Owner description: Unseen India, one of the area’s finest travel companies, offers exclusive and exciting tours of India. We provide the discerning tourist a number of options, including excursions to deserts, to wildlife areas, to ancient structures and artifacts, and to our modern cities, but there's more. We are called Unseen India because we offer as a bonus what is often Unseen in India!
Reviewed 17 December 2016

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.

Had a great experience with our 4 drivers. They drove us 1600 km in 6 days, often late at night. Great job! And thanks for the awesome experience.

Make sure to make clear when/how payments will be made if you have a preference - the currency situation will make things difficult for the foreseeable future. They take CC.

My sister and I were a part of a larger tour and found ourselves with a free evening in Jaipur. We signed up for the Private Traditional Dinner with an Indian Family with Unseen India. It was actually at the proprietor's, Bharat's home. His wife and mother made a feast and we had a great evening discussing the food, India, its culture, and monetary policy (the PM had just demonitized the largest rupee denominations). Bharat and his family were welcoming and very interesting. If i find myself back in India, I would be pleased to get back in contact with Bharat!

We used Unseen tours for a 5day/4night tour of Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur.

They are responsive and accommodating and prices are reasonable (we only got driver and guides). Our driver (Satish) was very good, always smiling and was making efforts to ensure our trip was memorable. The guides provided were quite knowledgeable and experienced although do expect your experience to differ from place to place.
Generally when you visit India schedules/timings are quite loose so you need to keep both the tour operator and driver true to the plan they have provided so you don't miss out on anything. Don't expect a clear itinerary every day, this is something that we had to manage ourselves and in many talk to both the operator and driver to make sure we visited what was on our original plan.
Overall we had a very good , unique experience and the people we dealt with were responsive, accommodating just a little less proactive than one might expect.

Unseen India went to extremes to facilitate a smooth journey to India for us. A simple mistake on our part, could have ruined our vacation. They worked with our Camel Safari n drivers to make it a perfect transition. That's service. We toured the Pink City, Raj Palace from Pushkar. This was our dream to see, and they made our dream happen.
