      Absolutely the right call for a day trip to Agra
      From the beginning to the end, it was all seamless. Our guide, Mr. Fraz, knew every gate, person, and hack to make the day smooth. We were able to skip all lines and save time/energy at every step. We felt bad for some of the other tourists who didn’t have a guide to show them where to go or what line to get into. Mr. Fraz was also very knowledgeable about both the Taj and Agra Fort and had answers to all of our questions. Our driver was early to our hotel and had a very spacious, comfortable SUV for the ride. The only part that could be ironed out a little bit better was who we were going to pay, when. But that ended up being smooth at the end. Overall, this group knows what they’re doing and getting a guide/tour is absolutely the right call for Agra.

      Fabulous and VERY trustworthy.
      You never know if the operator will keep his word. I was nervous but Mohd sent the name of every guide the day before or days before on WhatsApp and had them all contact me. They were all great and trustworthy. I will 100% use them in the future and loved my time in India. If you can, ask for Mr. Singh to be your driver. As there are probably several Singhs, ask for the one whose WhatsApp ends in 3911. He is amazing and ALWAYS early and patient and smooth and safe. I wanted to hire him to work for me back in the US. But if you hire him please be generous and tip at LEAST $20/day. $30-40 would be more fair. He's working his tail off and never complains and always gets out to open the door. Tip him and everyone well not because you have to but because you can and it's the right thing to do.

      Epitome of authentic guide
      Me & my 3 friends were attended/ entertained by Shahnawaz ji for Taj Mahal. He was very patient. Apart from explaining in detail about the Taj Mahal's history, he was also suggesting to us (by not being pushy at all) the right location for photography, food joint as per your choice of food & financial factors, for e.g. The restaurant recommended by him, SALT CAFE KITCHEN & BAR, was amazing. For agra fort, we were entertained by one of his staff Mr. Shahid, took us directly i.e. without standing in line to enter. That was a relief. He was also well versed at explaining the fort's history. Guys, if you want to enjoy your visit to any monuments, please hire a professional guide , it will certainly enhance your overall experience. I will definitely reach out to them for my upcoming Jaipur trip.

      Trip with nice people:)
      We booked the trip a few hours before it started. Everything was done without any problems. Ride with a driver who knows how to drive here. The guide was nice and talks interestingly. He took us to interesting places and took photos. Taj mahal and Arga fort are beautiful.

      Amazing trip through the Taj Mahal
      Mohd Shahnawaz delivered an extraordinary tour of the Taj Mahal, enhanced by a professional photographer who captured our moments beautifully. The culinary delights at the Taj Mahal restaurant were a highlight, offering authentic tastes that complemented our experience. Shahnawaz’s expertise shone as he guided us through the marble manufacturing process, deepening our appreciation for the Taj Mahal’s craftsmanship. The visit to Agra Fort was equally captivating, with his stories bringing historical events to life. His professionalism and friendly approach made the tour not just a visit, but a journey through India’s rich culture and history. I highly recommend Mohd Shahnawaz for a truly immersive and unforgettable experience at the Taj Mahal. His dedication and knowledge deserve more than 5 stars.

      Great trip guided by Mohd
      We arranged to have Mohd as our guide at Taj and Agra fort and at Fatehpur Sikri the following day on our way to Jaipur. Mohd was excellent at providing clear and interesting historical and architectural details. He really brought Agra fort to life for us. At Fatehpur Sikri I loved that he showed the well known features like a screened window above king’s bed for ventilation but also that his ministers waited outside his bedroom window every morning for the king to announce he is still alive and kicking. There are local guides on site but I am so glad we paid more to have Mohd accompany us. My one small gripe was we felt a little rushed when visiting the courtyard with anup talao and panch Mahal, Mohd said there’s is another palace we need to see. But the only remaining site was diwan-I-aam, not that much to talk about or photograph. The courtyard with treasury and girls school was the focal point of the entire imperial palace complex and I wish we weren’t rushed. I also didn’t appreciate being taken to the 3D embroidery gallery (not on itinerary) where the sales pitch felt too pressured and we were taken to multiple floors of items for sale. Still, overall I strongly recommend Mohd as a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our 1.5 days being guided by such competent expert.

