We stayed at the Diggi Palace Hotel recommended by our US travel agent Kashmir Gellatly. She also booked our driver and guides. We loved them all!
Our first day in Jaipur our wonderful guide Madan Singh met us promptly in the morning at our hotel, he was dressed in a beautiful colorful vest with a small turban and white jodhpur jeans and looked smashing!!! He was extremely professional and knowledgable and took us to the flower market which was the perfect way to start the day. From there we went to the Amber Fort, at stop to look at jewelry and other sites. Great lunch at the Peacock Restaurant which he recommended. Then we went to a hand block printing store where they showed the technique and we actually did a block print ourselves. He took us a Hindu temple on the festival of Shiva and we saw the Princes there which was very exciting. He took us to all the places we wanted to go and was patient and gracious the whole time. In short he made our first time in Jaipur incredibly memorable. I can't thank him enough or recommend a better guide.
Madan S is the best!!!!
