Bunty replied to our e-mails promptly and before we left the UK for India he gave us the mobile number of our driver to contact on our arrival, and so it was that we met Amit (Bunty's brother) and we travelled for 14 days through Rajasthan in 2010 with him. Amit's driving was excellent, always on time, courteous and nothing was too much trouble. His English was very good and he had a good command of the language and had a good sense of humour and we did enjoy his company. He is honest, reliable and I would not have any hesitation in recommending him as a driver. He would make suggestions about different places we like to visit en route to our next stop and also recommend a restaurant we prefer to eat at rather than at the hotel for a change. If you ever travel to Jodhpur you must experience the Omelette Shop in the market (a recommendation by Amit) � and sit amidst the chaos enjoying an omelette between 2 slices of bread made on the spot, quite an experience. When we next travel to India we will certainly contact Bunty once again, and we wish him every success for the future.
Bunty came highly recommended to us by others that had travelled to India and used his services, and we were so happy that we went with Bunty around India! Bunty helped with planning our trip and recommending a suitable itinerary. We had a few special requests before our trip and during the trip, and he did his best to make them all happen. He told us exactly what we needed to know at every place we visited, which made the trip incredibly easy for us. He even seemed happy to spend many days shopping with 3 girls! Bunty helped to make us feel very safe in India. He stayed in touch with us when we went off for a few days without him and made sure we were ok. Our trip to India would not have been the same without Bunty. We definitely would recommend him to anyone that is traveling to India.
When I first realised I would be traveling to India alone, after some friends pulled out at the last minute, I had serious thoughts about canceling my trip. I had been to India before and loved it, so after remaining in contact with Bunty and being assured that I would be safe, I decided to go ahead with my holiday. I am so glad I did. Not only did Bunty provide great service in helping to organise my itinerary, but he also provided a terrific, (and as I soon found out) humorous driver named Deepak who navigated me safely through the hectic and busy traffic, managed to take me to all my destinations and activities, kept me entertained with his unique personality and who I now consider a friend. Whenever I decide to return to India there will be only one company I will contact and that is India Private Driver (Bunty) and I will also request the driving skills of Deepak. I appreciate the way Deepak has kept in contact with me even after my trip was over. That shows professionalism! Thanks guys for a wonderful and safe Indian experience and all the best for 2010.
I booked a 13 day trip around Rajasthan with India Private Driver for myself, my wife and her parents. Right from the start Bunty was a real help, suggesting an itinerary that included all the major highlights, plus some lesser known but fascinating stops. Our driver Avtar was wonderful and gave us some real insight into life in India. He was punctual, a careful driver and great fun to be with. He was also kind enough to include many stops outside our original itinerary � a really nice touch. The hotels Bunty booked for us were all fantastic. It was great to stay in such a variety of places, everything from a restored Haveli to a real-life Palace! We'd thoroughly recommend Bunty, Avtar and India Private Driver to anyone looking for a comfortable way to visit this amazing country.
Bunty was very professional and prompt in responding to all our emails full of questions, and was certainly instrumental in helping us arrange the perfect Rajasthan tour with a fabulous driver. We have to say that our driver Avtar is worth his weight in gold. Seriously! Our holiday was made so much better by having an experienced, friendly driver that speaks very good English. We always felt safe and in very good hands throughout our trip. Avtar was also our savior by going above and beyond to help us when we were stranded in Delhi as our train was cancelled at the last minute due to foggy conditions. We�d also like to add that the car was perfect, great size, in excellent condition, spotless and well looked after. We would not hesitate to recommend Bunty�s services and in particular Avtar. If you want a great driver who is safe, speaks good English and is a pleasure to travel with, go with Avtar. You will not be disappointed.
Bunty, first of all, thank you very much for your services. We are all very satisfied. We are very pleased with the 4-day tour of the Golden Triangle. Taj Mahal was of course breathtaking. I have wanted to visit this magnificent palace since I was 12 (when studying India at school) and now finally it became true! The whole tour gave us many facts about India - Avtar could answer all our questions about India and the different regions. We enjoyed the varied provinces and the rural areas. We also appreciated the safari very much, to be in nature with different birds and animals rather close. And so totally different from what we have in Sweden.
