Tour description provided by Viator
Explore Jaipur’s top cultural and architectural attractions on this private sightseeing tour. Marvel at the impressive architectural styles of sprawling palatial complexes like Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal and City Palace. Visit UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jantar Mantar and enjoy a unique cultural experience – riding an elephant! In between sites, indulge in an authentic Indian lunch at a local restaurant. You’ll travel in the comfort and ease of a private, air-conditioned vehicle and spend between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours at each attraction, depending on your preferences.
Your guide will pick you up from your Jaipur hotel in the morning and take you by private, air-conditioned vehicle to Amber Fort. Upon arrival at the bottom of the hill near Maota Lake, you’ll enjoy a unique cultural experience of riding an elephant!
Once your decorated elephant delivers you to the top of the hill, follow your guide inside Amber Fort to visit Jai Mandir, a chamber of glittering mirrors; Shila Devi Temple; Diwan-e-Aam, an 18th-century monument known as the ‘Hall of Public Audience;’ and its counterpart, Diwan-e-Khas, a Mughal- and Rajasthan-style monument known as the ‘Hall of Private Audience.’ You’ll also get a great bird's-eye view of Jal Mahal, a palace located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake.
Head back down the hill with your guide aboard a Jeep and re-board your private vehicle for a tour of Jaipur, the ‘Pink City.’
Visit Jantar Mantar, an impressive UNESCO World Heritage-listed architectural-astronomical observatory, and then take a tour of City Palace, a palatial complex including Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal palaces.
Then, stop for a photo opportunity at Hawa Mahal, known as ‘Palace of the Winds,’ before browsing curio items and souvenirs at Bapu Bazaar. Your guide will point out the market’s most popular item: mojari (handcrafted embellished footwear).
You’ll spend between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours at each attraction, depending on your preferences. In between sightseeing, your guide will take you to a local restaurant to enjoy an authentic Indian lunch.
After your tour, you’ll return to your Jaipur hotel in the evening.
