“If you’re looking for a fantastic adventure with a company that will treat you like family, look no further”
We had the great fortune to have Tarun as a tour guide for a few hours in Delhi. Having been to Delhi before, I was not expecting much of the two hours we had with him but he managed to surprise me with a unique experience. From winding through the streets on motorbike in typical Indian style to getting a peaceful retreat in a Sikh temple learning about Sikhism, we felt like we were being shown around town by a close friend rather than a stranger. In the brief time we were with him, we found out about the humble beginnings of this family-run business, some favourite moments of his childhood and his passions about travel. It was a very refreshing change from the typical outing where people get herded from place to place like sheep and just told bland and boring facts. It definitely made the experience all the more special.
We got in a bind later that evening with train delays and gave Tarun a call to see if he can arrange a driver to get us to the next city in our trip. We thought it was a long shot since we called him very last minute… at 7 p.m…. On a weekend… And it was a 5 hour drive one way to our destination. But he said: “No problem” and quoted us a very reasonable price for the ride. Next thing we know, he’s meeting us at the train station with the full intent of driving us personally! He even got us to his house to make sure we got a healthy and clean dinner… Made by his mom! On top of it all, we got to meet his fantastic family!
If you are even considering India at all, don’t hesitate to contact this company. This is run by a guy who is passionate in what he does and will treat even a person who he’s met only a couple of hours like family. I would absolutely go on a tour again with Tarun next time I visit India.
