Thank you to all who planned our wonderful trip to Delhi and Agra,We were staying in Goa as a beach holiday but took a few days to visit other parts of India. Our driver for 3 days was very friendly and courteous. Our guide at the Taj Mahal was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. We had a wee hitch re a flight time but the office in Delhi sorted this out very quickly. The hotels offered in the package were fine but the hotel in Delhi was a bit out of the way but i have already advised Gets holidays. The hotel in Agra was lovely and the view over the Taj mahal amazing, Wish i could return to India. thank you once again."Trip Advisor
