So many shops the guide took us to that we were rushed at the Agra Fort. you need to say no to your guide for shops if you don't want to go to many.
Excellent day out from Jaipur. Collected at 06.15 giving us a bit of time at the Station to absorb the morning hubbub there, Train CC Chair class very adequate, and morning breakfast too. The pace in Agra is right, slow, it was May and the temperature was 44c, the tour of the Taj Mahal was comprehensive and very informative followed by a very welcome lunch buffet. Tour of Agra Fort in afternoon I think was as good as the Morning what an amazing place. Not to forget the views of the Taj from the back of the Fort in the late afternoon. Train back on time including chicken curry dinner, taxi driver waiting for us and, exhausted back at hotel about 22.00. Great day out, the Train is more relaxed than a road trip.
Disappointing but convenient way to see Taj Mahal and Red Fort from Jaipur. All arrangements work but collection was too esrly for train. Tour company in Agra -Nikita did not know my hotel was only 10 minutes from station so unnecessarily early start to a very long day this could have been easily checked with Google or local taxi company. 2 few sights 2 many visits to carpet factory , jewellery store tapistry and marble inlay factory's. Good demos but too much pressure to buy. Guide Englishs was not adaquate or suited for a well read inquisitive first language English speaker. Only got info at sights not in-betweenand difficulty asking questions as felt he liked to keep to his learned script Was very very repetitive and felt quizzed like child which got irrating. On the other hand When on his own the driver was more chatty and informative and responded to questions better. Got persuaded by guide to take a photography package as told without it I would fail to get good photos. What rubbish. I felt as if the guide thought I was there to take pictures and buy stuff not to learn and experience new things. Lunch limited to spicy food think it was ok. Convenient but disappointed . The tour can be improved.
