Day 1: Arrive in Jaipur

Welcome to your  ‘Explore Rajasthan' tour. On arrival at Jaipur airport or railway station, kindly transfer to the hotel. After the check in, kindly proceed to the allotted room. Lunch will be served in the hotel. Rest of the afternoon is at leisure. In the evening proceed to Choki Dhani for a glimpse of village life and have a traditional Rajasthani dinner. Chokhi Dhani, a Rajasthani village themed resort, situated in the outskirts of Jaipur, is a representation of the culture, traditions and lifestyle of village life in Rajasthan. Overnight stay in Jaipur. (L, D)

Day 2: In Jaipur

Jaipur's past is never too far from hand. The city of victory, Jaipur presides over the fascinating desert state and its people surrounded by rugged hills, each crowned by a formidable fort; and beautiful palaces, mansions and gardens dotted throughout its precincts. The palaces and forts of yesteryear that were witness to royal processions and splendor are now living monuments, accepted quite naturally into the lifestyles of the people of the "pink city". After buffet breakfast at the hotel, you will be driven just outside Jaipur to the ancient capital of Amer to see the fabulous Amer Fort. Maharaja Mansingh, Mughal Emperor Akbar's most successful General, started the construction of Amer Fort in the 17th century. Before the City Palace was constructed in Jaipur, Amber was the seat of power. The fort is surrounded by fortified battlements and overlooks the Moat Lake. Ruins and remains are spread over the Aravalli hills and sprawling crenulated walls lattice the surrounding area. A jeep will take you to the fort and once on top, stroll through the sprawling complex of courtyards and halls. Many of the rooms have delightful wall paintings, with precious stones and mirrors inlaid in the walls. Most fascinating, perhaps, is the Sheesh Mahal (hall of mirrors) where a single lamplight is reflected in the many mirrors, lighting up the room. En-route to Amer you will stop and see the 'Palace of Winds', otherwise known as Hawa Mahal. It is really an elaborate facade behind which the ladies of the court used to watch the daily goings on in the street below. In the afternoon, you will visit the city of Jaipur. Among the highlights to be seen while touring Jaipur include the City Palace, which is an overwhelming complex of exquisite palaces, gardens and courtyards, decorative art and carved doorways. The palace museum houses collections of rare manuscripts, armoury, costumes, carpets and miniature paintings. Walk to the adjacent Jantar Mantar or Astronomical Observatory made by the Maharaja of Jaipur, built in 1726 and is one of the five such astronomical wonders built by Sawai Jai Singh and makes accurate predictions even to this day. You will also have the opportunity to wander about the local markets.
Return to the hotel after sightseeing. Rest of the evening is at leisure. Overnight stay in Jaipur. (B, L, D)

Day 3: Onto Bikaner (310 Km/Approx 7 hrs)

Today, after breakfast, enjoy a drive to the desert city of Bikaner. Bikaner is dotted with scores of sand dunes and retains the medieval grandeur that permeates the city's lifestyle. More readily called the camel country, the city is distinguished for the best riding camels in the world and hence boasts of having one of the largest Camel Research and Breeding farms in the world. The ship of the desert is an inseparable part of life here. Lunch will be in a Dhaba / restaurant Enroute. Before entering the city, you will drive past the Camel Breeding Farm. This camel research and breeding centre had its roots in the Camel Corp of the British army. Today, it is only one of its kinds in Asia with more than 250 camels and baby-camels that are quite a spectacle. On arriving at Bikaner, check into the hotel and proceed to visit the Jain Temple. The Temple is one of the beautiful shrines in Bikaner, which is dedicated to the 5th tirthankar of the Jains, Shri Sumatinathji. It was constructed in the 15th century. The Jain temple is beautifully constructed using sandstone and white marble. Religious carvings, leaf paintings, fresco and beautiful mirror work on the shrine are the highlights of the shrine.

