Usual price for a guide for 1 hour

We will visit, Amber Fort, City Palace, Janta Mantar in 2 weeks. We plan to get a guide in each place. What is the usual rate for a guide for an hour? We will have a car+driver.

Thanks in advance.

It is better to hire one guide services for the above mentioned monuments and the official fee would be INR 750/-

There is a very good audio-guide at Amer Fort, in case you want to do it that way. I've tried it and I liked the explanations. If you get a good guide it is better than the audio-guide. But good ones are not easy to get. Speak to the operator who is organising your car and driver and ask them to arrange guides.

ma advantage of taking local guide for whole day :

Guide gives broad information about the city. People and culture ..

and monument guide is specialist for monument.

there are monuments guides at all three well known place . Amer fort, City palace and Jantar mantar.

These guides are depends on walk in tourist and these guides for domestic and international. Tourist that can not to be a good decision. If you donot get a good one among these. some may speak Hindi or other Indian language guides. Please make sure your monument guide speak English.. Hiring through travel agents is a better ideas .or you can Google for local guides.

there are many guides at Jantar mantar and they are specialist of Tnis place . The rates for guides are on boards acoordiing to time .

id you don't want to take a local guide for day . Take audio guide for Amber and take monument guide for Jantar-Mantar

All 3 attractions have audio guides.The narrators speak english clearly and give good descriptions of what you are seeing.AN ADDED BONUS OF THE AUDIO GUIDE IS THAT YOU CAN RAISE THE VOLUME AND BLOCK OUT THE NOISE OF THE OTHER GUIDES WHO ARE SPEAKING AND YOU GO AT YOUR OWN PACE.The guides i came across did not speak english clearly,so a travel agency would have the better ones?
