Designing Your Journey
Work with Indagare to design the perfect itinerary for an immersive journey. Our travel experts know the destination inside and out, and they can make recommendations based on your travel needs and preferences.
3 Days: Essential Jodhpur
One of the great cities of Rajasthan, Jodhpur draws polo players, spiritualists and antiques dealers who flock to the Maharajah’s palace and marvel at the city’s wonders. With a customized itinerary that features guided touring, special-access, and classes, Indagare can help you make the most of your journey. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.
Day One: Historic Jodhpur
Start your sightseeing adventures in Jodhpur with a private visit to the Umaid Bhawan Palace, the Clock Tower Market and the Mehrangarh Fort, which stands 400-feet above the city and encompasses several breathtaking palaces. Indagare’s special after-hours visit includes a curator tour, champagne on the ramparts at sunset, and dinner in the beautiful Chowkelao Garden.
Day Two: Shopping Jodhpur
Jodhpur is a magnet for interior designers. We recommend working with a trusted local guide who knows the best sources and can help with negotiating. Indagare can arrange a tour with an expat expert who will bring you to the best stalls in the Old City Bazaar, which is known for its craft stores for jewelry, lacquer ware, fabrics puppets, and leather products, as well as the warehouses of furniture and antiques.
Day Three: Explore the City
From Jodhpur, you can explore the Bishnoi tribal villages in the countryside, walk through the markets of the walled city, participate in a yoga and meditation workshop, and have a private cooking lesson and dinner with a local family. You can also immerse yourself in Jodhpur’s rich culinary scene by sampling its finest restaurants and tasting such Rajasthani specialties.
Where To Stay
We only feature hotels that we can vouch for first-hand. At many of them, Indagare members receive special amenities, including upgrades, early check-in, breakfast, spa credits and more. Look for the Indagare Plus logo in the reviews.
