What people are saying about Udaipur

Our guide Mr Nitin was fantastic! Always friendly and helpful, explain all the details! The restaurant we went to (was indicated by the same) was wonderful, we made sure you had lunch with us and suggested wonderful dishes that we had not yet tasted! After we took a walk around the lake (unfortunately our car had a puncture) Without stress we walked around talking about everything and normal things about a walk! (mentioning that he said we were super nice, because if they were others they were already upset because of the puncture in the car) Then we went to a wonderful store of silks and cashmere (at our request) in a calm and serene place in a house out of the big mess ! Yes, I recommend 5 stars
