What this tour is about: If you have only one day to spend sightseeing in Jaipur, we suggest you try this tour of all the must-see places.
The traditional fortress of the Kacchawaha kings is at Amber, so this is the logical place from which to begin your exploration. The ride up to Amber can be done on elephant back if you go early in the morning. There are only a limited number of elephant rides, but jeeps are available at any time.
After Amber, the next place to explore is Jaipur City. Built from scratch based on traditional Hindu town planning principles, Jaipur became the new capital of the Kachhawahas in the early eighteenth century. We will show you not only the monuments and palaces of this legendary wealthy city, but also the art and language schools, temples, crafts and guilds patronised by the rulers.
