Yesterday we left for this tour to discover the different religious beliefs of India and there are so many ... I entered this day tour while organizing the trip almost at random, and it is one of the best tours of the whole trip. Our guide Sandeep was able to fascinate us with his tales, his kindness and his way of always courteous and undressed fare.We visited a Jain temple, a Sikh temple, an Hindu temple, a mosque and a cathedral in Delhi to see all the cults (some of these I didn't know at all) and we were really in love with the Sickh temple where there is a huge kitchen where volunteers even from different religions prepare food for everyone ... and a large hall where people can eat a meal hot We too thanks to Sandeep stopped for a while to prepare some bread. It is the place where we tasted a wonderful and original Energy. We also shared a wonderful meal with Sandeep who stayed there

We had a great time zipping around on the bike tour with Tenzin and although there wasn't a lot of major sights he made it very interesting. He also fed us very well. He had lots of info about the past and present and we very much enjoyed our tour. He was also very careful of us cycling around the sometime busy streets.

I had a great morning cycling through South Delhi with Tenzin. He is an encyclopaedia on Indian history and culture. I was also treated to some very tasty snacks. A really enjoyable few hours out. Highly recommended.
