We had an excursion from Delhi to Agra with guide Sasha (it’s russian version from Ashfaq) in russian language. We left Delhi at night, the driver picked us up from the hotel and met with the guide already in Agra. Sasha speaks russian very well and knows a lot about Russia, was very polite. We have seen Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, everything was good. And then on the next day after our excursion Sasha helped us very much twice!! We had some problems with booking tickets and taxi from Fatehpur Sikri and Sasha was in touch with us and really helped us out a lot! Thank him a lot for that. And also he adviced us a bar in Agra and it was really great experience and evening. So we were pleased a lot with that excursion!

This has been an excellent tour. The whole experience from pick-up at the Delhi airport to transiting to Agra and the Taj Mahal has been perfect. Ali zaif and Chotu have been an amazing guide and driver. Would highly recommend for anyone wishing to see all that Agra has to offer and learn a bit about the history of the Taj Mahal.

Very amazing trip which was totally worth it The pick up was on time and we arrived at Taj Mahal right before sunrise My guide Rafeeq told me a lot of facts and also facts that most of the people don't know. He also took some amazing pictures of which are totally instagramable
