Getting To Agra by Road
Avoid government buses if possible.If you are traveling in a group and luxury bus is arranged by your hotel or tour operator they may be fine to use. However if you have the option choose a private taxi. When you rent a private car in India, it usually comes with a driver. Prices for private taxis can be negotiated depending on the number of days you need the taxi. Private taxi charges also vary with the make of the car you choose.
In Delhi most taxis will quote a price starting from Rupees 7/Km.Check about night charges. So....,come and have a lifetime experience of what an emperor did in memory of his beloved wife.
