Wonderful day tour with tour guide Asif
Daniel_F
, May 2022
We were going to be in Delhi for a couple of days for an Indian wedding and thought of visiting Taj Mahal & Agra. I searched online and found this tour company has the best reviews. We booked this package because we loved the train experience. Before the trip we received our train tickets and driver details. Our driver picked us up on time in our hotel The Imperial, he took us on the train, showed us our coach and seats, On arrival in Agra we met our tour guide Asif, who took us to the Cab and we went to the Taj Mahal. Our visit to the Taj Mahal far exceeded our expectations. A big reason why was our amazing guide Asif. He was great at adding background information, history and perspective. Asif also took beautiful and memorable pictures for us. After the taj we went for lunch to the local Pinch of spice restaurant. Food it’s awesome. After lunch we enjoyed Agra fort & local famous inlay crafts. It's a very unique art and I love it. At the end of day he got us back to Agra railway station and escorted us to our coach and seats. On arrival in Delhi, there was our same driver to take us back to our hotel. I would highly recommend this tour company and tour guide Asif.

Incredible tour
Adam_T
, Apr 2022
I have so many positive things to say about this tour, especially our tour guide. First of all, I want to thank you Ashish for organizing such an amazing trip for us. I took a day trip by train and it was the most fantastic trip of my life. Our driver Hari collected us from our hotel and took us right to the train & our seats. Our train seats are first class Air-conditioned. Our tour guide Asif Khan met us in Agra railway station. Asif was friendly and very knowledgeable. He helped us every step of the way. We couldn’t have completed this without him. We went to the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort & the Babi Taj. Asif took us very great pictures. He is a very professional photographer too. We had a great lunch at Pinch of spice restaurant, the food was delicious. I would strongly recommend Asif & this tour company to anyone planning a trip to India. I can’t wait to come back to India and see the Taj Mahal again with my family.

Day trip to Agra

We booked a Private Taj Mahal day trip by Gatimaan express train with All including from Delhi and it was an awesome trip. Our driver arrived on time and the car also was comfortable for two of us to travel. He helped us to show our train seats. This train takes only 90 minutes to reach Agra from delhi. Our tour guide Asif was amazing, Super friendly and explained everything about the sites and the Taj Mahal. He also knew a lot of tricks for special pictures, so now I have a lot of special and cool pictures to show to my friends and family. Lunch was great with vegetarian options. The car was modern, reliable & clean. The Driver was experienced and very capable. Definitely highly recommend his services !!!

Mr. Asif, our tour guide made this tour thoroughly enjoyable and smooth. Me and my wife were quite impressed by his knowledge about the Taj and other local attractions. Overall, the tour was very well organized. We were picked up from our hotel, helped to board the train and picked up by Asif in Agra. Same on the return journey, with Asif checking on us through texts till we got back to our hotel. Highly recommended .

We only had one day in Delhi and were keen to use our limited time well. We had a unforgettable experience with this tour company, booked through Viator. We couldn't have asked for a better day visiting the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort & Baby Taj with our professional & knowledgeable tour guide Asif. He is very skilled at explaining the history in an interesting way and answered all my questions. He is also quite a skilled photographer and offered to take some fantastic shots of my wife and myself throughout the day. Our car was very comfortable & the lunch was very good. I highly recommend this tour suggest you request Asif as your tour guide. Thank You for everything !!!

Arturo_G

The Train tour was very well organised. We were collected from our hotel in Delhi and drive to the Delhi railway station on time. We were escorted into our train seats. When we got off at Agra station, we were escorted from the train to air conditioned luxury vehicle. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable & helpful person. We enjoyed Tajmahal, Agra fort & baby taj. He is also quite a skilled photographer and offered to take some fantastic shots of my wife and myself throughout the day. We did not have to stand in long queues as the entry tickets were pre-purchased by Perfect Agra tours. Lunch was very good and the agra driver were very professional and friendly. From beginning to end everything went smooth. This tour is excellent for first time visitors to Indian. It would be good for families as well. Highly recommended this tour to anyone visiting Agra !!!

John_R

This trip was awesome! our guide completely made it worthwhile. We went to the train station and were met by one guy and he snapped a picture of us and texted it to the guy in Agra. So, our actual guide picked us up and took us to all the sites and, of course, the Taj Mahal. what a great trip and our guide was awesome!

We look forward to doing more tours with Viator in the future.

Taj Trip via Train in February
Joseph_A
, Mar 2020
My colleague and I went on a tour with Asif Khan on a Saturday in late February. Asif seemed very knowledgeable of the city, and the tour allowed for plenty of time at each of the locations. As a tour guide he did a great job overall! As far as the train trip, it was not as bad as expected, but it was significantly slower than the website suggested. Our hotel was around 45 minutes from the train station, then a train ride of at least 2.5 hours (not 1hr 4 minutes), and then the drive to sites in Agra. My recommendation...if you are close to the train station, take the train. If you are not, it's probably worth exploring the drive there (3-4 hours from Delhi). Best part of the trip: Automatic. We had someone picking us up, dropping us off, taking us where we need to be the entire day. Worst part of the trip: Being taken to a marble shop (not in the itinerary) and shown incredibly expensive marble, most of which was unaffordable. Hope this helps!

