This really was an exceptional trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Our tour was an incredible tailormade, 19 day tour of northern India.

Key to our amazing experience was our incredible driver and guide PRAKASH. Together we covered many thousands of kilometres, taking in Delhi, the major sights of Rajasthan, Agra, Khajuraho and Varanasi.

Prakash got to know us quickly and used his 30+ years experience to anticipate our every need. He knew when we'd seen enough temples and suggested a tiger safari. He knew when we needed a massage. He knew when we needed lunch or a loo stop. He found the best, most knowledgeable and friendly local guides. He really knew what we wanted before we did.

Prakash was extremely courteous, friendly and helpful throughout. Spending nearly three weeks in a car together with a stranger could be difficult, but Prakash quickly became our big brother and travel guru, sharing his knowledge and experience.

The hotels were three star and the beds and bathrooms were always clean and staff extremely helpful.

Considering the extent of our trip and the sights and the mileage covered, this was exceptional value for money and an incredible experience.

Thank you Payless Tours and thank you Prakash. We will be back!!

We (Me, my wife and a daughter of 9 years old) did a beautiful private tour of Royal Rajasthan and Varanasi.
Our driver was Prakash. He has been fantastic, not just a driver.
Very helpful several times, he took care of us all the time.
Payless tours organized everything very well.
I suggest this tour also for family with kids, of course you must to know, every day you spend a lot of time travelling in the car but you can see a lot of things.
I hope to come back in the future

