First trip to India>Private tour or Plan myself


I'm visiting India for the first time and can't decide if I should book a private tour or plan the trip myself. I'm an avid travel and typically don't use travel agencies or book tours, but India is so vast and chaotic I'm wondering if it's best to go the private tour route. My itinerary is this>Delhi>Varanasi>Khajuraho>Agra>Jaipur>Bundi>Jodhpur>Jaipur>Jaisalmer>Udaipur>Pushkar

I will be there Oct. 15 - Nov. 4, including Diwali and Pushkar Camel Fair. Because I'm going to lots of places is it best to have a company handle all my transport from location to location? Thanks in advance for any advice. Namaste!

Suggest you take only transport from travel company. Plan your sight seeing on your own and you can always book hotels on your own. Its always a good idea to use a reputed travel company in india as there are lot of people who can misguide you. Cheers!!

Dear visitors

If you hire reliable and independent chauffeur for your trip of Delhi - agra - and rajasthan then take quote from 3 - 4 reliable services providers before finals your options. Here on this forum normally every DE is belong to travel agents or independent services providers.

I suggest take quote from local DE for better services and quote also affordable. hope it will be help you.
