Highly recommend! Really amazing experience! We're glad to have met Sevinder for our trip to India! He welcomed us with floral leis, was punctual, responsive, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. For example, on the road, Sevinder would slow down just a bit so that we can get a good photo or video, many times without us asking. He shared historical facts, answered any questions we had, and made conversation that was not overbearing. His English is great so communication was never an issue. We visited New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur so there were multiple 4-5 hour drives. The SUV was comfortable (for 3 people max in my opinion) and clean as well. We would highly recommend Sevinder to anyone needing a ride around India, thank you again Sevinder!

Retour sur voyage au Rajasthan avec Private Driver India Nous revenons d'un voyage au Rajasthan effectué avec Kumar Sevinder. Nous avions choisi sa compagnie à la lecture des nombreux commentaires positifs et après de nombreux contacts téléphoniques. Nous n'avons pas été déçus. Comme convenu Kumar nous attendait patiemment à l'aéroport car compte tenu de la situation sanitaire, les formalités ont été fort longues. Nous avons apprécié son choix de l'hôtel dans un quartier très calme et sécurisé. Des le lendemain matin nous avons commencé notre circuit. A chaque étape nous avons apprécié ses choix en ce qui concerne les hôtels, ses conseils de visite et sa conduite très sécurisante . Compte tenu de la crise qui devenait de plus en plus inquiétante et sur les conseils de Kumar, nous avons dû précipiter notre retour. Cependant il a fait en sorte que nous visitions un maximum de sites avant leur fermeture. Malgré ce retour précipité nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour et en partie grâce à lui qui nous a préservé de tout climat anxiogène. En bref, nous ne pouvons que recommander vivement de faire appel à ses services, d'autant que travaillant pour son propre compte, la situation va être très compliquée pour lui dans les mois à venir. Nous avons été ses derniers clients avant un temps qui risque d'être long. Nous avons rencontré un chauffeur, nous avons quitté un ami.

Happy, our awesome driver!!! Touring Rajasthan with 3 strangers from different countries for 10 days wasn’t easy but Happy our driver made it smooth for us changing itineraries and stuff. He gave us some pointers on how to survive as a foreigner in India. He’s a mellow man and he took care of us until the end. I would choose him again for Diwali in India this year.

Voyage avec chauffeur privé au Rajasthan Nous revenons juste de notre voyage en Inde. Cette fois 15 jours au Rajasthan. Nous voyageons très souvent et organisons toujours notre auto-tour par nous même. Nous avons facilement trouvé notre chauffeur sur les sites web. A la lecture des commentaires et en voyant les photos, se fut une évidence que Sevinder KUMAR serait du voyage. Tout a été très facile ,un email pour la première prise de contact ou nous lui avons communiqué notre programme. Un deuxième pour le choix de la voiture. Un troisième pour valider son offre. Retour de mail très rapide . Pour le paiement , rien de plus simple. Paiement sur place en 2 ou 3 fois ( Euros, Roupies , dollars ). Avec Sevinder tout est facile, il nous a donné de très bon conseils ( massages, restaurants , lieux de visites complémentaires ) Il est à l'écoute discret et très agréable, de plus il conduit parfaitement bien sûr les " Routes" parfois chaotiques de l'Inde. Il s'adapte à votre rythme pour les horaires de départ tout en tenant compte des contraintes d'horaires pour les visites de site. Dans chaque lieux de visite, si vous le souhaitez, il a un correspondant guide officiel qui parle français ou anglais.Il négocie pour vous le tarif ( hors pourboires ). Ce qui facilite beaucoup votre voyage et votre organisation sans prise de tête avec des pseudo guides qui vous harcèlent souvent. On a passé 15 jours sans encombres on s'est laisse conduire en toute sérénité. Sevinder est le chauffeur qu'il vous faut pour une première visite au Rajasthan. Nous recommandons , vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés. Marie Line & Xavier Riad Bab Aylen à Marrakech et Mas de la garance en Provence.

7 Tage durch Rajasthan mit Sevinder Kumar als Fahrer und Reisebegleiter Wir, eine vierköpfige Familie mit zwei erwachsenen Söhnen, machten in der letzten Dezemberwoche 2019 mit Sevinder Kumar eine einwöchige Tour durch Rajastan. Er holte uns in Jaisalmer am Flughafen ab, und gemeinsam fuhren wir, mit 6 Übernachtungen, entlang der Route Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Ranakhpur, Pushkar, Jaipur und über Agra zurück nach Delhi. Mr. Kumar war nicht nur ein ganz ausgezeichneter und ruhiger Fahrer. Für uns war er auch ein geschätzter Begleiter, der uns Vieles über Land, Leute und Kultur erzählte und auf alle unsere Fragen eine gute Antwort hatte. Daneben führte er uns mit seiner guten Ortskenntnis in eine ganze Reihe hervorragender Restaurants - egal ob mitten in einer Stadt, an einer Autobahnraststätte oder an einem Schnellimbiss entlang des Weges. Wir haben in Indien selten so gut gegessen wie mit seinen Empfehlungen, und meine Frau schwärmt bis heute noch von einem ausgezeichneten Lassie, das er uns von einem Verkaufsstand spontan ins Auto brachte. Er spricht hervorragend Englisch und war in seinen vielen Jahren als Fahrer bereits in ganz Nordindien, Nepal und Bhutan unterwegs. Für den weiteren Verlauf unserer Reise konnte er uns noch wertvolle Hinweise zur Sicherheitslage und Empfehlungen für einen erfolgreichen Ablauf unseres weiteren Programms geben. Er hat uns auch einen seiner Kollegen für eine Tagestour in Delhi vermittelt, und auch mit diesem waren wir sehr zufrieden. Wir erinnern uns noch heute gerne an ihn, und wenn wir wieder irgendwo in Nordindien reisen, ist er garantiert unser bevorzugter Fahrer.

El guía perfecto Si vienen a India lo mejor que pueden hacer es contratar un conductor privado para toda su estancia. Es lo más cómodo y seguro, y sinceramente te costará incluso menos dinero que alquilar un coche o ir en taxis, tren o lo que sea, y lo que para cualquier viajero es lo más importante, se ahorra muchísimo tiempo. Y el mejor de todos sin duda es Kumar. Estuvo cada día con nosotros( 5 dias),nos recogió en aeropuerto. Te lleva a todos los lugares que le pidas según tu itinerario y preferencias, no tienes que preocuparte por las maletas ni el aparcamiento, él se encarga de todo. También te lleva a comer donde quieras y te espera lo que necesites. Nunca se enfada, incluso cuando le haces esperar más de 1 hora la acordada,jeje. En cada lugar tiene un guía de habla española que te acompaña y te explica la historia, cultura y monumentos. Además te hace todas las fotos que le pidas y te propone otras que ni siquiera podrías imaginar. Fue una increíble experiencia que de verdad agradecemos a Kumar. Gracias por ser tan servicial y amable. Por favor, no duden en contratarlo. No se arrepentirán. Y de precio ni hablar, ni le regateen por favor que seguro será el precio justo muy por debajo de otras opciones . Volveremos seguro y será con Kumar. Nos quedo más que ver en india y también Nepal. Nuestro viaje fue( Jaipur, Agra y Delhi).
