Excellent service provided by the Keeper Landwey. I booked the package 24hr in advance and everything went very smoothly. Communication by the activity provider was outstanding throughout the trip. My driver Raju was spot on with his timing and picked me up from the pick up location. When we visited the Taj it was misty foggy but managed to take out some pictures when visibility was slightly better. I can’t thank enough to my guide Gulbahaar , he was very polite and listening , answered any questions without hesitation. There was no pressure for up selling either. I highly recommend for Agrq trips with Zaid and his team. Thank you
