This bustling and fascinating city has some of the finest examples of Rajasthani architecture and whilst it is a growing city with a modern outlook, camels can be found wandering the streets and rickshaws blend in with the traffic. On arrival you will be taken to your hotel for check-in.
Note: Suggested to arrive by early morning flight in Delhi Later visit the key sights and wonders of the Pink City in the heart of Jaipur.
Visit the Observatory, the Maharaja's City Palace and Hawa Mahal (also known as Palace of the Winds and viewed from the outside only). Built of red and pink sandstone it is said to resemble the honeycomb structure of a bee’s nest. It was called the Palace of Winds as in the original design it had a clever cooling system that allowed a gentle breeze to pass through the Palace – very welcome in the hot Rajasthani summers. It is said to have been built as an observatory where the women of the Maharaja's City Palace could observe the outside world whilst remaining inside the palace.
The bustling bazaars of the old city are a great place to shop and explore and are some of the most vibrant in Asia – Rajasthan is known for its colour!

After early breakfast visit the ancient palace of Amber Fort*, which is exquisite in many ways – size, scale, craftsmanship, history and sits on a hilltop with stunning views. One of the most spectacular buildings contained in the fort is the Sheesh Mahal (Hall of Mirrors), with its walls completely covered with tiny mirrors.
It has been designed so that even if a single ray of light enters the hall, this light is reflected in all the mirrors and the entire hall lights up.
*You have the option to take an elephant ride to Amber Fort. The cost of this is USD 12 per person (2 people on an elephant) or USD 24 (one person atop an elephant).
*Prices subject to change. Also there are strict regulations in place to limit the total number of journeys each elephant can do in a day, and they are only allowed to carry 2 passengers at a time to prevent any over-working of elephants. After the tour, drive to Agra (around 5 hours), on the way you will visit deserted Mughal city of Fatehpur Sikri.
Walk through the city with your guide hearing the intriguing story behind the abandoning of the city and learn about its great architecture. Continue drive to Agra. On arrival,check in at your hotel.
