5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

I was a single woman traveler, it was my first visit to Delhi. This tour was a great introduction to the city's shopping alleys. I got to ride the subway, eat samosas from a food stall as well as eat at a popular local open air restaurant - so, go on this tour hungry. The Sikh Temple was great. The people very friendly. We stopped by the spice market and I purchased spices and tea. I had a really good time and most of all, I feel comfortable enough now to go again to Old Delhi by myself. And I didn't get Delhi Belly.

Our tour and guide were both excellent. The young man that arrive at our hotel to pick us up was very couteous and friendly. He happily guided us through the metro system and pointed out any number of items and was so happy to accompany us to the sites, smells snd sounds of Old Delhi. He stopped at a favorite resturant and we all enjoyed a delicious lunch. I cannot say enough good things about our experience.
