Oltre a portarci a visitare i siti e la città ci ha prenotato il viaggio in taxi da Delhi ad Agra, e nonostante la nostra titubanza, non eravamo certi della sua onestà, abbiamo dovuto ammettere che la fiducia che gli avevamo dato è stata ricambiata egregiamente. Persona, oltretutto, molto discreta e per nulla insistente. Lo ringraziamo tanto e ve lo consigliamo calorosamente. Michela Onorio Ivano ...more

    Sudhakar was the man who drove us everywhere in Aurangabad. Actually I booked their service for 1 day as to see how their service is then felt its genuine. Then again I booked for Ajanta Caves next day. In Day 1 they drove us inside city and Ellora Caves. He is a very humble and friendly person. You will not need any guide inside the Aurangabad city. He will explain everything from his side. Whenever I will visit the city in future surely go with Sudhakar. ...more
