Your driver will pick you up from your hotel or airport in the morning and take you to meet your tour guide. You will head out to visit the tomb of the Mughal emperor, Humayun. The tomb, located in Nizamuddin East, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, and was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. The expected length of the visit is an hour.
After, visit Qutab Minar, a soaring 73 meter tower, and the tallest brick minaret in the world. It was built in 1193 by Qutub-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom, and is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. The expected length of the visit is 45-minutes.
 
Next up is the Lotus Temple (closed on Mondays), the last of seven major Bahai temples, and built in 1986 out of pure white marble. Around the blooming petals are nine pools of water which light up in natural light. The expected length of the visit is an hour.
After the Lotus Temple visit you’ll be taken toward your luxurious lunch in the multi-cuisine, fully air-conditioned restaurant where you can get all the delicious flavors and delicacies of the city (at own expense).
Next, visit Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India, with its courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees. It was begun in 1650 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, and more than 5,000 workers toiled for six years to complete it. The expected length of the visit is 30-minutes.
At the center of New Delhi stands the 42 meter India Gate, an Arc-de-Triomphe-like archway in the middle of a crossroad. It was built as a memorial to the 70,000 India soldiers killed in World War I. The gate was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and completed in 1931. The expected length of the visit is 15-minutes.
After the gate, head to the Red Fort, constructed in 1648 by the 5th Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, and the residence of the emperor for about 200 years, until 1857. The Red Fort’s innovative architectural style, including its garden design, influenced later buildings and gardens in Delhi. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. The expected length of the visit is an hour.
In the evening you will be taken back your hotel, or airport, along with your cherished memories of the Delhi sightseeing tour.

Favourite Tour Of Delhi

I had such a fantastic tour with Manu, I highly recommend this tour to all who want to experience Old Delhi and New Delhi with clean comfortable car and an experienced guide! Throughout the tour, he was personable, friendly, funny, and informative.He took us to a restaurant that was very good and had wide variety of cuisine as well. Out of several tours I took in India, this was truly my favorite. Book this tour!
Overall it was good

Didn’t get to see the Tomb. Guide told us only two UNESCO sites per tour. Tour guide didn’t go in with us to Red Fort. The rickshaw ride was interesting. Guide got out of car early as we were heading towards hotel.
Wonderful and informative overview of this city of 23million people

Our guide, Manu, and driver did a wonderful job of hitting and explaining the highlights of Old New Delhi and then New Delhi. While fast paced, there was adequate time at each major stop to see, learn and ask questions. A very remarkable history with ancient sites. Manu was great. It is a long day, but we'll worth it. One fascinating note for us was the absence of women in old Delhi and our guide explained that the culture and religion dictates that women stay inside their homes. We felt safe and welcome everywhere.

We were very excited about this tour however we were a bit let down. Our tour guide was not very enthusiastic about the tour, city, or the sites - maybe it was because we had such a fantastic tour the day before, but we didnt feel like he was very excited about it. We also were very in the dark the entire tour and had to ask every time we got back into the car where we were going next. We took this tour on a Sunday and the price per person was 60 - which coming into it we thought was reasonable. We knew there would be some tips/entrance fees to pay for, but there were a lot of little extras we weren't prepared for. For example, we had to pay someone to watch our shoes, and for a covering to go into the mosque, even though we were wearing jeans and t-shirts, all very well covered. We then learned that several of the places on the itinerary were closed as the city was getting ready for Independence Day. I understand how we didn't know this - but the tour company should have known this and adjusted the price. We could not enter the Red Fort, Lotus Temple, or get close to the India Gate all because of this. Additionally, after the tour we realized we never even saw Qutab Minar, which was on the itinerary. Lunch was the best part of the tour - Lutyens Cocktail House - go there note this was not included in the price. What really ruined it for us was the driver at the end of the tour. He dropped us off at the airport, and we tipped him, which we thought was a more than reasonable tip for our driver we had also tipped the tour guide separately, which resulted in not a thank you, but a complaint that it was not enough of a tip. I was unfortunately very disappointed in this tour and would not recommend anyone spend more than 30 on this tour. Its not worth it.

Couldn't be better! Our driver met us at the Taj Palace Hotel promptly at the scheduled time. The driver took us to meet our guide, Ankush. It was clear within 5 minutes that Ankush clearly had a grasp of the sites of Delhi and that he was a professional. Our driver was just as pleasant and the air-conditioned vehicle a MUST during Delhi in June! was clean and cold. Ankush showed us the sites in Delhi in a planned and logical fashion. Our tour started at 9am and completed by 3p we skipped lunch. We have traveled all over Europe and had used Viator/Trip Advisor for many many tours. I can honestly say that with Ankush, the all-important backstory for the sites was throughly provided and making the tour feel complete. Anyone can simply point out sites and obvious architecture. Knowing and understanding the backstory for each site requires thorough knowledge of the subject. With Ankush this tour was a joy! Well-recommended!! A
A great day in Delhi!

I had a great day on my tour! I was going on a small tour of Old Delhi the next day and was going to see the Jama Masjid, so we just stayed in New Delhi and saw some of the sites. We did the following: • The Laxminarayan Temple, and my guide Yagayasharma explained some of the Hindu beliefs that we saw represented in the temple • Ugrusen Baoli, a 14th century step well • The India Gate, and we drove by the area near the headquarters of the President and other government branches (but because of traffic and security, we couldn't go past a certain point) • Humayun's Tomb and Isa Khan's Tomb (in the same complex - I LOVED Isa Khan's Tomb), and I had some time to walk around and take photos • The Lotus Temple, a B'hai temple built in the shape of a lotus flower, and we went inside for a few minutes of meditation As with many of these kinds of tours, we stopped at a textile shop, which is kind of part of the business. I bought a couple of t-shirts and ties but politely declined anything else. Don't feel pressured to buy, it's part of the deal, and after a while, the vendors get it. They had some fabulous prices on suits that could be hand-tailored that day, so if you're on the market for a suit, definitely check this place out! We also had a stop for lunch (I ate at a place called Pindi that Yagayasharma suggested, and it was fantastic) before they dropped me off at my hotel around 3:00 PM. With the traffic, the heat, and everything we did, I was ready for a nap! Yagayasharma was very knowledgeable and patient, and he was a great guide. He shared a lot of details about what we were looking at and was very helpful in answering questions. Kishor, the driver, was polite and professional. Altogether, I had a very good experience, and I would recommend the tour!
