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.

I had an amazing experience! Both the driver Manoj and the guide are extraordinary professionals, they were always polite, welcoming, friendly, and so attentive. They did everything they could to please me and make me feel comfortable. I was alone on the tour and they made me feel very safe, I would definitely recommend it. Thank you to all the team involved and an special thank you to Manoj for being such an amazing guy.

We had a fantastic time on this tour. Our driver Jitender was extremely attentive and also showed us places off the beaten track. The local tour guides were knowledgeable and fun, especially in Agra and Pushkar. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Golden Triangle!

It was a well organised nice service, really nice car and help with everything.
