This tour far surpassed my expectations. Ashish was fantastic! He was well organized, the trip was well thought out and he was a lot of fun. His historical knowledge was incredible, but more interesting were his insights into the local culture and his own personal experiences growing up in India. I really enjoyed getting to know him and having the opportunity to get off the typical tourist track to see the local culture up close and personal. I couldn't recommend this tour more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Kim, thank you so much for such a great review. I am glad that you had an amazing time. Will show you more of my amazing country next time. Namaste!

Ashish is the best! We had agreed on an adjustment to a standard tour as my choice. Ashish willingly accommodated. Everyone talks about the sights, sounds, smells of India. Ashish not only explained many details to my endless questions, he had designed encounters such as the demo of modern day inlaid marble handicraft--just as was done in Taj Mahal 400 yrs ago. Ashish is a enjoyable travel companion for anyone of any age or nationality. You will not regret one moment of the experience as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jackie, I am delighted to see that you had a great experience.
I highly recommend Ashish, our tour guide. He is very nice, good time management, and know a lot of history. He told us all the story of Indian history in an interresting way. He's also very cheerful and get along very well with our group. We were really happy while we were on the tour. It was an impressive trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nara :)

Ashish--super guide! He put together a Delhi itinerary that guaranteed that we had a genuine Indian experience. Everyone warns against street food, but Ashish knew how to give us a safe street-food venture. There is a regular tourist route through Chandni Chowk market . With Ashish, we were able to avoid that entirely and visit the back alleys He took care of every interest beautifully. Ashish is such an interesting person. Getting to know him is great fun--a mix of modern and traditional India.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gail, thank you so much for such a great review. I am delighted that you had such an amazing time here, despite it being your second time in India. Namaste!

At all times Ashish was amazing. His communication skills are excellent and he speaks English perfectly. He is friendly, professional, courteous, respectful, accommodating with a passion for his country. The two day tour was well organised. Ashish is an extremely nice young man and an excellent guide. We felt very comfortable with Ashish. At times he seemed like a close family member and not our guide. We would recommend Ashish S to anyone visiting North India.

The three separate Delhi and Agra tours Ashish lead were wonderful. He was very responsive to our requests prior to and during each tour. He was also very flexible. His depth of knowledge and insight of India far exceeded my expectations for someone his age. He is passionate about his country and he loves to talk about India's past, present, and future. Because of him, i'm leaving India tonight with a different perspective of his country than when I arrived four short days ago.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for all the lovely words Ken. I am so happy that you had a great time here. I will be looking forward to showing you more of this beautiful country in the future. Namaste!

Ashish took us on a two-day tour of Delhi and Agra and did a fantastic job. We had limited time and he was very conscientious of our needs and desires to see certain sites. He communicated quite well and provided a wealth of background information and history that made everything we saw come alive. I really enjoyed his enthusiasm. He truly loves what he does and it shows!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad that you enjoyed my services on the tour. Thank you so much for describing your experience in words. Namaste :)

Ashish was a pleasant, enthusiastic, responsible, well prepared guide. We asked to spend more time at some sites and less time at others and he was prepared to adjust to our needs. I have MS and have limited walking ability. We warned Ashish about my extra needs and he was prepared to take us the easiest ways possible, to help me move my legs, to help hoist me up when necessary. :) We had fun and we were never disappointed. We'd highly recommend this way of touring and especially Ashish!
Carol ClarkeUnited States
Ashish was knowledgeable, personable and professional. He was alert to our interests and even altered the tour to include a wonderful visit to a National Park when he saw our delight in watching birds. His love of Agra was obvious and I will always remember it as the home of the 5 C's - chaotic, confusing, colourful, challenging and captivating! Ashish took care of us wonderfully. The driver of the comfortable car must also be commended for his patience and amazing driving skill. A fabulous tour !

Ashish was a very thorough guide who's primary focus was making sure our experience was rewarding, enjoyable and without hassle. Ashish is very friendly and easy to like which is very important considering you will be spending most of 2 days with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Waggoner, for your comments and review... You and Barbara were one of the most lovely couples I've toured with!!! I will be much looking forward to seeing you people again:-) PS: I realize that your Taj Mahal tickets are left with me, don't worry I'll send these to you!
