Our experience at Rita's house was perfect. She and her husband were incredibly warm and welcoming and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable throughout our stay. Rita organized us the driver to go to the Taj Mahal. I would recommended also to have the meals with them, they were delicious. Thank you for sharing the culture of Rajasthan with us. It was very interesting. We really enjoyed to stay host by this family and would always recommend it.
Our experience at this place was beyond what I can describe here. Though we only stayed here for a day (way too short), we felt as if it were 3 days. Because of the warm people, the delicious food and the safety and comfort they offer! Thank you so much for everything!!
Colonel Sharma and Rita were warm and welcoming and did such an amazing job at making us feel like this was our home away from home. They instantly made us part of the family.
The food was absolutely delicious; home-cooked Indian food around a table full of laughter and good conversation. Can't wait to go back!
Rita and her family were the perfect hosts. Their house is really lovely and welcoming, if we ever go back to Agra we hope to stay there again and do Agra more justice by staying a few more nights. Don't miss out on their home cooked meals, as they are the perfect time to get to know these lovely people and have a taste of the indian food culture! Nothing but good vibes here !
We stayed at Col Sharma and Rita's place for two nights and found them to be the best hosts. Before the trip, Rita answered our queries patiently and helped us to arrange transport for our next destination. As hosts, they really took the time out to get to know us, and share personal stories and jokes with us over lunch and dinner. It really felt like we were part of their family (they called us the "naughty boys"!). They even cooked up authentic Indian meals for us that were so delicious! We felt very comfortable at their beautiful home; you can take a warm bath, use their internet wifi and sit around their living room - it really is "a home away from home" (exactly how they wanted us to feel when we were there). If ever we return to Agra, we'll definitely stay with our Indian family once again!
What a I say - The Colonel and his wife Rita are the most brilliant hosts and I truely felt special and the "long lost relative" in their company. Meeting another couple also staying there was a big bonus also. My personal security in a strange (to me) land was attended to at all times and the Colonel also collected me from the railway. Converstions over meals prepared by Rita were fantastic and I can only thank them for their company. This is the best experience I have had in India.
My main goal was to visit the Taj mahal but in the proces i also wanted to visit Miss Rita and the colonel , i wanted to experience Indian livestyle within a family, their house is so welcoming and i liked how its decorated, i want to thank Rita so Much for something she knows what she did for me, thank you is not enough, big hug lillo to the both of you
