It was an amazing experience. Having a good guide makes a big difference in enjoying the trip. My guide Malik Asif Khan really helped me understand the monuments in detail as well as help skip the long queues. He also took me to a nice restaurant for Muglai food. The handy crafts shops enabled me to buy nice gifts for loved ones.

Vinny was a great tour guide. He provided historical information, took great photos of us, and made us feel like VIPs getting through the lines and crowds efficiently. Additionally, he helped one of our group members when she was struggling with the oppressive heat by taking great care of her. Outstanding!

Aman was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable and great at helping us get the best pictures of the Taj Mahal. We also enjoyed the Agra Fort. I highly recommend doing the sunrise tour. It’s an early start but it really helps beat the heat and the crowd. Our driver arrived on time and drove us safely.

Excellent tour with Aman, very knowledgeable about the Taj and the Fort. Worth getting up early to see the Taj at sunrise without crowds. Would thoroughly recommend Aman as a guide.

I love everything about the tour, thanks to Jahoor and the Guide everything was seamless.
