based on 12 reviews

I suspect many reviews here will rave about the quality of the tour guide and professionalism of the driver (as they should, we had a very pleasant experience in our brief stint of 4 sites). I would like to tell anecdote about our experience. A party member was feeling ill in the morning, we reached out to the local partner and they were very accommodating to a delayed start time. After our tour started they were also accommodating and very friendly when a rest break was needed from the severe heat. We pushed our luck a little too much in the heat (104 F) and our party member succumbed to a fainting spell. The guide and driver were very attentive to her needs and ensured us safe passage back to the hotel, they were everything you could hope for as guests in a foreign country in a scary situation. I would trust them again without a doubt.

I enjoyed the one day (7h) private car tour in the Jaipur city. It is really hot in Jaipur now. Temperature in April is about 42 degree centigrade ( 106 F). Amit contacted me in advance through WhatsApp. Suresh is a very amiable person who drove us to various places and Manoj is a knowledgeable guide for the tour. Manoj also is a very good photographer and he helped us take several snaps. He explained the time calculation using sundial and scales in the observatory which is 300 years old and still the calculation is accurate. Both Suresh and Manoj made our tour enjoyable. Thank you Suresh for providing chilled water after we finished visiting the places in scorching sun. I definitely recommend the private tour with the “Getyourguide.com”. April is not the right time to visit Jaipur, it would be better to come in winter.

This was an incredible day with Hitesh. If you want to see all and more of Jaipur in one day, we definitely recommend this Tuktuk tour. Hitesh is so friendly, well educated and he gives you a personalized, complete and funny tour through the beautiful city of Jaipur and the highlights around it. After this day we felt we have a new friend in India. ... y aparte, Ritesh no solo habla inglés sino también perfectamente español.

I have come to the Pink City on several occasions, it was always with the right time and this time I have spent 7 days in Jaipur visiting with Hitesh and his tuk tuk all the wonderful corners that the city has ... Besides being friendly and helpful, Spanish dominates it perfectly even much better than all the guides I've had in India despite having visited it 8 times. I recommend it to you!!!

A superb day which was adapted to my desires. I was able to see exactly what I wanted with good explanation from my guide. A very nice day !
