12 days tour of New Delhi, Agra and Rajashthan region
We live in the Netherlands and coordinated with Ravi remotely. Initially, we had apprehensions about paying some part of the booking in advance, but all our worries were led to rest as Ravi Tours did an excellent job in scheduling our complete tour end-to-end. Everything was arranged from hotel bookings, breakfast, all toll taxes and parking, state taxes, and driver allowance, arranged for English-speaking experienced local guides. All we needed to pay for was entry tickets, tips, lunches, and dinners (as we needed the flexibility to try out local cuisine). It was a real vacation in which we had nothing to worry about anything, we flowed with the flow.. an absolutely hassle-free trip. Credit also goes to our chauffeur driver, Krishna Pal Singh Chauhan, who was the actual face of Ravi Tours on the ground. A safe driver, he advised do's and don'ts and local watch-outs, was a semi-guide, was always punctual, and walked the extra mile to make our tour as comfortable as possible. In short all-in-one and a must to have a driver for long trips. We traveled from New Delhi > Agra > Fatehpur Sikri > Jaipur > Bikaner > Pokran > Jaisalmer > Jodhpur> Ranakupr > Udaipur. Watch out: 1) This can be a bit longer tip for families with young kids. 2) August was a good time to travel in the Rajasthan region as it was surprisingly greener. New Delhi was very hot and humid. 3) Insist a qualified local guide for your tour 4) The guide will take you to a local shop stating that it is government-approved etc. The moment you see an all-in-one shop (ie. Handicraft/clothing/jeweler) in one location, please avoid buying at the location. You can use it to gauge the prices and use it for any next purchases. 5) Adequate protection against the sun.
