Mr D. K. Sharma was our tour driver for the last 3 days and the driving couldn't have been smoother. We arrived everywhere on time and well rested (having fallen asleep in the car a few times!) and he was always ready within a minute or so of us having finished each activity with the local tour guides (who were good at 'worst', fantastic at best so absolutely no complaints there either. A particular shout out to our guide in Jaipur who was extremely knowledgeable and knew where to take all the best photos, which order; and more importantly, at what time to visit things to avoid the queues!).I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone wanting to see a lot in a spare 3 days they are in India without the hassle of having to figure out where to go, what to do, or how to get there.There were of course a couple of stops at Bazaars and 'friendly' rest-stops (2 of which we actually went to at the same time as Christian Bale; who we also spotted again at the Taj Mahal... I don't think that's something to be guaranteed though on this tour usually I'm afraid...) along the way throughout the 3 days where a 'comission' will have been a certainty but this is par for the course. A firm 'no thank-you' was all that was needed if you didn't want to buy anything though and the 'shopping' stop in Agra was actually great as we learnt all about how the stone inlay was done on the Taj Mahal and (having refused anything from the 'main' room as all too big, been shown the back room where all the smaller items were kept, then haggled them down to 50% of the initial price) even bought a couple of bits for us/family!The car was also the cleanest we had been in since the private transfer we booked from the airport to the Shangri-La; so much so I even took off my shoes to rest my feet - If you ever go in an Uber/taxi in Delhi you'd know for sure that isn't something you would do normally...
As a solo female traveler, I felt extremely safe and well taken care of throughout the entirety of this trip. My driver, Mr. K.K. Sharma, and all of the tour guides were knowledgeable about every monument and very respectful. I appreciated that everything was already arranged and that each of my 3 tour guides stayed with me throughout my time in each of the 3 cities. This trip exceeded my expectations! I’m still amazed at everything I was able to fit into a 3 day trip!
The tour was very well planed and the hotels were nice, especially the one in Agra it would be considered a 5 star even in the USA. I really enjoyed myself and as a solo traveler felt safe at all times. Each tour guide is very knowledgeable and has a great personality, even DK the driver is nice. Sunil in Delhi, Mahesh in Agra and Ashok in Jaipur. The only thing I would ask for next time is an alternative for shopping, take people to the local market as a pose to a store meant for tourist.
Great tour, although very tiring, with 7 to 8 hours in car each day. Same driver for 3 days and a local guide in each City. Very nice comfortable car - Innova. Traffic around Delhi is ridiculous. The Delhi start is great, on time, good site visits. Drive to Agra is good, the new Expressway is a fast road. The Agra Hotel Crystal Sarova was lovely. Only issue was a nearby bar playing loud music through the night, so no sleep ! Agra sites are great. Taj is beautiful. The drive from Agra to Jaipur was terrible. There were Dalit protests around the country, so some major roads were closed. Jaipur hotel was good. Trip back to Delhi was long, very long, took about 8 hours.
My one major concern about this tour is the amount of driving the drivers have to do. Indian roads are death traps and all the drivers are lunatics. There are no laws or rules followed. The drivers drive 8-10 hours per day, and they get tired, and fall asleep at the wheel. I had to keep a close eye on the driver as he was driving erratically sometimes and make sure he was not falling asleep.
We were in India in March and booked the 3 day Golden Triangle Tour in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. The service overall was fanstastic, always punctual at pick up locations, great choice of sites to visit and good suggestions for lunch and shopping. We had the best driver: Bobby. He was safe on the road, very friendly and always lloking out for anything we needed. The two tour guides in Delhi and Agra were very good, well informed, knowledgeable of the country's history, heritage and culture as well as always ready to answer any questions we had on Indian society. They were also very patient, especially during our shopping moments. Unfortunately we didn't make it to Jaipur for health reasons, but even then we had all the support from the driver Bobby especially, but from the company itself as weel. Thank you for showing us beautiful parts of India and for all the friendly support!
Awesome trip! Exceeded all my expectations and the tour covers so much. I initially just wanted to see the Taj Mahal but when I came across this tour I thought Id take the chance and explore further. The tour guides were charming, knowledgable and brought every single site to life. New Delhi felt extra special as we were there for Holi. The Taj Mahal was breathtaking and nothing quite prepares you for it. Although I didnt know much about Jaipur before the trip, it became one of my favourite cities in India. The palaces, the fort and the observatory, our guide brought the pink city to life.
The most impressive part of the trip is our driver K K Sharma. He was funny and always in great spirits. He spent the entire 3 days with us and hours driving us from city to city, ensuring we had everything we needed. Hes courteous, with a great sense of humour and I really want to thank him as he made those 4 and 5 hours drive feel effortless. Hes a walking encyclopaedia and I recommend him highly. Absolute first class service!
The tour was well planned. The stay at Agra was very good. The hotel in Jaipur was a big property but the amenities were one star. They should not use that property for this tour as it was claimed that stay will be four star. They should just see the amenities and service of Shiraz Inn Agra to compare. The driver was outstanding and very polite and safe. The tour guides were nice, though sometimes their accent of English was a bit of a challenge. But overall tickets and guides were very good. Enjoyed the tour a lot barring stay at Jaipur.
This was an excellent tour and well managed, considering the limited time. I had one dedicated driver, Mr D.K. Sharma, and he was superb. Polite, excellent manner and exceptional driving skills in difficult conditions. I had a different tour guide for each of the 3 days, all of whom were well informed and well organised. The 2 hotels chosen were of a high standard, presenting clean quality accommodation and a wide range of very good food.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour for those who want a glimpse of Indian culture and history with only a few days available. January is also a good month to travel as the climate is most agreeable.
I highly recommend this tour! All 3 of our tour guides were amazing and offered supreme information and a wonderful experience. They were funny, informative and gave us secrets to the best pictures, best secret experiences and answered all of our questions. Thank you mr. Sunil, Patel, and ashok!
