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.

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 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!!!

The tour is awesome, Jaipur is beautiful. As a private tour, if you have a recommendation or want to change a few things you can. Our guide Hitesh was a really nice guy, funny and informative. We recommend to anyone!

We had a great tour, everything was nicely planned. Our guides provided us with interesting insights and the drivers were also very helpful and reliable. Would definitely recommend this tour!
