I contacted Arti, as i wanted to try a female guide in India. Even though Arti realised we were not visiting Agra, where she was station, she still answered all our queries & help me in the arrangement of the guides at the places we were visiting.
Total we (friend + me) had 4 guides; Arti arrangement was perfect - all the guides were there on time, very knowledgable - answered all our questions - regarding the sites & India in general, even our silly questions :) & patience (we tend to stray when taking pics).
Arti stayed in touch to check that we were enjoying with no hiccups, at each of the places we were staying.
We would like to thank Arti & the guides Shakti, Salim, Ravin & Panchal for making this trip a smooth & wonderful trip..
Arti is a superb guide and she made our visits to Agra and Fatepur Sikri extra special with her knowledge and friendliness. She really enhanced our visit to the Taj Mahal and made it even more special and memorable through her guidance and lovely personality.
Arti was a wonderful guide! We had many guides while we traveled around India and Arti was one of our favorites!!! She is extremely knowledgable and easy to get along with! She was flexible, sweet and a delight to spend the day with. She not only took us to the tourist sites and knew the history of everything that we saw, but she was a great insider in helping us find some shops that we need to go to. I absolutely would not hesitate to recommend her and have kept her card in case anyone I know is going to Agra in the future!
Arti proved herself to be a very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating tour guide. She helped to make our trip to India, and to Agra in patricular a very enjoyable and memorable one. I would most definately recommend Arti as a tour guide to any of my friends who were travelling to Agra and wishing to see the Taj Mahal.
Arti was extremely good at her job, nothing was too much trouble and we had a good laugh as well. She is a very amenable guide and we would not hesitate to recommend her or ask for her again ourselves.
Arti is an extremely personable young lady, very articulate and knowledgable. She enhanced our enjoyment of Agra and the Taj Mahal making our trip one of our most memorable.
We remained in contact and when we revisited Inda we arranged to meet for dinner. We met her husband who generously arranged for us to be dropped off at our hotel afterwords.
She clearly has a loving family and we regularly exchange photographs.
When we return to India we shall make sure we meet up with Arti and her husband again.
Arti left a memorable experience on my daughter and myself during her tour duties with us in New Delhi.
Her friendly dispositon and knowledgeable experience made our tour all the more delightful.
She is a good tour guide and should be given more opportunities to surpass in her field.
My friend, Philip Langford, found out that, my wife and I were traveling to India and recommended Art Singhal, whom he utilized when he travelled there.
I contacted her via e-mails and together we planned our itinerary. New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Udapur.
Since we were travelling for three weeks, it was determined that we would utlize a private car/driver and air transportation to get the most out of our time spendt.
Arti Singhal arranged everthing. We had a wounderful driver, Laloo and an air conditioned vehicle. We had a guide in every city, which I heartly recommend, who were all knowledgeable about their city and hand crafts.
Arti Singhal, herself, gave use the tour of Agra and of course the Taj Mahal. if it was not for her we would probably not think of going to the Taj Mahal at sunrise and sunset for the "experience". She was great!
I can not think of a better guide or service than Arti Singhal, both my wife, Diane and I both remember our trip to India as one of our great highlights of traveling. And Arti, is knowledgeable, courteous, punctual, thoughful and just, a very nice person.
I would hope anyone visiting in India would utlize her service, they will not be disapointed. We were extremely happy with the service she provided and we count, her , Arti, as a friend, now.
