Travelling by the Taj Express Train on this day tour from NewDelhi was amazing. Visiting the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Agra was a dream come true. My guide, Shaan, has a great depth of knowledge of the area and sites, which he imparted to me in a lovely clear, interesting way and with humour. I had an amazing day which just flew by. The Taj Mahal in particular was so beautiful and stunning. My driver in Agra, Raju, zipped us around safely and in comfort to the sites. I unreservedly recommend this tour. I did include all the optional additions on this tour which thus included pick up from the hotel and return to the hotel, breakfast and dinner on the train, lunch in Agra, all entrance fees, including express access to the sites and was so glad I did. I was able to relax and just enjoy the whole experience. I
Highly recommended! Couldnt have asked for a better experience.
Traveling solo for business and had a free weekend. After reading a ton of reviews on various tour companies I booked my Agra tour and I couldnt have asked for more. The communication was excellent which really helped put me at ease. I was met at the airport on Sat. morning and taken to the train station, escorted onboard the train and to my seat. On each handover they took a pic to send to the next contact as a safety measure. The next guy would show you the pic to ensure that you didnt wind up going with someone you shouldnt.
Once in Agra I was met by my guide Khalid and driver Mr. Singh. Both were fantastic. Mr Singh was a somewhat subdued gentleman with a great sense of humor and Khalid was a wealth of knowledge who was very like able and a treat to spend the day with.
I highly suggest requesting Khalid, an Agra native, for your tour. He kept the day moving and with conversation but was never pushy. He let me have plenty of space to enjoy the Taj and fort but never let me out of his sight. In addition to the tours, we had an amazing lunch and did some shopping. The shopping was at my request and Khalid never made me feel pressured to buy which differs from what I read in reviews of other tour companies.
Getting back to Dheli and to the airport was a well coordinated reverse of getting to Agra pics, escorted to ny seat etc.... Overall, the day was error free and I was in complete control throughout the tour. If you plan to visit Agra dont pass these guys by!
Seeing the Taj Mahal was quite amazing! Our tour guide (Hilal) was also a very good photographer so he was able to help us take incredible photos of the Taj and also took great photos of me and my friend! A must see :)
Everything on the tour with Taj Destinations was brilliant, perfect communication all the time, punctual and a very tailored service in case you want something particular, in the future I will definitely count with them, they don't try to abuse you on prices and always give you tips on how to move, do and shop in India, it was excellent for my first adventure in the country traveling alone, Namaste Asif !!!
The guide in Delhi was great and even went with us on the train and the rest of the tour to be sure we had no problems. The guide in Agra should have at least taken the time to orient us as to what we should expect after the tour. At the end of your tour, you will be taken to a place to supposedly educate you on how something is done, but it is in fact a place where they will try to sell you items at inflated prices. Don't ever pay what they say is the price. The more accurate value is usually closer to half of what the original price quote is. In addition, it is common practice in India that the guide typically gets a commission for bringing you to the store. If you aren't interested, just say no and be polite but firm about it. You can even tell them you don't want to go at all, but some of the places they take you have some nice items.
The company who did this is very professional and has excellent service .
I was very impressed by the level of communication before and during the trip. A lot of attention to detail allowed the party of 2 to travel from central Dehli to the Taj with ease. Our guide was informed and helpful alone a 7/10. It was disappointing to be shown so many markets when asked not to so please keep this in mind when booking any tour.
