    Blue City

    In the city of Jodhpur, a sea of boxy indigo houses stretches for more than 10 kilometers along the walls of the historic walled old city. A blue pigment coating on a house used to indicate that a Brahmin—the priests of the Indian caste system—dwelled there, but over time the color became a badge of identity for non-Brahmins, too. It’s also said to have insect-repelling abilities.

    Clock Tower Road

    The clock tower is a popular landmark in the old city. The vibrant Sardar Market is close to the tower, and narrow alleys lead from here to a bazaar selling vegetables, spices, Indian sweets, textiles, silver and handicrafts. It is a great place to ramble around at leisure.

Ravi is really nice, I was the only one on the tour and he proposed to take a route different from what he usually does. We got on his scooter and went to explore the off the beaten path spots of Jodhpur! It was really nice and chill (the chill part was very surprising since we are in India). I also got to have chai with some of his friends. Last but not least got some great recommendations on where to buy things and where to eat! Thank you Ravi!

Ravindras tour of Jodhpur was extremely enjoyable! He was born and raised here and his love, passion and enthusiasm for his city is quite something. He was very informative and took me places I would have never been to without a guide. We sampled a lot of snacks along the way from some of Jodhpurs most iconic food institutions. I highly recommend booking a tour with him!

Informative, fun, friendly, well structured and well thought-through with just the right amount of background information. Ravi has taken up to places we would never have gone on our own we specially liked the hidden blue city - after his tour I feel I got to see jodhpur in a way that I would not have seen it on my own. Thank you

What an informative and interesting tour! Ravi was so well informed and, even though this isn't a food tour, he bought us so many street snacks and introduced us to do many things we hadn't tried yet! He has such a great, calming demeanor and really goes at your pace. We really can't recommend this guru highly enough. Thank you so much for the best day we had in jodhpur, thanks to you!!.
