In October Andrée lead one of her Jaipur Elite Tours for a group of eight from Hong Kong.
We enjoyed a guided walk into the back lanes of the Old City to find bangle artisans, gem dealers and lots of bling, visiting the rooftop of a traditional Old City home and ending at a famous saree store for draping lessons!