I heard about Bunty and India Private Driver via a friend, and at first I had little more than an email address to go on. But I fired off a query, and received a very quick, clear and useful response within a day. Just a couple more emails, and Bunty had a complete itinerary worked out that covered all the things I wanted to see, as well as some helpful suggestions about other local attractions that could be easily included. I thought I'd double-check Bunty's quote by seeing how cheaply I could book the same itinerary myself, but after comparing quoted hotel prices on the Internet for three or four places, and struggling with the complexity of Indian train timetables, I soon realised Bunty's prices were staggeringly better than reasonable. So the price was right, but would the service be any good? Well, from the moment we touched down in Delhi until we boarded our flight home in Mumbai. Our driver, Amit, was always on time, always attentive to our needs, always ready to adjust the schedule if some sight was really interesting and we wanted to spend more time in a palace, and always full of helpful advice on where to eat and how to handle Indian social niceties such as baksheesh. I've taken an overseas holiday every year for the past ten years in countries all over Asia and Africa, but my holiday in India with Bunty was easily the best value of them all. In fact, I regret not having left all of my travel arrangements to Bunty; I think he could have saved me considerably more money, time and angst.
We contacted the driver services of India Private Driver and Bunty arranged everything to perfection. His brother Amit waited for our arrival at the airport and accompanied us on our travels. Amit proved to be one of the best drivers in the whole country! He's an excellent and safe driver, he guided us to our hotels, had an absolute sound knowledge of the road network, organised local guides, and provided interesting information. He's a charming, friendly and service-minded man. India is an absolutely beautiful country, but we are sure that thanks to this excellent service we truly and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in full. We will not hesitate to contact www.indiaprivatedriver.com again, if we have the opportunity to return to this wonderful country. We highly recommend their service!
Planning a family trip to India with my husband and our 3 adult children (all in their 20s) was an exciting time for us. I really wanted and needed everything to go very smoothly! And thanks to Bunty and his advice, that's exactly what did happen. With the help and suggestions that were made by Bunty we were able to create and adjust our itinerary to include all the sights on our list. We traveled in 2009 and Bunty and I communicated via email for several months prior to that. He assigned one of his excellent trustworthy drivers to us and we had a terrific tour in India. Our driver, Prem, was waiting for us at the airport even though our flight was delayed by several hours! His car was always spotless, comfortable and in perfect condition. I cannot say enough wonderful and kind things about this professional and polite gentleman, Prem Singh. The most important... his driving skills were excellent! He always remained calm, which helped to create a very relaxed atmosphere for us and that is hard to do while every other car is following "India's road rules!!� We sadly said our goodbyes to Prem on the last day of our 8 day tour. We had shared stories and asked tons of questions about life and customs in India. He was wonderful! At another point in our India travels, our plans changed and we needed to hire a driver again. Since Prem was not available we had to hire an entirely different driving company. We got a car and a non-English speaking driver. The car seats were dirty, a seatbelt broken, the side mirrors had been ripped off and one tire was very bald. Not good!! Our advice: India is not a place to take chances with driving companies. Book your driver with www.indiaprivatedriver.com and you will be assured of a safe and pleasant trip!
What an amazing 16 day driving trip around Rajasthan. Our fabulous driver Avtar had to contend with 4 women - two 'mature' ladies and two 23 year old girls. He managed to balance everyone's needs with consideration and respect. We all felt very at ease and safe in Avtar's hands. Avtar spoke English perfectly and had even mastered the nuances of the Australian humour. Avtar was very familiar with all the destinations and was able to offer 'local' knowledge wherever we went. I would not hesitate to recommend Bunty's team and in particular our driver, Avtar.
My boyfriend and I are both Travel Agents, and were referred to India Private Driver through one of my clients. We were very happy with their services from beginning to end. Bunty was very helpful and answered all my questions through email quickly and efficiently. We changed our schedule many times before leaving and he was always very accommodating. When we arrived in India, our driver Amit was there to greet us with a smile. He had many suggestions for us along the way, and we had so much fun! It was great to have such a friendly driver who knew the areas we were going to well. We really enjoyed hearing all his stories and sharing ours. Thank you India Private Driver!
