Janu Khan is a kind hearted, and extremely fun tour guide, based in Jaipur, India. He deserves an international, best guide award, as he is responsible for turning my Indian experience from magnificent to magical. He was so fantastic, reasonably priced, and genuine that I feel compelled by the Universe to write this so that you too might get the gift of traveling with such a great guide.
During my 2011 travels to India, I had the pleasure of experiencing Jaipur with Janu’s local and skilled guidance. He knew exactly how to customize our trip with the perfect balance between historical sightseeing, local artists, wildlife exposure, and local secrets.For example, after an amazing trip to the Amber Fort, he pulled over to show us a snake charmer walking down the street, followed by a round of cold beers while looking over the city atop ancient ruins. He didn’t even let us pay for the beers! Even when we made the mistake planning to visit the Taj Mahal on a Friday, the only day it’s closed, Janu drove (free of charge) at midnight to the train station, refunded our tickets and arranged a driver to take us the following day. He even took me to see his own personal Guru! By the end of our 5 days we all had become such great friends we were saddened to part ways.
At the time, hiring Janu was based on the luck of meeting him at the train station, however, now he has a website, 5 stars on TripAdvisor, and a perfect score on Google user ratings and by this I am not surprised. I am so proud of my friend and think of him often and the amazing side of India we were blessed to experience because of him. For you as my readers, I cannot say enough nice things and give a higher recommendation for this guide.