Ps Ask to have Prakash like a driver, he is really professional and friendly

Pay Less Tours India organized the Royal Rajasthan with Veranasi Tour (22 days), with a 3 day add-on trip to Amritsar for my 16 year old grandson and myself that ended on March 11, 2020.
ITINERARY: The very extensive on-line itinerary and tour highlights gave us a great introduction into the most popular sights in these areas. Unfortunately, several of these highlights were not provided. This area received a rating of 4.
TRANSPORTATION: The small cars used by our drivers were clean and tidy and without any problems. The airline travel from Varanasi to New Delhi and from Amritsar to New Delhi was fine with no problems. Rating of 5.
ACCOMMODATIONS / FOOD: Overall, the accommodations were 3 star, as advertised, and the breakfasts were acceptable...with two EXCEPTIONS: We would rate our first hotel, Hotel LaVista in Delhi and the Golden_______B&B in Varanasi below 3 star. Overall, we would give a rating of 4.
DRIVERS/GUIDES: Near the end of our trip, we had 2 drivers that took us around Veranasi and to Amritsar...which consumed just over 4 days. For the bulk of our trip, 20 days, our driver was Sanjay Kumar.
Following are some of the more noteworthy experiences with our DRIVER/GUIDE, SANJAY:
- Either the first or second night in Delhi Sanjay invited us to have dinner at his small apartment where his wife prepared a nice Indian meal.
We were both excited to have this personal experience.
- RECKLESS/AGGRESSIVE DRIVING: The ride to our next destination, Mandawa, was an unforgettable experience! As you may not know, this part of India is full of some roads that are new and many that are in bad condition, are under construction or repair, have numerous detours, pot holes, speed bumps, etc. This didn't stop our driver from speeding as fast as he could, weaving in and out of heavy traffic, jamming on the brakes to avoid an object in the road, and constantly leaning on his horn to pass the vehicle in front of him...even when there was a vehicle on the other side of the road coming at us! There were other unsafe driving actions exhibited throughout our trip.
- IGNORED REQUEST: On 3 separate occasions I asked Sanjay to stop so that I could pick up a loaf of bread. Even though it would not have involved going out of his way, or having him involved in "searching" for this item, he just ignored my request.
- TIP: Payless Tours India guidance made the statement," suggested tip for the driver was $5". Since I wanted to make sure that I set aside enough $ to cover the tips for our drivers/guides, I wrote to the company "....so, if your tour was 20 days, you would tip him $100... is that correct? " The response was "yes.
- "SANJAY'S ANGER: Not too long after this, Sanjay looked me straight in the eye and waving his finger at me, he said, "on Saturday (?) you pay me my tip!" there was absolutely no "suggestion"...it was clearly a DEMAND. I said yes. From this point on, it was obvious that he was unhappy with having us as his client.
- INTIMIDATION: The night before arriving in Veranasi, Sanjay came into the dining room of the hotel where we were staying and having dinner. He sat down across from me and then reached over to take a piece of my pizza...without asking! He then proceeded to talk to my grandson, as if I was not even there. He looked him straight in the eye and started to scribble on a piece of paper the following questions that my grandson needed to answer on TripAdvisor: ( this is a paraphrase of the questions; basically, it was an evaluation of the tour.) *How was the tour? *How was the driver/guide? * How were the hotels/food? * Etc. Sanjay completed his directive with the comment, "say what you like, but a "bad word" will mean I will lose my job!" I pointed out to Sanjay, that I had been on many tours, and there was never a requirement to provide an evaluation directly to the individual providing the service. Evaluations were always provided anonymously to the company. I objected strongly to Sanjay's approach, and pointed out that it was not very professional. He was putting a sixteen-year-old boy on the spot through intimidation.
- DEMANDS LARGER TIP! : Immediately after this, Sanjay got up from the table, and in a loud voice, said to me, "How much was this tour?" I replied, "I don't know" (I, honestly, just didn't remember.) This went on for 3 times, in louder voices. Then Sanjay said, you pay 20% to driver!! This came as quite a shock. After returning home I looked at my bills and I think that our tour came close to $3000. So, I should have paid Sanjay $600...right? With the median income in India around $1600, getting a tip of $600 for 20 days of leading a tour is pretty exorbitant...and his manner was unacceptable and rude! While tempted to pay him $0, I did pay him $250 for all the drivers (double of what was "suggested".)
- LOUD MUSIC: On this trip we frequently traveled long distances where there was no communication from Sanjay for long periods of time. During these times, Sanjay would be listening to Indian music at a loud level. At one time I asked my grandson, Sammy, "don't you find the volume level to be too high?" Then he told me that he did; and when Sanjay stepped out of the car, my grandson turned down the volume! But when Sanjay returned, the volume went back up!
- Based on the totality of Sanjay's actions, many not cited here, I give Sanjay a rating of 1
- TOUR OPERATOR: Prior to going public with my evaluation, I submitted a VERY LONG, HONEST, AND DETAILED DESCRIPTION of what transpired on our tour to Pay Less Tours India with the objective of possibly helping them in maintaining and improving the services that they provide. The manager of the company, Neeraj Sharma, was appreciative of my very detailed review of the tour and especially information on the behavior of the driver, Sanjay. While pointing out that many people have been very happy with Sanjay's service, Neeraj concluded that "apparently, something has changed and we must do something to prevent such situations in the future." Neeraj has been very prompt in responding to my inquiries and to my evaluation. I have confidence that he will do his best to address the problems that I brought to his attention. His company deserves a rating of 5.
- OVERALL RATING: 3 This lower rating is due primarily to the actions and behavior of the principal driver/guide.

I have been in India in the tour of 22 days during february 2018, it was amazing!! I travelled alone and I was complete protect for the tour manager and specially for my driver who was incredible during all the trip!! They put a car for me and another passenger and all the people were at our complete service during all the tour. All locations and hotels were very very good and the services as well. Our driver Prakash Sharma was amazing, he was all the time looking forward for our safety and confort. Thanks a lot for that because he made all easy, nice and specially safe what is really important for woman travelling alone in India. I really enjoyed my time there and I strong recommend this tour for the people (especially women) who travel to India for the first time. I don`t have any doubt that if I have to choose again I will choose this company and I`m totally sure that in my next trip I will use their service again! Thank to all for your kindness and specially thanks Prakash for be so nice, polite and patient with us!!! See you again!! Tatiana from Argentina

I went on this tour after backpacking in India for a while solo and I couldn't be happier that I did. My driver Metu was nice, patient, and entertaining and the tour itself was fascinating. The north of India is less connected by rails then the South side it was very useful to have a driver to help. All hotels arranged were great as were the activities.
