What people are saying about Agra

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!

We loved everything about the tour. Our tour guide Aashish Gupta was very helpful and he even came to pick up us from the hotel and even came to drop us to the hotel. He is knowledgeable and told us the history and amazing stories of Taj Mahal. He answered every single question we asked and he is one of the best tour guide we have ever met. I recommend him to everyone. Looking forward for more trips with you.

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.

Very well organised. The guide was knowledgeable, courteous and fluent.

The guide Was very helpful and had full knowledge of Taj Mahal.
