Very accessible with prams and babies, we were quite pleasantly surprised with it. Would not have expected it in India

“Does was it says on the tin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

It is better than all the pictures , you have to see this in 3D!
We saw it twice in the afternoon up until sunset and then again at dawn the next morning. Both experiences were amazing . The former had the most people because it was a Sunday and there were many locals. Monday was much quieter and morning was a good time for both the light and people. We even had a bit of fog which added to the beauty.On balance I think early morning is the best time. Had to smile at the 'high value tickets' 750 v 20 for locals!!

But what a statement of love!

“Memorable Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Visit to Taj Mahal is a must for any visitor to India. Only a few hours drive from New delhi or can even take a train to the city of Agra. Hire an english speaking Govt guide. Don't fall in tourist traps. One night stat in Agra only if needed or make it just a day trip from Delhi and back the same day.
