Excellent service, the staff was very professional and proficient. I highly recommend this for people traveling alone, you feel safe and comfortable and this makes the experience of visiting this wonder even more enyoyable.

Awesome tour. Absolutely the best time to see the Taj is at sunrise, crowds are light and not as hot even in May. Ravi, my driver, was prompt and polite and kept cold beverages for me throughout the day. Manesh, my guide, was very knowledgeable about the Taj and the Red Fort and even added in another stop at Itimad-ud-Daulah's Tomb on my request. He also took my picture as I was traveling alone. The only thing I would change is that the breakfast provided at a local hotel in Agra was just so-so. Otherwise, highly recommend this tour and company!

Amazing tour. Picked up by our driver Rajsingh at 2:30am in a lovely air conditioned minibus - there were 6 of us and we each had a reclining seat. Arrived a hotel in Agra at about 5:30am where we met our guide who took us in to the Taj Mahal for sunrise. He was really helpful and gave us the history before leaving us to explore on our own. We met him at the end and were taken back to the hotel for breakfast. We were then taken to inlay and carpet making shops. Whilst this was really interesting, it did feel awkward when we did not want to buy anything. We were then driven back to Delhi. I would highly recommend this private tour.

It was a wonderful experience

The driver, Manik, picked me up from my hotel at 2.30 am and then drove up to Agra where we met the local guide, Neeraj Rawat Carlos .
Manij was excellent driving me to all the places we visited , very responsible and punctual

Neeraj was great. Very nice person able to explain, answer all my questions and friendly and engaged. He speaks perfect Spanish so all the tour was in Spanish as in originally from Argentina
We visited the Taj, took about one hour. The timing was good as there wasnt much people there. Then they drove me to a hotel where I got beak fast and was able to use the restroom which were pretty clean

After then, we went to a marble place to see the techniques to incrust stone in marble ant then to the Agra Fort which is amazing. After finishing the about one hour visit to the fort I asked them to stop in other place to buy some souvenirs, both Manik and Neeraj were berry gentle and the drove me to a place and wait outside while I bought some stuff.

I have to say thanks to both, they are very kind, offered food and water to me and took good care of me

I definitely recommend it his tour, company and specially the two guys.

Ive got back at the hotel in Delhi about 4pm and was ready to enjoy and have some rest at the pool

We had an enjoyable day with Viator tour. Our guide was delightful, knowledgeable and attentive. We also could not ask for a better driver. The Taj Mahal was an amazing sight and had been on our bucket list for a really long time. Having a great tour guide and safe driver make the experience even more memorable. Highly recommended!

This was an incredible day! As a woman traveling alone, I was a little concerned, but my driver Prem and guide Seema could not have been more professional and welcoming. Prem was early for our scheduled pickup at 2:30 am!, and was super friendly, sharing tons of facts as we drove. Seema was incredibly knowledgeable about the sites we saw. She was also very patient as I took dozens of photographs. Thanks to both Seema and Prem for a wonderful day and fantastic memories, and thanks to Nikita Holidays for accomodating my req! The only thing to be aware of is that the tour included two visits to artisans who had showrooms full

We were travelling from the United States and this trip was a one day sightseeing outing that we had in mind. This was the first visit to the Taj Mahal for our company President and therefore it had to be special. I have been to the Taj Mahal twice before so this was going to be exciting. Nikita Holidays fulfilled what was committed to on our itinerary. Our driver Ravi was a safe driver given that we were on the Yamuna expressway. Our tour guide Avnish were very professional and was thorough in terms of his knowledge of the history of the Taj Mahal and some of the trivia that he shared with us were amazing too. You absolutely have to see the Taj at Sunrise and we were The breakfast arrangement was very good and the best part was that since we did the tour early in the morning, it did not get very hot

This itinerary is ideal. I had a full day in Delhi, went to bed at a reasonable hour, and met my driver at 2:30 a.m. Sleeping in the car on the way, so I arrived refreshed and ready to go! Greatly enjoyed Agra and returned early enough to continue my Delhi adventurers. Additionally, seeing the Taj Mahal at sunrise is an unparalleled, wonderous aesthetic, photographic experience.

The driver Perm and guide, Avneesh, were highly professional. It was a true pleasure, privilege to have them as my driver and guide.
