    Just got home to USA and wanted to thank you Rizwan for everything you did for me, Abby and Deb and the wonderful tour you gave us in Agra.  You helped us out so much in Delhi hooking us up with Amil and Rogish.  We had a wonderful tour of Delhi even though it was our last day and we didn’t have much time.  The tour of the Sikh Temple was a highlight.  Thank you for such a great trip!

    Rizwan was knowledgable, personable, and flexible. The hotel had booked him inadvertently for 6am, however we were ready by 5:15 and hoping for a sunrise tour. The hotel rang him and he arrived right away, provided great information and stories, and answered all of our questions with humor and informative details. 

    He even escorted us to two shops where we were able to observe some of the techniques used in tiles and tapestries from years past at the Taj Mahal. 

    We throughly enjoyed our morning with Rizwan and would highly recommend his services!

    I don't write reviews, and started this whole thing quite hesitant to hire someone in India online all the way from Houston, Texas. But Rizwan not only proved that trusting a stranger can sometimes pay off, by keeping his end of the deal exactly as advertised, including Delhi hotel pickup by a courteous driver. Rizwan went beyond. He connected me to the site, to its history, its essence, its (his) city, and its people. Visitors are in good hands with this gentleman, because you need someone like him to do justice to the magnificence of the Taj Mahal.

    My tour with Rizwan was excellent. Starting from the booking process up until we said good bye. The website was very easy to use and navigte and Rizwan was extrmely prompt with his responses and goes the extra mile to make the trip and tour tailored to the needs of the guest. 

    Needless to say, a very knowledgable tour guide, friendly and has his own unique style of story-telling. I would definitely reccomend his services. The pick up was on-time in a great car. We stuck to the schedule as promised and we had a wonderful day. 

    He is also a fantastic photographer and knows all the best angles!

    A trip to the Taj Mahal is a momentous event.  And to be guided on a tour of the Monument of Love by Mohammed Rizwan, a native of Agra, is to experience a visit that is truly unforgettable. He is a tour guide par excellence, with a knowledge that is deep and nuanced. Rizwan delivers fact and legend in enticing vignettes and stories of the larger than life characters, the Mughal rulers, whose entanglements, habits, desires and idiosyncrasies form a legacy that is breathtaking and surreal. With an intimate knowledge of Agra, Rizwan can tell you the exact time and vantage points from which to view the colors of the Taj Mahal's stunning exterior at various time of day, such a sunrise and sunset. Rizwan is a sophisticated and knowledgeable guide, attuned to his clients and will take every step, without cutting corners, to ensure a memorable and inspiring visit to Agra.

    The Taj Mahal was amazing! Truly, a once in a life time experience for me!! It was made even more spectacular by touring with a wonderful guide. As an Agar native, Rizwan is extremely knowledgeable about the area. After only 5min with him, we could hear the pride he has for his hometown. This personal touch, made the Taj Mahal & the Agar Fort come to life for us. 

  • Gaurav

    This was our third trip to Agra, this time to show our kids the Taj Mahal. This was however by far the best one, thanks to Rizwan.  He made our tour of the Taj Mahal very interesting, keeping the kids enthralled with snippets of fascinating information. He was very patient with the hundreds of questions our group posed, and his passion for his subject came through as he effortlessly addressed a wide range of topics from the dimensions of the marble used, to the best places to grab a mughlai meal. Moreso, Rizwan was extremely flexible with our last minute change of plans, and effortlessly indulged our desire to have a local experience of the city. We truly appreciate the day we spent with him, and would wholeheartedly endorse him to anyone looking to make their Agra holiday memorable!

  • Katie

    My husband and I stayed at the Oberoi Amervilas. We set up a tour guide for our day out in Agra. Thankfully, that tour guide was Rizwan!!! He is a top notch historian that brings history to life. I was enthralled with his telling of the Moghul empire as we traveled from Agra Fort, Baby Taj, and Taj Mahal. He was knowledgeable of the history of the people, the buildings, and the city. He has a way of weaving together the history of the people with the construction of the place. He is also a wonderful photographer and got some great pictures of us throughout our tour. Rizwan is friendly with a lot of the local shop owners and took us to tour the Makrana marble shop, Pashmina shop, and the 3D embroidery shop. Anyone looking for a great and fulfilling tour of Agra set it up with Rizwan! This was a trip of a lifetime made all the more special by having someone like Rizwan be our guide! Thank you!

    We hired Rizwan for a client visit of mine and then did that again and again and again and again. 

    And will do so in future as well.

    A very thorough professional, knows his stuff very very well and we were overwhelmed by his knowledge.

    I stayed at the Oberoi Amervilas. I had asked the hotel to organise my tour guide and had specifically requested Mohammed Rizwan of Elite Solutions based on reviews. I met him in the Lobby at 5:15am and together we took the little buggy to the Taj, which was everything I had hoped it would be and more. At this time of the morning there were only a few visitors and the way the marble glowed with the early morning light was unforgettable.My Rizwan has had the privilege and responsibility to escort many high profile guests. I felt extremely lucky to have been able to have his services. More than anything his guidance allowed me to really experience the Taj Mahal - providing me with enough information to better understand the Taj, while also providing the prompting as well as the quiet to contemplate and experience this monument to love.With a feeling that can only be described as joyous I left the wonderful Taj and went back to the hotel for a delicious breakfast of a paper dosa masala.I hope to come back some day - in the meantime I have my photos and memories.

    I had hired Rizwan for our recent visit to Agra. He was very professional, knew Agra and its history extremely well. Rizwan was like a celebrity in Agra. We thoroughly enjoyed touring the Taj Mahal with him as he had made all prior arrangements for our visit. We were in Agra on a short day trip from Delhi and he managed our time well. We also went to stores, which were not over the top expensive and we got some good deals too.
