What a fantastic time Rusi provided us, with his exceptional knowledge and safe driving throughout our trip to Mysore & back.
I have lived and grown up in Bangalore for most of my childhood & teenage years. I now live in the UK and come back home on vacation from time to time. Every time I come back the traffic seems to be worse than the last time and so I require a taxi service as I cannot get to grips with driving in India anymore. You can be sure that I will ask Rusi for his or his driver’s assistance.
Driving in India is extremely difficult and having someone who is careful and thoughtful is what you really want. Especially, if you are doing long trips with continuous driving for long lengths.
Our journey started in Bangalore with a smiling and calm face greeting us at our front door. The drive through Bangalore, to get us to the outskirts, was as eventful as always. The bustling and horn warnings of traffic is a constant reminder of how alive the city really is. Once, out of the city we were asked if we would like to stop for a spot to eat and a clean restroom to which we both agreed would be a good idea. Breakfast was delicious and the restroom was actually very clean. We then went onto Mysore and looked for where we were booked to stay for 3 nights. Rusi, found the place with no problem and dropped us off. We said that we would meet him in the evening and that he would then take us around the city which is what he did every day showing us the various sites in and around Mysore.
Rusi, is an extremely patient and very easy going person. Anytime we requested something that would normally be off the beaten track he was always willing to be accommodating and welcoming. With his assistance we were able to do Chamundhi Hills, the Palace, the Sandal Wood factory, the Silk factory, Brindavin Gardens, lots of lovely places to shop and eat. On the way back to Bangalore we decided that it might be an idea to go via the Shivasamudran Falls which was a little bit out of the way but he took us there and we had an absolute fabulous trip.
Thank you very much and I would recommend Rusi all the time.

South India is captivating in its own way, from the refreshing backwaters to the soothing hill stations or the holy shrines; the states here are filled with unique experiences that are sure to lure the visitors.
Having just a long weekend we did manage to have a wonderful refreshing, relaxing and a fun trip down south of India,thanks to rusi and dinu (RUSDIN). A perfectly planned and arranged trip to bangalore,mysore,ooty made this diwali a special one. Everything in southern india has a different flavour. From the language,primarily tamil to the vegetarian cuisine-thalis,dosa’s to the terrain. Rusi has possibly made us taste the best food and has made sure that we experience the best. Travelling with rusi was fun as he is such a jovial and a happy go lucky person. Talking about a road trip who else could be a better person to take us around Mr rusi himself. With an experience of 30 years and more he has managed to satisfy his customers in every possible way. A big thanks and cheers to RUSDIN for making our trip a comfortable one.

We had a trip of a life time recently visiting South India for 15 days. This trip was organized with the help of Rusi and Dinu Billimoria of Prince Carriers.
The trip originated in Bangalore and we visited Mysore/Ooty/Kodaikanal/Thekkady/Alleppy and Kovalam.
Not having travelled by Road in India we were very apprehensive about a long journey. But within one hour of meeting Rusi we knew we were in good hands and enjoyed our travels through beautiful landscapes of Southern India. From the time I shared my plans for places to visit till the end of our trip in Trivandrum we had excellent and attentive service from Rusi and his wife Dinu.
We found Rusi very reliable and resourceful. With all the hectic traffic and unruly drivers on the road Rusi has the ability to stay calm and give his passengers a “smooth hassle free ride”. Every morning he would arrive promptly at the hotel with his car washed and ready for another leg of the journey on the dusty roads. We had to change our itinerary due to unexpected strike in Kerala state. Rusi spent almost 3 hrs with us helping to cancel and make alternative hotel reservations etc.
He seems to know all the streets and alleys in every town we visited including all the CLEAN restrooms on the road!!!
The other advantage travelling with him was his willingness to accommodate the last minute needs or stops on the road and we never felt “rushed” going from one place to another.We learnt a lot from his experience of 30 years of driving in S. India and by the end of our journey decided that we should go back and see some more of the beautiful country with his guidance and expertise in couple of years!!!
After our trip to South India we also traveled by road in Rajasthan with another Taxi service.
That trip made us all the more appreciative of the services of Prince Carriers .
We HIGHLY recommend Prince Carriers and wish Rusi & Dinu good health so that others may continue to enjoy similar experience.

