Your driver will pick you up from your hotel or airport in the morning and take you to meet your tour guide. You will head out to visit the tomb of the Mughal emperor, Humayun. The tomb, located in Nizamuddin East, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, and was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. The expected length of the visit is an hour.

After, visit Qutab Minar, a soaring 73 meter tower, and the tallest brick minaret in the world. It was built in 1193 by Qutub-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom, and is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. The expected length of the visit is 45-minutes.

 

Next up is the Lotus Temple (closed on Mondays), the last of seven major Bahai temples, and built in 1986 out of pure white marble. Around the blooming petals are nine pools of water which light up in natural light. The expected length of the visit is an hour.

After the Lotus Temple visit you’ll be taken toward your luxurious lunch in the multi-cuisine, fully air-conditioned restaurant where you can get all the delicious flavors and delicacies of the city (at own expense).

Next, visit Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India, with its courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees. It was begun in 1650 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, and more than 5,000 workers toiled for six years to complete it. The expected length of the visit is 30-minutes.

At the center of New Delhi stands the 42 meter India Gate, an Arc-de-Triomphe-like archway in the middle of a crossroad. It was built as a memorial to the 70,000 India soldiers killed in World War I. The gate was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and completed in 1931. The expected length of the visit is 15-minutes.

After the gate, head to the Red Fort, constructed in 1648 by the 5th Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, and the residence of the emperor for about 200 years, until 1857. The Red Fort’s innovative architectural style, including its garden design, influenced later buildings and gardens in Delhi. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. The expected length of the visit is an hour.

In the evening you will be taken back your hotel, or airport, along with your cherished memories of the Delhi sightseeing tour.

We had an 8 hour layover in Delhi and decided at the last minute to do some sightseeing. I booked A Star Tours the day before and was really impressed with the prompt service - they contacted me immediately via whatsapp and arranged to customize the normal 9 hour tour to for into a 5 hour window. Asim was an excellent host throughout - he was very flexible and incredibly professional, even as we were delayed at immigration. We had an excellent tour guide (Manu) who was very knowledgeable and articulate. If we did not have the benefit of his insights we would have missed much of the richness in the history of the sights we visited. I would highly recommend these guys. They managed our time brilliantly and in the end it felt like we'd got the best use out of our short time in Delhi. Thanks to the team at A Star tours.

Excellent trip and fabulous guides. Would not hesitate to recommend. My group included my elderly grandparents and Asim and colleagues were fantastic with them, walking slowly etc. We went on circa 8 trips whilst in India and this was by far the best! Personable and knowledgeable guides who made us Brits feel completely comfortable throughout Old and New Delhi - just book this trip now!

I had such a fantastic tour with Manu, I highly recommend this tour to all who want to experience Old Delhi and New Delhi with clean comfortable car and an experienced guide! Throughout the tour, he was personable, friendly, funny, and informative.He took us to a restaurant that was very good and had wide variety of cuisine as well. Out of several tours I took in India, this was truly my favorite. Book this tour!

Our guide, Manu, and driver did a wonderful job of hitting and explaining the highlights of Old New Delhi and then New Delhi. While fast paced, there was adequate time at each major stop to see, learn and ask questions. A very remarkable history with ancient sites. Manu was great. It is a long day, but we'll worth it. One fascinating note for us was the absence of women in old Delhi and our guide explained that the culture and religion dictates that women stay inside their homes. We felt safe and welcome everywhere.

We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour with Yag as our guide. Yag was born and raised in Delhi, and it shows. He provided insights that we would not have otherwise gotten as outsiders. By the end of the tour, we were friends. Highlights of the tour include Jama Masjid, Qutub Minar, Humayun's Tomb, and the Red Fort. If you are looking for a comprehensive look into Old and New Delhi, this is the tour for you.

Couldn't be better! Our driver met us at the Taj Palace Hotel promptly at the scheduled time. The driver took us to meet our guide, Ankush. It was clear within 5 minutes that Ankush clearly had a grasp of the sites of Delhi and that he was a professional. Our driver was just as pleasant and the air-conditioned vehicle a MUST during Delhi in June! was clean and cold. Ankush showed us the sites in Delhi in a planned and logical fashion. Our tour started at 9am and completed by 3p we skipped lunch. We have traveled all over Europe and had used Viator/Trip Advisor for many many tours. I can honestly say that with Ankush, the all-important backstory for the sites was throughly provided and making the tour feel complete. Anyone can simply point out sites and obvious architecture. Knowing and understanding the backstory for each site requires thorough knowledge of the subject. With Ankush this tour was a joy! Well-recommended!! A

Excellent tour! We found our guide very knowledgeable attentive to what we wanted to see. The tour is very flexible, taking us to see what we wanted to see, in one day we had a great overview of Old and New Delhi and saw some great sights! A highlight was the rickshaw ride through the streets of Old Delhi! Recommended!!

What a great day! My guide, Ankush, and driver, Sudish, were superb! It was nice to have their expert guidance around the city instead of trying to navigate it on my own, and both of them were very professional and easy to talk to. The booking agency was very accommodating as wellI was in Delhi for business and had to cut my tour short as a work obligation popped up. Ankush and Sudish helped me cram in as many sites as possible in just a few hours, and the agency manager even called to ask me if everything was okay with the tour and if I was ending early because of a problem! Highly recommended, and one day I hope to make it back to Delhi for the rest of the city tour.

We enjoyed our tour with tour guide Ankush and driver Lal. This was our last tour in New Delhi and despite most of the monuments being closed on Mondays, we were able to see and experience a lot of different places. Ankush was very knowledeable and you could see his passion for the city. We were taken to the spice market and even a shop to sell local crafts. These were expected, however, we were not overly pressured into buying anything. As two females traveling in a foreign country, we felt safe the entire time. It was also nice that we were able to get picked up from our hotel and then dropped off at the airport to catch our outbound flight.

I don't think there is any other way to explore Delhi if its your first time in India. I was picked up at given time by an excellent driver, Ajay.The whole day was perfect, we never had to wait for him, always friendly and very pleasant. My guide, Ankush, was so knowledgeable and very informative about everything. Always helpful with making photographs and he also gave me some time to explore some sights by myself. It was money well spent! Thank you again!
