What this tour is about: If you want a look at the real Jaipur, come on this tour! Take a stroll with us inside little known lanes of the Walled City, where the old ways of life continue uninterrupted.
The streets are redolent of spices – turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom and several more. Women haggle over the price of bangles and sarees. The faithful offer prayers in little shrines at roadside corners. Vendors sell sweetmeats and spicy delicacies, the chai stalls do brisk business. Schoolchildren wind their way home through narrow lanes. Old arts and crafts still flourish in the bazaars. In the wedding season, the celebration and gaiety spills out on the streets. During festivals, there are colourful processions, with dancing and music.
