Our tour guide, Karni Singh, was amazing and made the entire experience! He was extremely knowledgeable about the city and made sure to tailor the experience to what we wished to do. Would highly recommend this tour and Karni specifically. We had a great time and also felt very safe and comfortable as two female travelers. 5 stars!

Karmi Singh was a very nice guide. He picked us up from the hotel on time and accompanied us to Lake Pichola. We took a nice boat trip on the lake. We were then taken through the palace, to the Jain temple and to the local market. After lunch we went up to the Monsoon Palace with a great view of the city.

Shoaib was a great guide. Lots of historical and cultural knowledge. Flexible on the schedule across the two days. Good English. Transparent and trustworthy contrary to most guides I had before in India. My best Getyourguide experience in India so far. I recommend for a great time in Jaipur

Highly recommended. Our guide Krish was informative and spoke excellent English. The tour visited all the key places and was well organised and relaxed.

This was a fantastic tour!!! Highly recommend. The Camel ride in the desert and blue city were the highlights :)
