5 stars Jerry S. 26 Mar 2019

Rajeev was my guide for 2 days in Agra. His services were outstanding!. Not only did he help us understand Agra but also the same for India of today. His knowledge of Agra's history and culture was that of a professor but presented in a lowkey manner. He was also a very personable and humorous individual. I was thankful that he paid special attention to my wife's needs. Agra is a very special place and Rajeev made it very memorable for us. I would use his services again for India

5 stars Charlotte E. 23 Feb 2019

Rajeev was extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He did everything as planned, perfectly and at all times we felt looked after. Nothing was too much trouble and I could not recommend him enough. He is also an excellent photographer for those holiday pics :)

5 stars Ann C. 19 Feb 2019

I had Rajeev as a guide for two days in Agra. He was really fabulous guide - honest, reliable and knowledgeable. Honestly, I think he is a polymath! He knows about all sorts of things in addition to the culture and history of Agra, as he has degrees in law and chemistry as well as history and tour guiding. He has a great sense of humour and can tell jokes and sing songs as well! I loved the visit to his childhood village. It was really special. Thanks Rajeev for a wonderful two days in Agra.

5 stars Claire P. 06 Feb 2019

Quite simply, Rajeev is an excellent guide and I highly recommend him. He knows so much, nothing is too much trouble and he's utterly reliable. Having a great eye for a memorable photo and a good sense of humour were additional attributes which added happy memories to what was a wonderful trip in Rajasthan earlier this year. Thank you Rajeev!

5 stars Tori G. 03 Feb 2019

What more can I say? Rajeev's reviews all speak for themselves. We travelled to several cities with him and his professional manner and historical knowledge are unsurpassed. He knows endless facts about Indian (and British!) history and culture. Every building we visited was enhanced by this knowledge and I also enjoyed talking to him on our journeys of everyday life in India. We were struck by the wonderful friendliness of the local people, not least Rajeev, who made our trip so memorable.

5 stars David A. 09 Dec 2018

Simply put, Raj was an extraordinary guide. He's passionate and knowledgeable about his city and cares deeply about the experience of his guests. Perhaps even more valuable, however, is he knows where and how to get the photos that matter most. You want a photo that makes it feel like you're all alone at the Taj? Raj is your man. An incredible guy, so happy we found him for our tour.

5 stars Katharine J. G. K. J. G. 02 Oct 2018

Rajeev was an excellent tour guide! I don't think that I could have found a more knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining individual to show me the beautiful Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He was very professional and provided fascinating facts about the sites. I could not recommend Rajeev enough. Oh, and I can't forget to mention he is a wonderful photographer! You'll walk away from a tour with Rajeev with wonderful pictures and a deep knowledge of India's history.

5 stars DELPHINE D. 06 Aug 2018

Rajeev is extremely professional and know so much about all monuments and India. If you want to get detailed that you won't find in book, he is the right guy. He is an excellent photographer. He has a great sense of humour and we were happy to share our culture with him and he did the same. Our daughters(18 and 16) and us love India thanks to him. We learn a lot and never get bored even with jet lag. He also can help you in case of issue or if you need recommendation. Merci beaucoup Rajeev

5 stars Anand G. 07 Jun 2018

Rajeev is a very knowledgeable, trustworthy and knowledgeable guide. He is not only knowledgeable about Agra but he has great knowledge of Indian history, culture and heritage. He gave great suggestions and also arranged an excellent transportation. He is very punctual in communication. Overall he is highly professional. I highly recommend him.

5 stars Vassilios T. 25 Mar 2018

Rajeev was great in preparing a nice itinerary in Agra including Agra Fort, Taj Mahal and Baby Taj. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and we enjoyed the tour with him tremendously. We went to Agra on a same day trip with the Gatimaan Express. Rajeev took care of all the local arrangements, station to station, including the services of a car and driver. Highly recommended!

5 stars Aryan B. 15 Mar 2018

I enjoyed every moment with Rajeev. He was able to answer most of my questions and took some amazing pictures at Taj Mahal. All arrangements were fantastic. I am sure to retain him when I come back with my family. Highly recommended.

5 stars Karen H. 07 Mar 2018

Rajeev toured us around Agra showing a complete understanding not only of the beautiful history of his town. He has a warm sense of humour and knowledge spanning local art, culture and religion. He made us feel completely at ease and his photography skills are outstanding, We have some wonderful memories of our day with him. He makes himself easily available and flexible and nothing is too much trouble. We had some extra time and he took us to places not on our

itinerary at no extra cost

5 stars Emma H. 06 Mar 2018

Rajeev has been the most wonderful host to us in Agra. We felt welcomed with such a friendly atmosphere, incredible flexibility with our every need and a genuine level of care about our experience in his home town. Rajeev has such a warm personality and is a highly motivated guide; he brought the history of Agra Fort to life and his knowledge is astounding. He creates a peaceful environment for you in a chaotic country and is able to pre-empt your needs and lead in every situation. Thank you!

