I had such a great experience on today's tour. The tour guide Gautam and driver Prakash were very flexible and answered all my queries. Gautam had a very good knowledge of all the places we visited and much more, I learned many things about India today. Prakash had a very clean and nice car, good AC, which was a relief after walking in the hot and humid weather. He also drove very well and felt safe even in the hectic Delhi traffic. I totally recommend this tour, thank you very much for the wonderful experience!

I had a great time exploring New and Old Dehli with my guide Gautam Grover & driver Ravi. Not only was I able to explore the stunning sights, but also stroll through the markets in Old Dehli. The guide explained a lot about the monuments as well as the Indian culture and was always happy to answer all questions. The food in the restaurant for lunch was very tasty and of huge portion size. Overall I very much enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend it to everyone else!

Our guide Manu was the best, very knowledgeable about history of India. Our driver Ravi was professional too.

Riding through Delhi traffic was an adventure itself! And the temple itself was breathtaking!

It was a great tour. The guide is attentive and friendly. Totally I recommended it.
