A great excursion from start to finish! The contact confirms the details of the support the day before by whatsapp. The driver arrived at the scheduled time directly at our hotel and offered us fresh water all day (included). The guide was excellent and made getting around the taj mahal and red fort much easier. He also improvised as a photographer by offering us the best possible spots and poses around the monuments. Stops at a traditional carpet maker, a marble-cutting craftsman, and a gemstone shop are also offered. A stop on the outward and return journey in the middle of the journey (3h30) will allow you to refresh yourself. In summary, a very good experience that I recommend to everyone!

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.

Vinny was a great tour guide. He provided historical information, took great photos of us, and made us feel like VIPs getting through the lines and crowds efficiently. Additionally, he helped one of our group members when she was struggling with the oppressive heat by taking great care of her. Outstanding!