We spent 15 days travelling around Rajasthan in 2010 with our daughter of 13 years. Private driver was the only way to travel alone in India and we appreciated our driver Deepak. He was very professional and careful through the chaotic traffic. He was pleasant with a good sense of humor and he spoke English better than us, so it was sometimes funny! Deepak was a good guide and made us recommandations for visits, restaurants and even hotels. We enjoy his company and made a safe and pleasant trip all together. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company to French friends.
Thanks for the wonderful service provided to us. Amit, your brother has been a great host to us, we admire his patience and such great hospitality he provided. Our trip to India was magnificent except for the fact that we were conned by this one private tour guide in Fatehpur Sikri - we do hope Amit will tell him off the next time he sees the guy, Amit recognised his face. Our trip to India couldn't have been better, thanks to Amit's wonderful hospitality in entertaining us. I will definitely recommended your business to my friends and do wish you all the best.
India Private Driver is a great way to see and to get to know India. We found the business through internet, and are very pleased with them. They met our expectations, and they fulfilled all our needs. Bunty is professional, and gives a good price for what they offer (inc tax, fuels etc). Our driver, Avtar, was a responsable driver and we never felt unsafe. He showed us nice hotels and resturants, but was also open for our suggestions. We got to see what we wanted, and were free to skip the tourist places we did not want to visit. Over all we are pleased with Bunty and his crew, and can highly recommend India Private Driver!
We - two girls - also found Bunty by chance on the internet and have chosen to book our 10-days Rajasthan tour through him. And glad we did so! Our driver Manu did not only show us the most popular tourist places but also places "off the beaten track" which would have been hard to reach by public transport - especially if you're only around for ten days. From the first moment on we felt safe with our driver, and as we have never been to India before we were quite shocked about the busy streets - as probably most tourists are. But thanks to Manu we also felt safe on the streets and survived. He is an incredibly good and experienced driver and always found his way through cows and camels. Thank you again for your professional service, all your prompt answers, the good intinerary for that short time we had for our trip and the very easy way of handling everything beforehand. India is a lovely beautiful country with amazing people and charm. Thank you for showing us all that nice places and for many many unforgettable memories!
My husband, two of his daughters, and I spent sixteen days in India in 2010. Our driver, Bobby, was booked through Bunty, and we couldn't be more pleased with him. At all times, Bobby was pleasant, courteous, and professional, and navigated us with ease through seemingly impassable streets teeming with a mixture of automobiles, rickshaws, bicycles, motorcycles, cattle, goats, camels, elephants, and pedestrians. From the beginning, we all felt very comfortable with Bobby, and with his ability to guide us to wherever we wished to go. Having a private driver in India is absolutely the best way to experience the culture, the people, the sites, and the natural beauty the country has to offer. This also allowed us to create our own itinerary, and to have the flexibility to make changes at whatever point we might choose. Bobby was an invaluable resource in his ability to explain his country's customs, religions, history and politics, etc., and his knowledge of the region made navigation to our desired destinations a breeze. We would not hesitate to recommend Bunty's services, and our driver, Bobby, to anyone who might be planning a holiday to India.
In a nutshell, we had a wonderful visit to Rajasthan. Avtar made the adventure truly remarkable. He was a pleasure to be with. Knowing his way around helped quite a bit plus he knew great local restaurants in most of the towns we visited. He is an excellent driver and never once were we uncomfortable riding with him. It was wonderful having a cooler iced down every day and stocked with sodas, water, etc. Not having to worry about luggage was a major relief. Avtar would instruct the hotel staff then make sure the bags were back in the car before we took off for our next destination. No muss no fuss. In all we would recommend Bunty and his services to anyone who cares to contact us. We can't wait to get back to India.
