Halil our tour guide in Agra was absolutely incredible. No only was he knowledgeable about the sites, he was also a world class photographer at no additional charge. I highly recommend that you ask for Halil on your upcoming trip to Agra/

One of the best things I've ever experienced

Agra Taj Mahal and Agra Fort Private Day Trip by Rail from Delhi | Mar 2020
An exceptional time and amazing tour guide. Very informative, no waiting, delicious lunch and even the express train was better than we were expecting. The tour team pulled out all of the stops to get us back to the train when they decided to close all of the main roads as a practice before Trump's arrival the next day. Brilliant experience

Agra Taj Mahal and Agra Fort Private Day Trip by Rail from Delhi | Dec 2019
As always with Viator, our day trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal went flawlessly! We were picked up at our hotel by a driver who told us so many interesting facts about Delhi, then escorted through the bustling train station in Delhi and shown right to our seats on the train. We splurged for 1st class tickets and thought it was worth it. We got a meal and bottled water both ways and had a great view of the countryside from our comfy seats in the 1st class coach. I thought this was a group tour but it turned out to be a private tour for just my husband and I. Our guide met us at the train in Agra and took us to the car that we had use of all day. Our guide was Saurabh Gupta and he was amazing! He was very knowledgeable, well-spoken, friendly and polite. He spent the entire day with us explaining all the details about the Taj Mahal and Fort Agra, the history, the culture, the political and religious influences. It was fascinating and so informative. It's popular to hire a photographer on the Taj grounds to take your picture, which we did. We paid $35 USD for 40 pictures, but many of them were silly poses that we didn't need. As it turned out, our guide Saurabh offered to take pictures on my phone and he was a better photographer than the guy we hired. I would recommend asking for Saurabh as your guide and giving him the money you would pay a photographer. The lunch that was included at the BBQ restaurant was delicious and the atmosphere was cool and relaxing. Afterwards we went to tour Fort Agra, which also a must-see and is fascinating and impressive. The only downside of the tour was the stop at the artisan shops. It was interesting to see the artisans at work, but they really pressured us to buy something. Beware, the marble shop was ridiculously overpriced! I bought a set of coasters for $55 USD and saw the same ones in the airport gift shop for $20! The rug shop on the lower level had really beautiful handmade rugs at reasonable prices, so if you buy anything, I would suggest doing it there. At the end of the day, we were put back on the train and then taken back to our hotel. It was an awesome, memorable experience, one that I know we wouldn't have been comfortable doing on our own. So thank you Viator for helping us make a dream trip come true! I would highly recommend it! (Be generous and tip your guide and drivers... these folks work hard and do a great job!)

Agra Taj Mahal and Agra Fort Private Day Trip by Rail from Delhi | Nov 2019
My guide, Hilal, was an excellent guide. Full of information about the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort - both in terms of the architecture and history. Logistically, this company was very smooth. Pick-ups and drop-offs went without a hitch - Sunil was my Delhi liaison and driver. Be prepared for the trains to run late. This is India after all! Bring a book and prepare to sit on the platform well after the scheduled departure time. Know that part of the tour is taking you to shops. Remember that they’re not really there to give you a “direct from manufacturer” deal - haggle! Very similar goods are available at souvenir shops in the city for much less!

Day trip to agra by rail

Agra Taj Mahal and Agra Fort Private Day Trip by Rail from Delhi | Jul 2019
We decided to visit agra by rail (train) instead of car, booked a single day tour on viator and our local tour operator was Taj destinations. Everything was smooth and without hitch, had clean cars on-time to take us to train station in Delhi, private car and tour guide in agra. Excellent lunch, and food in train. Train was on time and ac-car was very comfortable. We could beat traffic as we were at Taj Mahal by 10 am. We even managed to see baby taj. Only bad thing was agra was very hot and humid. Go end of year. Or take a hat, umbrella and dress right. Our car had cold water bottles well stocked, so that helped lot. Other thing is train stations have not changed much, so if you are a foreigner, don't expect a modern station.