Taj mahal
Martin_H
, Feb 2020
Delayed review! We used this service in December. We had a good time and our tour guide was great too. However, it was frustrating because we did not visit “baby Taj” as described in the description (and should be refunded the entrance fee!) as we got informed we had no time and would miss our train. In fact, we were driven to view it from afar and were asked if we want to view it and risk missing our train, we obviously didn’t want to miss our train. The frustrating part is, before telling us we were running out of time, we were taken to some marble supplier to see how the marble items were made and essentially wanted us to buy products from this supplier I would have preferred if you skipped the visit to the marble supplier and included a trip to the baby Taj. Otherwise, we had a great time!

We were picked up from our hotel promptly and taken directly to the train station. Our driver pointed out various sites in Delhi along the route. We were escorted to our seats on the train and about 90 minutes later we arrived in Agra. Our tour guide, Asif Kahn, was waiting for us on the train platform when we arrived in Agra. He had a picture of us that was sent to him by the driver in Delhi which was great so we knew we had the right person. A short drive later, we were at the entrance to the Taj Mahal. Asif provided in depth history of the town of Agra, including a time line of the many leaders who ruled Agra over the centuries. Once at the Taj Mahal, Asif continued with interesting insights about how the Taj Mahal was created, the inspiration for its creation, the specialized way the stone was used and so much more. Asif’s knowledge was vast and I really enjoyed the quiz he gave us after each information session. We stopped for lunch at Bon Barbeque. The food was fresh and delicious! A little tip ... don’t fill up on the starters because you won’t have room for the buffet items. We made that mistake and wished we had gotten to the buffet first and paced ourselves with the appetizers. Everything we tasted was excellent. Asif took us by some local shops for an opportunity to purchase hand crafted items. There were beautiful and unique items available. The shop owners are persistent in selling their crafts but polite. We were taken back to the train station for the ride back to Delhi. Our Delhi driver met us at the train station for the ride back to the hotel. Overall, we were very happy with the quality of the tour and the expertise of our tour guide, Asif. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a day trip to visit the Taj Mahal!

Having never travelled to India, my wife and I were a little nervous, but this tour was very well organized indeed. Pick up at the hotel was spot on time, and we were escorted to our railway carriage by our driver and guide at the Delhi end, Ravi Kumar. Train journey was fine, you even got a breakfast tray on the express ! Arrived at Agra end to be picked up as we exited our carriage by Imran Khan our guide for the day, and his driver. Imran was both knowledgeable and friendly and escorted us everywhere on a stunning tour. Lunch was included at Bon Barbecue and it was excellent also. Lovely barbecue starters followed by traditional Indian dishes. It was so good we could have stopped all afternoon Finally after visiting all three monuments including many photos taken by Imran as well as by ourselves we were escorted back to our train carriage. We had the misfortune for the train to break down on the way back so it took an extra 2 hours but our driver Ravi was still waiting for us at the Delhi end and whisked us back to our hotel in Aerocity cutting through the Delhi local streets which gave quite an insight into local culture. All in all, a marvelous experience at a very good price. Well done Imran and Ravi for providing a tour experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives ! Eddie and Christina McAlpine

The tour was seamless and outstanding. I was picked up directly from my hotel, guided to the train station and shown my seat on the train, then in Agra I was met by my tour guide for the day, Asif, who found me before I left the train. As far as the tour, Asif was knowledgeable about all the stops (the Taj Mahal was impressive, but the other stops were equally interesting) and answered all of my questions. He spoke clearly and ensured I enjoyed my tour - he even served as a photographer for me, as I was traveling alone. He knew the best places to take pictures. The tour also included some stops to gift shops for anyone interested in purchasing souvenirs. I'd strongly recommend this tour.

Decided to take the tour during my business trip to India on 6/9. Being the solo female, first time to India traveler, I was a bit worried about taking the private tour but Ashih (administrator contact for the tour) and Farid (my tour guide) made it very pleasant and an awesome experience. I was contacted by Ashih pre trip to confirm the details so I knew exactly what to expect ( he even sent me the picture of the meet up spot with the driver once I got to Agra) . The day of the trip, the Mr. Kishor picked me up very promptly from my hotel, guided through the craziness of the train station and seated me on the train. All I had to do was to sit and relax until I arrived at Agra station. Upon Agra arrival, I was greeted by the Agra driver for the day ( sorry Mr. Driver I don't know how to spell your name) with a beautiful flower necklace. Again, he guided me through all the craziness of the train station to the car, so I felt safe the entire time. Farid my tour guide was very knowledgeable ( he is one of the selected professional tour guide with government certification) and knew all the great photo op spots as well !! He explained and guided me through the beautiful sites throughout the day, all the while making sure I was comfortable and well hydrated !! (Mr. driver kept me hydrated with super chilled water bottles throughout the day). All that said. the tour was awesome, and I felt very comfortable and safe during the visit. Highly recommend !

Booked this tour and the owner called me and said the train was full! I thought he was about to tell me they had to cancel my reservation but instead he sent a private car to drive us to Agra. Mr. Hari was there bright and early and we made it back and forth to Agra and made our flight on time. Our tour guide Asif Khan was great too! He spoke good English! He knew his history of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort and he had a good personality. He also knows how to take good photos!
