Chandni Chowk is one of Delhi's busiest and oldest marketplaces. Located in the walled city of Old Delhi, which is now central northern modern Delhi, it got its name from the canal which used to run down the middle reflecting the moonlight; ...

I took this tour at a recommendation of a local friend. Turn out to be one of the best tours I have ever done.

My guide, Sabyasachi picked me up at my hotel which happens to be near where he stays. Our tour starts with the subway. I had a great time discussing political and cultural issues in Delhi in the train with him. Sabya is smart, fluent in English and aware of current issues.

In Chandni Chowk we visited a Hindu temple where he explained the various different deities, festivals and practices. We went on to a Gurudwara next, again Sabya was well aware of the practices explaining the customs as we went along. We also managed to see the huge soup kitchen run the Gurudwara and I even tried my hand in making roti! We visited Jama Mosque which was awe inspiring. Being a Muslim, I was not aware that such a magnificent mosque exist in Delhi and is one of the world's biggest! It even housed some of the Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) artifacts. Sabya was able to point out to me the architectural significance of the mosque and its history.

I think one of the best parts of the tour was being able to sample the street food, samosas, rotis and marsala chai. We also have many interactions with the local vendors. I loved going through the narrow streets looking at fabrics, meeting locals, learn about spices and tea. The rickshaw ride through the area was quite the highlight for me. One of the best experiences of my travels.

I wanted to say thanks to Sabya and Tushar who made my India trip so wonderful. Sabya was commendable as a guide, personable, insightful and very respectful to everyone we met. I really value this experience as I know I would not be able to do it on my own. I felt that I learnt so much so thank you for a wonderful time and for sharing your beautiful India with me.

The tour was great! It was just me and another guy, plus the guide, Ashish. Ashish was really friendly, helpful, and extremly knowledgeable about Delhi and Indian history. We went through the narrow streets of Chandni Chowk, to Jama Masjid and to a Sikh temple, and we had an awesome lunch.

The Fort is the highlight of this tour. Take lots of picturs and enjoy the history, scenery, and above all-the quiet. In the Chandni Chowk you will be wishing you were back in the fort. It is a cesspool that is worth seeing for the spectacle. Enjoy the crush of humanity but watch yourself. It would be insane to bring small children on this tour. This tour is for the experience not the shopping. You will get better quality souvenirs at the Airport- honest. The auto rickshaw ride in the spice market is on par with any roller coaster ride- without any of the safety features. A tour of this area is a must since you would be in serious trouble if attempted on your own.

Tuesday I did the Delhi by night tour. I would like to express my disappointment at the tour and the fact that is it not worth the amount of money I paid.

Tour cost 93 dollars 65 approx 6200 rupees approx

1st - communication was bad
After booking the tour at approx 4.30 pm on Monday 21st Feb, I didn't receive email confirmation until Tue 22nd at approx 11.30.
I Didn't know what time I was being picked up, Emailed 3 times had no response, phoned constantly for 1 hr 15 mins and number busy throughout. I did however find a note in my hotel room when I came back about the pick up time but I didn't receive this before going to wait in reception for you guys.
Your emails do not contain any contact number for you guys its only in the voucher you sent, and when you are out and about sight seeing it's quite difficult to obtain wifi, to read this.

2nd - tour details
Driver turned up at 5.45, the tour started at 5.30 and the voucher said I would be picked up prior to start time we arrived in Chandni Chowk at 7pm, rickshaw ride around, had dinner and back in taxi at 8.30pm, back at hotel at 9pm approx.

3rd - cost information
Taxi approx 800 rupees
Rikshaw approx 200 rupees
Dinner approx 400 rupees
Approx total cost 1400 rupees not including 2.45 hrs guide

There is no way this tour is worth 6200 rupees and I'm extremely disappointed and sad I wasted my only night in Delhi with you guys.
