December 2019 - Janu and his driver were amazing! Everything was organized nicely for us. A great train ride down and back and made sure we were safe and taken care of. The sights we saw were pretty good, although I didn't feel like we needed much time at the fruit and veggie market, but that was OK and they were fairly flexible. I would definitely book Janu again as it was a great and safe experience! Recommended!

Great Nature Advanture, Everything went smooth according to description and plenty of nature to see throughout the park. Lucky enough to see a Mother Bengal Tiger ! It is a long day perhaps worth staying a night at the park and fitting in another safari the next day if time permitting

The experience from Delhi to Jaipur has been very long, intense and complete. For those who want to visit Jaipur in one day it is the ideal tour. The tourist guide was very good: very prepared, he explained many goodies and recommended the right places to visit and photograph.

I had a very nice experience, the Taj Mahal is really beautiful also the companys driver Nurdreen was a very good and polite driver, knowing all the places and easily adapted to my needs

The stairwell is located far away, so it is difficult to see, but if you take this tour you can go comfortably. Stairwell is a must-see ruins.
