: Quotes about India :

Mark Twain (American author) - "India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only. "

Max Mueller (German scholar) - "If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India".

Romain Rolland (French scholar) - "If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India. "

A Rough Guide to India - "It is impossible not to be astonished by India. Nowhere on Earth does humanity present itself in such a dizzying, creative burst of cultures and religions, races and tongues. Enriched by successive waves of migration and marauders from distant lands, every one of them left an indelible imprint which was absorbed into the Indian way of life. Every aspect of the country presents itself on a massive, exaggerated scale, worthy in comparison only to the superlative mountains that overshadow it. It is this variety which provides a breathtaking ensemble for experiences that is uniquely Indian. Perhaps the only thing more difficult than to be indifferent to India would be to describe or understand India completely. There are perhaps very few nations in the world with the enormous variety that India has to offer. Modern day India represents the largest democracy in the world with a seamless picture of unity in diversity unparalleled. "

Mohd's tour of Agra was excellent. He knows an incredible amount of history on each location (we toured the Taj, mini Taj, and Agra Fort. He is excited to answer any questions you may have. I would highly recommend Mohd as a tour guide for your trip to Agra!

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks.

5 stars Ken S. 21 Apr 2013

Mohd was an excellent tour guide. We toured the Taj, mini-Taj (which is more impressive than the Taj in its fine details as opposed to the scale of the Taj), and the Agra fort. I am definately glad that I retained a guide- it made navigating the sites much easier.

Mohd. knew a large amount of information about the history and architecture of each of the locations. He paced our tour perfectly, I never felt rushed and we moved along at a good pace. He thoughtfully answered all questions

Tour Guide Comment: Many Thanks..Mr.Ken.I hope to see you again in future with your queen..

The tour was enjoyable and conducted in a pleasant and efficient manner. The guide M. Shahnawaz Khan was right on the railway platform when I got off the train. During the day I found him to be knowledgeable and was able to pass the information without overdoing it while touching on historical and cultural aspects as well as anecdotal fun stuff.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks a lot Sir.

5 stars Kristina S. 20 Dec 2011

Mr. Khan was an excellent guide. He is extremely well-educated--knowledgeable about architecture, history, art, etc.--and very personable. He knows short-cuts that allow a tourist to maximize their time in Agra and could answer all our questions about the momuments and the city. Mr. Khan even arranged a safe ride back to Delhi for us when our train was running 5+ hours late due to fog. Overall, he made our visit to Agra a pleasurable and informative experience.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks Ms Kristina. Hope you had a wonderful trip in Agra.

5 stars Ken F. 07 May 2011

In a word, EXCELLENT. We debated on whether to visit Agra Fort and Taj Mahal on our own (with a guidebook and Internet information) or hiring a guide. We are so happy we selected a guide - and specifically Mohd. His knowledge on the sites was excellent and he was able to answer all questions we had. His English was excellent and sense of humor was also a great. I would highly recommend Mohd to others and am already thinking of my next trip (to Jaipur) and using Mohd.

Mohd has boundless enthusiasm for Agra and the sights around. Nothing was too much for him in ensuring the day when smoothly. Upon request he got us to the Taj just after dawn, and ensured that we were able to see all the other sights around Agra and understood their relevance. Mohd is a lovely chap, has good English and we would recommend.
