Taj Mahal Express
I wanted to let you know that my sister and I really enjoyed our Friendly Planet Taj Mahal Express tour. Our guide, Madan Vishwakarma was excellent...probably the best tour leader I have ever encountered. He tried to accommodate everyone's needs and helped people get to other shopping areas after the daily tour ended. He is proud of his homeland and shows it. Friendly Planet is very lucky to use his services. My sister and I were glad that we purchased the optional tour while in India because Madan showed us places we would not have seen on our own, and he provided lots of information.
