Advance information and communications with Kaimur were very good and all arrangements worked well during the 4/5 day tour. It was my first ever visit to India and Kaimur also arranged to meet me at Delhi Airport, which was reassuring.
Shanoo guided me around Delhi and his knowledge was very extensive. Unexpectedly, I had a different driver, Kaku, for the remainder of the tour but he was good. Driving standards in India are very different to anything in the UK, so it is good to have an experienced ad confident driver.
The guides in Agra and Jaipur were also excellent, especially at the Taj Mahal which I visited at the week-end which is not recommended as, naturally, there are so many Indian visitors there. As a foreigner I was able to by-pass most of the queues, however, so the inconvenience was minimised. Recommended eating places were also good. All the guides were also very competent in taking photos of me in the various attractions, even moving other tourists out of the way, if necessary!
One aspect I wasn't prepared for was the visit to craft centres at the end of most days where, inevitably, there was pressure to buy something. It is quite understandable but unexpected and is just a way of life. Another tip is to always have money (notes) available to tip people at every turn, especially those in uniforms who will pose for photos, with you, for a 'reward'.
Thank you Shanoo and team for all your help.
