Travel by fast train round-trip from Delhi to Agra to pack in more sightseeing and spend less time on the road. The Gatimaan Express train gets you to Agra in a little less than two hours, and your local guide and private driver meet you upon arrival. Visit the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Itmad-Ud-Daulah (Baby Taj), and Mehtab Bagh, before returning to Delhi in the evening.
Incredible experience the Taj Mahal is probably the only place I have been to where the monument doesn't just live up to the hype but exceeds it, it truly is a special place. The tour was excellently run and they take care of everything fro you from start to Finish, shuttle-car service from hotel to station and then station to the Taj, your guide even meets you on the platform. My guide Islam was excellent and very knowledgeable and good fun to spend the day with. I would definitely recommend this company/tour and if I ever return I would definitely use them again
The Taj Mahal and Agra Fort were amazing. Everyone must experience this in their lifetime. But equally amazing was the professionalism of the Pioneer Holidays staff and particularly our guide, Islam
Islam was not only very knowledgeable of the history and archeology, but he was extremely pleasant, acommodating and a total pleasure. He made our visit special.
The Pioneer Holidays staff was very attentive to every detail of our visit, and the manager personally met us to ensure we were satisfied with the tour.
If we could, we would rate this experience a 10 out of 5. We would recommend you choose this particular tour provider. You will enjoy every moment of this journey with them.
Simply, the best.

Pioneer Holidays Delhi is the owner of the tour & the driver Vijay picked me up @ the hotel right on cue. He' s friendly and quite funny too. We drove to Delhi main train station & put me safely on the train.Be mindful that trains in India are not exactly Western Europe's standard. And Delhi is heaving with the mass.Upon arrival my tour guide Kashif Khan has already waited for me on the platform and off we went to the magical Taj. I think it was the highlight of this trip. Lunch @ the Marriott was nice but drinks not included. In the afternoon we covered the rest of the sites as listed in the itinerary in spite of the crawling space through Agra's traffic. Kashif is wonderful and funny as well & at the end of the day he put me back safely on the train to Delhi where Vijay was already waiting for me on the platform & then drove me back to my hotel.Be warned : Do not under any circumstances buy anything from the marble work shops nor the jewellery store in Agra. Just went along with the charade, but decline firmly & politely. Don't be afraid in being assertive.
Everything with pioneer holidays went smooth and quick. I booked the tour to visit Taj Mahal for the first time and was happy to come across them, the company responded on time and I got my tickets for the train. Once in Agra the service quality was amazing, the guide welcomed us at the station with flowers necklace and gave us a memorable tour of Agra city. The best point was when we were at the roof of a hotel and got a chance to drink some beers and also see the taj at my background. I would surely recommend vicky by guide and chand my driver for the life time experience.
We had a great experience with Pioneer Holiday, booked through Viator. They were very professional and followed up regularly. At the last minute my daughter fell ill and we had to cancel our 1 day trip to Agra from Delhi by superfast train, which was to include the Taj Mahal. They gladly arranged another tour around Delhi for me to do alone, at no extra charge. Their courteous and helpful customer service, their flexibility and understanding of our situation, and their willingness to change my arrangement, all lead me to say I would certainly recommend them!
