What people are saying about New Delhi
We were picked up on time and our driver was good. Our tour guide Shain was extremely friendly and helpful, we would recommend taking a tour with him at any time. The sunrise tour was a great option because there weren't as many tourists crowding, and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing about the history at the Agra Fort. I especially enjoyed how Shain always offered to take our picture and showed us the best photo opportunities. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
Private car, driver and guide was absolutely great. I unfortunately lost the name of our driver but he was very nice and kind. Took us to breakfast before the long 3.5 hours to Agra. Once in Agra we picked up our guide Akil who was fantastic. Showed us all around the Taj, baby Taj and the Agra Fort. Lunch was at a great restaurant. Overall a great value for the $ and we tipped well! Definitely worth a day trip so I recommend making the time!
December 2019 - Janu and his driver were amazing! Everything was organized nicely for us. A great train ride down and back and made sure we were safe and taken care of. The sights we saw were pretty good, although I didn't feel like we needed much time at the fruit and veggie market, but that was OK and they were fairly flexible. I would definitely book Janu again as it was a great and safe experience! Recommended!
The organisation for our trip was fantastic. We were booked at the same time as Holi Festival which meant the monuments were closed on one of the days. Our driver and guide reorganised the itinerary which meant we could participate in the festival as well as see the amazing sights.
Although we booked a late start at 11 am, the guide managed to make the most of our time, and still made it to the most famous points of attraction of the city. Next time we do the rest. Depart before 9 am.
