About
Many Agra tours stretch to a day, limiting options if you’re short on time. By comparison, this private tour keeps things short and sweet, letting you concentrate on the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort—both UNESCO World Heritage sites. Take a walking tour around these treasures as your guide uncovers hidden details and charts their history. For extra convenience, pickup and drop-off at Agra hotels, train station, and airport are included.

    Amazing tour to Taj Mahal from Rishikesh
    I am so happy I booked this tour. I originally began in rishikesh and my driver was kind and courteous. We stopped at good quality restaurants along the way to Agra & I checked into a nice comfortable hotel in Agra. My tour guide Bobby is very knowledgeable and takes the best photos. He speaks amazing English & I felt lucky to have him to learn more about Agra, Agra Forte and the Taj Mahal. I had dinner and breakfast at the hotel which was delicious & good quality food. The tour includes airport drop off afterwards in Delhi (or hotel drop off), which meant that I could sightsee on my final day in India without worrying about my luggage and with comfortable transportation. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone wanting to see the Taj Mahal from an experienced local guide.

    Had a great time.. We had a 3 day trip in Delhi and Agra, didn't expect the trip will be this easy and beautiful. The service was so good and the room in both places was great. And need to say about the driver Tikkam Bai, he was so satisfying and helpful in this whole trip.. If anyone search for a package trip or anything like that you can definitely go with these guys with a reasonable price..

    Gurugram to Agra Tour
    Excellent service! I was in Gurugram on business and decided to take a tour of Agra and the Taj Mahal on my off day. Booking this tour was very easy; the price was reasonable, and my driver and your guide were excellent! I can’t speak highly enough about the private tour guide I had. He was well educated and very knowledgeable, and worked for the India ministry of tourism. He showed me things about the Taj Mahal that few people know, and was a walking history book! My driver was very kind and helpful, too. I felt very safe. Would recommend.

    Absolutely Amazing Experience from start to finish
    We have just returned from our overnight tour to Agra, and with Sunny looking after your travel plans, you cannot go wrong. We 100% recommend that you do it. Nothing was a problem for Sunny and his team! From being picked up in Delhi by his driver, to being escorted through the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort by his pHd qualified guide, my family were made to few like Royalty. Our itinerary was flexible to the minute, and Sunny and his staff basically assumed the roles of family with our 1 and almost 3 year olds. Please consider Sunny and his team when booking tours to Agra, they’re undoubtedly the best in the business.

    I took my elderly parents on a religious tour of Varanasi, Ayodhya and Pryagraj. Sunny the tour guide was awesome. He arranged two wheel chairs with staff to push them and made sure the entire trip was fun and safe. Thank you Sunny, driver Vishal and Wheelchair team. So happy that I was able to give this experience to my parents. Thank you

    DELHI, AGRA, JAIPUR, AMRITSAR CUSTOM TOUR
    It was a pleasure to write this review for giving us an ever-memorable trip. Our trip was a customized one and Mr. Sunny makes it so well and we enjoyed each and every moment of it. From planning the places to visit, travelling, choosing the dates and for everything he was there to help us. He helped us to plan our Panjab trip safely even during the flood time. He was available 24 hrs. for every single queries. Thank you, S.A.M tours and specially Mr. Sunny for making this trip unforgettable.

    Ana Ibf tour with great tour guide.
    Great tour. Got picked up from Delhi by car, reliable driver Rahul and comfortable car. Shyam joined me in Agra and provided the best Taj Mahal experience. He made a tour tailored for me and answered all my question. Also, took pictures of me on top locations without any queues. Can’t find anything better in this tour.

    Personalized Jaipur and Agra tour
    The tour was very well planned and coordinated. Very Memorable and enjoyed every minute. Sunny the Manager was always reachable to answer any doubts/questions. Booking, pickup from Airport was all seamless. The Car driver Mr Subhash was very humble, polite and careful when driving. He was on time always to pick us up . He even went above and beyond to find candies that my daughter had when she visited in 2017 and brought a bunch for her. We have 2 exceptionally knowledgeable tour guides Mr Anurag for Jaipur and Mr Shyam for Agra, both shared there knowledge and made the tour enjoyable , both were very fluent in English. As the temperatures were very during our visit in June , Mr Shyam went above and beyond and bought Mineral drinking water for us. Mr Anurag went above and beyond and took us nice shopping place cloths. The only bad experience was the Hotel Staff , who were not at all professional both at Jaipur and Agra.

I can't recommend Shyam Ji enough. He was an excellent guide who was very patient. The ticket counter was closed at the Taj and he arranged to quickly get online tickets without any hassle. He was flexible with our tour as my 2 teens were struggling with the heat and we did a drive by tour of the Fort rather than going in. Then upon our request he took us to Sheroes Cafe where he patiently waited for us to get refreshments and then took us back to our Hotel. We felt very safe with Shyam Ji as female travellers. I would highly recommend!

I used the service of this local agency for various steps of my 3 weeks journey in India and was very impressed by their professionalism. Sunny looked after me from my first contact on WhatsApp all the way to waving us goodbye at the train Station from Agra to Varanasi. He was extremely responsive and all of the services provided were on time and as described. Strongly recommended!

Great experience with Sam Travel for 1 day trip in Agra to see Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Very knowledgeable guide, smooth pick up from the train station, comfortable car and very, very reasonable price compared to other travel agencies. Also, our train from Agra to Jodhpur got delayed, and Sam Travel arranged a hotel for us to stay at while waiting for the train and mid-night pick up from hotel to train station. Greatly recommend and would use again.

From the initial email till the end of the tour everything was simply perfect. Sunny kept me informed every step of the way and answered all my questions and concerns. Airport reception, Taxi to Agra and Taj Tour pickup and drop off back at airport was ontime. Driver was very nice took us to the best restaurant and showed us all major landmarks in Delhi. Our tour guide Shyam is very knowledgeable and explained each and every details and we went with old parents and he made sure to arrange shuttle service from entrance of tajmahal so they dont have to walk so much. He was very protective of us and made sure we got the best experience. Everyone ( Upendra, Sunny, Bansari and Shyam) we interacted with was so polite, respectful and provided the best A class service. We had the best time and most memorable experience.. Thank you.. S.A.M travels! I wish we had more time :)

This tour was a truly amazing experience. The tour guide Shyam bir Singh showed me around and provided me with a wealth of information about the history of the sites. It could totally visualize how life must have been centuries ago. He was very helpful and kind, and made sure I was well. The bookings experience was also fast, and the driver was timely and friendly. All in all I can truly recommend this tour company.

A sudden plan was executed excellent way by SAM Tours. The guide Shyam sir was excellent with immense knowledge of History, Art and Culture. He is the best guide we ever met. He was very calm, composed and pleasant throughout. He answered our all queries and we r spellbound by his knowledge. Driver Sanjeev was very welcoming and warm. To summarise it was a excellent tour well organised within Budget and we would love for more tours.

Mr Shyambir made our Agra tour spectacular. The ride was comfortable. He made sure we had all the correct tickets and information before entering. He knew where to go for great photos. He knew so much history about the Taj, the baby Taj, and the Agra fort. We learned so much. He seemed excited to share all the history and didn’t mind our questions. He took us to get Petha upon our mention that we wanted to try it, and there was no pressure to buy anything or go to multiple shops, as we’ve experienced with other guides in India. I would book with this tour company and specifically with Mr Shyambir again when traveling northern India. Thanks for the great experience! 10/10 recommend.
