As a female solo traveller, I felt very safe and well taken care of on this trip. It was a long and cray day but worth all of it. I was picked up on time by a very friendly driver, Dharmendra, at 2:30am from my hotel. I went during high fog season in Dehli December, so it took us over 5 hours to get to Agra. My driver was being as safe as one could be in the fog. There were times that I had to close my eyes and not look- so something to think about if booking during fog season in the fall. When we arrived, I had breakfast and met my guide. As it was so foggy, he suggested we visit Agra Fort first. Although I didn't get to see Taj Mahal at sunrise, it was great to get the back story to both structure's history. My guide, Rishi Pal, has a degree in history and spoke perfect English. I highly recommend if visiting Agra that you go to the sites with a guide as there are millions of little details to know about. As an engineer, I found both structures fascinating and of course the history of religion, kings, love, and betrayal was also amazing. I also was taken to lunch and two stores for replica rug work from Agra Fort and marble work from Taj Mahal. I guess in combination of getting wrapped up in the excitement, operating on very little sleep and the long and crazy drive in the fog, I went home with a rug and a marble candle holder! What a day! FYI - without fog, we made it back to Dehli in 3.5 hours.

What an amazing tour! Our driver was Vishan and he was very prompt and arrived on-time for our pick-up and he was very quick to pick us up when we were done in between tour sites. Our tour guide was also very animated and provided insightful history of the Taj Mahal. Also, the tour operator was very available and answered our questions and accomodate every single request we had. I highly recommend.

Viator is an AWESOME site to book through. Could not recommend any more highly. Everything went very smoothly, they had a driver arrive 30 minutes ahead of schedule just to make sure things went well. They coordinated with my hotel. Took excellent care of me--bottled water in the car, able to stop and get tea/a snack whenever, customized the tour to what I wanted. But the best part are the GUIDES. Truly wonderful. Very knowledgable, totally professional and just great people. I was traveling in India for the first time, by myself, and for me this was a great fit. For large groups this would also be great. Plus, seeing the Taj Mahal early in the morning before the crowds get there is more than worth it.

My partner and I were promptly picked up at our hotel by the driver and guide. The car was very comfortable and air conditioned. We were actually the first people in line and first to enter the Taj Mahal that morning. The colors at sunrise were stunning. Our guide was Mahesh and he was extremely knowledgeable and professional. We had a wonderful day with him and he thoroughly explained all of the sites we visited and answered all of our questions thoughtfully. The lunch that was included was a buffet, which was a great way to try many different items. Mahesh said goodbye in Agra and our driver took us back to Delhi. This was a great way to experience the Taj Mahal and convenient for getting to and from Agra.

It was worth it to book the sunrise tour because you arrive early enough to beat the crowds! Our pick up in Delhi was on time and well organized. Our driver was very professional and knowledgeable, and honestly made the 3 hour ride to Agra enjoyable. Upon arrival at the Taj, our guide was also very knowledgeable. He gave us time to explore on our own, but also was able to show us the most important parts of Agra and the Taj Mahal. He was a big help for our group and offered to take pictures, which was very nice! The breakfast was the only part I would have skipped, but overall, really well planned and worth the money. The Taj Mahal is one of the most majestic sites I have ever seen and it was great to have someone with us who know where to go and the history of the sites we were seeing.