5 stars Thomas P. 15 Feb 2018

Rajeev is an awesome guide. He is full of wonderful information about the sites but also many other topics as well. We learned so much from him and he always made sure we get just the right information. Perhaps a better description than guide is story teller. He made the history come alive. It was as much a pleasure to hear about everything from him as it was to visit and view the sites. He is also an awesome photographer. Highly recommend and you will not regret your decision to engage him.

5 stars Martin B. 14 Sep 2017

Rajeev was the most kind, attentive and informative guide you could ever wish for. His knowledge of India was encyclopaedic. We felt supremely safe at all times, particularly driving around Rajasthan. Our tour included the Real India; villages off the tourist trail where we had the opportunity to meet local people and experience their culture in a very personal way - amazing memories. If you need a guide to take you around Rajasthan, look no further than Rajeev! He is absolutely wonderful.

5 stars Jorge A. C. 27 May 2017

Rajeev is a great guide and an incredible person. He is really knowledgeable and kind. In addition to taking me to the Taj Mahal and telling me all about it, out of my own personal interest, he took me to visit the countryside and some farmers' markets in Agra. I'm extremely grateful to him! Contact him if you want to have a truly unforgettable experience.

5 stars Herbert D. 13 Dec 2016

Thanks Rajeev for making this such a wonderful day for us visiting Taj and fort Agra. Your English is great, your knowledge about history is exceptional. You are also a good photographer and shot our best India photos so far. Thanks a lot also for all the other support you gave and for the fun we had together. 100% recommendation.

5 stars Raya M. 22 Nov 2016

Rajeev is a great guide. He was very accommodating, extremely passionate and knowledgeable. I highly recommend his services. Thank you Rajeev for helping us fall in love with Agra.

5 stars Jan V. D. B. 14 Nov 2016

It was absolutely great to have had a tour with Rajeev. Highly knowledgeable about the history of the area, the economic context, and the fun facts.

Besides that, Rajeev helped us out with our next trip as well. Thanks for the great tour, Rajeev! Hope to meet again.

5 stars Peter S. 04 Jun 2016

Wow, what a stand up guy. Our flight was delayed 8 hours and Rajeev and his driver waited all day in the heat for us to arrive then still drove us from Delhi to Agra arriving at midnight so we could see the Taj. Had to really force him to accept some extra payment for the wait and inconvenience. Did a great job showing us Taj and Agra fort and getting us back to the airport in time for the flight back to USA the next day. Highly recommend.

5 stars Norbert R. 22 Nov 2015

Wonderful experience, best tour guide ever!

Rajeev, a tall and slender man, came to our hotel to pick us up. His English is flawless and very easy to understand.

Right from the get go he immersed us into the Indian world, its history, customs and beliefs. Rajeev is a walking and talking encyclopedia. He touches on all different aspects of life, experiences, political aspects and problems. It was an absolute joy to listen to him. In our many travels, we never had a tour guide who had this exte

5 stars Alisha R. 04 Oct 2015

Having Rajeev as our guide was an absolute godsend! Not only is he prompt, diligent, conscientious, and courteous, he is well educated, possesses a brilliant mind and a keen eye for historical details, which he used to provide one of the most interesting tours for us in Agra. Rajeev also has a wonderful sense of humor -- a huge bonus -- and is more than happy to go above and beyond the expected. We cannot recommend Rajeev highly enough!!!

5 stars Saleem M. 06 Feb 2015

Our tour was excellent. Rajeev our tour guide was very friendly, informative and helped us to see all places in a short period of time. Thank You Rajeev

5 stars Cindy R. 31 Jan 2015

Excellent!!! Wonderful wonderful day spent at Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Barara, President Bill Clinton's adopted village. Tour guide knows everything about India, and pretty much everything else too. Very interesting and informative day! Guide goes way beyond the call of duty to ensure you have a great tour! Very Highly Recommended!

5 stars Alexander V. 06 Jan 2015

Rajeev was an excellent guide and really made the time in Agra unforgettable! We especially enjoyed his photography skills to ensure we could take home the experience and share it with our friends! Again at any time! Highly recommended!

