Good experience. Met our detailed rquirements. Excellent guide.
thanks to the great guide,who knew a lot about the history and politics in India, the tour was very interesting and helped us to get to see many places within one day. It is recommended for people who are for the first time in Delhi and have got just a short time for visit.
Our tour guide - Ashish - was excellent.
HOWEVER, the organization of the tour was a bad experience. The driver picked us up from Imperial at 8 am - and drove with us for more than 1 hour aimlessly. He should have waited for our tour guide at hotel - who was 10 min late. Is local office chaotic?

This was a good tour. The guide was on time and flexible but could have been more informative.
I saw all the major highlights, and the guide was friendly and knowledgable. However, I was told (due to traffic in Delhi) that we would not be able to see everything on the itinerary and that we should choose what to miss out (we chose the markets). The tour should not be sold 'as is' if all the items cannot be covered. Delhi traffic is always a problem.
The historical sights were great but our guide was not very good, she was young and did not have much knowledge about the historical sights, you need better guides.
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.
Tour itenerary was good as far as seeing the highlights. Tour was in the hot part of the year and would have preferred to have seen it start earlier that 9am to avoid more of the heat. There are things in Delhi to see that do not require an admission so they could have been visited during early hours.
Guide was knowledgable but seemed more focused on getting done than what we would have expected. The heat played a part. The tour ended up 6 hours instead of the 8 as advertized.
What we did see was indeed interesting and would like to get back to see the balance.
It is sorry to note that quality of the "guide" is not up to the any standard. He was not able to explain properly. The vehile used for the all journey is bad.
Tour started 1,5 hours late and lasted 3 hours (instead of promised approx. 5 hours) and consisted of 3 places of visit: Gandhi museum, Gandhi funeral place, and Gandhi house all of which can be entered free of charge in any case. It was cold on an open tuck-tuck in January morning in Delhi, and very uncomfortable with three people sitting in the back. Vianor promised an "airconditioned" vehicle, it sure was. I tried to cover my ears for not getting cold. The guide took us to these places and we did ourselves all the readings on the posters. Definately, not worth the money. Do it independently .
If our group could give this a zero we would. The guide, though pleasant, knew nothing more than the briefest amount in a guidebook--really the worst guiding information I have every experienced! Also, the guide's Indian accent was so strong it made understanding very difficult (and my family is Indian, so I am used to hearing accents . . .) Raj Ghat was closed, as the Japanese PM was visiting the next day, but the guide could not offer an alternative site to visit. When we asked to return to a garden we had passed on our way to Raj Ghat, he and the driver got lost, which was hard to believe, and we landed up driving to India Gate for a brief visit. This tour operation does not have their own cars and drivers and hires those. The cars were not clean and drivers were poor (and I say this with knowledge as we had a car and driver for most of our stay in Delhi, who drove the same kind of vehicle, but clean and knew how to get to places. The guide and cars also arrived 30 min late and the first car had problems and they had to bring another for part of our group while we waited along the side of the road.
AVOID this tour group and AVOID this tour!! It is a total disaster. There were 8 in our group and we wasted our money.
