Hello my Fodorite friends! I have been reading your India trip reports for the past couple of weeks, as that is hopefully our next destination. We are planning a route from Katmandu, Nepal, flying to Varanasai and then driving the following route: Khajuraho, Agra, Delhi, Jaipur, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Amedabad, Mumbai. We may take trains from Khajuraho to Delhi and from Amedabad to Mumbai, but think we would really like to road trip the rest of the route. We plan on taking Bob's advice here and make our own hotel reservations. We don't much go for structured guides, but will use one when we think a place merits it. We want to drive as much as we can, because we very much enjoy seeing the countryside. We have about 25 days to make this trip and are targeting the December/January timeframe. We have emailed Bob's recommended driver for an estimate. Does anyone have any other recommendations? I tried a search, but didn't get too far through the list looking for recommended drivers. Maybe I am not searching correctly? In any case, if you've had a car and driver for a reasonable price (what is reasonable by the way?) please pass on the contact info! From past experience, we know a driver can make or break a trip. Also, any other advice on hotels, good routes or must-see places -- or anything else regarding India (or Nepal) -- is greatly welcomed. I have to say that this board has been indispensible to our travels -- many many thanks to all the great posters here. You all have saved me more money and headaches than I will ever be able to list -- and have provided us with tips and advice for absolutely great trips. Thank you!
Car hire recommendations please!
