Travel in August.

Hi All,

This is my first trip to Delhi with family( 2 boys aged 6 & 9 years ) who are very keen to explore Delhi and visit TAJ in Agra. We will be in Delhi for 5 days and planning to travel to Agra by Shatabdhi train. We would like to stay in a hotel that has breakfast included. Kids are not used spicy food and hot weather so it is going to be a challenge. Is there a good area to stay ? how reliable are the taxi drivers?

There are great reviews of some 5* & 4* hotels but we are not sure about the area and how to get to the sightseeing places. Some one suggested staying at Piccadilly hotel and travel by metro around city. I am not sure if these places are accessible by train and not needing another transportation once we reach the destination. (For example, In Rome, you get out of the metro and the coliseum is in front of you across the street.) Is it best to go to Agra by train or take a taxi ? Our kids have travel sickness so we have to drug them if it is a 5hr journey. Can you also suggest some fun places where kids might enjoy. Please do give as many suggestions as possible. Thanks for making time for us.
