Beautiful. Nothing else to say. On the negative side: Beware of the heat if you visit during summer. Beware of the crowd if you visit during winter.

Never been so disappointed in my entire life. Agra is sheet. If you want to come here just for the Taj Mahal, give this place a skip. Food sucks, people suck, the place will drain you out of your life force even if it's a Friday.

Had quite a journey by taxi from Delhi over three hours drive. Very heavy rain and high winds causing trees to blow over the expressway. As soon as my taxi door was opened I was flocked by people wanting to be my official guide, and official photographer. I opted to take a guide to get rid of the rest of... More

Don't expect to get too close in a car. Electric buses run from the visitor centre - they're frequent and clean!

The guide was superb as was the pick up and drop off car service- I LOVED being able to learn about this world wonder in peace without the hassle of unwanted hawkers. The only slight negative is that the drive is not as scenic as the train ride but having read about tons of Delhi train station scams this to... More

I got the all in one plate. It was a nice portion of tandori chicken in a curry sauce, veggies and bread etc. I was full for about 20 hours. The staff is very nice and helpful. They speak English very well.
