You'll likely be approached by several men offering to be your guides. But you really don't need a single guide.

Instead, hire a taxi or autorickshaw each day. Then, at each of the main sites -- the Taj, Itimad's Tomb ("the Baby Taj"), the Red Fort, and Akbar's Tomb -- you will readily find an informed guide who'll accompany you for a pittance.

You can also visit nearby Fatehpur Sikri by hiring a taxi for a half-day.

You might, as well, dispense with guides altogether -- as we did, for the most part -- if you have a good guidebook.
