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.

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!

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.

I would highly recommend this option for anyone wanting an easy solution to taking in the sights of Delhi. We were on a limited timeframe and this was just so easy. Our guide and driver were both fantastic. They let us dictate where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. There was no pressure at all. Our guide really went above the call of duty to ensure that we were happy and saw everything we needed to see in the 8hr block we had him for. Definitely don't hesitate to book this tour.....it's worth every rupee. :)

Without this tour, I would not have had a positive experience in Delhi.
The previous day, I went on a day trip to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal... I WISH I had gone through Viatorfor for that tour! But I did not, and had a horrible experience with a terrible tour company that was "commissioned" with every business and service. I was a solo female traveler and felt very unsafe and bullied into buying things and services.
THIS tour company for the Delhi in a Day trip was very legitimate and professional. I felt safe and had an EXCELLENT, knowledgeable guide, Bhupesh. Thank you Viator, YOU were my ONLY good experience in Delhi - I wish I had booked my other India tours through you!

We had an excellent guide and driver for this one-day tour of Delhi. We knew in advance how we wanted to spend the day, and the guide accommodated our wishes. He was knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited and very interesting and pleasant to talk to. Also, having a vehicle at our disposal allowed us to do and see more than I anticipated.

Excellent choice by us even if it is a bit more expensive that other tour opertors in Delhi. Got to see and visit all the things in comfort. Our guide added great value to the experience with his knowledge of all the locations visited. Would recommend

Young guide with not much enthusiasm. We felt like he was just there to fulfill an assignment, and was barely tolerating Americans in his country.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour of Delhi with my guide Avi. Travelling alone as a single female I felt comfortable and safe the whole time. I was able to travel to some places of my choice and also some that Avi had recommended. I'd definitely recommend the Ghandi museum. Thank you Avi!

Good to have a guide if you have never been. Have a list of places your interested in seeing and your guide will take you there and show you the ropes.

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.
