The beauty of the Taj Mahal made it worth the 4 hour drive from Delhi.
Both the driver and guide did their best for me to feel comfortable and answer my questions and requests.
Our tour was brilliant, from start to finish..We had a brilliant driver and our guide was exceptional.
We had the most wonderful day finished off with a great meal. Thank you Viator, for making our day one to remember.Excellent.
Thought the tour was great. As a female traveling alone, safety was also a big concern. I was treated very well, very safe with the driver and the guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and knew all the best spots to take pictures. All in all, great experience!
My friends and I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was nice and informative and the ease of being picked up at our hotel in Delhi and driven to Agra to meet our guide, explore the sites, and be driven back at the end of the day was so convenient. We were able to skip the long lines at the Taj Mahal and our guide was great about taking photos for us that others were paying cameramen for. An overall great experience and one that I'd highly recommend.
Our guide was the tour. He made it interesting,fascinating and has given us a great lesson in Indian history. Lunch was first class. Highly recommended.
If you are in Delhi, I highly recommend spending a day to see the Taj Mahal and Agra Red Fort. This all-inclusive package is a great way to do this. We met the driver outside where we were staying and the our guide Pramod met us as we entered Agra. Promod thoroughly described everything we saw and also pointed out the best places to take and frame photographs. Had we gone without a guide or with a different guide we would have missed out.
What an awesome tour! Was supposed to begin at 5am but received an email 2 days before to expect 6am departure due to expected morning Delhi fog. English-speaking driver arrived promptly at 6. Drive Took 3.5 hour with a bathroom/stretch break each way. English-speaking private guide jumped into car in Agra. Took us to Agra Fort, Taj Mahal and mini-Taj. Guide P Sharma was fantastic, getting us tickets to each attraction, VIP access so we didn't have to wait in most lines, included a bottled water as it was 90F, also included lunch at respectable, clean restaurant in Agra. He helped us avoid beggars at entry to Taj Mahal, and he took great pictures with our iPhone so we didn't have to pay for pics from staff photographers. Long day but he made it as easy as possible. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
GReat Trip. The driver and the tour guide were very professional and had the day completely planned. Could not have asked for a better day .. Will definitely use the services again.
It was the perfect day trip from New Delhi! Our driver, Mr Manoj, was on time for a 6am pick-up from our hotel. We had a fast and SAFE drive down to Agra in a very comfortable car. We met our delightful guide, Mr Padam Sharma at the Baby Taj. Mr Sharma's tales of the history of these monuments and the people who built them were mesmerizing. While we had the Baby Taj to ourselves, there were crowds at the Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal. Mr Sharma knew exactly where to place us for the best views and best pictures. He also is quite an accomplished photographer who probably can use your cell phone camera better than you! So he was very willing to take photos, with or without you in them, with your camera for your memories. Mr Manoj returned us to New Delhi in a timely and safe manner during rush hour. Communication with the local tour provider was excellent. GetsHolidays personnel were very responsive and extremely helpful. All in all, a wonderful day trip which we all recommend heartily.
Very informative, friendly guide. Safe driver. Everything went well.
The driver was prompt,very polite and his driving skills were great. Our guide for the trips to the Taj and the Red Fort was also brilliant!
Loved it, Loved it, Loved It!!!
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.
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

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.
Everything is excellent and on time also guide was proffetional
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.

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.
Great experience. Beautiful monument. Perfect guide Hussain. Definitely worth to visit.
Was a wonderful experience. Can't say enough about how smooth it went and how pleased I was with the service. The driver picked me up at the hotel right on time. The ride to Agra was smooth and the highway was nice. The visit to the Taj Mahal was incredible. The tour guide was excellent and the photographer was as well. Got some great pictures from them. Agra Fort and the Baby Taj were also stops along the way. The ride back was nice and smooth, too, and the driver even detoured so I could see the India Gate. Highly recommended.
