Gurbaksh organized a number of drivers, trains, and accommodation. He was amazing! Can not recommend him enough. If you have any questions he is more than happy to help. He always made sure we were updated with our train times and make sure we got to the station on time. The first driver we had was one of the best experiences in India, he was super friendly and helpful.
