Full description
Your full-day tour of India’s capital begins with the historic portion of the city, Old Delhi. After pickup from your hotel, set off towards the Red Fort, which was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who also built the Taj Mahal. Afterwards, you’ll weave through the bustling shopping area of Chandni Chowk by rickshaw, ending up at the Jama Masjid, a 17th-century mosque that is the largest in India. After stopping for an authentic local lunch, you’ll head into New Delhi, visiting the Qutub Minar, the world’s tallest brick minaret, before stopping at the Tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Next it’s off to the India Gate, a memorial to the Indian soldiers who died during World War I, before heading to the Lotus Temple, elegantly designed in the shape of a lotus flower.  To cap things off you’ll drive past the Presidential House and the Parliament Buildings before being driven back to your accommodation.

This was a wonderful experienced. Getting to see the new side of Delhi was super fun. Hearing about the awesome culture and seeing the historic sights was absolutely breathtaking. I love every bit of it old Delhi was a fantastic experience as well. Getting to walk to walks of the local, shop and eat where they do is an experience I think everyone she try visiting India.

Gautam was a great tour guide. He made sure we understood the important information and allowed us to walk around on our own. He made accommodations for my travel partner who really wanted to taste the local beers. He gave great recommendations for food and souvenirs. Naval was a fantastic driver. He held the door for me every time I entered the car. He got us safely to our destinations in very hectic road conditions. I can’t say enough about these two men. I highly suggest this tour, driver, and guide.

Booked a last minute tour for a Sunday and was excellent- ideal to take in some top sights in 1 day and didn’t feel rushed. Tour guide Sunil was great- super knowledgable and answered all my questions to help me understand the history of the monuments, and helped take some great photos. Highlight for me was Humayans Tomb and gardens which was beautiful and peaceful on a sunny day. We did go to a shop which wasn’t planned and I bought some gifts which I was looking for anyway. Driver Pankaj was excellent, car had AC and plenty of bottled water. Would definitely recommend.
