This was a really great way to see Jaipur! It's a long drive but well worth it. I stayed at the Peppermint hotel, really great, Sunjay my guide was so knowledgable on the history! The palace and amber fort were fantastic. I wish I had another day to explore. Thank you
Excellent food, delightful family. Unfortunately our hostess was not correctly informed about our dietary requirement nor the dishes we wanted to learn to cook. Would have liked more hands on experience. Took ages to get to the apartment, suspect the driver did not know where he was going. The pick up time on the tour information was not the actual pick up time.
I confirmed this trip via email about 5 days prior from the US and got a response right back. Our driver met us at our hotel right on time. The car was just fine with air conditioning and seat belts. I want to emphasize that our driver was excellent - but note that driving in India is not for the faint of heart. I guess you just have to experience it. We met our guide in Jaipur who took us to our hotel which was nice. We checked in and then toured some sights. The next day we took an elephant ride to the top of the Amber Fort. Great pictures. The pink city is not to be missed.
I always try to see something from the arts when I travel to any country. It could be a concert, ballet, or play. While I was in Delhi I went to Kingdom of dreams and saw the "Zangoora" Bollywood Show. It is a 2 1/2 hour show but it has a 20 minute intermission. The costumes and set design is good enough to win the Academy Awards. There is so much to look at on the stage because there is so much going on. There are movie theatre screens on both sides of the stage that also has something playing that goes along with what is happening on the stage. There are people and objects that kind of fly down from the ceiling to the stage from the back of the auditorium.I really enjoyed the show. I also liked the area where there are shops, restaurants, and food courts. The ceiling is very high and made to look like a sky and it does. I found that ceiling interesting. However, with as much money as we paid I felt that our lunch could have been at one of the restaurants instead of the food court and this is their need for improvement. That is why I did not rate this tour a five. Driver and guide was very nice.
we had a wonderful trip while in jaipur.. our tour guide was BP. on our way back to Delhi, our driver was pulled over at one of the toll roads after it appeared that he didn't pay a toll tax.. our driver didn't speak any English and couldn't tell us what the problem was..it was extremely scary
Great tour. The highlight is the elephant ride. Be careful with the guide, the ride is included, ours insisted it wasn't and I paid for it. When I notified Viator, they inmidiately refunded the cost.
This was one of the best tours I've ever had- beautiful city! The tour guide named Ashish was passionate about the city and so extremely friendly, informative, and open to all questions. My family and I were able to learn not only about delhi's history but India's as well! Had the best experience!

Very informative and a great way to see all the 'must see' aspects of Delhi in an organised fashion without an overload. There was just enough places to see without feeling it was too long and the guide was excellent.

Well it's a long drive no way around that but driver made good time and had a nice midway stop for breakfast. Tour guide and Driver were good and we had a great time. The Elephant Ride was definitely a highlight.
Wonderful local agent intrepid journeys great tour guide FAB so knowledgeable loved every minute of this trip
Jaipur was great, but the ride took 7 1/2 hours and the car was old. The restaurant was a littlebit dirty with average food. They wanted to bring us to shopping places where they get comission. The guide spoke bad english. We spent 5 weeks in India and we can tell it was overpriced for what we got.
This was an absolute nightmare to try arrange correct pickup although times were stipulated upon booking. What we paid was a total waste of money we did not learn any cooking and it was all rushed. Would not recommend anyone to waste their money doing this. I am extremely disappointed
Our excursion in Delhi has been one of the best experiences I’ve booked through Viator. If you, like me, do not believe in “bubble travel” where you go from the airport to a luxury hotel to an air-conditioned car, this is the activity for you. It doesn’t come more authentic than this!
Our guide Anupam fetched us at the hotel and from there the journey on the various transport modes in Delhi started. The metro is clean and orderly and in a better state than many European cities I’ve been to. Everywhere we went people offered smiles and curious looks. The tuc-tuc ride is also an experience through the hectic traffic and millions of people. We however felt perfectly safe in the capable hands of our guide and followed him like baby ducks.
We were greeted at Mumtaz’s home with flower garlands and a red dot on our foreheads to bade us welcome and we felt right at home in her delightful little blue kitchen. Ingredients were explained and then the cooking began. Everything we ate was a flavour explosion from the spicy chai tea to the golden dahl and the paneer curry. We each had a turn to try our hand at making chapattis and had a good giggle at our less than perfect efforts.
We ended off the evening with Mumtaz painting our hands with wonderful henna art. The people of India are hospitable, friendly and interested in diversity.
All in all a magical experience.
A very good value! It was hard to understand my tour guide. Very nice hotel. The elephant ride was great.
The tour to Jaipur was fantastic! The driver did an excellent job of getting us safely and comfortably from Delhi to Jaipur and back (no easy task in India!) and even pointed out interesting sites along the way. Our guide was terrific and very accomodating to our needs. The highlight was the elephant ride into the Amber Palace. Also really enjoed the detailed tour of the palace and getting to know more about palace life as well as the history and culture of the pink city. I would definitely recommend!
