The day before this tour, we joined the tour in Agra by the same company(It was good!)After that tour, we were taken to their office and asked to pay for the entrance fee for the tour in Jaipur because they would buy tickets in advance by internet. He told me it was 4000Rp for 2 people which was the same price if we buy tickets by ourselves, so we paid 4000Rp. But actually, it was 2500Rp.. And more, we asked him to take us The Palace of winds and paid for the tickets for it, too, but the guide tried not to enter there as no worth seeing inside(just taking photos) But I told him I would like to enter because we had paid for the tickets for it, so he bought us the tickets and we entered. It was worth seeing! And we didn’t have a time in Bazar which I asked to go. The guide took us the textile shop and jewelry shop which we didn’t ask to go. (But the shops ware not bad) Anyway, both the guide and the driver took effort to get a good review from us. So overall, we had a nice time.
We elected to travel to Jaipur from our hotel in New Delhi by train, A driver picked us up from our hotel and drove us to New Delhi rail station. The train was a fairly modern air conditioned train called the Ajmer Satabdi Express and our seats were in the comfortable Executive Chair Class carriage. On arrival at Jaipur, we were met by Janu, the owner of the tour company who immediately made us feel very welcome. We then met our tour guide Kumar who was very friendly and knowledgeable. Janu stayed with us as our driver. The tour took us to Jantar Mantar, at site of very interesting large stone and marble astronomy instruments, the City Palace, the Amber Fort, The Water Palace as well as other fascinating places in Jaipur. During the drive between sites, Janu would give us interesting stories about old and modern Jaipur. A wonderful and fascinating tour which we immensely enjoyed.
The tour was very well organized, Harshit was a great tour guide and gave his best to explain everything and answer our questions. He also accomodated our request to stop for a visit that was not planned at the beginning. We felt very safe in general going around with him and the driver. We would definitely recommend this tour to anybody who wants visit Jaipur and see all the main landmarks.
The tour is awesome, Jaipur is beautiful. As a private tour, if you have a recommendation or want to change a few things you can. Our guide Hitesh was a really nice guy, funny and informative. We recommend to anyone!
We really enjoyed our tour with our driver cum guide; he was very friendly, caring very good English; he knew the city well and the places to go; we would give the tour group and the guide a 10 out of 10!!!
