I've got nothing but praise for Mirza - he organized our trip to Agra extremely well, with us having to do pretty much nothing (other than pay him :-) )
It was our guide in Agra - Arther - who made the entire experience, well, interesting. Greatest hits
- An insistence on taking pictures. I mean, I understand that there is an entire category of "checklist tourists" whose aim in life is to have pictures taken of themselves in front of everything. We are *not* them! And despite our repeated insistence, he kept pushing people into "photogenic spots". Urghk.
- Too touchy-feely. In particular, with the women in our group, who, frankly, got quite uncomfortable with the whole thing
- Insistence on visiting Souvenir Emporiums. It didn't matter what we said, he kept pushing jewellers, marble-workers, etc on us, to the point of sheer annoyance.
Bottom line - use Mirza as your organizer, but insist on a guide other than Arther.
(Oh, also, I don't know if it'll help, but you might want to specifically tell Mirza that you're not interested in being carted around to Souvenir Emporiums)
