The organisation for our trip was fantastic. We were booked at the same time as Holi Festival which meant the monuments were closed on one of the days. Our driver and guide reorganised the itinerary which meant we could participate in the festival as well as see the amazing sights.

Taste a freshly prepared lunch in 5 star surroundings. After Lunch, visit the Baby Taj an exquisite tomb constructed centuries ago.

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!
In the early morning at 6:30 AM, the driver will receive you and head towards Agra. On the way to Agra, stop at Fatehpur Sikri, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1986. Upon arrival in Agra, head towards the magical allure of the Taj Mahal. Words can’t justify its beauty and you’ve got to see it for yourself. This is what draws tourists to Agra like moths to a wondrous flame. Despite the hype, it’s every bit as good as you’ve heard. Enjoy a guided tour of the other spectacular sights of Agra. Then, drive to Agra Fort (Red Fort). Spread over a sprawling 94 acres, this massive red sandstone fort lies parallel to the Yamuna River and is situated 2 kilometers northwest of the Taj Mahal. The Agra Fort (Red Fort) was originally occupied by Sikarwar Rajputs and was later captured by the Lodi rulers of Delhi. In 1526, after the Lodi’s were defeated in the Battle of Panipat, the ...
I had a very nice experience, the Taj Mahal is really beautiful also the companys driver Nurdreen was a very good and polite driver, knowing all the places and easily adapted to my needs
After pickup from your Delhi hotel at 6:00 or 7:00 AM (or at around 2:30 AM for the sunrise option) your driver will take you to Agra for your exploration of the Taj Mahal. If you've booked an option with a guide, your guide will meet you in Agra. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal is a must-see destination for all tourists. The magnificent monument, which was built between 1631 and 1653, is a shrine to the wife of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who died during the birth of their 14th child. A standing symbol of true love, this building is a sight to behold. This monument is especially spectacular at sunrise, before too many tourists have arrived. Move on to the Agra Fort, another UNESCO World Heritage site, from which the country was once governed. Enjoy lunch at an authentic Indian restaurant and sample the local cuisine before visiting some marble inlay work, an...
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.
Start with pickup by private vehicle from New Delhi between 2:00 AM and 3:00 AM. Travel for 3-4 hours to reach the city of Agra. Meet your guide at the Taj Mahal, who will escort you throughout the day. Discover this world-renowned structure in the early-morning, away from the heat and crowds of the daytime. Admire the stunning sight of the sun's rays illuminating the ivory-colored mausoleum. Learn about the construction of the site from your guide, and enjoy as much time as you want at the site.

Known for its striking red color, this fort was the main residence for the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty. Enjoy a break for lunch, at your own expense. Your guide can provide plenty of reco...

I booked the trip very last min, just the night before the trip but I am glad I chose the company. Both the guides of Agra and Delhi - Karan and Ankur are very professional and knowledgable. They provided excellent hospitality and service throughout the whole Trips and met our special requests. And most important they didn’t mind taking lots of good pictures for you. Also, I also want to thank the driver, who had been professional during the long hours drive and on time on both days. I think this is the tour that you will not regret to choose. The only drawback I can think of is to install a sun filter on the windows of passenger seats as it was very shiny when back to Delhi.
Well presented tour operator. Professional and easy to deal with. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and made sure I was always safe, comfortable and went above and beyond to ensure my trip was memorable. The drivers were also good at navigating the infamous traffic India is known for with ease. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