Day 4: Bikaner to Jaisalmer (335 Km /Approximate 7 hrs Drive)

This morning, after breakfast, check out of the hotel and proceed for a sightseeing tour of Bikaner and visit the Junagarh Fort. Junagarh Fort is one of the famous testaments of Bikaner. The fort was constructed during the period of 1588 to 1593 by Raja Raj Singh, General of the Army of Mughal emperor, Akbar. Famous for its massive structure and architectural designs, the fort is spread over a sprawling area that is bounded by 986 metres long wall. The fort comprises 37 bastions, a moat and two entrances. Unlike other forts, this fort was not built on an elevated platform but at a ground level. Among the noteworthy attractions within the Junagarh Fort are Anup Mahal, Hawa Mahal, Chandra Mahal, Phool Mahal, Badal Mahal, Diwan-e-Khas, Dungar Mahal, Ganga Mahal and Rang Mahal. The fort also has a Har Mandir that was used by the royal family to worship their God and Goddesses. Courtyards, balconies, kiosks and windows built with red sandstone and marble are the other attractions of the fort. After the sightseeing tour, continue the drive to Jaisalmer. Arrive at Jaisalmer in the evening and check into the hotel. Rest of the evening is at leisure for independent activities. Overnight in Jaisalmer. (B, EL, D)

Day 5: In Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer looks as if it has grown out of the desert. Like a giant sandcastle, its golden coloured fort thrusts skywards out of the surrounding barren landscape. It is called the Golden City or "Sonar Qila" because of its honey colour. After breakfast proceed for a sightseeing tour of Jaisalmer. The Jaisalmer Fort is located in the heart of the city and is known for its miniatures, architecture and bazaars. This fort was built in 1156 by a Bhati Rajput ruler Jaisal, atop the Trikuta hill. About a quarter of the population of Jaisalmer live inside this fort. The fort is regarded as 'The Pride of Jaisalmer'. The 250 feet tall fort is protected by a 30 feet tall wall surrounding it on all sides. This fort comprises 99 bastions, out of which 92 were built between 1633 and 1647. There are numerous wells inside the fort that are a regular source of water for residents. This fort is a perfect fusion of Islamic and Rajput architectural styles. Tourists visiting this fort can see Akshya Pol, Hawa Pol, Suraj Pol and Ganesh Pol, which are the gateways of the fort. Within the fort walls is a complex of seven beautifully carved yellow sandstone Jain Temple. Several of the finely sculpted sandstone buildings built by the wealthy merchants of Jaisalmer are still in good condition. Amongst the well known and most visited ones are Patwon Kin Haveli, Salim Singh ki Haveli and Nathmalji ki Haveli. After the visit to the fort, also see the Gadisar Lake. This stately tank as once the water supply of the city and there are many small temples and shrines around it. After lunch you will proceed to the Sand Dunes for an overnight stay in the tented camp. The dunes are a great attraction with silky, undulating folds of sand.
In the evening proceed for a camel ride and at night enjoy a Rajasthani folk dance around a bonfire. Overnight stay in Sand Dunes (Jaisalmer). (B, L, D)

It was formerly the seat of a princely state of the same name, the capital of the kingdom known as Marwar. The city is a popular tourist destination, featuring many palaces, forts and temples, set in the stark landscape of the Thar desert. Jodhpur is known as the "Sun City" for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys all year. It is also referred to as the "Blue City" due to the blue-painted houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. The old city circles the fort and is bound by a wall with several gates. Rest of the evening is at leisure for independent activities. Overnight in Jodhpur. (B, EL, D)

The Mehrangarh Fort is sprawled across a 125-meter high hill and is the most impressive and formidable fort in the fort-studded Rajasthan. On the wall, adjacent to the Lahapol or "Iron Gate" are 15 handprints, the sati marks of the widows of Maharaja Man Singh who threw themselves upon his funeral pyre in 1843. Inside the fort, which is still run by the Maharaja of Jodhpur, visit its various palaces with their delicate friezes and respective museums, displaying treasures of the royal family. To the left of the Mehrangarh Fort complex is the Jaswant Thada. It is a 19th century royal cenotaph built in commemoration of Maharaja Jaswant Singh II, the 33rd Rathore ruler of Jodhpur. The cenotaph has two more tombs within it. Near to this are the royal crematorium and three other cenotaphs. Jaswant Thada is an example of architectural brilliance. It is a white marble memorial, built out of intricately carved sheets of marble. There is also beautiful marble jali work on the cenotaph and it is the definitive tomb with a view. After the sightseeing return to the hotel for lunch. Rest of the day is at leisure for independent activities.

