Riyaz was an amazing guide! He gave a full tour and even took us unseen places. I’ve lived in Dehi for more than 20 years but that was my best Chandni Chowk experience. Went all the way to the top of the Masjid tower for the first time. Because Riyaz lives there, he shares personal stories of what it is to live in Delhi-6. He gave the entire tour in perfect English for my wife, who doesn’t speak any Hindi.

The guide - jimmy was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the monuments and general Delhi life. The driver was courteous and safe. Overall had a very good experience and would thoroughly recommend this trip.

Suraj was an excellent guide. Without him, it would have been impossible to experience Old Delhi in its true glory. Great shopping and Street food was added into the mix to make it a truly memorable experience.

Although we booked a late start at 11 am, the guide managed to make the most of our time, and still made it to the most famous points of attraction of the city. Next time we do the rest. Depart before 9 am.

Riyaz is the best guide we have ever met he showed us everything and he is very knowledgeable. Totally recommend
