I went on a tour with Amit expecting to see a very interesting side of Agra and Amit showed me just that. Now this was no easy task because I have been going to Agra all my life as it is also my maternal hometown and had seen most of it, but Amit was able to show me sights I had never seen before and didn't expect Agra to have either.
At first impression Agra is a very congested and dirty city and you want to leave as soon as you can see the Taj, but if you can manage to over look the overwhelming lack of cleanliness and congestion and escape the regular Taj and Agra Fort sightseeing then this tour is a must to see the real beating heart of Agra.
The walking tour will take you in the by lanes of Old Agra visiting some temples, markets, residential colonies, some delicious Indian sweet shops and ends at a very interesting church with a Mugal history. The fact that Amit conducts the tour early morning also saves one from most of the chaos that is Old City Agra.
All in all a great experience if you want to go beyond the ordinary but beautiful Taj and Agra Fort sightseeing experience and want to see something exceptional.
