Guide and Driver..New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur and more....

My friend and I are planning a trip to India in late October for 2 or so weeks. We have hotels and flights in place, but require drivers and guides for our visit. Any suggestions would be helpful.....

Thanks,
Cathy

Many people here have also recommended Ramesh Meena. Search the Asia forum for his name and you should find his contact info too.

A big thing in choosing a driver is A) they speak English well, and B) they know their way around the cities you're hiring them for.

Also, don't drive after dark, especially in any rural areas.

We leave for India a week from tomorrow and will be there for 26 days. Bob - do we overlap at all? We are using Castle and King and will report back once we have returned.

We don't get to India until Oct 29. We start in Kolkata. I think you will be home by the time we get there. Maybe next time...K

I used Castle and King, recommended on this forum, and was very satisfied. Arvind took good care of us all the way.

Karen - Looks like we'll be following you to China next year.

Drgough - good to hear more nice things about Castle and King. Arvind is a pleasure to work with.
