Ohhh!!! This tour was brilliant!! Farid was my guide and Gopal was my driver, and they went out of their way to make the day the most fantastic experience! I wondered in the back of my mind beforehand if the tour might be a bit too long, but, no!! The hours flew by, and I was sad when it all ended! From the traditional Agra greeting at the train station with a garland of flowers to the extra refreshments for the train ride home, I have to say my every need was catered to. Farid knows his stuff, and there are many surprising architectural secrets in both the Taj Mahal and Fort Agra that I would have never known about, startling optical illusions (really!!), and made the trip extra special! Lunch was also fantastic—I had to forget my small portions diet as everything was so delicious! It was exceptional value for money, too, as I was taken through all the VIP express lines to avoid all the crowds. Highly recommended, and be sure to ask for Farid and Gopal to ensure you have a great time!!

Dear Mr. Gerald Thank you so much for sparing your valuable time and sharing your kind feedback wrapped so beautifully, and thank you for recommending us. We find ourselves lucky for the customers like you..... We truly believe that professionalism and discipline goes hand in hand and Farid and gopal know their role so well and we fully agree with you about Farid that no doubt Farid is the most colorful feather in our hat who doesn't stop himself from going that extra mile to serve our every single guest. We personally recommend this train tour because it's fast and provides you with ample time to explore the city. The place where you had lunch is one of the most popular and most hygienic places to have lunch in Agra...... Offering garland is an act of respect therefore we always try to humble ourselves to give the same sort of reverence to one another......Once again we thank you for all your kind words. We look forward to serving you soon. Till then please take good care of yourself. Regards Salamat

Ali (our driver in Agra) and Akil (our tour guide) we’re experts in logistics and adaptability. They have the system down to a tee. To illustrate each leg of the trip:

1. A driver texts his contact information the night before.
2. The driver arrives on time and texts his arrival. He’ll greet you outside the hotel entrance in person and bring you to the car
3. The driver will park at the train station and walk you through the platform and to your seat.
4. The next driver will knock on your train seat window when you arrive and greet you when you emerge from the train. He will bring you to the car; then he’ll pick up the tour guide and drop you at the destination.
5. The tour guide will walk with you and show his expertise on the history of the location. He will also offer to take photos with your phone during key moments. He will then escort you back to the driver. The driver will offer you small chilled beverages on every return.

I didn’t really have to worry at all!

We were draped in garlands as soon as we got of the train in Agra and that set the mood for the whole day. Farid the travel guide and his driver Ali were beyond amazing. Farid's passion for the Taj Mahal rubbed onto us and we found ourselves in the life and personality of Shah Jehan. He would point out the smallest details in Taj Mahal that we would have never even noticed had we gone alone. I will not in include any spoilers.

The restaurant we went to had great food and what appeared to be unlimited supply of curries. We were able to shop for marble tables at the end and that was the icing on the cake.

On both ends Delhi and Agra we were accompanied until the train arrived which made us feel safe.

Glad we got to discover the Taj Mahal with Farid.

This tour was truly amazing, we've had such a great time exploring the city of Agra and mainly Taj Mahal which is mind blowing. Our tour guide Malik Asif made the whole experience 10× better as he took us through the great history behind Taj Mahal and Agra fort which is so fascinating and he was very nice and helped us take amazing photos throughout the day. I would completely recommend this tour and I can guarantee you won't regret it especially if you are with Mr Asif.

Probably the best way to see the Taj and Red Fort. Our driver in Delhi ensured we got o the right train and carriage in Delhi (Which is not obvious) and was waiting outside the carriage when we returned to take us back to our hotel.
Farid our guide in Agra is great well spoken and very knowledgable. He also met us as we alighted from the train and escorted us through the throngs of people inside and outside of the stattion.
The buffet lunch was fantastic and overwhelming in variety and quantity.
And of course the Taj itself is a sight that must be seen wth your own eyes, no photo can do it justice.

Let me tell you… this was the best decision of our whole trip. Even before the tour, the agency kept me informed and Salazar even worked with me when I made a mistake on my booking (I recommend having WhatsApp for communication). Everything was pre arranged and well-organized. We didn’t have to figure out trains or deal with the queues at the Taj, and our tour guide, Farid, was amazing. He was informative but not overbearing or pushy. He knew all the best photo spots and made sure we got the good shots, plus we enjoyed his company at lunch. I know it’s a bit pricier than other tours, but truly I can’t recommend this enough.

Excellent experience with Farid who very diligently guided me through the Taj Mahal and the Agra fort providing me with plenty of valuable information on both sites. Moreover, right after booking, the company established an immediate WhatsApp contact and provided me with all the necessary details for the trip. Pickup at the hotel was very punctual and the driver brought me directly to my seat in the train. No stress, no worries, great support and a worthwhile visit !

We were collected promptly from our Hotel. Our driver helped find our seats in the train at Delhi, and ensured that our tour guide (Farid) knew who he was collecting in Agra.
Farid was exceptional. He had a great sense of humour, and passion in everything he spoke about.
The Taj Mahal was absolutely incredible. It blew us away even more than we thought possible. We spent almost 3 hours there and to be honest, it flew past. We could easily have spent more time there!
Lunch was delicious. A beautiful restaurant serving authentic Indian food.
We then visited Agra Fort, which was also very impressive and beautiful.
Finally we were taken to Baby Taj which was much smaller, but equally pretty.
All in all this is an amazing tour, very good value for money and we would recommend it to anybody travelling to Delhi.

A fabulous day out. Travelled on the Gatiman Express (super alternative to driving). Chauffeured to the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort & Itmad-ud-Daula. Delicious lunch in between and a spot of shopping at Zardouzee before heading back to Dehli. Ali, our driver, was super careful and courteous - always opening doors etc and our guide, Farid, charming and highly knowledgeable about the history of these wonderful buildings. Highly recommend.
