My husband and I are first timers in India, so arriving into Delhi was definitely quite overwhelming. Well, thank goodness for Nikita Holidays and their amazing working staff for making us feel comfortable, super happy and excited in India... especially, for giving us the chance to check off the Taj Mahal from our bucket list in the best way imaginable.
From the minute I booked the excursion online on La Vacanza Travel.com, I received a prompt whatsapp message from the company confirming our reservation and contact information. Days leading to our excursion, including the night before, Nikita Holidays provided me with the final confirmation information that included the driver's name, vehicle number, time, etc. I thought it was very well organized and great!
The day of the trip was pure perfection and everything we could ever hope for. Vishan was our driver and he was the best!!! He arrived right on time, 2:30am on the dot, to our hotel with a very comfy van to transport us to Agra. He was very professional and kind. So much so, that after this day, we can call him a friend AND requested his amazing service for a day tour of Delhi the following day. On the way to Agra, he told us about India, his family, the culture and stopped for some delicious Masala Chai tea. It was a great ride to Agra!
Once we arrived to Agra, we met our guide Rajesh... who was just as incredible as well!! He was also a great professional, very knowledgeable of Agra and the Taj Mahal. He told us everything we wanted to know of the monuments and it's magical stories. He gave us the the best tour we could have ever hoped for. He knew the best time for the most incredible sunrise views of the Taj Mahal. It was worth the long and super early start. It was an absolute beauty! Rajesh made sure to give us the best tour ever with his professionalism and superb kindness. Rajesh, Oscar and I thank you for a great tour my friend!!
After the tour of the Taj Mahal, we had a lovely breakfast at a nice hotel nearby and then headed to see how tapestry, jewelry, marble, rugs are made in Agra. Both Rajesh and Vishan were always on point and ready to assist us with any questions or concerns. Even when I started to feell ill at a point within the excursion, they were attentive and helped us go at our pace. I couldn't walk the Agra Fort feeling this way so they were kind to drive us around it for pictures and tell us more history behind the monument. I promise you, they are a dynamic duo and the best in the business to go visit Agra!
Finally, on the way back Vishan was amazing as always, as we stopped for lunch and continue our drive back to Delhi. He has many incredible stories to share, and will make the ride as comfortable and entertaining as possible. The best part is that we get to work with this company and his exclusive service again tomorrow as we tour New and Old Delhi.
I highly recommend this company and their services. Request for Vishan and Rajesh!! They are the best and I guarantee will make you feel right at home with them in India!!
