I have recently started travelling extensively around the world and as a lone traveller, I was a little nervous about touring around India. When I spotted this private tour I went for it as you have your own driver etc and it was totally worth it. The driver was very nice and knew I was travelling alone ( I had contacted the booking service and actually got to speak to someone and they notified the tour guide) and he was just fantastic. The Tuk Tuk ride was an adventure the driver was a little crazy but it was a really good experience. From start to finish this tour was one of the best I have taken so far.

I recently went on a day tour to the Taj with my boyfriend and I was astonished by the place. I checked out the books and had it on my bucket list for years but when I was there I was speechless, it is breathtaking. It was right in front of me and I still can't believe I was there. It was hot hot hot but worth it, the guide we had was great, we skipped the line and did the morning sunrise tour. Thanks to my one and only (Roger) for the surprise holiday #tajmahal #bestboyfriendever#holidayofalifetime #bucketlist

I have never written a trip review before, however; after having a wonderful experience on our recent trip to India, I felt that I had to say how much we enjoyed your services. Our guide was an expert on the history of the beautiful Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He was so willing to assist us and he even became our photographer for the day. He also showed us the best places to buy crafts and it was a pleasure to spend the day in his company. Thank you so much.

The beauty of the Taj Mahal will take your breath away I was told, and it most certainly did. Our guide was brilliant and as it was a private tour, it seemed more special. Having an air-conditioned vehicle made such as difference because I did not realise how hot it would be. Thank you for making our day special and I will definitely recommend this tour to all of our friends.

This company really knows how to look after their clients. We were only going to be in Delhi for 4 days on business and we had only one day to do any sightseeing. It would have been terrible if we could not have visited the Taj Mahal and this one day tour fulfilled our wishes. The sights were wonderful and your guide had a comprehensive understanding of the history of the area. A great experience and thank you.

I have to start with our guide Chandon he knew everything you could possibly think of about the Taj Mahal and he made the day for us. My husband and I had the experience of a lifetime as we got there earlier that we thought so we had time to stroll around with very few tourists. thank you for a great ending to our perfect holiday in India.

I could not recommend this tour highly enough. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. From the very start, it was clear that he was passionate about his job and my husband and I were very impressed (it is not easy to impress my husband). Traveling to India was a once in a lifetime experience for us and although we took many tours – it is this one that came out tops.

We really enjoyed our tour in Agra! Our guide Chandan was helpful, knowledgeable, and very flexible. He was ready to help and do anything possible to make the experience better. Our driver Akashay was also great a pleasant, safe, and very polite. After experiencing other touring services in India, this is by far the best.

Thank you very much!

This was our very first time holidaying in India so we booked a private guided tour to Agra and the Taj Mahal and we were not disappointed.  When we hooked up with our driver guide Chandan I just know this was going to be fun as from the start he was hilariously funny and very knowledgeable about his country. When he heard it was our first time in India he took it upon himself to take us on all the “scenic routes” which was fantastic.

We stopped off in a place for some traditional Indian food and lovely coffee which Chandan paid for he was so nice.  He was telling us all about the tours we could do and little tips about Agra like where to change money and place to avoid. The scenery was spectacular we lucked out with our tour guide Chandan he knew all the history of the Taj Mahal and all the historical facts he was just great and made the trip for us. We went to the Star of India and all over Agra.

I would definitely recommend Chandan and his team.

I booked this tour I was not sure but now I am happy that I did. Our driver was on time and got us to the Taj Mahal early which was perfect as we were one of the first groups in the gate. We got some stunning photographs our driver and guide were extremely knowledgeable and we avoided the crowds while navigating around the sight. Perfecto! Thank you for an unforgettable experience.

I recently visited Agra with a friend from the US. We were lucky enough to find a guide from Delhi Routes. We went to sighting seeing, shopping, and to lunch.

Our guide, Chandan Verma, took us to some fantastic places. He had all kinds of information about the sights--Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, etc.

So he made the experience really enjoyable. It helps to have someone explain the history while you're looking around. We had a driver for the day, who was also excellent. But while driving around, Chandan also talked to us about the city and the places we were driving by as well as history about India. The whole day was entertaining.

For anyone visiting Agra, I highly recommend Chandan.

Organised to meet up with Chandan from Delhi. Once we arrived in Agra, we found him quickly enough. Then we commenced with the tour; we could not have asked for a better guide. He was very knowledgeable on everything to do with the Taj Mahal and would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Many thanks again.
