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!

Vinny was a great tour guide. He provided historical information, took great photos of us, and made us feel like VIPs getting through the lines and crowds efficiently. Additionally, he helped one of our group members when she was struggling with the oppressive heat by taking great care of her. Outstanding!

Aman was our guide for the Agra Fort and Taj Mahal sunrise tour and he was amazing. Took the time to explain everything and also take lots of pictures which was one of our requests. We have traveled far for this wonder and wanted to remember it. Thank you Aman.

Truly a wonderful day - both the driver and the guide were brilliant! Ensured we moved at a pace that worked for us, made sure we were comfortable, explained the history in great detail! Highly recommend!

I had an excellent time with the driver and my guide
