As always with La Vacanza Travel, our day trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal went flawlessly! We were picked up at our hotel by a driver who told us so many interesting facts about Delhi, then escorted through the bustling train station in Delhi and shown right to our seats on the train. We splurged for 1st class tickets and thought it was worth it. We got a meal and bottled water both ways and had a great view of the countryside from our comfy seats in the 1st class coach.
I thought this was a group tour but it turned out to be a private tour for just my husband and I. Our guide met us at the train in Agra and took us to the car that we had use of all day. Our guide was Saurabh Gupta and he was amazing! He was very knowledgeable, well-spoken, friendly and polite. He spent the entire day with us explaining all the details about the Taj Mahal and Fort Agra, the history, the culture, the political and religious influences. It was fascinating and so informative. It's popular to hire a photographer on the Taj grounds to take your picture, which we did. We paid $35 USD for 40 pictures, but many of them were silly poses that we didn't need. As it turned out, our guide Saurabh offered to take pictures on my phone and he was a better photographer than the guy we hired. I would recommend asking for Saurabh as your guide and giving him the money you would pay a photographer.
The lunch that was included at the BBQ restaurant was delicious and the atmosphere was cool and relaxing. Afterwards we went to tour Fort Agra, which also a must-see and is fascinating and impressive. The only downside of the tour was the stop at the artisan shops. It was interesting to see the artisans at work, but they really pressured us to buy something. Beware, the marble shop was ridiculously overpriced! I bought a set of coasters for $55 USD and saw the same ones in the airport gift shop for $20! The rug shop on the lower level had really beautiful handmade rugs at reasonable prices, so if you buy anything, I would suggest doing it there.
At the end of the day, we were put back on the train and then taken back to our hotel. It was an awesome, memorable experience, one that I know we wouldn't have been comfortable doing on our own. So thank you La Vacanza Travel for helping us make a dream trip come true! I would highly recommend it! (Be generous and tip your guide and drivers... these folks work hard and do a great job!)

It was an excellent Tour , coming to India and not visiting the Taj Mahal is not knowing India.
The most important thing is that the route was very pleasant, I had excellent coordination on the route with 2 very friendly drivers, good seats on the train tickets, the guide very well with the explanations, the truth is an excellent day.

This was a really good day trip from Delhi. Everything was really well organised, from being picked up at both ends to and from the train, being shown to our seats, and the tour of the Taj and Agra Fort. Our tour guide had much knowledge and was clear most of the time - whenever we could not quite understand something he was always ready to repeat what he said, and if necessary, to explain in more detail. We opted for the trip without lunch included - would suggest this as we just wanted a small lunch, ended up going to Costa coffee - that was enough food as breakfast was large.

It was very nice trip with kind guide and on time pick up taxi. Staffs are good at Japanese and English so I recommend this tour for Japanese tourists too. Their response was also good so that I can ask some question about tour.

My Girlfriends and I traveled throughout India and I arranged this tour for our short trip to Delhi. I have been to the Taj Mahal several times and knew that I wanted a very organized tour especially since our time was limited. This company delivered as promised. As explained, we were promptly picked up at the hotel. Taken by car to the express train. The guide showed us to our seats. He then returned when we arrived in Agra. He handed us over to another guide and car who shuttled us straight to the Taj Mahal. We did not have to wait in the long line for tickets - they were LONG! The guide was very knowledgeable about the history and spoke great English. We also had the same experience visiting Agra Fort - no line, easy entry and knowledgeable guide. The guide took us to 2 shops and a great restaurant for lunch. We then were driven back to the train station where the first guide met us, placed us on the train and they promptly took us back to our hotel upon arrival in Delhi. No problem with the train we arrived back in the evening and our flight was at 3am the next day! I am not knocking down my rating for the store stops as I expected this. But you should know that you will get the hard sell at the gem store and at the marble store. The stores carry beautiful things and there is no obligation to purchase though it can be hard to say no!, but just know you are not really being taken to these stores to watch the craftsman. Overall - it was a great experience for all of us and this company runs a tight ship delivering excellent service and wonderful staff.
