    On the 26th January, our second day in Jaipur we met Sonu in his tuk tuk. Wow, what a stroke of luck, because over 5 weeks later and our stay this time in India is coming to an end, we realise that we could not have managed this wonderful holiday without all his help. We were last in Jaipur 14 years ago and Sonu personally took us back to sites we wanted to visit again and to several that we have visited for the first time. He also helped us to organise train and plane tickets for our various excursions. Even while we were away, he phoned us to make sure we had arrived and everything was OK. While Sonu drives a tuk tuk, he has been more like a tour operator and best of all, he has been our friend.. Thank you Sonu. We have no hesitation in recommending him to any future travellers to Jaipur and we will certainly contact him before we return next.

    Third visit in Jaipur after so much time in India (2years) and so happy to meet Sonu again. He s great even more than amazing guy. Respectful and so helping. Always present to give his best. Thanks God for meet people like him. Isn’t easy to find the good one. But he s the good one. Please use his knowledge as much as possible. He s the best driver I ever have after two years spend in this powerful country.
    Thanks Sonu ji my friend..

    Je viens de bordeaux. J’ai vécu deux ans en Inde à Delhi principalement et je peux vous assurer que trouver un chauffeur sympa et honnête n’est pas chose aisée. En Inde. Alors vous pouvez lui faire confiance les yeux fermés !

    I met Sonu by chance during my 6 night stay in Jaipur. He was friendly, honest and very accommodating to my needs as an Aussie tourist abroad. A couple days before I met Sonu I fell sick from some dodgy street food, and was feeling quite ordinary and vulnerable.. by some miracle Sonu suggested an Aryuvedic massage and I took him up on it. So after 90min and 3000rupies later I was feeling sooo much better (Kerala Aryudeda).

    India can be very intense and one runs the risk of becoming jaded and skepical with regards to the dozens of people that will inevitably approach you in order to sell you something. Sonu however genuinely wants to help, and I feel blessed to have met him along my journey.

    Lo resumo: De puta madre!!!
    Sonu es una persona muy divertida, siempre feliz, sin complicarse la vida!
    Lo conocí una mañana y hemos podidos compartir tuk-tuk, curiosas y buenas conversaciones, y comida local! Os va a enseñar tanto la parte turística como la mas cercana y real, y lo mejor.. Os va a sacar una tremenda sonrisa!
    Un tio de “puta madre” vaya, espero que podais descubrir porque lo digo!!

  5. Sara says:

    Sonu è stato davvero molto gentile ed ha soddisfatto le nostre aspettative. In una giornata ci ha portato in tutti i luoghi d’interesse di Jaipur, dandoci molti consigli, informazioni e spiegazioni. Lo consigliamo per chi volesse fare un tour divertente ma allo stesso tempo professionale. Inglese ottimo!!

  6. Javier Martinez says:

    Nos ayudo mucho en todo para conocer Jaipur, competente, simpático, profesional, buen conductor . Muy recomendable.

  7. Mary wyer says:

    I would thoroughly recommend Sonus transport Services. He is well priced and very fair and honest. He helped us to get a taxi from Jaipur to Ranthambor and then to Delhi, safely and at a fair price. He is trustworthy and provides a fantastic service.

  8. Nathan says:

    Avec Sonu, c’est plus qu’un tour en Tuk Tuk, c’est un moment de rigolade et de decouverte de la culture indienne. On echange, on prend du plaisir a etre en Tuk Tuk.
    Merci Sonu

  9. Daniela says:

    Sonu nos fue a buscar al tren cuando llegamos a Jaipur. En ese momento nos hablo y nos dio la bienvenida a la ciudad con una amabilidad superlativa algo que necesitabamos ya que en ese momento no confiabamos en nadie sentimos un gran alivio con su presencia y su gran sonrisa. Sumado a este tiene una personalidad muy simpatica incluso diciendo chistes en español.
    Nos ofrecio mostrarnos la ciudad por un precio muy accesible nunca nos quizo cobrar un centavo de mas y nos preguntaba constantemente si estabamos satisfechos si necesitabamos algo mas.
    El tenia planeado algunos recorridos, le pedimos visiitar algunos lugares mas y accedio felizmente.
    Contraten su recorrido ustedes no se arrepentiran y pasaran un excelente tiempo conociendo los mejores lugares de la ciudad.
    Como extra sonu nos indicaba en que lugares debiamos tener cuidado de no hablar con otros etc. Le damos 10 puntos!!!

