We just finished a 16 day private car tour with Unseen India, where they arranged and provided our hotels, car, driver, and city tours. We would definitely hire this company again.
Bharat, the company owner, and Pratap our driver, were wonderful. Here is one example of what good care they took of us when we were under their care. We arrived in India just days after the government changed its currency. As a result, there was no cash to be had anywhere. ATM machines were empty, and the occasional machine that did have money, had hours long lines and limited withdrawals to the equivalent of about 28 USD. Bharat and Pratap saved the day for us, by sharing with us what limited cash they had. In essence, they treated us like visiting family. When money started loosening up near the end our trip, we repaid them. They made sure our needs were met by lending us cash, and taking good care of us when we had no money! I think this says a lot.
Pratap was an excellent driver. He was friendly and eager to please. He cleaned the car daily and was always making sure we had a good time. He kept us on schedule, and if there was anything extra we needed to do or see, he would get us there.
During the course of our 16 day tour, both Bahrat and Pratap invited us into their families' homes for a meal -- hospitality that was above and beyond what we expected, and gave us an intimate look into daily Indian life.
We booked our tour inclusive of car, driver, tours, and hotels. I understand that now you can hire Unseen India simply for your car and driver, and make your own hotel arrangements.
The price for our 16 days was quite reasonable. In fact, we thought it was a great value.
In conclusion, I recommend Unseen India, and we would use them again if we return to India. The photo is of the two of us in the car with our driver, Pratap.
