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.

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 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.

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.

My driver, Ashish Gandhi, picked me up at precisely at 6am, and we drove 3.5 hours to Agra. Ashish was a great driver and fun to chat with. He also let me take a nap when I needed it. We met my guide, Krishna Chand Joshi, in Agra. This was a very efficient tour of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort well coordinated on car pickup, Tuk Tuk use, etc. I had a great lunch at Pinch of Spice, with a fabulous greeter at door with huge mustache. Everyone was so nice. The drive back was smooth. New expressway makes a big difference. Thanks!

Thank you to our driver Ashish and our tour guide Hussain for a wonderful tour of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. We enjoyed the trip thoroughly and would highly recommend it to others. Ashish was a wonderful driver and provided an enjoyable ride from Delhi to Agra with interesting facts and laughs along the way. Hussain provided us with the most wonderful experience during our tours of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, his great knowledge and ability to paint a picture of the past made the tour amazing. He also has wonderful photography skills to make your memories last a life time.

Great tour. The tour guide was amazing. He was very informative and always to assist our group with our needs.

This was a great tour. The Taj Mahal is an incredible experience that is hard to describe. You really need to see it with your own eyes to truly understand how special it is. My tour guide Hussain was fantastic. He was so passionate about India's history and the building itself and very eager to pass on his knowledge. I am a female and was traveling alone and I always felt completely safe. I highly recommend this tour.

Highly recommend this day trip, although it is a big day and be ready for a lot of driving! Pickup from Hotel at 7am with about a 3 hour drive to Agra rest stop included. Driver was prompt, friendly and drove safely. We met our guide in Agra and he was great, gave us lots of information and helped us take really great photos on our phones! dont do the Photographer thing, the guide knows how to take just as good photos! He also gave us some free time to explore the Taj Mahal and grounds by ourselves. The Agra Fort was also really great and well worth the visit. Lunch was quite good and then the guide gave us the option if we wanted to do some shopping or not. We opted not to and it was great that he gave us the option instead of just taking us there without asking. The drive back to Delhi was also fine, just Delhi traffic is really bad, even on a Saturday! But in a city that big, it is to be expected! The only thing that could be better was perhaps an email or call a few days before confirming the pickup time from the hotel as we needed to know what time to be ready. I tried to call the local number a few times on the day before but had no luck. I was finally able to get through in the afternoon and they confirmed the pickup time and then followed with an email. However I would highly recommend this trip, it is well worth it to see the amazing Taj Mahal and Agra Fort when you don't have much time in Delhi. Everything was well organised and went very smoothly.

I really enjoyed this tour. The driver stopped halfway for tea and toilet at a clean place. He answered my questions about curiosities along the way, like the smokestacks are for making bricks, he then showed me the acres of drying bricks. Mr. Gunderfir I believe was his name. Very affable. The guide was also knowledgable about the Taj and the Fort. He was easy to understand and answered my many questions. Also, he know where the best photo taking places were. I was very pleased with the trip and tour.

Excellent tour. whirlwind tour that picked us up at Delhi airport, drove to Agra, toured Taj and Fort. Amazing places. Raj was outstanding, knowledgeable, entertaining. And he got us through some massive lines without waiting. Definitely worth the price and tips. Raj is a very honest guy, let us know how we were going to be approached by photo people, how to decline if we don't want it. I really appreciated the honesty. Our stay was too short. Suggest that one stay overnight in agra to go at a slower pace and enjoy the beauty of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.

Excellent trip from Delhi. Driver was first class throughout the full day explaining things as we drove to and fromAgra. Guide met us in Agra for our Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The Taj Mahal visit left me speechless. Its beauty and the history of it takes your breathe away.Our guide was very informative and took us around at a pace suited to us. Plenty of time allowed for photography although best hiring local photographer for this once in a life time visit to Taj Agra Fort continued our journey from the Taj. Lunch was included and this was of a high standard. Returned to Delhi by 7pm a full 12 hour trip that was definately worth it Highly recommend this tour.

I cannot recommend this tour enough. Really great experience and our guide Hussain was the best! He gave really amazing insights, made the tour around the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort really easy and insightful and was super helpful with some amazing pictures he helped us take. We had a lovely lunch and small shopping spree and then we headed home. Trip was about 3 hours each way from a Delhi to Agra - so its a long day with an early start but well worth it!
