Transport in Ajmer
Auto rickshaw and Tongas
Auto rickshaws are commonly used by those tired of walking. Readily available on the quiet streets of Ajmer, auto rickshaws or tongas (horse-drawn carriages) are a very authentic way of traveling. Tongas are mainly available downtown and on specific, selected routes. Auto rickshaws and cycle rickshaws come in handy along store fronts when you have had a long day of traveling by foot.
Taxi and Car
If you are renting a private vehicle it is encouraged to hire a professional driver as traffic can be tricky. With a tour guide alongside you, you are guaranteed a safe means of travel, as well as a very informed sightseeing excursion. Rates for this can be pricy so it is best to only rent a car if you are staying for at least a week. Be sure to look around to ensure you receive the best deal.
