Hello! I was wondering if it is possible to leave Jaipur early in the morning with car and driver, visiting fatehpur sikri and abhaneri step well before reaching agra, and still see the Taj Mahal for sunset, and still make it in time to catch my 8pm train ride from agra fort station. Thank you in advance!

Yes it is possible, If you travel in Bus from Jaipur to Fatehpur Sikri and hire Taxi at Fatehpur Sikri it will save some money.
Best Regards,

If you leave Jaipur around 6 in the am. You'd be at Abhaneri around 7:30 and then FS later in the morning. That gives you 3 hours for FS and then the Taj by the evening. It will be terribly rushed and you'll almost certainly miss Sikandara and quite possibly the fort as well.

But it is possible!

We used the most amazing driver in Rajasthan. His name is Jaswant Singh and can be contacted via Facebook, or on +919829074322.
Jaswant speaks perfect English and is great fun. More importantly, he is very knowledgeable. He has previously driven Mick Jagger chelsea Clinton and Richard gere around Rajasthan too and has good stories about them. 4 of us (my wife and two other girls) spent 6 days with him, driving from udaipur to jodhpur and jaisalmer. We often stopped for photos, met with local camel herders, stopped for chai with the locals. It was the best week we spent in India in over 2 months here. The desert camp he brought us to outside of jaisalmer was fantastic , with camel trips for sunset etc.
He also brought us to his family home in jodhpur and to his friends traditional Indian wedding where we were treated like celebrities!
You may find him useful to use for some of your trip...
