Highly recommended to all, we were a group of 3 astro PhD students, and we had a great time. Had our own personal car and driver for the whole trip. All the guides were amazing, our driver was spectacular. They look after you and take you to all the best places/shops without you having to worry about a thing. Hotels were great. As a bonus we wanted to go to the Galtaji Temple (monkey temple) in Jaipur on the last morning, and our driver was very happy to take us there before we headed back to Delhi!
Man, I wish every tour operated this smoothly and worry-free! The guides were fantastic and personable. The locations visited were remarkable. The Taj Mahal, of course, is the highlight. But our family equally enjoyed Agra fort and the elephant ride to Amber fort. We didn't love the hotel in Agra, but The Fern in Jaipur was charming and comfortable. Our driver was fantastic. I love how he treated my children also -- very patient and caring.
The program was excellent. The separate guides at Agra (Mehran), Fatehpur Sikri (Ali), and Jaipur (Deepak) were all great and the driver Rajesh for the 4 days was extremely competent and obliging. I was very gratified to have some add ons to the official program on day 2 in the form of several hours at Keoladeo Nat Park and a visit to the Chand Bowari temple both of which were sensational. Accommodation at the Raj Mahal (Agra) and Fern (Jaipur) was high quality while not being swamped with busloads of tourists. I was very pleased I selected Viator.
Top quality tour... four of us had a private driver (Arif) for the whole tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. All guides were very helpful and knowledgable. It was a great way to get around a large park of India in a short space of time. Our driver Arif also recommened dinner locations so we could see Indian dancing whilst in Jaipur. He was a class act and really made the trip for the 4 of us.
This was a truely memorable trip with excellent guides at each place and our driver Ajmer was brilliant. While I was nervous that the original hotels got changed, I need not have been concerned. In fact the hotel in Jaipur was more central that the original one noted.
I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone.
Our guides were top notch - very experienced and professional. Our driver was excellent. This combination made for an extraordinary experience, and we came away with a deeper understanding of Indian history and culture.
Unforgettable experience. Our driver was great. Our guide in Agra was very knowledgeable as well as our guide in Jaipur where we did most of our shopping (textiles and jewelry) . Be prepared to spend 5+ hours (distance plus traffic) driving 3 of the 4 days between cities. The accommodations provided were average but you don't spent too much time in the room. We would have been lost without our driver and guides. This is the best way to see this amazing area.
Excellent, excellent tour, with very good driver who was fluent in English and took us every where we wanted to go. He was very friendly and helped us all the way. The local guides at both Agra and Jaipur were very good.
Enter your review here.What an exciting drive from Delhi to Agra and Jaipur. We had an excellent driver his name is Prahlad Prasad. it's hair raising to be on the the road in India,but Prahlad Handle it with ease and confidence. Our local guides in Agra and Jaipur were excellent. Mehran Uddin in Agra was so well informed and very accommodating. Our guide in Jaipur was also excellent. I Would definitively recommend taking this tour in the comfort of your own car,driver and tour guides. The only way to go in India John C and Clorinda
I would have to recommend this trip to anyone visting for the first time. All the hassle is taken out and the sights can be enjoyed with no worries about arrangements..
Taj Mahal and Amber Fort are the absolute highlights and will stay in my memory forever. Another, and unexpected, highlight was the traffic. An overwhelming mixture of livestock, millimeter driving and 'ghost-traffic' also made a lasting impression. Only the skills of the very courteous driver prevented a large number of casualties.
On the downside (hence not 5 stars), the hotels (especially the one in Agra) were substandard and the guides insisted on bringing me to shops for the commision part of their (small) income.
But, all-in-all, unforgetable .....
Not quite sure how to rate this tour. We got our money's worth at the Taj Mahal, so the whole trip was worth the time and discomfort of travel. Our car was very small, and for the two of us scrunched in the back seat it was a challenge to keep our spirits up. That said, no one will ever get a better bird's eye view of the REAL countryside and lives of the Indian people. We couldn't stop gawking at the colors- saris, vegetable stands, mustard fields, red stone, white marble, garbage...... and animals-elephants, camels, cows, chickens. dogs, monkeys, water buffalo... and vehicles- tuk tuks, huge loads on little trucks, motorcycles everywhere, little cars, big cars, bicycles........and people everywhere.
Our hotels were disappointing as they were to be 4 star, but in fact were very, very filthy. I wore my flip flops so I could tolerate the shower. I don't know what can be done about this, as the standard in the country is not like our Western standards, but maybe ask for an upgrade to a five star in Agra and in Jaipur.
Our guides were reasonable. Our driver spoke little English, but was very dear, prompt, and agreeable. The tours were priceless. We ended up thrilled with our trip, but paid a price. Ask for a 4 wheel drive vehicle if you need some wiggle room in your car.
We are very glad that we took this tour as it allowed us to see places that we would not have been able to see by ourselves, in such a short time, without a lot of stress! We were looked after the whole time by honest, hard working people and we appreciated the extra efforts they went to regularly.
It is a nice tour with a very good reception of the travel representative in every city you go. Good car and good hotels. The only problem is that the driver is always sleepy and we have to talk to him all the time, otherwise he could sleep driving. It is a very long trip by car and the medium velocity on the road is 50km/h, you really have to be patient.
A very good tour with a personal driver who met us as we arrived off our flight at DEL.He even lent us money to tip the baggage porters until we could get to an ATM. Apart from getting temporarily lost on outskirts of Delhi we couldn't fault him ! Then drove to Agra where he showed us best places for the photos. In Jaipur we were provided with local guide. Hotels were good quality and staff were very welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend this tour.