Our Scope Of Services-
We are travel and holiday organizers only. We inspect and select the services to be provided to you. However, we do not own, operate or control any airline, shipping company, coach or coach company, hotel, transport, restaurant, kitchen caravan or any other facility or provider that is engaged to provide you services during the course of your tour.

Therefore, please carefully note that:

  1. You will need to adhere to the conditions, rules and regulations of each service provider. For instance, you will need to check the baggage rules of the airline to understand what kind of baggage and how much baggage you can carry. You will need to check the hotel rules to check the timings when meal is served, to ensure that you are available at that time. The company is not responsible for the consequences if you breach such rules and regulations;
  2. If you cause any injury or damage affecting the service provider, then you may be liable to the service provider and if the service provider recovers any monies from us for such injury or damages, we shall separately charge you for the same;

We cannot be held responsible / liable for any delay, deficiency, injury, death, loss or damage etc. occasioned due to act or default of such service providers, their employees or agents.

Meals-
Please refer to the itinerary in the brochure / website for details of the meals which would be served to you on the tour. Unlike an airline, we cannot process a special meal, nor can we guarantee a special diet. We do not assure special meals or special timings or extra halts for infants, children, or passengers with diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure or any other condition. We cannot guarantee quantity of the food as may be provided by the service provider. If you have any such special requirements arising from medical conditions or from the needs of your children or otherwise, it would be advisable to travel on a customized tour and coach tours are not recommended.

We, however, reserve the right to change the meal arrangement, where circumstances compel us to do so. At some places a meal allowance may be paid to you to enable you to have a meal of your own choice.

Hotels-
The Company selects hotels for your stay at locations, which give comfort and value for money. For various reasons, such as reducing the overall traveling time on the coach for the following day, the hotels may be chosen away from the city centre.

Modern facilities such as attached toilets with showers / bathtubs are provided. We cannot guarantee the availability of adjoining rooms / interconnecting rooms / non-smoking room / rooms on the same floor etc. and are subject to availability.

If you seek a change in rooming while on a tour, the same will be subject to availability and you will need to pay any additional charges as may be applicable.

Single Accommodation-
In case you book on a single occupancy basis, you will have to pay a single room supplement unless another tour participant is willing to share your room. You shall also be liable to pay the single room supplement if earlier having booked on a shared room basis, you later have to take the room on single occupancy basis since your intended room partner has either dropped out of the tour for any reason or since you and / or your room partner are no longer willing to share a room.

Note that the single room supplement will be charged in all cases where a booking on a shared room basis has to be changed to single room basis including the following:

  • Intended room partner was arranged by you.
  • Intended room partner was arranged by us for you.
  • No room partner was found available for you.

Double Accommodation-
A double room has either a single queen-size bed or two separate beds. If the Client requests for a room with queen-size bed or twin bed, the same would be provided subject to availability.

Triple Accommodation-
Hotels / Houseboats accommodations only allow three people in one room. Triple rooms are usually no larger than twin rooms and the third bed is often a rollaway bed or cot placed in a twin room.

Children Accommodation-
A child travelling for whom 'without a bed' charge has been paid would not be entitled to a separate bed in the hotel. In case 'with bed' charge has been paid for the child and you decide not to avail such facility whilst on the tour, you would not be entitled to any refund. In case you decide to seek an extra bed for the child booked on 'without bed' basis on the tour, this will be provided subject to availability and you shall be bound to pay any additional amount charged by the concerned hotel directly.

Check in and Check out times may vary from city to city. Usually, the check-in time is 12:00 noon and check-out by 11:00 a.m. However, in case the room is required on immediate occupancy / late check out, kindly inform our sales executive to assist on the same at an additional cost.

Adjoining rooms / interconnecting rooms / non-smoking rooms / rooms on the same floor etc, are subject to availability.

