What people are saying about Noida
Highly recommend the sunrise tour in order to beat the crowds and the heat! The driver arrived at the hotel early (2:45am) and we started the 3.5 hr journey. I was able to sleep some. I met my guide, Umer, and right away he prepared me well for the ‘entrance check’. He was very knowledgeable and customized my experience to my liking ( I like the history, not just pictures!). Umer was very polite and cook several great pictures for me. My only disappointment is with the Indian government and how they maintain the Taj Mahal property.... none of the reflection pools were filled/ operational, what a shame. The tour of Agra Fort was quick... could almost do without this part of the tour. We were done by 9:30 am and started the journey back to Delhi. Overall a good trip. I recommend if the Taj Mahal is on your bucket list.
Our driver was very punctual and picked us up from our hotel right on time. He was a very skilled driver and we had a very comfortable trip from Delhi to Agra. Our English speaking guide was waiting to meet us when we reached Agra. He spoke English fluently and was very well informed about the history and architecture of both the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Our guide presented this information in a very interesting way by telling us about the lives of the people who were connected with these two monuments. He invited us to ask questions during our tour and answered all of our questions fully. We all learnt a lot! We were all glad that we had the opportunity to pre-purchase our tickets. Our visit was very well organised, very Interesting and enjoyable.
I had amazing service the entire trip. Hira, my driver, was a gentle and safe driver, allowing me to catch up on some sleep after my international flights while driving me to the Taj Mahal. He also provide good conversation and tea. My guide Aman was very charismatic and knowledgeable about the sites. He took several outstanding photos of me along the way. He made sure to point out all the most important details of the sites while also adding in his own we expert opinion. Very experienced and thoughtful staff all around. Would highly recommend.
Aman was a wonderful guide! He gave us a lot of history about the Taj Mahal and guides us through the best way to experience the Taj Mahal. Next he asked us our preference on visiting baby Taj or Fort Agra. We chose the baby Taj and were not disappointed! It's beautiful as well. And Aman took fantastic photos of us in the best spots. After visiting, we saw how the the semiprecious gemstones were inlayed in the white marble. The entire day was a great learning opportunity and a splendid day of seeing a wonder of the world.
We made the sunrise tour. Walking up at 2 AM to leave for the tour at 3 AM was a bit of a challenge. But we wouldn't have missed it, it was an incredible tour. Our guide, Mister Javed Ahmed, wasn't only our perfect English speaking guide, he was also our private fotographer... We had a great time with Javed, he was really involved and could tell us everything about the history and the reconstruction of the Taj Mahal. We are amazed about his knowledge... We enjoyed Javed's company and wish him al the best.
