Amritsar to Dharamshala Destination Reviews

So the price for the 4.5 hour drive was good. It is more than an Uber but also I'm happy with. First I got all 4 phonecalls from the driver and also a friend of the driver. They wanted to know where they could pick me up. They only speak Hindi and Punjabi and no English so this was frustrating. The driver and his friend made it to the hotel and then they where super in a hurry although they where 35minutes earlier than the time we agreed. After navigating in town his friend went out the car and it was just me and the driver. He drove quite okay (Indian style) until the mountain. He went like a maniac and I had to tell him repeatedly to drive slow because it scared the hell out of me. If he would be learned that he drives normal and no trespassing at corners or small part it would be amazing!
