India - Rajasthan Tour

Hi, we would like to thank the team in Travel Local for the amazing holiday we have just had in India. They organised the full private tour, from getting off the plane on arrival to checking in for our return flight. We were met in each location by a representative from the company to assist in check-in and ensure we were comfortable and highlighted some of the best attractions in each location. We travelled over 3300km, staying in 9 locations during the tour, all driven by our driver Kirpal (a true gentleman) nothing was ever an issue, a professional in every way. We had a Local Guide in each location, their knowledge and enthusiasm was engaging, they took their time to ensure that we had time to take in the surroundings before proceeding to the next part of the Monument, Fort, Palace or next location. So, to Mr Tewari Murkesh (Delhi), Mr Kamlendra Singh Chahar (Agra), Mr Pradeep (Bundi), Mr Jitendar Singh Bhati (Udaipur), Mr Veerjeet Rathore (Jodhpur), Mr Brijraj (Jaipur) we say a big thank you to you all for making our trip so memorable and given us a much better understand of your history and your beautiful monuments. We stayed in a varied type of accommodation from Hotels, to a Maharajahs Palace, each one unique. I have to say the Bhanwar Vilas Palace in Karauli was amazing as we not only got to meet the Manarajah and his family, but we also got invited to tea in his private quarters with him and his family, for me a true honour. The accommodation in every location was top class, as a Coeliac (Gluten Allergy) the food was great, no problems with the choices of food available and in most cases were willing to modify dishes to suit. Places we stayed are The Metropolitan (Delhi), Radisson (Agra), BhanwarVilas Palace (karauli), Dev Niwas (Bundi), Fateh Niwas (Udaipur), Rawla (Jotawar), Pal Haveli (Jodhpur), Shahpura House (Jaipur), Pullman Aerocity (Delhi). Finally, we would like to thank all the office and backroom staff who were involved in the smooth operation in making our holiday such a memorable time for us. This was the first time we have ever gone on an organised trip and taking the private tour option in my opinion was the best thing we ever did. Regards Jim & Rose Horan

Dear Jim, Thank you very much for your kind words. I am thrilled to know that you enjoyed all our arrangements. I really hope you return to India and we are able to serve you again. Thanks also for the feedback that we should provide information on evening shows/events in each city. We will definitely work on this. Thank you once again for your kind words. Best wishes, Nutan
