Farid was one of the best your guides I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Our trip started at 6:30am meeting Farid outside the Taj. Throughout our trip to the Taj Mahal, he was courteous and polite. His knowledge was impressive and his storytelling was extremely engaging all throughout the 4 hour tour of the Taj and local workshop. He had amazing photography skills and took some of the best photos I've seen of the Taj (all taken on our phone). I would have hired him on this alone!
He took us to the local workshop where they demonstrated how to make the marble designs in the Taj and there was never any pressure to buy any of their products during this.
I would recommend Farid to anyone who wants to visit Agra and wish we could have had more time with him for the Agra Fort.
Today morning we visit Tajmahal. Such an amazing trip with Mr. Farid Baig he picked us from the hotel and explained each and everything about Taj very interestingly. It was unforgettable and very pleasant due to his guidance and the time of our visit( early morning). Less crowd during that time. So we took many pictures of course with his help. Memorable day
One of my dreams always has been to visit the Taj Mahal and it came thru but little did I knew that the experience will warm my heart forever thanks to the wonderful, knowledgeable private tour guided by Farid. His knowledge, love, passion for what he does transcended to my son, husband, and me. We love history and Farid was there to tell us everything about the places and answered all our never-ending questions. His professionalism was outstanding as well as going out of his way to make our day unforgettable, and when you travel with a teen that is not an easy task to accomplish.
Great photographer too.
We stayed in touch after our trip and when my husband was stuck in India due to Covid I asked for his assistance and he went out of his way to help us. Not only our forever tour guide but our friend too.
Farid is an outstanding tour guide and I highly recommend him. I have traveled all over the world and was a flight attendant so I know what it takes to be excellent at your job. I have never had a tour guide that is so personable, kind, and compassionate like Farid. He took care of everything and would not let us worry about one single detail. I was so impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. He is also a friend for life and checks in on us frequently to see how we are doing and our families. He definitely goes above and beyond any person I have ever met in the travel/tourism industry. You will not regret booking all your tours with Farid.
Farid was a wonderful tour guide. He had a lot of knowledge a went out of his way to make sure we were are comfortable and enjoyed every part of our experience. He is a lovely person with a friendly nature.
I would highly recommend Farid as a tour guide for anyone travelling to Agra, especially to see the Taj Mahal! Farid was our amazing guide in Agra for one day in late February, we were travelling in a small group of 4 people total.
Farid made our experience at Taj Mahal and Agra Fort absolutely incredible! His knowledge and detailed insight into the history of Taj Mahal was amazing; including the Mughal Empire and the construction of the building. I never felt rushed at all throughout the day, Farid showed/told us a lot of history and information we wouldn’t have known if we went in alone.
My experience at the Taj Mahal would not have been the same without the detail and information provided by Farid. Thank you Farid for a great day in Agra, I would highly recommend him to anyone travelling to Agra.
First of all, Farid knows his Agra! Incredible knowledge and a great knack for telling a good story. Not only did he efficiently navigate our small group through massive lines with such ease, but his insight and know how completely made our trip. Worth his weight in gold!!
We are a group of 3 Australians and 1 American in India for business and took a side trip to Delhi/Agra for the weekend. On Saturday we drove out to Agra arriving in the late morning and met Farid there. He greeted us and we headed to the Taj Mahal to begin our adventure in Agra. Farid was an incredible guide! He made sure that we were safe and aware of what to expect throughout the day. During our visit to the Taj, Farid took pictures for us, told some incredible stories, and shared interesting facts about what we were seeing. He has great story telling abilities which definitely makes him a perfect tour guide to have!
After the trip to the Taj, he invited us back to his textile shop for some tea then we made our way to the Handicraft Marble Industries where we were able to view and learn more about the art done in Agra that makes the Taj so special. This was one of my favorite parts!
Farid then took us to a great Indian restaurant for lunch before heading off to Agra fort. The food was very good and Farid was flexible throughout the day with our schedule to make sure it was customized to what we wanted to do.
At agra fort, we walked around and heard stories about the places we were seeing and imagined what it would have been like when it was built. Farid made the trip fun, by giving examples of what it used to be like and showing us things about the fort that we wouldn't have noticed on our own!
Overall I would absolutely recommend Farid to anyone heading to Agra! His knowledge is rich and he was great at answering any questions we had.
The trip would not have been nearly as meaningful or enjoyable without Farid being there. Thank you!
