Taj Mahal is the most famous attraction of our city, but Agra is a lot more than that, including monuments, food, people and crafts and we make sure you get a flavour of the city and not just a token tour of the most visited monument. We belong to the city and have spent our childhood in the alleys and streets, and we take those who walk with us through the same routes and places that we locals do. We ensure that you feel safe, both physically and emotionally, as you walk with us. We curate and design the experience especially for you based on your interests and needs.

Through life what we cherish the most are stories and memories and we make sure those who walk with us meet the locals and share and exchange stories and memories of their cultures respectively. We believe in genuine, heartfelt connections between people and enjoy honest conversations and so we create space and opportunities for the same for those around us.

Our city is a hotbed of art and handicrafts. We are extremely proud of the hardworking artisans and do all that we can to share their work with the world and support them continue their generations old skill sets. For those interested, there are workshops possible to get a first hand experience of these meditative crafts.

We do not want anyone to back with a limited experience of our city and so for those who cannot afford our walks, we have the option of pay as you wish. All you need to do is to get in touch with us and explain your needs.

Core Values

My city, Agra, is highly under-appreciated, especially the beautiful old city which is dissolving fast. I have been trained as a documentary filmmaker. Hence, I often see what others may easily miss. I want to share with people the joy I have found in each and every aspect of Agra, from food to history to people to its amazing culture” 

– Tahir Ahmed, Founder AHW

Great team with extensive knowledge of Agra After taking this tour, we took several other tours with the same group. All the tours were great. The guides are all super-friendly and helpful. They took us places we would never have found on our own. We got some great items at the shops they took us to as well. Can't recommend checking this group out enough.

Deep learning of the city I had a great time learning about this ancient city in depth with my guide Tahir and a local friend. Tahir knows well the history, the community and the hidden gems in this city that my local friend has no knowledge of. So if you are interested in some in-depth learning of Agra, I bet you have no better alternative source! 🙂

Agra heritage tour with Tahir Tahir is the best ambassador Agra could have hoped for. We went with him on a exploration journey at Taj Mahal; and later the 'Rise of Mughals' tour at Sikandara. One can not miss his command on the language, the history and the understanding of the local culture. He takes us through the Mughal history pages with effortless ease and also makes us think about how the psychology and behaviour of the rulers and the elites remain the same whether we are talking about ancient era or the modern times. His love for Agra, the city he lives in and works in is very obvious in whatever he says and does. I was thinking about Taj and Agra fort as the only places worth visiting in Agra till I met Tahir. He has definitely got us interested in exploring multitude facets that the city has to offer; and we are definitely going there again for a more prolonged stay now. Tahir is a great guide, a great communicator; but most importantly, he is a great human being always ready to help us and make our stay in Agra comfortable. Thank you, Tahir, for helping us get acquainted with the real Agra culture.

Agra 101 was so much fun We met Tahir at the Coral Tree Home Stay and learned about his tours. We had a most interesting day touring old Agra, AKA “The City”. We learned so much and had a most enjoyable afternoon with Tahir. If you like to interact with the locals and have an authentic experience from a knowledgeable and passionate person, you will enjoy this tour. Questions are encouraged and the tour is delivered from the heart. Tahir’s family has lived in Agra forever and he knows the ins and outs of the city. He is an excellent guide and we left feeling like friends. I would most definitely recommend booking a tour with him. If I had another day in Agra, I would!
