Want to know the reasonable fare for the following point-to-point during daytime:

1. Taj Mahal --> Agra Fort
2. Agra Fort --> Baby Taj
3. Baby Taj --> Mehtab Bagh
4. Mehtab Bagh --> Shanti Lodge
5. Shanti Lodge --> Idgah bus stand

Thanks a lot.

Taj Mahal Agra Fort is not very far away. Should not be more than 20 rupees.

They ask for at least 100 rupees for Baby Taj from Agra fort but then let me add even though I am an Indian living in India, I am a very bad at bargaining.

It is very difficult to tell the exact price because every thing depends on bargaining.I think as Agra Fort is just 2.5 km from Taj Mahal, so auto rickshaws will not charge more than Rs 20.

The rickshaw drivers in Agra are ruthless to tourists.

Even for the shortest journeys in India (about 1 km) I never paid less than 50 rupee unless you can get the police to get a driver for you (which I did on a number of occassions!).

As jollymazumdar said, it's all about bargaining and how good you are at acting.
