Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 95 reviews

The tour was taken on Sunday, which has pros (light traffic, you can quickly get from one place to another) and cons (some places are closed on Sunday or queues way too long). Overall works better on Sundays as on other days you may only be able to see 2-3 places (if that much!) due to time lost in traffic jams. Sonu is a seasoned guide who appeared exactly on time with Lalit (driver) and from the very beginning of the tour was engaging, informative and helpful in every respect. He will happily provide the info on India’s culture, religions, language and dialects (he will teach you few words in Hindu) and political system, as well as history behind many landmarks and sites you will visit.

Last minute saviour! Ordered few hours before the departure and got the most out of Delhi! The driver and the car were perfectly presented, drove safe and was very attentive. The guide had a vast knowledge about the sights and adjusted to my need of shorter (quicker tour) with extra wishes for market and some other places I asked to visit. Not only the knowledge but and kindness of the guide was a pleasure surprise, as he paid for my stuff like entrance and food until I had an opportunity to withdraw money. The manager was very attentive too and managed everything like should be. Highly suggested tour! Sadly didn’t have time for day trip to Agra. Peter (Solo traveler)/(conference trip)

Gautam Grover was an excellent guide who went out of his way to make my trip as comfortable and informative as possible. My driver was also very prompt and thoughtful. The organisation was very smooth, despite me only booking it the day before and I saw all of the main attractions in Delhi.

Ankur from keeper landwey was a great guide, entertaining and made the Taj Mahal tour very enjoyable. As a solo woman traveler, I felt safe and comfortable throughout

The experience was one not to forget, was a sunny and hot but we stilled enjoyed and our guide was a very kind one
