This four hour trip will take you to the Maharaja’s City Palace, which is a magnificent structure lying within the walled city of Jaipur. Here you’ll get to walk around palaces, audience halls and a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.
From here it’s onwards to the Jantar Mantar Observatory, where you’ll see many impressive instruments used for measuring “the harmony of the heavens”. After this you’ll have a photo opportunity at the Palace of the Winds (Hawa Mahal), and will enjoy a drive through some of the pink areas of the city.

Half Day Fatehpur Sikri Tour ( Agra )
Just 37 km (23 miles) from Agra, Fatehpur Sikri is one of the most overlooked wonders of India. This awe-inspiring ancient city of red sandstone is deserving of half a day sightseeing all to itself.
After a one-hour drive you’ll arrive at Fatehpur Sikri. Here you’ll be shown around by your guide, as he gives you an overview of the city’s fascinating history, as well as answering any questions you may have.
After two hours of exploring this complex of monuments and palaces, you’ll rejoin your driver.
Visiting the Taj Mahal is an absolute must during your time in India. The vast beauty and intricate marble-work of its architecture complements the romance of its back story perfectly.
Contrasting the delicate beauty of the Taj Mahal is the robust splendour of Agra Fort – just two kilometres (1.3 miles) down the road. The red sandstone turrets, impenetrable walls and hidden corridors make it a fascinating place to explore.
On arriving at the Taj Mahal, your guide will show you around, giving you an overview of the monument’s history, as well as sharing some interesting anecdotes. With the guide’s assistance, you’ll be free to wander around the grounds, examine the architecture, take pictures and step inside the mahal itself. After two hours, the driver will meet you and take you to Agra Fort. Fifteen minutes after leaving the Taj Mahal, you’ll arrive at Agra Fort and spend some time here before the tour ends.
Optional: If you’d like to see the centuries-old craft of marble-working in action, then mention this to the driver and he’ll happily take you to one of the workshops before the end of the tour. Please note, this optional activity will add an hour to the duration of your tour.
