Rajasthan Tour Packages

Travellers have often described Rajasthan as a kaleidoscope of colours and we couldn't agree more. Literally translating to the 'land of the kings', Rajasthan is one of the most visited destinations in India. Scores of tourists travel to this enchanting state to marvel at its gorgeous forts, restored palaces and bustling cities.


Rajasthan tour packages are a wonderful way to explore the state since you can customise Rajasthan packages according to your preferences. Whether you'd like to cover Jaipur, Bikaner and Ajmer or explore the cities of Jodhpur and Jaisalmer – Rajasthan tour packages give you the freedom to choose. Tourism has always been an integral part of Rajasthan; so much so that the rush of tourists feels natural and almost familiar. Visitors will also be taken in by charming locals who usually double up as helpful guides when you are making your way through the maze of forts and palaces.


An important part of medieval Indian history, Rajasthan is a land which promises abundant adventure, culture, craft and art. In fact, its bustling markets are one of the reasons that make Rajasthan so popular with tourists from across the world. From bandhani dupattas, colourful lamps, leather juttis to handmade home decor, meenakari jewellery, camel leather bags and lac bangles – there is tons to take back home.


The lush forests of Ranthambore, the breathtaking sand dunes of Jaisalmer, the temples of Pushkar and the cultural milieu in Jaipur come together to give travellers a trip of a lifetime. Journeying through the various cities of Rajasthan will make it clear why it's one of India's most sought-after destinations and why travellers leave behind a bit of themselves in this soul-stirring state.

Rajasthan Highlights

All trips to Rajasthan must begin with a visit to its bustling capital. An apt introduction to the vibrant state, Jaipur or the ‘pink city’ is as charming as it is welcoming. Home to majestic forts, grand hotels and small bazaars – Jaipur is gradually becoming a cosmopolitan with the traditional charms of an old town. It’s an ideal weekend destination from the capital city of Delhi and is a perfect start for those who are on a tour of Rajasthan. Rajasthan tour packages include a trip to all of Jaipur’s marvels including Amber Palace, Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Chokhi Dhani, Nahargarh Fort and Jaigarh Fort. While the 16th century Amber Palace is gorgeous by day, its beauty is even more breathtaking as the sun sets. If your schedule allows, you must include the light and sound show at Amber in your Rajasthan tour packages. Jaipur is also an ideal shopping destination with its lively bazaars including Johari Bazaar for jewellery, Chandpole Bazaar for handicrafts and Hawa Mahal market for small knick-knacks. If, on the other hand, delicious food is what makes your vacation memorable, Jaipur is going to be your favourite place in Rajasthan. Besides the incredibly delicious pyaaz kachori, you must also try laal maas and handi chicken in one of the local restaurants.


Pushkar is another destination which is gradually finding its place in Rajasthan tour packages. Primarily popular as a holy place for Hindus, it is now loved by travellers from across the world for its enthralling bazaars, picturesque ghats, backpacker hostels and an old world charm. Travellers from across the world visit Pushkar during the popular Pushkar Fair which is typically held in December. If you plan to visit Pushkar during the festival, it’s best to book Rajasthan tour packages well in advance since accommodation in the small town tends to get expensive. Located about 15km away from Pushkar is the popular city of Ajmer which is a huge part of Rajasthan tour packages. Known world over for the revered Khwaja Gharib Nawaz or Ajmer Sharif Dargah, Ajmer makes for a great day trip if you are on your way to Pushkar or Jodhpur.


Of course, all Rajasthan tour packages are incomplete without a visit to the Blue City of Jodhpur. Fondly known as the ‘Gateway to Thar’, Jodhpur is most popular for blue-hued houses and the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort. Counted among the largest forts in India, Mehrangarh was built in the year 1459. The fort has served as a backdrop in many Hollywood and Bollywood movies and this is a big reason why it has become a must visit in all Rajasthan tour packages. Jodhpur is also home to the stunning Umaid Bhawan Palace, which has been restored into a hotel and museum besides serving as the residence of the royal family. Head here for a tour of the museum which offers a peek into the bygone era through a rich collection of photographs, paintings and artefacts.


The Golden City of Jaisalmer is an awe-inspiring destination and a huge draw for tourists who are looking to book Rajasthan tour packages. Offering a journey through picturesque sand dunes, majestic forts and rustic villages, Jaisalmer has all that is needed to satisfy your travel appetite.


