Now I will tell you what is my experience on this journey. First of all I will tell you why I am going to Agra. Obviously to visit TAJ MAHAL and more great places. Visiting the splendid Mughal monuments at Agra one can't miss the bustling roads of the city which are always full of life. The area starting from Taj Mahal to Jama Masjid provides a stark disparity between the splendid edifices and the raw and rustic streets of the city.
We spent an entire morning driving through these old streets of the city and thus we got opportunity to view the real life in the city. The small tea shops, restaurants at every corner and people busy with their daily routine work is all we got to see in the city.
The city is decked with numerous spectacular Mughal buildings on one hand and on the other side it has a perfect contrast of its rustic streets. Unfortunately the city is in a bad condition due to ignorance of the state government still the city contains its own charm with interesting sites and friendly people. Thus one must surely stop at one of the local tea shops for catching a full view of the city.
I think car is the best way to travel as there is no Airport in Agra. You can enjoy the whole experience and stop anywhere you want. There are quite a few good restaurants on the way and some serve really great buffet food.
If you are coming from Jaipur side then it is a good option to visit Fatehpur Sikri before entering Agra. That is what we did and then we could relax at the hotel for the rest of the day.
Jaipur to Agra route is four lane tracking and it is better to move in morning near about 5-6 am if you want to return back to Jaipur in night. There are many sightseeing attraction on the way like Abhaneri step well, deeg palace and Bharatpur bird sanctuary, Bharatpur museum and Fateh pur sikiri.
You will find good midway like Gangour motel, Rajasthani motel and one more midway that is RTDC mahuwa midway. It is unsafe during night to stop at any dhabas or restaurant where usually truck drivers stop for rest.

AC bus should be chosen to travel so that you will not be tired and can enjoy further in Agra. From Jaipur it takes around 5 hours to reach Agra. Bus stops at midway for 20 minutes where one can take light breakfast of good quality. I suggest to carry good collection of songs with you to enjoy journey with music.
For the journey, Jaipur to Agra I have decided to travel by bus. I booked my ticket in a bus service. My ticket was sleeper coach. It was really nice coach. The bus was also very good. Bus staff are also very good and nice behavior person. The bus was too in quality like sleeper coach, window mirror, drinking water etc. WiFi facility was also available in this bus. LCD TV was also in every coach for entertainment, I enjoyed it. After all I want to say that I am fully satisfied with this bus service.
Agra is situated at a distance of 265 km from Jaipur. Land of one of the Seven Wonders of the World; the Taj Mahal, Agra is well connected to Jaipur by road and train. However, the best way to reach Agra from Jaipur is by road, a journey of about 5 ? hours by bus. On the way, there are present several ATMs, hospitals and rest stops. Besides eating joints such as Golden Dragon and Niros, there are various dhabas serving traditional Rajasthani and Mughlai food on the way.
