" We had a tour of Delhi, Agra and much of Rajasthan over 10 days in October 2014. The itinerary was meticulously planned and hotels individually selected with Shamlar's expertise and guidance from London. From the moment we landed in Delhi to departing from Udaipur, we were very well taken care of by each of the Compass reps in the cities, who were happy to make changes and adjustments as we wished. We also found the English speaking guides knowledgeable and made the tours interesting, each in their own way. Our special thanks to the driver, Surjit Singh (a sikh) and assistant who were extremely patient, flexible and took special care in ensuring the journeys and trips were comfortable. The excellent planning and constant monitoring of each step of our tour by Shankar, and the team is much appreciated. Anyone who wants a smooth trouble free trip in India, we would thoroughly recommend Delighted Journey. They have very high standards. "Michel Sentiac & Laura