Dear Bunty, I wanted to say thank you for an amazing trip. After horrible experiences using a driver in Southern India, my friend and I arrived in New Delhi unsure of what to expect. From the moment Amit met us at the airport, we knew we were in the best of hands. Amit is an incredibly skilled, punctual driver who is completely fluent in English. Further, he is a genuinely nice person with an amazing sense of humor. He made sure our trip (Agra�Fatehpur Sikri) was a wonderful experience. He even found us a knowledgeable guide to show us both of the sites. When our trip took less time than expected, he showed us around New Delhi and found us a bar where we could get a drink before whisking us off to the airport to catch our flight. Add to this the reasonable fixed rates for the car service and it adds up to a first-class trip. Thank you so much for making our final days in India so memorable. When we return to India, we will only use indiaprivatedriver.com.
We used Bunty�s service and found Bunty helpful, efficient and totally honest from start to finish. Manu was our driver around Rajasthan for two weeks in 2010. An excellent, safe driver. Manu was always punctual, pleasant, polite and well-presented. He offered advice and assistance with hotels and visits but was not pushy and was happy to adapt to our wishes. A good reliable companion on our fantastic trip around Rajasthan. Unintrusive and really quite funny at times! We would thoroughly recommend him.
We found Bunty's Services of India Private Driver very helpful, efficient, honest right from start to finish. From the very beginning Bunty was very honest regarding what is included in the program and was able to provide helpful alternatives along the way. Our driver was Bobby who was extraordinarily helpful from beginning to the end. I was very nervous booking the private driver from the start but as soon as I got off the train there was Bobby with our sign and we where whisked off to begin a whirlwind trip for two weeks. Bobby was very reliable and extremely punctual (unfortunately I was not!!) and was able to provide us with handy hints along the way and able to arrange absolutely anything we wanted to do. I would definately recommend Bunty and his services and I believe having a private driver is definitely the way to go - it enables flexibility in your itinerary and you are able to create your own holiday and move at your own pace. I am a travel agent in Australia and I also believe the pricing is very good value for money - and the service is even better.
This was our first trip to India, 2010, and we wanted to arrange a tour that didn't involve being stuck with a package tour. After researching the internet we found Bunty's website and booked. True to his word, Bunty had arranged for our driver Deepak to meet us from the airport and for the agreed fixed price, Deepak was our driving companion for the next week. Hugely entertaining, friendly, funny and knowledgeable, Deepak took us safely (despite the best efforts of the rest of the road population) from Delhi to Amritsar, Simla and back. Despite some very early starts that we needed in order to get from A to B and notably to catch the train from Kalkar to Simla (a must...!), he was always punctual, good humoured, trustworthy and raring to go. We had a fabulous time and because we could relax knowing that Deepak would do everything possible to make the best of our short visit, I would recommend him to anyone. Bunty also called a couple of times to confirm everything was going well. If you are searching the internet for this type of service, then look no further.... Bunty is your man.
We hired Bunty's services for a period of 7 days to travel from Delhi-Agra-Jaipur-Pushkar. Our driver Anil was waiting for us at the airport upon arrival, despite our flight having been delayed for an hour. A safe driver is absolutely necessary on the chaotic streets of India. In Anil's car we felt absolutely safe and had a very smooth ride in his car. Besides his impeccable driving skills, Anil went above and beyond what was necessary from answering any questions we had, to driving from 9am-3am at one point, and proved to be a great companion on the trip. Utilizing a service such as Bunty's makes things simple in that the hotel, driver, parking, tolls, and guides were all included. While the service was efficient and very smooth, the only caveat I would put is to make sure to do sufficient research beforehand so as to ensure no suprises - whether this is from price, attractions, or closing hours of the places you'd like to visit. For a hassle free trip, Bunty will be a safe bet.
We contacted Bunty after reading the recommendations on the website, and were very pleased we did. We had very prompt and helpful replies to all of our queries and were very happy with the service provided before leaving for India to the trip itself. We felt the price was good, the service was friendly and covered everything we needed which assured us in our booking. Our driver was Sudarshan. He was a great driver and a lovely person to spend our trip with. He was always on time and was polite and helpful. His English was good and he was able to give us interesting information on the journey. On occasions he suggested additional places to visit, which were lovely, but if we chose not to take up his suggestion he was quite happy with that and was never pushy. We felt very confident in his driving and felt we were in very safe hands. Thank you for a wonderful trip - we will certainly be in contact again for our next trip to India and would happily recommend this company to anyone visiting India.
