I've had an obsession with the History of my city for as long as I can remember. After studying schools I decided to give the city tour in 2012. Since then I have been working as a tour guide and never looked back! I love doing what I do and being able to share my knowledge and passion with people from all different backgrounds and places. My favorite part of being a tour guide is being able to show all the hidden gems, secrets, and anecdotes that make the Eternal City even more magical to experience. I also co-own and manage a tourist agency here in Agra, offering a wide variety of tours and experiences throughout the city and beyond! In my free time you'll catch me traveling and of course, doing what we in India do best.

Amir met us at Shah Jahan Garden. He took us from Red Fort past Taj Mahal and to Mankameshwar Temple in Old Agra. A your of the bazaar. Had a depth of information about the age and construction of buildings, spices, ornaments, sweets, people and foods on the street. We went past Jama Masjid and to two craft stores which practiced artistry during the Mughal period. One featured genuine marble construction with semi precious gems and the other is hard to describe and could only be experienced. The tour was conducted by rickshaw and finally Aamir recommended a restaurant for dinner

Llegamos muy tarde al tour y Daniyal nos esperó pacientemente pero por esto tuvimos que ir más rápido de lo previsto y no tuvimos tantas explicaciones como nos hubiese gustado. Daniyal respondió nuestras preguntas y nos hizo probar un postre típico muy bueno

The tour was okish, the spots were very interesting and quite cool but unfortunately Daniyal didn’t have a great attitude. He started to buy things for us and we felt uncomfortable. We didn’t like it also because he didn’t ask us if we were ok with that. At the end of the tour he asked for more money compare to the one we gave him. It was a very unpleasant situation. He repeated more than once couple of informations just because we didn’t record him and he wanted to be recorded. The all tour was very weird. Not sure I would do it again.
