Delhi to Jaipur by Taxi in March 2017

Hi everyone!
Can anyone please recommend reliable and safe taxi firm/driver from Delhi to Jaipur? How long would the journey be and how much should we expect to pay?

Has anyone used or can recommend hippocabs or jaipurdelhitaxis which we saw on the internet?

I've looked at train times but they're not very suitable for when we arrive from Dharamsala so looking at taxi options.

Many thanks!

Delhi 30 days or more.  (11 Answers)

Hi guys, I'm in the very early stages of planning for a month or so I would like to spend in India. For now I've done the basic research on Delhi, Agra and Varanasi which is what many people are able to do in around 4-5 days. I'd like to take my time on this trip so I'll probably spend 3-5 days at each of these places which leaves me with plenty of time to spare. I would like to know if anyone can recommend any other places nearby or in between that I might want to include.

Right now I'm only interested in this part of India, I might go as far as Kolkata but right now I can't be sure.

I'm still a little confused about the train situation, if I really need to book in advance or if I can get tickets on the ground once I'm there on the day, or a few days before I travel. Having to book in advance makes it difficult for me since I prefer not to have a set number of days at any one place in case I decide to spend more time somewhere else.

Connection between Delhi T3 and T1D  (2 Answers)

Hi, I have a question regarding connections between T3 and T1D. Can anyone please give me an idea of how to go from T3 arrivals to T1D departure. I will be arriving in T3 at night (around 11.30 PM) and have a connecting flight from T1D (around 5 AM). I heard that there is a connecting shuttle service between the two terminals. Can someone please advise where to get it from, and whether the journey can be done from outside the airport premises using a private taxi. Never thought I will be asking a question on this forum regarding my home country, but seems like things have changed a lot since the last time I travelled through Delhi domestic airport! :)

fast train from Jaipur/ timing question about how much one can see in ten days  (10 Answers)

I found a fast train in the morning that leaves from Delhi at 6: 35 a.m. and arrives in Jaipur at 10:30 a.m. Is there one that leaves around 6:00 in the evening that takes about the same time to return to Delhi? I'm a little confused because I thought I saw an express train, but either it only leaves in the morning or the evening one has been discontinued.


Also, though I would like to visit the Amber fort, it appears it is not in Jaipur, but out a ways and would be a day trip in itself. I am particularly interested in the City Palace and especially the Chandra Mahal. In your opinion, is it still worth going to Jaipur without seeing the Amber Fort, bearing in mind that I will see most things in Delhi, Haridwar, and Agra?

OR, with my 10-day actual visiting time, do I forget Jaipur altogether as there would be enough to see in Delhi, Agra and Haridwar? Is there a beautifully decorated palace in Delhi like Chandra Mahal I can see instead?

Purchase train ticket on internet or buy once I arrive in Delhi for day trip to Haridwar?  (4 Answers)

I hesitate about purchasing tickets internationally online, and have heard that there can be problems and confusion with train ticket purchases in India. Am I better to wait until I get to India and then purchase, or will seats be taken? This would be for a day-trip to Hardiwar and back during the week.

Varanasi or Haridwar? for a day trip from Delhi?  (4 Answers)

I have heard the river is cleaner and the area is more beautiful in Haridwar. Since it is just a day trip, it is also that I can get to either as quick as I can. Which is better just for traveling to?

I have never been to India so either would be quite something for me.

clothing and foot gear  (11 Answers)


I will be in Delhi 9/22-10/2. I see it's hot, but the online weather prediction tables I've looked at show immense rain in September, but little in October. I'll be traveling on the cusp, so to speak. Any suggestions of what to wear? Light clothing of course, and I want to cover myself as I will be walking about most of the day. I will hydrate myself intermittently.

This will be vacation for me so casual is fine. I will bring a small umbrella. What about a rain poncho? What about just getting wet? I come from Southern California and have hear of "rain", and even seen it in films! :-) In all seriousness, in Los Angeles, 5 minutes after it rains, the sun appears and dries it out and you would never know it had rained. I suspect India has the more lingering kind. I've never been to a really humid climate.

What about foot wear? I want to bring comfortable walking shoes, but are they going to be too hot, and are they just not suitable for the rain? I'm not a big sandal fan since they are not normally reinforced and good for long distance walking.

I plan not to die walking about most of the day. I hope that will be the case, if I plan well.

Day trip from Delhi to Jaipur  (15 Answers)

Hello everyone,

Still deciding on day trips. Everyone approves of Udaipur, but suggests I stay several days. That is something I have to think about. I am sure it is worth it, but I would like to spend less time traveling between places and switching sleeping accommodations. I understand, as well that there is no night train from Udaipur to Delhi.

With that in mind, what do you all think of A day trip to Jaipur? Can I do that in a day? It is not as far. Are their night trains back and forth for Jaipur?

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks again.

Visit Udaipur via overnight train on a short trip to Delhi?  (12 Answers)

I will have 9 maybe 9 and 1/2 sightseeing days in delhi.

I am staying at a cheap hostel.

There is probably enough to do in Delhi with regular side trips such as Agra, I imagine.

However, I have heard of people making a day trip to Udaipur by taking an overnight sleeper train.

I have never been to India so on the one hand, everything in Delhi will be special to me. On the other hand, I have heard Udaipur is manificent.

Is it too much to do to visit Udaipur on such a short trip? What does a sleeper cost aproximately?

Layover in Delhi  (6 Answers)

Hello folks!

I'm going to Singapore in March. Looking at the flight possibilities I was thinking about one with a 13hour layover in Delhi (DEL Airport).

The flight would arrive at 10AM and leave at 11PM, on a Saturday (March the 19th)

I was hoping this would leave me enough time for a quick look at the Taj Mahal but it doesn't seem to be possible. Therefore I'd like to know if I'd have enough time to get into the city and have a look at some touristic spots.

Also, I'm French so I'd need to get a transit visa and go through the customs, which can be time consuming.

Looking forward to having your thoughts, Romain

Girl Guides in Northern India  (5 Answers)

Hello all,

Later this year I am planning a trip to Northern India, taking in Delhi, Agra and Varanasi as well as visiting a charitable project in Dharamsala. Here in the UK I run a Brownie unit, the equivalent of an Indian Bulbul unit, for girls aged 7-9. I would love to be able to get in touch with a Bulbul unit in one of these areas, so that my girls can write letters to their Indian counterparts, and hopefully I can also visit the unit during my travels.

So does anyone have any contacts in the Girl Guides or Girl Scouts in Northern India? I've tried going through the 'Bharat Scouts & Guides' website to no avail. Many thanks to anyone who can help.
