Great tour guide, singh was very accommodating and easy going, he went out of his way to take us to places that weren’t on the tour when we had extra time. Great tour too loved the Chhatarpur temple so much to see there!

Loved our tour guide, Anand! It was our first day in India and we were so lucky to have such a helpful and knowledgable tour guide. He was incredibly knowledgable about the sites we saw and had detailed answers to all our questions. In addition to the sites, he helped answer our questions about Indian government, culture and music. We would definitely recommend a tour with Anand!

Best day ever, guide was friendly and informative. On time , door to door service, took care of all the entrance issues. Kept people from trying to get you to buy stuff, was very helpful about how to get around town and avoid unsafe places. The sites were breath taking , the lunch was great . Real resturant not some side shop. Four main entries to choose from , soda cost which is not included a little high (still only one fifty in us terms) I just can't give enough praise for the guide and driver , would take any tour with them again. Even some of the others I did not like if these two where running them

A nice succinct tour of some of the more significant historical treasures in Delhi. This is great for someone like me who had limited time. I would recommend something longer if you do have the time. However, the five hours were well-spent, and the guide was great.

It was my first time in India. I was surprised that Delhi is such a "green" town with interesting old buildings which you can't find in a travel guide. I liked this Tour very well! The local guide know a lot about the buildings and the historical background! And Mr. Ashish was very helpful in every case! Very good driver! Thank you for the gifts! Conclusion -> Amazing Tour!

I really enjoy the tour! The tour guides were very informal w/ the info. The multiple temple were the best of all. traveling around India is a very good experience for him/and the group. India will never be the same!

very good tour but it should start sooner in order to miss the people and hot weather i would have liked it to start around 7:00 am instead of later in the morning it would have made a big difference.

Most sites were good, but my guide knew nothing about the Mehrauli park. We made only one stop at a mosque where my guide could tell me nothing (except that mosques are important to Muslims...good to know!) and then he admitted he'd never been to Mehrauli before. Bad guide :(
