You’ll weave down alleyways, wander through a bazaar, get your fortune told by an astrologer, and check out one of the latest Bollywood films at a beloved theatre. A dose of history, a dash of culture, and a sprinkling of mystery
What to Expect
Your cycle-rickshaw adventure starts at the Albert Hall, the oldest museum in the city, then takes you out into the crowded alleys of Jaipur to see more of the city’s most famous sites. Along the way, you’ll get a history lesson and hear goose-bumpy stories, old legends, and lost myths that shape life in Jaipur.
Your Jaipur tour will lead you to Bapu Bazaar, the centre of Meenakari jewellery, which is a local specialty of Rajasthan. Dive into the array of colourful trinkets, bandhani, and textiles, and taste a local treat called meetha paan (caramelized betel leaf with betelnut and aniseed) with a chilled lassi. Then, you’ll proceed to Hawa Mahal, a five-storied marvel made of pink sandstone and uniquely carved with 953 windows.
Crossing chaotic laneways, head toward the City Palace, where you’ll get to explore majestic courtyards and gardens, and the impressive buildings that showcase a collection of royal costumes. From there, you’ll proceed to Jantar Mantar, a UNESCO World Heritage site that was built on the principles of astronomy and mathematics.
As evening descends, it’s time for a night on the town in true Indian fashion, with a Bollywood movie at Raj Mandir theatre, which opened in 1976 and is often referred to as the Pride of Asia.
You’ll finish off your tour with dinner at one of Jaipur’s best restaurants, and a visit to a local astrologer. Ask the mystic about your karma andkal (past and future) and experience the fun of this ancient science.
In addition to the above itinerary, a visit to Amber Fort can be arranged, either in the morning or evening as per your convenience. If you wish to add this to your tour, please contact the Jaipur local office.
