We had the best driver from Delhi to Agra managing that crazy traffic. He was at our hotel about ten minutes early. Our driver was Prahalad. Our tour guide in Agra was fantastic as well- the creator of Beautiful World. Our driver even set up a day of sightseeing in Dehli for the following day. Do it
