Tour Reviews
  • Christelle

    I had the chance to have Monika as my tour guide while being in Agra and she did not disappoint. Monika is super energetic, very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. She makes things so enjoyable to listen & understand. You surely won't get bored with her.

  • Arun

    We hired Monika for two full days to see Taj, Fatehpur and Agra fort. She was an amazing tour guide! She is so knowledgeable, energetic and engaging! We will definitely book our next tour with her when we return to India. Her explanation of Mughal and Taj's history was exceptionally detailed but understandable. But more importantly she has passion for her profession and for indian history.We were 8 family members and we all loved her. 

  • Karen

    We had a fantastic and truly memorable two days in Agra with Monika. Monika is a brilliant guide. Her English is excellent but more importantly she is a lovely lady being friendly, funny and knowledgeable. She gave us just the right amount of information without overlaoding us with names and dates like other guides in India tended to do. She also picked up  on our interest  in current lives of  locals and happilly talked to us about current customs. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Monika to you. 

  • Rak

    We booked Monika for an evening and morning tour of Agra to see the Taj Mahal. Our choice was based on reviews. We were not disappointed and would highly recommend her to others.

    Monika's communication was prompt and timely as was her advice on planning and what to do to get the most out of the visit.

    Her history and knowledge is outstanding, we had good conversations. Monika's very pleasant and friendly outlook made for a wonderful experience.  We would book her again.

  • R.

    We were very happy with our guide Monika and would highly recommend her to others.  She was knowledable, patient with our questions and really eased our way through the tour of the monuments.She was prompt and courteous.  We appreciated her lunch choice too, wasn’t something we would have ever found on our own.  Learned lots and she gave us time to explore on our own while she patiently waited.

    Monika is a very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. I really enjoyed my time in Agra with her and everything was well planned and Organised. I highly recommend her if you want to explore the Taj city.

  • Anna

    Not only does Monika speak a beautiful English, but you feel, that her profession is her passion. She managed to make history come alive. We had the pleasure to visit Fatehpur Sikri and Agra with her. Monika is knowledgeable, charming and a lot of fun to be with. I wish we could have spent more time with her; I learned a lot, also about modern India and she was definitely the best tour guide of our 3 week trip in India. And since female tour guides seem to be pretty rare in India, it was an exceptional pleasure to listen to a woman's view of things. We loved you Monika ! 

  • Ali

    Yes, I was very happy with Monuka, it was not just a tour guide, she was a sister, helper and great supporter for ne, she gave me a lot information about Agra attractions and supported me for photos and video, if you plan to visit Agra, Monika is your best choice,  thanks Monika

  • Helen

    We only had a very short time to explore The Taj Mahal and as we were two ladies visiting from Australia we sought to have a female guide to join us. Monika was just what we were looking for. She was friendly and warm and very accommodating and at he same time she was incredibly knowledgable about The Taj Mahal and other monuments in Agra. We really enjoyed her company and hope the feeling was mutual! Thanks Monika

  • Simon

    Monika is an excellent guide with great knowledge and extremely friendly.

    We had a great time and I learnt a lot about Agra and the Taj Mahal.

  • Catherine

    Monika was exactly the guide I was looking for! I wanted a woman guide who spoke English, who could tell me about the history and architecture of Agra, especially the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, and would keep me out of the inadvertent trouble that an unknowing woman tourist traveling alone needs to be careful about. Monika is from Agra and is a licensed tour guide. In addition, she has a master's degree in history. She will keep you clear of the scammers, and she will assert your space when it's time to take pictures or stop for a moment to take a closer look at something significant. She also took some of the best pictures of me ever taken - she knows your angles! Also, she is kind and sassy and easy-going. I'll be telling my friends and colleagues to engage Monika if they're looking for a tour guide in North and West India. 

