Very happy with our experience! The day before I had to change pick up point, had it done easily and quickly via email. The tour was ideal for covering the main sights and include some shopping within the limited time. Enjoyed the lunch at the heritage restaurant as well as the company of Mr Kumar (guide) and Mr Singh (driver). All in all, an excellent day!

Ram Singh, the driver, picked me up at the hotel. He was on time and I was welcomed with a flowernecklace. We then went to the first stop wher we met the guide named Kamran. During the whole tour he was giving me a lot of information and very detailed explanations. He was always looking out for me and answered all my questions. I can recommand the tour.
