Ajanta Caves Independent Day Trip from Aurangabad City
From USD 60.00
Visit the Ajanta Caves with the convenience of this private round-trip transfer service from Aurangabad. No need to hassle with group tours or public transportation, simply book your private transfer and ride in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle with bottled water provided. Your driver provides a guidebook to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed cave site, and you'll have about four hours to explore the caves on your own.
What to Expect

Begin at 7:30am when your English speaking driver will come pick you up you at your hotel in Aurangabad City.

After a 2-hour drive, you will reach the Ajanta Caves. Before proceeding to the entrance site of the caves, stop to purchase a refreshment or to grab a quick meal.

Proceed to the Ajanta Caves by a shuttle bus, which is approximately a 15 minute ride. Then, purchase your entrance tickets and explore Ajanta Caves. This magnificent work of art was unknown for more than 1,000 years and was discovered by accident by a British cavalry officer by the name of John Smith during a hunting expedition. Today, the caves have been deemed by the Archaeological Survey of India as one of the "finest surviving examples of Indian art,particularly painting."

After spending about 4 hours exploring the caves, return to the parking area to meet your driver and proceed back to your hotel.
