  • Good place to spend 2/3 hours. Taking a guide is recommended but they will ask for 500/600bucks initially. DO BARGAINING AND IT WILL COME DOWN TO 50-100BUCKS. You will take a time-ride back to Mughal era spending a few hours here.
  • Lovely n historical place, Delhi's Red fort was inspired by this Agra Fort, lots of historical things, n a must go place for the foreign tourists to get to know Indian historical fort or palaces architecture... If you study well or able to get a good guide then you will know how rich Indian culture was even 1000s of years before... # there's also taking wall, which means if you whisper in a corner of the hall then any one on the other side of the hall can listen your voice very loud n clearly... Furthermore there are many exciting things to explore in depending on the interest of the visitor)... Enjoy...👍
  • This fort is awesome place to see if you love historical buildings and architecture of ancient times. Very neat and clean, well maintained by authorities. It is very big fort so you must have 2--3 hours for sightseeing. You can relax at some places inside. From the roof of fort river yamuna and tajmahal are visible.
  • A historical place that is huge and mesmerizing. It has a lot of little places inside to see, so prepare to spend at least 2 hours if you want to have an experience.
  • The place is good but the guide services are worst here. Also, only half of the fort is allowed to visit. So, I recommend not to hire any guide there. There knowledge is also not upto the mark.
