We took the Delhi to Agra one-day trip on March 2nd 2020. The excellent (!) driver Jitender picked us up at our hotel and took us to Agra in a neat and comfortable car. On the way he stopped several times to let us have a quick glance at some landmarks in Delhi - we really enjoyed that! The ride to Agra took about 3 hours in total and we added a quick stop for breakfast and a coffee somewhere along the way. Once we reached Agra we met our guide Arif, who took us to the Taj Mahl, the Agra Fort and a craftsmen demonstration of Indian marble and inlay art. Arif was very energetic and we enjoyed our time with him very much. He took a lot of pictures, knew a lot of good spots to take pics and was very knowledgeable about the sights as well. We had lunch at a pretty fancy place for Indian standards and it was also really delicious! At the craftsman's stop we were not pressured to buy anything, but we just had a look around and listened to the demonstration.
The tour was excellent Ajay our driver was fantastic. He was kind, funny and helpful making sure we got the most from our trip. Our guide was good sharing historical information with us and taking some great photos. At the end of the tour when our guide left we had some spare time so Ajay even drove us to a local market at our request before we left back for Ireland. He really was fantastic, thanks Ajay! If you are in Delhi I 1000% recommend this tour. You see everything worth seeing and can change the tour to suit yourself and it’s upto you if you go into the monuments or not which is great! Thanks guys! Lots of water, and hand sanitizer in the car too
What a fantastic day! We were very pleased to have a female guide. Indu was very knowledgeable and kind and shared some brilliant moments with us. She was very flexible and allowed us time on our own to walk around the sites after giving us the amazing history. Would recommend this tour with Indu! Also recommend the early start as we were at most sights before the crowds. The rickshaw was a highlight! Sanjeev our driver was also excellent, friendly and patient.
We were fortunate to be able to go on a Sunday, with lighter traffic and balmy weather. What I liked most about the experience was the flexibility shown by “Get your guide”, but even more so the flexibility shown by our guide, Sunil Kaneriya. Not only is he knowledgeable, but he gave us options that were off the beaten track and turned out to be really interesting. Our driver, Ali, was also one of the best.
Great experience with Junaid! Highly recommend this tour, especially for single female travelers. I felt super safe and had a much better experience navigating Old Delhi with Junaid. We had a great time at Jama Masjid and since it was a Sunday the market was mostly closed, but still worth the trip! I was even super lost in the beginning and Junaid came and found me.