5 stars Marta W. 25 Feb 2014

Rajeev was an absolutely wonderful tour guide! He's so knowledgeable, and his love for and appreciation of the Taj Mahal and its history is palpable. From the moment he picked us up at our hotel, we felt we were in excellent hands, and he provided an overall fabulous experience for us. We would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who is visiting this part of the world!

5 stars Terry B. 13 Feb 2014

It was a pleasure having Rajeev as my guide. I found him to be very knowledgeable and easy going. I especially appreciated his taking me to visit a school in the village where he grew up. Rajeev was very adaptable to my needs. On my next trip to Agra, I am sure to retain his services again.

5 stars Sue F. 10 Dec 2013

Rajeev was an excellent guide and we are delighted to have found him through this website. Our initial correspondence through email was very quick and professional, and he also arranged a car to collect us from Gwalior and take us to Agra. (We used the same driver the following day.) He came to our hotel the night before our guided tour to check what we wanted to do, and then suggested timings for the following day. We spent the morning at the Taj and the afternoon at Fatehpur Sikri. Rajeev's k

5 stars Isaac L. 18 Aug 2013

Rajeev has been excellent from all aspects - knowledge, sincerity, honesty. I don't know what more I can ask for in a guide. When he carry out his job, he does it with passion and will do all he can to protect his guests from scams. With his bringing me to his village was an experience I could never have gotten from any commercialised tour out there.

My trip to India has been a fulfilling one and I found a friend in him. When I go back to Agra again, I will definitely engage his time once mor

5 stars stephanie R. 09 Mar 2013

Rajeev was an excellent tour guide. His contact before hand to plan our day tour of Agra was very good. He was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English. He was genuinely friendly, unlike some guides we have met and even helped us source an Indian power adapter! The driver and car he used were both very good. Overall I recommend him 100%, you will see and learn so much more. He was also an excellent photographer, advising us on where to get the best pictures of the Taj.

5 stars Lisa I. 06 Mar 2013

Rajeev is a wonderful guide, his knowledge is vast. He provides wonderful detail that includes not only historical fact but how history has affected our culture in language, songs and stories. His knowlege spans multiple cultures and mediums which he uses to enrich the tours. When I return to India I will definitely contact Rajeev for another tour.

5 stars Anshul G. 31 Dec 2012

Having a guide like Rajeev really enhances the entire experience of visiting a place like Agra. With Rajeev, you are not just looking at the monuments with someone simply giving a narration on the structures, which perhaps any guide can do. You get a holistic picture of the history, culture, politics, arts, and architecture of the period when these were built. We were extremely impressed with his knowledge and enthusiasm, and highly recommend him.

5 stars Matthew M. 05 Nov 2012

Rajeev gave me a fantastic tour of Agra. He has an outstanding knowledge of the local sights, and provided additional flavour at each - whether it was a detailed history, a poem, or lyrics from a relevant song. If there is something to share about a particular monument, Rajeev knows it. I highly recommend him.

5 stars geert V. 23 Sep 2012

We had the pleasure of meeting Rajeev last September. He was punctual and polite and accomodating to the different places that we wanted to go. Rajeev knew any questions we had about the Taj Mahal. He knew how to work a camera and got us many "professional" shots that we could never have got on our own. It was my birthday and he took us home to meet his family, and they bought me a cake! He also took us past a market in Agra that I wanted to see. Do not hesitate to book this guide.

5 stars Strahinja V. 24 Mar 2012

Mr. Rajeev Sikarwar help to make my trip to India such a memorable one. That 1 days in Agra was a dream for me because of that fantastic guide. He is very honest, committed and caring with a deep knowledge of the culture and history of India. I highly recommend him and I will attest to his honesty, trustworthiness and professionalism. He is excellent representative of his country. I had a fantastic trip and hope to be back again one day in the not too distant future with his services.

5 stars Jocelyn A. 07 Feb 2012

Rajeev is excellent. He had arranged for a car and driver for my husband. Rajeev is very knowledge and excellent as a guide, in short, perfect!

5 stars Dennis D. 29 Aug 2011

I assume 5 is excellent. Rajeev was an extraordinary guide as he went beyond expectations to help me with booking guides in other cities and arranging for a driver and train tickets. He also showed me places beyond where tourists normally visit, such as his family village outside Agra. Also, he was very knowledgable on the history of various sites and how things evolved to where they are today. I highly recommend Rajeev. Namaste

Tour Guide Comment: Sir, Many thanks for your visit and your kind recommendation. Highly appreciated. Aloha/Namaste
