The A&K staff on the ground were tremendous. Our driver, Bhupinder Singh, was exceptional. He was a very competent driver, which in India is no mean feat! We always felt safe when being driven by him. He was unfailingly courteous and his conversation as always interesting and very informative. He rates a AAA from us!
