We visited Jaipur in March 2019 and decided to see the City Palace. The inside tour seemed expensive, but proved excellent value for money. We were escorted by an excellent guide, Gajendra Singh, who was knowledgeable, entertaining and enthusiastic. He also engaged very well with...More

They have some amazing costumes and artefacts to look at here. Also the large audience room is quite something. Do try and spot the photos of the current royal family. Very interesting.

This place is a must visit if only to see how the Rajas of old lived. As this place is frequented by foreigners, getting a guide is a problem and everything is highly commercial here. Would recommend the Grand Tour (@ Rs 3,000/- each) as...More

We didn’t pay the additional Inr3500 to go into the palace proper but we did enjoy the museum. Interesting to see the costumes and accoutrements of maharajahs past.

This place is another incredible building. Absolutely stunning. Every room you go into just gets better and better. The buildings and history of this country are something that all Indian's should be proud of, and many that we met are justifiably so.

I am sorry as we were foreigners our tickets cost top money. I would try to email them to see if you can. Although once you are inside no one ever checked our ticket.
