Overall rating

4.3 / 5

It was a great experience, nothing unnecessary, no shops and lunches (just when we felt really hungry we asked our driver to find something for us and he found a really tasty and cheap cafe). Several more words about the driver. He was the best ever! He was really experienced (and fashionable in his multicolored turban))) with a great sense of humor and quite good English. Unfortunately I forgot his name. You do not really need a guide visiting those places, and we were honestly told that. Everything was prepaid, we were given audio guides for Ranakpur. So, it turned to be one of our best tours in India (together with Taj). Ranakpur is for sure a must-see place, an incredible one.

Very good tour to get from A to B. Since there is no direct train route from Udaipur to Jodhpur, we have decided on this and it does not regret the route is beautiful and adventurous at the same time! You make a very beautiful impressive fort and visit a fantastic temple! Our driver was very friendly and showed us a lot of things along the way!
