What people are saying about New Delhi

A very incredible experience, our guide was very kind, he answered all our questions, he took us by subway, then by bicycle taxi through all the streets and by tuck tuck! The food was very good, we asked that it not be too spicy and he did everything possible to make it a unique experience by being able to see and live the day-to-day life of the local people, and his meals were recommended by our guide, sourav. We recommend it 100%

Shikha was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable. The ride to her home was further from our hotel than we anticipated, but worth every minute in the taxi. We learned a lot about spices, cooking, tempering, and food culture in India, and she sent us home with spices for our own kitchens. Highly recommend.

Very personalized and adventurous. Knowledgeable tour guide and excellent drivers. It is a lot of fun and full of exciting sites to see. Trustworthy company and employees. I would recommend. I am a solo female traveler and I felt safe and never had any problems. My tour guide was a gem.

It was a wonderful opportunity to get to know Old Delhi. We had a very competent guide and a lot of experiences, especially at the spice market and with Indian street food. The rickshaw tour was very adventurous, but also exciting and fun. Conclusion: highly recommended!

Excellent tour, very nice and informative both about the food and old delhi! Note that they have switched t-shirt colors and the guide is wearing a black t-shirt and not blue as stated in the meeting spot.
