Great tour guide, singh was very accommodating and easy going, he went out of his way to take us to places that weren’t on the tour when we had extra time. Great tour too loved the Chhatarpur temple so much to see there!
very good tour but it should start sooner in order to miss the people and hot weather i would have liked it to start around 7:00 am instead of later in the morning it would have made a big difference.
Best day ever, guide was friendly and informative. On time , door to door service, took care of all the entrance issues. Kept people from trying to get you to buy stuff, was very helpful about how to get around town and avoid unsafe places. The sites were breath taking , the lunch was great . Real resturant not some side shop. Four main entries to choose from , soda cost which is not included a little high (still only one fifty in us terms) I just can't give enough praise for the guide and driver , would take any tour with them again. Even some of the others I did not like if these two where running them
A nice succinct tour of some of the more significant historical treasures in Delhi. This is great for someone like me who had limited time. I would recommend something longer if you do have the time. However, the five hours were well-spent, and the guide was great.
Excellent, as I learnt a lot about Delhi through a great guide and a good driver. I'd recommend this one!
