This was a wonderful tour of Old and New Delhi. The guide explained everything well, patiently answered all of my (many) questions and really knew a lot about the historical context. The driver Pradesh drove calmly and carefully, which is always easy on the nerves. I had booked without tickets and food, but overall not much is happening. I will definitely book here again on my next stay.

From the moment I booked the trip to the final drop off everything was well organized. Received confirmations and texts with reminders up until we were dropped off. Ali our guide was amazing and knowledgeable. He got the greatest pictures for us to capture the day. We ended with a delicious breakfast.

This day was just as colorful as India is! Our guide Sanyaj was so pleasant, friedndly, funny and helpful with all of our questions and wishes! My heart is now fuller after this amazing day!!!
