    The entire day was magical. Our guide, Hilal, and driver, Hariom, met us at the train station and took us on a fabulous tour of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Not only is Hilal extremely informative (25 yearโ€™s experience), he also is a vey accomplished photographer! My wife and I count this as one of our best days ever. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I did this trip with guide Naeem Zama in Agra. He was excellent! He knows so much about Agra and the Taj Mahal. He also knows many tricks with the camera. He will take videos, photos, cinematic videos, slow mo with your own cell phone/camera. Whatever you like. He will record your experience for you. And you learn at the same time about it. Overall very neat experience. He is also a very genuine good person and takes pride in his work. I have amazing photos and memories of Agra thanks to him!

    Didnt actually go by rail, but by car. Hilal was my tour guide and is pretty good at suggesting places and angles to take photos. I enjoyed his narration of the Taj and the Fort.

    Hilal was a superb guide. He was very knowledgeable of Agra and the history of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He also took very nice photos which is a bonus! He is very friendly and made sure that I was comfortable during the trip. I appreciated Agra more because of the tour. I highly recommend Hilal.
