trip to Taj Mahal

We are visiting GOA next March 2013 and would like to visit the Taj/Agra for 2 nights. We are currently dealing with Anil Kumar travel consultant with Holiday India Destination Management PVT Ltd. Has anyone had dealings with this Company. This is the first time we have thought about booking direct. Also should we be booking now or leave it until nearer the time. Or should we wait until we are in GOA and book through a travel firm.

Would be most grateful for any advice............regards Janis.

No idea about Mr. Anil Kumar. On Goa forum there are top questions on right hand top corner. You may find answer to how to organise it yourself.

You should avoid the last week of March as Holi will be celebrated on March27th and this gets quite boiseterous in the Agra area.

Your options would be to to take a train directly to Agra involving an overnight journey or flying to Delhi.

It would probably be better for you take care of this after your arrival in India.

Hi,

Take a flight from Goa to Delhi. Then take Shatabdi Express the fastest train from Delhi to Agra. Stay 1 night in Agra. Next day take same train from Agra to Delhi. If you want to travel by train book well in advance.

hey Janis

India in March 2013 ??? awesome !!!!!!!!

have you ever traveled up in the North of India before????

just thinking if you haven't and are travelling all the way up there from Goa, it might be well worth your while looking at visiting the other destinations on the Golden Triangle as well as Agra for the Taj Mahal
