Great day at the Taj and Agra fort! Our guide Cozi Khan was great:) got us the best shots while the sun was coming up then gave us loads of info on both sights. We also saw some extra places like the gem and fabrics shop and the marble crafting facilities.

Good: knowledgable guide, clean and tidy car, and a good driver. Both provided good area knowledge and made the tour worthwhile. Areas to improve: provide guide an entry ticket so clients don’t have to pay for them. Also, I’d request any future guides slow down so the experience isn’t rushed, we completed a lot of monuments in a very short time span. Finally, and although it’s difficult, the language barrier sometimes made it difficult to communicate from both the clients and guides perspectives. This was mentioned during the tour and it did improve.

My tour guide mr Cozy was friendly and knew a lot to tell me. He drove me around for the full day and even made time to see 'baby taj'. The local shops he will take you to see will try to sell you their craft, so be sure not to get carried away because it is really beautiful. Definitely recommend this tour since they show everything worth visiting but keep in mind entrance and food might not be included in the price.
