What people are saying about New Delhi
English: We booked the tour on very short notice since we won a day off in Delhi by coincidence. Although it was very late to book, all went absolutely perfect. The Company was in immediate Contact, did all bookings for the monument fees and the driver arrived soon and his drivimg was supersafe and very, very friendly. The guide we had was very motivated and took very good care of us. To make a long story short: Thumbs up! Safe Honest Knowledgeable Motivated Next time im Delhi, we use the same Company for going to TajMahal. Anytime again! Thank you!
December 2019 - Janu and his driver were amazing! Everything was organized nicely for us. A great train ride down and back and made sure we were safe and taken care of. The sights we saw were pretty good, although I didn't feel like we needed much time at the fruit and veggie market, but that was OK and they were fairly flexible. I would definitely book Janu again as it was a great and safe experience! Recommended!
Md Rafiq was our tour guide, he was just outstanding and shared all information about Taj Mahal. Being a local guy from Agra he was able to give us in-depth details and was very polite and approachable for any questions.
Although we booked a late start at 11 am, the guide managed to make the most of our time, and still made it to the most famous points of attraction of the city. Next time we do the rest. Depart before 9 am.
Perfectly organized, friendly driver. Ask for Faizal to be your guide.
