Driver/tour advice please

We are planning the following

3 nights udaipur

3 nights jaipur

1 night Agra

2 night Delhi

I have arranged hotels and flights (Delhi-udaipur and udaipur- jaipur) so this is sorted and am looking to book the following, would appreciate advice on prices/whether to pre book

Driver jaipur to Agra

Driver agra to Delhi

1 tour day udaipur/boat trip

1 tour day jaipur/elephant amber fort

Taj Mahal visit

1 Delhi tour

My question is how much should I expect to pay for the above services I am currently being quoted 50000 inr from a few quotes is this to be expected?

Should I pre book whole schedule or sort from hotels in jaipur/Agral/Delhi?

The best is to pre book all hotels and arrange transport as well from operators who are suggested and recommended on this forum.

It would be better for you to finish car journey first and last take flight to Delhi -

Tour Plan : Delhi - 02 Days > Agra - 01 Day , Jaipur - 02 days > Udaipur -02 Days > Jodhpur - 02 days , last jodhpur - Delhi fly back.

As you have time so you should see Jodhpur too & one day can do some village safari .

Jaipur to Udaipur car would be better en route you may visit Chittorgarh fort.

Udaipur to Jodhpur - visit Ranakpur Jain Temple & Kumbhalgarh fort ( good scenic view.

Hari Mangal

As per your tour plan the cost for this tour not more than INR 22000/- include transport from Jaipur Agra Delhi, Sightseeing in Delhi, day trip In Udaipur with boat riding, Day trip to Jaipur with Elephant ride. About the hotels you no need to worry about this its easy to when you will be in city. As per my advice transport you book in advance.

Dear visitors

Hire car separate in udaipur for your arrival + sight seeing and departure as well.

Jaipur airport to Delhi including every things you can pay about 30000-35000 Rupees for top quality services and Toyota innova with english speaking reliable chauffeur.

Before final quote please take advising from 2-3 operators.

Hotels are book in advance do to very rush time now in this part.

Any help your welcome.

its a shame, you will alway get expensive quotes online, if you can get recommendations from a friend or trip advisor member (with many posts/reviews) you can beat that and even more so once you are there. my experience is things can be arranged quickly in india.

as a guide, last yr i paid £40 per day on average for a driver (all in)
