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!
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.
Absolutely fantastic, the guides were on time and very professional and knowledgeable. I will recommend them to anyone who travels to India.
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.
This was an interesting and informative tour. There are a lot of great sights in Delhi (Old and New) and both the guide and driver were excellent. The only problem with this tour and others is that you are taken to shopping areas when you do not want to shop. If I wanted a shopping tour I would have ordered it.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Our guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable and made us feel really welcome. They also didn't try to push us into affiliated shops to buys goods which was a welcome relief. Would highly recommend.
Highly recommended. Guide was excellent. Had a great day with him..
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.
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.
Informative and interesting day, with sightseeing and interesting experiences, including a cycle rickshaw and sampling samosas in the street market.
Wonderful to see all the landmarks both historical and current with a concise background.
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.
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.
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.
