Next, walk with your guide through the maze of narrow streets lined with ornately decorated havelis made from yellow sandstone. Salim Singh-Ki-Haveli and Patwon-Ki-Haveli are two of the most renowned mansions, or havelis, which wealthy merchants built when the city was an important stop on the caravan routes from the Middle East. Visit Gadisar Lake before stopping for lunch at a local restaurant.

We had a fabulous tour with Mr Ghanshyam. He was very knowledgeable and had interesting local insights to the city and made the tour very entertaining. His sense of humor and warmth added that extra bit to make the experience exceptional. Going with a local, we were introduced to the little secrets of the city - fantastic makhani, a fabulous silver shop tucked away in a non-descript alley with some of the finest handwork and exquisite pieces of jewellery, a fantastic antique store which was a museum by itself, textiles from a lovely shop inside a massive haveli which we would never have found out walking down the lane .... fabulous walks down narrow lanes opening into squares with no prior indications somewhat like one would find in Europe in cities like Venice, a walk through the narrow lanes inside the fort giving a great view into life in the fort. He also took us to the studio of the last remaining family that does miniature paintings. The gentleman has held over 9 international exhibitions of his works in Australia etc. - worth viewing his works. Thanks to Viator, we got a very intimate view into Jaisalmer and saw places which only locals could help you discover. Very good tour and totally recommended - do ask for Mr. Ghanshyam!

The tour and trip to the dessert was amazing and unforgetable, even with the long walk around the city under the hot blazing sun. The trip to the dessert was unforgetable. Our guide Mr. Ghanshyam Singh was very knowledgeable about the city and region's history. Overall the tour was above expectation
