"We were visiting india for 23 days. Ourguide was Rinku, a gentle man, always working for a pleasant experience. We visited all known places but hidden indian treasures as well. We won,t never forget this experience"Sergi D
"My daughters and I started in New Delhi, then traveled to Jaipur for a few days. We toured in Agra next and then returned to New Delhi. Our guide was Rakesh from India Tour Services and he was perfect for us. He was sensitive to our needs, friendly and kind. He could always offer options and added some great little stops for us! We were glad for a strategy to visit the Taj Mahal, advice for getting in and out of the Red Fort, and really appreciated stops at the Step Well and the Monkey Temple. We also enjoyed appointments to learn and shop with textile producers and stones/jewelry.
Rakesh was able to hit the perfect balance between enthusiastic additions to the trip and quiet, restful breaks. We highly recommend him!"
"Rakesh was our tour guide for 14 days in North India. Taking us through the mountains to the beautiful Himachal Pradesh!
The attention to detail and comfort was unbelievable. Helping us at restaurants and hotels and even local events and attractions.
On the trip Rakesh became more than a guide. He became a friend.
We can't wait to go back and would recommend any traveller to use his company regardless of how many times you have been to the country.
Rakesh will work hard to make your trip an unforgettable one! AMAZING!"
