Key Phrases

A English - Hindi Lexicon

Our drivers are familiar with the roads leading into towns, villages and the famous attractions of North India. At your disposal during your entire stay, they will provide you with quality service. You can count on them to take you from one place to another at any time of your stay. They are available at your beck and call for 8 hours a day, between 7 am and 10 pm.

Used to travelling with foreign customers, they know their specific needs and preferences. They also remain in constant contact with our Delhi office to enable us to assist you anytime, anywhere.

Some drivers do not have a very good knowledge of English, so we offer below a small, simple glossary to help you improve your communication with them. You will also find, with your travel documents, maps to use to make the driver understand what you want.

Shanti strongly condemns the commissions charged by shops and hotels, and to avoid them, we pay your driver a bonus at the end of your stay if he has respected your freedom during all your tours and activities. Do not hesitate to consult our experts to learn more about it.
