Know More about this tour

Everyone will meet at Gadiya Devra Temple in Udaipur and start this wonderful walking tour. Experience the majestic steps of Gangaur Ghat on the banks of Lake Pichola, the heart of the city. Check out the beautifully restored royal architecture, then have a snack stop at a 150-year-old heritage art house for tea and samosas. The house is intricately decorated with fresco paintings and traditional artwork — a mini private gallery for you to explore!

Later you’ll visit the Sai Mandir and Jagdish Temples, where countless pilgrims visit every day. We’ll then proceed to the Chowk area, and en route see Maje-ki-Baoli, a century-old unique step well. Then, we head to the utensil-making colony of Kasara Ki Oi, and further on to Bada Bazaar. From here, you’ll weave along a trail of local trades and crafts. You’ll walk through the Sunarwada jewellery market and Mochiwada shoe market, where you can indulge your inner shopaholic with pairs of traditionally embroidered Rajasthani jutti (decorated shoes). As you walk through the markets, you’ll have time to chat with locals and learn more about their ancient trades.

The next stop is a local potter’s house, where you’ll witness the traditional techniques for making clay pots and water pitchers. Want to get your hands dirty? Climb behind the potter's wheel and put your skills to the test by making a pot (or if you’re really good, maybe two). The tour will ends at the Delhi Gate. You’ll bid farewell and have the rest of the afternoon free to explore the city on your own.

  • I enjoyed this tour but there were certain aspects that could have been better.
    1- my confirmation letter listed a temple as the meeting place. I could not find it on a map so I called Viator and eventually found out that the guide would come to my hotel.
    2- Most of the tour was spent walking through the markets. Not really ancient arts though....
    3- The guide spent a lot of time on his phone.
    4- I think the price was high for this type of tour.
