was a fantastic travel from delhi to jaipur. perfect organization. i was informed days before the Trip by the company via WhatsApp, which was very good and comfortable way of communication. our driver Jaheer was the best I had in India. he was on time at the Meeting point and informed us via WhatsApp also. he is a absolute safe driver and we really could enjoy the 3 hour Trip from delhi to jaipur and back to delhi. he also suggested a good Restaurant on the way back and brought us there. I can also fully recommend Kumar our Tour Guide. if you have the possibility in getting him as a guide use the chance. he is the most impressive guide I had so far. he knows all about the spots in Jaipur. every question was answered. he gave us very good tips how to handle all the Tourist traps on the way :-) thank you for a very interessting and enjoyable day. with you two guys we had a fantastic and impressive Trip to Jaipur which was full of great impressions. So get them both for your next tour!!!

December 2019 - Janu and his driver were amazing! Everything was organized nicely for us. A great train ride down and back and made sure we were safe and taken care of. The sights we saw were pretty good, although I didn't feel like we needed much time at the fruit and veggie market, but that was OK and they were fairly flexible. I would definitely book Janu again as it was a great and safe experience! Recommended!

I was very well assisted during the tour from scheduling at the hotel to returning from the trip. Both the driver and the guide were extremely professional and attentive. The car was very comfortable. We received all the information about the places, made us comfortable to choose the places visited, and the service was exemplary.

The experience from Delhi to Jaipur has been very long, intense and complete. For those who want to visit Jaipur in one day it is the ideal tour. The tourist guide was very good: very prepared, he explained many goodies and recommended the right places to visit and photograph.

Early departure from Delhi, excellent driver. A guide was waiting in Jaipur. He knew a lot. Good pace.
