One of the world wonders, it’s a great Mughal architecture, no words to say after watching this architecture. Best time to visit early in the morning otherwise very crowdy. Amazing experience

There's nothing much you can say which has not been said before! Truly a wonderful experience made great by our guide, Amir Hosan, who was exceptional.

Pictures do not do the Taj Mahal justice. It is gorgeous. Be sure to hire a guide to add insight concerning The Taj.

The Taj is an exclusive masterpiece and the handiwork of great artists and God-gifted people.The beauty,the symmetry,the concept,the designs are fabulous and believe me once should visit this great monument to feel what is love. But,the management needs to be improved.There should be proper maintenance of such heritage property and the restriction of disguised guides should be avoided.I have seen... More

What can I say - OMG just in awe. We went at sunrise which I think is the better time as there were not as many people, as I am led to believe, come at sunset. The overall ambience of the structure just overwhelms you really. Visiting the Taj made our whole 1 month trip to Northern India worth it... More

The Taj Mahal has haunted me ever since I can remember and in real life it is everything I dreamed it would be and more. My first surprise was that the Taj is actually in a courtyard surrounded by walls of red stone and and impressive gateway. There is a raised platform about a hundred meters/yards from which it is...

Just stunning! We got our first image of it across the river and in a haze. It made it even more magical. I'm glad to have gone now as the rumor has it that the visits may be limited to fewer tourists or none at all in the near future. The building was never built for 10 to 15,000 viewers... More

This was my first trip to India and to Agra. My first view of the Taj Mahal was truly breathtaking, and it certainly deserves to be a Wonder of the World. We had an amazing official guide who steered us through the huge crowds and knew just where the best photo opportunities were. It was a brilliant experience and definitively... More

The Taj Mahal itself is a nice monument, although really noth that special. Looks much more majestic and charming on the pictures all over the internet than in reality. Beware of the scammer guides before you enter. We never got one, nor wanted one, but you should know this - this guy, probably with a fake government tourist guide ID,... More
