We took the Delhi to Agra one-day trip on March 2nd 2020. The excellent (!) driver Jitender picked us up at our hotel and took us to Agra in a neat and comfortable car. On the way he stopped several times to let us have a quick glance at some landmarks in Delhi - we really enjoyed that! The ride to Agra took about 3 hours in total and we added a quick stop for breakfast and a coffee somewhere along the way. Once we reached Agra we met our guide Arif, who took us to the Taj Mahl, the Agra Fort and a craftsmen demonstration of Indian marble and inlay art. Arif was very energetic and we enjoyed our time with him very much. He took a lot of pictures, knew a lot of good spots to take pics and was very knowledgeable about the sights as well. We had lunch at a pretty fancy place for Indian standards and it was also really delicious! At the craftsman's stop we were not pressured to buy anything, but we just had a look around and listened to the demonstration.
The tour was exceptionally well executed: the taxi pick up and drop offs were seamless, walked to specific train and guided to our train seats. Guide was charming, attentive, and informative. Taken to a very good Indian restaurant (which was not included in price). Enjoyed visiting Baby Taj, and skipped walking into Fort, as I had been there before. Feedback was given to tour agency: provide box lunches from better catering company and skip the train food. Really not appetizing. You might want to bring your own food.
Great one day trip to the stunning Agra Fort and of course, the Taj Mahal! Our guide Haris was very knowledgeable about the history and heritage of the area, and kindly took many photos of us, which is always a plus ☺️ Our driver Raj was also professional, punctual, and seemed to navigate the hectic traffic with ease! Lunch at the Agra hotel was also delicious. Would highly recommend the tour.
Faisal was a great guide, very knowledgable and told us the history of the Taj Mahal. Lovely views from the rooftop lunch spot.
Excellent trip. Well organised, fantastic drivers, brilliant guide and good value for money.
