra which actually is pretty quick. On your way to Agra you can find refresh points after every few kilometres which are also maintained pretty well. Even an amateur rider can drive his/her car on the expressway, which shows what a wonderful highway it is.

I was enjoy my journey very much but when I was entered in Agra I was fed up with JAM at Mahal, a majestic world heritage site to be enjoyed on a full moon night. Really romantic destination for a newly wed couple. Apart from Taj Mahal one should definitely visit Fatehpur Sikri.

I enjoyed my journey a lot to Agra on expressway. It was a good experience and I enjoyed the family trip in my best car Hyundai Verna but toll taxes are very high in this route. Govt should decrease the toll prices to attract more travellers.
