We had been in Delhi for several days but did not feel like we had experienced the “real” Delhi...until this tour! Shrishti was a wonderful guide and took us to places we never would have experienced on our own. We started on the subway, toured a Sikh gurudwara, helped make chapatis at their community kitchen, strolled little alleys and enjoyed the most delicious chai, delectable samosas, and stopped at a sixth generation lunch spot for paratha. We thoroughly enjoyed our half-day with Shrishti and wish it could have been longer.

I enjoyed my morning but it was not what I signed up for at all! There was no small group, just me the Red Fort was closed so saw a variety of other sights and markets no chai or lunch provided transport was Delhi's metro at rush hour.

The tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. He taught me a lot about the sights I was seeing and organised the morning for me to see the most possible.

I was disappointed that the tour did not match anything I had booked but still had an opportunity to see a side of Delhi I hadn't seen previously. In the future I would not book another tour in this way.

Yajnabalkya Chatterjee was absolutely amazing! We had a wonderful morning with him walking around Old Delhi. He was incredibly knowledgable, not only about sites on the tour but Indian culture, food, government, music and everything in between. We wish we could have had him for a longer tour or hung out with him again.
