Great trip

My friend and I had a great tour of Rajasthan and I was very impressed with the service provided by Rajaputana tours. They were very efficient and professional throughout and our driver Sathi was so attentive and helpful as well as being a very good careful driver.

I can thoroughly recommend Rajputana and hope I can use them again on another trip.
