⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kamran(guide) and Vinod (driver) we’re both terrific and very professional throughout the day. Kamaran is very knowledgeable on the history, very friendly and kind. He was always happy for us to take pictures and also helped move some people out the way to get clean pictures of the architecture. He also took some lovely photos of me and my partner too. Our driver Vinod, picked us up from our hotel. And dropped us at the front of all the spots for the best views. He was very polite and a great driver too. Would highly recommend this team to anyone visiting the area. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Excellent guided tour with the best suggestions for photography spots. Very kind guide (Kamran) and driver (Vinod) , who were patient enough to let us take tons of photos and videos for our Instagram and YouTube. Loved the pace, service, and stress free experience. Cruised thru ticket lines and immense help with carrying our stuff. The ride was extra comfortable. Highly recommend!! Would give a 10 star rating if I could.

Very nice and professional driver and guide who knew many great photo spots and was very knowledgeable about the history of the places we went to and local culture. Traveling alone as a female, I never felt uncomfortable. Let the guide know if you are interested in buying some things, e.g. gemstones, and he will take you to places where you can make verified purchases.

Great tour with Irfan and Rama Singh today, we explored Jaipur high and low starting with the Amer Fort and ending with the monkey palace. It’s great to be able to customise to what you want to see and Ifran offered many more points of interest that were more local and less touristy. We thoroughly enjoyed- thank you!

The activity was well planned & strcutured, Our guide Kamran & the driver took great care of us while the whole activity. I would recommend taking this trip with them.
