We met Janu when he picked us up from Elephantastic, and after a fantastic morning there, the rest of our time in Jaipur was wonderful thanks to Janu. Janu, first, is kind and funny and his open energy made us want to spend our time with him. He was flexible, knowledgable and brought us to some great spots in Jaipur. Ever person we met through Janu was warm and open, making our time there really nice.

After bringing us to a textile and silver shop, and then the monkey temple, Janu brought us to a restaurant at the top of a mountain for a beautiful view and relaxed evening. The next morning, he drove us to the train with more great conversation and generosity. Even when it came to his payment, Janu's spirit and positive energy made our time with him truly joyful and made time spent in Jaipur wonderful. He is honest, responsible, a great businessperson, having built his business on his own, and truly understands the importance of strong relationships. This is Janu's business, but never did we feel that time with him was a transaction. His kind heart, positive attitude and intelligence are clearly the driving forces behind his success. He carries testaments from other very satisfied customers, all speaking to what we also experienced, his kindness and positivity making any time spent with him an improvement to any trip.

In addition, Janu set up someone to meet us in Udaipur (our next stop) who was also a breath of fresh air. Gansesh helped make our time in Udaipur equally lovely, and it was such a comfort to know that we would be met by someone kind and trustworthy on the other end of that train ride. Even when we changed our plans in Udaipur, Janu continued to coordinate our travels with a quick phone call.

I can not thank Janu enough for the time we were able to spend with him, and all of the great people he connected us to. Meeting Janu was truly a gift, making our time in Rajastan a highlight of the trip. I strongly recommend Janu to anyone visiting in Jaipur. I feel lucky that he had time in his schedule to spend with us - you may want to book ahead! Thank you Janu!!

We met Rakesh as our driver for the day through elefantastic (check it out, it's a must!) Rakesh was great, loved his sense of humour and his English is excellent! He showed us round all of the local attractions and monuments and waited for us while we made our way round. He has great advice for tourists, ask him about prices before buying anything! We also enjoyed his anecdotes and would recommend the service to anyone visiting Jaipur!

We were lucky enough to come across Janu when planning on heading to the Elefantastic elephant riding tours. A self-made entrepreneur of the highest quality, Janu provided us with his story of ascending the tour industry in Jaipur from renting a tuk-tuk (little yellow lawnmower taxi) to owning a fleet of ten cars. Not only was his story compelling, but his colourful descriptions of Jaipur filled in the many if not all of the blanks an outsider would have of the area.

By his explanation he was booked until late 2015, but took some spare time out of his holidays to do some work, a trait found in only the most successful of businessmen, and happened upon us disoriented Canadians attempting to grasp an idea of Jaipur culture.

Up until this point in our trip, which had included such destinations as Chennai, Mumbai, and Kochi, we had not eaten a thing outside of hotels. Some may call us out on not being adventurous enough but we had ample warning. We warily followed Janu into one of his favourite local joints for lunch at his insistence. Not only was all of the paranoia associated with eating at a local restaurant alleviated nearly immediately, but it ended up being one of the best meals we had on our month long trip in India, so good that we went back the next day!

After this was all said and done we intended on driving to see the Taj Mahal before concluding our trip. We were informed that no worries were to be had and Janu hooked us up with one of his drivers Md. Shakir who, like Janu, did a fantastic job explaining to us the culture surrounding us, and the transition in said culture from Jaipur to Agra.

(Mr.?) Md. Shakir, and akin to, i'm assuming the rest of the handpicked crew of drivers, was charismatic and proud and a true pleasure to have accompany us on the 4 hour drive to Agra, as well as the 5 hour drive to New Delhi and it's airport after that. At the end we were almost insisting on him grabbing some food with us, but he was too proud to accept our offer, something we can all respect.

Looking back, our experience was only that of one which you have to smile about from start to finish. Highly recommended from us, he even had a picture of him touring around Macklemore which was pretty cool as my brother and I are fans. If you are looking for a fantastic experience, and an enriching driver and crew look no further.

We met Janu when he picked us up from the train station. We chose to spend an afternoon sightseeing with him. We had a lovely afternoon today visiting the amber fort. So much nicer than going in a rickshaw! Unfortunately it did rain, so we didn't want to visit anymore outdoor places but the driver was lovely and took us to a nice textile shop where we bought a couple of cushion covers (though no pressure to buy anything). Janu met us there, and encouraged us to visit a jewellery shop as he told us they were very cheap. Really glad we did as you can't imagine how cheap the jewellery was and I ended up buying a necklace that I designed myself to make it perfect.
For the price, with a lovely air conditioned spacious van we were very happy with our day (could have been a wasted day due to the rain if the driver and Janu didn't advise us what to do!). Great value too and nice to deal with a straightforward guy like Janu! Thanks for a lovely afternoon!

We met Janu by chance, and had an amazing experience with him! He scheduled our day around exactly what we wanted to do and see, with some exciting surprises (delicious roadside lassis!) along the way. We had a great shopping experience throughout the afternoon while touring the city sites - he took us to local, greatly priced places, which is He was timely, flexible, and very dedicated to giving us the best experience possible based upon what we were looking to do in Jaipur. We highly recommend Janu and his team, will be referring friends to his services!
