Even before our trip began- Manoj was amazing to communicate with and plan the specifics of our trip. All while I was in the US and he in India time zone.
Once here, our kind, knowledgable and incredibly skilled driver- Surendra picked us up. He was always on time, was with us from dawn to dusk and did not leave our side until we were checked in comfortably into our hotel. He also picked up snacks and beers for us on the way, making our road trip all the more fun.
Now to the cities and our guides. This trip is perfect if you want a power packed tour of rajasthan in a short time period. We spent a night and half a day in each city, often visiting 2-3 main attractions and ending our day with shopping their world famous arts and handicrafts.
Our tour guides in each city were locals with many generations calling the city home. It showed in their pride for the city and their extensive knowledge of the culture, food(they knew the best spots to eat) and people.
Ask for Ajay in Agra(he’s a great photographer too), Vijay in Jaipur, Mohammad in Bikaner, Padam in Jaisalmer(he gave us a tour of his house!, how the locals live, back streets, does not get better than this) and Praveen in Jodhpur.
All in all, a 10/10 trip. We’re going home with full hearts and bags! 😁 We shopped a lot. Every place is better than the last. We will be back.
