It was an amazing experience. Having a good guide makes a big difference in enjoying the trip. My guide Malik Asif Khan really helped me understand the monuments in detail as well as help skip the long queues. He also took me to a nice restaurant for Muglai food. The handy crafts shops enabled me to buy nice gifts for loved ones.

Aman was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable and great at helping us get the best pictures of the Taj Mahal. We also enjoyed the Agra Fort. I highly recommend doing the sunrise tour. It’s an early start but it really helps beat the heat and the crowd. Our driver arrived on time and drove us safely.

It was a fantastic day, and Ramesh was so knowledgeable and Bobby was a great driver! We fit so much in and I learned so much. Would absolutely take another tour with these guys! Thank you so much!
