Great Tour with Vivek
On the first full day of our first trip to Delhi, we took a day trip to Agra with Vivek Handa, whom we found through ToursWithLocals. The day was seamless—Vivek got us seated the high speed train, talked with us during the ride about Indian culture and what we would see in Agra, then guided us though the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, and Baby Taj (the last of which was not on the itinerary but which Vivek squeezed in to accommodate our interests). The train ride was fun, with surprisingly good food (choose non-veg if it fits your diet), although the view suffered a bit because of seasonal smog. Once at the sites, Vivek clearly was a familiar and well-liked guide, which helped us get, for example, that extra precious minute at the Taj tomb to see the glowing red stones. The Taj Mahal, is just what you have been told it is—magnificent. But don’t discount the Agra Fort, which is fascinating in its own right. If you’re looking for a local guide, I would highly recommend Vivek. He is knowledgeable, calm, easy to talk with, and has a good sense of humor. We felt safe and well taken care of, and we were never once bored or ill at ease during what was a very long day—how often can you say that?

Took Tour with Mehfooz Guide
Excellent guide and very friendly and knowledgeable. We would have not been able to get around so easily without him. The trip was organized very well and Mehfooz was delightful and great for family trips. He spoke perfect English and was not pushy about purchasing or going to the tourist shops if that is a turn off for you. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend him and will come back with friends specifically requesting him.

I am extremely happy to say the trip was very well organised, Driver Rajkumar arrived sharp at 6:30am picked us up from the hotel and dropped us to Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station, he was very courteous and even helped us to be seated in our train coach. We arrived agra and was greeted by our guide Mr Mehfooz siddiqui, Car was clean and Our Driver Mr. Akhtar was very polite, we visted Taj Mahal and its was very pleasant, Mr. Mehfooz made us feel at ease all the time and shared a lot of knowledgeable things. He was kind enough to guide us through various other things aswell. Afterwards we had a great lunch at courtyard marriot, and later visited Baby Taj Mahal and Red Fort. Overall the trip was excellent and worth every penny. I would recommend joyful holidays to anyone who is interested to have a delightful agra tour. Thanks !

Great tour company highly recommended
Vivek took us to the Chandni Chowk market for the most delicious food tour! He knew right where to take us in the bustling market. We took a rickshaw for part of the tour and then the car with an excellent driver (Ram) was waiting for us when we exited the market. Everything was well organized and we even received a recipe book from the Spice Market which I'm excited to use as soon as we get home!