We decided to book our two week trip to Delhi, Rajasthan and Agra independently and not through a travel agent. Having booked our hotels, we found Bunty on the Internet, and, on the back of the recommendations on his website, booked a driver with his company for the full trip. Bunty was extremely responsive and helpful during the booking process. Our driver, Avtar, was excellent. We felt like we were in very safe hands on the road, and his English was excellent. He was waiting for us when we landed at 3am in New Delhi, although Bunty had previously provided his contact details in case there were any problems. Avtar was very good with suggestions of things to see, very flexible and always on time (even though we often weren't!). We would definitely recommend booking through Bunty for anyone travelling to India.
My boyfriend and I booked a trip during for seven days. We were picked up in Delhi and travelled to Udaipur via Agra, Jaipur, Pushkar and Jodhpur. Our driver was Manohar "Manu". Although the car itself was not great by Western standards, it had air conditioning and was always very clean and tidy. Manu was polite and friendly, and really helped with the trip, taking us to some real sights off the beaten track and even ensuring that we got some great samosas at local prices. He was helpful and informative and really helped make the trip such a pleasure. Needless to say he did take us to a few shops that weren�t on the itinerary but all were of a high quality and he was perfectly accepting of the times when we didn�t want to purchase anything. I wouldn�t hesitate to recommend the company again although I would bear in mind the obligatory tip (of at least 10%) isn�t included in the quote.
My girlfriend and I recently spent 2 weeks touring the Rajasthan region, and hiring a driver through Bunty was the best decision we made. Bunty was very fast to reply to the emails, and was able to book us a tour with hotels at the last minute, which was greatly appreciated. Our driver, Suresh, was always very dependable, professional, and courteous. We always felt safe around him, and his driving skills allowed us to enjoy our trip without being stressed about the typical traffic in India. He was very knowledgeable about his country and answered all of our "touristy" questions. I would highly recommend him and Bunty's services to everyone traveling in India.
I contacted Bunty after reading a few reviews on his website as it seemed to be a professional and well managed business, I can now say that I am happy we did. We communicated via email and set out our itinerary with where we wanted to travel between and what we would like to see, on arriving in India we decided to change our trip slightly to include 1 extra location and this was achieved with a little extra cost. One of our concerns was that none of us travelling could speak the local language and Bunty ensured that we had an English speaking driver. Our drivers name was Avtar and was always prompt and flexible, suggesting places to see and where to eat. We felt that we were in safe hands and would recommend booking a driver through Bunty to anyone travelling to India.
My family and I had the priviledge of travelling through Delhi, Agra, Hariduwar and Jaipur in 2010 with indiaprivatedriver.com. The service from the outset was impeccable. Bunty answered my e-mails promptly and professionally, offering suggestions so to make our itinerary practical and get the most of our holiday in India. We travelled in a group of 5 with 2 young boys and our driver Avatar was very mindful of this, making stops and enquiring about children's well-being at all times. He had waited for approx 3hrs in Delhi winter as our flight from Mumbai had been delayed. His English was very good and was a fountain of knowledge when it came to local customs, good restaurants, bargaining, being wary of security and unsavoury characters to avoid. On long journeys, Avatar was excellent by pointing out places of interest, local cultures and interesting people. His good sense of humour made tiring journeys worthwhile. Avatar was especially kind when my 7 year old became nauseous and car sick en route to Hariduwar on a 6.5 hr journey. His compassion and understanding was appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending Bunty and his team for travel and tour needs when in India. Their professionalism, integrity and trustworthiness in this business is notable and highly commendable. Thank you for a wonderful family holiday and we will definitely recommend you to all our family and friends.
My husband and I and a couple of friends were in India in December. We used Bunty’s services for the first leg of our trip – Delhi, Agra, Jaipur. From the time we were picked up from our hotel, we felt safe and appreciated having someone accompanying us on our trip. Mukesh, our driver was friendly, funny and very personable. Driving in India is crazy mayhem, but we always felt safe with Mukesh behind the wheel! We would highly recommend booking a trip with Bunty and his company.
