    We had the occasion to meet Ashish during our Northern Indian tour in January, 2020.

    He was an excellent guide, his knowledge is wide and he explained everything in details.

    Thank you again.

  • David

    Ashish spent two days with us in Agra and was an absolute mine of information. He also knew exactly the best places for pictures. I would recount one touring this area to use his services without hesitation. We cannot thank him enough, The Taj Mahal was a much better experience for his guidance. 

  • Martins

    It was my first time in Agra together with my bride. It was my second day in India and I was still surprised with everything that is different from Europe where I come from. Ashish and his incredible style made that day. The incredible style is in everything - the knowledge of the city, the marvelous spots and tiny details that change the big picture. In sensitivity to how we feel and when we need a pause, break or coffee. Many thanks to Ashish and please choose him if you want you experience to be awesome. Special thanks for being an incredible photographer.

    We were lucky enough to have ashish as our tour guide as part of our trip a deal tour. We visited the Taj Mahal at sunrise he was waiting for us when we came down from our room. He was s very friendly guide and felt at ease straight away. Nothing was too hard for him to organise firvus. We decided not to have breakfast at our hotel instead we went to a little sweet shop and experienced the real India. Another request we had was to visit a railway station which we did with no fuss. We also visited the Agra fort which was just stunning. If you would like a wonderful generous and knowledgable tour guide in Agra please lookup ashish you will not be disappointed.

    Ashish was an excellent guide. We used him as part of a Thomson Holidays excursion to the Taj Mahal from Goa. Pleasant and informative, he met us at the hotel on time and showed us round the main attractions in Agra. He sorted out the complicated entrance procedures for the sites so it was no hassle for us. His friendly and informative description of the sites made them much more interesting. The day included a good choice of restaurant for lunch. Can thoroughly recommend.
