Just returned home after a stunning trip to Agra. Sadly we were only there for a day but made the most of it mainly due to the excellent services of Deepak Sharma. During a two week holiday in Goa we made a dash for Agra for the weekend of the 4th December.
We called upon him at very short notice, and were lucky enough to secure his assistance for a day. Knowledgeable and humorous, his courteous guidance on a whistle stop tour was great fun.
He collected us promptly at dawn from our hotel and took us to the Taj Mahal, carefully setting the context of the area before we entered. If you have not been before, your first sight of the Taj Mahal is absolutely stunning - and to be honest we appreciated all the more for the detailed descriptions and history which Deepak provided.
He then took us around the sites of Agra, including the Red Fort, Baby Taj, and finally the lonely and atmospheric British Cemetery within the Military Cantonment. We finally had a superb meal in the relaxing surroundings of the Riao Restaraunt before Deepak took us to our train.
Thank you Deepak, you helped make a fabulous day extremely special.
