We had a full day layover at Delhi airport, so we booked this day tour of Delhi. Our driver, Dineshkumar, was waiting with a placard with my name as we exited the airport. The provided directions to meet up with Dineshkumar were perfect! Dinesh took me and my wife on a day long tour in a comfortable a/c car. He first took us to Qutub Minar where a guide, BP (included) joined us. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke good English, but he lacked enthusiasm to show places. It seemed like he only wanted to show 3-4 monuments. On the other hand, Dinesh pointed out places of interest as we drove around the city, including residence of PM Modiji, All India Radio and many others. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to have the best experience. The tour was well worth it and covered Qutub Minar, Lotus temples, India Gate, Raj Ghat, Humayu’s tomb (mini Taj Mahal), and Parlament House,

I had a great tour with Faizy and would highly recommend him as your guide. Especially if you don’t have much time and are overwhelmed with so many things to see. Faizy completely tailormade the tour according to my interests and I felt that he took me to some truly special places that I certainly wouldn’t have gone to by myself. Faizy is kind and knowledgeable but doesn’t bombard you with information. If you have several days to spend, have him design a tour for multiple days. I’m sure it’s worth it!

Saurabh Anand was an excelente guide, a true story and history teller. I’d recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore Delhi. He also made great photos! Highly recommended!

Stanley was a great guide! He explained all the murals we saw and was patient with me the entire time.

Unconventional tour of Delhi and very local experience.
