Walk with Kanika was amazing. In total 4 people. Smooth pick-up at hotel. We travelled with the metro. Lot's of explanation about history but also daily live and how to get around. I have never been downtown Old Delhi before but the walk was a good opportunity to get used to the traffic, the bussy streets and the people.

I arrived in Delhi for the first time and was alone for my first couple of days, so I booked this tour to get a feel for the place with someone who lives here. My tour guide was called Deepak and he was great - he arrived at my hotel early and presented me with a travel card for the metro to use, we also used a tuk tuk and manual rickshaw on the trip, and managed to fit a lot in the 3 hours we had together. Old Delhi is amazing, we had some street food together and did everything stated in the description. Deepak was very knowledgable and I felt very safe, he also made sure I got back to my hotel by calling me an uber from the metro station. I highly recommend thus tour!

Our guide picked us up at our hotel and after a train ride to Old Delhi we started our walking tour. Because we had already visited some of the listed sites on the tour, our guide personalized our tour for our needs. He did a wonderful job and we would recommend this walking tour very highly.

I really wanted to experience Old Delhi, but was worried that the sheer chaos of it would detract from my enjoyment and being able to really experience the place so I decided on this tour. Deepak the tour guide arrived promptly at my hotel and we walked to the Metro Station. I loved this as I always think that experiencing the Metro in any new country is an experience, but it can be quite daunting to go alone! Deepak was a lovely guide, very informative and great to talk to. We arrived in Old Delhi, and walked the streets - Deepak was good at pointing out some good photo opportunities along the way and was very patient in waiting for me when I was taking a photo. We got the Mosque - which was interesting for me as it was my first visit to a Mosque. We then walked along a busy walking street which was amazing!! I only wish I could have had time to explore by myself later! We then stopped for a snack which was lovely, before heading to the Sikh Temple and then to the Spice Market on a Rickshaw. We then got back on the Metro. I told Deepak that I wanted to go to Connaught Place to do some shopping, so before leaving me he was very helpful in ensuring I knew how to get back to my hotel on the Metro. I would highly recommend this tour as a solo female traveller, as there was so much to see and do it would have definitely been too much to experience by myself!! If I had to suggest a point of improvement, I would suggest better communication before the start of the tour confirming pick-up time. The night before, I was rather nervous as I had only received an automated email generated confirmation and would have appreciated a WhatsApp message or an email.
