You will be escorted from your hotel in Jodhpur and driven to Umaid Bhawan Palace, which houses the Vintage and Classic Car Collection.

Umaid Bhawan Palace is one of the world's largest private residences. A part of the palace is managed by Taj Hotels. Named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, grandfather of the present owner Gaj Singh, this edifice has 347 rooms and serves as the principal residence of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family.

The Vintage Car collection is housed in the original Palace garage, an attractive setting for such a unique and remarkable collection. The semi-circular garage with its forecourt is housed within a greater courtyard, creating a pleasant hideaway from the bustle of the streets. The garage itself was built at a time when the only cars in town belonged to the Royal Family. There are 22 splendid vehicles, including a seven-seat 1938 Cadillac complete with purdah (veil) system, the beautiful 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom used in the Bond film Octopussy, and the Cadillac convertible that whisked Queen Elizabeth II to the airport in 1961.

After viewing the collection you will enjoy a short city tour in one of the vintage cars.

After your tour ends you will be taken back to your Jodhpur hotel.
