Fantastic exhibition of a polished performance by the Guards. The horses were absolutely fabulous, turned out an immaculate display. Not to be missed!

We could not attend the changing of the guard owing to security restrictions before the Republic Day Parade but went to The National Museum in its place. That museum is absolutely wonderful and is close to central New Delhi. We also attended The National Rail Museum as planned in the morning and had a marvellous time there which included a trip in a quaint toy train around the fascinating old railway engines and carriages - many were classic very large steam engines - many beautifully dressed and well behaved school children were on the little train. The rail museum is a must for children to visit! There is also an indoor museum, which is beautifully set up, and also a fascinating souvenir shop with everything a child or a railways buff could ever wish for and purchase. Our guide was wonderful.

Excellent. Not a large crowd. I recommend standing at the back rather than sitting in the allocated chairs.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2017

The National Museum was wonderful--self guided, but the Change of the Guard was cancelled. The Tour Company took us, with our consent, to the Rail Museum--self guided, in compensation for the Change of the Guard that was cancelled. The Rail Museum was so, so...Don't need a Tour company for this Tour, they only service they provided was the transportation. Much cheaper to catch a taxi and pay for the entrance fees at the door.
