    Uttamkumar's 6 days trip to Ajmer

    Trip was peaceful.. all hotel bookings were done properly. Had some issues with cab driver and coordinator in between but got sorted soon.. only feedback would be to communicate cab and driver details directly to guests rather than bringing middlemen like coordinators.

    Jsgdeepikajaganathan's 4 days trip to Ajmer

    Loved my experience with Travel Skipper - Amandeep. We had the best driver too, very kind and thoughtful, he was able to guide us to all places and kept us safe. We were a group of 3 women so safety was our top concern. Only point that I would like travel skipper to improve on is their connect with
    the driver. The driver kept asking us about payment when that's between the agent and them. Please have an agreement drawn on how the agent will be sending money to the driver at what intervals beforehand.
