My partner and I booked this tour as we had a short stay in Delhi and wanted to see the sights in Agra whilst there. I really recommend it - everything went smoothly. Our driver and tour guide were excellent. The hotel stay was very comfortable and had spa facilities, which we made use of! We had flexibility to go for any of the shopping excursions or decline as we preferred. Our guide knew all the best spots for photos and was very knowledgeable about all the sites - visits were planned at the best time of day to avoid the crowds.

My friend and I recently visited India and took this tour. As two females travelling alone, safety was most important to us. We were highly pleased with our decision to book with La Vacanza Travel who arranged everything for us with the local Tour Operator, Nikita Holidays. Our Driver, named Prem, was excellent. He was prompt and friendly, pointing out sites along the way on the drive from Delhi. Once in Agra we met up with our Tour Guide named Rajesh, who was also excellent. He provided lots of information on the sites as well as the culture and background, and made sure that we got to see what was of interest to us. This was a totally enjoyable tour. I highly recommend it.

Our tour to Agra was amazing. Our tour guide, Rajesh Kumar was extremely knowledgeable about Agra and informative about the Taj Mahal and the history behind the monument. He was also very friendly and kind. The hotel went above our expectations. We would definitely consider booking a tour again!

If in Delhi then take time to go to Agra and the Taj Mahal. We did this and everything about the trip was just about perfect. Before leaving Delhi by car we had been in contact with the CEO, Raj, of the tour operator. He kept us informed of pick-up times, names etc. After our driver, Hari, collected us there was a 3hr. trip to Agra. We were booked into the Crystal Sarovar Premiere Hotel. This was a good hotel with an swimming pool etc. We were greeted by our guide, Rejesh. For the rest of the day and the following day we saw the Taj Mahal at sunset and during the day. We also saw Agra Fort. The guide explained the history during the sightseeing and how some of the art work was created. We were taken to just two crafts shops. Both of these were extremely interesting and at no time did we think we were being pushed into buying anything.

The drive there and back was educational and interesting. Traffic in Delhi just crazy. An expressway for most of the journey which had very little traffic. It gave a good over-view of India.

Everything about this trip was excellent. Anybody booking this trip would be really lucky to get the service, the guide and driver we had.

Date of visit October 2017
