I signed up for the trip late at night the day before and turned out to be the only person on the trip! Jitu was an excellent guide who spoke good English, did the proper introductions, and provided good information on the places that we visited. He also had ready answers to my various questions about Delhi and India. The trip started at Rajiv Chowd metro station and we took a subway to old Delhi, which turned out to be the only metro ride I had taken during my stay in Delhi. At old Delhi, we took a rickshaw which again turned out to be the only chance that I had during my stay to ride in such a mode of transportation. The ride was bumpy, which was to be expected, but also provided a good window to savoring the sights and sounds of the old city. The rest of the visit was conducted by foot, and as Jitu rightly pointed out, one has to possess strong legs and nimble reflexes in order to cross the streets in the old city, due to the hoards of humanity and the massive chaotic traffic! Cling on tightly to your bags and personal belongings! The spice market was colorful and fascinating, and great for pictures if you are into photography. The Sikh temple was sombre yet interesting, and made me want to read up more about the history of Sikhism. The trip ended with a metro ride back to Rajiv Chowd metro station. Overall a highly recommended trip if you have a few hours to spare in Delhi!
Such a friendly and uplifting guide! The tour included all the promised features and much more! A safe way to explore the Bazaar in depth and enjoy safe street food. :-
We had a wonderful time exploring Old Delhi with our guide, Prideep. He took the time to make sure we were engaged and answered all our (sometimes) random questions. Walking through the various streets and alleyways was impressive but easily managed to cover the various markets within Chandi Chowk. This was my first time to use the Delhi metro system and it was easy!
Excellent tour - great experience especially the visit to the Sikh temple. Pradeep our tour guide was excellent first class.
