Need a guide for Walking Tour of Agra - 2 hours

We will be in Agra around Nov and are interested in hiring a guide for a 2 Hr-ish walk of the old town. I have been reading about some guided tours online but they seem very pricey to us. Is there a way to hire a guide who is familiar with Old Agra for 2 hours. Appreciate any suggestions you can provide.

You can hire any local guide from Agra to take you to old city. Someone living in Agra knows the places for sure. That is the cheapest way to visit old city area. He/she can help you finding a way to different parts and can give information about the places you are walking. This, you can club with your sightseeing tour meaning ask for price for taj + fort + old city walk.

However, if you really want to know about the glorious past of the city, its charm, the lifestyle of the people and other aspects of life of the common people then you would require someone who can take you back in time. Its not about just walking on the streets, its about recreating the auro of the city which was once among the biggest city in the world.

If you really want to experience the real life of this city, better hire a local based tour guide who will give you the detailed information about this city and monuments. As many Old Mughal time markets (Bazaars) you can explore and taste some local famous cuisines by walking guided tour in Agra.
