If you really want to do something special while visiting Jaipur this is a must. You need all day in order to get there over back country roads as well as have enough time to interact with the village people. There is a fabulous 2000-year-old...More

I've traveled to several villages in my life, but I found this Village to be very organized! By my experiences, this means it is becoming commercialized. By all means, as of now, this is still a meaningful Village to experience. A few things that I...More

Greetings, Strouthos and others who have been to Rusirani. I'm having trouble understanding the logistics of visiting Rusirani, so would like to ask you a few questions, if I may. We plan on taking a small group of American travelers to Rusirani in November/December. I see that there are some package offerings that start in Jaipur - visit Rusirani by day - then return to Jaipur in the evening. Did you travel that way or did you simply begin your exploration of Rusirani at the Village itself? Is there any chance you stayed at Abhaneri Village Safari Camp? Is one day sufficient to spend at Rusirani or would you suggest more? And was seeing the step wells part of your day at Rusirani? While at Rusirani, were you able to see quite a bit of Village life and get a cultural experience, in addition to having time to shop for some art/craft pieces? I very much appreciate your time in answering these questions.

We are traveling by car from Jaipur to Bharatpur as part of our trip around Rajasthan and had anticipated a visit to the Abhaneri step well along the way. What is the best way to book a tour of Rusirani Village? Can you do an overnight stay, or is it just a day tour?

You can book through email or face,book page. It is a day tour but some families provide homestay.
