I booked the trip very last min, just the night before the trip but I am glad I chose the company. Both the guides of Agra and Delhi - Karan and Ankur are very professional and knowledgable. They provided excellent hospitality and service throughout the whole Trips and met our special requests. And most important they didn’t mind taking lots of good pictures for you. Also, I also want to thank the driver, who had been professional during the long hours drive and on time on both days. I think this is the tour that you will not regret to choose. The only drawback I can think of is to install a sun filter on the windows of passenger seats as it was very shiny when back to Delhi.

We had a great tour, everything was nicely planned. Our guides provided us with interesting insights and the drivers were also very helpful and reliable. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Ankur from keeper landwey was a great guide, entertaining and made the Taj Mahal tour very enjoyable. As a solo woman traveler, I felt safe and comfortable throughout

Riyaz the guide is really knowledgeable with good storytelling skills. He takes excellent pictures and is very friendly. Vikas the driver drives well and safely.

I had an excellent experience with this tour, both driver and guides in Delhi and Agra were very professional and helpful. Would recommend it for sure!
