One of the most convenient, and enjoyable ways to have a quick glance into Delhi. The places we picked were amazing and our guide was fabulous unfortunately I lost the piece of paper with his name on it. He was full of so much knowledge, and had a real passion for the places he showed us. The car accommodation was very well looked after, the driver was fabulous, and we have so many memories from this trip. Highly recommend.

This tour was quite misleading - as some of the listed choices were not suitable for day visits eg Hauzkaas is a clubbing district, with nothing to see in the day. This is a Viator complaint nothing to do with local provider. The guide did help us with that and suggested alternatives... and in fact said we could tailor the day to anywhere we like - most of which were great. However one of those alternatives was a trip to his friend selling Kashmir carpets for several thousand pounds. We were led into a room under the ruse of visiting 'an interesting higher quality market' - only to find it was a timeshare style lock-in sales pitch. Very annoying and and time wasting and we were not impressed.
Another Viator issue - grossly overpriced. Most of the options listed here were free entry or minimal charge - and the travel cost is nothing in Delhi - so again massively inflated rip off for tourists, to line Viator's already heavy pockets.

Driver and guide did a great job. Took us to a few extra places so that we could at least take some pictures of the outside.

This is an excellent way to spend a day in Delhi, since you get to choose what you want to see. We picked six monuments and enjoyed every one. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful in addition, because trying to park in Delhi is almost impossible, there is a driver. You are dropped off for lunch at a restaurant where it seems like every other tourist in the city is dropped off--nothing exceptional, but a safe choice. Because the traffic in Delhi is so bad, moving around to see six different attractions makes this a full day adventure.

The tour looked very interesting and the fact that you could custom made it was really good! However, we didn't like the fact that our guide Mr. Harry excluded places we have chosen without even asking us or at least replacing with something else. Be also aware that if they take you to a shop they get commission on the things you buy this we were informed later, after he took us a big shop whereas we just wanted to go to Hauz khans village and stroll around to different shops.

Very flexible in organizing the tour and allowing you to customize the sites to visit. Very interesting sites with a lot of historical information.
