Hi there

We are working in Hyderabad (for a few weeks) and are hoping to take a long weekend late April to see the Taj Mahal. We are thinking it might be best to fly to Delhi Friday night. Catch the express train to Agra Saturday morning and have the day/night in Agra. From there we are at a loss. If possible we would like see Jaipur, then fly back out of Delhi sometime Monday. Some questions...

1) Is this too much to do in the time frame (I know that we will never have enough time)?
2) Should we get a car for a day or two within Agra (air conditioning is sounding very good).
3) How should we get between Agra and Jaipur?
4) Tips for flights from Hyderabad to Delhi? I have done some research on the web, but most prices are in Rupee and I think we have to pay the 'special' foreigner price. Would we be best to use a travel agent?

Any ideas/suggestions most appreciated. There will be 4 of us travelling together.

Many thanks, in advance.

Spend the Sunday at Fatehpur Sikri, which is 40 kms. from Agra and return to Delhi that night. Fly out of Delhi the next day. Avoid Jaipur on this very short trip !

Friendly warning : Late April / May is not the right time for touring North Indian plains.
Whoever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to shop !
