We went from Dehli to Agra return about 2 weeks ago with Rana Tours = Rajesh Rana. He charged us R4,500 for the two day trip which included the red fort in Dehli and Akbars tomb, the Taj Mahal and the Agra red fort. His English is good, his car is air conditioned and comfortable by Indian standards and he is happy to talk and anwer questions. He didn't take us anywhere we didn't want to go and we are happy to recommend him. info@incredibleindianholidays.com www.incredibleindianholidays.com mobile 91-09810152437 Susan

It does not make sense for you to hire separate cars at each place. Pls remember you have to pay for the empty run back to the place of origin whenever you free a car somewhere other than your starting point. If you take 4 different cars for this itinerary, your empty runs will total up to more than they would if you kept the same car throougout. You need to speciy what is the total number of days youre staying at each place before a correct evaluation can be made if its better to keep a car full time or hire separate cars.

Hi! I just came back from India a week ago.

We hired a personal driver, Babu Khem. He will driver you around and even suggest places to visit. He is not a tour guide though, so he won't go into places with you.

A driver is the absolute best way to get around. The cities are widespread and so walking around takes a lot of time. Plus they will give you some great recommendations as far as places to visit, shopping and restaurants. Plus a driver has no problems dropping you off and waiting. So you hire them for a day or a week at a time and then you can basically do whatever you desire.

Babu was an absolutely fabulous driver and my trip to India would not have been the same without his hospitality and advice!

Feel free to contact me for any other information. Babu's information is:

The price you pay for a car and driver will or should include his acoomodations, daily food allowance, gas, taxes, and tolls. Make sure this is all agreed to, and I would suggest using a reputable company. We used Rajasthan Four Wheel Drive, and they were very good. No surprises. Actually there were! The owner had us for breakfast when we were in Jaipur. Also, our original agreement was for 15 days, New Delhi to New Delhi. When we inquired about adding their services to take us to the airport on the 16th day, it was added at no cost.
