Fue una experiencia única. todo muy bien organizado, nuestro chofer fue una persona muy amable, en la ruta a Agra nos fue explicando los puntos mas importantes, estuvo siempre muy pendiente de nosotros. Nos dio un par de recuerdos, nunca había recibido de ningún tour un recuerdo como ese. A pesar de ser un viaje largo, fue muy confortable el vehículo, no estuvo nada cansado. Nuestro guía, Manolo, muy profesional y conocedor de la historia. Fue muy bueno que hable español, así pudimos entender muy bien la historia. Muy buen fotógrafo, conocía los puntos precisos para tomar fotos fantásticas. La vista desde el hotel donde tuvimos nuestro almuerzo fue increíble. La comida se veía muy buena, no me gusta la comida picante, no puedo pedir mas si estoy en la India, es lo que hay. Un tour muy recomendado.
Awesome Visit to Agra! The Taj Mahal was breathtaking, and the Agra Fort tour was very interesting and gave us a very good look into the life of the Mughal emporer and his family. Our tour guide Girdhar Singh was excellent as well! His willingness to share historical facts and stories as we drove to Agra made the visit to the sites much more interesting and personal. Very quickly into the tour, we were joking and sharing stories with him more like a friend than a guide. We stopped for lunch at the 5Gateway Hotel, and enjoyed a delicious and authentic Indian lunch and were very impressed with the great view of the Taj Mahal from the observation deck at the top of their hotel. Very professional tour. We always felt like our needs/requests were taken care of and we would recommend to anyone interested in traveling to India.
The Taj in itself is reason enough to visit India. Tour, guide, food, and transportation were very good. Nonetheless be prepared to spend 5 hours on the car going from/to Delhi-Agra. For those with limited time in Delhi, this is a great option.
My driver was superb! I really enjoyed his knowledge of the India as well travelled to Agra. The tour guide was knowledgeable but a bit loud for my personal taste. He seemingly wanted everyone to know his wealth of knowledge as many people were listening too. This was a private tour, but his presentation was if he was talking to a small group of 15-20 people. My photographer did an excellent job taking the photos. He was able to get good shots without other tourists not in the way. Not only did I receive actual photos that day, I even received a flash drive with additional shots from my visit. Additionally, I chose the option for tea which was a great finale to my tour. I highly recommend this tour!
This is a fabulous trip to see one of the seven wonders of the world. Sanjay was our guide around the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, he was very passionate about the buildings and his enthusiasm was great to see. We visited Agra on a 44C day which is not the best conditions however Sanjay never faulted and he was very knowledgeable about what he was showing us. The photographer didn't offer us a choice of prints and they were over exposed plus there was a couple of spots on the camera lens that were then on every print. I fixed up the problem with the software on my lap top so it wasn't a big problem for me. The photographer took shots around the Taj Mahal only, he positioned us in the right spot to get some good pictures. Sanjay was keen too keen to get us into the outlet selling gems, I guess that there is some commission paid to the guide from these retailers. We did purchase a piece of marble inlaid with semi precious stones as a memento of our trip. The lunch at the local hotel was pretty good, however the hotel is not adjacent to the Taj Mahal it is in fact a few kms away and so the views are not brilliant. Because it was hot when we were there we were happy to not eat lunch on the roof top of the hotel, instead we had lunch in a top floor room of the hotel. We had the Indian cuisine, there was plenty of it, well presented and very tasty. The pictures in my post have been fixed by me but should give you some idea of how the photographer will position you. Our driver for the day was Pankaj, great driver on the roads of India.
I was very pleased with the tour of the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort although it took over 3 hours to get there Delhi Traffic is the worst I have experiencedthe journey was comfortable and enjoyable.
The whole experience was worth while as we were taken on a journey of discovery of the Taj Mahal and Red Fort which left us with a true sense of the history surrounding both historical sites.
Although the hotel and the roof top restaurant was very pleasant I though the food was poor as we were not given a real choice at the time but served with a mixture of Indian dishes which at best was only just acceptable.
However I will like to add that Viator did send through 3 different menus to choose from but when we got there that choice seemed to have disappeared.
Although the food dampened the experience a little overall we thought the whole day was a fantastic experience and would not hesitate to recommend this tour to friends and family alike.
The service and attention to detail was second to none:
Great tour, clean schuttle, very attentive pilot and copilot, the guide was a nice man with a lot of information and easy access.
complain: the description says 5 course meal in roof top restaurant and we had an almost empty bufet in the ugly hotel restaurant... then invited to see the taj majal from roof top where some other people where having lunch... that was a lie.
