Thankfully, we got the train as all others were cancelled due to the Jat Agitation. And I guess that was also the reason why there weren't many passengers in the train, though there were some last minute borders. My wife and daughter went to sleep immediately after they boarded the train.

The last part of our Delhi journey was a trip to Agra where we stayed in the Hotel Howard Plaza - The Fern. As soon as we entered the hotel, I realized that I would love my stay here and was really happy with my decision of paying a few extra hundred bucks to get a really great experience (we...more »

8-9 people were sitting in 6 seats. Very congested. People were even standing. Washroom was dirty. We didn't get tickets in AC hence had to book in second class seating. Overall, terrible experience. We asked TTE to change our seats but he was also not very helpful in this regard.

Firstly the location of the hotel was awesome. It was pretty close to Taj Mahal East Gate (walking distance - 200 metres). Though we did not have food at the hotel, other facilities are very good. We checked in early and were provided a temporary room to keep our luggage as we were in a hurry...more »

I traveled to Agra cantt. By train and i got down at agra cantt then went by taking a taxi towards taj mahal in agra and found there was no facility of drinking water available despite being one of the famous monuments of the world. Visitors should book their entry ticket online for their convenience. Because if you want book the entry ticket then you will have to stay in queue and there will be very crowded, even I had to wait to get around 1 hour because brokers were involved with ticketing executive. Take water bottle and camera with you and visit the wonderful place.

We are on official tour to New Delhi, But we capture some time to see untold beauty of TAJ.

On 2nd Nov morning sharp 9 O'clock we hired a scorpio (black beauty) to see white taj beauty. After journey we express that we should start journey at early morning in 5 0'clock else 6 o'clock.

So cool morning of paharganj streets we are heading to CP, pragati maidan, & noida, then enter into yamuna expressway, so clean highway as we entered all vehicles were fast & heading to chase expressway in so energy.

Whole expressway is divided into four lane(up) right most lane is only to overtake no vehicle is continuous moving into this lane, all are following this lane discipline strictly. Signage shows it in good manners.

Last left lane is to halt & low speed, next to this lane only heavy vehicles are moving, next to this all cars & buses were heading.

After crossing some distances signage shows for "nilgai" We are searching for that but our black beauty is in top gear of speed 80-90km/hr, all have to follow speed limit, signage displaying for speed limit else penalty.

We are stop for parathas on highway, they gives mix parathas with butter & curd, awesome taste, after this tasty parathas, we bought anardana goli to accumulate all that, nice place to for break we sit on charpai & take parathas on wooden plank.

With a break of half an hour, we move again to agra with imagination of beauty of taj.

Again nice road with us, now we enter into agra & toll ends pay 575 for return, here's police checking for entering vehicle, all vehicle penalty for no PUC certificate, so KEEP PUC OF VEHICLE WHILE ENTER INTO AGRA.

When we enter into agra roads were narrow & along with farms, toll given, now feel true indian roads.

We park our black beauty at mandi gate of taj, Around 1 KM premises is far away from taj entrance.

My experience in your flight is Very good and I must appreciate it. I checked into Flight Network with the Better Business Bureau and they have a pretty good reputation. I was also unable to find serious criticism when looking for on-line review chatter about them. So, I called Flight Network and was very surprised to find all of my questions (before booking was made) answered to my satisfaction and that, in fact, this company enjoys a good reputation with the airline that I was hoping to fly with. I had been in the travel business for 17 years so I had a pretty good idea what questions to ask. Tim was more than helpful. In the end, I made the reservation with Tim, received a prompt confirmation of the itinerary, price and e-tickets by email.

So far, things look good and I would heartily recommend Flight Network.
