It was a great experience, nothing unnecessary, no shops and lunches (just when we felt really hungry we asked our driver to find something for us and he found a really tasty and cheap cafe). Several more words about the driver. He was the best ever! He was really experienced (and fashionable in his multicolored turban))) with a great sense of humor and quite good English. Unfortunately I forgot his name. You do not really need a guide visiting those places, and we were honestly told that. Everything was prepaid, we were given audio guides for Ranakpur. So, it turned to be one of our best tours in India (together with Taj). Ranakpur is for sure a must-see place, an incredible one.

Our guide Nitin told us a lot about Udaipur history and we did fantastic visits. The city is really charming and it was a big plus to discover it with a good guide.

The trip was excruciating. Well coordinated. The guide and driver were very knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend them to everyone.

Very good and flexible guide, adapts to the demands of the visitors, good driver as well, to recommend!

Guide well knowledge of area. And has lots of information to pass on
