  • Old and New Delhi: Full-Day Guided Tour with Transfers

    2. Old and New Delhi: Full-Day Guided Tour with Transfers

    After hotel pick-up, drive through Old Delhi to visit the Jama Masjid - India’s biggest mosque. Then, follow your guide on foot through the city's busy streets while they give you a brief introduction to Old Delhi. Afterwards, take a rickshaw to the Spice Market and experience one of India’s biggest spice markets. Next, drive to Raj Ghat, a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. Travel to Akshardham Temple, a Hindu temple complex displaying traditional Hindu and Indian culture. Walk to the temple's food court and enjoy a traditional Indian lunch. Then, drive to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, one of the most important Sikh places of worship in Delhi. Admire the temple's pool, known as the Sarovar.  See the Agrasen ki Baoli, India Gate and President’s House, then head to Qutub Minar. Admire this UNESCO World Heritage site and world's tallest minar (tower).

    If at all possible try and request my guide Deepak who went above and beyond any and all requests I made. I am also doing a vBlog/travelogue for college credit, and his knowledge on all the sites visited was beyond compare. I felt safe, he safeguarded me against scams, and actually saved me money I know would have been lost after experiencing Delhi alone the next three days. He was a resourceful tool, protector, and educator that spoke perfect English while also being able to relate to others in several other languages. I have never encountered better, this company has a prized employee, and once again I would stress to anyone reading these reviews to request Deepak. I just took a tour of Fort Kochi and found some of the things he said about typical guides to be true. They send you to their gift shops, and locations they have a cut of investment in instead of protecting the interests of the tourist. Deepak did the exact opposite, shielded me from scams, and showed me deals.

What people are saying about Jama Masjid

The tour was excellent Ajay our driver was fantastic. He was kind, funny and helpful making sure we got the most from our trip. Our guide was good sharing historical information with us and taking some great photos. At the end of the tour when our guide left we had some spare time so Ajay even drove us to a local market at our request before we left back for Ireland. He really was fantastic, thanks Ajay! If you are in Delhi I 1000% recommend this tour. You see everything worth seeing and can change the tour to suit yourself and it’s upto you if you go into the monuments or not which is great! Thanks guys! Lots of water, and hand sanitizer in the car too

Great experience with Junaid! Highly recommend this tour, especially for single female travelers. I felt super safe and had a much better experience navigating Old Delhi with Junaid. We had a great time at Jama Masjid and since it was a Sunday the market was mostly closed, but still worth the trip! I was even super lost in the beginning and Junaid came and found me.

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.

Abi was our guide. He was very informative, and a very pleasant guy

The driver and the tour guide Kumar were professional and friendly
