Both my partner and I were introduced to Rafeeq in the early hours of the morning at 6am. And from the start he was polite, hospitable and very accomodating - it was a breath of fresh air compared to other guides we’ve had on our travels. He was very knowledgeable and took incredible photos for us, on our phones. Something that would have cost us a fortune using the professional photographers/hawkers outside the gates. He walked us through even step of the construction of the Taj and knew a phenomenal amount about the histories included. Rafeeq was also more our friend than guide, advising us against purchasing wrong/bad products, as well as directing us through the thousands of people visiting the Taj. Afterwards he took us for a fantastic breakfast at the Marriott where we had an amazing buffet selection. Anyone considering a guide… BOOK RAFEEQ!!! Best guide in Agra by a long shot!

An incredible excursion worth seeing. A must in India. Our guide Manoj was exemplary and really - without exaggerating - a great help. He has a lot of knowledge and always supported us well. I can only recommend this excursion with Manoj to everyone. Always happy to do it again :) Übersetzt mit DeepL (https://www.deepl.com/app/?utm_source=ios&utm_medium=app&utm_campaign=share-translation
