Hi, we went to Agra to see the Taj and the red fort, it was a great trip tour guide and driver were really good helpful and very competent.
Overall the experience was amazing. They picked me up from my Airbnb in the morning, there was the most fog they have had and visibility was low. The driver was phenomenal and it took us nearly four hours to get there since we couldn't see 10 feet in front of us, it took two and a half to get back. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was willing to snap photos of me everywhere since I was traveling alone. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
It's a very long day but an incredible one. A driver picked us up at our hotel and took us to Agra, where we met our tour guide. He led us through the grounds of the Taj Mahal while providing a wealth of information and knowledge. Afterwards, we visited the impressive Agra Fort and enjoyed a delicious Indian feast at a restaurant in Agra, Taj Darbar. A very memorable and enjoable day!
A great tour! Beware of the fog and the driving conditions for when you plan to travel. But if you want a driver that will get you there no matter the conditions, this is the tour for you!
My husband and I really enjoyed our day despite a shaky start. Our driver picked us up at our hotel in Gurgaon and we were a bit disappointed that he could not speak English very well. Because we had read an earlier review we were not taken by surprise and knew that we would be connected with a fluent guide once we arrived in Agra.
Our guide made us feel completely comfortable and often anticipated our needs. At every step he made us aware of important small details like watching out for pick-pockets, where to find clean toilets and where to stand to take really good photos. He even took some photos for us which have turned out to be some of our best of the trip.
We enjoyed both the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The commentary was great and we enjoyed the way he made things interesting with stories and quirky details about the architecture.
We had been concerned about lunch and felt a bit awkward when we realised we were the sole customers for most of the meal. But the food was actually really delicious. There was a lot of variety and more than we could eat.
We weren't quite sure how we ended up at a marble factory after the tour and were highly suspicious of a hard sell. The manager did do his best to sell us some products but we did not feel particularly pressured. I ended up purchasing a small dish that I love.
It is a long day but, all in all, it was the best day in India and we would highly recommend it.

Fantastic experience. Driver was on time and we felt 100 safe for the entire drive despite there being crazy fog. Tour guide was excellent and was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.
Great tour - even with having to drive two hours in the fog getting out of Delhi. Tour Guide Hussein was quite informative, helped 'fend off' unwanted vendors/beggars, and was an expert in taking some spectacular pictures during the trip. Well worth it.
The driver picked me up at Gurgaon at 6am and drove all the way to Agra by 10am. He had good driving skills and was so friendly. The tour guide was good and he provided some historical stories when we were in the attractions such as Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Baby Taj. He arranged some time for me to walk around and to take pictures by my own, which I enjoyed so much. It was supposed to have a shopping session in the local market after lunch, but the tour guide sort of sensed I am not a fan of shopping, he offered me to skip the shopping and go back to the hotel right after lunch if I wanted to. So Great! The driver then took another 4.5 hours to drive me back to Gurgaon. We had some chit-chat during the journey and i felt safe in his car! : Highly recommended to those single traveller with not much interested in getting local souvenirs!
Perfect tour ever.. Good driver.. Excellent guide... Amazing place
