Hello A M,
Taking a taxi for all 7 days would not be advisable, as in Gangtok, you can not travel in a large vehicle. You would be better off taking a taxi from NJP to Gangtok, and hire another taxi for within Gangtok.
NJP to Gangtok may cost you around 2k for a Tavera.
Gangtok is wonderful place. Do chk if u can visit Yumthang, as it should be beautiful in this season.
Enjoy you vacation.

Hi,

In gangtok u r not allowed to take outside taxi. There is a taxi stand where NJP drivers will drop u and from there again u have to take gangtok taxis for hotel. Lots of road is one way and only gangtok taxis u have to take inside. Fare is around 15oo to 2K. You will see if its Gangtok taxi it will charge less as anyway driver has to go home.

Darjeeling is in WB and Gangtok is in Sikkim hence taxi r different for diff routes. If u plan to visit Darjeeling first then plan to visit 1 day in Pelling and then proceed to gangtok. Pelling is a nice and beautiful place where u can get chance to see the golden peak of Kanchenjunga early morning and that too from very close. Plenty of taxis r available for different routes and each purpose. local sight seeing only small vehicles r allowed in Gangtok, far off place or drop to another destination bigger vehicles r available easily. do not hesitate to bargain.
U can also try www.darjeelingtaxis.com who can plan ur requirement and they arrange according to your needs for each day
