One of the best tours we had so far. Our guide, Mr. Mehran Uddin, was very knowledgable and attentive to our needs.
Enter your review here.What an exciting drive from Delhi to Agra and Jaipur. We had an excellent driver his name is Prahlad Prasad. it's hair raising to be on the the road in India,but Prahlad Handle it with ease and confidence. Our local guides in Agra and Jaipur were excellent. Mehran Uddin in Agra was so well informed and very accommodating. Our guide in Jaipur was also excellent. I Would definitively recommend taking this tour in the comfort of your own car,driver and tour guides. The only way to go in India John C and Clorinda
Wonderful trip, really wonder of the world. The trip was OK, however seeing all three places was not possible because not enough time. Local guide was excellent. As the road was not good at some parts, car's suspension should be made better. Contact number given was no longer in use and should be renewed as appear in the voucher. Luckily the guy with number given was so nice to help contacting Intrepid tour manager, even it was saturday.
It is a nice tour with a very good reception of the travel representative in every city you go. Good car and good hotels. The only problem is that the driver is always sleepy and we have to talk to him all the time, otherwise he could sleep driving. It is a very long trip by car and the medium velocity on the road is 50km/h, you really have to be patient.
The tour guide to Agra was OK. He was on time, he was nice, and he was willing to share information. The local tour guide at the Taj Mahal was exceptional. He was easy to understand, extremely knowledgeable, and shared a great deal of information. We were a little disappointed that the the tour did not include Fatehpur Sikri. We paid extra for this side trip but there wasn't enough time in the day to include it. That was a little misleading in the tour information. We should have only been charged for the Taj Mahal and Red Fort trip or not have spent time at the marble and carpet stores unless asked.
Great Tour. Arrangement with Viator and support excellent. Private tour for 2 business guess became a tour with 2 other business peole in a larger car. Finally was great teaming with other.
The trip is wonderful, but way too long. We had terrible traffic jams. Please consider the train to Agra to meet your guide. Our trip was 14 hours/12 in the car.
A very good tour with a personal driver who met us as we arrived off our flight at DEL.He even lent us money to tip the baggage porters until we could get to an ATM. Apart from getting temporarily lost on outskirts of Delhi we couldn't fault him ! Then drove to Agra where he showed us best places for the photos. In Jaipur we were provided with local guide. Hotels were good quality and staff were very welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend this tour.
Even though it was 46 degrees celsius, getting out to Agra to see and learn about the history of the Taj Mahal was definitely worth it. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Other than the weather, the day was enjoyable.
Taj Mahal is worth seeing and this goal was achieved by the trip. We (2 people) went on a private tour assisted by the guide and the driver in a small, uncomfortable Tata car. The guide was friendly and answered all our questions. However, at the beginning of the tour, before leaving Delhi, he told us, that he and the driver are hungry and need breakfast. They stopped to eat, while we waited by the car. On the way back they stopped several times to either eat or to drink tea, while we waited. The program of the tour did not include such stops, but the guide explained, that food is very important for people in India. We found this annoying, especially on a private tour, where we expected a service tailored to our needs.
Although getting to see the Taj Mahal was absolutely amazing, the drive itself and the tour guide could have been better. The driver got into an accident on the way to Agra, and had me step outside the car (onto a VERY busy road) while 12 people ran out from the side of the road to "lift" the car off of the truck that it was stuck on. This delayed our arrival to Agra, upon which the driver told the tour guide that he hoped the "accident" was not going to affect his trip! Although the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort, I did not appreciate being taken to shops that he would he would get commissions from. I was taken into basements of buildings with doors closed behind me - and felt very uncomfortable. Even after I expressed my displeasure at being taken to the first stop, I was taken to another shop with a similar method of "shopping". If you say you don't want to purchase something, you are taken into a room of "cheaper" stuff that they hope you will purchase. I felt compelled to purchase something just so they would let me out of the store - which made me completely uncomfortable. The drive was long, but the sights were amazing. Recommend this type of travel for a single woman traveling alone.
Higlhy recommended. Although was dissapointed that the driver was not happy with my tipping amount. Felt so bad at the end i gave him just a little more.
Car was small and without no security belts on rear seats. Travel is long and hard to do. Nevertheless Driver and Guide were nice and very good. It would be fine not to take us to local stores to by handicraft where we could find everywhere in India for 1/3 of the price (where they should have a large commission of every tourist sale).
Decent tour, not the best I've ever been on, but I appreciated the safety of hiring a car for the tour.
The journey started almosr an hour late because the the driver had some late night trip. It takes 4 hour travel to Agra. Due to inproper planning we have to skip Fatehpur sikri trio. Our understanding is that it require one and half hour journey from Agra and Agra to Delhi another 5 and half hour jorney.
