... for a few days in October or November....

Hi friends,

finally we are planning again. This time for our India trip No 5 in Oct/Nov.

We are actually planning to start in Mumbai and (after 4 weeks and many trains (...) via Nashik, Aurangabad, Indore, Ujaiin, Bhopal, Jabalpur (...) and Varanasi) end in Delhi. Amongst others Dalautabad and Lonar Crater are on the wish list.

We are thinking of hiring a car + driver in Aurangabad for some days because we don't want to loose too much time with public transport and taxis (especially) by going to lonar. Just have 4 weeks and way too much to see.

Any recommendations for a local tour operator or driver? Or any other suggestions?

Greetings from germany from
Petra aka Semira

... No need to warn us that many people were disappointed by lonar - we are really fond of such geological interesting places :-)

You may also inquire at the front desk of Oberoi hotel. Near Osmanpura Circle, Opp Bharat Petroleum Pump, Station Road, Aurangabad, Maharashtra 431005. Google gives this Phone: +91-240 232 3841.

p.s. we stayed at this hotel (and were very happy with the price/value) but during our stay the front desk guy arranged a car for another set of tourists.

Any cab or tour companies take credit cards?

Hi,
Does anyone know of any local taxi or tour companies that would take a credit card for our trip from Aurangabad to Ajanta? Our hotels are paid for but not hopeful about getting much cash for trips etc. Don't suppose the ASI accepts cards for the entry fees do they? Thanks

Swagatam is often recommended here.

The ASI places I visited last week didn't seem to have any card swapping machines. So I guess cash would be the only option there.

snotty means swiping instead of swapping.

There was a news report of Taj Mahal and Humayun's Tomb going for the card swiping machine. For others I think it would take more time.

Thanks for the info, hopefully we will be able to scrape up the cash for the entrance fees!
