Traffic in the city is crazy. But it is an easy way to travel for tourists. If you struggle with accents this is not the tour for you as the commentary is live!!
This is not a bad thing if you can make bus schedule work , it's a cheap way to get key sites . Hard to find main office to get tickets, we had to call like three times to narrow down where it was , info on sites was weak but people nice and buses on time. But having hired cars since first day, would say spend money and do that. Guides will push for you to visit their friends shops, but strangers will bug you with same stuff while you are waiting for bus!
This tour is very useful and safe to travel in a very complex city like Delhi. It is good and safe for lonely female travelers. Time between each bus is a bit long and commentary is not particularly outstanding but overall it is a good option for tourists.
The busses ran on time and were clean. Helpful staff and the sites exceeded expectations. The tour narrators had varying levels of accent, one was hard to understand. The "all inclusive" ticket (incl all entrance fees) doesn't work. I had to pay all site fees and request cash refund at end of day.
Tour was good, but the markup on the tour was outrageous. I appreciate some markup would be required but was charged almost twice the price and would have been better off booking directly with the operator when I did the tour.
Note from Viator: Thank you very much for your feedback. To clarify, it is a frequent occurrence and custom, that there are very different rates for Indian nationals and non-Indians when entering tourist sites. In this case, the prices paid for via Viator were the same as offered by the ticket office itself in the case of non-Indian nationals.
The tour guide wasn't a licensed tour guide and so could not go into the sites with me and show me around. He had to stay outside, and gave me just a few minutes of an overview before I went in. So it was very disappointing and I thought a misdescription of what is being offered. Also, the guide couldn't speak English all that well, and couldn't really help with determining what sites were close together to avoid lengthy driving times. I ended up hiring a licensed tour guide and just used the services of the driver as I had 3 days of private tours.
Tour guide only really spoke when asked a question and didn't go out of his way to comment on any sights. He was okay at best. Tour is way overpriced, wait until you're in Delhi and have the same tour for half the cost.
