Owner description: Ramesh Meena whom his friends call Ram was born in a remote village of Rajasthan in a poor household. When he was barely 17 years old, his father met with a mine accident and was paralyzed and confined to bed for the rest of his life. Having lost the sole bread-earner of the family and faced with a highly precarious financial condition, Ram had to drop out from his school and start earning to support his family. Having initially starting working as a blue-collar worker in various capacities, he worked for a few travel and tour companies as a driver with a meager monthly salary for about 4 years. When he was working for his last employer, he met , an American civil rights lawyer during her tour to north India with her family in the winter of 2008. Before meeting Ram American family had quite a frustrating experience with the other drivers of that company. Ram greeted her and the family with flowers in the morning and gave them a ride in the in one of the western states of India and the family started enjoying their trip. As a result of her interaction with Ram and the highly professional services received from him, she was so impressed with him and suggested him that Ram should start his own company. With a small amount received from family which she gave it to him generously as tips for his services along with lone received from a financial agency as well as borrowed money from some friends, and a strong motivation from the family , Ram finally started his own company, namely, India by Car and Driver with only one small car of his own. e initially drove the car himself for more than a year. During this period he was able to pay most of the mortgage of the car and save a littile bit of money to by one big car with a decent amount of lone from a bank. With a positive feedback from his clients, most of whom being the Western customers, he was able to get more and more business and now within the third year of starting his own company since January 2009, Ram owns 8 cars which include three small cars to cater to the budget travelers and five SUVies to cater to the needs of those who travel with the family and can afford to spend little more than a budget traveler. Ram attributes the success of his business to his sincerity, honesty and professionalism, the traits which he expects his drivers to possess as well. In addition to these traits, Ram gives the greatest credit for his success in the business to several of his clients whom he served and who took the pain to take out time and document a positive feedback about his services. Several of the past recipients of his services even agreed to interact with his prospective clients and answer questions about the services of India by Car and Driver. Some even made the videos of their trip and agreed to share their pleasant experience with others by upload their videos on the net. One of such recently uploaded video can view by clicking here:

We had a great trip to N.W. India thanks to Ramesh and company. Our driver, Radamohan, was helpful, fun and accommodating. We were not always interested in the standard sights and had several ideas of our own, Rada was flexible and efficient about helping us arrange to see what we wanted.

The Toyota provided was very clean and comfortable and there was always bottled water to drink. We enjoyed every day in Rajasthan and Agra and appreciated the responsive service that made it so easy to accomplish our ambitious itinerary.

Ramesh made some reservations and some helpful recommendations that also augmented our trip. They are the ones to contact and hire if you are going to this part of India. It doesn't get any better than these guys.

My husband and I booked India by car and driver for our Delhi- Agra - Jaipur trip and were delighted with the service, from the inital response to emails from Ramesh and the flexibitlity they displayed in meeting our special requests through to the driver arriving early (unheard of in India!) at our Delhi Hotel to collect us. The driver was a Rajahastan local and had a delighfully calm manner and excellent safe driving skills. The car was very comfortable and clean. We wanted to avoid the Tourist hotels and try local Dhabas for eating on the long drives and he took delight in finding places. The guides provided at each site were excellent (you may want to opt out of the marble demonstration in AGRA though) and as I had travelled in India several times they respected our wishes to see what we wanted. I have recommended them to several friends.

I had always wanted to travel to India and decided to go to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family 6 of us in total. I wanted to travel around and settled on the Golden Triangle Delhi Agra Jaipur Delhi. I read the reviews on trip advisor to help sort out a mini bus and driver. Well It couldn't have gone better, India by Car and Driver were excellent in every respect. I have travelled all over the world and the service from Ramesh both before and during was first class. The last word must go to our driver Jile, he made our holiday. From the friendly greeting on arrival at Delhi he and the vehicle were always immaculate. He was a very professional man who took a pride in his work, he was sensitive to our requirements and had a great sense of humour too. My wife who is a nervous passenger at the best of times felt safe even in India's mad traffic. I will request Jile as my driver when I book my next trip through India by Car and driver. Thank you all.

Hello!

Newly arrived from India. Still in memory images, sounds, smells and pleasant emotions. We were fortunate to follow the recommendation of a friend who preceded us in time. She recommended the company "India Package Tour," owned by Mr. Narendra Kumar and that is something that will always appreciate. After countless e-mails with Mr. Kumar, who patiently answered every question and modification, we agreed a tour of the provinces of Rhajastan and Uttar Pradesh. We started in the capital city New Delhi and followed by those of Mandawa, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Amber, Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi and New Delhi again. Mr. Kumar reserve excellent hotels (many of them "havelis"), train tickets (Agra-Varanasi) and plane (Varanasi-New Delhi). He arranged a comfortable vehicle for four people and luggage, air-conditioning, which allowed us to support the more than 40 degrees daily. Given the windshield glass breakage, immediately responded with another vehicle and driver same benefits until replenishing damaged vehicle. Everything about the trip was the work of drivers, we forget so of guides in Spanish, tolls, stops restaurants, bathrooms clean and proper in the way (because three of us are women), provision of fresh water, etc.. At all times informed of our location and state. Never surprised us with a "extra expense" or alteration of previously agreed, on the contrary, always willing to accommodate our requests "on the fly".
A special comment deserves ("lord" in the broadest sense of the term) driver Lokendra Singh. His excellent disposition, responsibility and delicacy, made the trip to be special.
