We had a lovely night out, although the Light and Sound show was a bit disappointing,
However we were taken to a great restuarant for dinner after the show which was worth the ticket price alone.

Very good service, and good night experience of the Red Fort with sound and light. Dinner was good too with a variety of vegetarian and non vegetarian Indian cuisine. Good guide who stayed with us all the time from the hotel and back.

Not only was Ashish a thoughtful and punctual guide, he also made us laugh. We enjoyed seeing the fort and eating a delicious meal without having to worry about details. We loved the opportunity to meet Ashish and speak with him about India and its customs and culture. We highly recommend this tour Only complaint - Ashish should have made the full moon rise earlier in the light show.

We participated in the evening Red fort light show tour. Our experience was wonderful. We were able to experience Old & New Delhi in the evening with the safety pf the tour company. The evening light show was very interesting & provided us with a lot of history & a wonderfull colorful spectacle. Our host, Ashish, was very knowledgeable, polite & competent in his work. We enjoyed his company & his stories very much. The tour was superb! The only thing I can think of that I would have recommended is that we thought that dinner was first - so we would have had a snack first! We are very happy with the restaurant & are looking forward to the delicious food! Thank you!

Great sound show. It told about the history of India. A lot of things I didn't know. Dinner was superb. Great tour guide as well. The only thing I would improve on would be the light show but that is out of the hands of viator.