As a token of appreciation, one of our esteemed client shared their thoughts with the help of a blog: http://kingoftheindianroads.wordpress.com/
I have just returned from a great trip around south India. This nine day adventure included the states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
One of the advantages of car travel is being able to break the journey wherever you like to take photos, have snacks and stretch your legs. Car travel also enables you to visit out of the way temples and points of interest.
This trip included visits to sacred sites, palaces, backwaters of Kerala, shopping and Ayurvedic treatments.

Prince Carriers truly provide a princely service to their customers. It is brilliantly managed by Rusi and Dinu Billimoria with the backup of an exceptionally caring and attentive staff. We had a spectacular trip by road to South India that began at Bangalore and took us to Mysore, Bandipur (our encounter with baby elephant Nusri at the elephant camp was pure magic), Ooty, Mettapalyam, Kodaikanal, Thekkady, Kovalam, Kanyakumari, Madurai, Trichy and Pondicherry and Puttaparthy. A traveller however enthusiastic does not enjoy an unbroken travelling ecstasy. He has periods of tiredness, periods when he questions the object of all these exertions and asks himself whether or not he is really enjoying his trip. We didn’t feel this way at all with Prince Carriers. We felt at home. We felt safe and sound and comfortable and were privileged to be excellently guided throughout the trip. We were not rushed at any time and when it all ended after three weeks on the road we were left delightfully fresh and relaxed in every way. We didn’t meet just a smart tour operator, we met true friends when we met Prince Carriers. We learned a lot by observing different faces of nature and people when we travelled with Prince Carriers. We learned more than we could ever have done by reading books. At the end of the tour, we realized the ultimate truth – we may read any quantity of books and remain as ignorant as ever unless we observe and sharpen our observing faculties. It was indeed a memorable and successful trip with them. No matter how far we travel, pleasant memories subsequently follow and remembrance remains like a lingering perfume. We hope we can travel with them once more and wish them the best of luck. Freny and Keki Engineer London Friday, 19 October 2012.
I have been travelling with Prince Travels for many years, and have been blessed to have driven both with Rusi and all their wonderful safe drivers. I had a memorable trip round Rajasthan a few years ago and have had countless trips back and forth to Puttaparthi as well as journeys through South India. I cannot find enough superlatives to describe the care and warmth Rusi and Dinu have showered on me over the miles and years, but when I land at Bangalore and see those smiling faces I feel I have come home.
Rusi and his drivers have driven our family throughout southern india. With Dinu’s organisational skill Prince Carriers is the best. Rusi makes us feel safe in the car and is always happy to help with last minute changes to the itinerary. The icing on the cake is being able to talk with Rusi about the real India that only locals know. I recommend Rusi for a hire car service if you want experience hassle free travel in India.
Rusi, How I wish we were in India on another road trip with you. The itinerary you posted sounds fabulous. Last August my husband and two friends and I had yet another incredible road trip with you (of course with the help of Dinu, as well). We are still talking about it and are planning our next trip in July or August of next year. You and Dinu are part of our India experience and we look forward to it every year. You are an amazing driver, friend and tour guide!! We feel so confident that we are in good hands when we travel with “the King of the Road.” Hope to see you next year for another India Adventure!!
My friends and I have used Rusi’s car services for many trips to India. Most of our travels have been in Southern India where Rusi drives us to sacred places and holy sites. Rusi is very knowledgeable about where to go and where to stay. I always feel very taken care of because he provides such an excellent professional service. The roads can be very hectic – to say the least – but Rusi drives very calmly and smoothly! There is a wonderful book that a couple from England wrote about their road trip with Rusi, you can get it on Amazon and it is titled “Travels with Rusi in Southern India” I recommend getting it so you can read about their wonderful experiences with Rusi as their driver. My husband feels better when he knows that I and my friends have Rusi for our driver each time we go, because he knows that I will be greatly taken care of! We go again in June! Yea!
