This was a lifetime dream trip and our tour was amazing. I would highly recommend it.
November 2015 - we were collected from our hotel early in the morning the driver was very prompt and helpful. We stopped and had some refreshments and then carried on our journey which was very comfortable and pleasant. The driver was very friendly and helpful. On our arrival at Agra we were met by our guide who spoke very good English and was also very friendly and pleasant. Our trip for the whole day was the most wonderful experience ever - the guide was so helpful and friendly and could not do enough for us. After the trip had finished we went and had lunch at a nearby restaurant which was all included in the trip and this also was absolutely wonderful. The whole day was absolutely brilliant and I would recommend using Viator again for this and any other trip that they can help with. I am already looking at another holiday and would use Viator again for any trips that I may wish to take. Julie Dimes - United Kingdom
We had a fabulous experience visiting Agra from Delhi. It all started with our driver, who took special care to give us a pleasant experience on our long drives to and from Agra. He was well-informed and made sure that we were comfortable. Our guide was terrific. He too was well-informed and taught us so much about the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, which we thoroughly loved. The Taj Mahal was stunning and breathtaking. It was hard to believe that we were there. The Agra Fort surprised us. It was far more interesting that the Red Fort in Delhi. It was so beautiful and so historic. I highly recommend this private tour if you are staying in Delhi.
The trip was excellent from beginning to end. The driver arrived a few minutes earlier at the hotel, very polite and efficient. The guide in Agra, Mr Shyam Rathi, was knowledgeable, sensitive, and caring. He provided a superb tour of the Taj and Agra Fort. He was also an expert photographer and helped in showing us beautiful new angles for the pictures. Highly recommended!
Everything is excellent and on time also guide was proffetional
Just fantastic,over expectation.
Pick up perfectly on time with driver and private guide.Both very professional gentle ,they make our day unforgettable.During the day also a tel check from the agency.Not only highly reccomended,but mandatory to use when needed.
Got picked up by a taxi at 6am. Driver had marginal English, so I was concerned about him also being the guide, but once in Agra was met by Mohammed who did an enthusiastic job showing the monuments as described. It wasn't clear whether lunch was limited to the buffet which was pretty bad, or could include the a la carte options on the menu which looked much more edible. I recommend insisting on the latter if it's not offered. All in all - a very worthwhile day, and ably presented.

An excellent experience and well explained by tour guide. Drive is a testing one from Delhi due to traffic but driver handled in brilliantly. It is a long day and probably does not need the visit to the Persian carpet showroom. The Taj and Red Fort are sufficient on their own.
This trip was excellent from start to finish. My driver Pracass, who was very friendly, arrived at my hotel 15 minutes early to pick me up for trip over to Agra. During my journey, he pointed out a number of landmarks and towns and gave me a brief overview of each one, he even offered to stop to let me take pictures if I wished to. Once we arrived in Agra we met up with my tour guide for the day - Mohd Jugnu - who was excellent and a very pleasent person - his in depth knowledge of the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and the Mini Taj was amazing and made each portion of the tour so much more interesting than other tours I have taken in the past. He was also an excellent photographer - he took all my pictures for me with my camera - knowing all the spots to get the best pictures including the trick photography. He was also very good at navigating through and around the various pan handlers and photographers in and around each of the sites. I would recommend him to anyone traveling to see Agra and the Taj. The lunch included with the tour was very good. The return trip was uneventful and the driver dropped me off at the Dehli Airport for my trip back to Mumbai. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the Taj Mahal but has only a short time in Dehli - its a long day but very rewarding and memorable.

My guide, Shanoo, was very knowledgeable about the history and sites. He made sure that I was having fun and checked to see if I had any questions. I would love to go back to Taj Mahal and I highly recommend booking this service.
Jugnoo was an excellent guide. He spoke about the history behind each of the locations that we visited. He also provided the necessary tips such that I would not be taken advantage of at each location like how to handle street vendors. I would highly recommend this tour. Furthermore, I would request Jungoo as your guide.
The driver was on time at our hotel and even offered rest stops.
The tour guide Mr. Sanjay was so knowledgeable. He explained the history in a simple and interesting way! All at our own pace.
The restaurant at the Sky Deck restaurant was great! Food was awesome and the view breathtaking!
Went for the optional photographer as well, the photographer was good and took pictures of us while at Taj Mahal and the restaurant. Even natural pictures while you are not aware he is taking them. Provided us with 5 printed out pictures and a USB full of our pictures.
It was all magical :
Overall, worth it!
The tour was amazing! The guide said he was selling dreams and painting pictures! Well let me tell you he really brought the story to life! The only complaint was that he was a little hard to understand at times....he spoke very good english..just had a lisp or something.
Just like the wonder of Taj Mahal amazed all of us, we are also really impressed by such a good trip we booked through Viator. We were picked up punctually at our hotel by the shuttle and it is really comfortable and spacious, we met the tourist guide Akash Anand at the Taj Mahal entrance, a great storyteller who brought us back to the 17th century in presence of the legend of this eternal love. Every single details of this white marble construction just took our breath away. We really enjoyed this tour and undoubtedly it is the best!
Valuable excursion. Lasts about 16 hours and quite long drives. Comfortable small car, driver and guide OK. The rate for this excursion is too expensive. It's easy to organize the same trip from Delhi within an hour through government tourist office at less 40 percent.
it was a great trip, the transportation was comfortable and my guide ''Shub'' was really great, be careful of the fog season cause when we arrived it was very foggy but fortunately it got better afterwards and I was able to enjoy Taj Mahal, well organized trip , I do recommend it, the only thing was the little limited choice at lunch
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!
