e booked a four night trip on the Golden Triangle by contacting Sugar (Ankit) at Discover India by Car. Sugar was incredibly helpful with our itinerary and responded to all emails in remarkable time.
We were picked up in Delhi by our lovely driver Mr. Sanjay and taken to Agra. Mr. Sanjay told us to be careful at the Taj Mahal and explained who we should/shouldn't trust - this was much appreciated.

The following morning post Taj Mahal, Mr. Sanjay took us to Fatehpur Sikri at his recommendation. Our aim was to get to Jaipur as quick as possible but had no problem stopping here as it was enroute. However, when we arrived we were surprised to learn that Mr. Sanjay had organised a guide for us. The guide wasn't very friendly, was quite pushy and there was a language barrier, therefore we knew this guide wasn't going to be beneficial for us. Furthermore, this guide called his friends (who happened to be shop owners at Fatepur Sikri) and alerted them that he had tourists in the vicinity. The shop owner approached us and basically marched us in to his shop. By this stage we felt very uncomfortable and wanted to abandon the guide/Fatephur Sikri visit. We felt obliged to purchase from the owner's shop. However the owner quickly changed from friendly to very rude when we told him that we were not going to pay the ridiculous asking price for his souvenirs. We bought something (as we felt compelled to) and left. Discover India is a reputable company and I feel they shouldn't partner with guides like this as its sours the experience.
Mr. Sanjay then took us to a tourist factory which served food (he explained that it was the only decent food on the route). My partner and I were not hungry and just browsed the tourist factory shop whilst we waited (this was probably the intention). Again, we felt like we were just on a conveyor belt of tourists and felt it was not an authentic experience. Mr. Sanjay then dropped us in Jaipur.

The following morning we asked Mr. Sanjay if we could abandon his itinerary and suggestions and just visit two places: Amber fort and Jal Mahal. Mr. Sanjay was very happy to oblige and took us straight to Amber fort. We mentioned that we'd also like to buy some spices so Mr. Sanjay told us he would take us to a local spice shop. Upon entering it again felt like a tourist trap. The spices were extortionate and did not smell good. Again we felt obliged to purchase and quickly left. Mr. Sanjay recommended some sari shops but we politely declined as we did not want to be put in the same scenario again.

Mr. Sanjay's car was comfortable, had great wifi and he even gave us a phone incase we had to contact him in emergency. He was always punctual and happy to discuss Indian culture which we found fascinating.

Overall I'd recommend this company to anyone who wants to explore India by car. The service could be improved slightly by not taking guests to the tourist trap places or by partnering with guides who are trying to fleece you. This made us uncomfortable and soured the experience slightly.

Traveling as a woman alone in India, I had lots of concerns. When this company quoted me much less than others, my concerns grew: ' Is it safe? What's the catch?' As far as I can tell, non. I did the 'golden triangle + ranthambore' trip, and am very happy.

I felt very safe at all times. My driver, Manish, took care of me as a father. He was concerned about the heat and made sure I drank enough (always had a coolbox with water in the car). He was always on time, waited for me while I did my sightseeing, gave clear directions on where to go, and was a pleasant companion. His English is good (as long as you don't expect to have deep conversations, you're good), there were no communication problems. When I needed something, he would take of it (e.g. he would go and buy me a Coke). Very pleasant. But above all: he's an excellent driver.

He does not care for the environment, though. Like most Indians, he throws his trash on the ground. And it's also weird that he burps a lot in the car without apologising, but I guess that's a cultural thing.

Writing this review, I'm quite upset (but not enough to give less than 5 stars, cause I had a memorable trip). Besides talking every day about the tip he'll get from me, and how 'European money is big' and 'Indian money small' (making me feel really bad for him), he pressured me into writing this review before the trip ended, and wanted to know what I'll write + how many stars he'd get. That's really not okay. When I told him I'd write a very detailed review (because I appreciate those myself), he tried to talk me out of it by saying that details are not always the best for him. Well ... reviews are not about what's best for him, but about giving a clear picture of what to expect!

I had told him twice before that I'm not comfortable reviewing while I was still with him, but he kept on pressuring me to do it anyway. Now I feel really awkward spending another day with him after writing this, but so be it.

I understand that reviewing is important, especially in the low season when there are not many customers, and that tips are an important part of their wage. But it is enough to mention it once. Now I almost feel more focused on taking care of him, than enjoying my trip. By bringing up his tip every day, I keep changing my mind on how much to give. It is driving me crazy.

We booked a shuttle to Delhi- Agra as well as an airport pick up and everthing was very well organized by Mr. Sugar who was very friendly and prompt with the email communication. Also our driver Mr. Ashok was very professional, friendly and drove us safely. We can only recommand the company and would book with them anytime again!

Discover India by Car provided great service from the beginning to the end of our 7 day trip. Sugar , gave us great info, a great price. and always communicated directly and quickly. Veer, our driver, safely delivered us from Delhi to Jodhpur with plenty of interesting stops in between. Veer was punctual, friendly, and flexible. At our request upon arrival in Agra and Jaipur, Discover India by Car recommended local guides for our crew. Mr. Kahn in Agra enlightened us about the Taj Mahal. Kirsta (sp?) in Jaipur explained much about the Jantar Mantar. We highly recommend DIBC.

We went with DIBC for a ten day trip from Delhi, via Agra, Jaipur and Jodhpur to Udaipur in April 2019.
The communication with the company prior to the trip and the booking was swift, and straight forward. We fixed itineraries together in advance.

We had a very experienced and English speaking driver named Sanjay, who made our trip to be a wonderful experience.
He knew the regions very well and was very proficient orientating in the different cities. He was always very punctual and helpful when we asked for his advice.
The driving style was very safe and we arrived at our hotels and monuments easily. I found it remarkable that he gave us a mobile phone to be able to communicate, just in case.

There was an outstanding level of service ( calling receptions in advance for us, providing wifi and cooled water).

I can strongly recommend this company and our driver.