Hotel standards vary dramatically throughout India. In larger cities such as Delhi and Mumbai, hotels are fully modernized with excellent facilities, whilst in other cities and towns the hotels are smaller but quite often have good facilities. In the desert cities of Rajasthan, areas of Southern India, small hill towns and recently opened areas, many hotels are small, privately owned properties or converted palaces, retaining much of their original ambience, but the room size, shape and design can vary enormously (even in the same price bracket). Although palace hotels often have simple facilities and service can be slow, we ask for your patience as this is more than compensated for by their atmosphere and charm. Hotels in India continually try to upgrade their services and there can be building constructions and renovation works throughout the year. Travel Kattaa will endeavour to obtain rooms as far away from any construction work as possible but please bear in mind that hotels run on full capacity during peak season and specific rooms can rarely be pre-booked. Even when you travel off the beaten track with Travel Kattaa, you can be sure that your accommodation in game lodges, smaller hotels and tented camps is the best available in their category.

Sometimes the best hotel may be the only hotel, which may be very modest. In these cases we feel that the simplicity of such accommodation is outweighed by the experience of these more remote areas. Accommodation will often be in tents or lodges.

Economy hotels are budget hotels and they may not have any star category classification obtained from the relevant authorities of Government of India. Even 2 star properties approved by the India Tourism, Government of India, can be considered as economy hotels. These hotels may provide very bare basic amenities.

Standard hotels are mainly 3 star category hotels approved by the India Tourism, Government of India. They may also include Heritage hotels, Lodges and Resorts.
Deluxe hotels can be categorized with ratings of 4 star or 5 star approved by the HRACC, India Tourism, Government of India. They may also include Heritage hotels, Lodges and Resorts.

Please Note: 
Heritage hotels are set in old or historic style buildings and are categorized into grand, classic and heritage.
If you would like to stay in any hotels other than those featured in the tour itinerary, or you would like to upgrade the standard of your room, this can be arranged and you will be informed of the difference in price and this would be subject to availability.
Any damage caused to the hotel property / other property by you will have to be paid by you and the Company would not be liable for the same.

Pre / Post Tour / Add On Extension Packages-
Pre / post tour accommodation / add on packages or extensions etc. are available to you at special rates. You must ensure that you request your Travel Agent or your sales officer for the same at the time of booking your tour.

Coach And Seating-
We generally engage air-conditioned / non-air-conditioned luxury coaches / cars, but we are not responsible if the air-conditioning equipment malfunctions for any reason. Normally, the air conditioning will not function during hill drives for coaches and cars.

On group tours, you are not allotted seat numbers as a seat rotation system is followed. You must follow the instructions of the Tour Manager in this regard.

The coach / car drivers are bound by restrictions concerning maximum driving hours per day and per week and the itineraries are planned with regard to the same. It is therefore essential that the itineraries, schedules and timings are strictly adhered to by you so as to ensure that all the services can be duly provided. If you or any of your co-passengers miss any service due to unpunctuality, we shall not be liable to refund any amount. Further, we shall not be liable to refund any amount or pay any compensation for any change in itinerary or for missing any service due to the unpunctuality or actions of your co-passengers or for any delays due to any reasons.

Please note that smoking, consumption of alcoholic beverages and snacks is strictly prohibited on coaches / cars. Please keep the coach / cars clean to avoid discomfort to yourself and other tour participants.

Please take care not to leave behind any property in the coach / car while disembarking. The Company would not be responsible or liable in case of loss of such property under any circumstances.

Porterage-
Please note that porterage is not included in the tour price.

Baggage On Coach And Porterage-
Please note that porterage is not included in the tour price. It is often difficult to get porters to assist as hotels may or may not provide this service and it is therefore advisable to use bags with wheels. Coaches / cars have limited space for luggage and hence we permit only one suitcase and one handbag per person in the coach. The suitcase should be of a size of 158 cms. (width + length + height).

Airlines-
We shall in no circumstances whatsoever be liable to you or any person travelling with you, for loss of baggage by the airline, failure to provide meal of your choice by the airline, denied boarding or down-gradation due to overbooking or any other reason, failure on the part of the airline to accommodate you despite having confirmed tickets, quality or quantity of meals offered by the airlines, flight delay or rescheduling, flight cancellation, changes of flight schedule or routing, change of airline mentioned at the time of booking. In these circumstances, we will not be liable for the injury, loss or inconvenience suffered by you but you will be free to pursue your remedies against the concerned airline.

If you are travelling to a SAARC country, it is absolutely necessary to have your return air seats to India confirmed prior to your departure from India

Baggage On Airline- 
If guests carry more than the permitted luggage weight then, in such case the guest may have to pay extra charges for luggage to the airline directly and the Company shall not be liable in this regard. You are requested to please refer to the baggage rules of the individual airlines as the same gets updated from time to time. Also, we are not liable for any loss or damage to baggage while it is in the custody of the airline.

