After a lot of research and reading many reviews we found a driver in Delhi called Pankaj Singh. We contacted him via email to see if he was available for my trip dates. He was very speedy to reply considering the time difference. His rate was very reasonable and after contacting a few other drivers we decided to go with our gut and we hired him for 6 days. We wanted to see the sights in Delhi and do a 2 day trip to Agra. He was able to answer all of our questions via email and we made arrangements to meet at our hotel. I went to his website to see a photo of him so we would know who we were looking for. I also wanted to make sure we got him and not one of his drivers, not because that was a bad thing, I just like to know who I am dealing with.
He was very pleasant on our first meeting and during our 6 days had a great time with him. He is very funny and easy going, even though my husband said his jokes sucked! (Someone please buy him a good joke book) He took us to the places we requested and took us to some hidden gems(ask him about the Step Well) He even went shopping with me so ensure that I got a good deal.
His car was clean and he had wipes and water available, one day I mentioned that the water was warm and he stopped to buy some ice cold water for us. He genuinely wants to make sure that you have a good trip.
As a family from Canada and it being our first trip to India we were a little hesitate about hiring someone we didn't know, but it all worked out and we were very happy with our choice.
I am very grateful to the Tripadvisor members who write reviews as they do help when planning a big trip. Therefore I am adding mine.
Feel free to contact me if you want more information.
