Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 120 reviews

I suspect many reviews here will rave about the quality of the tour guide and professionalism of the driver (as they should, we had a very pleasant experience in our brief stint of 4 sites). I would like to tell anecdote about our experience. A party member was feeling ill in the morning, we reached out to the local partner and they were very accommodating to a delayed start time. After our tour started they were also accommodating and very friendly when a rest break was needed from the severe heat. We pushed our luck a little too much in the heat (104 F) and our party member succumbed to a fainting spell. The guide and driver were very attentive to her needs and ensured us safe passage back to the hotel, they were everything you could hope for as guests in a foreign country in a scary situation. I would trust them again without a doubt.

Our trip was absolutely breathtaking. When you are sitting at your computer looking at some "3-day private trip" overseas the first thing that comes to mind is showing up in said country and a nasty bus with a hundred people and a guy that barely speaks your native language shouting out the names of the events around you.... but this trip is so far from that. We had a private Toyota SUV packed with water to drink, hand sanitizer and first aid kits. There was rarely anything that we needed that our private driver Rajeesh didn't have! Our driver picked us up from our hotel and accommodated our every need from the beginning of the trip until the end! Our personal guides were incredible! They were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. This is truly a once in a life time trip!

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!

We had a great tour, everything was nicely planned. Our guides provided us with interesting insights and the drivers were also very helpful and reliable. Would definitely recommend this tour!

It was extremely useful . Highly recommend skip theline from get ur guide
