Driver from Delhi for Golden Triangle

by GlobeTrekr

Can anyone recommend a good, English speaking driver with ac car to possibly hire out of Delhi to drive within the Golden Triangle? As inexpensive as can be and how exactly would the driving work? Say I choose to stay in Agra for a couple nights, will the driver return for me?? What is the average cost of hiring a driver?

Is this recommendable or should trains be used? Just don't like the idea of having to haul our large bags around for every train trip.

Which areas of Delhi should be avoided? Which areas should not be missed?

(Please email me directly with driver info if you do not wish to share here on the forum). Thanks!

I had been to India last December. I started from Delhi and i took train to Amristar (golden temple)and then i travelled with car to agra, jaipur, jodhpur
and also bikaner and jaisalmer. I was very happy with my driver, first because he never push me to go to shops (i hate this) and he always was on time (really inusual in India). I contract my lodging and car&driver with indian travel agency. If you want i will give you the contact and you can ask. Nice trip to India!

I have noticed your comments on VT Mail and wondered if you could advise of a good agency that is not expensive in Delhi. Or is it easier to just turn up and book tours on a day to day basis? Thank you. Rose

THIS IF REPLY TO Rose101:

Rose-I have found that it is always better to have flexiblity when travelling in India. There are often delays that can cause havoc with previous arrangements.So my answer is- once you actually arrive, have a chat with the travel desk of your hotel- they are usually pretty good about arranging last minute travel, tours etc.I don't know what your budget is. Email me if you need more info.(I have travel info on my New Delhi page and Agra)
Happy travels

Hello there,
if you are still looking for someone...
i can recommend one to you-
he is an english speaking person with good references written in a diary with photos of ex-clients, which he carried with him in his car.
you may reach him at religiousplacesindiatravel@hotmail.com
it seems that he himself is a religious person, so he offers his driving services at throw away prices.
he charges more or less for the fuel. i mean, we got an innova car for Rs. 7.50(per kilometer) and Rs.50 for himself per day. no extra charges, no hidden costs.
if you wish to reach him, you may also give my reference. we just got back from haridwar tour (delhi to haridwar- 250 kms) for just Rs.3600 for 2 days.
Let me also compare the prices for you- you will get an Indica car (seats 4, including driver for Rs.7.50 per kilometer), a tavera (seats 7, including driver for nothing less than 10 Rs. per kilometer) and an Innova for around 13 Rs. per kilometer...
so we got something really cheap. thanks to his spiritual bend of mind.

Thanks and have a good trip...

Travel Tips for New Delhi

Wedding guest etiquette

by oisha

I thought I'd write this tip because I've done a fair few forum postings on it.

Firstly, don't be surprised if you're invited to a wedding and you don't know either of the people getting married. Delhi wedding celebrations are always BIG, with the idea that "the more the merrier". It's not uncommon for invited guests to bring along 1 or 2 others.

What should you wear? There are always several functions for one wedding. If you are attending the one where the marriage will take place, take along something to cover your head with. If you attending the sangeet, wear something you can dance in. For all functions, wear something your belly can comfortably expand in because there will be loads of irresistable food. Glamour is the order of the day, but if you're backpacking and didn't bring your ballgown, then accessories, costume jewellery, makeup and a salon hairdo will see you right.

If you are attending the reception, take a gift. The most usual gift given is cash. Ask the person who invited you how much would be appropriate. Whatever sum you decide to give, add one rupee for good luck and hand it to the bride or groom in a decorative envelope.

And take your movie camera because the wedding band is something you need to get footage of with audio.

In and around the city!

by intencity

Autoricshaws (three wheeler van types) are the best bet to go in and around the city. These are available from the wee hours in the morning till late night. These runs on meter and sometime in off meter, insist on fare chart when you pay. You can also avail a pre paid taxi or autorickshaw from pre paid counters at various points in the city, which is also a good and safe option. Delhi has numerous private car rental firms, such as Avis,Budget and Europcar around the city. Hire charges vary accordingly to add ons such as the make of the car, air conditioning and chauffeur facilities. Black and yellow top and private cabs are also available for hire from the local taxi stand. Cost full day Rs 550/- for 80 Km or 8 Hrs.: halfday Rs 350/- for 40 km or 4 hrs. AC Taxi (reco for summers) Rs 700/- for the full day. The luxury radio cabs (Dial-a-cab Tel. 1920; Metro radio cab, tel. 1923,) though more expensive, are a good option if you are in a hurry. The city also boasts of a Metro rail between Shahadra and Tees Hazari a short stretch covered in the starting.

Qutub Minar

by johnbradshawlayfield

Qutub Minar -- The origins of Qutab Minar are shrouded in controversy. Some believe it was erected as a tower of victory to signify the beginning of the Muslim rule in India. Others say it served as a minaret to the muezzins to call the faithful to prayer. No one can, however, dispute that the tower is not only one of the finest monuments in India, but also in the world. Qutab-ud-din Aibak, the first Muslim ruler of Delhi, commenced the construction of the Qutab Minar in 1200 AD, but could only finish the basement. His successor, Iltutmush, added three more storeys, and in 1368, Firoz Shah Tughlak constructed the fifth and the last storey.

Lal Quila

by johnbradshawlayfield

Red Fort or Lal Quila (Son-et-lumiere show) -- The mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, after ruling from Agra for elleven years, decided to shift to Delhi and laid the foundation stone of the Red Fort in 1618. It is called so because of the red stone with which it is built, the Red Fort is one of the most magnificent palaces in the world. India's history is also closely linked with this fort. It was from here that the British deposed the last Mughal ruler, Bahadur Shah Zafar, marking the end of the three century long Mughal rule. It was also from its ramparts that the first Prime Minister of India, pandit Jawharlal Nehru, announced to the nation that India was free form colonial rule.

FOLLOW GANDHI'S LAST FOOTSTEPS

by lynnehamman

On 30 January 1948, the life of this great man was ended by a Hindu zealot, who shot him at point-blank range.
He was on his way to pray with his followers, a daily occurance, in the gardens of Birla House- his last home. This museum, called Gandhi Smriti , is dedicated to his memory.
In the gardens there is a small pavilion - it is reached by following a pathway of concrete footsteps. These were Gandhi's footsteps, taken on his last walk. The pavilion, called The Martyr's Column", marks the spot where he fell, uttering the words " Hey Ram" (Oh God).
It is very peaceful, and the surrounding gardens are beautiful.
The Inner Museum has a theatre showing films of Gandhi's life and historical achievements. Photographs & letters line the walls, and personal memorobilia is preserved in glass cases.
His few posessions are testament to the simple life of a great man.
Truly, this is a place that everyone should visit. It is extremely moving, and fantastically interesting.
