The whole private tour was amazing! We were picked up by Alauddin from our hotel straight to Mopa Airport. We boarded our flight to Delhi, where we were driven to a 5-star hotel (Crystal Sarovar Premier) in Agra by KP Singh. We were taken to Haveli restaurant where we had a buffet dinner.
The next day, our guide Arun met us in the lobby and guided us through the Taj Mahal. Arun has been doing this for 20yrs (& the photos he took for us are amazing) and shared so much history with us. We went to the Baby Taj and Agra Fort as well. For authentic souvenirs, we went to specialty shops to see how carpets with precious gemstones are made by hand, marble with precious stones shaped to different designs by master craftsmen, and rugs of the highest quality, all to showcase the traditional aspects of India and the city of Agra. At the end of our tour, KP drove us back to Delhi airport and boarded our flight back to Goa. Alauddin met us at the Dabolim airport and took us back to our hotel.
Overall, the entire tour experience was amazing, the earlier you go, the better the views of Taj Mahal. Thank you Hemender, Alauddin, KP, and Arun for making our trip to Agra a very special experience!