One of the most sought-after destinations in Rajasthan tour packages, the city is located in the heart of Thar Desert and in proximity to the Pakistan border. The first glimpse of Jaisalmer is of the spellbinding Jaisalmer Fort which stands tall as a proud symbol for the city. Home to a number of museums and small, forgotten havelis, the city is a treasure for history enthusiasts. If you are travelling with little ones, Akal Wood Fossil Park is a must visit. Taking you back in time to 180 million years ago, the park has interesting exhibits including 25 petrified tree trunks, petrophyllum, equisetitis and ptyllophyllum species of the early Jurassic period. However, what attracts travellers most is camping amidst dreamy sand dunes. A huge part of all Rajasthan tour packages, camping in Jaisalmer gives travellers a chance to disconnect from the chaos and take in the peace and beauty of awe-inspiring sand dunes. You can book customised Rajasthan tour packages focussed on camping which will also include enthralling cultural shows, traditional dances, a lavish feast of local cuisine and of course the bumpy but unmissable camel safari.


Rajasthan is a fine example of natural abundance, man-made marvels, culture and tradition. Of the numerous must-visit cities in Rajasthan, Udaipur is loved by all travellers and receives special attention in Rajasthan tour packages, owing to its unforgettable views. Referred to as the City of Lakes, Udaipur has it all – lakes, mountains and majestic palaces. From boating in Lake Pichola, shopping in local markets, sipping coffee at artsy, boho cafes to marvelling at the architecture of the City Palace, a visit to Udaipur will make it clear as to why the city is a favourite with travellers. Although boating, shopping and palace tours are a must in Udaipur, one should definitely include the Dharohar Dance Show at Bagore Ki Haweli in Rajasthan tour packages. The cultural show offers a glimpse of Rajasthan’s unmatched talent and also gives one a glimpse into the state’s rich heritage and culture.