Round Trip Airport Transfer- From Delhi Airport to Hotel & Back to Delhi Airport | Jul 2019
We had booked this pick up and arrived in New Delhi but nobody could be found to pick us up. Our provider contacted us and arranged for the return journey. They also explained that they would refund the first leg. All goo. that we have returned to Australia, no contact, no response and NO REFUND. Maybe Taj Destination Tours will read this and will see fit to organise our refund.

Agra Taj Mahal and Agra Fort Private Day Trip by Rail from Delhi | Jun 2019
It was an excellent Tour , coming to India and not visiting the Taj Mahal is not knowing India. The most important thing is that the route was very pleasant, I had excellent coordination on the route with 2 very friendly drivers, good seats on the train tickets, the guide very well with the explanations, the truth is an excellent day.

Day trip to Agra via express rail

Agra Taj Mahal and Agra Fort Private Day Trip by Rail from Delhi | Nov 2018
This was a really good day trip from Delhi. Everything was really well organised, from being picked up at both ends to and from the train, being shown to our seats, and the tour of the Taj and Agra Fort. Our tour guide had much knowledge and was clear most of the time - whenever we could not quite understand something he was always ready to repeat what he said, and if necessary, to explain in more detail. We opted for the trip without lunch included - would suggest this as we just wanted a small lunch, ended up going to Costa coffee - that was enough food as breakfast was large.

It was very nice trip with kind guide and on time pick up taxi. Staffs are good at Japanese and English so I recommend this tour for Japanese tourists too. Their response was also good so that I can ask some question about tour.

Agra Taj Mahal and Agra Fort Private Day Trip by Rail from Delhi | Oct 2018

My Girlfriends and I traveled throughout India and I arranged this tour for our short trip to Delhi. I have been to the Taj Mahal several times and knew that I wanted a very organized tour especially since our time was limited. This company delivered as promised. As explained, we were promptly picked up at the hotel. Taken by car to the express train. The guide showed us to our seats. He then returned when we arrived in Agra. He handed us over to another guide and car who shuttled us straight to the Taj Mahal. We did not have to wait in the long line for tickets - they were LONG! The guide was very knowledgeable about the history and spoke great English. We also had the same experience visiting Agra Fort - no line, easy entry and knowledgeable guide. The guide took us to 2 shops and a great restaurant for lunch. We then were driven back to the train station where the first guide met us, placed us on the train and they promptly took us back to our hotel upon arrival in Delhi. No problem with the train we arrived back in the evening and our flight was at 3am the next day! I am not knocking down my rating for the store stops as I expected this. But you should know that you will get the hard sell at the gem store and at the marble store. The stores carry beautiful things and there is no obligation to purchase though it can be hard to say no!, but just know you are not really being taken to these stores to watch the craftsman. Overall - it was a great experience for all of us and this company runs a tight ship delivering excellent service and wonderful staff.

Golden Triangle 2-Day Tour by Train from Delhi | Aug 2018

This tour was fantastic. From the moment I booked the tour group was in instant contact with me to confirm booking. We then tweaked the tour a bit by staying in Jaipur for one extra night and not returning to Delhi which was organised with no hassle. The tour guides for Agra and Jaipur were great and the hotel was lovely.

Full Day Jaipur (Pink City) Tour from Delhi by Express Train | May 2018

Jaipur or Pink City - is a must when in the area. Fantastic Amer Fort has to be experienced and is really worth the trip alone - but also the sights downtown Jaipur and the Castle in the Sea are special and very nice. My whole trip went smooth and according to schedule - very early pick up at the Delhi hotel, parked in a train seat and picked up outside the Jaipur train station by guide Charlie and driver Harish. Both very skilled, friendly, service minded and who very much met my expectations of the day. A special thanks to Harish who fulfilled my special wish at the end of the day.
I highly recommend this trip to Jaipur from Dehli.
