Itinerary:Day 1: Delhi – Jaipur (L, D)
After pickup in Delhi by your guide, drive four hours (approx.) to Jaipur, the vibrant capital of Rajasthan, also known as India’s ‘Pink City’ because of its buildings painted a terra-cotta pink color. First, see Jal Mahal, an architectural beauty located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake. Admire how the red-sandstone palace seems to be floating in the middle of the lake, a testimony to the ambitious nature of early Indian architecture.
Transfer back to the hotel and enjoy lunch here. Spend the rest of the afternoon either relaxing and taking advantage of the facilities in the hotel or see the interesting pink buildings of Jaipur on your own.
In the evening, meet your guide at your hotel at a predetermined time and drive to Birla Temple (Lakshmi Narayan Temple), a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu (Narayan) and the goddess of wealth, Lakshmi. Walk around the temple with your guide and admire the white marble exterior brightly illuminated against the night sky. Inside, see shrines of Hindu gods and goddesses and panels decorated with paintings of mythological events.
Return to your hotel to dine at its elegant restaurant and spend the night.
Overnight: 3- to 4-star hotel in Jaipur (see below for list of possible hotels)
Day 2: Jaipur – Delhi (B)
After breakfast, check out of the hotel and relax on the drive to the Amber Fort, a Rajput-style fortress situated atop a hill overlooking Maota Lake. The palatial complex was built with red sandstone and marble and is divided into four main sections, which you will tour with your guide. You will find it hard to take your eyes off of the ornate decorations consisting of paintings, carvings and murals.
Then, drive to Hawa Mahal, a palace built in the form of the crown of the Hindu god Krishna. See the careful intermingling of Hindu-Rajput architecture on its domed canopies and Islamic-Mughal architecture on its arches featuring delicate metalwork patterns.
You will then be taken to the heart of Jaipur to visit City Palace, a palace complex with impressive gardens and historical buildings, including the Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal. See the fusion of Rajput and Mughal architecture with European detail. Visit the museum in Chandra Mahal with your guide to see its rich collection of royal costumes and Rajput weapons.
After, relax on your journey back to Delhi and arrive around nighttime.

Traveler ReviewsSee all reviews
Our driver (Mr. Ajit) was very knowledgeable about the local areas we visited and shared with us lots of information about India, Hinduism and his family during the long drive between Delhi and Jaipur, making the trip very enjoyable. Our guide during our time in Jaipur was great at explaining history during our visit to monuments. The private tour made everything easy with all our meals, accommodation and entry tickets taken care of. The hotel booked through the tour company had a great atmosphere and our included meals were great (and they were able to meet dietary requirements we had)
My driver was lovely, my guide was delightful, the trip was exhilarating, the hotel and food were perfect, only problem, my visit was too short, just love India
This was a great excursion. The timing of the trip was perfect. Mr Sharma, our driver, was absolutely fantastic. We felt very safe despite the chaos that is the ebb and flow to the daily traffic. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off at the airport very timely so there was no stress in our schedule.
Jaipur is a treasure, at least through the eyes of Mr Satish. What a treasure of information and science, along with humor. Our tour guide met us in Jaipur and proceeded to rapture us with the history and the architecture that made up the Palace of Winds, City Palace, Jai Mahal Water Palace, Birla Temple, and Amber Fort. Mr. Satish imparted the wonders of the whitewash recipe that has maintained the sheen and color all these centuries, as well as explained the history of the Kings and what they brought to the country,
As a special treat we added the Jantar Mantar to our excursion and are thrilled we did. This is a equinoctial sundials that is accurate to 2 secs and built in 1724 timeframe. I am still in awe of this site.
The Hotel in Jairpur, Hotel Suryaar, was perfect. Comfortable, clean, and secure. It was an oasis down a side street close to all the attractions in the area
Overall, it was a fantastic two days. My only complaint is we did not have more time....but that was our doing not the tour company.
Driver was great and knowledgeable, and our guide had many insights. Worth going on.
love it! everything was great, food, accommodations the tour was very well organized the only thing I didn't like is that felt I was lure into stores by my tour guide everywhere I went with the pretence that they will show me the process of making things.
Excellent in every way.
Driver was on-time and courteous. Had a bottle of water for each ready in the car.
We were 2 ladies, so were relieved to find such a professional driver, and very knowledgable guide. Sanjay knew all the little things like the perfect time of day for a particular photo, and the best time to get to the fort for the elephant ride. I can not fault this tour experience - I will take it again in future, as there is so much to see!
Highlight of our India Tour ! We absolutely ask that anyone visiting New Delhi and Agra Taj Mahal not overlook the amazing sights of Jaipur !!! You cant leave india without an elephant ride up to see the Amber Fort ! We decided on the 2 day option so we would not be rushed and this was a very good choice - Viator enlisted the services for our tour company and they were excellent ! We had Mr Sanjay as our guide and Nr Narender as our driver- they were with us every step of the way. We had our choice of hotels in Jaipur and we chose a Taj property the Taj Mahal Palace - wonderful palatial property. We had a detailed city tour and an in depth tour of the City Palace and Hawa Mahal. Mr Sanjay was extremely knowledgeable , affable and on top of that a great photographer ! he knew all the right angles and picture opportunities. Lunch and dinner were included and were at tripadvisor recommended restaurants which was perfect. The Amber Fort visit and elephant ride takes a whole half day to do it justice and our tour went at our own pace- There was plenty of opportunity to visit any arts and craft shops and the company was completely open to our decisions. We elected not to visit any shops as we had already done our shopping and this was respected by Mr Sanjay - he was open to any suggestions we had on what to see and kept reinforcing the company motto that he was there to make this a memorable visit for us. The drive to delhi takes at least 4-5 hours depending on the time of day but the car was very comfortable and air conditioned and Mr Narender stopped along the way as we needed for food and rest stops.
We did Agra in one day from Dehli but this trip to Jaipur definitely needs the 2 day option - I highly recommend the tour company and this Viator tour -
The guide was excellent ad the driver very skilful. The hotel was not good as the promised three separate beds were not provided and the dining room did not know that the food was already paid.
Our tour guide Rinkoo was amazing. He was very enthusiastic and his tours and history lectures were very easy to understand. He is highly recommended and this tour was phenomenal!
