We had a wonderful experience on our Delhi tour. Our guide, Ashish, was able to share the history about India overall and each site specifically. He was lots of fun, spoke excellent English, and engaged in very informative discussions throughout the day. He knew a great place for us to have lunch - the best Indian food we've ever had. Our driver was also wonderful and navigated the complexities of Delhi traffic with great expertise. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience.
Very informative and a great way to see all the 'must see' aspects of Delhi in an organised fashion without an overload. There was just enough places to see without feeling it was too long and the guide was excellent.
The tour was great! It was just me and another guy, plus the guide, Ashish. Ashish was really friendly, helpful, and extremly knowledgeable about Delhi and Indian history. We went through the narrow streets of Chandni Chowk, to Jama Masjid and to a Sikh temple, and we had an awesome lunch.
This was one of the best tours I've ever had- beautiful city! The tour guide named Ashish was passionate about the city and so extremely friendly, informative, and open to all questions. My family and I were able to learn not only about delhi's history but India's as well! Had the best experience!
Excellent guide, friendly and very informative. I really enjoyed this tour and learnt so much more about Gandhi who is truly an inspiration
An excellent experience. The tour guide Audesh C. Mishra was a great guy who went out of his way to make our trip special and memorable, and even longer than the schedule as we were taking our time to see and indulge in the experience. He was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended on every level.
A great way to get a feel for Delhi without getting lost! Travel by train and tuk tuk gave me confidence to do it again by myself. Temples and Chandi Chowk were fascinating and the guide was knowledgable and helpful
I bought the tour for my parents! They enjoyed it thoroughly! The tour guide was very helpful! The tour into old Delhi was very nice! I would recommend it!
Wonderful tour! My guide was very sharp, easy to understand, and hilarious. We had a really fun day and he was super flexible in seeing everything I wanted and suggesting some extra stop. Perfect tour!
We had a great time!!!!
I am so glad I booked this Private Custom Tour: Delhi in One Day! Our knowledgeable, energetic, fun and articulate guide Avdesh ("Avi") was wonderful! He met us at the hotel lobby on time and together we toured many of Delhi's key attractions. I simply gave him a list of what we wanted to see (Qutab Minar, Safdarjung's Tomb, Lodi Gardens, Humayun's Tomb, Purana Qila, Jama Masjid, Red Fort, and Chandi Chowk) and he was genuinely happy to show us around. If we hadn't already prepared a list, he would have made suggestions in that first meeting to establish an itinerary; he was organized and professional. We set the pace and could be as quick or as slow as we chose for each location. He thoroughly explained each site and was patient as I gave my camera a work-out. Avi also did a great job of watching over us by ensuring we paid the correct entry fees where appropriate and that we weren't scammed or bothered anywhere along the way. One of the best parts was that at my request he even helped us navigate the North India Railway Station to find the international tourist office (2nd floor) so we could buy 1st class tickets to Agra the following day. I wouldn't have had those tickets without Avi's help, translation skills, and ability to guide us clear of people at the station who intentionally misdirect tourists. The driver was great also, waiting for us at each site, getting us safely and quickly through traffic, and stopping on a dime or pulling u-turns when I had to get a photo of something unexpected. I've used Viator in Paris, Moscow, and now New Delhi and have never been disappointed.
A most worthwhile trip - especially if you have a limited time in Delhi. The highlight for me was wandering the markets of Old Delhi and experiencing the sights, sounds and smells. I was not prepared for the amount of walking involved and would highly recommend very good walking shoes. The guide was knowledgable, pleasant and very attentive.
Absolutely fantastic, the guides were on time and very professional and knowledgeable. I will recommend them to anyone who travels to India.
This is a great tour. I recommend it if you either have little time or are planning to see Delhi for a few days or more. The tour gave my Wife and I a great outline and overall understanding of the city and it's culture.
The Guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and approachable. We asked a few curly questions and he was honest in his responses.
The tour allowed us to make note of places where we could tour on our own later on, and equipped us with a better understanding of how to 'survive in Delhi'.
Note on dress: My wife advises other women to dress not worrying about what you look like but about covering yourself up. No exposed chests or anything below the knees. The men/boys can't stop staring.
Note on Tips: Most hospitality est' will charge a service charge, if they don't, tipping is about 5-10% depending on service provided. Like some other countries, many workers rely on tips as the source of income. We were told that many of the budget hotel/restaurants have workers who work only for tips and don't get paid a base wage.
Note on trading days: Many of the monuments/sites have days where they are closed. Check first before going to those places.
Don't expect much from the transport car. It is only a simple old bomb, but part of the experience. Traffic in Delhi is chaos, so recommend you have a bottle of water with you.
Overall, great trip and worth doing.
We enjoyed our Gandhi Tour very much! The sites were very interesting and our tour guide, Indira, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We wanted to spend the morning learning as much about Gandhi and his work as possible and we were very pleased with our tour. Highly recommend! Jim G.
