What an amazing tour! I cannot recommend this enough. Bobby our driver was the best he had amazing service, always went out his way to keep us happy and always kept positive always laughing and cracking jokes! Bobby also constantly stopped to allow us to try new things we hadn’t tried before which was also very good, we couldn’t have asked for a better driver for the tour. Also always ensured we were comfortable throughout. He recommended such good places for food and had good local tour guides too who helped us with different things like for example getting SIM cards and dealing with different experiences we weren’t normally used to. The company had worked out the tour according to our needs and it all worked perfectly and we seen loads when on this tour it was full days and they ensured we made most of the tour definitely worth the money we paid! If your contemplating booking this, definitely book it you will not regret it we couldn’t have done all that he had done without this tour!

My tour guide was Durgendra Singh and had Saddam Ali as a driver. This was such a phenomenal trip! This was my last day in Delhi and this was so worth it!! even if you have 5-6 hours, you can customize the trip to your liking. Durgendra had a knowledge like an encyclopedia with a ton of contextual insights. They both also had great food and shopping recs! Overall this is a must book if you’re in Delhi.

Saurabh’s tour was very good, and informative. He was able to communicate very clearly and in English for us. It was a very hot day and he made sure we were comfortable at all times. We definitely recommend him as a guide! And will be happy to have a tour with him next time we are in India!

We had a trip with guide Manu and it was an amazing time. He adapted the plan to our needs and we were very glad. We could discover New Delhi. I really recommend ;)

The tour was timely and organized but left us with some flexibility throughout the day.
