Overview
Travel back to the 18th century with a private 2-day tour from Jaipur north to Mandawa, a town dotted with lavish ‘havelis,’ private Indian mansions of historical and architectural significance. With your expert, friendly English-speaking guide, visit several havelis including the Hanuman Prasad Goenka Haveli and Murmuria Haveli, and discover the opulent artistry of Hindu architecture seen in vast courtyards and intricate, lavish décor. You’ll stay overnight in a haveli-style accommodation, giving you a truly immersive experience.
What to Expect
Day 1: Jaipur – Mandawa

In the morning, you’ll be picked up from your hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and taken on a comfortable 3-hour drive north through the state of Rajasthan to Mandawa.

Arrive in this beautiful little town, widely known for its forts and havelis -- magnificent merchant mansions of the 18th and 19th centuries featuring astounding architecture. Check in to your hotel and rest for a bit before embarking on your tour of Mandawa.

Drive around Mandawa and visit the various havelis decorated with bright murals and well-preserved paintings depicting traditional religious subjects and scenes from life of the inhabitants of Mandawa centuries ago.

You’ll take walking tours of Hanuman Prasad Goenka Haveli, Goenka Double Haveli, Murmuria Haveli, Jhunjhunwala Haveli, Mohan Lal Saraf Haveli and Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli, each with its own unique traits but also sharing traditional opulence that's characteristic of 18th-century India.

In between sightseeing, stop at a local restaurant at your guide’s suggestion to have lunch (own expense). At the end of your tour, you may have dinner (own expense) at the hotel or at another local restaurant. Then, soak up the lavish atmosphere as you stay overnight in a haveli-style accommodation.

Overnight: Tulip Inn Mandawa or Mandawa Haveli (both rated 4 stars on TripAdvisor) or similar in Mandawa

Day 2: Mandawa – Jaipur (B)

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel and have free time to enjoy the hotel’s various amenities or explore Mandawa on your own. If you’d like to continue touring with your guide, simply let your guide know the day before. You can decide where and when to go, and your guide will happily drive you for up to 2 hours at no additional cost.

Afterward, you’ll head back to Jaipur and be dropped off at your hotel or the Jaipur airport for your departure flight.
