I had a fabulous time on the Old Delhi tour with Abhi. We started at the Chandni Chowk for a tea and some history of the area. We stopped in at Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib, a Sikh temple right across the street, and Abhi and I sat down and observed for a bit. We stopped for samosas at Old Famous Jalebi Wala before walking into the streets of the Chandni Chowk market area, and we walked around for a bit, which was so interesting. We went to a Jain temple, and a member of the temple showed me around this GORGEOUS space. We got a fried bread and some chutneys at a busy food place I can't recall the name, but it was clearly extremely popular, and then we took a tuk tuk to the spice market area and checked out one of the vendors nearby. Although it wasn't part of the tour, Abhi very generously got us another autorickshaw, and we went back through the market streets to go to Jama Masjid because I hadn't gotten a chance to visit yet. He showed me around and shared some of the history of the mosque, and it was awesome. Abhi was very patient and knowledgeable, and since I went in the slower season, it was just the two of us. He answered my questions thoughtfully, and it was more like hanging out with a cool friend than anything else. One of the highlights of my trip was sitting and talking with him in Jama Masjid. Abhi is a superb guide, and I loved being able to explore Old Delhi for a great morning.
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.
this was probably the best money I spent in India! Our tour guide Sabyasaghi (Sab) was unbelievable! he was so well respected with everyone that we met. He took us everywhere. he introduced us to the Metro and what to look out for and where to eat. He let us know about the different histories and rituals of India. Take this tour as your first introduction to India. Fingers crossed you get Sab as he is one of a kind!
