25 Jan 2013 Our guide Ashish was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and I learnt more in that one day about the Moguls than in my last 4 trips to India. I thank him for making it so easy to understand and to remember. He was cheerful and great company. My husband and I were very impressed with his professionalism and his respectful attitude to the places we visited.
