Begin your day with front-door pickup at your hotel or airport in a private, air-conditioned car. Settle back for a scenic ride to Jaipur and watch the landscape roll by as you enter the desert state of Rajasthan, famous for the lavish lifestyles of its once powerful Rajput kings.
Sights are scattered around the city, but you’ll be whisked between attractions in the comfort of your own vehicle. Start with the city’s most spectacular landmark, the 16th-century hilltop palace complex of Amber Fort, located 7 miles (11 kilometers) outside of town. Wander with your guide through pink sandstone chambers and explore the dazzlingly bejeweled Sheesh Mahal, or Hall of Mirrors. Your driver will bring you to the nearby floating palace of Jal Mahal, suspended over Man Sagar Lake, before a savory Indian lunch.
During the action-packed tour, you’ll also catch a glimpse of the iconic, pink beehive facade of the Hawa Mahal and will have time to linger over relics in the fascinating City Palace. Before heading back to Delhi, you’ll also get a chance to marvel at the Jantar Mantar, an 18th-century sundial, and try your hand haggling over camel-leather sandals at the local bazaar.
The tour concludes at your original departure point.
