Wonderful way to safely see how Chandi Chowk comes alive at night: the lights, colours, mix of people, scents. eateries, shops...The Tour Guide was very informative and professional and did a tremendous job at presenting the old historic Chandi Chowk, and the modern one. Dinner at Karim's was a very interesting experience, good food and safe to eat but keep in mind that this is a very well known modest and typical Indian restaurant with no frills...
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.
My first complaint is that you get charged more then advertised cost on web site, think it should have been sixty for two people but ends up being 155. If you want to see the market and the hustle and bustle this is a safe way to do it. But in general would skip this tour , they don't do good job of explaining area much and is more just walk through crowd to take you to their friends shop and the worse food I had in Delhi resturant. I wanted to try a small mom pop place not anymore!
