My partner and I have traveled much of the world on our own but had not yet been to India. We were told that, for India, it was best to do an organized tour; as independent travelers, we wanted to avoid the grueling schedule of bus tours.
A friend who had been to India put us in touch with Ram Sharma at Desert Riders Excursion. At first, we were a bit concerned about organizing a large trip over the Internet with someone unknown. Turns out that Ram and Desert Riders Excursion quickly put us at ease, were very responsive to our concerns and needs and took time to answer our questions not only about places to see but also dealing with a different culture.
They designed the perfect two weeks vacation that allowed us to satiate our hunger for adventure and to relax. It was perfectly planned to the last detail with our own car and driver (who was pleasant and knowledgeable) and well informed local guides. Although the trip was minutely planned, it also allowed total flexibility; when one of us came down with the flu; our daily activity and overnight accommodation was changed at the very last moment without fuss.
We hold fond memories of our trip and look forward to visiting Southern India in a few years with Ram's help.
Excellent Golden Triangle Tour,
We have used the services of Desert Riders private day tours during a recent trip to India, last September. We had been
impressed by the great reviews read here. Our contacts were conducted by mail with Mr.Ram Charan Sharma
who, with great kindness and efficiency, has helped us to define in detail our travel schedule (visit of Delhi and a 3 day tour to Agra and Jaipur).
On our arrival at Delhi airport we met the Ram Charan Sharma ( Company owner ), who was there to welcome us and to introduce Mr Satish, the driver assigned to us for the following days. In each city (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur) we had a local guide who accompanied us in the visit, helping us to understand and appreciate more deeply the Indian society.
Our driver - we spent four days with him - was a very kind young man, friendly, sympathetic. It was a real pleasure to travel with him The hotels we choosed in Agra and Jaipur (among those proposed by Desert Riders Private Day Tours ) have proved to be excellent from all points of view.
Overall, therefore, we were extremely pleased to have chosen this agency: we had a great and warm service! Many thanks to all of them!
