Elke and Karim with Rattan, March/April 2009

Our journey through Rajasthan went pretty good. The route was more or less how I had planned and suggested. We did stay in Jodhpur and Bikaner for only one night.

In Mandawa we made a visit with a local guide, in Khuri we took a camel ride, in Ranakpur we took a beautiful walk . and we also took a walk in the bird park in Keoladeo.

For us, the most beautiful city was Udaipur. Ranakpur was a delightful stop. It was very pleasant to see some nature and the walk with the guide was incredibly lovely. Agra and its Taj Mahal has also been unforgettable. Furthermore, we were also very impressed with Fatehpur Sikri, the fort and the hindu temple in Bikaner and the city palace in Jaisalmer.

We were less imposed by Pushkar. Except for the shops, there is not much to see there. We also did not like the camel ride in Khuri. It was an enriching experience, but unfortunately our guides were not very communicative.

Anyway, it was a very nice trip and we will be thinking of it for many times to come. We were very glad we chose a car including a driver. Rattan knows the area very well and he has good suggestions, which is quite nice. He also told us which hotels were the best. Especially the guest house in Jodhpur and the Bikaner hotel were super great.

Rattan was an easy person to be around and we will certainly recommend him to people we know who are thinking about going on a trip to India. We want to thank you [Rob] for your involvement in arranging a driver.
