Our concierge Asim, contacted us a day ahead to tell us the name of driver and license of car so we (two ladies) felt safe to get in. He outlined the itinerary so we could choose where we wanted to go. The driver had changed, and Asim even updated us in a timely manner. Hari was a careful driver and knew the streets well. Anshuk was our guide and he was so fun to spend the day with. He truly loves sharing the history and the knowledge. He could answer every question, and people at all places know him so we felt very safe in his care. The monuments were fantastic to see, and we enjoyed it. The spice market was amazing!! We're not really shoppers...we did buy some things. The shopping trips were a bit of pressure, it seemed expected we would buy, although it was very tacit. The guide and driver were even willing to accommodate a change in the itinerary to see the things we were most interested in. Overall a great experience, a full day of adventures, sights, sounds, smells, and experiences, The restaurant for lunch was very hygienic but also very touristy. I would've preferred a much less posh place, had I thought to ask for some choices before we were dropped off. Highly recommend, it was all very smoothly operated and fun!
The tour itself, the pace, the use of the day, the lunch venue etc. were all good. The guide was knowledgeable and the driver's main focus was on getting me around safely and timely. A particular call-out was the riksha ride in the narrow streets of Old Delhi, this was really something else and I would highly recommend everyone to consider this. The only downside to this tour, like I experienced on several others, is that the itinerary doesn't meantion the fact that several commercial visits spices, carpet weaving are being incorporated in this tour. As I had no intention to purchase a carpet this was a waste of time and also not the nicest of experiences as the guys were quite pushy. I would suggest letting the guide know when they pick you up at the hotel whether you are interested or not in any of these visits. This to manage both yours and their expectations.
