Great day with Amir as our local guide (English tour). We were the only ones in this tour. He gave us complete explanations and took great pictures at the Taj (he knows the spots)! He was open to change the schedule and even accompanied us to shop souvenirs. The train in second class was comfy and both him and the driver constantly looked after us. Recommend experience since moving around on your own is not that easy. Thank you Amir!

Amir was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and gave a fantastic tour of the Taj and the surrounding area. He was willing to entertain all my repeated questioning. Sanjay was a great driver navigating the crazy streets and always had a cold bottle of water waiting after each stop. As a solo traveler I felt very safe and was needed to navigate Agra. I would highly recommend this tour!

The tour is very well organized, punctual and aware of everything. Our guide, Aman, amazing. He speaks perfect English, flexible with everything, pleasant explanation of all the places we have been, attentive and close. It was quite hot and he even brought us cold water at all times. Without a doubt, if I came back, it would be with the same agency and especially with the same guide!

Faizal was our guide for Taj Mahal and he guided us very well all the way from railway station to the monument - he brought us in a taxi, then an electric vehicle to go to the Mahal and back. He talks politely and he’s very friendly guide. Definitely recommend him !

Very nice excursion to Agra with a visit to the Taj Mahal in the company of our guide Vishal, who gave us all the necessary explanations and took some very nice photos.
