I visited Akbar International on a recent day tour to Agra from Delhi, and as other reviewers have mentioned, my tour guide took me to Akbar International after my visit to the Taj. As others have mentioned, the Akbar visit starts with an interesting demonstration of marble carving and inlaying, then moves to the showroom with large marble items. While those items were very nice, I said they were out of my price range, and then I was shown to other rooms with smaller items (this theme of large items first was repeated later on another tour). There really are a large variety of items as well as a large range in detail at Akbar, so while you can easily spend thousands of dollars on large table tops you can also get very nice marble coasters in the $20-30 range. In my case the salesman noted which design themes I liked and was quite helpful at showing me items that matched my tastes. I was slightly annoyed that my tour dropped me at a shop without asking, but I did buy items for myself and my wife, and for colleagues, so overall I was happy to have visited Akbar International. Just expect it, browse, bargain, and bring home some beautiful souvenirs in your price range.
