Our guide was very knowledgeable and approachable. We would recommend him to other travellers. Our driver was exceptional. My only disappointment was that the Tarj Mahal tour was described as a sunrise tour so we expected to see the sunrise over the Tarj however, by the time we arrived the sun was already up?

We were picked up on time and our driver was good. Our tour guide Shain was extremely friendly and helpful, we would recommend taking a tour with him at any time. The sunrise tour was a great option because there weren't as many tourists crowding, and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing about the history at the Agra Fort. I especially enjoyed how Shain always offered to take our picture and showed us the best photo opportunities. Thanks for the wonderful experience!

My tour was excellent. My driver arrived on time and was a safe driver throughout the trip. We had a brief 5 minute bathroom break on each segment, and arrived in plenty of time. Cars can only go so far before you have to travel another few minutes to the entrance gate, so you can either pay $1.00 to ride the bike rickshaw or pay a little more for the golf cart. I opted for the rickshaw, just for the experience. My tour guide, Amir, was extremely knowledgeable and knew all the right places for taking amazing pictures. I appreciated the casual tour, not feeling rushed, and trusted he knew where to be and when to be there for the best views. I went on a Saturday when there were more crowds, so you may have to be patient getting the picture spots. I opted to visit the baby Taj afterwards, instead of the fort. I thought it was a good choice since we passed by the fort on the way and got a brief explanation of it from the car. Overall a great time. I would choose them again.
