Raj was very friendly, spoke great English and put in very good effort (compared to our friends driver, who was very lazy). He knows Jaipur very, very well. He had a nice spirit and laughed a lot. He was entertaining and I think he’s got a good heart - about as honest as you’ll get being a tourist in India.

Jaipur was our first destination (and first time) in India so we didn’t know what to expect, but we’ve quickly realised that Indians will try to rip you off at any opportunity - tuk tuk drivers are especially known for this. As a general rule, when you ask what the cost is, drivers will tell you to pay whatever amount you feel is suitable - naturally you’ll keep asking and then they’ll say ‘my usual price per day is...’ and this will be higher than it should be. If you have them over multiple days, they’ll also ask you to pay at the end - they do this so psychologically you feel like you’ve spent more hours with them by the time it comes to paying in the hope you’ll pay them more. I suggest paying as you go along to allow yourself the flexibility to change your mind. Remember you’re paying for a service and this person is not your friend. They ALL have sad life stories but you’re not going to make this better by paying them over the odds.

In general, a single ride of less than 5km should be no more than 150rup. If you’re having them for longer, for say 6-7 hours, then 600-800 seems to be the going rate. However, remember, you may have just a few hours on some days and have drops back to your hotel in between. We paid 2500 rupees in total for the following (which is quite generous):

Day 1 - drop to hotel late morning (1km distance)
Day 2 - 4 hours in AM - 3 hours in PM
Day 3 - 7 hours in AM - 2 hours in PM
Day 4 - drop to bus station (3km distance)

Tuk tuk drivers earn commission from places they recommended - whether it’s textile shops, restaurants or tour operators - if the driver is recommending it, they are getting a commission. Raj took us to a shop called Fair Deal Textiles and they took massive advantage - we were absolutely ripped off. I told Raj about this and he has promised to never take another customer there again - so please do not go there.

Raj was fun & friendly and we felt safe with him. However, always keep your wits about you when in India as no matter how nice a person, they see a foreigner and it means money.

We had a great couple of days in Jaipur with Raju! He took us to see the city’s highlights as well as a few of its secrets! Raju is kind, honest, patient, very funny, helpful and an excellent driver. He also had some great recommendations for good quality shops, which is essential with so much choice!

Raju picked us up from the train station and was our guide from then on. Great driver, was very patient with us and helped us see everything we wanted to. Plus great conversation and lots of fun! Can take you to all the sights and gave expert advice about prices and how to deal with hassle - highly recommend! Thanks Raju!
