We were a group of 4 germans. I was very surprised regarding to the perfect organization and communication to Aviator. Driver and guide were punctually and also perfect organized and very experienced. The 3star hotel on the trip was new, clean and good. I can recommend thist trip to erverybody and exspecially to visitors from Europe or USA.
This was an amazing tour! We were meet at the airport even after a 3 hour delay, then escorted to our driver. we drove the Agra with a very nice driver who even stopped for us to take pictures of things along the way. we were meet at the hotel in Agra by another representative to ensure we got checked in ok. then we were off on a day full of tours with a very nice and knowledgeable tour guide. We had our meals taken care of and the hotel was really nice! The next day we enjoyed another tour before returning back to Delhi. I am currently on another tour in India with a different company and it is not going good at all. I think that Viator really knows how to find good local tour services. I would 100% recomend this tour to others.
- Wonderful sights & enough time for floating around and taking photos - Very nice guide, good historical knowledge about sights, - Very good to understand
Great driver and good information en route. Hotel and food excellent.
Tour met expectations for the most part and is worth doing - with some caveats and room for improvement - we were picked up at Marriott Aerocity Delhi, driven to Agra, and saw TaJ Mahal and Agra Fort that afternoon, Fatehpur Sikri the next morning. A couple issues (minor) - driver was late for pickup; local tour concessionaire in Agra was ill-informed (he did not "know" we were completely prepaid and asked how we would pay for the hotel and the admission fees to each place); the Radisson in Agra was not up to the "5-star" rating they self proclaimed (food there was marginal at best). But perhaps worst was the "obligatory" stop at the "Marble Factory" in Agra for a "demonstration" of the local marble handicraft, and then excess pressure to buy some marble at prices that were exhorbitant even after negotiations . That side-trip should be completely optional and when told No Thank You the tour shouldn't stop there. The car ride to and from Agra is very very long, and the return through Delhi traffic can seem interminable - but it beats fighting the crowds on the trains and was perfectly safe.
Thanks for arranging the two day Agra tour. Everything went quite smoothly, though I did not expect such a long journey to and from Delhi. The driver however was always prompt or early and pleasant, treating me with great courtesy and very concerned for my comfort. He was friendly and despite limited English, he communicated very well. The guide was OK, but seemed to be a little low energy and repeating a script, rather than leading a tour. He asked questions, but did not really listen to the answer. He did a nice job at the Agra Fort, explainng the history of this site. I really, really appreciated his assistance at the Taj Mahal, where we arrived around 4:30 pm and he whisked me past the hawkers and long lines and into all the important places at the site then he left me on my own for 30 minutes just as the sun was bathing the monument in sunset colors to just take it all in.We then went to the obligatory Marble factory visit. The next day's visit to Fatehpur Sikri was pretty cursory. Overall found him not good at relating to the customer. The three star hotel was OK and the meals also were just average.
The tour guide in Agra primary interest was in getting me to purchase high-end products from the vendors she chose. Our visit to the Taj was very brief due to the way she scheduled the day. She was very insistent that I purchase more photos than I had agreed to and expected me to select my choose of photos in the dark.
Overall the tour went very well. Lodging was very comfortable and restaurants selected at the Hotels in Agra were very nice and food was good. Tour guide for Fort Agra and Taj Mahal was exceptional. I was Very displeased with tour of Fatehpur city. Tour guide was rude and made me feel very uncomfortable with his anti-American attitude. Felt we were rushed through the tour with little explaination. Then taken to his "family's" store to purchase their items and we we didnt want to spend an additional $100 US on souvineers he stood up, ripped the curtain open and stomped out of the room saying nothiing to us. I would highly not recommend to anyone to visit this city.
