This was a great excursion. The timing of the trip was perfect. Mr Sharma, our driver, was absolutely fantastic. We felt very safe despite the chaos that is the ebb and flow to the daily traffic. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off at the airport very timely so there was no stress in our schedule.
Jaipur is a treasure, at least through the eyes of Mr Satish. What a treasure of information and science, along with humor. Our tour guide met us in Jaipur and proceeded to rapture us with the history and the architecture that made up the Palace of Winds, City Palace, Jai Mahal Water Palace, Birla Temple, and Amber Fort. Mr. Satish imparted the wonders of the whitewash recipe that has maintained the sheen and color all these centuries, as well as explained the history of the Kings and what they brought to the country,
As a special treat we added the Jantar Mantar to our excursion and are thrilled we did. This is a equinoctial sundials that is accurate to 2 secs and built in 1724 timeframe. I am still in awe of this site.
The Hotel in Jairpur, Hotel Suryaar, was perfect. Comfortable, clean, and secure. It was an oasis down a side street close to all the attractions in the area
Overall, it was a fantastic two days. My only complaint is we did not have more time....but that was our doing not the tour company.
We couldn't,t go due to adverse weather conditions
Driver was great and knowledgeable, and our guide had many insights. Worth going on.
Excellent in every way.
Driver was on-time and courteous. Had a bottle of water for each ready in the car.
We were 2 ladies, so were relieved to find such a professional driver, and very knowledgable guide. Sanjay knew all the little things like the perfect time of day for a particular photo, and the best time to get to the fort for the elephant ride. I can not fault this tour experience - I will take it again in future, as there is so much to see!
Excellent... All went according to plan, pick up / drop off all as advised. Our guide, Umesh Kumar Sharma was fantastic. REALLY genuinely nice guy that took so much care and interest in our family. I could not rate this highly enough...
love it! everything was great, food, accommodations the tour was very well organized the only thing I didn't like is that felt I was lure into stores by my tour guide everywhere I went with the pretence that they will show me the process of making things.
The puppet show was mediocre and despite paying a lot of money for the show, we were still asked for tips and sold overpriced puppets.
Great tour with a very informative and friendly guide!

We enjoyed this excursion. The guide was very informative but not too heavily overbearing and so allowed my wife and I to explore the Amber Fort independently whilst at all times keeping an eye on us. We are take to the inevitable carpet and textile emporium on the way back to our hotel but overall we were pleased with the experience.
This historical light show was overpriced and so was the dinner and unexpected entertainment during dinner. Entertainers expect a tip. I would recommend the local light and sound show but not Viator's tour. Paid 80 over local asking price.
The tour itself was amazing and enjoyed every minute, the guide although knowledgeable he rushed through it a little and we were not given time to do any shopping at the bazaar, we had to walk through and only look.
This was a great way to get to see Jaipur if you're spending time in Delhi. The drive is a bit long approximately 5 hours each way but certainly worth the trip once you get to Jaipur. The highlight is the elephant ride up to Amer Fort. The guide and driver were very accommodating and wanted to make sure we had a pleasant experience. The hotel staff was also excellent. It was worth the money spent.

Highlight of our India Tour ! We absolutely ask that anyone visiting New Delhi and Agra Taj Mahal not overlook the amazing sights of Jaipur !!! You cant leave india without an elephant ride up to see the Amber Fort ! We decided on the 2 day option so we would not be rushed and this was a very good choice - Viator enlisted the services for our tour company and they were excellent ! We had Mr Sanjay as our guide and Nr Narender as our driver- they were with us every step of the way. We had our choice of hotels in Jaipur and we chose a Taj property the Taj Mahal Palace - wonderful palatial property. We had a detailed city tour and an in depth tour of the City Palace and Hawa Mahal. Mr Sanjay was extremely knowledgeable , affable and on top of that a great photographer ! he knew all the right angles and picture opportunities. Lunch and dinner were included and were at tripadvisor recommended restaurants which was perfect. The Amber Fort visit and elephant ride takes a whole half day to do it justice and our tour went at our own pace- There was plenty of opportunity to visit any arts and craft shops and the company was completely open to our decisions. We elected not to visit any shops as we had already done our shopping and this was respected by Mr Sanjay - he was open to any suggestions we had on what to see and kept reinforcing the company motto that he was there to make this a memorable visit for us. The drive to delhi takes at least 4-5 hours depending on the time of day but the car was very comfortable and air conditioned and Mr Narender stopped along the way as we needed for food and rest stops.
We did Agra in one day from Dehli but this trip to Jaipur definitely needs the 2 day option - I highly recommend the tour company and this Viator tour -
The guide was excellent ad the driver very skilful. The hotel was not good as the promised three separate beds were not provided and the dining room did not know that the food was already paid.
I gave this worth doing because Jaipur itself is amazing, a nice relief from Delhi, and one of the best places in India - really a 5 star place. However, the tour guide was awful - not really interested in being a tour guide. He left me on my own for 2 of the stops on the tour, so I had no information about the places, and could not really communicate with the non-english-speaking people working in those places. Two days is enough - I took the 3 day tour, and it was relaxing, but overly so.
The driver was great, and thankfully skillful - the drive from Delhi is long and hazardous. He stopped at a rest stop going and coming, which was a good thing.
Amazing tour to Amber Fort! Don't miss the elephant ride that allows you to reach the fort from the most scenic way. Very good guide. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide Rinkoo was amazing. He was very enthusiastic and his tours and history lectures were very easy to understand. He is highly recommended and this tour was phenomenal!
Is it worth the price?
I flew in from Varanasi and so it was convenient to have a driver pick us up from the aiport and after drop us off at the train station.
The show was not bad despite us showing up late and catching the end of the Hindi show... but I could have just done this on my own for 4 dollars a person, though the times vary by season so check this!
The dinner was good but DEFINITELY not worth how much viator accounted for? Also the menu looked great
but we had a set meal. I was charged 1.5 Canadian for a water which was a bit strange.
There was a dancing and singing performance during the show which was a little awkward, they insisted on people dancing with them, we were full!

Full on day tour.. Straight to the fort to do the elephant ride and to avoid a long wait. Take good walking shoes though ! Lunch was buffet style at the Holiday Inn and fine. Inevitably you get taken to a jewellery shop and after lunch a textile shop .. Annoying but a fact of Indian life!
Wonderful and relaxing tour.Since we stayed overnight in Jaipur , it was easy going to complete the tour at ease.The City palace , Hawa Mahal in the lake , Hawa Mahal in the town were wonderful. The trip to Amber Fort was marvelous and new experiencing riding on the top of elephant.

Show lasts 45 mins and the story line is about the history. In places got ott but worth the experience. The dinner stop,was buffet but lovely location and good food,
Bardzo fajna i ciekawa wycieczka, przewodnik w porządku. Polecam
the tour was very informative and I would recommend it over just going on your own and doing the walking tour at each site. I can say however you could hire some one locally to provide you a tour and cab ride for less money, we hired a cab and guide for the whole day the next day,for only thirty US dollars.
I also recommend you tell the tour operator up front if you don want to be taken to any of the sites where they will sell you stuff. They will push for it but if you are insistent they will not waste your time with those type side trips.
Great trip - my driver and tour guide were wonderful! Both spoke great English and were friendly and informative. The hotel was nice and the included meals were good as well. It is a long drive for just a few hours of sightseeing - I would recommend using some of your time to explore the city on your own, otherwise you will just see the touristy spots. But overall I enjoyed this trip and would definitely recommend it!
