Spent a great day visiting the Taj Mahal & the Baby Taj with friends. Vishal Garg, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the Taj’s history and it’s surroundings, and explained everything so clearly. He was organised, funny, and charismatic. Our driver was punctual, drove safely, and navigated the busy roads very carefully. We were also provided with lots of bottles of water to keep us well-hydrated throughout the very hot day. We booked first class tickets on the train and would highly recommend for others to do the same. It was very comfortable and the AC worked very well (maybe a little too well as it was a bit chilly on board). We got snacks in the morning - banana, biscuits, tea - and in the evening - juice, tea, biscuits, nuts, and some pasta dinner we didn’t eat just to be on the safe side. We stopped for lunch at an Indian restaurant (highly recommend the garlic naan) and for a coffee at a Costa Cafe before getting the train back to Delhi. Wonderful tour!

The driver (Ashok)arrived on time, even earlier I would say and it was perfect for us. Normally the pick up time was at 02:30 am and he was there around 02:10am which is appreciated. And he welcomed us with a small mala (garland) each, it was cute . A very kind driver and recommandable. As we arrived at the Agra city, he picked up our guide(Manoj) on the way to Tajmahal. Another kind, excellent, sportive and energetic person, who explained us the history for each and every monument. Showed us best photo locations, helped us click photos and experience some ancient features as well. This made us want to know more about the history of tajmahal. Most appreciated and made us comfortable Perfect service, we would recommend

this tour was magical and full of history, love and masterpieces, the beauty of Taj Majal is not to br forgotten and our driver and guide were to the upmost kindness ever

Highly highly recommend! Everything from the car pick up to the tour guide exceeded our expectations. There wasn’t anything we would change even in the 107*F heat.

I had an excellent time with the driver and my guide
