He is very easy to talk to, extremely knowledgeable, and knows the area and the people in the villages. He allows plenty of time for you to look around each village. He is very flexible and will move to... More

Dhanraj, the guide is a helpful person speaking great English, (good for us). The trip through the Country side is very interesting. As he lives nearby, he knows people, landscapes, animals, trees etc. Pottery and durries carpets are a must to visit. The jeep ride is fabulous. Will come back for sure.
