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.
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.
United States of ...
This tour was amazing and Taj Mahal was just so marvelous! My guide was this guy who has two master’s degree in Indian literature and history, and working on a PhD in architecture or something. Very smart and knowledgeable. We also did optional photographer option – he commanded us to pose in certain ways and pictures came out lovely. I recommend everyone to do this! Another highlight of the tour was lunch. Lunch was arranged on a rooftop of a fancy hotel and the view, I tell you, was crazy good! You can see the entire city of Agra, including Taj Mahal and Agra Fort very clearly! Also, the food was definitely one of the best I had in India. Numnumnum. The ride is from Delhi is pretty long but the value and experience makes this tour a worthwhile. I highly recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in Taj Mahal and best of Agra in one day!
The Taj was magnificent. I'm not one to be easily in awe of things, but the beauty of this structure definitely put a smile on my face. Sanjay, our guide was interesting and very knowledgeable. The rooftop lunch was absolutely fantastic, some of the best Indian food I had during my stay and the view was great. You could see monkeys running across the rooftops. Red Fort was also very interesting and Sanjay was very adept at guiding us while integrating new stories about the Taj Mahal in relation to the fort. Often overlooked in tour reviews is an assessment of the driver. Well our driver for the day was Ravi, an incredibly cordial and earnest individual whom I am glad to have met on this trip.
It was amazing! :- Thank you! :- 3
amazing experience and highly recommended, comprehensive tours and great driver made for a perfect trip. many thanks!
Got to see the Taj Mahal and Red Fort in Agra easily and comfortably. Guide gave good knowledge on the buildings/history/navigating the crowds and good spots for photos. Transportation was comfortable and the driver was safe when you come to Delhi/Agra you will appreciate this with the local driving style!. Only downside was the hinting of taking us to see knotted carpets, jewellery and local craft code for taking you to a shop where they get a kickback/commission - having previous experience in this I was clear this is not something we wanted to do, and the hint was taken. The restaurant recommendation in Agra was terrible - worst Indian food I have tasted anywhere in the world. Overall a decent trip, and worth doing.
Great tour. Guide is knowledgeable. Was able to see the baby taj and that's not typically something people get to see, so it was an added bonus. The guide/driver were flexible when we wanted to stop and get some iced coffee and cool down as the weather was really hot and humid that day.
Had an amazing time in Agra, guide was very helpful and friendly.
Great guide and quick and safe ride from Delhi. I had to cut my trip short due to a work commitment and the tour operator called to make sure everything was ok. Great service.
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Driver was great and drove safy at all times. We could see how much they enjoy what they do. This tour wouldn't be the same without our guide Kumar.
The traxi that picked up us at the hotel was in time. Nice driver. In our case we had a good air conditioned car and the car was in good conditions. It was 3 hour and a half drive from Delly to Agra. We meet with the Guide in Agra. He was great, and took us to the Taj Mahal. It is Awsome! This is somnethig you must see in life. The guide asked to take us to the agra fort but we wanted to stay longer in Taj Mahal and he did not complain. He was ver kind and instructive. After 2 hours there he took us to a carpet store. We were there for arround 20 minutes and left. We did not buy anything. Then he asked us if we like to go to a marble stor and we said no because we weren't goin to by anithing. So after that we went back to Delly.
We had so much fun in Agra. Our driver Manoj Kumar and tour guide Hussein were very helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend these two guys as they will ensure your trip to Agra is safe and fun. Kudos to Viator for having these two guys in your team!
We loved the tour, particularly the Taj Mahal and Red Fort. We had a wonderful driver Raza who took great care to ensure our every need was met. We felt extremely safe on the roads in his care, even in the chaos that is india traffic! Mahi, our guide in Agra was also great - extremely well informed and helping us to get the best possible photos. We would highly recommend this tour.
Definitely would not recommend the agency Get Holidays in Delhi.
The way we were treated leaves much to be desired. Without breakfast, stopping at a place where we could not buy food
Arriving in Agra, contact with the guide was listless. We ask you to take us to buy breakfast, and his response was that we can delay the visit.
At the Baby Taj, the guide, that his name not write, pressed us not to use our devices to take photos because they were prohibited under.
His derogatory comments towards the builders of the monuments were remarkable, incisors and tasteless, besides criticizing our Western culture in dress and lead.
Later, in the lobby of the Taj Mahal, he gave us a bottle of water, according to the courtesy of the Tourism Authority when our tour said it would have water at all times.
All this because he had his touch: a photographer who forced us to pose to his instructions, having freedom to do so to our taste. At this point, the guide disrespected me and we had to clarify that he had been disrespectful.
After the incident, the displeasure of the guide to continue advising us on the Taj, and began to harass my partner with personal questions, in very bad taste was evident.
Upon leaving, the guide did not let us stop to buy souvenirs
Later, in the Agra Fort, always attentive to your cell phone and speaking in their language, restricting the information. After the visit, we had to require the guide to take us to buy souvenirs
The restaurant for lunch was normal
I wish to express the bad taste that left us the visit, the guide was extremely rude, pushy, obnoxious and intrusive, playing and asking for our stuff. The guide told us that the tour is done at noon, and we had delayed for more because we took MANY PHOTOS
We traveled from Panama to India to see the Taj, and we though that taking a private tour would have enough to learn and explore, without time restrictions.
I recommend not using Get Holidays services, the quality offered is 0 stars.
We recommend this tour without any hesitation! The driver is a nice young man, who is always on time and drive safely. The tour guide is also very nice and professional. Thanks to them, we had a great time in Delhi/Agra/Taj Mahal!
