I was very hesitant & nervous to book a tour as a solo female traveler but took the leap & I’m so glad I did!!! Right after I booked online, the time and location were confirmed within an hour. On the day of the tour, the driver was friendly and the car was clean and comfortable. We then picked up my tour guide Ashik & he was just amazing! He made this tour even better than I expected. He knew all the best photo locations & took a ton of great photos. He shared some very interesting facts too. We ended the day at a local restaurant where I got to try some authentic local cuisine. I HIGHLY recommend this tour and Ashik!

The tour was exceptionally well executed: the taxi pick up and drop offs were seamless, walked to specific train and guided to our train seats. Guide was charming, attentive, and informative. Taken to a very good Indian restaurant (which was not included in price). Enjoyed visiting Baby Taj, and skipped walking into Fort, as I had been there before. Feedback was given to tour agency: provide box lunches from better catering company and skip the train food. Really not appetizing. You might want to bring your own food.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and approachable. We would recommend him to other travellers. Our driver was exceptional. My only disappointment was that the Tarj Mahal tour was described as a sunrise tour so we expected to see the sunrise over the Tarj however, by the time we arrived the sun was already up?

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 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.
We did the Golden Triangle 6-day-tour. The driver and the guides in Agra and Jaipur were exceptional. The guide in New Delhi was not as good as the other two. Maybe, something to be improved is the selection of the restaurants where they took us for lunch. They were good, the food was good, but even the price was not expensive, it was double or triple the price comparing to other restaurants we stopped by for a break, in which we saw Indian people eating, not only foreigners tourists. We’d recommend totally the agency to friends and family.
I had a great time! Both, the Driver, Ajay and tour Guide, Arif, were really good and supportive. Arif had excellent knowledge about Agra history and also helped me taking great pics! - he knows all the good spots for shooting =) Ajay was very kind and also shared a lot of interesting information Regarding Indian culture. Drove safely all the trip which is quite long.
We had Ajay Singh as our driver and Ricky as our guide. both were knowledgeable about India and Taj Mahal. Ricky knows all the best photo spots. He also met our special request to take photos on a boat. All in all a great experience. I could have done without the marble store visit at the end but I get this is par for the course on many of these types of toursn
AJAY SINGH and ARIF are the best guide ever. We had a great time,thanks to you. They treated us very well. I am very grateful to you.
