He refused to take us to the place which we asked him to take. Hence was not that happy with our Driver but the beauty of Rajasthan made us to overpass ! We had a great trip to Rajasthan, it was one of our best trip. No words to describe the beauty of Rajasthan. Thanks to Carlo travels for making our trip the memorable one.
