What you'll do

Welcome to the greatest love story ever written! I will take you through an online walk of history where I'll show you the different parts of the Taj Mahal. Together, we will walk step by step through the journey of the Taj Mahal where I will explain and share the story about the King Shah Jahan who built this phenomenal monument. In addition to this I will show you how many laborers and hard working individuals were involved in completing the structure of this monument.

After, I will lead you to Agra Fort and give you a short account of this spectacular monument. Lastly, our journey will conclude with our virtual visit to the Baby Taj Mahal, which is a blue print of the actual Taj Mahal. At the end of our walk you can ask me any questions you may have about the Indian Culture or any Monuments of India.

I’ve always wanted to visit the Taj Mahal, and with the current travel restrictions in place, this was a great way to tour and learn so much about it. Akashi was very knowledgeable, friendly, and paused for any questions we had. This was a great tour, and the price was well worth it!

This is my 4th and was the best Airbnb/experience I have participated in. First: it was a tour of the Tajmahal. Second: Akash was an awesome host who gave us an inside and outside look and the story of much of the eras of history. And third: the photos and videos were stunningly beautiful! And he went beyond the Tajmahal to show the palace where the king ended his days after being overthrown. Wonderful experience, and we all want to visit in person!

Akash is a qualified tour guide who, in normal times, conducts daily tours at the Taj Mahal and the other sites in Agra. As such, he is imminently qualified to share his knowledge on these AIRBNB virtual tours. As I was the only guest for this virtual tour, it was just like having a private guided tour with a local expert. Akash started the tour with a short video bringing to life the various "gates" such as the royal gate through which guests enter the main grounds of the Taj Mahal. He then uses really good images with notations so that you really understand how to navigate around the Taj Mahal before entering the main mausoleum itself. From his commentary you really get tremendous insights into this amazing building, its architects, the builders and artisans. Of course, not only is the Taj Mahal an amazing edifice, the stories behind its construction are really compelling and gave me a great insight into the Moghul empire, its wealth and its eventual decline with the arrival of the British and the East India Tea Company. Akash was very generous with his time for questions; we overran the time limit as I had so many questions and I really appreciated Akash's patience with me! In summary, a great value tour hosted by a knowledgeable local expert!
