We travelled from the Uk with only a short time available to see Delhi and Agra. Through this forum we made conatct with Sunil Gupta who arranged bespoke travel arrangements for us. He was always prompt with replies and happily answered all my questions and made changes to our itinery until I was 100% happy.
We took a day trip to Agra and were collected promptly by Dev from our hotel. He is an amazingly safe driver and despite a multitude of bizarre experiences on the road to Agra got us there safely andvery comfortably. It was preety cool to sit in the large air conditioned car with water available and be able to take in all the great sights and scenery of India. It was our choice to move straight on to a visit to the Taj Mahal but a refreshment rest was offered. Our guide whisked us through entry procedures and we were soon having our breath taken away by this wonderful building. The guide knew so much about everything, we learnt so much. And he knew how to use my camera and how to get the best photos.We were stunned by the excellent pictures we now have, they really are amazing and its all down to his knowledge of the best places to take them.
We moved on to the Agra fort, which is quite a sight but we cut this short as my Wife was struggling in the heat and a pre-existing condition.
We were whisked away to the home of Yojna, Rajni, Anjana, Anita
and their children Aman, Rohit & Shashank. Here a wonderful meal was prepared for us and we spent a while exchanging knowledge about our different countries and cultures.My Wife took part in the preparation of the meal as she is a 'foodie'.This part of the day wa sgreta fun and we felt genuinely welcomed. It was stressed to me that all the food was prepared in bottled water as they are well aware of the trepidation Westerners have when eating outside of hotels. The food was very enjoyable and healthy.After saying our goodbyes we starte doff back to Delhi. Another journey that left me dunbstruck with the sights and sounds of India. Once again Dev was careful and very safe and we arrived back in Delhi, tired but well worth the trip. During the day Sunil made contact with me to check everything was ok.
I arranged a sightseeing tour of Delhi with Sunil for 2 days later, and was very happy to see Dev arrive to drive us that day. We visited every single sight possible in Delhi and the tour was paced to our arrangements. There was no pressure to do anything we did not want to do. The guide was knowledgable and was good company.Again Sunil made contact to make sure we were enjoying the trip and if we had any problems.
After a hot day sightseeing it was back to the hotel for a sundowner but not before arraning with Sunil for Dev to take us to the airport the following day. By then ,having seen the traffic in Delhi, I did not want anyone but Dev driving us!!
I would recommend Sunil to arrange tours to suit your requirements. The tours are bespoke and nothing is too much trouble or unusual for him.The guide at the Taj made that trip twice as good as we could have hoped and 'my' driver Dev is second to none.
The prices we were quoted matched the prices we paid, no hidden extras or surprises.
