Explore some of the most historic areas around Agra from this day tour that departs from Delhi.

What people are saying about Walking Tours in Delhi
The car pick up was on time (actually early) and felt safe getting to Agra. The guide was very informative and explained the history of the Taj Mahal and Agra. He also warned me of the things and people to avoid. Recommend a good lunch place and an optional shopping spot. I would recommend using Keeper as a tour guide for the area.
Our guide Zahid and driver Zahiy showed up right on time at our hotel in the early morning to get up for the early sunrise tour. One thing I really appreciated that is that Zahid knows where to potograph and speak good English. We were dropped off back at hotel for breakfast at 9am before heads out to Agra fort visit. That’s very considerate of them!
We also hire Zahiy for another day of service to Jaipur and he was professional at driving and funny to chat with through out the car ride.
Will recommend anyone for their service in Agra!
We had a fantastic time at the Taj and Red Fort. Our guide Farman was wonderful and able to answer all our questions. We booked late so the only availability was other than English language translators, so even though we wanted an English guide we picked Spanish since my wife speaks it. So we got Farman as our guide and he spoke perfect Spanish but did the tour in English thankfully! We’ve used Klook all over the world and haven’t had a bad experience yet. Highly recommend both this tour and Farman as your guide.
