We left New Delhi on the 18th October 2014 at 11 am and headed for the Yamuna Expressway. This toll road is by far quicker than any other route to reach Agra. We drove a distance of 211 kilometers and reached our hotel at 2.30 pm.
Only close to New Delhi and Agra town did we experience some congestion on the roads.
Here are some sights we saw along the way.
