Unbelievable experience
Andrey_K
, Aug 2022
The tour agency hired a freelance guide Farid and he was absolutely incredible. He has a deep knowledge of Agra history and presents it in a very captivating way. He is very polite and accommodating I loved the tour of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The way Farid described how it was used back in 17th century takes you straight to Aladdin! Farid evidently knows some shortcuts, and saved me hours and hours of waiting in line! Also, the lunch place was super delicious. I was expecting chips and coke. We got a premium Indian BBQ buffet! Please be aware that the tour does include visits to a couple of vendors but they were nice, offered me chai tea and were not very pushy Also, the tour offers a photographer for an additional fee. The photographer was a little bit pushy and insisted on charging me for 40 pictures even though only 2-3 were good. The only benefit to having him was the fact that he aggressively chased other tourists away from photo op spots, so they don’t block the view. So my advice would be to bypass the photo op altogether. The train experience is not very fancy, but it is fast and saves you tons of time! Overall it was wonderful. I would not change a thing.

This was the best day trip we have ever done. Everyone was very punctual and our tour guide Asif with salaamat India was very amazing. Not only did he patiently explain to us everything in the sweltering heat, he also took a lot of amazing photographs for us and showed us some amazing marble carving work, embroidery work and jewelry as part of the tour. The two drivers we had in Agra and Delhi also were really patient and amazing. Overall a really positive experience and I would love to recommend Asif to other tour groups looking to visit the Taj Mahal

Perfect tour for solo female travellers
Mathew_L
, Jul 2022
My experience of this tour was brilliant. As a solo female traveller I took a lot of time researching tours that would feel safe every step of the way and this tour did not disappoint. I was picked up on time from my hotel and escorted to my seat on the train. Your seat on the train will be pre-booked for you and I felt safe throughout the journey. My guide was waiting to meet me at my train carriage when I got to Agra so I was never alone. My tour guide, Farid, was wonderful. His knowledge of each of the sites was extensive and he was more than happy to answer any questions I had. He was determined to make sure I had the best day possible and he went out of his way to take some lovely pictures for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Farid and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to other travellers.

I cannot say enough amazing things about this tour! We were unbelievably lucky and grateful to have Farid as our tour guide - not only was he incredibly knowledgeable about the area and monuments, he went well out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. They had a ton of bottled water on hand at all times - which, visiting in July we definitely needed! When I fell ill due to the heat he was very patient and found us a comfortable place to sit until I felt better. We would have been in a much worse place without him! He even took us to a textiles shop and helped us negotiate with the vendor. Lunch was divine - best food I've had so far! Both the train and our driver, Gopal, were comfortable and the process was easy because we were escorted through the train station right to our seats. It was an amazing day and I wouldn't hesitate to book him or this tour again. I would recommend without hesitation to anyone.

The entire experience was well managed from the hotel car pickup, assistance at the rail station and being met by guide in Agra. The guide was very knowledgable and very responsive and helpful with the various stopping points of the experience. The same assistance getting back onto train and car back to hotel went smooth. Great experience by a well managed process by professional staff that knew what they needed to do.

This tour was a phenomenal experience. Top to bottom, every detail was flawless. Our tour guide, Mr. Farid, was the most knowledgeable, professional, kind, and all-around excellent guide I have ever had. Our drivers were safe, helpful, and efficient. The business class train was comfortable and fast. The Taj Mahal was breathtaking, and Mr. Farid seemed to know every single detail about the history and construction of the Taj. The restaurant served delicious, authentic food and the service was superb. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
