What an amazing way to spend my one day in New Delhi! I had such an amazing experience with Ashok's Taxi Tour, being driven around by Ashok himself! I encourage everyone to seriously consider Ashok's team for your Delhi tours!

Coming from New York City, I only had one full day to tour in Delhi and was very skeptical about booking a taxi service at first. I had no intention of taking the train or other public transportation methods, but I had heard horrific stories from friends and family who had visited Delhi in the past and experienced unimaginable scams from many people pretending to be affiliated with Taj Mahal / Indian government / city official / etc. Due to all these past stories, I was very hesitant to book anything in Delhi and even considered cancelling my plans to visit the Taj Mahal. However, knowing there was no way I could travel through India and not see the Taj Mahal, I spent countless hours reading reviews and researching various taxi tour companies. After reading hundreds of positive reviews about Ashok's Taxi Tours via this guestbook and trip advisor, I decided to give it a try and hope for the best.

After submitting my booking inquiry mid-day Eastern time in New York, I was pleasantly surprised and shocked to see a formal response in less than 15 minutes, with tour options of Agra (Taj Mahal, Baby Taj, Agra Fort, Tombs) for a reasonable price as well as details and responses to other questions I had. Before formally booking, I asked more additional questions trying to plan my trip as well as gather more information about the taxi tour. Ashok and his team replied with great details in the way that I wanted, and they even accommodated my request to start my day even earlier than normal tour hours and explained the tips and suggestions regarding my schedule overall.

On the day of my trip, July 11, 2015, Ashok was waiting at my hotel parking lot before my requested 6:30 am pickup time, provided cold water, reading material to help prepare for the tour, etc. One specific thing that I truly appreciated above others, was that he was extremely detailed and informative about watching out for scams and frauds which is very common around the Taj Mahal. Everything he warned me about did occur, and I was 100% ready to be safe and not be scammed financially. Despite touring the Taj Mahal by myself, I felt so comfortable and prepared because of all the information Ashok provided. On the way back home, it started pouring and it was such a crazy downpour, but Ashok made me feel completely safe and comfortable even to a point that I took a nice nap in the backseat suffering from jetlag.

Not once did Ashok pester me for payment, and in the end, the final price was exactly what was stated from the start, and there was no push to sell more services, collect additional money from tolls, no unwanted trips to their friends' stores, etc.

Ashok went above and beyond in meeting all of my travel needs for my Agra full day tour, and I am so grateful to have been able to spend my one day in Delhi with Ashok. I will definitely be recommending Ashok to future travelling friends and family, and to whoever reads this guestbook looking to hear personal stories and experiences from a fellow skeptical traveler such as myself.

Thank you Ashok and I will certainly be booking your team's services when I return to Delhi or whenever my friends or family visit! =)
