“Excellent experience in Rajasthan”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Janu did an excellent job organizing our 6 day trip across Rajasthan (Pushkar, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Ranakpur, and Udaipur). He was very friendly, efficient, organized, honest, and straighforward. There was no "deceit" or hard sales tactics employed here, unlike the vast majority of encounters with salesmen or vendors in India. Everything was explained in thorough detail to us, all the costs were laid out clearly, and we made our decision without any pressure. In the end, we were very glad we chose Janu and his excellent driver, Shakir, who had a solid command of English and showed us the highlights of Rajasthan. He did a great job of taking us to the local sights, giving us tips on how to avoid scams/touts, and bought us things we wanted (everything from fruit to whiskey) so as to gain the advantage of the "locals" price (as opposed to paying high foreigner prices). All told, we had an amazing experience touring Rajasthan from the comfort of our brand new, air-conditioned van. We could go where we wanted, when we wanted, rather than take trains and have to pay for local tuk-tuks on arrival. It was an amazingly relaxed and comfortable way to travel. Thank-you so much Janu and Shakir for your excellent service. Highly recommended!

From the Canadian comrades - Pat, Cam, Anthony, Laura, and Courtney

PS - Congrats again Janu on your marriage, have fun at the wedding!

“Mr Rakesh Agarwal is the boss!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We had a fantastic time because of Rakesh, always smiling, so friendly and full of stories on the history of the city. We had dinner with him a few nights and he is really a great tour guide. We felt so safe, he spent a whole day with us taking us around Jaipur and then drove us to Agra and back in a day!
The only comment i will make is to make sure you feel comfortable with the food venues you choose because cleanliness shouldn't be compromised on ever! It's super easy to pick up a bug and that combined with the heat and travelling can be uncomfortable! So, just make sure everything is spotless before you eat in places. Rakesh will help with this no doubt!

5 star driver - would only use him again!

Thank you boss! :)

“Janu is THE Tour Guide”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Janu was the first person my husband and I met when we arrived in Jaipur. He was driving us to Elefantastic (which you must visit!) and we immediately bonded with him. He is so friendly and recommended lots of interesting places to see in Jaipur in our short time, without being pushy. Without any hesitation we booked a jam packed day trip with him to see all the sights of Jaipiur the following day. He knew all the regular places that are a must see, as well as places off the beaten track; with the right amount of information and stories to go with them along the way.

We were so happy with his knowledge and service that we then booked a 4 day trip which included Pushkar, Ranthnamabore (where we saw a tiger!) Agra then Delhi. Janu's service was amazing & great value for money. He and his driver Rakesh listened to what we wanted from a trip and devised the perfect itinerary. We felt safe in the car at all times and were taken to delicious restaurants along the way. Whether you book just a day or a week with Janu and his team, you won't be disappointed...

“Thanks Janu!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Janu and his team were amazing. As a professional photographer I wasn't interested in necessarily visiting all the tourists spots but instead wanted to be where the native people were and photograph them and the sense of place they inhabit. Janu and his team understood this and though I only had two days to shoot--they made my shooting stay fruitful and efficient taking me to the places that yielded great shots. Awesome experience--hope to see you again soon!
