Receive a morning pickup from your Jaipur hotel aboard a private chauffeured vehicle and transfer to Jaipur’s Amber Fort. Situated 6.8 miles (11 kilometers) north of the city in the Aravali Hills, the fort is considered one of the city’s top architectural masterpieces.

Wander through this elaborate structure with a guide, stopping to admire its mirrored alcoves, water-cooled swings, and multi-hued mosaic designs. Leave the fort and continue to Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of the Winds, which was built in 1799. Take a look at this pink sandstone structure, making sure to note its intricate honeycombed windows and semi-octagonal design.

Continue your Jaipur excursion at the City Palace. Combining a unique mixture of Mughal and Rajasthani architecture styles, the palace is known for its seven gates and fortified walls designed to protect the palace from enemy armies. Leave the Palace and proceed to the Solar Observatory, which houses a unique collection of vintage astronomical instruments.

Finish your trip by heading to the Govind Devji a temple that’s located in between the Chandra Mahal and Badal Mahal in the City Palace complex. Depending on when you visit, you might even get to witness the “Bhogs” or “Aartis” and “Prasad” performed at the site multiple times per day. At the end of your trip you’ll be transferred back to your Jaipur hotel.

the tour was just amazing. the guide and driver super attentive, well informed of the city and sites' history, artistic features and characteristics of the lives of Jaipur people throughout the centuries, including the present, as well as pertaining to weather, environment, economics and of course, food and shopping.we became fast friends and I hope to see him again, should Jaipur come up again in my travels. He was a real classy guy and had a lot of charm. He went out of his way to show me special things of interest.

Tour commenced around 8.30 am and initially was very good. the guide was knowledgeable and was asking what we had already seen in Jaipur. Unfortunately by mid morning the tour started to feel quite 'rushed' with the guide walking ahead of us all the time. At one point we needed to stop for water but the guide was so far ahead of us he did not hear me yelling out to him. We also visited some jewellery and textile shops at the guides recommendations and felt pressured into buying mechanise, but we didn't and soon noticed a change in everyone's attitudes, making us feel very uncomfortable. The tour ended early afternoon, so not a full day tour, but we were glad for it to have ended.

Guide was very informative, and we saw a lot. Only recommendation would be to be a bit more communicative leading up to tour e.g. additional confirmation, and to be a bit more open in planning out the sites to be seen during the day.
