It was an amazing experience. Having a good guide makes a big difference in enjoying the trip. My guide Malik Asif Khan really helped me understand the monuments in detail as well as help skip the long queues. He also took me to a nice restaurant for Muglai food. The handy crafts shops enabled me to buy nice gifts for loved ones.

Sunny and our driver were fantastic to spend the day with! Sunny is very knowledgeable and I learned so much about the agra fort and the Taj Mahal! He also recommended a great place for lunch. He was super helpful and I would definitely take another tour with him. He is a superstar and if I could give him six stars, I would!

Aman was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable and great at helping us get the best pictures of the Taj Mahal. We also enjoyed the Agra Fort. I highly recommend doing the sunrise tour. It’s an early start but it really helps beat the heat and the crowd. Our driver arrived on time and drove us safely.

Excellent tour with Aman, very knowledgeable about the Taj and the Fort. Worth getting up early to see the Taj at sunrise without crowds. Would thoroughly recommend Aman as a guide.

I love everything about the tour, thanks to Jahoor and the Guide everything was seamless.
