We had an excursion from Delhi to Agra with guide Sasha (it’s russian version from Ashfaq) in russian language. We left Delhi at night, the driver picked us up from the hotel and met with the guide already in Agra. Sasha speaks russian very well and knows a lot about Russia, was very polite. We have seen Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, everything was good. And then on the next day after our excursion Sasha helped us very much twice!! We had some problems with booking tickets and taxi from Fatehpur Sikri and Sasha was in touch with us and really helped us out a lot! Thank him a lot for that. And also he adviced us a bar in Agra and it was really great experience and evening. So we were pleased a lot with that excursion!

We had about 6 hours to see Agra, so time was important for us. The driver and our guide Ali met us at the station when we arrived. The activity did not include entry tickets but as a special request to save time Ali bought the tickets to enter Agra and we paid him separately. Ali showed Taj and Agra fort narrating the history very well and also explained local culture. The car provided was very clean and comfortable. Both our driver and guide Ali were very courteous, flexible and professional and dropped us off at the train station in time for us to catch the train in the afternoon to Jaipur. Highly recommend!!

Had a fantastic experience coming from Delhi with my driver Sonu, and a great tour from my guide Shaoib! The beauty of the Taj Mahal at sunrise is like nothing I’ve ever seen - I would truly recommend this. A special thank you to Shaoib who took the time to take photos, provide the knowledge and history of the Taj Mahal, as well as being patient with questions for this American’s first time in India. I’m very appreciative of this experience and look forward to more in the future!

This has been an excellent tour. The whole experience from pick-up at the Delhi airport to transiting to Agra and the Taj Mahal has been perfect. Ali zaif and Chotu have been an amazing guide and driver. Would highly recommend for anyone wishing to see all that Agra has to offer and learn a bit about the history of the Taj Mahal.

Very amazing trip which was totally worth it The pick up was on time and we arrived at Taj Mahal right before sunrise My guide Rafeeq told me a lot of facts and also facts that most of the people don't know. He also took some amazing pictures of which are totally instagramable
