Tineke and John with Ajay, October / November 2013

Everything went very well again. Ajay is a quiet, likeable man who does things in a well-considered way. We felt very safe in the car with him. We were very fortunate to have him as our driver.

This time we visited Rishikesh, Haridwar, Shimla, Manali, Dharamshala, Mandi and Amritsar and also some smaller towns. The last two days we visited Rewalsar (because of the Tibetans), Tattepani (thermal springs) and Delhi.

All destinations were great really. The roads that lead there were often bumpy and dusty, but we always managed to reach the hotel in good time eventually.

India is always fascinating. Perhaps next time we will go to Sikkim and Darjeeling… Unfortunately, you probably won’t have any drivers there. That’s a pity, because this concept makes travelling in India a lot more comfortable.
