Our travel company used the local tour company based in India. The company provided local drivers, contacts and tour guides. The driver, was excellent, professional, courteous, always willing and an excellent driver. The tour guides were definitely adequate, they did not seem inspired to teach/share the sights we saw beyond a perfunctory job. I chose all of the hotels and lodging so I take responsibility for my choices, we experienced few tours which were personally selected for us--we are active 60 year olds--the tours were short--averaging 4 hours a day so we had too much free time, I'm an interior designer so asked FOR A TOUR OF TEXTILES, ONE OF WHICH WAS TO A TOWN CALLED BAGRU WHICH was very informative, one which was about tie die did not teach us anything. My major complaint was that all of the tour guides walked 10-20 feet in front of us in the cities, cities are crowded and difficult to negotiate for westerners and I felt very reticent to walk with so many motor bikes, cows, etc.
The Havei dance performance.
Although as a first time visitor, we did enjoy the expected sights, I.e. Temples and palaces---which were fantastic, I would have Ike longer tours to include visits to less trafficked sights which I thought I had described when I booked this trip.
Travel Company's Comment
Thank you for your feedback. Clients who book with us have found their overall trips to be excellent so I am sorry to hear about the tour guides and some of the tours were less favorable. We went through the itinerary several times and discussed the tours before agreeing on a final itinerary. We have used these guides before and have received excellent reviews. I can understand one guide walking ahead but not all. There was diversity in this trip with cities, Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jaisalmer and Udaipur along with properties in rural areas that included Pushkar for the Camel festival, Sherbagh near Ranthambore National Park, Chattra Sagar, a luxury tented camp near a village, Mihirgarh near a village and Jawai Leopard Camp in the wilderness a few hours from Udaipur. I understand there were several less congested, rural areas that you have visited that were more enjoyable based on your preferences. Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to an opportunity to welcome you back to India again.
