I thoroughly enjoyed my sunrise Taj Mahal tour. I opted for the driver only option, which worked out very well as I was quite happy to walk around alone at my own pace. I was picked up from my hotel in Delhi at 2:30am and we drove 3 hours to Agra. My driver Mr Harbans was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable in the car. He also told me some information about Delhi, the taj, the red fort, and other things along the road which was interesting. But he was also happy to give me some peace and let me sleep along the way! We made a toilet stop on the journey where there was a few little food places and shops so that was nice to stretch my legs. It was incredible to see the sunrise at the Taj Mahal, a true moment which made me speechless! So it made the early rise well worth it! The red fort was also very beautiful to look around and the view of the taj from there was great. The booking process was very easy.
Private car, driver and guide was absolutely great. I unfortunately lost the name of our driver but he was very nice and kind. Took us to breakfast before the long 3.5 hours to Agra. Once in Agra we picked up our guide Akil who was fantastic. Showed us all around the Taj, baby Taj and the Agra Fort. Lunch was at a great restaurant. Overall a great value for the $ and we tipped well! Definitely worth a day trip so I recommend making the time!
We covered all the locations as advertised by the tour. The driver was punctual at all times, very polite and the car clean. The ride on a Sunday was smooth. We were given the chance to skip the shopping of souvenirs, which was also appreciated. The guide was very experienced and adapted well to our rhythm. He took great care of us and helped us navigate the crowd. He went slow or faster as and when required.
It was a great tour, just what I wanted. A good combination of sightseeing and just walking through the streets and getting to know day-to-day life of old Delhi's inhabitants and traders. Great lunch break. Lovely and accommodating guide Akansha, knowledgable and passionate about her city and country. A great tour with a great guide.
Driver was very punctual, lovely helpful guy and an excellent experienced driver - we were in safe hands. Our guide Rajesh was very friendly and knowledgeable and also a great photographer! We were picked up at our hotel in Delhi at 8am and dropped off about 9:30pm Would definitely recommend
