    We were hosting a wedding at Mussoorie and based on previous reviews we decided to move forward with Chauhan Taxi Service. Mr Chauhan took care of picking up and dropping off more than 250 guests over a span of 4 days from Dehradun and Mussoorie flawlessly. There were no complaints but only praises from our guests. He was also very flexible and accommodated all last moment requests without any hesitation. Mr Chauhan himself was present most of the time coordinating and is a very humble and down to earth person. I would like to commend Chauhan Taxi, for the service provided and recommend them as a go to option for anyone looking for taxi services in Dehradun and Mussoorie. ...more
