I'll try to be brief but there is a lot to say. Wife and I wanted to meet our daughter and contacted 6-8 companies for help. Many emails and changes later we chose Travel n Tours India and Ashu for his flexibility, persistence, price, and quality of service via email and phone. We did Delhi, Udaipur, Jodpur, Jaisalmer, Jaipur, Agra, Gwailior, Orcha, Khajuraho, Bandhavgarh, Varanasi, Delhi. Three overnight trains, one day train, one flight at the end back to Delhi from Varanasi, five drivers, comfortable cars, desert overnight, Taj Mahal at dawn, 3 to 4 star hotels (all acceptable, most very nice, but bad service/attitude by managers at Hotel Surya in Varanasi), Spice Paradise in Jodpur (excellent idea), float trip on the Betwa River in Orcha, three tiger safaris (saw one up close, plus saw sloth bear), all the forts, palaces, and temples along the way, bicycling around Khajuraho (best to wait and arrange that rental yourself), morning prayers and rituals of Varanasi. We self-booked Elephantastic in Jaipur. Could have self-booked some more, either hotels or excursions, and saved a few dollars, but we don't regret any of the arrangements Ashu made for us. For the consistency of arrangements, he and his company deserve their fees. Everything on this lengthy, rather complicated trip went as advertised. We were always met upon arrival, could ask drivers to deviate if/as we changed our mind on something, and drivers made sure we were safely in our train cars and helped us with bags and any arrangements we needed before they went on their own way. First day we wanted a phone, so we bought one and Ashu gave us a sim card for the duration. Daughter was in a triple with us or on her own in a hostel, which complication Ashu accepted and coached the drivers on. Ashu checked with the drivers and called us often to ask if everything was OK. Very professional and thorough. Only a couple of times did a driver want to take us to a market or store, but they quickly accepted that we didn't want that. For about $58/day/person all of the arrangements and costs mentioned above went off without a hitch. We can recommend Travel n Tours India and Ashu without hesitation. Happy travels.
