Spent a great day visiting the Taj Mahal & the Baby Taj with friends. Vishal Garg, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the Taj’s history and it’s surroundings, and explained everything so clearly. He was organised, funny, and charismatic. Our driver was punctual, drove safely, and navigated the busy roads very carefully. We were also provided with lots of bottles of water to keep us well-hydrated throughout the very hot day. We booked first class tickets on the train and would highly recommend for others to do the same. It was very comfortable and the AC worked very well (maybe a little too well as it was a bit chilly on board). We got snacks in the morning - banana, biscuits, tea - and in the evening - juice, tea, biscuits, nuts, and some pasta dinner we didn’t eat just to be on the safe side. We stopped for lunch at an Indian restaurant (highly recommend the garlic naan) and for a coffee at a Costa Cafe before getting the train back to Delhi. Wonderful tour!

The tour was perfectly organized. At no time were there any delays or problems. The train ride on the Gatimaan Express was great. When we arrived in Agra, we were welcomed by our German-speaking tour guide. This was followed by a visit to the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort, which were impressive. The very personable tour guide provided us with all the information so that we felt transported back to the time when these monuments were erected. In the evening it went back smoothly again. It was a long but amazing day. Thanks a lot for this!

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.
