  • While we did get to engage on most of the activities listed in this tour - there was definitely something wanting in the guiding and thoroughness of activities. Our driver was very nice, brought us out to Chand Baori where we were met by a local, but I wouldn't call him an expert, more like someone who knows a vague amount of information about the stepwell gleaned from his time living in the village. We were able to walk around the stepwell, we technically went on a very short 'tour' of the village, which included such highlights as walking into someone's house for about 12 seconds to see what it was like, but was essentially intended to drive us towards a house where there were numerous rugs for sale. Afterwards we were pointed in the direction of the temple, a sort of beautiful reconstruction of a temple that was destroyed down the road, and told we could walk around it ourselves.

    After the temple and the stepwell things got a bit strange, and here's the point at which I realized it was a very good thing I was neither alone nor an inexperienced traveler. We left the Agra Highway and 'explored' the Indian country-side read here - got a bit lost but eventually found the way for a couple of hour en-route rather circuitous to the Fort. It was lovely to see the Indian country-side, but was by no means a described nor expected part of the tour for which we had paid. Eventually our unflagging driver received enough local direction to find his way to the Fort. It was ultimately a very beautiful fort, gorgeous views of the country-side and incredibly old painted and preserved rooms, then we were eventually lead to a nice Indian Rajasthani lunch. There was no 'scion', I'm not sure such a person exists, the fort is now a heritage hotel that large tour groups can book stays at.

    Our driver found a much quicker route back to Jaipur for which we were very thankful and we got back after about 10 hours of travelling. So while Chand Baori is a beautiful site definitely worth seeing, as was the Fort, the rest could be taken or left. I'd recommend going with a different group, or psyching yourself up for a very off-beat often confusing tour of the Indian country-side with small pitstops to take photos at interesting landmarks.
