Absolutely wonderful time I definitely recommend trip around Temples for anyone to get know New Delhi from different side. Rariyadan, who was my guide was amazing very knowledgeable and perfect English! He scheduled trip the way we avoided long lines and waiting. With crazy driving in Delhi and distance between sites I would never be able to do it by myself. Rocky the driver beat the traffic, which helped a lot :- With them both I felt very safe and well looked after, what was crucial for me.
