Overall, I had a good trip to Agrar and would recommend the tour. Pick-up and ride went smoothly, although the drive is quite long and quite adventurous at times. My tour guide was Indian and spoke perfect German. He was really nice and funny and took a lot of pictures from me in front of the most beautiful spots. As I did not have reception on the way to the Taj, he offered to buy the tickets for me online and I reimbursed him later in cash without any mark-ups. Breakfast at the hotel was good and not too expensive. However, the overall tour is comparatively expensive. Including tickets and breakfast, I paid around 130 euros.

Absolutely fantastic experience start to finish! Imran is incredibly knowledgeable, taught me a lot about the Taj Mahal and had lots of ideas for photographs, which he was happy to take for me. Pick up from my hotel in Delhi was smooth and comfortable; the driver even stopped along the way so we could try masala chai. Breakfast after the tour was delicious too with plenty of Indian delicacies and continental favourites to choose from. As a solo female traveller, I had reservations about what I would be able to do on my own but I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Thank you so much

Saurabh was an excellent guide! We had an amazing day….great experiences! He had so much to tell us and show us. We enjoyed the flexibility as he geared his tour to our requirements. He went above and beyond. We loved the spice market and the sights and sounds of old Delhi! We can’t fault him or our driver. Very personable and friendly. This was a fantasy tax way to see the sights and learn about the history of Delhi. Thank you very much! Highly recommended.

This trip to Agra was much better than expected. Rafeeq was a very professional and attentive guide, who explained us very details about history, architecture, materials, and trivials of Taj Mahal as a local. He was very keen on helping us take great photos too. The tour started early in the morning to catch sunrise and avoid the crowded queue, which was totally worth it. Highly recommended.

A great experience. We had an excellent driver and comfortable car. In each city, a local guide met us who was knowledgeable about that area. The tour could be adjusted based on our personal interests and time constraints.
