Traveler Tips


Highly recommended doing Agra this away specially becuase of the safety of the train as highways can be dangerous.
I highly recommend using this company for the tour and highly recommend you ask for Hyder Ali for your tour guide if possible!
Note: even the 1st class restroom on the train was as bad as typical roadside gas station restrooms in the USA so be sure you have anti-bacterial wipes handy!

Our memorable Taj Mahal and Agra Fort trip
Liza_B, Feb 2023
The whole booking and trip experience were absolutely top drawer ! The Tour Managers communication is the best I’ve had and our tour guide Faizan has vast knowledge of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He was so polite and we felt very safe .we were handed to someone on every part of the journey from hotel pick up to hotel drop off . Faizan took photos for us which we will treasure as very special times. The car was clean and the driver was always on time as Faizan always called ahead to ensure he was there when we had finished each part of our day. I cannot speak highly enough about Pioneer Holidays and we hope to see Faizan again one day. I shall be recommending many friends who wish to come to India and beyond that the service is excellent .
Amazing time and picture from my guide Imran
Chad_B, Feb 2023
The Taj Mahal and the pictures Imran took were just amazing. Imran made that trip worth it. Very professional and knowledgeable. Make sure to request his service when visiting Agra
Day tour to Taj Mahal and Agra Fort with Faizan
Saara_M, Jan 2023
What a tour. Breathtakingly beautiful, stunning and so informative. Everything was perfect, from Arun fetching us promptly at 6.30am as arranged, to him dropping us in the evening. Pickup was earlier because of road closures due to republic day celebrations to get at the station on time. Arun seated us and send our pictures to Faizan in Agra. The train ride was comfortable and fast with a hearty breakfast served. As the train stopped in Agra, Faizan was waiting on the platform. Welcomed us and immediately made us feel very comfortable. The whole tour was smooth and excellent, with Faizan excellent knowledge of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort exemplary. His explanations were very easily understandable, and he made this tour never feel rushed or tedious. the perfect guide, extremely knowledgable, friendly, and accommodating to all our needs. He even assisted me in getting an Indian SIM card and even arranged for me and my wife to do our afternoon prayers after a scrumptious lunch at the Marriott in Agra. All questions were carefully answered and never hesitatated to repeat certain things we missed. Faizan arranged for a photographer at a very reasonable price and this allowed us to have all our pics taken at all the popular spots at the Taj Mahal. I will definitely recommend this tour and advise to request Faizan as your guide. It was truly an unforgettable and memorable experience from start to finish.

Great Experience!
NiaJordan, Jan 2023
I had a great time on this tour with our guide Nabeel and our driver Jeetu! The service was top notch from picking us up from our hotel in Delhi, making sure we got to our seats safely on the train, having someone there for our arrival once we arrived to Agra, and making sure we had a good time during our tour. Nabeel was so informative throughout the whole tour and showed us how to get the best photos at all the different monuments! I also give a huge compliment to Jeetu our driver because he made us feel completely safe and comfortable while maneuvering through the busy roads and was always promptly ready when we changed locations. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody interested in going to the Taj Mahal with Nabeel and Jeetu!

Best Taj Mahal Tour Ever
Pamela_M, Jan 2023
Definitely book this tour!!! Our guide Faizan was so knowledgeable and made us have the best day touring the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort! We loved him so much so definitely ask for him!! He spoke perfect English! The entire process was so seamless and easy from being picked up at our hotel and taken to the train station and having Faizen pick us up off the train in Agra. We were given beautiful flower necklaces upon greeting and we’re driven around in a new car. Faizen walked us everywhere and explained every detail so perfectly. We had an amazing lunch at the Marriott and we’re shown the best photo spots throughout the day. At the end of the day Faizen even had a printed picture of my husband and I from the Taj Mahal framed and gave it to us as a gift. We will tell all our friends visiting the Taj Mahal about Faizen and this company.

Amazing tour of the Taj Mahal with Faiz
Andreas_B, Jan 2023
This was an amazing trip. Pickup and drop off at the hotel went very smoothly. The driver took me to the platform and waited there when I returned in the evening. But the tour would have been only half as good if it wasn’t for the tour guide Faiz. He was extremely knowledgeable, had answers to all my questions. He made me very comfortable throughout the day, explained and prepared me for everything. His English is very good and he spoke with a lound enough voice, so the a person of impaired hearing like me understood him well. The choice of the restaurant for lunch was excellent. The driver was very good and took us safely to the heavy traffic of Agra. Overall, a very impressive tour which I will not forget for a long time. I highly recommend it. Ask for Faiz at your guide. You will not be disappointed.

The best hospitality and guided tour!
brijesh_d, Jan 2023
Hyder Ali (guide) and Amir showed beyond amazing hospitality and knowledge of the sites! It was an absolute pleasure being guided by them. Highly recommend them for others and would use them again. Hyder also made sure we had a spot picked out so I may propose! We felt like family!

Great tour! Highly recommend their services.
Mark_V, Jan 2023
Faizan was a great tour guide. He knew the details of the monuments and the history of India. He also took us to the perfect place to shop for our gifts. He made sure to keep us safe and knew the area very well. Our train was late due to weather and they made sure we got to still got to see the things we wanted to see. They made sure we got to the train on time and in the correct seats. Would definitely use this service again.

