        Day 3 - Jaipur
        Mr Rajish: Tour Guide (Jaipur) Excellent work by Mr Rajish, all the history were briefed very well by him. The Amber Fort was my favorite spot today. The restaurant he suggested to us was also very nice and with a fair price. If you are looking for an informative and friendly casual guide, i really recommend him.

        Amazing Taj Mahal Adventure
        My guide Khalid Ali was very friendly, informative and also made sure I skipped the lines and got to where I needed to go fast and efficiently. He also recommended spots for pictures and was happy to take pictures of me when I requested. The pickup from the hotel and getting into the train was done well and it eliminated any guess work from my part which is what I was looking for which was a seamless experience. Salman was also a great driver.

        Thanks Sujal 🌷
        I visited New Delhi in February 2024. I picked 4 hours tour in the new parts of Delhi. Our tourist guide Sujal was a treasure of information, quick to answer any question in sufficient details. Since I had a recent accident that hurt my foot, Sujal was genuinely very happy to assist me all the time. He was very attentive and caring.

        A day in Agra, Taj and Redfort and more
        This trip has been thought thought we'll by Pioneer from start to finish. Contact with Pioneer before the trip even started was friendly, clear and swift. They puck us from the hotel on time and took us to the train station, walked us to the correct platform waited with us and made sure we were in correct seats. The train journey was comfortable just over 2 hours long. We were met by Shaan our guide for the day at the platform we arrived on, he knew us because they had already sent a photo of us so he could spot us. Warm geeting gave us some tips on what to do and not to do and then took us to the car where we met Parkash our driver for the day. Shaan was a prefect guide keeping us informed all day, taking us to very good photo opportunity spots, even taking photos of us altogether, giving us options on what we wanted to do. Took us for toilet breaks at nice hotels if we needed them. We had lunch at the Hikton double tree which was a welcome break only because of mid day sun. I would recommend you adk for Shaan, because he went above and beyond. The Taj it slef was stunning and no amount of photos will do it justice, if you have the chance once in life take this tour. We had a great time, Shaan and Parkash took us back to the train station, again waited with us at the platform and made sure we were seated on the train and happy before the train left and then back in Delhi the same driver met us on the platform and took us back to the hotel. A long day just over 12 hours from start to finish but a day I won't forget, thank Shaan and Pioneer

        Brilliant day trip to Agra and the Taj Mahal
        We had a brilliant tour to the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and baby Taj today with Shaan (tour guide) and Prakash (driver) from Pioneer Travel. We were in a group of 4, the trip to Agra included pick up from our hotel in Delhi to the railway station, where we the driver guided us onto our seats on the train. Shaan and Prakash met us from the train at Agra and took over the tour from there. Nothing was too much, Prakash presented us with flower garlands which was so thoughtful, made us feel special and scented the car for the whole day. Shaan was extremely courteous and knowledgeable throughout, answering every question we could muster. We decided not to take up the option of a professional photographer at the Taj Mahal hiwever, Shaan was brilliant at recommending the best positions to take photos from and offering to take photos of our party at specific spots so we ended up with a plethera of great photos to back up our memories, most of which look like we had the place to ourselves. We would highly recommend Shaan, Prakash and the team at Pioneer Travel. They were brilliant, they obviously work as a great team and provided an effortless and highly enjoyable experience.

        A perfect day at the Taj Mahal
        As part of our travels in India we wanted to see the Taj Mahal but didn’t want a long drive to get there from Delhi. I found this trip on the express train to Agra had excellent reviews so we booked it. The whole trip was amazing. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the station. We were escorted to our seats on the train to make sure we were happy before leaving Delhi. As soon as we got off the train in Agra our guide Shaan was waiting and he quickly got us through the station into a car driven by Pakrash. First stop was The Taj Mahal and the very knowledgeable Shaan gave us a great tour full of really interesting information. He took some great pictures for us that we will always treasure and he prepared us fully for the Taj Mahal so we could just walk straight in without queuing. Afterwards we went for a lovely lunch at the doubletree by Hilton followed by a tour of the Red Fort (where we were able to skip the long queues and get straight in) and then to see the Baby Taj. We were safely put back on the train from Agra to Delhi and collected outside the train for our trip back to the hotel. This was a perfect day that was a big bucket list tick. I would recommend anyone to visit the Taj this way with the fantastic Shaan and Pakrash, you could not wish for a better guide and driver. Thank you so much for making the day so special

        Pink city experience
        Jaipur one day with Mr Abbas as guide was a great experience, adapted to our necessities and explained all tourism spots. Unfortunately the day started with 20 minutes waiting for a cup of black coffee at Radisson Blu hotel than the elephant ride was not so good. The elephant rider insisted a lot to give him tips and an accident occurred with one tourist. The animals are completely stressed . This attraction must be stopped.

      We booked and paid for the Taj Mahal day tour from Delhi by super fast train online. We were contacted the night before the tour saying that the train was fully booked (after taking our full payment) and offered a full refund or the same trip for the same price but travelling in a SUV (medium size) with the same itinerary. We accepted the change. Whilst our tour guide Nabeel and driver Pankaj were very professional, courteous and knowledgeable we not get the same package as advertised. We did not visit Mehtab Bagh, we did not get an unlimited buffet lunch, we did not get the morning or evening meals.

      However, we did have a very enjoyable day with Nabeel and Pankaj, who we would recommend as an excellent tour guide and driver respectively.

      My wife and I had an amazing day tour of Agra with Hyder Ali as our guide and Salman as our driver. Hyder was very knowledgeable and gave us detailed explanations at the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and the Baby Taj. Both Hyder and Salman were attentive to our needs the whole day and willing to tailor every part of the tour for us. The hotel transfers in Delhi with Arun were also very well handled and he made sure we got on the train and found our seats. Would very highly recommend this tour.

      The day was amazing. Thunderstorms in Delhi but sunshine in Agra. Our drivers and guides were right on time and were there at every connection. Nabeel was our tour guide and he made the experience meaningful. He knows the Taj and its history and answered all our question. Definitely worth it and a great tour team from start to finish
