Well worth putting in the long day to visit this incredible building. Plenty of time to see both the Taj and Fort.

How Could It Be Anything but Magical

Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Jan 2020
Early start but easy to nap in car ride. Prem was excellent driver and stopped at a truck stop (interesting experience) for me to have coffee and use the facilities. Sun wasn’t making an appearance but the early morning mist created a dreamy atmosphere. Guide Rocky was very knowledgeable about mogul history and answered my many questions. The Taj is worth every penny and every missed minute of sleep. Breakfast afterwards was at a lovely hotel where I was given an hour to eat and absorb the morning alone - perfect. Then on to the fort and to the baby Taj (which I paid for). There were too many stops with sales people pressing for business and not enough stops to see the beauty and uniqueness of Agra. But Rocky was an excellent host. Easy to understand and talk to. And Prem was the perfect driver.

Great Tour

Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Jan 2020
We really enjoyed our tour. Our driver and tour guide were great - very friendly and knowledgeable. The Taj Mahal and Agra Fort are incredible. The breakfast was delicious. We were disappointed with the shopping as it was very specific shops only when we thought it was going to be more of a market, but it wasn't enough to detract from everything else.

They sell you on goods more than the culture and history.

Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Dec 2019
The Agra tour by Trip Advisor was overall a huge disappointment. Our guide Tony made our experience feel unsafe, shallow, and aimed at making you spend money at every turn. Breakfast I asked if we could eat breakfast at a well-reviewed south Indian restaurant, and our guide avoided the question and acted like we had to eat at the Trident Hotel (a place that is part of a more expensive trip advisor package). Our guide said the south Indian restaurant was disgusting, and we shouldn’t go. I then asked what his favorite local restaurant was, as he was from Agra, and he said Trident Hotel was the best. This was our first red flag. Shop Scams Before visiting Agra, I reached out to trip advisor about the itinerary, and explained that we were not interested in shopping. I read several reviews saying that other people were taken to shops by their tour guide so if they bought something the guide would get a portion of the money. I received feedback from trip advisor saying we didn’t have to go shopping, and we could in fact go anywhere in Agra, even if it wasn’t on the tour, we would just have to pay the entrance fees. Conclusion During the entirety of our tour at the Taj our guide Tony talked about the stonework and the inlaid gemstones at the Taj. He took us to a shop afterwards that specializes in this kind of gem and stonework. While the craftsmanship at the shop was high quality they have a display area out front with workers displaying how they supposedly make everything by hand. It felt like a tourist display and the prices for the goods were very high. After the marble shop we went to Agra Fort, which was the least appealing of the forts we visited in India and he talked endlessly about tapestries they would hang that are of course no longer present. After telling us a little about the fort and a focus on the tapestries he then insisted we go to a tapestry shop to see their wares. We told him we were not interested and did not want to buy a tapestry but he insisted. Only after telling him a second time we did not want to go to a shop and instead wanted to visit the gardens across from the Taj did he concede and the mood of the tour changed entirely. He became distant and reluctant to respond to our questions and you could hear a level of scorn in his voice for us not wanting to do things as he had planned. This not only made us uncomfortable riding with him but also having all of our belongings in a car with him as we walked the gardens on our own.

Nicely organized tour to one of the modern wonders of the world

Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Dec 2019
Overall a nice trip, with punctual and professional driver. Well organized from a timing standpoint. Friendly and helpful guide, good breakfast, and enough time to explore Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The only negative was the "forced stop" at the handicrafts store(s). Since we were time-pressed to return to Dehli by a certain time we only visited one of the stores (the marble inlay one). The demonstration was nicely done, but the visit to the gallery/store was not as "no pressure at all" as was mentioned several times by the person who welcomed us. While the craftsmanship of the items was good, the prices were very high and you should be able to haggle down to about one-third to half of the original asking price. In the end I decided against buying what I liked, because I didn't like the sales tactics, being surrounded by 4 or 5 people trying to have me buy a $100 coaster set, which started with a much higher asking price. I worked in tourism and even as a tour guide for years so I understand the shop visits and reliance on commission for extra income, but in the end these visits should not distract from the tour, and partially spoil the experience of visiting one of the must-see places on earth.

Great Tour - Rocky is a Champ!

Private 2-Day Tour to The Taj Mahal and Agra from Delhi by Car | Dec 2019
Really enjoyed my 2 day tour of Agra. In between business commitments elsewhere, the 2 day pace was perfect for managing around the volume of visitors in Agra and keeping a pace that allowed me to enjoy the sights. Saw Agra Fort, Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulah ("baby Taj"), Mehtab Bagh perfect for sundown across river from Taj, and then Taj Mahal itself at sunrise. Tour guide Rocky was informative, flexible, and very skilled with an iPhone!

Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Nov 2019
Very good experience and enjoyed it very much. the guide Rocky kept pointing out certain details in the architecture of the Taj and could tell a lot about the history. He did that in a funny way making the experience more memorable. Definitely something one would not want to miss when visiting India. The driver picked us up in time and brought us save and sound back to the hotel which was very much appreciated given the traffic in India

Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Nov 2019
It was a memorable experience! Everything that we wanted and so much more. Professionally organised and executed. Our driver was so caring and reminded us of our pick up venue way in advance and our guide (Rocky) was the highlight. He walked us through the historical timeline of the Moghul Empire and culminating in the reasons for building the "Taj Mahal". Our guide Rocky is amazing in taking excellent photographs. We brought back wonderful pleasant memories. Thank you Viator!

We could have skipped the shopping tours.. It was actually fun and a good learning how they trying to sell products.. It was insightful, but waking up early, and a having a full day tour maybe they should incorporate a massage for free and then sell whatever they want to sell:)

Taj Mahal to ourselves

Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Nov 2019
Prior to our trip our driver sent his picture and reconfirmed our 2:15 am hotel pick up in Delhi. He was on time and drove us the 3 hours to meet our day guide at the Taj Mahal. Early is the key as we were first in line to enter the gate and quickly made our way to the best photos with virtually no one else in them. Our guide was a photo expert and historian and moved us around with great ease capturing each essential, once in a lifetime photos. Breakfast at a local hotel was very good and a much needed break before heading to Agra which was a bit disappointing. We passed on the ceramics shop as we preferred an earlier return to Delhi. Thank you Viator for vetting your supplies and providing an outstanding day trip

Company pressures positive reviews and pushy salesman

star-1Traveler1234india
2-Day Tour to Taj Mahal and Agra from Bangalore with Commercial Return Flights | Oct 2019
Don’t trust the positive reviews. We were asked constantly the entire second day of our trip to leave a positive review and the driver was checking trip advisor while driving. I ended up leaving a 5-star review on trip advisor because it was to the point where I felt unsafe. All of the info given as part of the tour is related to the 3 overpriced stores they force you to go into where pushy salesman won’t leave you . I know this is common with Indian tour companies but the whole trip felt like a scam to get you to buy things when all I wanted was the experience I already paid for. I do feel bad for the tour guide and driver because it’s clear they don’t get paid by the scummy company unless they receive positive reviews, but next time I go back to Agra (and I do happen to be going back in a few weeks) I will just hire a driver from a reputable company and plan the site seeing myself. The positives were having all the details of the trip planned for you and the actual site seeing was great, but I’m leaving a 1 star review to balance out the 5-star review I was coerced into leaving on trip advisor.

Guide had excellent knowledge of area and conveyed a lot of interesting facts and figures about the Taj Mahal and Agra in good English. the breakfast was most enjoyable. a pleasant location. personally, i didnt need to go outlets that wanted to sell their products. the drive to and from Delhi was long but the driver excellent and i enjoyed the trip. the driver was very patient in the afternoon traffic when getting my safely back to my hotel. Not sure who the person was who drove with us from Delhi to Agra?? He didnt have a lot of English that i could understand and slept most of the way... a nice (long) day out :)

Private Day Trip to Ranthambhore Tiger Safari Reserve from Jaipur | Oct 2019
Logistics worked well, though communication could have been marginally improved. I was in a rush, so could only do one safari and no tigers. I’d recommend allocating more time to Ensure you can hopefully see them. Agent works with a local hotel who hosts you for lunch and where I sat by the pool for an hour in advance of departing for safari. Not glamorous but did the job.

A great and long day to experience the Taj Mahal and Agra fort

star-4860jeroen
Private Taj Mahal at Sunrise and Agra Day Tour from Delhi | Oct 2019
My trip was scheduled to start at 2:15 from my hotel near Delhi airport. A day before the trip I received the information by WhatsApp from the tour operator. Ravi, my driver arrived at 2:00 already. Also he kept me posted by WhatsApp. The car was comfortable and clean. The drive from Delhi to Agra took about 3,5 hours and was comfortable so I could sleep a bit. After arriving in Agra I met up with Rajesh, my guide for the day. In the Taj Mahal I had a few particular photos in mind that I wanted to take. Beyond that Rajesh was able to show me a few great photo angles that I probably wouldn't have found that quickly myself. The 3 hours at the Taj Mahal literally flew by :-) In the afternoon we went to Agra Fort where I learned about the history and particularities of the fort. Again Rajesh was very knowledgable and pleasant to hang around with. The day way concluded with a sunset view of the Taj Mahal from Mehtab Bagh, after which Ravi - who had rested during the day in Agra - brought me back to Delhi in the evening. I look back at this trip with great pleasure. I rated this trip 4 star instead of 5 star for following reason: in the afternoon there was some free time between lunch and before heading to Mehtab Bagh and we decided to visit some artisanal stores. I was interested to review and purchase some small jewellery/art items. I did mention I was not interested in visiting any rug stores, but we did end up at one that was rather pushy to sell me some. I had to raise my voice in a persistent manner to stop that. This could have been easily avoided as I expressed up from that I had no desire to purchase any rugs.
