Kalka Shimla Taxi Services by Him Tourers Taxi Agency

I was totally amazed to see this level of professionalism in a small town taxi operating. I am a full-time businessman from Mumbai. I took a cab on 22nd of December from Kalka to travel to shimla. I was in hurry as it was a rainy day and I was quite sure to get snowfall and chances to get stuck in snowfall at Shimla. Even I had travelled to Shimla from Kalka by taxi before. Normally I used to go Kalka by Shatabdi Express and take a taxi to shimla from outside. They charged me sometimes 1900 and sometimes 2000 rupees. Lately, I hired a local taxi operator that I came to know about by a local friend. They charged me just 1650 rupees for a fare and that is even including midway toll taxes. Cab was a nice sedan AC cab I guess Toyota, Driver was a fairly aged old man and was very friendly, although he was talking tom but amazing and adventures. They respected me like a royal passenger and even he informed me about everything that I wanted to know about places, ways and routes etc. We had a great journey altogether. I highly appreciate the agency at this success and I highly recommend the services offered by Him Tourers in Kalka city.

Kalka shimla taxi services scams people travelling to shimla from kalka

Update by user Jan 20, 2015

This review has not been for Him Tourers instead it has been written for Kalka Shimla Taxi Service providers. Meanwhile the issue is resolved as they have given us a refund of 300 rupees.

I endorse the work done by Him Tourers for whom I have written another review.

Thanks!

I took a cab from Kalka Shimla Taxi stand on december 22nd for an office work in Shimla. I was in hurry and was not able to take bus or train as both of them take more than 4 hours to reach Shimla from Kalka. So I took a cab from Kalka Shimla Taxi stand outside Kalka Railway station. First they told me that toll will be included and I would be provided with a Toyota Etios AC taxi but they gave me Indigo CS. I was told to have a fare (pickup and return) at a bargained price of 1650 including toll taxes as discussed with the owners at phone. Later, When the cab picked me and we reached a toll barrier. Driver asked me to pay additional 30 rupees. Further, When we reached Shimla, It was slightly snowing and driver refused to drive the car upto Sanjauli. Somehow I paid extra money and even after that driver was afraid to drive in snow as Sanjauli is prone to intense snow and skidding sometimes. Totally I have been totally disappointed with the service and It was totally a nightmare that day to return back to Kalka peacefully in that cab. I would not recommend anyone to take a taxi from Kalka for travelling to Shimla. Go by bus rather, otherwise only hire someone if you really know them very well and discuss everything in personal first, including toll tax, total cost, travelling area and extra charges etc.