  10. Daniela & Jana says:

    Velice ochotný a milý řidič :), který se přizpůsobí časovým i finančním podmínkám. Jezdí na čas, komunikace bez problémů a má zajímavé tipy na místa, které navštívit. Za nás doporučujeme! 🙂

  11. Nous avons passé un après midi avec Sonu, on a visité la ville quil connait du bout des doigts a bord de son super tuk tuk. Il est de bon conseil, très patient et arangeant le tout dans un enthousiasme qui rend la visite très agréable et enrichissante! On notera aussi une pointe d humour incontournable! On récommende chaleureusement!

  12. Holly, Anna & Rhys says:

    Sonu looked after us for two days in Jaipur while we visited various parts of the city. He was very friendly and funny but also gave good advice about how to act in different places. I would recommend using him for tours of jaipur or for going to just one place.

  13. Miriam says:

    Haber conocido a Sonu es uno de los recuerdos más divertidos de mi viaje por India, el tipo de persona que hace subir de nuevo el carrito de la montaña rusa de emociones que es viajar por ese gran país. Consiguió sacarnos la sonrisa más rápido que nadie, e irremediablemente quisimos seguir compartiendo aventuras con él. Lástima que sólo hay un único Sonu, y está en Jaipur. Me habría encantado que nos llevara en su tuc-tuc por todas las ciudades. Es una persona especial, comparte su gran corazón y alegría por donde pasa. Y nunca nos ha olvidado! Seguimos manteniendo el contacto! Sonu for president!!! Te queremos!

  14. Robert says:

    Me and Sonu had a great time touring Jaipur together. He is a very friendly man and we had wonderful conversations throughout the day. We toured the Amber Palace, Water Palace, Hawal Mahal, and the Albert Hall Museum. He was helpful in so many ways and I can’t say enough about how friendly he was to me. He is now my lifelong friend, who I will defnintly see again in the future. I highly recommend anyone and everyone who travels to Jaipur to connect with him and tour the city of Jaipur! Thank you so much Sonu!!

  15. Juliana says:

    Sonu es muy buena persona y nos ayudo con cualquier cosa que necesitábamos. Disfrutamos mucho del tour y de su conpañia contándonos de su cultura! RECOMENDADO

  16. Tom Darlow says:

    Sonu is a real bundle of laughes , insights and kindness. We had great fun with him today. He was kind enough to pick me up from the other side of town where my bike was being serviced and dropped me back there in the evening. Excellent spoken English matched with better than east end cockney whit. A real charmer.

  17. Robert O'Kruk says:

    Had a blast adventuring with Sonu around Jaipur! Awesome dude 🙂

  18. Jane Roberts says:

    Sonu is a wonderful kind hearted and funny man, who will look after you well in Jaipur. We had so much fun with Sonu and I now consider him a life long friend. He has great knowledge of the city and makes life there so easy. As well as showing us the tourist trail and imparting invaluble tips to us he showed the real India and we met the most amazing, happy, caring people. If you are going to Jaipur I highly recommend getting in touch with Sonu he is truly one of the kindest most caring human beings I have met in a long time. Thankyou for everything. See you Soon x

  19. Hamish Cooper says:

    Sonu is a great man. I got in touch with Sonu through the recommendation of a friend who said that Sonu was the “best tuk tuk driver in all of India” I can’t say that I disagree, he has been awesome. Even before I arrived in Jaipur he was giving me advice and helping me to organise my itinerary. He sorted me with a taxi driver (Pawan) who was also a wonderfull person and who tries his best to give you a comfortable and entertaining trip!
    Sonu organised my hotel stay and even got me a discount on the accommodation. He looked after me around the clock while I was in Jaipur. He took me to the tourist hotshots and those places a ltitle off the beaten track but still other Jaipur gems. He acted as a go between for when I was dealing with the locals – he has very good English, acquired through his many many converstations over the years with his clients.
    I can’t recommend Sonu highly enough, he is great at doing a job many in India are not great at (tuk tuk driving) but more importantly, Sonu is a wonderful human being with a great heart and someone you can put all your trust in. If you are considering hiring a driver for your stay in Jaipur please choose Sonu as he will give you the ultimate stay and one you will remember forever!

