Full description
Udaipur, once called the most romantic spot in all of India, is the city of Lakes. This tour covers the most important sites of the city, and ends with a serene sunset at Lake Pichola. Several locations were made famous in the the James Bond movie, Octopussy, filmed here in 1982.  Start your tour at Sajjangarh or the Monsoon Palace, an old dilapidated hunting lodge, perched atop a hillside. It offers fantastic views of the countryside, the Aravalli hills, and Fatehsagar Lake, the next stop on this tour. Step into the Maharaja’s lifestyle at Udaipur City Palace (Rajasthan’s largest palace). Some of these buildings date back 400 years. City Palace Museum has opulently decorated rooms, filled with artifacts and miniatures. Spend approximately two hours here, before heading to the Jagdish temple. Built in 1651, this serene marble temple with stone carvings is dedicated to an avatar of Lord Vishnu. Stop for lunch at a restaurant of your choice, or ask your guide for recommendations (lunch at own expense). Take a relaxing stroll around the lotus pools and fountains at Saheliyon ki Bari. As the day comes to an end, watch the sunset from Lake Pichola. The evening light makes for perfect photo opportunities. You can also choose an optional boat ride for a pleasant end to your full day tour. At the end of the activity, your driver will drop you back to either your hotel, the airport, or railway station in Udaipur.

Our guide Mr Nitin was fantastic! Always friendly and helpful, explain all the details! The restaurant we went to (was indicated by the same) was wonderful, we made sure you had lunch with us and suggested wonderful dishes that we had not yet tasted! After we took a walk around the lake (unfortunately our car had a puncture) Without stress we walked around talking about everything and normal things about a walk! (mentioning that he said we were super nice, because if they were others they were already upset because of the puncture in the car) Then we went to a wonderful store of silks and cashmere (at our request) in a calm and serene place in a house out of the big mess ! Yes, I recommend 5 stars

Our trip was excellent and well organized. Our guide ,Nitin, was knowledgeable and explained well about the history and monuments. He was patient in both explaining the history and taking the photos for memory. We really enjoyed sightseeing and would recommend this tour.
