Was ihr unternehmen werdet
PLEASE NOTE: this experience is not actually going to happen from 06:00pm to 12:00am. I had no other option but to select this time slot as I have other tours running on the same day. An hour and a half from the Taj is Agra's version of the Shekhawati havelis. If you haven't been to Rajasthan's famous Shekhawati region for it's havelis then, let me take you to Holipura, a small unbeknownst village which has several 300+ year old havelis owned by the Chaturvedi clan. The Chaturvedi's were rich landlords back in the day but gradually moved away from land ownership and agriculture to government services. Some of these mansions have dilapidated over time while others have 5th-6th generation descendents still living in them. During a walk through the alleys of this clean rural village you will see several artistically made mansions, some interconnected with hallways, indicating that some of the families were related and shared a strong family bond. During the tour, we will also be able to see the insides of some of the havelis owned by locals I personally know and am friends with. Post the haveli tour, we will go on a boat safari on the Chambal river to see it's unique wildlife such as gharials, turtles, migratory birds etc. The river safari is done on motor boats and is absolutely safe with me as your guide. After the 02 hour river safari we will head back to Agra, the same day.
Born in Agra, educated in the Himalayas, USA and Germany, worked on Wall Street, Singapore and Dubai. Moved back to India in 2015 and now have my own travel company focusing on wildlife off-beat experiences in/around Agra. In 2014 I volunteered with the Wildlife Conservation Society in the jungles of South India and am also a naturalist in training. I am very passionate about nature, outdoors, wildlife and lesser known historical places and photography. As I am from Agra, I have strong connections with the locals living in the places we visit. Unlike an outsider, the locals give my guests and I a warm welcome which makes the experience even more personal. For more photos, visit my Instagram handle: @totravelwith
