The tour was well organised and the archeologist was very accommodating in our requests and well informed. The driver was also fantastic and we all felt very safe with him, in a clean and hygienic bus. The only thing was the packed lunch, which was probably inadequate in hot weather and we really could not eat the sandwiches upon return to the bus in the hot weather. I suggest that they give out the lunches later or advise us to take it with us to eat during the tour itself. Not enough time to look at the stalls for souveniers.
A tour to the Taj is an experience everyone should have. The driver Vikram was extremely trustworthy and an excellent driver negotiating the potholes and horrendous traffic in India. I felt extremely safe, even as a solo female traveler. The only downside was that I was not too impressed by the 'souvenior' shops I was taken to, with the sales people there being too pushy and inquisitive. If you don't like shopping, make sure you insist that they don't take you to those places.