      Beautiful tour of Agra
      I did a tour of Agra (Baby Taj, Agra Fort, and sunrise Taj Mahal) with Mohd Shahnawaz Khan "Danish." He was very knowledgeable and went to great lengths to ensure I was having a good time. I felt very comfortable with him and was impressed with his ability to plan out everything to a T. I would definitely recommend Danish to anyone looking to explore Agra and/or Delhi.

      10/10 tour in Agra with Danish
      Excellent tour with amazing sights and a knowledgeable guide. Danish told us all the fascinating history and craftsmanship of the sights visited and allowed us to skip queues, which was very valuable given the heat. The driver was also very safe and friendly. 10/10 tour in terms of sights, insights and comfort!

      Have a great experience, go with Mo!
      There are no shortage of guide options in Agra, but I was "guided" to Mo and I'm so glad. He taught me far more than I expected to learn and was glad to do so. Savvy, knowledgable, experienced and kind, Mo took care of every detail in advance: car & driver, professional photographer, VIP tickets, etc. When I had odd requests like fresh jasmine flowers for my hotel room and a custom engraved brass sign, it was not a problem for Mo who knew where and when to go-mission accomplished! A good guide can make all the difference and Mo certainly did. If you want a great experience, go with mo!

      Great private tour for Ages
      What a great team!! Clear communication and very organised when it came to executing our tour. Dev was our driver. Very safe, comfortable car, courteous and put up with all our music. Mohd was a great guide full of information and knew to keep it short when our kids grew tired. Highly recommend A great way to see the Agra if you are limited on time in Delhi.

      Excellent Guided Tour Experience
      It was a pleasure having Mr. Anjum guide us during our trip. We live in the US and our kids don’t understand the Hindi language very well. Mr. Anjum explained the significance of each monument in great detail in very good English. He is extremely polite and very helpful. We take back very good family memories and in a lot of ways Mr. Anjum helped us realize them.

    We had a very pleasant and hassle-free experience. What really helped was that they were available on call and text any time during the day.

    Riaz was our tour guide he was kind and knowledgeable. He knew all the photo spots and was himself adept in taking photos.

    We visited the Taj on the full moon night viewing event. Unfortunately the moon wasn't high enough at 9pm. Would suggest an later time of 11pm.

    10/10 will recommend.

    We visited Fatehpur Sikri, Taj Mahal and Agra Fort with Mr. Danish Anjum and it was a great experience. Mr. Danish was patient, answered all the questions and had excellent knowledge of history of all the monuments. He gave us intersting tidbits about local history as well as recommended good places to eat. He was on time even when we had to leave for the sunrise visit for Taj Mahal at 5 am and was such pleasant person to talk to. Would definitely recommend him for a perfect tour.

    Mohammed provided the most wonderful tour of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He’s a true expert, guiding us through these amazing spaces with great knowledge and care. The Taj Mahal was as beautiful as I expected, but Agra fort was even better- an amazing place and fascinating history. Our guide answered every question and even dropped us off at the railway station in his own car. The very best tour guide! He is personable, knowledgeable and funny.

    Mr Shahnwaaz was helpful throughout the trip and made last moment adjustments to ensure that we didn't miss anything on our trip to Agra and Fatehpur Sikri. Our guide, Mr Armaan, was well behaved and told us intriguing facts about Taj and Agra fort which made the whole experience a lot more wonderful. The cab was well maintained, clean and the driver, Rishi ji, ensured a smooth and safe ride throughout the trip.
    I will definitely recommend their service to anyone looking for a guided tour in Agra.

    A very knowledgeable gentleman who was excellent with communication whilst booking the trip from the UK and also whilst in Agra.
    He was extremely prompt (even early) in collecting us from our hotel .
    The car for the later part of the tour was clean and well driven with plentiful water supplies .

    We had a very good time. Our guide was serious, respectful, he guided us through the visit to the Taj Mahal and Fort, explaining things to us step by step. The visit is even more enjoyable for us thanks to his good knowledge of Italian.
    he also acted as our photographer, suggesting the best views. He advised us where to have lunch (not tourist traps) and showed us delicious typical desserts, in a stall with delicious food. Highly recommended.

    Recommend this tour company, was very easy to book and organised driver to pick my partner & I up from our hotel.

    Abdul was a very knowledgeable and polite local guide with plenty of knowledge of Taj Mahal and Agra fort. Also took us to ‘baby Taj’ which was worth the add on.

    Assisted by incredibly kind, calm and capable Waseem as our chauffeur for the day.

    Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting.
