My wife and I have recently returned from a 23 day driving tour of Rajasthan, Agra and Delhi. There are many companies and options to choose from when arranging this type of travel but after much research on Tripadvisor and other travel forums we chose to hire an independent private driver.
After arriving in Delhi we chose an anti-clockwise route through Rajasthan that saw us visiting: Mandawa, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Ranakpur, Udaipur, Pushkar and Jaipur before returning to Delhi via Agra. Instead of re-writing a trip report I’ve included the link to our travel blog that covers much of our Rajasthan activities.
I had an Airtel sim card for my iphone which worked very well for about a week. Then when my paperwork got to the government bureaucrats they decided the quality of passport photocopies, extra passport photos, local address provided, etc etc was inadequate, and disconnected my service for the duration. The network service is very good but government protocols are anally retentive.
Recommend you ask your driver our guesthouse to register for your sim card.
I’ll post hotel reviews shortly.
We were very pleased with our driver, Rakesh Yadav. He proved to be a true gentleman, very safe behind the wheel and keen to make our journey comfortable and memorable. I’m very happy to recommend Rakesh to others. He has a website that was designed by another satisfied customer Mike A from Canada.
Rajasthan was everything we expected and much more.
Happy to answer any questions.