Please note that every airline has a different set of rules and regulations regarding the weight restrictions, the kind of luggage and the number of baggage and furthermore, airlines keep changing the rules quite frequently. Hence, the guests are requested to please check the updated baggage rules of the individual airlines, with whom the ticket is booked.

We are not liable / responsible, in any manner, if you are unable to carry any baggage or if you have to pay any extra-charges due to restrictions imposed by the airline. You shall be liable to pay all such charges directly to the airline. Also, we are not liable / responsible for any loss or damage to baggage while it is in the custody of the airline.

Airline Date Change Before Departure-
If are you travelling on an air ticket for a group tour issued by Travel kattaa and wish to travel in advance or return at a later date after the tour ends, then you must pay the applicable difference between the group airfare within the package holiday tour cost and the market airfare for the changed sector. The same will be quoted by us to you on your request. Over and above this you will also be required to pay an 'Airline Seat Rebooking and Reservation Fee' of INR. 2,750/- as applicable per person per sector, per change depending on the airline (subject to availability of seats and ticket validity).

Please note that you will not be able to avail of the group transfers and accordingly you will have to make your own way to meet up with the group on arrival and / or to your next destination when your tour ends. We shall not be liable to refund any amount to you in this regard. Terms & Conditions shall apply.

Airline Confirmation And Re-Confirmation-
Though you may receive a confirmed air ticket for a particular sector, airlines often overbook seats, due to which the airline may offload even confirmed passengers and may accommodate them on a subsequent flight. We will not be responsible / liable for any such offloading nor for any consequence of such offloading including delay, inconvenience or loss of tour services. As you are booked on a group fare ticket, please note that seat allotment will be made only when you physically report at the airport check in counter. You are advised to report at the airport check in counter at least 3 to 4 hours prior to the departure time. Seat allocation is a matter of airlines discretion and availability of seats which is not in the control of Travel Kattaa. Hence Travel Kattaa shall not be held responsible if you do not get seats together or do not get your preferred seats.

Please note that in case you are returning on a later date after the tour ends, the responsibility / liability to re-confirm air tickets 72 hours prior to the departure would be solely yours.

You Are Responsible For Your Documents And Possessions-
You will have to take the risk and responsibility of all your baggage, belongings, currency, valuables, documents and personal effects (collectively 'baggage') at all times during the tour, whether during travel on the airline or during your stay in hotel or during your travel in coaches, while on excursions or otherwise.
If you forget to carry or if you lose essential travel documents such as permits, passport, ID, visa, tickets etc., you may be compelled to curtail the tour and you may have to incur extra expenses, for which you alone shall be responsible.

It is advisable that you do not carry valuables on the tour. However, if you carry any valuables, we recommend that you use all available facilities to keep them secure during your tour. In this regard, some hotels provide Safe Deposit Lockers (which may be charged separately). In case of airlines, we recommend that you declare your valuables to the airline at the time of check-in and pay an additional charge, as may be stipulated by the airline, to make the airline responsible for valuables. Without such declaration, airlines can invoke limitation of liability protections provided in international conventions and laws.

If your baggage is lost or misplaced at any time during the course of your tour, it is your responsibility to take all appropriate actions to file complaints with the concerned authorities, including police, airline office etc. In the case of group travel, the Tour Manager is responsible for the whole group of tour participants, he may not be in a position to escort you to lodge a complaint with the authorities, as it could compromise the convenience and time of the group.

Furthermore, Tour Managers / Assistants / Escorts are assisting the tourists throughout the tour and are not responsible for tourists' baggage or any kind of personal belongings. On the entire tour the tourists have to be responsible and carry the baggage on their own.

All cost, charges in respect of the said application for the visa shall be borne by the Client and the non-refundable deposit paid by the client shall be forfeited and no claim whatsoever shall be made for the same.

We would not be responsible for any loss or damage whether direct, incidental or consequential caused due to transmission delays or loss of passport. The documents forwarded by you for visa purpose are sent by us to the concerned Embassy / Consulate by third parties and hence we would not be liable for loss of your documents.
