After a lot of research, I ended up going with Deepak Sharma's Sudarshan India Day Tour company, and I have to say, it ended up saving the second half of my trip, in South India, which I wrote a separate review for. But first, the North India tour. I gave Deepak a list of places I wanted to see, along with a rough timeline. It started with the usual sights in Delhi, then on to Agra to see Taj Mahal, but instead of doing the entire golden triangle (i.e. Jaipur), I opted for a small village called Orchha, which I ended up being extremely satisfied with. Deepak mentioned that since I was going to Orchha, I should consider Khajuraho as well since it was only a few hours away. This ended up being a fantastic recommendation. Deepak put me with a very capable driver named Gurmeet, who made sure I was everywhere I needed to be at the proper time. The most impressive example of this was the Taj Mahal night visit. There was a festival going at the same time, and it was all extremely chaotic (so, typical day in India). It was 100% not even close to obvious where to go, but Gurmeet navigated all of it flawlessly, until I eventually found myself standing in this random line that had no obvious connection to anything, but which eventually moved to a place where a military officer escorted us to another place, where we waited a few minutes, and then were allowed in for our 30 minute visit. My point here is that I can guarantee there's no way I would've found where I should be to see the Taj at night without Gurmeet's help. After seeing Delhi and Agra, I went to Orchha, and saw the Orccha fort complex, including Raja Mahal and Jahangir Mahal, and also Lakshmi temple. My final (and favorite) thing here was the Chhatris Cenotaphs (don't miss this). From Orccha, we drove to Khajuraho, to see the famous Nagara style temples, including the (in)famous erotic sculptures, fascinating! The guide there was particularly good, and even invited me into his home to meet his family, which is always fun. I was planning on visiting a friend down in Bangalore, and due to the distance and my time constraints, flying was the only option. I purchased a plane ticket from a municipal airport in a little town called Gwalior, before my trip began, but after talking to Deepak, and thinking about it a bit, I decided that was very risky, because there was only a single flight to Bangalore per day, and they often cancel if they can't get enough tickets. My itinerary was extremely tight, and I couldn't afford to lose a day, so half way through the trip, I decided to cancel the flight and instead drive back to Delhi from Khajuraho (where there are multiple flights a day to Bangalore). The downside? This is an 11-12 hour drive. Still, Deepak agreed that this would work, but then later he offered to set me up with a train ticket instead, which got me there in a quarter of the time, and saved myself (and the driver) a considerable about of drive time. This is the kind of value-add you can expect from Deepak's tour company, I was extremely grateful for this. Deepak made all the arrangements, just a few days before my trip south, and he ensured that Gurmeet dropped me off directly at the train car I needed to be in, and that there'd be someone to meet me at the other end, in Delhi, and drive me to my hotel there (from which I took a flight the following day). Everything was executed flawlessly in the North India part of the trip, and I had a great time. However, while planning the trip, a few weeks prior, I had spent so much time planning everything out for North India, that I got a bit burned out, and decided I'd just sort of wing it when it came to South India portion. However, actually being in India made me realize this was a bit ridiculous. There's just no way I could do everything I had planned, all on my own. So just a day or two before leaving for Bangalore, I asked Deepak if he knew anyone in South India that he'd recommend. He asked a few questions, and within an hour or two he came up with a new itinerary, promising a driver and relevant guides along with way. A review of that trip is next...

Deepak came like a saviour for us when we recently visited Agra with our last minute plan of seeing Taj during full moon. Tickets for this viewing can not be booked online and can be booked only a day in advance and so to make this happen I frantically searched for a dependable agency/person, thanks to trip advisor I got reference of Deepak and within hours I had the tickets done :) . The entire experience was very smooth and fast with Deepak getting the tickets to me and also advised on how best I can utilize my stay at Agra. He is definately recommended for anyone looking for an excellent Taj Expeirence.
