Full description
Your full-day tour of India’s capital begins with the historic portion of the city, Old Delhi. After pickup from your hotel, set off towards the Red Fort, which was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who also built the Taj Mahal. Afterwards, you’ll weave through the bustling shopping area of Chandni Chowk by rickshaw, ending up at the Jama Masjid, a 17th-century mosque that is the largest in India. After stopping for an authentic local lunch, you’ll head into New Delhi, visiting the Qutub Minar, the world’s tallest brick minaret, before stopping at the Tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Next it’s off to the India Gate, a memorial to the Indian soldiers who died during World War I, before heading to the Lotus Temple, elegantly designed in the shape of a lotus flower.  To cap things off you’ll drive past the Presidential House and the Parliament Buildings before being driven back to your accommodation.

Although we booked the tour at 6 am in the morning, Delight Tour organized everything before we arrived at 10am at the airport. With limited time, we had a comprehensive tour with Old and New Delhi and a great overview with the major highlights. Thanks for the organization and the tour guide and driver that worked out nicely.

Gautam and Mehar were excellent guides; and I enjoyed my tour around old and New Delhi with them. Definitely recommend getting a driver if it’s your first time in Delhi. The car was clean and comfy, and it was nice to be able to walk around each of the areas with someone local (especially Chandi Chowk). The guide and driver were knowledgeable and friendly people, and they were flexible when I asked to also see Lodi Gardens (which was not in the set itinerary). We finished 2 hours early because I started at 7:30am so we avoided the traffic and the itinerary did not take as long. So if you take an early tour, you should feel free to stay longer at the sites!

Amazing trip to Delhi - especially the riksha ride in Old Delhi was a breathtaking experience. Our guide Asam was super friendly, helpful, shared lots of information on the history of Delhi and India and planned the tour individually for us. Would definitely recommend the tour if visiting Delhi! Thanks Asam, for making this day so memorable and special!
