Next, drive to Raj Ghat, a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. Travel to Akshardham Temple, a Hindu temple complex displaying traditional Hindu and Indian culture. Walk to the temple's food court and enjoy a traditional Indian lunch. Then, drive to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, one of the most important Sikh places of worship in Delhi.

Admire this UNESCO World Heritage site and world's tallest minar (tower).

    If at all possible try and request my guide Deepak who went above and beyond any and all requests I made. I am also doing a vBlog/travelogue for college credit, and his knowledge on all the sites visited was beyond compare. I felt safe, he safeguarded me against scams, and actually saved me money I know would have been lost after experiencing Delhi alone the next three days. He was a resourceful tool, protector, and educator that spoke perfect English while also being able to relate to others in several other languages. I have never encountered better, this company has a prized employee, and once again I would stress to anyone reading these reviews to request Deepak. I just took a tour of Fort Kochi and found some of the things he said about typical guides to be true. They send you to their gift shops, and locations they have a cut of investment in instead of protecting the interests of the tourist. Deepak did the exact opposite, shielded me from scams, and showed me deals.
