Short Description

Agra was once the capital of Mughal Empire. Since Shah Jahan could not stay in the land after the death of his beloved wife, he shifted the capital to Delhi. Agra is located on the western banks of the river, Yamuna. Agra is about 200 km away from the capital of the country, New Delhi.  Agra is a colourful place. Agra still has the colourful medieval look. The narrow lanes, modern era hustle and local amusement would attract the visitors. With fast trains, it is easier to visit Agra from Delhi. People usually visit Agra for a day or two to enjoy all the attractions. Starting from the local relishing cuisine to Indo-Persian architecture, there are a lot of awe-factors in this land.  Agra Fort is also known as Red Fort in Agra. The original construction of Red Fort in Agra was done by Akbar but every descendant thereafter constructed some new building or palace etc. within it. Therefore, at one single place we observe monuments having been erected by Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan and even Aurangzeb. The fort can be termed a vast museum of buildings wherein each of the Mughal emperors contributed something.

    Having recently used Monks and Monkeys, I had reported that we had a bad experience at one of the hotels booked and had to leave that hotel and find alternate accommodation. It seems that the hotel Blue Bay may have also been misleading Monks and Monkeys in the type of accommodation being provided. Following that I am glad to say that the rest of the hotels were much better and Anju went out of her way to ensure that no further mishaps happened along the route and that our stay in India was an enjoyable one. As I am writing this my parents are still completing the last leg of their journey. . The fact that the MnM kept in touch with us went a long way in providing us the comfort that we needed in a foreign country. Although we were not able to recover the full amount of the accommodation I understand that MnM will ensure that they chance the hotel to recover the remaining funds. If I plan another trip to India I will consider using MnM again especially for the service provided by Anju. A few suggestions is to consider: 1) Ensure that you properly vet the hotels and ensure that hotels are confirmed well in advance 2) Check the journey times between destinations to make sure that misguided tourists (myself included) don't try to pack in too long journeys on one day with too small children. 3) We stayed in many hotels for one night along he route and this did not give enough time to appreciate what each town had, some advise to future travellers. 4) Check the facilities provided by the hotels and advise the client. Many hotels charged rates upto Rs500 for one days internet access. Had I know this I would have purchased a Sim Card to save on roaming rates and hotel internet rates.

I only good experiences from the agency and have recommended Monks & Monkeys Travels to friends who told me they are thinking of visiting India..
