This was an excellent tour Sanjay Shukla did a great job as a tour guide - the Taj Mahal was outstanding. Sanjay Gupta our driver did an excellent job, safe, clean car with lots of snacks.

It was a bumpy, long 3 hour drive from Delhi to Agra, but it was well worth the trip. Our driver was courteous and friendly and arrived on time at our hotel. Our guide, Mohd Jugnu, was a native of Agra and knowledgeable of the history of the sites we visited. He was helpful in taking numerous photos of us at all the best locations. The booking process for the tour was easy and we got numerous emails with information about our guide and driver and contact information if we had any questions.
This was an excellent tour! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and took great care of my group. He brought us around to the best photo spots and was very patient as each person wanted a few snapshots with the Taj Mahal in the back. He provided a wonderful account of the history, and we were also able to bypass all of the lines. The driver was very good as well and ensured we were picked up and dropped back off at our hotel safely. It is a spectacular day, and I highly recommend this tour if you plan on seeing the Taj Mahal.
The sites were naturally incredible, especially Fatepuhr Sikri, but the guides really set this tour apart. The driver was exceptionally friendly, kind, and welcoming. He provided a bit of cultural insights while maintaining periods of good conversation. The guides for all three sites were exceptional. They had a wealth of knowledge, history, and insights to offer. They ensured that I was well taken care of, had my curiosity satisfied, and left quite pleased. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this trip.
Magnificent! Saw so much. Very pleasant staff.
It was great to have a friendly driver and personal tour guide that worked together to ensure you had a good trip as well as a comfortable one.
I just wish Viator gave them a fairer cut of the fee they had charged us, because I got the impression they hadn't.
I was very disappointed with the transport, a car for 5 plus driver. Back row of seats very uncomfortable for 2 people for a long trip of over 3 hours each way. Extreemly cramped when picked up guide in Agra. I expected Viator to be better than this . I have often used Viator and never been disappointed. I scored the trip high despite this because our guide was excellent. Mana not only great guide but a photographer and bird watching expert whixh pleased all of us.
My guide in Agra Shyam, was brilliant and I can't recommend more highly. He made the day interesting and was both helpful and informative. The four and a half hour drive from Delhi to Agra was not so enjoyable. My driver was good but for some reason didn't use the new freeway. A friend who recommended this tour travel time was only two and a half hours each way. The extra four hours of travel made the day very long and much harder to recommend this tour to others.
Great sites but the drive was KILLER. 13hrs from start to finish, on the road for 8.5hrs of the trip!
The only tour package that I found that is willing to take one person at a reasonable price. The entire process were very smooth from end to end. Got a confirmation call almost a minute after I placed the order! The hotel pick up, local guide meet up all happened seamlessly. The tour itself was also pleasant and insightful.
Shanti, our driver made sure that we were always comfortable and well entertained. He is very neat, polite, honest and very professional. He is very knowledgeable about the historical spots in India and speaks very good English. We felt very safe during our day trip from delhi to agra. We highly recommend that you ask for Shanti and I assure you that he will take good care of you. His manager even called us during our last day to make sure that everything was up to our expectation. This package will make your Taj Mahal tour more amazing than you expect it to be.
It was a great experience! The tour guide was very knowledgable, friendly, and we felt a lot more comfortable throughout the day. The drive to Agra is about 3 hours, so that was a little long, but I would still highly recommend this tour to anyone!
Now we know how somebody famous feels, kinda. Walking around the Taj Mahal with our own personal photographer was a once in a lifetime experience which allowed us the opportunity to capture amazing photos we could not have gotten by ourselves. Our photographer did an incredible job of posing us in front of the Taj, but took some candid shots of us when we weren’t looking. Best of all, he managed to keep most of the other tourist our of our shots. Not an easy task at the Taj.
Was a wonderful experience. Can't say enough about how smooth it went and how pleased I was with the service. The driver picked me up at the hotel right on time. The ride to Agra was smooth and the highway was nice. The visit to the Taj Mahal was incredible. The tour guide was excellent and the photographer was as well. Got some great pictures from them. Agra Fort and the Baby Taj were also stops along the way. The ride back was nice and smooth, too, and the driver even detoured so I could see the India Gate. Highly recommended.
Great experience. Beautiful monument. Perfect guide Hussain. Definitely worth to visit.
Excellent driver and guide. Very polite and knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Great driver and good information en route. Hotel and food excellent.
Was a wonderful all day tour seeing the Taj Mahal was the best part of it. Although the driver was a little late for the early morning start. Would definitely recommend it. The tour guide was very knowledgable.
The tour to Agra was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable, personable and spoke good English. Both the Taj Magal and Agra Fort are well worth the trip but go early. I would have given this trip a 5 star but the taxi driver demanded a bigger tip for his trouble. Not impressed with him!
Tour was well organised, everything went very well with Viators partner in India! Good and safe transportation! Good driver and guide! Many thanks for a nice day!
The Itmad-ud-Daulah we only saw from the car window. I only realise now it was on the offering.
Viator, as a tour guide taking care of your customers, you should advise them during the tour, that the Marble Art Palace has pretty nice products, but also convincing staff and not every Customer is able to escape the 75 uplifted prices compared to the expensive shop in our luxury hotel
Unforgettable experience! Tour guide was very friendly and informative. I was on my own and he helped me take loads of photos:
Visiting the Taj Mahal is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many. Therefore, having a tour guide such as Hussain is an added treat because of his deep knowledge of the culture, customs, and traditions that embody the history of the Taj. My wife and I experienced the Taj beyond our imagination because Hussain made sure that we understood the many details of the historic accounts that led to the building of the Taj. He was patient and loves to bring stories alive that one could never find in a guidebook anywhere. Of course, in addition to the Taj, Hussain made sure that we visited the Agra Forth where we walked through the living spaces built for Shah Jahal where he lived in captivity after his overthrow by his son The quotations are mine. Of course after a long day in the heated sun, it was nice to be brought to a nice local restaurant where we indulged in local Agra cuisine with ease as each member of the eatery went above and beyond to ensure that we were pleased. Definitely five stars!
This was a fantastic tour, not only because the Taj Mahal is a must see while in Delhi, but also because the local company that provided the tour guide did a fantastic job facilitating the whole thing. They sent a car to pick us up at the hotel. The driver was kind and made a stop on the drive both ways so we could use restrooms and stretch our legs. Our tour guide, Akash, was awesome! He was a wealth of information but didn't bore us to death with his delivery. He gave us our time to take photos so we never felt rushed. He also was a great photographer for us - taking some of the best shots we have! Very creative and fun photos we'll treasure. The Taj Mahal is breathtaking, but the history and stories behind it are also fascinating. Agra Fort's history is somewhat tied to the Taj Mahal and the story behind the connection was so fun to learn. It's also amazing that back in the time these monuments were built, they had the knowledge and ability to do so many things without the technology we now have available. They are both wonders to see.
The guide is very nice and is quite knowledgeable.
Must not forget the driver whom is sometimes forgotten in these reviews. A very nice guy.
The tour, in particular to the Taj Mahal, was breathtaking, It was helped by a guide who knew his history well. Definitely worth it. Although the included lunch was poor the overall tour was excellent and highly recommended.
