Rizwan is an amazing guide - our group thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. From first contact, he was incredibly responsive, giving us different vehicle options, and even reaching out to modify timing when he found out that the Taj Mahal would have limited hours during our visit. At each monument, he shared deep knowledge, and the flow of his tour reflected the real expertise. Would highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jason, I am so happy that you enjoyed your trip with me. Looking forward to see you soon in future. Regards.

I chose to skip Agra Fort and only visit the Taj, I was still charged the full price of the tour. In addition, my main reason for visiting was to take photos at the Taj Mahal. My previous visit, a professional photographer was arranged for digital images and prints for $15. During my visit with Rizwan, I requested pics ahead of time. They charged me $109 for 2 outfits. I am incredibly upset with the quality of the images. Photos snapped by strangers on my phone were better quality. Total ripoff!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback. I am very sorry that your pictures didn't came out well. I will definitely be taking extra care about this for my future guests. Best regard.

Rizwan did a great job for us... Above and beyond. He even threw a birthday party for my 91 year old mother! I would, of course, highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr Greg.... It was really a pleasure to be with you and your mother. See you soon.

Rizwan was a thoughtful, informative, and gracious tour guide. It's obvious that he is very proud of the heritage in his home town of Agra and his enthusiasm came through on the trip. His English is excellent and he brings professional level photography skills along, even with our iPhone! While it may be possible to visit the Taj Mahal on your own, I can't think of a better way to see this stunning monument—and it IS stunning—and Agra Fort than with Rizwan.

I had a wonderful experience visiting the Taj Mahal with Rizwan and his driver. His depth of knowledge about the site and all things India was truly remarkable. He was was patient and engaging with all my questions and very easy to travel with. In addition to his excellent service as a tour guide, he is also an amazing photographer. The driver was professional and genuinely concerned with my comfort at all times. I had only one day in India and was glad that i could spend it with them!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr Timothy. It was really a pleasure to be with you too and glad that despite all odds (weather and late flight) you managed to visit Taj Mahal.... Regard.

Excellent and insightful tour of Delhi. Rizwan is full of information from all over the country and really knows how to bring it all together to tell a compelling story. The entire family really enjoyed the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your wonderful feedback, really appreciated. Hope that you will be taking a lot of nice memories from India.
Thank you, Rizwan, for an extremely interesting and comprehensive tour of the Taj Mahal! We all learned so much from you - and even though I have been to the Taj Mahal multiple times, you were able to impart many new facts and rectify some of the myths around this stunning edifice. I am very much aware that there is much I haven't seen yet, but on the basis of what I have seen the Taj Mahal does not cease to amaze - it represents absolute perfection at the very height of Mughal architecture!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr Fall.....It was really a pleasure to be with you and kids. Looking forward to see you soon someday.

Our family of 4 was staying in Delhi and we needed to see the Taj Mahal on a day trip. Rizwan' s driver, Rishi, was at our hotel at 6am and had us meeting Rizwan at a hotel in Agra by 8.45am. Rizwan is, simply, a terrific guide and the perfect person to introduce a newcomer to Agra, the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort and some other sights over the course of a full day. After a late lunch we were on the road by 4pm and despite horrible rush hour traffic upon reaching Delhi, back at our hotel by 7pm. A great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr Adams for such wonderful words. Hope to see you soon someday. Have a great year ahead. Regard.
Rizwan's completed my visit of the Taj Mahal and made my experience very special. I asked Rizwan if we could start our tour by sunrise as I read that would be on of the best times of the day to visit and he was happy to. Everything worked out very smoothly the pick up, the drive, the tour itself. Rizwan is a very knowledgable guide and knows a lot of detail, but also can give you a good perspective of the broader context. I enjoyed every minute of his tour. I totally recommend him as a guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for being so appreciative. I was really honored to be your tour guide. Have a safe and wonderful new year. Regard.
