This was so worth the 3 hour drive each way from New Delhi. Early morning pick up by the driver and then meeting Sameer, the guide in Agra. It was a smooth ride and as a female traveler alone, I felt safe and looked after. These guys are professionals. Sameer is a wealth of information...and the Taj Mahal the pictures don't do it are just in awe of this structure comes alive with stories of the Mughal and his three wives. We took our time and after 1.5 hours at the Taj Mahal, and 109 degree weather, I was ready to go home. No pressure to visit shops or see other places even though they were included in the rate. They were accommodating and took the cue from the client. Many thanks Sameer!!

My wife and her coworker had a fantastic trip to the Taj Mahal through Viator. They were picked up at 530 by Gurmeet at their hotel in New Delhi and rode comfortably up to Agra for the day. There they met Sameer, their tour guide who took them through the Taj Mahal and other landmarks there before returning them to the hotel that evening. My wife and her coworker remarked how friendly and accommodating their driver and guide were, and that the tour was outstanding. I must also thank Viator for being willing to change the departure time at the last minute when my wife and her coworker's flight was delayed.

I had a wonderful time on this tour! The Kaimur Holidays gentlemen were courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. I was really excited to visit Agra to see the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort, and I learned a lot in the process. We moved at a comfortable pace throughout the tour, allowing me to take all the pictures I wanted and to embrace the experience. I also appreciated that I was able to customize the tour according to my preferences. I would recommend Kaimur Holidays to anyone interested in visiting Agra.

This was a great day trip - and one of the most economical private tours available. The tour operator was Kaimur Holidays and they were fantastic. I was able to communicate with them via WhatsApp I did not have a local phone number and they were very helpful in arranging for my pickup and dropoff. Our guide was very knowledgeable, spoke great English and ensured a memorable day. I would definitely use them again if I'm back in the area.

My very first visit to the Taj Mahal was not something I wanted to leave to chance. Your first view of this heaven on earth should be facilitated by a team of professionals who know how to make travel dreams come true.

Fortunately, I booked a private day tour through Kaimur Holidays. My wonderful driver Ramesh arrived promptly at my hotel in a comfortable, immaculate, very well air-conditioned car crucial as this was the hottest June on record in the plains of North Central India!. The new highway from Delhi to Agra makes the journey a pleasant two and a half hours with comfortable rest stops along the way.

Once in Agra, I had the pleasure to meet my guide, Sameer. Sameer holds a graduate diploma in history and his knowledge of Agra and the Mughal Emperors was outstanding. I should mention that I am a retired professor with a PhD in history, so I feel that my commendation of Sameer's qualifications does carry some weight! He is not only an expert in history- Sameer is also very personable, patient, good humored, speaks impeccable English, and is an excellent conversationalist.

I was so delighted with the services of Sameer, Ramesh, and Kaimur Holidays that I am booking a private tour through Rajasthan with the exact same team in August. I cannot wait!

This tour was awesome! There are no words to describe how magnificient the Taj Mahal was and Agra Fort was amazing too. My tour guide Shan was very knowledgeable and very patient when I wanted to linger a little longer or take numerous photographs.

My guide, Shanoo, was very knowledgeable about the history and sites. He made sure that I was having fun and checked to see if I had any questions. I would love to go back to Taj Mahal and I highly recommend booking this service.

The only tour package that I found that is willing to take one person at a reasonable price. The entire process were very smooth from end to end. Got a confirmation call almost a minute after I placed the order! The hotel pick up, local guide meet up all happened seamlessly. The tour itself was also pleasant and insightful.

Our tour guide was good. He took good care of us. He did seem to receive a lot of phone calls during the tour and that was distracting at times.

Our driver was not so good. He was late to pick us up. He then stopped to buy diesel. He then stopped on the toll road even though we said we were fine to continue on. The stop was over 15 minutes long which seemed strangely long for just him going in after just picking us up and just buying gas. Then he proceeded to talk on the phone the rest of the way to Agra. Once in Agra with the guide he seemed to be more on point but once we were leaving Agra he went right back to his old ways. He went back to talking on the phone for almost all of the way back to the hotel. Again stopped on the toll road for over 15 minutes even though we said were fine to continue on. This was after he had many breaks while we were on tour. While on the toll road back in very light traffic he seemed to just drift from one side of the road to the other for no apparent reason. He was up over 140km per hour while on the toll road at times. Then when we got into Delhi he came very close to having a car accident at least twice. In our time in India he was by far the worst driver we had!!! And he drove in less traffic and easier road conditions than any of the others.

Note from Viator: 

Thank you for your feedback. We have received the following information from your local tour operator:
Thank you for traveling with us. We are always committed to delivering the best to our precious guests. As we conduct this tour via Express Way, the driver does unfortunately have to stop at all toll booths to pay taxes which may take some time. However, we understand your concerns regarding his level of service and can assure you he is no longer with our company, as he did not meet our high level of standards. Also, we wish to remind our guests to always check the Inclusions and Exclusions on our tour's brochure page, as the monument tickets are not included in the overall cost of this particular tour package. We are glad to hear you still enjoyed your tour guide and hope to see you in Agra again soon.
