Excellent day trip you should not miss
Christopher_H, Jun 2022
The entire experience was well managed from the hotel car pickup, assistance at the rail station and being met by guide in Agra. The guide was very knowledgable and very responsive and helpful with the various stopping points of the experience. The same assistance getting back onto train and car back to hotel went smooth. Great experience by a well managed process by professional staff that knew what they needed to do.
A profoundly excellent experience.
Kristian_H, Jun 2022
This tour was a phenomenal experience. Top to bottom, every detail was flawless. Our tour guide, Mr. Farid, was the most knowledgeable, professional, kind, and all-around excellent guide I have ever had. Our drivers were safe, helpful, and efficient. The business class train was comfortable and fast. The Taj Mahal was breathtaking, and Mr. Farid seemed to know every single detail about the history and construction of the Taj. The restaurant served delicious, authentic food and the service was superb. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Nithin_K, May 2022
I would say really a well planned and well executed trip from viator. The attention to details of the visitors taken care by viator amazed me. The guide Farid is one of the best to take Care of you and your family. The knowledge he has on the Taj Mahal and near by attractions is mindblowing. The viator is really taking care of it’s costumers by interacting with local tours and travels in a well organized way. I highly recommend this trip and Farid is a value add to the entire organization involved. Yes from my side , I highly recommend this trip to all the people who are in dilemma of choosing this.

Great one day trip to Agra
Jose_F, May 2022
It was a great authentic experience. They picked us up promptly and we arrived to the train station with a lot of time to spare. The train was very comfortable and once we arrived to Agra the tour guide was there for us. He took us to all the important places in Agra, obviously Taj Mahal among them. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of India and the monuments and explained everything to us very clearly. For lunch we went to a traditional and fancy place, where we ate some really good Indian food. The return to new Delhi was as smooth as the morning ride. Overall, a must do if you're in new Delhi.

A highlight of my trip to India!!
Adriana_P, Apr 2022
I had an amazing time on this day trip to Agra and could not recommend it enough! I was picked up at 7 am from my hotel, and then dropped off at the train. I was shown my exact train seat, and the guy even took a photo of me to send to my guide so that he could recognize me when I arrived in Agra! Very well organized. As soon as I arrived in Agra, I was greeted by Farid, my tour guide. I'm incredibly grateful that I got him as a guide. He was super knowledgeable and I learned so much from him about the history of Taj Mahal and the other places we visited. He showed me so many details I wouldn't have noticed otherwise. My favorite part was learning the full story of the Taj Mahal, and why certain things were built the way they were. In the middle of the tour, Farid took me to an amazing restaurant for lunch where I had delicious Indian food. Overall it was a great experience that I definitely recommend to anyone staying in Delhi!
Most excellent trip ever!
Ashley_L, Apr 2022
The whole experience was amazingly well organized with the polite and thorough exchange of information. The driver collected us from our hotel and took is right onto the train to our seats! We sat in an air-conditioned 1st class carriage to Agra. During the train ride there and back we were served food and drinks! We were greated by our tour guide "Sunny" - what an awesome guy! Brilliantly informative and beautifully well spoken and knowledgeable. We went strait to the Taj - amazing - we had a great lunch at a near-by restaurant - then off to the Red Fort. Sunny was great, he took us through a daylong history lesson on the Indian dynasties! Super informative. This tour was the highlight of our visit to India and I would strongly recommend Sunny and Viator to anyone planning a trip to India....you will never get this next level experience without them
Five stars tour and service!
Mirela_B, Apr 2022
I highly recommend this tour. Everything was right on point. I received the confirmation and details the day before, including schedule and driver information. At 7 am, the first driver was waiting for me at my hotel lobby in Delhi to take me to the station. The train ride was comfortable, quick and they even served breakfast. As soon as I stepped out of the train at Agra station, my tour guide (Sunny) was there to greet me. He’s super friendly, knowledgeable and enjoys telling the history of the monuments. He’s also a great photographer lol!! Ali, the driver was also very friendly, reliable and respectful and every time we returned to the car, he had a new bottle of cold water ready for me! Lunch at a local restaurant was an authentic Indian feast and the food was delicious. I have nothing but great things to say about this tour and the royal treatment I received throughout the day. Money very well spent ☺️
The most amazing day!
Alan_d, Apr 2022
Absolutely amazing!!! So organized, we felt completely calm and relaxed. Our tour guide Sunny shared all the interesting facts and stories with us and was with us every step of the way. He went the extra mile by even helping us find new accommodation! We felt it was worth every penny. The only way to have the true experience is through this tour! Highly recommend

Thank you for a most fascinating and wonderful day, one that I will never forget. The tour was very easy and punctual. The Taj Mahal and Agra were both amazing.

He made the day all the more memorable. I highly recommend this trip!!

Excellent tour!
Alimran_G, Apr 2022
We booked the "Delhi to Agra and Taj Mahal Private Day Trip by Express Train with Lunch" - Experience from start to end was great with a pick up from hotel and staff to receive us. The cars were great, clean and good AC. Out tour guide "Ali" was amazing! His wealth of knowledge was immense and he explained many aspects of the the Taj Mahal + other monuments we visited. When visiting the Taj Mahal take an umbrella as this is key to the harsh sun! Highly recommend this tour and do ask for "Ali" the guide - you would be lucky to have him!
