What To Expect

Start your tour in the morning with pickup from your Jaipur hotel, the airport, or the train station.

Relax in your private air-conditioned vehicle as you travel to the outskirts of Jaipur to visit the Amber Fort, built in 1592 and now designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Go inside the fort complex with your guide to visit Jai Mandir Temple and Sheesh Mahal, the hall of mirrors.

Your next destination is Jal Mahal (Water Palace), a Rajput-style palace that appears to float in the middle of Man Sarobar lake. Continue on to Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), a 5-story tall pink sandstone palace that is an architectural masterpiece.

Stop for lunch at a local restaurant (if option selected), then head into the heart of the old city to take in the City Palace, where the King of Jaipur once lived. Then go shopping for a variety of goods such as gemstones, bangles, silver jewelry, clothing, ceramics, and textiles.

Your tour ends in the evening with return to your hotel, or the airport or train station.

Amber Palace

Meet your guide at your Jaipur hotel or arrange to be picked up at the airport or railway station in Jaipur at approximately 8am. Begin the tour by visiting the Amber Fort. The Amber Fort is situated on a ridge just outside Jaipur City and is beautifully reflected in the lake below. Inside the fort, you will encounter the world-renowned Jai Mandir temple with its dazzling Sheesh Mahal hall of mirrors. The walls and the ceiling of the Mahal are covered with a beautiful array of mirrors, which reflect any streak of light, illuminating the entire room.

2 hours Admission Ticket Included

Jal Mahal

Continue the tour by making a photo stop at Jal Mahal around 11am. This Rajput style "Water Palace" sits in the center of the Man Sarobar lake. The lake is often dry during the summer, but the winter monsoons frequently turn it into a beautiful lake filled with water hyacinths.

Fun, informative, well-paced tour of Jaipur highlights
jdavidjentsch, Jan 2020
Our full day tour with Ashok (guide) and Bobby (driver) was fun, well paced, informative and entertaining. In addition to ample time to explore each of the main destinations, we had time to stop at a step well and at the beautiful and inspiring Gatore Ki Chhatriyan. Overall, this is an excellent tour that will be very appropriate and satisfying for most 1st time visitors to Jaipur.

Know Jaipur
Christina_M, May 2019
If you really want to get to know Jaipur, I COMPLETELY recommend this tour! Gheem (our driver) and Ashok (our guide) were amazing and made us feel very much at home. Ashok, a historian, was able to answer all of our many questions about the Hawa Mahal, Amber Fort, and all of the other attractions on this tour. However, more importantly, he was also able to answer our questions about the history behind the cultural norms that existed or continue to exist and why. My husband and I love to travel; not just to see the sites on a checklist, but to get to know the people and the culture, and that is exactly what we received on this tour. As a couple of bonuses, Ashok and Gheem were more than happy to accommodate our curiosity by suggesting other sites and places where we could learn more about interests of the people of Jaipur as well as the places that would give us a better understanding to our questions. And... Ashok was able to keep the interest of our two children (ages 14 and 10). He engaged them every step of the way, and at the end of the day, they were able to tell us what they had learned. Believe me, anyone who can keep the attention of two girls that age, deserves 5-stars! I totally recommend this tour, and have nothing but praise for Ashok and Gheem!

Raffi_E, Jun 2018
I had a very pleasant experience in my Jaipur tour with tour guide Ashok and driver Dara. Ashok is a very genuine and knowledgeable person. It was great to learn about the history of the sites, Jaipur and India as a whole. Ashok was a very patient person and went out of his way to ensure that the experience of the tour went beyond just a factual explanation of the sites but rather an experience of meaningful conversation. He is also a very interesting person with some nice hobbies and past and it was great to learn about him as a person. On top of the sites stated in the tour, Ashok also took me to some other sites that were as beautiful as the ones included in the tour. I would highly recommend this tour.

