What people are saying about New Delhi

Moin (organiser/manager)- he was very professional and helped in me in so many ways. He responded all my questions in timely manner. Rajuddin (driver)- he was very polite and respectful. We had a quick break for a masala tea. It was nice! Rafeek (tour guide)- he was very professional, well spoken and knowledgeable. He looked after me in every way ie from getting through the gate, protecting me from unwanted attention from locals. He was also my photographer which I really appreciate it! Overall- I highly recommend to anyone especially a solo traveller. I fell safe and well taken care of during my trip to Taj Mahal. We stopped at Marriott hotel for lunch buffet with a reasonable price. Otherwise you can always choose other places/restaurants.

Overall, I had a good trip to Agrar and would recommend the tour. Pick-up and ride went smoothly, although the drive is quite long and quite adventurous at times. My tour guide was Indian and spoke perfect German. He was really nice and funny and took a lot of pictures from me in front of the most beautiful spots. As I did not have reception on the way to the Taj, he offered to buy the tickets for me online and I reimbursed him later in cash without any mark-ups. Breakfast at the hotel was good and not too expensive. However, the overall tour is comparatively expensive. Including tickets and breakfast, I paid around 130 euros.

Absolutely fantastic experience start to finish! Imran is incredibly knowledgeable, taught me a lot about the Taj Mahal and had lots of ideas for photographs, which he was happy to take for me. Pick up from my hotel in Delhi was smooth and comfortable; the driver even stopped along the way so we could try masala chai. Breakfast after the tour was delicious too with plenty of Indian delicacies and continental favourites to choose from. As a solo female traveller, I had reservations about what I would be able to do on my own but I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Thank you so much

This trip to Agra was much better than expected. Rafeeq was a very professional and attentive guide, who explained us very details about history, architecture, materials, and trivials of Taj Mahal as a local. He was very keen on helping us take great photos too. The tour started early in the morning to catch sunrise and avoid the crowded queue, which was totally worth it. Highly recommended.

We had very good experience in this excursion. Sonu was very punctual to pick us up at the hotel and drove us to Agra. Kashif guided us visiting the monuments provided us with tons of info and history about them. Fully recommended.
