My sister and I went on a short cultural tour of Agra which lasted into the evening. It was two hours and we saw the old British rail station from 1870, a mosque built by a daughter of a sultan, and the women’s market and one of our favorites was seeing people give offerings at a Hindu temple. We also bought some spices and were introduced to essential oils. It was a very good experience and Arif obviously enjoys his role of showing his city. We highly recommend this tour. EJ.

Great tour by Arif! Loved his stories about the history, the architecture through the ages, and walking through the market Streets with a focus on how people live today in Agra. What does delight to have a non-touristy tour where we were some of the only non-native people there! Highly recommend this tour!

The tour started out great. Arif showed us exactly where to meet him on WhatsApp. We were met by a professional man named Arif. He was so well spoken in English and so knowledgeable about the City of Agra. You could tell he loves sharing his knowledge of Agra. The tour starts out at the Agra Fort Railway Station, then winds it’s way through the narrow streets and alleys of Old Agra, ending up in the spice market. Arif pointed out all the different eras of architecture as we walked through the streets. Arif was more than happy answering any and all questions we had. It was an enjoyable 2 hour tour. Thank you Arif. We will recommend this tour to family and friends.

We called Arif a day before we arrived in Agra to ask him if we could meet for the short walk in the old city tour as well as for the food tour. In the end we combined the two tours and it was great! When we Meg Arif was as if we were meeting a friend! You can get lost in his stories, he puts everything into perspective and it was a pleasure to spend an evenin with him! On top of that, the following day and after our visit to the Taj Mahal, we found out that our train to Jaipur was delayed by 8 hours... We called Arif and he very kindly and fast arranged a car to drive us to Jaipur! Having travelled around the world, we are looking for tour guides that will not be focused on the touristic "lunches", "souvenir shops" and "company budgets", but rather on the conveying the real feel of the visited place. Arif definitely delivers that and we would highly recommend his tours to anyone who would like to visit Agra!
