This was an amazing full day tour, and when I say full day it certainly was that being picked up at 5am from the hotel and dropped back at about midnight ...made this a very long day.....but well worth it!
We were picked up and taken to the train station, escorted right to our seats! the train ride takes about 2hrs. Rocky our tour guide was at the station to meet us, we then went to the Taj Mahal, the Agra Fort another fort out of town, plus lunch and visiting shops and markets in Agra. If you have only a day this is the tour to do! Recommended!

Very well organised with professionals managing each step of the journey to Agra and back. Our guide in Agra, Rajesh, was very knowledgeable and gave us a good balance of history and great sights. Overall the tour surpassed our expectations - great day out

First, it's probably partially my fault for booking a tour that's so long hotel pickup at 5am, planned dropoff at midnight. It would have been a brutally long day if we had completed the entire thing.

But that said, by lunchtime, the guide let me know that we were ahead of schedule, and he planned to be done by 4pm, which would leave me 5.5 hours waiting for my train back to Delhi. I ended up paying the driver to take me back to Delhi by car it cost 95 rather than waiting so long for the train. Overall, the scheduling issues left a very bad taste for me.

Even beyond the scheduling problems, this tour didn't live up to the high expectations I have developed for Viator tours. The guide was very nice and friendly, but he was a little difficult to understand and didn't seem as knowledgeable as past guides I've had. The logistics of hotel pickup, train dropoff, and meeting the guide were needlessly complicated. There were 5 people involved, and I felt like I kept getting handed over to someone different.

As with many of these tours, there is a shopping component which involves them taking you around to handicraft shops where the owners try to get you to buy stuff. It's a mixed bag in terms of how much pressure there is to buy, but I get tired of saying no to people over and over again. I wanted to sightsee, not deal with pressured shopping situations.

Taj Mahal was absolutely incredible, well worth the trip alone. Agra fort was interesting since you're already in the area, but couldn't hold a candle to the Taj Mahal. I intentionally selected a tour involving Fatehpur Sikri based on a friend's recommendation. It's an interesting place, but it is REALLY far out of the way. It ends up adding 3-4 hours to the trip. I think it would be worth seeing if you were in Agra for a few days, but for a single-day trip I wish I had chosen a half-day tour of just Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Your mileage may vary.

Our trip from Delhi to Agra to see the Taj turned out to be an amazing experience thanks to the persons involved in handling the trip. Beginning from pickup at the Hotel to being helped to board the train to Agra right up to being dropped back at the a Hotel, every step was handled in an extremely efficient manner. Information given by guide Rocky at the Taj was useful as also at Fatehpur Sikri. We were four persons all aged above 60 and great care was taken to cater to our special needs. Overall a great experience. Special thanks to Viator who made this trip a memorable one.

Excellent trip. My guide Raj was well versed and easy to understand and communicate. He knew all the perfect photo spots and how to avoid the crowds. It is a long day but well worth it. The train was comfortable as well. - Jeff, Tampa Florida, USA

On my bucket list and this trip lived up to my expectations.From the pick up from the hotel to being escorted onto our fast train to being met by our guide who was truly a gem and a font of knowledge to our return trip to the Taj in New Delhi the day was exceptional.So was all the behind the scenes work undertaken by the tour operator and Raj was most interactive and quick to respond to any question we had. The shops we were taken to at the end of the day were interesting and certainly ones we would not have found by ourselves. The quality of product was also high.I cannot recommend this tour more highly

The tour is really great. The only flaw is that the guide takes you to several shopping places, but that's normal in this industry.

A great day well organised. The pick up from the hotel and transfer to the train was on time. we were taken to our seats before the guide departed. At Agra we were met and escorted for the day by Manoj the guide and Sanju the driver. Manoj had a wonderful way of giving us the history of the Taj Mahal explaining the love story that led to it being built and the unhappy family events afterwards. Manoj took photos of us a we went round and showed us the finer pints of the workmanship and materials used in the construction. The factory where the marble marquetry is practiced was really interesting. The lunch in a local restaurant was very nice. Sanju, the driver, took us to each destination safely in a comfortable car. We could not stay for the end of the tour because we had a flight to catch and we had arranged with the local operator for the driver to bring us back to Delhi and then transfer us to the airport. Sanju was with us all day and drove us the three hours back to Delhi, waited while we packed and then drove us to the airport.
I would recommend this trip.
