I've independently traveled to more than 60 countries, each of which I've contracted with one or more tour companies for anything from a half day snorkel trip to a multi-day desert package. With exception to one tour company in Cuba, I would recommend every tour company I've used based on customer service and value and highly recommend one tour company that surpassed tour company status to the point it felt like I was traveling with family. That exceptional tour company is Bhati Tours.
I experienced Holi with locals randomly all over Jaipur, but it was Bhati Tours' personal experience of Holi with Mr. Ranjeet Singh Bhati's friends and family in his neighborhood that created a lifetime memory. The DJ was amazing and drinks and color packets were abundant, but so was the love and joy. The event felt like a safe place for everyone to interact. There was so much talking and laughing even as dusty color bombs flew through the air and music blared through the speakers. It was like partying with friends and friends of friends and it was simply wonderful.
I only paid for 2 days of Holi festivities and an overnight trip to the Taj Mahal. I happily got that, but I also got an unforgettable experience that goes beyond any conventional rating system. Mr. Bhati is laid back, flexible and entertaining. He also works hard and consistently went the extra mile to ensure satisfaction. I can't count the number of times I was transported or accompanied to restaurants or local merchants outside of our original agreement or how many local drinks and snacks I ate without additional charges. I can't count the number of times he asked if I was ok or what I might need from him or his staff to be better.
I'm sure you'll be satisfied with any decent raked tour company, but how many of those tour operators will you remember their name and actually incorporate them into your story as more than just a driver or tour guide?
