Hi AshRich

Undoubtedly the Oberoi would provide you with a high quality car and driver - that is their reputation. However, it is much better and cheaper to make direct contact with a tour company who have the same type of reputation in terms of quality product and service in hire cars and drivers. There are some excellent companies referred to in the forums. (Do consider the reliability of the posters) Enjoy your trip. Rajasthan is fabulous.

Hi!

My boyfriend and I went to Rajastan in May this year. We only payed for a driver and did all of the sightseeing on our own. For the palaces and the temples, audioguides are available, but if you feel like having a guide, they charge only about 100-200 rupees at each palace/temple.

We could really recommend the driver we had, Vicky. He was really good at English, very calm and friendly, drove safely and acted more like guide than a driver during our trip recommending restaurants and sights to see (and useful do's and don'ts). He only charged € 380 for 10 days Jodphur-Udaipur-Jaipur-Agra-Delhi which is lower than many others.

I am happy to answer if you have any other questions. Otherwise you can contact him directly via rvicky31 @ yahoo.com

Have fun!!

Karin

I recently did a trip very similar to what you are proposing, in nearly the same order. The Oberoi Raj Villa in Jaipur was by far the best hotel experience I've ever had and I would expect nothing less from the other Oberois.

The driver, however, will be the key to making the whole experience work. I'm sure the Oberoi will arrange something suitable, but I would recommend booking the driver I use every time I am in the area. If he isn't available, I change my itinerary. His name is Raju. You can find him here on TripAdvisor:

tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g304555-d5…

He can accompany you the entire time, which will help make the entire experience smooth and predictable, rare attributes in India.

Thanks for all the replies.

On reflection, the only driver we now need will be from Jaipur > Jodhpur > Udaipur. Umaid Bhawan has quoted Jaipur>Jodhpur INR 15000 (Toyota Innova) and Jodhpur>Udaipur INR 13000 (Toyota Innova) including all taxes.

Delhi > Agra we will use the train for the experience. Agra > Amanbagh > Jaipur will be arranged through Aman.

We will use a hotel car (I've been in contact with each, generally will be a Euro car which will be better than something Asian) and hotel guide the rest of the time. Airport transfers will all be arranged by hotels which is fine.
