I just returned from the most incredible adventure of culture, humanity & safaris. Tanuj Choudhary prepared my travel itinerary and it was filled with diversity and flexibility. When the Canadian Embassy advised for me to return back to Canada as soon as possible due to the pandemic Coronavirus, Tanuj promptly assisted me with all the internal flight and hotel arrangements. My driver, Nand was extremely polite & assisted in whatever I needed. His professionalism & expert driving skills was outstanding.I highly recommend Rajasthan Four Wheel Drive for the individualized and safe travel. Thank you for being an instrumental part of my journey. I am humbled and blessed to experience life in India.
I actually went to India in late 2018 and used the service from four wheel drive to visit several places in Rajasthan. My driver named Narwal gave my friend and me a very lovely service. The most impressive thing is that every restaurant he took us to, served the best food ever. I really enjoyed that trip and have been thinking of it lately. Anil also coordinated the service for us very well. I hope things will get better from the pandamic soon and hope to visit India again. I also hope that Anil and Narwal are doing well.
We really recommend this agency for a pleasant private Indian tour. We found the agency on TripAdvisor and we decided to contact the boss Anil by mail. He has been very nice and helpful with every information we needed to organize the tour. We met our driver Fateh at the airport and the travel began. The tour started at New Delhi then we went to Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur and back to Delhi. Fathe is a very expert driver. He brought us in every place we planned and he was able to suggest us with other sites we didn’t know and to help us with planning every day in the best way possible. We found a very nice, kind, aware and friendly man who made this tour amazing. Thank you Fateh and thank you RFWD. We will for sure come back to India with you!
We had an amazing trip to India, large part in thanks to the team at RFWD. Anil and our driver, Satyanarayan, met us at the airport, and we received top notch service start to finish. We spent a week total in Jaipur, Agra, and Delhi, some days asking Satu to drive as many as 8 hours. He was friendly, professional, and diligent. He provided helpful suggestions for sites to visit and places to eat and even joined us for breakfast and a visit to the Sikh temple in Delhi. He also shared his wealth of knowledge, sometimes acting as a tour guide, other times scheduling tour guides, and sometimes pretending to be an Old Delhi rickshaw driver (see pic).
Overall, the service was of the highest quality and affordable - highly recommend to anyone traveling to the Golden Triangle.
