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.

We booked this trip before we came out to India on the recommendation of friends. We were picked up from our hotel, taken to the train station and then met at Agra. There we spent the day with our guide Ashik Khan who was very friendly, knowledgable and with excellent English. We went to the three sites and learnt so much. Ashik was also very good at picking the right spots to take our photos - he took some great pics of us too. We finished off the tour with a great Indian curry. We would highly recommend this company and Ashik. Thank you.

Everything was good. Our Tour guide, Amir and our driver in Agra Vijay was good!!!! Pick up from our Delhi was on time, directed to the train station and took the Gatiman Express to Agra. When we arrived we were greeted by our driver with our name printed on the paper. Our private tour kickoff at Taj Mahal, we spent some times there and our guide did everything he could to explain the history of this place. The we went to the restaurant for Lunch, which was also good. After lunch we went to the Agra Fort, and again it was memorable. Amir showed us the optical illusion of the Taj Mahal (recommended) Overall it was a very good trip and experience!!! He had good times and good photos (Amir got very good skill!!)
