This is the best way to see New Delhi. We saw more of the city in one day than we expected. We stopped at recommended locations and enjoyed every minute. Each bus had someone explaining the stops and made sure we did not miss anything as well as providing an escape from the heat and hustle and bustle of Delhi life.
It is goog but schedules barely let you see in one day the highlights. Skim the unnecessary or book 2 or more days
Traffic in the city is crazy. But it is an easy way to travel for tourists. If you struggle with accents this is not the tour for you as the commentary is live!!
This is not a bad thing if you can make bus schedule work , it's a cheap way to get key sites . Hard to find main office to get tickets, we had to call like three times to narrow down where it was , info on sites was weak but people nice and buses on time. But having hired cars since first day, would say spend money and do that. Guides will push for you to visit their friends shops, but strangers will bug you with same stuff while you are waiting for bus!
This tour is very useful and safe to travel in a very complex city like Delhi. It is good and safe for lonely female travelers. Time between each bus is a bit long and commentary is not particularly outstanding but overall it is a good option for tourists.
The busses ran on time and were clean. Helpful staff and the sites exceeded expectations. The tour narrators had varying levels of accent, one was hard to understand. The "all inclusive" ticket (incl all entrance fees) doesn't work. I had to pay all site fees and request cash refund at end of day.
Usual hop on hop off bus except no two storey bus here. Cheap as chip and went to most places of interest.
The Hop on Hop off itself was great and worth the money! But DO NOT BUY THE GPS device. We had to argue with the people at the counter just to get it even though we already paid. They didn't have the devices ready so we had to wait while they looked for them and figured out how to use them. We never ended up using them and it was a waste of money!
Easy to get our tickets for the bus which was clean. Great for getting an idea of the layout of New Delhi! The only issue is there's so much traffic in Delhi between cars/trucks, autorickshaws, bicycles, motorcycles, and pedestrians.
Tour was good, but the markup on the tour was outrageous. I appreciate some markup would be required but was charged almost twice the price and would have been better off booking directly with the operator when I did the tour.
Note from Viator: Thank you very much for your feedback. To clarify, it is a frequent occurrence and custom, that there are very different rates for Indian nationals and non-Indians when entering tourist sites. In this case, the prices paid for via Viator were the same as offered by the ticket office itself in the case of non-Indian nationals.
There were supposed to be 2 routes but there was only a combined route which is very long. Buses were late. No maps were available at the checkin counter as they were out. Might be better off hiring a rickshaw for the day to take you around.