  20. Tatiana Milliken says:

    Sonu gave uS a great tour of the city! We got our fortunes read, went to the amber fort and lake palace ! Couldn’t have asked for a better day ! Sonu is funny and charming – would recommend him as a tuk tuk driver to all!

  21. Michelle from Ireland says:

    We had a great time exploring Jaipur with Sonu. When we initially arrived in the city we were tired and finding it overwhelming and luckily met Sonu when we were looking for a good place for breakfast. Pick his brain for good places to eat 🙂
    He brought us to all the top spots in Jaipur and it was alot of fun especially with the tunes in the tuk tuk. Sonu is a sound out and we highly recommend him when it comes to visiting a large, intense city like Jaipur. Anything you need help with he is the guy to ask.

  22. Liana says:

    Sonu is such a kind hearted man who makes you feel very comfortable. He knows the city very well and has been driving foreigners around and taking them on tours for many years. He does not take advantage of tourists, but rather is interested in showing them around Jaipur and you will surely develop a friendship by the end of the day. Sonu is open, welcoming, and always has a smile. As a solo female traveller, I would highly recommend him. I wanted to get some textiles and clothing before leaving Jaipur and he brought me to a great shop that had everything, but no pushy sales men. He also brought me to a shop to get alterations done on my dress that I had purchased before. I went to see him a few days in a row and even just hung out in his tuktuk and he bought chai. Thank you so much Sonu, I am happy to have made a new friend in Jaipur 🙂 Best wishes from Canada

  23. Krishan says:

    Sonu came and picked me a D my partner up to take us on a day trip around Jaipur. He enriched our experience so much more with his jokes and his music system in the tuk tuk. He is a very kind man that ensured we had a good safe time, with lots of good advice. I would highly recommend Sonu if you wish to feel safe and well informed and at a reasonable price. The textile factory for block print works that he took us too was amazing, and also informative.

  24. Sophie says:

    Sonu hatte sofort gesehen, dass meine Cousine und ich ein wenig verloren in der Gegend rumstanden und uns sofort mit seiner charmanten Art und seinem coolen Tuctuc überzeugt. Er war super freundlich zu uns und hat und von Anfang an wie Freunde behandelt. Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis mit sehr guter Unterhaltubg und vielen geheim Tips. Danke Sonu für den Tollen Tag. Hoffentlich sehen wir uns nächstes Mal in Jaipur wieder.

  25. Giuliana says:

    Ho incontrato per caso Sonu, inizialmente sono stata diffidente perché credevo fosse come tutti gli autisti di tuk tuk, invece si è dimostrato gentile e disponibile. Nei 2 giorni che sono stata a Jaipur mi ha aiutato in qualsiasi modo possibile. Siccome viaggiavo da sola è sempre stato premuroso e mi ha dato consigli utili per andare in giro in sicurezza.
    Grazie Sonu

  26. Lauréline and Victor says:

    We met sonu by coincidence when we were looking for a bank. He dropped us all the afternoon with his tuktuk !! a very generous man, smiling and loving sharing time with people. We have discovered an other face of jaipur thanks to him. Real shops (interesting ones, not for tourists!). We had a great feeling with this man, we keep in touch with him and we hope to visit him soon for our next trip in india!!!!

  27. Johanna says:

    Sonu made our stay in Jaipur unique and wonderful. Without him we would keep the city in bad memory. Heaven sent him! Dear people out there: open your heart for this wonderful Person. His is already open and you will get a lot from him. Thank you, Sonu!

