Wonderful experience! I missed a flight, had an extra day in Delhi, and booked this tour with one hour notice. I got extremely lucky with Raj as an expert tour guide, who knew every detail I asked about and chaperoned me through the busy magic of the city; and with Vishnu as an experienced driver, whose skills in navigating the traffic chaos are remarkable. At the end of the day, I had not only tasted the fascination of Delhi, but I felt like I had made two friends. I hope to come back soon, with more time for an extended experience.

I had a great tour of Old Delhi with Dharmendra (guide) and Naval (driver). Dharmendra was friendly and knowledgeable, and although it was only a half day tour we did lots. Highlights for me were the spice market and all the foods we tried. I definitely recommend this tour if you have limited time and want to make the most of it!

We had an excellent tour of the Taj Mahal. Nadeem is a licensed tour guide who speaks excellent English and Russian and was extremely knowledgeable about its history and culture. We were very impressed with all the details he knew. He also took great photos of us and knew all the great scenic spots. Highly recommend him!

Beautiful tour with lots of interesting information and a very nice guide Akil.He provided so much knowledge with fun and it was a real pleasure to spend the time with him.I would definitely recommend that to anyone and book again.
