Tour Guide - Taj Mahal

Can anyone recommend a good tour guide ? or is it best to find a guide at the taj itself ? I have heard a lot of negative reviews of guides hassling tourists and ripping them off by charging excessive fees.

Mr gauravnikki you should not write phone number of any agent / guide / driver on this forum. Its against the guidelines of TA.

Have recently (november 2013) experienced the best tour of the Taj Mahal with Sandeep Verma ,( his mobile no:+91 9897114363, or email: sunny.manisha@yahoo.co.in)

He's a fully qualified and registered guide who's incredibly knowledgable about the Taj and more importantly knows all the best places away from the crowds.He'll really make your visit memorable.

I just used a fabulous guide named Shailendra from Ecoilyn  Travels based on a recommendation from a friend who was just in India on a  family tour.  They had Shailendra Singh as their private tour guide and we requested him as well.  Shailendra was amazing, a fantastic tour guide. He traveled with the group from Jaipure to Agra to Delhi.  He arranged all flights, hotels and transfers to and from airports.  Also supplied us with a cell phone to use if needed.  He did an amazing job. 

We emailed often to refine out trip and he was extremely responsive …even made a few phone calls to make sure everything was exactly what we wanted. If interested here is his contactshailenderpadampura@gmail.com

Feel free to Private Message me if you have any questions regarding Ecoilyn

Use always Govt. Approved guide by ministry of tourism.govt.of India. Guide provided by travel agents, hotels or shop owner.infact all they try to convance to shopping. ...because they provided by them.
