This was a very special experience indeed. The traditional Rajastani dishes were amazing. (Ghatta Curry , Daal Bati)!! Monty & Harshita are indeed more than just super hosts. I made friends with the whole family including Monty’s Brother and the 3 friends joined for dinner on that day. They are genuinely passionate about cooking and sharing the culture and experiences . The hospitality, love, care and friendship is just out of the world. And, Monty being an experienced Chef who travelled around the world is a very good Orator who will explain each and everything in detail including the history of the dishes. Such a Wonderful and Welcoming family, you feel at home!! Monty also does food walk (street walk) in which he takes you to all the very old and traditional places to experience the food culture. He also takes you to the weavers/ cloth printing designs etc. He knows in and out of the city and it’s culture & traditions. I would highly recommend all of you to experience the wonderful hospitality and love of this family along with some traditional food.
Our first day in Jaipur our wonderful guide Madan Singh met us promptly in the morning at our hotel, he was dressed in a beautiful colorful vest with a small turban and white jodhpur jeans and looked smashing!!! He was extremely professional and knowledgable and took us to the flower market which was the perfect way to start the day. From there we went to the Amber Fort, at stop to look at jewelry and other sites. Great lunch at the Restaurant which he recommended. Then we went to a hand block printing store where they showed the technique and we actually did a block print ourselves. He took us a Hindu temple on the festival of Shiva and we saw the Princes there which was very exciting. He took us to all the places we wanted to go and was patient and gracious the whole time. In short he made our first time in Jaipur incredibly memorable. I can’t thank him enough or recommend a better guide.
Wonderful cooking class. We made a yummy vegetable curry with the expert guidance of our hosts. So fun! They also have us a warm traditional Indian welcome that set the tone as something special. Monty also went the extra mile and helped us find a guide in Bundi (his hometown) where we were traveling next, and gave me an extra SIM card when I mentioned needing to buy one. Such a class act! 🙂 Would highly recommend.
We were so lucky to have Madan as our guide in Jaipur. Of the guides we were assigned in each city (Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur), Madan was, hands-down, the friendliest and the most jovial, courteous, and vigorous. Both my wife and I consider ourselves bona fide introverts, but Madan sure proved that he has a knack to make anyone comfortable from the get go, for we found ourselves happily yacking away from the moment we first shook hands at our hotel and throughout the tour.
Being intimately associated with the city of Jaipur and the state of Rajasthan, Madan demonstrated a clear aptitude for recounting the area’s rich history and lore, attraction by attraction. While some guides like to breeze from one place of interest to another to wrap things up faster and ahead of schedule and yet some others get too caught up in laying out the exposition (resulting in delays), Madan sure kept a brilliant pace, always availing us enough time to soak in the brilliance and beauty of each attraction while clearly orating the need-to-knows associated with each attraction (peppered here and there with lighthearted jests).
We had such good time with Monty during the food tour. Monty is very friendly give all the explanations and and stories about the food we tried but also about Jaipur history. The tour went smoothly and the food we tried was delicious. I highly recommend booking with Monty.
Whether you are spending a day or more than a day in Jaipur, Madan is the guide you should go to! He’s like the face of Jaipur, he knows where to eat like a local, which attractions should you go to and most importantly, he knows how to take good pictures!
