This 2-week tour of Rajasthan blends cultural and heritage experiences, immersion in artisanal communities, connection to nature and animals, and more.
Rajasthan is perhaps the most frequently visited destination in India for its vibrant colors, the Thar desert, and beautiful palaces. However, what really enhances your experience is the storytelling and visits to the village communities that give you an immersive view of the cultural fabric.
Our Rajasthan Cultural Tour is designed to help you leisurely explore not only the main sights, but also the hidden treasures, such as nomadic shepherds and Bishnoi, Raika, and Bhil communities. It is also our endeavor to create employment opportunities for these communities via tourism.
Visit the local artisans in less commercialized cities, villages, and in their homes. If you wish, participate in various art forms such as miniature paintings, bangle making, brass artwork, and marble masonry.
- Live with the community in traditional homestays
- Hands-on experiences with weavers, potters, bangle makers, and block printers
- Taste local cuisine & hands-on cooking
- Village walks and interacting with nomadic communities
- Wildlife and desert life experiences
Expect to see heritage homes, carved Hindu temples, ancient ruins, and more. You will also witness showcases of local music and traditional dances in a private ceremony.
In addition to a culturally immersive experience, we take you out into nature to explore the countryside. You will see lakes, stunning waterfalls, and a site of historic rock painting which pre-historic communities used to communicate with one another.
For the animal lovers, we will spend two days with camel herders understanding their nomadic lives. We’ll also visit a sheep herding community. There’s an optional extension available where you can take a full-day, ethical leopard safari.
Though we offer abundant guided activities, this tour also provides free time for you to leisurely explore on your own.
On request, we can extend this Rajasthan Culture Tour to include visits to Delhi and Agra.
We offer this tour during the best season for it – anytime between September 1st and April 15th each year. Guests choose their desired start date.