David_J, Mar 2018
Our tour guide Ashook was provided us with a life changing experience in Jaipur. The morning of the trip started off as expected with a tour of the Amber fort. Ashook was very knowledgeable about the site and really encouraged us to ask all of the questions we wanted and to take the time we needed to explore the site to it's fullest. The lunch at city palace was where the trip took the life changing turn, we invited Ashook to share a meal with us and really got to know him as an individual. We then informed him that our goal was to become fully immersed in the culture and he did just that. He took us to a surprise monument where we were encouraged to take our shoes off, sit down and listen and feel everything. Ashook took time to explain Indian culture, religion, various symbols, and hand reading. This really made our trip unforgettable and indescribable in many ways. Ashook is also a jokester and made us laugh many times along the way. If you're in Jaipur and want the best possible experience, then I highly recommend that you book Ashook as your tour guide. You won't regret it!

Anna G, Mar 2018
We were a group of 5 pax and had an incredible unforgettable day. The tour was very interesting and very well planned. Our guide Ashok took the time to answer all our questions and described us fully every fort or street we visited. Definitely worth it! We would suggest this tour to anyone keen on the history and culture of the magical Jaipur! One thingthat could be improved was that we wished Raj and Ashok had given us information about the tour in advance, without us asking for them.

Rachel I, Mar 2018
We had the MOST AMAZING TOUR of Jaipur with Ashok! I would request him specifically when you book- he was one of the highlights of the tour in addition to learning about and experiencing such an amazing city! Ashok met us at our hotel at 8am and we were off for a packed day. We started off with Amber Fort learning about the architecture and history, we went to the Mirror Palace with millions of mirrors which came from Belgium, we also went to City Palace which is truly mesmerizing, the history and grounds of this palace is so rich! Ashok arranged for us to have a delicious Indian lunch at a great restaurant, we went to an elephant sanctuary where we learned about saving elephants and got to ride them and feed them. We went to a tea shop where we learned about different tea leaves and which ones are good for which ailments and also about spices, India is known for its spices and flavorful cooking! We also stopped at a jewelry store- Jaipur is known for its stones, though I'm sure if you want to limit shopping that would be totally fine. We also went to a textile store where we leaned about Indian made carpets, the whole process was fascinating and seeing these people put so much time and love into their work was inspiring. We were a group of 8 and were in India for a wedding so the next day Ashok helped us coodinate a bus to go to a clothing store, we all had saris and sherwanis made and they were delivered to our hotel the next day. We walked along a shopping area negotiating for clothes, bangles, shoes- everything. Don't ever pay full price in India! Everything is negotiable!! Ashok also had a few special surprises thrown in, we went to a hidden area with tombs, it was so peaceful and right in the middle of a neighborhood- we never would have found it on our own. We also went to an amazing dinner with singing, dancing and delicious food. There was an ongoing list of best food, and the restaurant Ashok took us to won for the whole trip! Ashok also arranged for us to see a block printing factory- the attention to detail and handiwork was mind blowing! I'm sure I am forgetting little nuggets but overall the tour was incredible, Ashok was fun, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about everything Indian. He was patient with all of our questions and was happy to pivot the plan based on our interests and made sure we made the most of Jaipur. We would 100 recommend this tour and especially Ashok! Overall absolutely one of the highlights of our time in India!
It was a amazing tour. Our tour...
It was a amazing tour. Our tour guide Ashok from Nikita holidays was wonderful, very knowledgable and attentive to our needs. We were given completed historical information about the Amber Fort and City Palace. We learned about the kings and his hereditary, how the fort and palace was built. Despite hundreds of years ago the building still stands beautifully and the colour never faded much. They are full of Indo Islamic architecture around the buildings. I especially like the Mirror Palace that the king used during winter. We also visiting Hawa Mahal, Water Palace and some surprise places that Ashok took us. You need to take this tour to know the surprises! - it is worth the money. Btw, lunch was great, not spicy, taste delicious and We love it!

David B, Dec 2017
The tour was advertised as a full day tour with lunch. We were collected from our hotel at 8 and were back by 1 o’clock having had lunch. The four hours we did spend on the tour were excellent. The Amber Fort was particularly impressive. Guide and driver both fine.

Daniel S, Sep 2016
Great service and a great price. Guide knew about all the monuments and was really flexible, allowing me to wander around for a while to take it in. The driver, Sharma, even showed me around a few other sights once the tour came to a close and showed me the cinema. Way to go the extra mile!
