We were very lucky to have found Akhilesh as a tour guide in Khajuraho as it is his home town where he was having a break after spending previous months with large tour groups in Europe. He was our first guide in India and very impressive too. We were met at our hotel and started our tour with a session of meditation in a small temple. What seemed like 5 minutes was actually 40, it was a very spiritual experience for me but maybe less so for my husband. I guess you have to be a little receptive but we are working on it! Akhilesh is a very smart young man both in appearance and also with his knowledge, he is an approved guide by the Ministry of Tourism. He was very informative regarding the history of Khajuraho and also in touch enough to let us enjoy time to ourselves which gave us time to savour the atmosphere and beauty of the temples. Akhilesh was extremely courteous and a very well mannered young man with a good sense of humour. As we were spending 5 weeks touring India, Akhilesh offered his sincere help if we should need him at anytime at all during our stay. Little did he or we realise that we would in fact need him to sort out a transfer from Dehli to Agra when our flight was cancelled from Jabalpur which left us in a bit of a fix. Akhilesh arranged with us by phone for a driver to meet us in Dehli at short notice as we had missed our train connection to Agra,I cannot tell you how relieved we were. All this was done on trust as we had no internet connection and had to pay Akhilesh the next day. He truly is a genuinely kind spirited person and for that alone we were very privileged to have met him. We would recommend him without hesitation. Maybe one day we will meet on a different plane, two spirits aligned instead of one!
