We have recieved excellent reviews from all the people who have experienced our unique workshops and culture and theme tours in Jaipur . Below is what few of them say about us.
आर्य निवास में आयोजित वर्कशौप में जाना एक आनंद देने वाला अनुभव रहा।राम अवतार जी के साथ पेपर मैंशी से अलग अलग आकार बनाने में बच्चोंं को भी एक नया अनुभव हुआ। जो आजकल के समय मेंबालकों के लिए अनोखा अनुभव था।ऐसा मेरा मानना है ।
I thoroughly enjoyed the Natural soap making workshop. The best thing was working with one's hands with beautiful, textured, rich and fragrant- completely natural ingredients.
The insights about each ingredient that Ramavtar ji shared were amazing.
It was wonderful experience to design a jewellery by using different seeds. At the end of workshop we found that whichever seeds I chosen was representing my personality very well which we rarely found in readymade jewellery.
Thanks to Hotel Arya Niwas for organizing such a wonderful workshops at their space.
