An impersonal experience from the outset. We very much felt on a treadmill as we went around the sites. He didn't engage us at all. Jaimini's level of English was average and he would often repeat facts multiple times as if he had run out of things to say / was tired of us. Our poor experience culminated on day 3 in a tour around the 4 crafts of Jaipur which was just him taking us his mates shops for us to buy things - we cut this short after the 2nd store. Very disappointing and we cannot recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Albert hall musium was closed at 10:00 AM on the day due to strike. So we had to do in the morning. Kids where not allowing me to explain properly even then I am sorry. On day 2 I was interested to take them to other fort but kids where tired. Any way I am sorry.

What a brilliant tour, our guide Jaimini was brilliant. During the first visit it felt as though we were being guided by a celebrity as all the other guides were making the effort to greet Jaimini, who has been guiding for 49 years and has trained many of the other guides. His knowledge was outstanding. All places visited were fascinating and it was a full on day. Thoroughly recommended and we hope you too are guided by Mr 'The Don'
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sky is the limit, I tried my best. With thanks and regards.

Jaimini was a most excellent guide. His in depth knowledge was astonishing, especially of the workings of the observatory. He was also more than happy to adapt the programme to our needs. Jaimini was clearly held in the highest regard by his fellow guides, all of whom he appeared to have trained and who bowed low to him whenever we encountered them. We considered ourselves truly fortunate to have secured his services and would recommend him without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sky is the limit. I tried my best efforts. Thanks & Regards.
We had a good trip with Jaimini. He replied us very fast and helped us to sort things out before we arrived in India. During our tour lots of his students come up and greet him, so he must be well known by many local tour guides there. Thank you Jaimini for the lovely trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks.
Jaimini is an excellent guide, extremely knowledgeable and informative and was able to provide context for what I was viewing. I really recommend getting a guide (like Jaimini) to see the forts that understands and can communicate the intricate history of what you are visiting. five stars!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had done my best but sky is the limit.Thanks.
