My Taj Mahal Tour with my guide Faizal was I great experience. All what I wanted to see in India was the famous Taj Mahal (since I was a child). Now, in my Seventies, my dream came true. I'm very happy I chose this trip through GetYourGide. They managed my whole tour in a fantastic way and organized with Faizal an extraordinary guide with a lot of knowledge, not only about Taj Mahal, but also the Indian history and culture. I highly recommend Faizal to anybody who likes to have a great tour in Agra.

The experience was great, Vishal was a great guide and thoroughly explained everything in the trip. The whole experience was much easier than expected, we felt very welcomed and safe throughout the entire trip. The food was also in a great place, and was a great bang for the buck. Overall, the experience was great, we had a mini van and everything was comfortable throughout the trip. Definitely recommended.

Faizal was our guide for Taj Mahal and he guided us very well all the way from railway station to the monument - he brought us in a taxi, then an electric vehicle to go to the Mahal and back. He talks politely and he’s very friendly guide. Definitely recommend him !

Everything was smooth and easy. The drivers and my guide, Sadiq, were attentive and helpful. Sadiq was very knowledgeable about the history and architecture, which made the tour vey interesting. I would definitely recommend the tour.

We very much enjoyed this tour and Stan was an excellent guide. We tried delicious food and it was a fantastic way to introduce us to Old Delhi! Would definitely recommend!
