Trip to RajasthanI had planned Rajasthan trip for my parents. Well, they seem to be very happy with the arrangements and services provided. 5 stars for the services. We requested for a helping and understanding chauffeur as he would be accompanying my parents for the entire trip. The chaffeuur indeed was very caring and polite. We got more than we asked for! Thanks again for the services.
Trip to RajasthanFantastic and fabulous Jaisalmer sand dunes was the best, everyone should visit their.
Trip to RajasthanWe had a pleasing and satisfactory trip in Rajasthan. The hotels were good and comfortable. Our cab driver really was well disciplined both in person and as a driver. I was surprised and pleased to see that our travel agent was so caring and prompt to handle the situation in case of inconvenience.
Trip to RajasthanIt was wonderful tour.. we couldn't manage to explore two sites because of time limit but enjoyed a lot..
Trip to RajasthanHotel at Jodhpur was not so good. Hotel at Jaisalmer (Radhika Hotel) was worst. No cleanliness, no professionalism. Surprised to know it is three star hotel. I never saw such type of worst service in my life.
Trip to RajasthanWe didn't like our driver. He's needed underarm deodorant. We didn't ask he's religion, but it looked like he didn't like Hindus. When we were supposed to visit a Hindu temple, he just parked on the side of a highway so we could take pictures from far away. Our tour of Delhi was OK, but when we got to Agra to visit Taj Mahal, he told us that we needed a guide and it would be the same when we go to Amer Fort. He told us that the guide's services will be a minimum of 1000 rupees for the two of us. Even though it was not in our itinerary and even though we don't like guides, we just agreed to have one. He insisted that we needed one. We picked him up from the street while we were driving, which were thought was weird. He looked like a guide - dressed nice with a name tag, but we had to pay for his entrance fee. When we got inside Taj Mahal, he started to convince us to hire a photographer which went on for about five minutes. We didn't hire one. Only once he offered to take our picture. When I interrupted his story to ask questions, he told me to wait until later and my questions will be answered when he tells the rest of the story which was much much later. He was emphasizing more on what kind of rocks the buildings were made of and how the decorations on were made. We knew that he was trying to sell us something, and we were right. When we finished the tour, he said that we needed to ride a tuktuk to meet our driver because we were far from the parking lot. He made me pay for the tuktuk. Then he and the driver took us to two places where they sell the things that he emphasized from the tour. The next day when we got to Fatephur Sikri, the driver was telling us that the parking lot is far away from the entrance and we had to take a tuktuk which will cost us about 100 to120 rupees. It is true that the entrance is far, but the designated bus that takes the people to and from the entrance only cost 10 rupees each way - we found this out later. Our driver stopped the car and talked to a tuktuk driver and told us that the tuktuk driver will take us to the entrance. He didn't take us to the entrance. He called a teenage boy and told us that the boy is his brother and would take us to the entrance, but he will not ask for money. It was a long and tiring walk up a hill. When we got up to the top, he called another teenage boy which is also his brother. This other boy said that he is a student and a volunteer guide and he will not ask for money. He said that we would start from the back and pay the entrance fee after we finish the tour. He was talking us away from the attraction which made us feel uneasy. I told him that we wanted to pay right away and go through the front entrance. When we got to the entrance, there was nowhere to pay. We went in after talking our shoes off, but we kept our shoes with us. We didn't know what to do when we got inside the building. I read that we were supposed to pay 500 rupees, but the place didn't look that big. Luckily we met three European tourist that had a map of the place and told us where we were supposed to pay. I told our volunteer guide to help someone else and that we don't need him then he asked me to pay him. I didn't. We got out of the building which we found out was a mosque and walked a block to the real entrance. This attraction is worth the entrance fee. When we finished, I asked how to get to the parking lot. I was told to to bus for 10 rupees. When we got to the parking lot, we had to search for our driver. When we found him, he said that he was worried because we took too long. We didn't trust him anymore. When he dropped us off at our hotel in Jaipur, I told him that we don't want anymore guides. He was disappointed and insisted that Amer Fort is a very important place and we need a guide. We told him that we don't like guides. The next day before the tour, he told us that he would pay for the guide. We told him that we don't like guides to tell us what to do and where to go and we don't need them. We enjoyed the rest of the tour. Royal View hotel where we stayed in was very nice with a great view on the roof.
Trip to RajasthanAmazing experience. Very good and helpful staff. Only concern was "Kanj Avatar Resort" in Pushkar was a bit far from city, so even though facility was good it wasn't very convenient. Would've preferred something closer to the city. Everything else was perfect, best service no complaints !!! Kudos !!!

Trip to RajasthanSuper excellence Garib Nawaz, and Taj Mahal, is super places of our memories
Trip to RajasthanTook a trip with traveltriangle (and DIU holidays) to Rajasthan. It was my first trip via traveltriangle based on quotes and feedback from friends. But it turn out to be not so good. Contact person from TT was not available at all, when i need to callback, it was automated system no real person. Only time i got response is the time when i paid money installment. Even automated system asked for number so that TT can callback, but not received any call. So anyone booking with TT should note that TT will NOT be there when you need. Good thing in trip was Contact person from DIU holidays, he picked phone when required and had been in kind of constant touch. You can count on them. Coming to trip itself: DRIVER was worst, his objective was just to pass the time so that he don't have to drive and find a free parking even if we have to walk long distances (parking, toll etc. was included in our price). He will say negatives things about spots that were mentioned in itinerary so that we dont visit that place and refuse slightest detour as it was not part of itinerary. first HOTEL was not so good, far far from city and not at all family environment (it was a OYO hotel, you know what goes with those). Second HOTEL was good. Best thing was Sultan resort and sand dunes. DIU had planned trip well and will definitely book with them in future.

FAQ's of Jodhpur
Read on to find out why our customers love us!
Unlike other cities of Rajasthan, Jodhpur doesn't have many activities to do than sightseeings and desert safari. A couple or three days should be enough for a visit to this city.
Jodhpur is a pretty safe place to be in but don't stay out till too late at night and don't get too friendly with the locals either. Keep your distance and be alert at all times and appear confident and don't look afraid or lost, irrespective of whom you meet. If you keep your wits about you, you should be fine in most cases.
Some of the major places one should visit in the city are Umaid Bhawan Palace, Mehrangarh Fort, Jaswant Thada, Mahamandir, Clock Tower, Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, Mandore Gardens and Balsamand Lake and Garden.
Jodhpur has its famous Mirchi Vada, Mawa Kachori and Pyaaz Kachori. Almost as popular and a must try item is Makhaniya Lassi.
A lot of tourists like to stay in one of the numerous heritage hotels in Jodhpur, which give an authentic feel of staying in an old haveli. For those who want to stay in luxury, Jodhpur in fact has some of the best hotels in the country. Notably, the Umaid Bhavan Palace which was originally used by the Royal family as their palace is now a heritage hotel, managed by the Taj group - a night's stay here would cost around 5000 per night.
