What an amazing tour! I cannot recommend this enough. Bobby our driver was the best he had amazing service, always went out his way to keep us happy and always kept positive always laughing and cracking jokes! Bobby also constantly stopped to allow us to try new things we hadn’t tried before which was also very good, we couldn’t have asked for a better driver for the tour. Also always ensured we were comfortable throughout. He recommended such good places for food and had good local tour guides too who helped us with different things like for example getting SIM cards and dealing with different experiences we weren’t normally used to. The company had worked out the tour according to our needs and it all worked perfectly and we seen loads when on this tour it was full days and they ensured we made most of the tour definitely worth the money we paid! If your contemplating booking this, definitely book it you will not regret it we couldn’t have done all that he had done without this tour!

We booked a private tour & had the most amazing & memorable experience with Janu Private Tour. Janu & his team are incredible. They are extremely considerate, knowledgeable, respectful, & just simply fun people to be around. Janu goes above & beyond in every way to help out. He genuinely wants each of his clients to have the best experience possible & it shows. A true professional at their finest, excellent communication & a great sense of humour! Also the drivers & guides are all amazing. In Jaipur we hang out at the Marigold Inn at the rooftop restaurant, & learned about the amazing story of Janu’s life & his successful business as a travel agent. I can highly recommend Janu Private Tour to anyone who wants to have a fantastic time in Jaipur! They’re the best company & you will have the most amazing & memorable experience with them. Thank you Janu for the unforgettable times we had! We shall return soon definitely.

I had a great shopping experience in Jaipur thanks to Janu. He provided amazing service and expertise throughout the whole day of shopping. Janu went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had a great time. He listened to what we were after and took us to the right places for our needs. He has great connections all over Jaipur and knows the best places for textiles, pottery, jewelry, souvenirs and much more. Neither Janu or the shops he took us to pushed us to purchase anything. The prices and quality of the products were really good, as well as the service we received in the shops. They even offer to ship to your home if wanted. After previous experience shopping in India by ourselves, we were relieved to not have to deal with any bargaining or hustle and bustle. I highly recommend this tour for the best shopping experience in Jaipur!

Very good driver, punctual both at the meeting point and equally in line with the destination.

Great and fast service instant delivery . Esim works perfect
