Discover the Pink City beyond its forts and palaces and find out what makes it such a big attraction, by unveiling the charisma it holds in abundance. This 3 hour tour is one of the best ways to see that, and gain the best experience of its crafts and cuisine. The tour starts from the bustling Badi Chaupar around 4:30pm, and takes you through the cramped yet beguiling lanes of the city. Witness the markets, a veritable spectrum of colours; interact with the locals and understand the rarefied,age-old culture of the city. The next stage of the walk will take you to the flower, jewellery and spice markets. See how the jewellers work on making such fine and intricate pieces of jewellery out of raw pieces of metal. After this, there will be a visit to a 150 year old private residence, where you will be treated as a guest and can learn more about the city over a cup of tea. You can also visit a deserted haveli that reverberates with an old world charm, lent by its sophisticated frescos, wall paintings and architecture. Take this opportunity to shop around the local markets, while also savouring a multitude of mouth-watering sweets and snacks. The tour comes to an end near the Hawa Mahal.
