When you meet Bharat in hostel Smyle inn Delhi, he seems like a helpful and nice guy. He shows you that there are no train tickets available and offers a package deal. The deal looks interesting, except we think there are train tickets available and he’s somehow showing you there aren’t any, to convince you to use his service. As soon as you pay, his helpful attitude seems to disappear. We agrees on his service because we wanted less stress after troubles with the visas when we arrived in India, but Bharat gives you extra stress. You can’t reach him very good (and when you reach him he’ll say he’ll call you back, but he don’t) and on WhatsApp messages he rarely responds (and if he responds the answers are incomplete and short). Also, at every hotel we arrived they asked for the vouchers that bharat should have wrote, but he didn’t do that. So every time we needed to explain the situation and call bharat to smoothen things out. Besides the problems with the communication and the vouchers, we had some more troubles: - we arrived in Varanasi in the middle of the night and Bharat promised that he already contacted the hotel and we could check in, but that was not the case so in the end we waited for 30 minutes in a pitch black street before they gave us a room - the room in Varanasi was really dirty (had dirty bed linen and cigarettes in the floor of the hotel room) and they didn’t serve the promised breakfast. When we called Bharat that we wanted to change hotel (because upfront he said he had contact with at least 10 hotels in every city, so changing won’t be a problem), he ignored our request and in the end we had to stay in this horrible hotel for 3 nights - from Udaipur to jodhpur we needed to take a bus and that one should leave at 3am, but bharat at first said we needed to pay for the room ourselves because waiting on the street till 3 was not his problem. In the end he luckily agreed, but again this situation just added stress. - then we arrived at the bus station and found out that bharat booked tickets the wrong way around, from jodhpur to Udaipur. Luckily the driver was nice and took us with him on the bus, because bharat wasn’t reachable. - the hotel in jaisalmer didn’t receive the money from bharat, so we had to call him several times because the hotel said that otherwise we needed to pay. In the end we at first wanted to give bharat 1 star, but then we thought about the fact that despite the stress; he gave us the route/trip that we wanted. Also, he gave us 3 really good hotels, 3 where average (good rooms, but bad location) and 2 are really bad. So in the end we decided to give him 2 stars. We wouldn’t recommend his services, as you can imagine.

We went to India with a group of friends. But the agency was not good. The guide that was sent with the Group for Agra and Jaipur was a boy and he didnt know much about tourism. The driver sleep in the highway and every one in the van get scared. The level oh hotel and restaurants was terrible. The hotel in Jaipur was in a terrible neiborhood. There are several hotels in good Neiborhoods in the centre of cit, but the standard of the hotels choosen by the agency is terrible. Some of the points of interest was left behind and instead the travel agency bring the group in stores to buy itens with high prices. The restaurants are also terrible. We asked to bring us in malls with ocidental foods and just in the last day, they bring us in a decent mall. I do not recommend the agency for India tours.

In a nutshell: excellent! Harish and his team are great. They are always pleased and ready to help. Harish gave us so many pieces of advice that we will never forget our stay in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. He organised everything in a perfect way. Highly recommended.

I stayed at smyle inn, Delhi last year and Harish arranged rail tickets efficiently and with reasonable commission. Planning a trip to Odisha but not staying in the hotel I contacted Harish again. He was able to arrange train tickets in advance, kept me up to date with the progress and of course, provided the tickets on time. No hesitation in recommending him to anyone and in future visits to India he's on my email list

I normally travel independently and was a first reluctant to arrange a driver-led tour. However, there's no doubt I was able to fit more in with a car and driver compared to organising my own train/bus travel. This is important as the distances between the places to visit in Rajasthan are often 300km or more, and trains and buses can be unreliable and have inconvenient and often very early start times. The tour was organised through the travel agency at the Smyle Inn, New Delhi. The agent was amazingly efficient; first he suggested a route; then he booked the tour and driver, all within one hour, including full paperwork. He also helped me with train, bus and air tickets for after my car tour. Tips: 1. Make sure you get on with your driver before you pay for the tour. I suggest you book your driver for one of their standard 8-hour tours of Delhi. After that, you'll know if they're someone you'll be happy to travel with - you'll be with them for a long time. 2. Make sure your driver speaks your language sufficiently well. A lot of people do these car-based tours and in speaking to them my experience was that those who could communicate clearly with their driver had a better time. Indeed, some people came to consider their driver a trusted friend. Unfortunately, my driver could not speak my language other than the basics and just a little more, and this affected my enjoyment of the tour. 3. The company will arrange your hotel accommodation, which is useful as they know places that are central to the town where you are visiting. However, the driver will book you in places where they can stay as well, usually in a dormitory in the basement, and probably for free and this will influence where they take you. I had expected the company/driver to negotiate the rate but that was not the case. After a couple of hotels I realised it was up to me to negotiate and from that point I quickly negotiated a substantial reduction. 4. Before agreeing to a hotel stay make sure you see the room. It can often be very different to the standard of the reception area. 5. Make sure your driver has actually called ahead and reserved a room. My driver did not do that and on one occasion we arrived at "our" hotel only to find it fully booked. This was in a remote country area and there was only one other hotel, which was much more expensive and I had no option other than to agree to pay. 6. Finally on hotels, at the beginning of your tour agree with your driver the hotel room rate you wish to pay. He will take you to a hotel that fits your budget. A cheap hotel will normally be 1200 rupees (very basic, probably not very smart and maybe a bit grim). A mid-price hotel will typically be 2000-2500 rupees (generally good facilities, clean but perhaps a little tired decor). A quality hotel will typically be 3000+ rupees - this would have excellent facilities, be clean and modern. 7. My final tip is to be firm with your driver. He will take you to shops/factories for jewelry, tailors, artists, marble stores, carpet shops, spice merchants and even an elephant ride venue and he'll say there's no pressure to buy. But then you'll be sitting with the owner of the store and they'll press you. I don't know, but I believe the driver gets commission on any sales, which would explain why there was a frosty atmosphere between us after we'd been to a carpet manufacturers and I'd not bought a carpet. All tour companies are the same - they'll all take you to these places unless you tell them not to, and stick to it. Most people I spoke with were very positive about booking a car tour and in Rajasthan I'd also recommend it, with the lessons I learned listed above.
