Hi, the suggestion we fell to give is: do not do this tour if you are tired and especially if you fell that you cannot handle the Indian caos of the bazars. The pink city is mostly bazars, at least this is what we could see from this tour and unfortunately we could not enjoy it very much because quite overwhelming for us. Pawan is a great person and guide, I think in another route can give many more knowledge!!

Pawan is an amazing tour guide! He is very knowledgeable and kind, and he could answer all my questions about the city and indian culture. I could try different types of food and enjoyed some tea and coffee. Would absolutely recommend!

Pawan is a very nice person who will adapt his tours to your knowledge of India and what you want to see. We loved trying his favourites food, hearing nice anecdotes about the places in Jaipur, and visit the different bazaars with his interesting comments. We wish him all the best .
