I was in Mumbai for work for a few weeks and wanted to see the Taj Mahal, but I had limited time. I ended up booking this tour and a roundtrip flight from Mumbai to Delhi the same day. My flight left at 3am and I got in to Delhi around 5:30am. My driver was right on time at 6:30am to pick me up and take me to the train station (~40 minute drive), he was very nice and waited with me for the train to come then personally took me to my seat. The train ride was nice (a little less than two hours going, exactly 90 minutes coming back) and there was breakfast served, although I didn't get it because I was asleep. When I arrived in Agra my second driver was waiting to take me in to town and we picked up the guide on the way. It took about 15 minutes and we were in the gates of the Taj by 10:15am. The guide was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions, and took really great pictures for me the entire day. He also handled the tickets at each location. We spent about an hour touring the Taj then he gave me about 40 minutes to enjoy it alone. We then left and were picked up to go to the lunch buffet, which was good.
Following this, we went to the Agra fort in which we spent about another hour touring then he gave me some more time to enjoy by myself. Afterward, I had about two hours before I had to be back at the train station so the guide took me to two shops that highlight the original craftsmanship of Agra and have souvenirs. We then went to a clothing shop and a tea shop his friend owned. I got some great souvenirs from these places. I was then taken back to the train station (dinner included on train), picked up by the same driver from the morning in Delhi, and got back to the airport about 8:30pm for my 9:40pm flight. It was a long day but VERY worth it. I would definitely recommend this tour as everything was very smooth and I heard of other people that had trouble with tickets and cabs because they didn't plan ahead of time, many of them got scammed as well. The driver in Agra was the same the whole time and I was able to leave my backpack in the car and just take what I needed. Everyone I interacted with from this tour company was very professional and nice. I am a 26 y/o female that was traveling solo and this tour made it very easy and safe for me.