  • Kindra

    Monika was a truly spectacular guide. Having been the Taj twice in the past I wasn’t sure if I would learn anything new but she blew both my and my friend’s expectations out of the water. She knows a TON about the architecture, features, and impressive views of each place and made sure we got to do everything we wanted to, while avoiding the crowds and the heat. She was generous with her time and we will recommend her to anyone and everyone going to Agra - especially other women and solo travelers!

  • Roberta
    It was my good fortune to spend a couple of days in and around Agra with Monika Sharma as my guide. While I'm an elderly lady and she's a young woman, we hd an instant rapport. I thoroughly enjoyed her company. She's very personable, has a playful sense of humor, and speaks good English She was extremely knowledgeable about the places we visited and eagerly shared that knowledge. She made sure we accomplished everything on my wish list. She worked well with my driver so the car was always where and when we needed it. I'm a keen photographer and she made sure I got the best angles. She also could handle a camera, so I'm even in some of the photos. When I returned home I was able to recommend her to a friend who was equally pleased. We've stayed in contact through e-mail.
  • Mike
    I visited Agra in December 2013 and had the good fortune to have Monika to be my guide around both the Taj Mahal and Agra fort. As well as being an excellent guide, with a very good knowledge of both sites and their histories, Monika was also good company to be with. If I visit any of the many fabulous sites in India, I would be very happy to have Monika as my guide again and would be happy to recommend her as a guide to any of my friends if they were visiting India.
  • Dorota
    We were in Agra last year and Monika was our guide. One of the best guides I ever had. Fabulous visit to the Taj Majal and she took us to the market in Agra. She was a pleasure to be with and if we are ever in Agra again we will look her up. Highly recommended !
  • Miten
    We visited agra and had Monica show us around Agra in Dec'14. This was the first time my kids were touring around India and it was important that they truly get to understand and appreciate India. The day spent touring Agra was the high point of our visit. Monica was there on time and with her pleasant demeanor and informed advise, allowed us to make the most of our short stay at Agra. Besides giving us the history and highlights of Agra, she also struck a chord with the kids and made it a fun, interesting day for them. It was like touring the city with a long lost friend that you never knew you had. I would highly recommend monica's services for a visit to Agra.
  • Maria
    I hired Monika as a guide in Agra. Her tour of the Taj Mahal was incredible. She knew all the insider tips such as how to avoid the crowds and how to get the best views and photographs. She was pleasant and interesting to talk to, and provided all sorts of insight and suggestions for the rest of my time in India. Will definitely hire her again on my next trip, and have been recommending her to friends and family traveling to India. Make sure to book her on advance though! Word is out on how great of a guide she is, and she's on high demand.
  • S
    Monika is wonderful! She has great tips, is a wonderful communicator and answers questions really well! She's also just, overall, an incredibly sweet person and obviously loves what she does! She's punctual, respectful, flexible, and very knowledgeable! We're lucky to have had her as our guide for Agra!
  • Larry
    We hired Monika to tour Agra and the Taj on two separate times. She is promt, respnsibile, flexible, knowledgeable and will certainly add to your visit of this amazing place. Monika has a wealth of knowledge of both historical and cultural aspects which she easily conveys to her clients. Pleasing, funny, cheerful and competent.! I have no hesitation in highly recommending her. Larry Budzinski Canada
  • Kitty
    Monica is the perfect tour guide. Her English is excellent, she sizes up her clients immediately to determine what will make THEIR day a perfect day, and she is very knowledgeable about the sites and area. In our particular situation, we wanted to see the Taj at sunrise, so she navigated crowds and ticket lines to make sure we were the first people at the gate. We have dozens and dozens of pictures of the Taj with no one in the pictures but our familiy (and of course Monica). Monica also want so far as to follow up on a promise to have a friend send a sketch of the Taj to use back in the States because we could not find one that we liked in the tourist areas. The sketch is framed and is hanging on the wall with other sketchs from around the world and it is one of our favorites. If I could given her six globes as a rating, I would!
