Yo recomiendo mucho este tour, lo disfrutamos muchísimo, tanto que volvería tomarlo. Nuestro conductor Rajish una persona muy amable, interesante y además un muy buen conductor con mas de 25 años de experiencia manejando por todo India y nuestra guía de turistas Afreen fue increíble conocía detalles muy interesantes sobre el Taj Mahal y El Fuerte de Agra, era amable, paciente, nos ayudó con todas las dudas que teníamos, se sabe los mejores trucos para poder disfrutar de las atracciones sin sufrir todas la multitudes, hasta los mejores spots para tomar fotografías y además habla muy buen Español . Nuestra recomendación es que paguen las entradas por adelantado, nosotros lo hicimos y todo fluyó excelente. La artesanía que producen en Agra es muy bonita, fuimos a ver talleres de creación de tapetes y de incrustación de piedras muy bonitos.

The trip was nice. We were very impressed by Taj Mahal and also Fort is really beautiful. Our driver was professional and we felt safe during the trip. Car was clean and AC was working fine. Guide Abdul was good, he explained details about Agra and answered on our questions. Also he helped with finding spots for photos. The only thing which we did't like was a huge push on tips. We've already paid high amount of money for the trip and it was expected that we will give additional tips... Foreign Tourists are paying few times more for everything in India so asking for tips is really rude. We've been on multiple trips but we've never experienced something like this.

Varun, i.e. Vinny made the experience so much easier that it might have been without him. My daughter and I both agreed we may never have made it past the line to buy a ticket let alone the 2-hour entry line. Vinny also helped negotiate a good deal with a photographer and helped out by taking some stunning pictures with our phones, arranging the tuk tuk ride back to where our driver was parked so we didn't have to walk up narrow crowded lanes. He made the whole experience exceptional allowing us to relax and enjoy this magnificent site that truly deserves its' designation as one of the wonders of the world. And, we learned a lot as well. I would recommend him unconditionally.
