Jaipur, also known as the Pink City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Most tour and travel companies when offering travellers holiday options will most definitely offer tour packages to Jaipur. Jaipur is one of the three prominent destinations in the famed Golden Triangle tour along with Delhi and Agra. The Pink City is steeped in history with its numerous forts, temples and palaces that tell stories of a glorious past dotting the city.

Getting back to normal has not been easy; we have had so many things to sort out.
However, we do want you to know that we both had an excellent time in India, and will have wonderful memories to last us a long, long time.
India Experience certainly had things well organized. Our hotels were well chosen, comfortable, clean, with spacious and well equipped rooms.
You will doubtless be aware that we made a few changes to the itinerary! Again, Billou was very co-operative, but quite firm that we should not oblige him to exceed his driving hours or overall daily distances.
On our way to Udaipur, we detoured to Chittaugarh Fort, which was really very special. We were able to drive through the seven gates into the Fort and find the Victory Tower, temple, pool and views over the town. The city of Udaipur was stunning; we enjoyed the boat trip on Lake Pichola, views of the Lake Palace and tour of City Palace. Unfortunately we thought the visit to Sahelion-Ki-Bari was a waste of time. More time in the town, perhaps crossing the footbridges and exploring the ghats, would have been much better.
The Trident here was much better than its sister hotel in Agra.
The country between Udaipur and Ranakpur was lovely. We enjoyed our visit to the Temples, but we opted not to take lunch at the Orchard.
We liked the hotel at Jodhpur, and our visit to the Clock Tower area. Mehrangarh Fort was very impressive; we thought this was a real highlight.
On the way to Jaisalmer we stopped to visit the fort at Pokoran. Whilst charming, this was rather more of the same. We did not stay too long.We enjoyed the visit to the lake, the fort and havalis within.
Now that we are back in England, we are glad to tell friends what a superb time we had. The arrangements were good and we would gladly use India Experience again.
Thank you for planning a perfect tour for us. The entire arrangements were excellent and in the eleven days we could practically cover the entire state of Rajasthan. We had a enjoyable trip and a wonderful experience.
With Best Wishes,
Shripad, Swarupa & Kaustubh ..[+] More

Hawa Mahal is the most visited and probably photographed landmark in the city. It is located in the heart of a marketplace and can easily be recognized by its towering structure and many window-like cut outs. Through history, Hawa Mahal, known as the Palace of Winds, allowed women to observe the happenings outside without being seen themselves. The City Palace is another popular attraction in the Pink City. It houses several collections of royal treasures within several ornate halls. The royal family of Jaipur also resides in part of the palace. Near the City Palace is Jantar Mantar Observatory. Undoubtedly the most distinct sight on the outskirts of the city is Amber Fort. Pronounced as Amer, the fort, built in sandstone contains within in smaller palaces or mahals including the ornamental Sheesh Mahal or the Palace of Mirrors. There is also a temple inside Amber Fort. If youre not in the mood to climb up the ramparts of the fort, you can opt to take an elephant ride or a jeep up. Both are easily available at the entrance of the fort. Other attractions in Jaipur include Jaigarh and Nahargarh Forts, Govindji Temple and Jal Mahal.Jaipur Packages - Best offers on Jaipur Tours & travel packages at MakeMyTrip.
