What an amazing tour! I cannot recommend this enough. Bobby our driver was the best he had amazing service, always went out his way to keep us happy and always kept positive always laughing and cracking jokes! Bobby also constantly stopped to allow us to try new things we hadn’t tried before which was also very good, we couldn’t have asked for a better driver for the tour. Also always ensured we were comfortable throughout. He recommended such good places for food and had good local tour guides too who helped us with different things like for example getting SIM cards and dealing with different experiences we weren’t normally used to. The company had worked out the tour according to our needs and it all worked perfectly and we seen loads when on this tour it was full days and they ensured we made most of the tour definitely worth the money we paid! If your contemplating booking this, definitely book it you will not regret it we couldn’t have done all that he had done without this tour!

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!

Varun, i.e. Vinny made the experience so much easier that it might have been without him. My daughter and I both agreed we may never have made it past the line to buy a ticket let alone the 2-hour entry line. Vinny also helped negotiate a good deal with a photographer and helped out by taking some stunning pictures with our phones, arranging the tuk tuk ride back to where our driver was parked so we didn't have to walk up narrow crowded lanes. He made the whole experience exceptional allowing us to relax and enjoy this magnificent site that truly deserves its' designation as one of the wonders of the world. And, we learned a lot as well. I would recommend him unconditionally.

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
