We started to the Taj Mahal early in the morning along with the guide Jitu where he told us a few interesting things and answered our questions, giving us plenty of time to explore on our own too. After 3 hours of a break we went to Agra Fort. Then the guide took us to an amazing shop where we were shown the local traditional marble and gem stone art. It was a shop but there was no almost no pressure to buy anything, and it was great to see the artisans work on the marble and gems. Then he took us to a place where we had a delicious lunch. It was followed by the Baby Taj and the Mehtab Bagh gardens next, from where we could see the Taj. Jitu was super friendly and very flexible as he took us to many shops! We also had a shopping on different varieties of leather. Then our trip to Taj ended with delicious and tasty tea in a small pot. Thoroughly recommend them!
I have vacationed both with and without tour companies and I must say this has been my favoirite to far. It was the best of both worlds because Kaimur Holidays took care of everything to MY desires. I bought the set sunrise sunset of the Taj group of sights and got to see everything without any waiting in queues or trying to figure out protocols. Samir was fabulous at making sure I didnt worry about anything. This brought me a lot of comfort as a solo woman traveller who only had a few days to see the sights. Samir took amazing pictures and even paid for some things for me when I couldnt get to the ATM I paid him back of course. Then most importantly even though I just bought the Agra day tour I ended up turning it into two days and getting to see Sikri and being picked up and dropped off in Delfi for an EXCELLENT price. They know where to find everything and are very knowledgeable. The food places they take you to are safe according to my still functioning GI system and well rated. My driver Gurmeet was VERY kind, and an excellent driver safe which is hard to be in India, and very timely. He was usually waiting for me to get ready and I never waited for him to arrive. They even sent him my picture so he knew to look for me. If I ever return to India, which I plan to, I will definitely look them up again and have already been telling my friends about them. I really wanted to insights on the Moghul dynasty and architecture and the Agra Fort, and the 'Baby Taj' and the Taj itself along with Sikri are EXCELLENT ways to feel the legacy of the dynasty. I also requested of the company via whatsapp and was able to see the show at the convention center Kalakrit and Samir set that up for me in less than 4 hours. Nothing was missed. My photos were fantastic with just my cell phone. I was telling them they should invest in a nice camera and they could probably add 'pro photographer' to the list of things they offer. It was great to have an affordable few days with this company and I definitely recommend them.
We booked this tour based on the reviews on Viator and were not disappointed. The tour is a great overview of the Taj Mahal and the three other main attractions Red Fort, Baby Taj and Mehtab Bagh/Moonlight Garden. We chose a 5.30am pick up to visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise and were glad to be on a tour. When you are barely awake, it is great to be taken care of buying tickets, standing in the right queue etc. so you can focus on enjoying the site. Our guide was very informative and happily took photos of us on our camera throughout the day. All pick ups were on time. We asked to stop to buy a take away breakfast before heading back to our hotel and the food was very nice. We visited a workshop / shop where we could see how the marble inlay technique is performed, as used in the decorations of the Taj Mahal. The explanations were very interesting. Naturally, we were shown many products for sale, with some sales pressure to buy, but no more than any elsewhere, and we left without buying. We had the option of visiting other shops and markets, but declined as we were not interested. My recommendation to future travellers is to feel free to take your time to take photos and explore further. There is plenty of time in the day to spend as long as you wish to take photos, for example. The guide will wait for you without a problem. Overall, we had a great day and were very happy with our tour.
We did not know what to expect about the tour, but since we touched down Delhi, all was taken care of as our driver picked us up and the journey to Agra started. Our tour guide explained everything very well, answered our questions and knew the places to get nice pictures. It was like a story and we were mesmerised. The driver was also very helpful and every time we got into the car, a cold bottle of water was ready. The place they brought us for lunch was very good too. All in all, we can say that the experience of the Taj Mahal with the guiding of the tour was a magical experience.
The company providing the tour is apparently a young company. Unfortunately I don't have much advice to give them since everything was perfect. Excellent communication before the tour and the day before just to confirm everything, via WhatsApp. The tour guide was really nice and very knowledgeable. The driver also really friendly and relax with his driving style. The car was nice and in an excellent condition. They are very flexible and can tailor the schedule according to your wishes. They also have the option to drive you back and forth from Delhi. In the morning of the tour, I decided to go back to Delhi airport by car in the same afternoon. They had no problem arranging it. The experience was excellent. That tour allows you to truly enjoy the place and what you see. Highly recommended.
I rarely give a perfect score in a review but I've gotta hand it to Shanoo, Astif, and Suneel at Kaimur Holidays. They took wonderful care of me which was especially important since I was touring alone. Their personalized service and attention to detail every step of the way was superb even when I booked the wrong tour at first Shanoo still accommodated above and beyond. Astif my guide was outstanding. He was such a joy to be with for the entire day. His knowledge of the culture and the history was amazing. I was so very pleased. It all began with the driver Suneel be on time, courteous an attentive. Not only that but I got a personal visit and gift from Shanoo the power while at lunch looking to make sure my needs were being met. I was thoroughly impressed. Being the stickler for quality customer service as I am, I would HIGHLY recommend Kaimur Holidays to everyone and will use them again upon my return.
Thank you so much for making my trip quite memorable,
The BEST way to see the Taj! Jitendra Jitu,was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable! While a long day, he was able to make it flow very easily! He's also a GREAT photographer - no need to hire one of the local guys buzzing around, He took incredible pictures of us with our camera!! As with any tour, there are always stops at certain kinds of shops - and he was able to cater to our needs and budget! While the Red Fort and the other locations were awesome, seeing the Taj again at sunset was the highlight of our trip! I can't say enough great things to say about this tour!! Incredibly happy and a GREAT value!
We were greeted bright and early by our tour guide, Sameer Kahn and driver, Deepak to see the Taj Mahal at sunrise. It was an amazing experience and Sameer was very informative on details of the Taj history. We had a fabulous day, sunrise to sunset, and took in many other sites inbetween! Thank you for this great tour and especially for the exceptional services of Sameer Kahn! We highly recommend this tour!