Great time at Agra
Murali_V, Jan 2023
Great experience - the train trip was OK delayed for over an hour by fog, which limited it time for sightseeing. Thanks to our guide, Nabeel and our driver, Sachin, we squeezed a lot in - including visiting a handmade rug/carpet factory. Thoroughly recommend the trip. Big thanks to Nabeel and Sachin. Clean car, good guidance.

Amazing Tour of Agra / Taj Mahal
Sarah_L, Jan 2023
We had a great time during the Taj Mahal and Agra Tour. Our driver in Delhi, Fazil, was very kind and helpful and the transfer to the train station was excellent. He helped us find our seats and picked us up from the platform again in the evening - we felt very safe. Pickup in Agra from the tour guide Faizan and driver Amir was also excellent - we even received flowers as a welcome! Faizan is a great tour guide, he explained the history of the different monuments very well and took nice pictures of us. His English was great as well. He even helped us find a store that sold postcards, which we were looking for. The driver in Agra, Amir, was also very polite. All in all we had an amazing day - thank you!!

The best way to experience Agra from Delhi
Richard_C, Jan 2023
The best way to see Agra and the Taj Mahal with great service and smooth experience from start to end. We had a fantastic day with our friendly and very knowledgable guide Shaan. We learned about the history of Agra, the story of the Taj Mahal and the amazing Agra Fort. We even got the Baby Taj as a bonus visit. Doing this as a day tour by train from Delhi was very efficient compared to going by car and the service was 100% friendly and professional.

Well organised and professional team.
Kamil_M, Jan 2023
Very well organised, kind and professional team, smooth and easy. However there is some room for improvement, such as the food, which could be more „local“ than a Marriott chain restaurant buffet (which was ok but far from good). A little bit too pushy for recommendations at various platforms. Overall they have managed to show us all the interesting sights and everything was on time and professional.

A great day trip to Agra from Delhi!
Emily_L, Dec 2022
We loved this tour! We were collected from our hotel and taken to our seat on the train. The train was very fast and comfortable. We were met by Shaan, our amazing tour guide. Shaan was brilliant and informative about both the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He made us feel very welcome and ensured we were happy at all times. We also had a great driver too and the car was clean, comfortable and cool! Lunch was also very good and a nice break between visiting the amazing monuments. At the end of the tour we were taken back to the train station and shown to our seat. All very smooth! We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit Agra from Delhi.

An amazing experience...
Stephen_H, Dec 2022
The entire day was a success. Everything from getting picked up at my hotel to being dropped off back at the hotel was as smooth as one would wish. My guide, Shaan, was fantastic. He was waiting at the train station with driver and marigolds for me. Totally not necessary but very cool nonetheless! He was personable and had a great wealth of information regarding the Taj Mahal. I highly recommend this tour.

Book. This. Now.
Rudi_S, Dec 2022
The reviews for this experience are why I booked it, and I am so happy that I did. My booking was acknowledged promptly via WhatsApp, initial questions answered, and all logistics confirmed the day prior. As for the day of: it was truly seamless. I was collected at my hotel, driven to the train station, escorted onto the train and to my seat. The driver then snapped my photo and sent it onto my guide in Agra, who greeted me at the station and escorted me to our awaiting vehicle. My guide, Nabeel, was patient, funny, and imparted his vast knowledge of Agra and the beautiful Taj Mahal in a delightful way. He’s also a great photographer and knows what the people want! Nabeel knows every trick in the book and I am grateful for his knowledge and expertise. (At the Red Fort, make sure that he shares his ‘magic trick’ with you. Agra-cadabra may become the catch phrase of 2023!)) Our driver, Jeetu, managed the (ridiculous) traffic, drivers, cows, goats and dogs with patience and grace. (I will never complain about drivers in NYC ever again!) After an amazing day in Agra, the return to New Delhi was just as seamless. Having the same driver from the morning greet me at the station in the evening was a lovely way to tie it all together. A few items to note that I was unaware of, likely because I didn’t read enough ahead of time: * Both legs of the train ride included food and beverage, which I was not expecting. The breakfast in the morning felt unending and incredibly generous. The snack on the evening leg was perfect to tide me over until dinner. * Don’t bring anything unnecessary with you to Agra. The only items allowed into the Taj Mahal are a camera, wallet and water bottle - no pens, newspapers, chargers, etc. I was grateful that I could leave my items with our driver Jeetu, but still, leave most things at your hotel!

A perfect 10 - Agra Tour experience
SAMIR_H, Dec 2022
The entire trip was a perfect 10/10: write from booking to finish. The Tour Manager Faizan was a super host. He gave the tour a personal touch and even spent personal time with us. He was super prompt in email queries. The guide Faizan was extremely knowledgeable and explained about all the monuments and the city and the history. The lunch at the Marriott was excellent. The taxi drivers were great too. All in all a very memorable experience of Agra and Delhi. With grateful thanks from us .

Experience of a Lifetime
Sarah_D, Dec 2022
What a once in a lifetime experience! First off, Nabeel was incredible and made sure we were comfortable, safe and taken care of the whole trip. He was very knowledgeable and taught us so much about the Taj Mahal and Fort Agra. This whole experience was hassle free from the moment we were picked up from our hotel. We never had to worry about what our next move was. Jeetu, our driver, picked us up and got us to each destination with ease. We had such an incredible time and owe it all to Nabeel and Jeetu. Being in India for the first time can be overwhelming with getting to and from places. With this tour, we didn’t have to worry about that at all. Thank you Nabeel for this experience. We will never forget it.
