How to beat the queues at the Taj Mahal Dec 30, 2011
Free hint, taught to us by a very nifty Indian tour guide at the Taj Mahal.

If you have a Taj Mahal tour guide he will probably help you with this, otherwise, adapt as appropriate and have a fantastic time!

I was at the Taj Mahal on the 1st January 2010 and it was so busy. The queue was over 3 hours long to get to see the inside. It snaked around this iconic building so many times it was amazing.

The guide told us to wander round while he was queuing, but to try to keep an eye on him. We did, and he was nipping down the queue asking people questions, then finding someone to stay a while and talk with.

Then he did it again, and again, and again, we had so many friends in that queue by the time we reached the doors it was amazing; we smashed the time from around 3 hours to around 40 minutes. Yes, a bit cheeky, but hey, we paid the guide to help us have a fantastic time, and that is what he did!
