    We visited The Taj Mahal in January 2017 and used the services of Mohsin Khan to show us around this wonderful building. He then took us around Agra on a tuc tuc to see the 'street scene' and other places of interest. He was both very knowledgeable and an extremely pleasant personality,giving us a fantastic insight into the past history and the current way of life, including his own personal experiences. If you are considering this same visit, we would highly recommend the services of Mohin Khan. We had quite a few guides on our trip and he was definitely the best.

    My friends and I were lucky enough to have Mohsin Khan as our local tour guide in Agra, India in October 2016.  He not only got us into see the Taj Mahal at sunrise ahead of the crowds but showed us how to capture the best photos while telling us the history of this beautiful architectural wonder.  We also visited Sikandra, Agra Fort, Baby Taj and he made stops for a bit of shopping and other sightseeing activity.  Throughout the two days of touring, Mohsin was helpful, courteous, fun and entertaining as well as very knowledgeable.  His passion for his country and culture was infectious and truly made our visit special.

    This tour was amazing! We really enjoyed getting to know the city, the culture, and seeing the sites. Mohsin was a great ambassador to the city and made us feel very comfortable.

    Mr. Khan  is very knowledgeable with job. The information he gave us about the places we visited made our visit to India interesting and exciting. He is very accommodating and patient as a tour guide.  His personality is superb, the kind of tour guide I want to be with in country that is rich in culture and traditions. If you visit India I would recommend to request Mr. Khan as your tour guide, your vacation will be full of memories and gain a friend.

    In 2015, Mohsin Khan was our guide in Agra and Fatehpur Sikri. Not only was he affable,personable, and very pleasant to be around, he also demonstrated a vastknowledge of the local culture, history, and traditions. We learned a greatdeal and did so in a perfectly pleasant environment provided by Mr. Khan.Because of him, we fell in love with the local lore and even, upon hisrecommendation, obtained several books to further our knowledge, including awonderful saga by Tanushree Podder, “Escape from Harem.” Mr. Khan introduced usto the intricacies of a wonderful local craft, a variation of pietra dura,which the Taj Mahal is famous for. His explanations were always perfectlydetailed and fascinatingly interesting. All in all, we could not have asked fora better guide.
