The scarlet Tikka, the rainbow-colored turban, the vibrant shades of Jaipur... Prepare to be swept off your feet and out of the city! You simply cannot say you've been to India without spending a day in an authentic Indian community - and that's what we're giving you!
This Jaipur tour takes you beyond the city limits, to explore the vibrant villages of Rajasthan, with their clay-plastered walls, thatched roofs, old leafy peepal trees, and native customs and ceremonies.
We'll arrive at Shahpura haveli and proceed to the gigantic farms where you'll learn all about the crops that are being cultivated, the age-old irrigation methods being practiced, and much more. The haveli is built in the vicinity of Shahpura village, a colorful Rajasthani village with hand-painted walls and aangans (courtyards), and a handicraft market. Your guide will teach you the tricks of bargaining in the local market and familiarise you with the region's culture and legends.
Next up, settle in under a tree for a cup of Indian masala chai as you watch women performing mehendi rachai (henna tattooing). You'll learn about the intricate designs and the rural significance of henna - and, if you like, maybe even get one yourself.
You'll finish your tour off with a traditional Rajasthani lunch - but be warned, the aromatic spices and herbs might just spoil your taste buds forever.
