We went on a one-day tour through the government tourist office. The problem with it was that the place where we spent the longest amount of time was at a handicraft shop (commission for the guide). And we had a guide whose English we couldn't understand. But we were able to see a lot of memorable things, so on that basis, I'd recommend it. over 7 years ago
Hi! I stayed last November only one day in Jaipur and it was fantastic! First, i visited Amer Fort (wonderful) and take a ride in a elephant. Beautiful! Then, i visited Jantar Mantar (a must see!) and my tuc-tuc driver led me to a low budget/fantastic food restaurant named GENIAL. Very good memories of Jaipur only in one day visit! over 7 years ago

We were there for four days in March. I can recommend a really good rickshaw driver if you wish. He was honest and reliable. There is the Amber Fort outside the city that is fairly impressive and you will see the old walls as well. You can also hike up to the fort just behind the city and see the city at sunset, which is cool. They call it the Pink City but we didn't really see much pink.
If you're a science person, there is the Jantar Mantar which has some old sundials and things from hundreds of years ago that still work, including a 27 meter tall sundial.
There is also the royal family residence if you care to do that, but it wasn't for us.
Jaipur is also famous for their lassis, so be sure to have some while you're there. The Lassi Walla shop is the original and can be found in the map in the Lonely Planet guide book.
