I thoroughly enjoyed my sunrise Taj Mahal tour. I opted for the driver only option, which worked out very well as I was quite happy to walk around alone at my own pace. I was picked up from my hotel in Delhi at 2:30am and we drove 3 hours to Agra. My driver Mr Harbans was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable in the car. He also told me some information about Delhi, the taj, the red fort, and other things along the road which was interesting. But he was also happy to give me some peace and let me sleep along the way! We made a toilet stop on the journey where there was a few little food places and shops so that was nice to stretch my legs. It was incredible to see the sunrise at the Taj Mahal, a true moment which made me speechless! So it made the early rise well worth it! The red fort was also very beautiful to look around and the view of the taj from there was great. The booking process was very easy.

Yesterday we left for this tour to discover the different religious beliefs of India and there are so many ... I entered this day tour while organizing the trip almost at random, and it is one of the best tours of the whole trip. Our guide Sandeep was able to fascinate us with his tales, his kindness and his way of always courteous and undressed fare.We visited a Jain temple, a Sikh temple, an Hindu temple, a mosque and a cathedral in Delhi to see all the cults (some of these I didn't know at all) and we were really in love with the Sickh temple where there is a huge kitchen where volunteers even from different religions prepare food for everyone ... and a large hall where people can eat a meal hot We too thanks to Sandeep stopped for a while to prepare some bread. It is the place where we tasted a wonderful and original Energy. We also shared a wonderful meal with Sandeep who stayed there

We had an awesome time. Our driver was punctual in the morning. He came around 1:45am. He was patient and took such great care of us. Very protective and friendly driver. We were even able to do some shopping. Our tour guide, Manoj, was so knowledgeable about the history of the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Baby Taj. He made the tour entertaining and fun. The tour guide was fun, fatherly and warm. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

Excellent tour! For those who get up early, for those who want good photos without people, and for those who cannot start the whole day without breakfast! I recommend the guide, the driver and the tour 100%, when I return to New Delhi I will take this same tour

The driver and the tour guide Kumar were professional and friendly
