    Namaste Holiday was highly recommended by a friend from England. We were delighted with all the arrangements Dinesh Kumar Gaur made for our sight seeing tour of Rajasthan and our onward travel requirements. Essentially he arranged a car and driver to take us ever we wished to visit in Jaipur, and Agra and arranged our onward travel,one group back to Delhi and one on to Lucknow. The cars and drivers were excellent and Bajrang Singh Ji was particularly helpful. Dinesh also arranged a guide in Jaipur for the Janta Mantra and the city Palace who was very good. Overall the arrangements made our trip to Rajasthan and onto Lucknow very easy. Would recommend unreservedly. ...more
