Wanted to do a family holiday around Rajasthan covering Jaipur, Jodhpur & Udaipur. The Delhi Way organised everything really well from seeing the popular sites we also saw a lot of off beat places which was a great positive.They manage to find you those places off the beaten path ….those little surprises that you dont read a lot about but are glad you found them!,Their guides were really good – it really is an asset if you belong to that city and that person shows you around – you see a different side of the city.In all a wonderful experience.!
Excellent tour from a local’s perspective-highly recommended!
I wanted to explore a few places in India but was skeptical about where and how till a friend recommended The Delhi Way. We visited Agra and Jodhpur. Every step of the journey was exciting. The guides were very good and helped us around. The car was spic n span and the driver was very friendly. The ladies are doing a great job!
