Our wonderful holiday to India started when we first contacted Vijay at Times India Travels. Our friends had inspired us to think about venturing to India and had suggested the possibility of hiring a car and driver to get about. We found Times India Travels on Trip Advisor through Google and were immediately impressed with the amount of quality customer reviews, which were clearly real experiences by travellers like ourselves. This gave us the confidence to use Vijay’s service and from the moment we first contacted him last April, the service has been professional and reliable. Everything worked out exactly as planned and we would not have a moment’s hesitation in recommending Times India Travels to others. In fact, we loved our journey through Delhi and Rajasthan so much, we are already talking to Vijay about a potential trip to Kerala next year.

Early on, after booking our flights, we decided to simply book a car and driver with Times India Travels for the duration of our holiday – from collection at Delhi airport to the end of our holiday. We elected to take care of selecting our own hotels through During our holiday we were given helpful suggestions about when a local guide would be invaluable/necessary and the rest of the time we were happy to look after ourselves. It has to be said that in addition to the excellent arrangements by Vijay, our holiday was made special by our driver, Mahendra. Although his command of English was a little limited (but adequate), his driving skills were exceptional. He took very good care of us throughout our 16-day adventure and we always felt in safe hands. He was attentive, caring and above all, made us feel special. The car was very clean and comfortable and water and sweets were provided every day
