Full description
Discover the enchanting city of Jaipur on a private day-trip from New Delhi. See the highlights of Jaipur in a single day. Visit the Amer Fort, City Palace, and Hawa Mahal with an expert local guide. Choose between transfer via air-conditioned car or train. Maximize your day by getting an early start. Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your accommodations. If you have chosen to be transferred to Jaipur by car, your driver will deliver you to Jaipur where you will meet your guide. If you have chosen to ride the train to Jaipur, you’ll be driven to the train station where your driver will assist you in boarding the train. Upon arrival in Jaipur, you’ll meet your guide and enjoy a full day of sightseeing in a private car. Visit the honeycomb structure of the Hawa Mahal, or the Palace of Winds. The building was designed to allow royal ladies to watch the city without being observed by others. Next, drive to Amer Fort and observe its intricate Indo-Muslim architecture. See its gorgeous halls and beautiful entrance gates. Spend approximately 2 hours here, allowing for both a guided tour and time free time to explore. Continue to the Jal Mahal or Water Palace. Located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake, this viewing spot provides excellent birdwatching opportunities (when in season). Explore the Jantar Mantar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which houses unique architectural and astronomical instruments. End your tour with a visit to the home of the royal family, the City Palace. Explore the palace’s courtyards, galleries, and museums before heading back to Delhi.

December 2019 - Janu and his driver were amazing! Everything was organized nicely for us. A great train ride down and back and made sure we were safe and taken care of. The sights we saw were pretty good, although I didn't feel like we needed much time at the fruit and veggie market, but that was OK and they were fairly flexible. I would definitely book Janu again as it was a great and safe experience! Recommended!

We elected to travel to Jaipur from our hotel in New Delhi by train, A driver picked us up from our hotel and drove us to New Delhi rail station. The train was a fairly modern air conditioned train called the Ajmer Satabdi Express and our seats were in the comfortable Executive Chair Class carriage. On arrival at Jaipur, we were met by Janu, the owner of the tour company who immediately made us feel very welcome. We then met our tour guide Kumar who was very friendly and knowledgeable. Janu stayed with us as our driver. The tour took us to Jantar Mantar, at site of very interesting large stone and marble astronomy instruments, the City Palace, the Amber Fort, The Water Palace as well as other fascinating places in Jaipur. During the drive between sites, Janu would give us interesting stories about old and modern Jaipur. A wonderful and fascinating tour which we immensely enjoyed.

Excellent tour! Both the driver as the guide were outstanding, I would always do this tour with them the next time! Picking and dropping from the hotel worked well. The guide proved deep knowledge about the historical facts of the monuments and the city itself.
