I had a really great experience during my Taj Mahal and Agra Tour. Both the guide and the driver were really responsible and attentive. Finally, for those who want to shopping, the guide knows very good places to visit. Thank you all for my incredible experience!!

We booked this tour and also the night tour and we had such a fabulous time!! The first time we met our guide, Bharat, on the Night Tour we absolutely loved him and hoped he would be our guide on our second tour to Agra- which he was thankfully! He is one of the friendliest people we have ever met, he really took care of us and made us feel safe which is one of my main priorities when I go travel. He is very knowledgeable about the places we went to and about his country, explained more than we expected on our tours and happily answered any questions that we had. Needless to say, we were never bored with Bharat! We even felt comfortable enough with him to keep in contact even after our tours asking for advice and recommendations for our trip and he was happy to help us. His positivity was really refreshing and I'm more than happy to say I gained a friend in India.

The trip with Bharat and Arif was a delight! Bharat is an experienced driver and is very capable of navigating through the chaotic Indian traffic! He played us an array of Indian music - from folk to pop - he was well informed in so many different areas...we were never bored on our four trip from Jaipur to Agra! Arif - a passionate resident of Agra - who lives right next to the Taj Mahal - gave us a very informative tour of The Taj - and through his eyes we were able to capture the beauty and the love behind the breathtaking building. I highly recommend this very capable duo to take you on the magic journey to Agra!

We had an amazing time on this tour. Our driver, Bharat, was a very nice and always had a smile on his face. His attitude helped us keep positive throughout the long and very hot (summer time) trip from Jaipur to Agra and back. Our tour guide did a great job as well at the Taj. Definitely recommend.

I contracted through Viator a tour from Jaipur to Agra. The day before the tour I arrived at Jaipur a beautiful city and a must-see experience at India, by the way and called unseenindia. During the call I learned that the tour to Agra was in jeopardy because there was a social protest by a caste, which was blocking the main connections between Jaipur and Agra bus, cars and train services. Later in the day, the luck seemed to change because the roads were announced to be opened, so the next day 15 minutes earlier, the driver came to my hotel to pick me up in a comfortable car in an excellent condition. We started our trip to Agra but just a fourth of the way there we found the road blocked again. Fortunately, my driver talked to the police and found an alternate road that was safe and feasible. So, off we went through this detour that went through small villages with a road that for a better part was in such unmaintained conditions that was reduced to gravel and deep potholes. Nevertheless, this part of the trip was for me better that if we had gone through the main road because I could see a little bit of the real rural India and it was amazing. Eventually, we drove around the road blockage and got back to main road and Agra. This wouldnt have been possible if it wasnt for the experience of the driver. It wasnt just the skill to negotiate the road in poor condition which for him I imagine was nothing because he has driven the famous roads of northern India, featured in the TV show Ice Road Truckers-Himalaya but the ability to talk to police and locals in their own dialect and mannerisms. In short, the tour could have easily not happened because the driver could have decided many times to turn around but instead he went well above and beyond his obligation and kept working on making the tour happen because, as he put it I had traveled all the way from USA to see the Taj Mahal and he didnt want me to be disappointed because of a social protest.

The driver provided did not speak or understand a word of English. The guide at the Taj Mahal was excellent. Having to travel with someone for 11 hours in a car who cannot answer a question is unacceptable.
