Spirit of the trip

Rajasthan - “The land of Kingdoms”, “The land of sun and sand”, “The land of bravery and valour”. It is a state whose cities are nicknamed after various colours, as Jaipur is “The Pink City”, Jodhpur is “The Blue City” and then there is “The city of lakes”- Udaipur.

 “The Essence of Rajasthan” is a tour that gives a strong feeling that Mother Nature and the splendid history have done full justice to the arid landscape here. Rajasthan is a home to various tribes and communities. A land, where on one hook there are Forts, Palaces, Castles and Havelis and on the other are the mud houses, the Great Thar Desert. And that is the beauty of this province.

The villages in Rajasthan have a great history and boast of some of the best attractions. The scene here is very different, your eyes can easily catch a sight of women fetching water from the well, carrying large metal pots on their heads clad in bright coloured ghagra-choli , bangles up to their shoulders, odhni to veil their face, men wearing colourful turbans and white dhoti-kurtas looking for their herd, kids gawking on the street, traditional craftsmen involved in their intricacies.

Whereas, the other side of the coin is Grand, Royal, famed for its splendid heritage. Its Forts, Temples, Palaces, Towers are a unison of great architecture and valour.

This tour package illustrates all - the glory of Rajasthan, from its warm and welcoming people to its bustling cities and antiquated villages. 

Come imbibe a journey to this land with Indian Experience!!

With Indian Experience we “explored the unexplored!”. Never did me or my family on our family tour to India know that such serene villages we would visit in our trip to India. The rural side of Rajasthan is a kaleidoscope of different cultures, tastes and attires. The simplicity of people and the beauty and bounty of nature kept us marevlling at it. 
Definitely It makes a huge difference being lead by someone with deep roots in the area and the professionalism and skill that can only come from experience. I can’t thank Indian Experience enough for this memorable trip.

We are a group of 7 French adults planned to explore the land of Mystery and Diversity.....
As we were planning we contacted Narendra Singh from Indian Experience, A trusted local tour operators in India based in Jaipur....Naren was very prompt in replying to our inquiry through emails. He made sure that our request and questions are clearly answered. He planned two weeks trip for us.Not only did we see the beautiful palaces, temples and forts of Rajasthan but they made us experience the true aesthetics of India by spending time with the natives.
We are grateful to Naren and his staff for showcasing the richest and vivid history and heritage of their country.

Andare in India del Nord è stato per anni il nostro sogno e grazie a Indian Experience siamo riusciti a realizzarlo. Il tour è stato creato sulla base delle nostre esigenze e dei giorni che avevamo a disposizione. Per tutto il tour abbiamo avuto un driver che ci accompagnava e ci raccontava curiosità su questo incredibile paese. La macchina era comoda, spaziosa e sempre in perfette condizioni. Gli alloggi scelti per noi, dimore storiche e non, erano bellissimi e parte dell'esperienza. In alcuni degli hotel abbiamo anche avuto modo di cenare con i proprietari e siamo stati molto soddisfatti. Il tour prevedeva l'alternarsi di piccoli villaggi meno turistici e grandi città per vivere un'esperienza completa del Rajasthan e per osservarne tutte le sue sfumature. In alcune tappe abbiamo avuto anche delle guide che ci hanno fatto immergere nella storia e negli usi e costumi locali. Importanti anche per non perdersi nel caos delle grandi città. Consigliamo vivamente questa agenzia che ha elaborato il tour perfetto per noi e che ricontatteremo sicuramente per altri tour dell'India in futuro.

Sono stato più volte in India, ma mai in Rajasthan. Per questo motivo, ho deciso di rivolgermi ad Indian Experience e a Narendra per organizzare un tour della regione per me e la mia compagna. Volevamo un tour che ci facesse scoprire la regione in tutte le sue sfaccettature e Narendra ha organizzato per noi visite in villaggi più piccoli e città più grandi per farci vivere un'esperienza indiana a tutto tondo. Per tutto il tour abbiamo avuto un driver che ci ha guidati in questa esperienza e ha saputo spiegarci molto della cultura indiana rendendola ancora più completa. I ristoranti che ci ha consigliato il driver sono stati tutti ottimi. Gli hotel erano molto belli, puliti e lontani dal caos cittadino. Ci siamo fermati per alcune notti in dei paesini e abbiamo dormito in delle stupende dimore storiche adibite a hotel. Lì, abbiamo avuto la possibilità di vivere in prima persona l'ospitalità indiana cenando anche con uno dei proprietari dell'hotel che ci ha raccontato la storia del luogo In alcune città siamo stati accompagnati da delle guide nei monumenti principali e abbiamo potuto conoscere meglio la storia e scoprire l'India tramite il loro punto di vista. Grazie a questo tour ci siamo immersi negli odori, nei sapori e nei colori dell'India ed è sicuramente un viaggio che non dimenticheremo mai. C'è ancora tanto che dobbiamo vedere in India e quando torneremo ci affideremo senza dubbio a Indian Experience.

Formerly or still currently occupied by princely families or by grand masters (often merchants), many of them have been renovated and authorized to receive travellers. All different in style, they are invariably steeped in history and charm, charm reinforced by the welcome and hospitality of the descendants of masters when they are present.
