The fastest of the Indian train route. The train run 150 Km/Hr. Its takes 2 hr to reach from Delhi to Agra. And the train catering system was very good. The train is very beautiful about the cleaning. I like the journey with my family. I wish whenever I travel next time, I will definitely will go in train.
Taj Yamuna Expressway is definitely one of the best roads to drive on in India. The roads are flat and well-built with proper signal. A road trip to Agra is definitely worth going for. Truly enjoyed the city and had a great time. Agra, apart from being famous for the Taj Mahal is also very famous for Peda (An Indian Sweet) and street chaats. If you are fond of street food, am sure you would enjoy the food in this city.
Awesome fun. Great fun with friends and enjoyed a lot. Great experience, took one day for overall journey. Visited Taj and Agra Fort and did a lot of shopping in Agra local market. Came back the very same day. Enjoyed very much and had fun in dhaba, though the trip was hectic, every minute was worth it.
My family boarded on the intercity train. It was winter day 31st Dec, it was a very hectic journey as the the train was late by 3.5 hours due to fog. The normal traveling hours were three but that day it took around double time. We were planning to hire a taxi earlier but due to fog and road accidents preferred the train route, but we were unable to reach on time.
I have travel through Yamuna Expressway. Distance of 200 Kms covered in 2.5 hours. Really a wonderful and delightful to watch the road views. One must travel through this Expressway instead of NH-2. Costly journey as I have to pay toll charges but it saves my too much time.