  28. Kangi Downing says:

    I met a wonderful man named Sonu while walking the streets of Jaipur. He stopped me and told me I had good energy and I instantly noticed his as welll. That was my first day in Jaipur and he gave me a lot of advice on where to go and what to do in Jaipur. He even offered to take me himself, but I already booked a driver for that day. The next day I didn’t have a driver and I needed somewhere to go and something to do for a couple hours before my train left. I gave Sonu a call and he was there in minutes to take me where ever I wanted to go safely. His Wngkish is good and his tips where very helpful. Surprisingly after I did everything I needed to do he invited me to hiabe lunch with his family at his family’s store. While at the store I was given a presentation on the products. For the fiirt time in Inida I wasn’t pressured to buy anything. Both Sonu and his family was great! I highly recommend Sonu services if your traveling to Jaipur. He will help make your experience less stressful and more wonderful! Thank you so much Sonu!😁

    Valeria, Mia and Martina from Chile !!

  30. Tomi says:

    We spent more than one week together.Sonu helped me to find a perfect hostel,let me met amazing people,brought me to the hospital for 5days every morning and evening,we smoked bidi next to the road just watching the crowd and traffic …talking about deep topics..sitting on the rooftop chilling..having chai..
    Bringing me to his friends and places..moreover we were born on the same day,same year,it wasn’t a coincidence..thank you everything and all the best!

  31. Marit de Looijer says:

    We were referred to Sonu by a good friend that met him in Jaipur in 2011. In our experience, Sonu is a trustworthy guy. He helped me a lot when I was sick and when I felt better he took me and my mum all around the city, giving us the freedom to set our own schedule; just tell him what you want. ‘U roept, wij draaien’, as we say in Dutch, is his motto. So, if you are looking for a good driver with a ‘helicopter’

  32. Matthias Klingler says:

    Hey, I met Sonu last year by coincidence and it was my destiny to spent 4 days with him. It was a lot of fun seeing all the beautiful places that I wont have seen without him. He had always a joke for every kind of situation and helped me digging into India society.
    I can recommend to get in contact with Sonu once you are in Jaipur. It was a great pleasure to meet such a kind, open and warm person.

  33. Jenna and Joe says:

    We were lucky enough to meet Sonu by chance on our first night in Jaipur. He gave as a ride to dinner, and we exchanged contact info for the next day. Then, we spent the next two days with him! He was always prompt, had a smile on his face, and took us to so many great places that we never would have found by ourselves. He’s just such a kind and genuine soul, and he always had a bad joke that made us laugh. Our time in Jaipur was so enriched by his knowledge of his city and his willingness to share it with us. He truly was one of the highlights of our three-week trip to India.

  34. Dominik says:

    Sonu thx for everything!
    I’m so happy that Michael and I met you, u were the first person we talked to, when we landed in jaipur. We spent 3 awesome days together, with one of the most honest and loveliest driver I met in India during my 5 months stay. Sonu showed us a nice tattoo artist and also a good place to stay, and had some nice talks at a rooftop bar! I’m really looking forward to meet you again, take care and much love from Austria!!!

  35. Kelly & Mark says:

    Sonu a very genuine and honest individual, which isn’t always the easiest to come by in India. He went way out of his way to help us search for very specific textiles and took us to shop after shop with patience and was still cracking jokes the whole way. He is one of those people who radiates joy and it his presence only brightens the experience that India has to offer. Thank you for all your help Sonu!

  36. Kelly and Kimberly says:

    We had a very nice day with Sonu. He took us to the Amber fort and on the way showed us some other beautiful places. He is very friendly and realy listend to what we wanted to do and see. He didn’t push us to do anything we didn’t want to and he makes you feel safe. If you tour with Sonu, you are in good hands.

  37. Ben says:

    Kumar helped me out when I was lost in Jaipur. I was looking for a place to buy mild groceries when my gf suffered from a stomach ache. I met Kumar in the street and he offered to take me to the place for free. He then even helped me to pick groceries and told me funny stories on the way back to the hostel. If you need a guide who knows the city, I can definitely recommend him!

  38. Sarah Sunday says:

    My dad and I met Sonu as we got off a (long) bus ride from Agra and were immediately met with a smile and warm welcome. The next day he took us around the wonderful Pink City for the (too short) day! He showed us some really lovely spots and made it even lovelier with his jokes and stories. Jaipur would have not been the same without him. Thank you Sonu! We hope to return to Jaipur again and have you show us more.

