Had a great experience with Richi! He picked me from the train station and showed me all Jaipur in his moped for over two days. Tell him to show you the best Lassi place in town!
It was really an amazing experience!

Richi Gurjar of Geeta T+T is the number 1 go-to man for info and tours around Jaipur and further. From walking tours of the pink city and car tours further away to train tickets all over India, Richi does it all. We combined trips to Ranthambore, Bangarh, Taj- Mahal and Kebladeo bird sanctuary, over a couple of days and took a walking tour with explanatory commentary of the Amber Palace. All well executed and at a comfortable pace.
So many “guides” will direct you to certain expensive retail outlets to pick up commission. Richi will not steal your holiday in this way, if you would like to see Jaipur’s famous block printing or fabric shops, Richi will gladly recommend genuine ones for you.
If your trip to India, especially Jaipur, is longer than the usual, find Richi, he is the best friend you could wish for in a hectic city in a hectic country!

Richi of Geeta Tours and Travel is the perfect man to accompany you on your tour in the Jaipur area. He took us to see The Amber Fort, Richi has good knowledge of the history of the building, and enjoys bringing the visit to life, making sure no important sights are missed. From the Amber Fort we visited the Haunted Fort a few kilometers from Jaipur. Again, Richi told us the legends about the fort, and showed us the best photo spots, in an unhurried relaxed day out.
Enjoy Jaipur with Richi, you will be pleased you did.

Richi is a very helpful and knowledgeable tour guide.
He arranged a wonderful day for us at Ramthanbore Tiger reserve. The driver took us safely there and back over very difficult roads.
Our tour in the park was wonderful as a magnificent tiger came out of the bush to show itself to us.
Richi also went out of his way back in Jaipur, to make sure all our needs were met.
I would highly recommend Richi as your tour guide in India.