Rajasthan, the land of the Maharajas, infinite lakes and towering palaces, is all that and more! Travellers will tell you that it's a land of unpredictability and holds a mind-blowing surprise around every corner. So much so that if you have truly experienced Rajasthan once, it'll be difficult for you to not go back!<br>
Rajasthan, as the name suggests, is the abode of the Royal Dynasties of the erstwhile princely states of the Rajputana region in Medieval India. The biggest erstwhile princely states that form a part of today's Rajasthan were Mewar (present day Udaipur and surrounding areas), Marwar (present day Jodhpur and surrounding areas) and Shekhawati (present day Jaipur and surrounding areas).<br> I have had the good fortune of staying in various locations of Rajasthan for a period of more than two years as part of my job with my previous organization. I had realized that Rajasthan is a traveler’s paradise and has a location on offer for all kinds of taste buds. It’s mostly believed that Rajasthan is an arid desert and a destination for only winters in India. Contrary to that belief, let me give you a brief about the type of different destinations on offer in Rajasthan.<br> The major cities of Rajasthan are Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Bikaner, Ajmer and Kota. It has a beautiful hill station in Mount Abu. Places of religious significance in Ajmer (most popular destination for Muslims in India) and Pushkar (has one of the very few Brahma Temples in the world). The city of Jaisalmer is famous for parched lands and deserts, while Sawai Madhopur has the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, home to the biggest tiger population in India. It has India’s biggest forts at Chittorgarh and Kumbhalgarh. It also has Bhangarh (believed to be the most haunted place in India) and Haldighati (battle field for some of the famous wars in History). I would give you a brief about some of the above locations subsequently.<br> Rajasthan has decent connectivity from the rest of India vide Air, Train and Roads. It has three airports at Jaipur, Udaipur and Jodhpur. While Jaipur is the only International Airport in Rajasthan, it has direct flights to some of the Gulf counties only. The nearest airport is New Delhi (part of the Golden Triangle), which most of the international travelers land at and then travel approx 200 kms to Jaipur on luxury coaches. The railway network in Rajasthan is not very penetrating , examples being that a city like Jaisalmer has just a few trains arriving daily (mostly from Delhi) and two major cities of Jodhpur and Udaipur not having direct train connectivity among them. Roads are good by Indian standards, even to the most remote location, but most of them are not illuminated at night. Weather is very hot in summers in most of Rajasthan ranging from 40 to 45 deg. Food is diverse. We get to eat pure veg preparations like Dal Bati Churma to a spicy mutton preparation of Laal Maas. People are very fond of fried food like Pyaaz ki Kachori or Mirchi Wada. Sweets like Mawa Kachori and Ghewar are also very popular.<br> Let me begin to tell you about some of the famous destinations in Rajasthan. Let’s begin with Jaipur, The Pink City. Jaipur is the capital city of Rajasthan and also the most developed and cosmopolitan. The city has all the modern amenities including a metro network. It is home to the most beautiful hotels in the world. The two examples would be The Rambagh Palace (Taj) and Rajvilas (Oberoi). I had the good fortune of staying in the former. This palatial hotel is a former Maharaja's residence dating back to 1835 AD. It is still owned by the royal family of Jaipur. Descendents of the famous Maharani Gayatri Devi are the main stakeholders in the palace. In fact, all the famous hotels of Rajasthan have been home to the royal dynasties of that particular region in some bygone era. It has the most exotic interiors and plush upholstery. Suvarna Mahal restaurant inside the palace has everything made of gold. It has been rated as the best hotel in the world by Conde Nast Traveller magazine in 2009. Places of interest in Jaipur include the City Palace (present-day home of the Royal Family), Hawa Mahal, Pink City, Amer Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Nahargarh Fort. All the three forts are located on a hill top, one after the other as you ascend. The best part is that you can take an elephant ride from the entrance to the top and get to feel like a royal king. One of the forts also houses the world’s biggest and heaviest canon of the medieval era. Jaipur is also a shoppers’ paradise and has some very good traditional Indian jackets, handicrafts and shoes on offer at affordable rates. The most famous market for this stuff in Jaipur is Bapu Bazaar.<br> Next we come to Jodhpur, the Suncity, and second largest city of Rajasthan. It was part of the erstwhile Marwar region. The locals here speak the Marwari language. Jodhpur also has some very famous hotels and resorts. The most famous one is The Umaid Bhawan Palace. It is home to the Maharaja of Jodhpur, Shri Gaj Singh. Part of the 350+ room palace is converted into a super luxury hotel run by the Taj Group. It has magnificence written all over it, right from the royal welcome you receive upon entering, with showering of rose petals and sound of Nagadas, to the check out with fanfare. Recently, Umaid Bhawan Palace was awarded as the World's best hotel at the Traveller's Choice Award by TripAdvisor. Other places of interest in Jodhpur are Mehrangarh Fort (one of the best preserved forts of India), Jaswant Thada, Balsamand Palace, Clock Tower, Rock Garden, etc. There are two local delicacies that one must have in Jodhpur, Ker Sangri (dried grass) and Gatte Ki Sabzi. Jodhpur is connected to the major cities of Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore by air. A nearby place to visit would be the sand dunes of Osian desert. It is about 60 kms from Jodhpur and is a desert popular for its gypsy safaris. Other famous places around Jodhpur are Jhalamand, Rajsamand, Balsamand, Khimsar and Rawla.<br> Next we come to Udaipur, also known as Venice of the East. It is a beautiful city surrounded by Aravalli hills and full of beautiful lakes. It is also connected to major cities by train and air. Not to mention that it too has the world’s most beautiful hotels. The two most prominent ones are The Taj Lake Palace and The Oberoi Udayvilas. The Lake Palace is situated in the middle of Lake Pichola and is accessible only by boat, making it a perfect romantic getaway. The hotel was the erstwhile summer palace of the royal family of Udaipur. It is currently owned by Maharaj Arvind Singh and is run by the Taj Group. The location and accessibility make it one of a kind hotel in the world. Udaipur has a very rich history with rulers like Maharana Pratap signifying valour. All places of historical significance bear testimony to the bravery of his clan. Places of interest in Udaipur are City Palace (present-day home of the Royal Family), Fateh Sagar (for speed boat rides), Lake Pichola, Jag Mandir, Saheliyon ki Bari, etc. You can also shop in the by lanes of Udaipur for some fancy handbags and shoes made from camel leather. Places near Udaipur are also very significant in the history of Rajasthan like Kumbhalgarh, Chittorgarh, Haldighati and Ranakpur (famous for woodwork).<br> Lastly, we would talk about the famous desert city of Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer is not well connected with other cities. It is the last station on the north-western railway and has a very few trains, mostly from Delhi. There is no air connectivity. Jaisalmer is a very small city which has a fort in the middle named Sonar Kila. Half of the population lives inside the fort. There are many shops inside the fort which sell all kinds of souvenirs. There are a lot of hotels in Jaisalmer, including the famous Suryagarh, but the main attraction for tourists visiting Jaisalmer are the tents in the Sam Desert. The Sam Desert is situated about 40 kms from the main city towards the Indo-Pak border and is the main attraction of not only Jaisalmer, but the entire Rajasthan. It has beautiful sand dunes for camel and gypsy rides. The sunset looks amazing from the dunes. People spend the night in make-shift tents and witness desert life from up-close. There are many cultural shows organized during the evening inside the tents, including the famous Kalbeliya dance of Rajasthan, puppet shows, magic shows, etc. Overall, the deserts at Jaisalmer would be the number one item on my checklist of must visit places in Rajasthan.<br> Let me add something about Sawai Madhopur, which is home to the famous Ranthambore National Park. Ranthambore is home to 64 tigers and is the largest tiger reserve in India. There are many famous hotels around Ranthambore including Vivanta by Taj and Oberoi Vanyavilas. You can Safari in a 5-seater gypsy or a 20-seater canter. It's better to book online in advance if you want a gypsy, as they are mostly sold out. Apart from the tiger, other animals sighted at Ranthambore are spotted deer, sambhar deer, wild boar, crocodiles, monkeys and various types of birds.<br> With a brief description of Rajasthan above, I hope to have added fuel to the burning desire of all travelers who want to visit this "Land of Kings" atleast once in their lifetime.<br> Happy Travelling !!!<br>
