    My husband and I had an extra day in Delhi and this tour was great! It was a bit of an early start for us but we had a great driver (K K) and great tour guide (Rocky). K K was very patient with us throughout the day and attentive. Our guide Rocky was very knowledgeable and detailed during the tour. He was also easy to talk to. There was no language barrier and easy to understand each other. We had breakfast at a lovely hotel; food was great. Overall this was a great experience and worth the money paid!

    My wife and I did the sunrise tour with Praveen (Rocky) as our guide and KK Sharma as our driver. We ran late in the morning and KK was very understanding and made sure to make up time so we could make it from Delhi to Agra in time for the sunrise. Praveen is very knowledgeable about the Taj Mahal and the fort. You can tell he is really passionate about what he does. He also makes sure you have skip the line access to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He also, is very willing to take pictures of you in great locations. We did the breakfast option and there was a good variety and the Trident Hotel was very clean/hospitable. Heads up though, the shop keepers at the stores you go to will say they are not pressuring you to buy but they will continuously try to to you. If this happens and you can’t get out of it, let Praveen know or give him a signal and he’ll end the interaction. This is common in almost any country/ tour but it’s good to know the tour guide will step in. All in all, I would book with Praveen again.

    Praveen (Rocky) was the best tour guide and clearly has a great reputation with the on-site staff at the Taj Mahal. We toured with ease, learned an appropriate amount about the history, had some alone time to walk, opportunities to eat, rest and shop. Rocky directed us to all the best places for photos at the Taj Mahal.

    Praveen (Rocky) was a fantastic host. He guided us expertly through sunrise at the Taj Mahal. He shared the history, pointing out the intricacies of one of the “modern” Seven Wonders of the World. He took us to the best photo spots and took our pictures. Afterwards, we went for breakfast and to all the best shopping spots. Wonderful!

    Starting with our driver, Ravi, who was pleasant, courteous, ten minutes early! and overall amazing company, we had the most fantastic trip to the Taj Mahal and Fort Agra. It's useless to describe the Taj Mahal, words and photos don't do it justice. If you're on the fence about visiting, hopefully we can tip you forward by saying that it's a genuinely awe-inspiring experience. Our guide was knowledgable and fun, and our time left to ourselves to explore was definitely a highlight of the whole trip. The ride back to Delhi was made fantastically enjoyable and informative thanks to our driver, Ravi, who couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. If it's an option, be sure to ask for Ravi!

    We’re on our way back from an amazing sunrise trip from Delhi to Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. What a fantastic day, I couldn’t recommend it more. Our driver Prem picked us up from the hotel right on time, the car was clean and with safety belts and Prem drives very well so no need to be nervous. He stopped so we could have some yummy chai tea and made us laugh out loud a couple of times! Taj Mahal was incredibly beautiful and it is easy to see why this is a tourist destination. I would not miss it for the world. Our guide Rajesh comes from Agra and could tell us all about Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, answer all our questions and take our photos. Such a good guy. After the tour we asked to be taken to a shop that sells sarees as we are going to a wedding tomorrow, and I want to especially thank Prem who spent probably an hour patiently waiting for us to find the dresses we were looking for. Warmly recommend this trip to anyone. Worth every penny and you’ll be in safe hands.

    We were picked up from our Delhi Hotel @ approx 0220 and arrived in Agra at 0600 prompt safely driven to our destination by our extremely nice driver Ravi. We met our guide Suvhash Sharme at the Howard Plaza hotel where we took a short drive to the entrance of the Taj Mahal. We were at the front of the queue which allowed us quick entry when the gates opened at 06.45. After seeing the magnificent Taj Mahal we went back to the Howard Plaza for breakfast. After this we headed to the Agra Fort and after a short break we made the journey back to Delhi. A wonderful experience made all the better thanks to The professionalism of Ravi and Suvhash.
