    Hussain was an excellent tour guide. He made the tours - especially the Taj Mahal - into a show of storytelling. My favorite part is how he first has you gaze upon the Taj. What a treat!!!

    The trip took much longer each way than the provider indicated. The driver stopped a few times for no discernible reason. Once there, the guide was checking his phone constantly and generally seemed bored or disinterested. The lunch was bland with a poor selection and quality, and the logistics were so bad we didn't see all of the sites promised and still arrived back later.

    High praise to our tour guide Mr. Hussain. He offered my daughter and me a perfect tour of the Taj and the Agra Fort.

    We looked for a tour that did *not* include shopping and we were pleased that none was offered. The lunch buffet was very good.

    Our driver was prompt, however the vehicle was less than perfectly comfortable for the long drive. Nevertheless, a five-star review for the day is in order.

    This tour was excellent! Our guide was Amit Datta, he was very interesting and enthusiastic about showing us the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort.So very memorable.

    Courteous driver; punctuality; the tour manager (Ashish) were all good. Only issue was the small car sent for the trip - quite uncomfortable for long drives.

    Great tour to an architectural wonder of the world. Driver Ashish was fantastic. He drove safely, comfortably and very professionally. Made sure plenty of cool water was available and also rest stops if required. Guide Bipul was very knowledgeable and helped guide through Taj Mahal and Agra Fort and its history. A very enjoyable trip.

    Gets Holidays is an amazing tour company with a very professional and customer oriented staff. Prior to my trip, their staff provided me the contact details of my driver, Ashish and confirmed the pickup time and location. Separately, their Guest Relationship Manager, Mokshada reached out to me via Whatsapp as an alternate contact, should there by any issues during the trip. Ashish arrived on time at the hotel, and was an excellent companion, speaking good English and providing good conversation throughout the drive to Agra and back. We made a stop prior to reaching Agra, and he provided me ample time to explore shops. In Agra, we met with our Tour Guide Hussain, who provided excellent insights on the history of the Taj Mahal and its builders, as well as Agra Fort and those who lived there. It had been a good idea to book a tour guide for the trip, because it enabled a better appreciation of the places - beyond just taking pictures - to hear how these structures had been important in the lives of the people of the past, and even those present today. Because it was the middle summer, Ashish made sure that he had plenty of drinking water, keeping an icebox in his trunk. This came in handy especially towards noon, when the temperature became unbearable. A buffet lunch was included at the end of the tour, and the choice of restaurant - Pinch of Spice - was excellent, There were plenty of different Indian dishes to try, and it was a good place to wind down before the drive back. We got back to the city just in time before the evening rush hour. Mokshada also called while we were on our way back to ensure that everything was well. Overall, it was a very memorable experience. I am looking to seeing more of India, and contact Gets Holidays should I get the chance.

    this was a good purchase. very informative and very safe. the driver was great and the tour guide was knowledgeable. tip generously because these men deserve it.

  • 28-May-2018

    This was a MUST do. It was perfect to get a private guide to take you to all the great locations. While in Agra I highly recommend you stop at the Fort. Mr. Hussain was our guide and he had so much knowledge and delivered it in a way that was easy to understand and was a great storyteller.

  • 23-May-2018

    Very nice tour, the tour includes the pick-up and drop-off from/to hotel, lunch and the all entrance fee. Our tour guide did not explain alot of the story of Taj Mahal, instead, he let us wonder around Taj Mahal freely and tell us to take our time to enjoy/experience Taj Mahal. It might be not suitable for people who like to know and to learn about Taj Mahal.
