    The driver was very courteous and prompt and drove very quickly. Be aware that nausea can be a problem if you are prone to motion sickness due to the bumpy roads, frequent direction changes, and quick stops. The hotels were both very nice although the service at the Hilton in Jaipur was not as smooth as the service at the Jaypee Palace in Agra. The local guides were all very knowledgeable. The tours of the local artisans are followed up with sales pitches to buy items made by those same artisans. This has been my experience in other locations and the salesmen were very polite. I found that the prices were higher than stalls on the street but the items were of very high quality. Don’t be afraid to bargain. Be sure to bring some cash not only for the entrance fees but also to tip your guides and driver. The suggested tip was INR500 for a guide and INR1500 for a driver but I tipped extra for the driver and two of the three guides.

Admire this UNESCO World Heritage site and world's tallest minar (tower).

    If at all possible try and request my guide Deepak who went above and beyond any and all requests I made. I am also doing a vBlog/travelogue for college credit, and his knowledge on all the sites visited was beyond compare. I felt safe, he safeguarded me against scams, and actually saved me money I know would have been lost after experiencing Delhi alone the next three days. He was a resourceful tool, protector, and educator that spoke perfect English while also being able to relate to others in several other languages. I have never encountered better, this company has a prized employee, and once again I would stress to anyone reading these reviews to request Deepak. I just took a tour of Fort Kochi and found some of the things he said about typical guides to be true. They send you to their gift shops, and locations they have a cut of investment in instead of protecting the interests of the tourist. Deepak did the exact opposite, shielded me from scams, and showed me deals.

The tour was excellent Ajay our driver was fantastic. He was kind, funny and helpful making sure we got the most from our trip. Our guide was good sharing historical information with us and taking some great photos. At the end of the tour when our guide left we had some spare time so Ajay even drove us to a local market at our request before we left back for Ireland. He really was fantastic, thanks Ajay! If you are in Delhi I 1000% recommend this tour. You see everything worth seeing and can change the tour to suit yourself and it’s upto you if you go into the monuments or not which is great! Thanks guys! Lots of water, and hand sanitizer in the car too

English: We booked the tour on very short notice since we won a day off in Delhi by coincidence. Although it was very late to book, all went absolutely perfect. The Company was in immediate Contact, did all bookings for the monument fees and the driver arrived soon and his drivimg was supersafe and very, very friendly. The guide we had was very motivated and took very good care of us. To make a long story short: Thumbs up! Safe Honest Knowledgeable Motivated Next time im Delhi, we use the same Company for going to TajMahal. Anytime again! Thank you!
