My tour guide was marvelous and you will likely feel the same about this tour and guide. Travel is
safer and more convenient, when taken around by a polite, professional and local guide. Make it easy
on yourself and book this tour.
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.
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!
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.
Highly recommended tour for first time in Delhi. It was real private tour, they picked me up in time from my hotel. My tour guide was Sabyasachi Blessed, he's a very good guide, knows and tells a lot about the history of the place, so you get an impression of the city. The tour was what I was looking forward, to see old and new Delhi in one day. What I missed a bit, that we spent too short time at the spice market, there I would have stayed longer, not only to visit one shop and from the tour I also missed the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib (however the Ganj Sahib Gurdwara we visited)
Not a bad trip. There are a few interesting things to see in New and Old Dehli.
Wonderful to see all the landmarks both historical and current with a concise background.
Informative and interesting day, with sightseeing and interesting experiences, including a cycle rickshaw and sampling samosas in the street market.
Car was poor and we had to ask for seat belts that were tooked in the boot. These were very dirty. The guide though Mr Ali was magnificant and not only had good knowledge but took notice of our needs at all times.
A definite must to see the local India, not the tourist made visits. Without a guide, we would never have known about the local streets or shops. Great tour.
Highly recommended. Guide was excellent. Had a great day with him..