  39. Anne says:

    Hi Sonu,
    I’m sorry we missed you for a tour in our final days in Jaipur. I love all the comments people wrote about you and wish you lots of success.

  40. Gina Mills says:

    Sonu took my friend and I out for the day in Jaipur and I must say that we had just the best day ever! We crammed so much into that day including an elephant safari …Sonu took lots of amazing photo’s for us and video, a very funny day, we laughed so much, the tuk tuk was hilarious with the music playing loud we toured the amazing streets of Jaipur an overload on all of the senses! Just fantastic, only made so though by Sonu … If you want an amazing day out with plenty of fun then book Sonu, he is full of energy, great company, hard working and honest, I wish him all the very best for the future …Namaste!

  41. Richard says:

    We had the perfect day in Jaipur with Sonu.. He is the best, funniest, most knowledgeable, courteous and interesting tour guide we could have wished for. Our one day in Jaipur was made perfect by our new friend and we will look forward to coming back to this beautiful city and meeting him again.

  42. Sylvie Baumann says:

    Dear Sonu, my friend!
    Last year you were so kind and helpful in helping me to organize my holiday in Rajasthan: you listened to what I wanted to have or see, you recommended and organized everything to my full satisfaction. Jaipur is a crazy world… it’s so important to have someone to trust – and this is you! Thank you for everything!
    You are the best tour organizer in Jaipur and Rajasthan someone could wish for! All the best for your future! Take care, my friend!

  43. Ben Coulton says:

    Sonu is a breath of fresh air in an amazing but overwhelming city. Jaipur and Rajasthan in general can be a crazy place if you don’t know where you’re going. Tour guides abound in the city but to find one as honest, courteous and committed as Sonu you will simply not find. Believe me, I lived 8 months in Jaipur. Sonu is highly punctual, kind and a solid English speaker. If you are traveling to Jaipur, I highly recommend him as your personal tour guide.

  44. jasmin G :-)! says:

    Sonu, my friend!
    You are one of the generous and honest person I ever met!
    I wish you will meet more people who appreciate your open heart and your true mind !
    Take care of yourself and others :-)!
    I will be back by next year .

  45. Nick Brown says:

    Sonu made my time in Jaipur very special. Apart from being my guide, he was someone that I enjoyed getting to know on a personal level, and he became one of my favorite people that I met during my two weeks in India. Thank you, Sonu!

  46. Robert Weller says:

    Sonu. I stayed 4 years in India and during my time in Jaipur Sonu was always the best guide there was. Sonu one of my two brother`s in Jaipur !

  47. Maura Devi Arraj says:

    Sonu is a gem of a person, great tour guide, and autorickshaw walla… !
    He is kind, energetic, friendly, and will give you a true experience of Jaipur. He went out of his way to bring me to a great thali restaurant!
    In a city that is so overrun with scams and scam artists- be it fake jewelry shops or tour guides, it is nice to know you can surpass the frustrations of that and tour with someone honest and knowledgeable.
    Go with Sonu for a great time in Jaipur!!!

  48. Lisa McLellan says:

    Sonu found me when I was standing there lost! He generously and with so much kindness helped me to find my way and then offered me Chai! We spent several days with Sonu as our guide and witnessed many untouristic sites and sounds. The things my eyes saw! We met his family and had a very special evening. Sonu is very honest and gives his best to you every time. Thank you Sonu. Namaste.

  49. koscianski vanessa says:

    Hey, we met Sonu few years ago me and my dad when we were in Jaipur. He took us around the city, in non-touristic place, hidden temple, restaurants and else. Every day was unique and it’s because of him that Jaipur will sray in my mind for ever.
    Sonu is now a friend, someone you can trust, I gave you my word !

  50. Daniel says:

    This is a fantastic place in India. I hired Sonu as my personal guide. He was very courteous and caring. Respected every request I asked and tried to fulfill it. I really enjoyed his company and professionalism. Thanks Sonu. See you soon.
