8. From New Delhi: Private Day Trip to Jaipur
Take an unforgettable journey with a private driver and guide from New Dehli to Jaipur, known as the Pink City. Explore the city’s rich culture, inspiring heritage, and stunning architecture while visiting landmark monuments and tasting the local cuisine.
Your day begins with a pickup from your New Delhi accommodation in a modern and airconditioned car with built-in wifi. Snooze during the 5-hour drive or admire the landscape and local life on the road. Arrive in the Jaipur and meet your guide who will give you a briefing of the day’s itinerary.
Your first stop will be at the mighty and pristine Amber Fort where you can observe panoramic views of Jaipur. Next, go to Jal Mahal, which is situated in the middle of a beautiful lake. Take some memorable pictures of this unique site and then head over to enjoy a delicious and exotic lunch at a traditional Restaurant.
Continue to the amazing City Palace Museum, a stunning amalgamation of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture, where the Maharaja of Jaipur still lives. Take a walk through the perfectly manicured gardens, large courtyards, and get an up-close look at the royal lineage of Jaipur.
Next, visit the UNESCO world heritage listed Jantar Mantar, home to the world's largest stone sundial. The final stop of the tour is the iconic Hawa Mahal, or wind palace, made of beautiful pink sandstone. Admire the building’s 300 windows, which were built so that the royal ladies could see daily life, without being seen themselves.
Jaipur is world-famous for its handicrafts, textile, and jewelry and you will have time to walk through its colorful markets. After a bit of shopping, say goodbye to your guide and be driven back to New Delhi.
