Kankarwa HaveliA beautiful and excellent situation. It would have been good to have tea making facilities. We found the food to be disappointing and the climb to the dining room hard. Castle Bijapu A wonderful and authentic building in a busy and interesting village. We much enjoyed our birdwatching expedition.We had an excellent room, friendly staff, good food and all in all really great hospitality.
Bundi: Dev NivasNo tea or coffee making facilities but our room was adequate. Very accommodating staff who enabled us to eat our meals downstairs which was a relief! Bundi is such an interesting town with a lot of beautiful things to see and places to explore.
Rawla JojawarOur room needed updating - no tea or coffee making facilities but we understood this would be part of their updating process. The food was adequate but not outstanding. We enjoyed the ambience and the hospitality, also its position in the middle of a thriving village.
Bishnoi villageCharmingly rustic. Very accommodating staff - we had two excellent Jeep safaris and the food was authentic and the best.
Thar Utsav OsianAn educational ‘experience’ . We are still recovering from the camel ride which we thoroughly enjoyed! The food was good and the entertainment especially excellent. Chandelao Garh We had a very well appointed and comfortable room. The food was very good. Very pleasant staff and wonderfully relaxing surroundings. We especially have enjoyed our visits to the Sunder Rang women’s cooperative who sell wonderful artisan handicrafts.
2. Car and Driver. The car was always clean throughout. Mr Singh was a very safe driver but as per our comments to you the other day we found communication with him difficult. However he was always very courteous.
CommentsSue and I have thoroughly enjoyed our trip exploring the lesser known places in Rajasthan. Our pace of travel has been purposely slow so that we can appreciate the different places. We thoroughly enjoyed the choice of places to stay. It is difficult to decide which place has been the best they all have been truly wonderful. Thank you Ramesh very much for organising such a hugely enjoyable trip. Also our thanks again for your hospitality when we were in Udaipur. We much enjoyed meeting your wife and Yogish (spelling!). We are not looking forward to going home! We look forward to seeing you in England on your next trip.
With kind regards and very best wishes -
Penny and Sue.
Thank you for organising such a beautiful holiday for us. All 5 of us are taking beautiful memories of Rajasthan with us.
The coach you gave was cozy and comfortable for 5 of us with huge luggage. We all have only two suggestions for your coach- please add Wi-Fi and heater in it. We couldn’t get any better driver than Harishbhai. He was cooperative, always on time, pointed good places to buy things we required and took good care of us. After we left him on 26th we missed him a lot.
All accommodations booked were unique ones. We enjoyed our stay with all of them. I was not happy with Devi Bhavan on one thing. They were cooperative in few things but didn’t cooperate in giving grace time (not even couple of hours. We saw they had empty rooms) to my sister. Her train was at 7:40pm. She had to spend time in their garden from noon onwards.
Longewala was a bit disappointing trip. When I looked for this place online, no where it said that NRI are not allowed entrance. We all were holding OCI, in spite of that they didn’t let us enter.
Once again, thank you. Happy New Year in advance and all the best.

Thank you Ramesh Dashora, for this unforgettable trip! We had a wonderful time in Rajasthan and appreciated your help to make this trip so beautiful, safe and special! We highly recommend your agency to anybody who would like to have a unique and tailor made tour !
Hello Ramesh. I am delighted to recommend your services as tour organiser and guide. Our trip with you was a wonderful experience, my third to India, and though all were good, this was surely the best. Your meticulous planning, selection and checking out of the accommodation, so delightfully varied, and the range of interesting places to visit, made the trip one I will never forget. And your sense of humour, patience and flexibility to accord with our wishes and interests made it even better. Congratulations!
And it was good to meet your family and get to know something about your life too. So pleased for Yogish and Pinky - may they share many blessings in their marriage.
We had a wonderful trip organised by Ramesh to the magical historical and cultural sights of northern Rajasthan. In particular, we saw how traditional skills are still widely used from, exquisite embroideries, intricate stone carvings, and fine paintings, painted with just an eye lash from the camels eye lashes.
We saw the amazing splendour or forts where no expense had been spared in providing the most lavish of palaces.
We stayed in heritage hotels establishments with their own history. Large and small, fort or family home, they were all a delight to experience.
The knowledge Ramesh willingly imparted was freely given and spoken from the heart just added to a most enjoyable and memorable experience.
We will return and cannot wait for our next trip with Ramesh.
Hello Ramesh, lovely to hear from you. I had tried to send an e mail to thank you for such a wonderful trip, but i don't think it went through. So many happy memories of India experience, i feel very lucky to have been part of it. Thankyou for all your hard work looking after us and making it the best trip ever. There are some friends who are interested in visiting India, and i will give them your card and an itinerary of our trip and hopefully they will get back to you.
My very best wishes to you all, and a special congratulations to Yogish and his new wife, very happy for them. Gill
My first tour and introduction to India 🇮🇳 was in 2007. My sister Marion invited me to join her (her second tour). Ramesh was our local guide.. We were a small group of five. First night we stayed at the wonderful Fort Kesroli. We then spent a super time travelling around in places like Bikaner,, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Rohet, Jaipur and fab Udaipur! Nothing was too much trouble for Ramesh. He was so good at checking out all aspects of travel and accommodation,, He was generous, kind, fun and professional. Well, since that first tour, M&I have been hooked! . We have visited different parts of India, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2015, and February 2018. Last tour we managed to see (at last) the amazing Taj Mahal. I thoroughly recommend using Parul Tours and Travels.
Great experience. Everything went smoothly, from picking me up at airport to transporting me to Agra and then showing me the sites. Friendly, professional and well organized. Definitely would use Parul Tours & Travels again. Highly recommended.
I thoroughly recommend the services of Ramesh Dashora at Parul Tours and Travel.
Ramesh has, over the last decade or so, planned a whole range of specialised trips for myself and small groups of travelling companions.
The start of the process is usually a conversation with Ramesh that begins with.........'I have read about this potter/artisan/village/little known historical site.....can we go there?'. Ramesh's answer is always 'of course!'.
Ramesh's planning is always meticulous. He easily tunes in to the specific interests of those that he is travelling with and will go that extra mile to make everyone's individual experience really special.
My groups have now travelled throughout Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, Sikkim........the list gets longer! We have enjoyed the quirky and unusual but also explored the iconic sights of india in unique and wonderful ways.
Planning for our next adventure is underway. It would not be possible or nearly as enjoyable, without the guidance and companionship of Ramesh Dashora.
