As soon as I booked this trip I received a whatsapp message from the local company to verify time of pick up from my lodgings. When I got to India, I was also given the number of my driver to confirm pick up and any other details I wished to discuss. My driver, Jumman Kahn, was punctual and responsive. He picked me up at 6:30 and drove me to Agra. In Agra we meat up with the local, very informative, guide, Hilal, who gave me a detailed history of the Taj Mahal and Agra fort. In addition, my driver Jumman, went beyond the call of duty when I decided I wanted to buy something I saw while on the tour, and he got it for me the next day while on another tour. He then brought it to me at my lodging. I highly recommend this tour the service was excellent.
I had a spare day in Delhi and booked through Viator a Taj Destination Tour to Agra taking in the Taj Mahal and The Red Fort. I had a great day. Diver Namal arrived at the Hotel in a very comfortable car with a boot full of water bottles for the 3 1/2 hour Drive to Agra complete with rest break along the way.
Once in Agra we were joined by Hilal a most knowledgeable guide complete with facts and figures about the Taj the Mughal Emperors and the best place to get those picture postcard shots.
After a wonderful time at the Taj it was onto the Red fort and a wealth of stories about the families that lived within the palace and yet again great places to take those memorable shots.
A relaxing lunch at the ITC hotel set me up for the return journey to my hotel in Delhi. Lunch was at 2 which was a long time from breakfast but I had taken the precaution of bringing some snacks and I was also given the choice to have lunch before or after the Red Fort.
The return journey was again relaxed with a rest stop on the way.
All in all an excellent day and a great trip, the personal touch by both driver and guide made this a very relaxed way to view this wonder of the world, and I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
