English: We booked the tour on very short notice since we won a day off in Delhi by coincidence. Although it was very late to book, all went absolutely perfect. The Company was in immediate Contact, did all bookings for the monument fees and the driver arrived soon and his drivimg was supersafe and very, very friendly. The guide we had was very motivated and took very good care of us. To make a long story short: Thumbs up! Safe Honest Knowledgeable Motivated Next time im Delhi, we use the same Company for going to TajMahal. Anytime again! Thank you!

What a fantastic day! We were very pleased to have a female guide. Indu was very knowledgeable and kind and shared some brilliant moments with us. She was very flexible and allowed us time on our own to walk around the sites after giving us the amazing history. Would recommend this tour with Indu! Also recommend the early start as we were at most sights before the crowds. The rickshaw was a highlight! Sanjeev our driver was also excellent, friendly and patient.

We were fortunate to be able to go on a Sunday, with lighter traffic and balmy weather. What I liked most about the experience was the flexibility shown by “Get your guide”, but even more so the flexibility shown by our guide, Sunil Kaneriya. Not only is he knowledgeable, but he gave us options that were off the beaten track and turned out to be really interesting. Our driver, Ali, was also one of the best.

Our Guide was KIRPAL. He is a very kind and polite , intelligent person. He knows everything about Delhi , history, places , etc. We had a great day and great lunch. Our Piolet at the car was PRAKASH. He is polite too, he used to open the car door for us all the time.

We had a great tour, everything was nicely planned. Our guides provided us with interesting insights and the drivers were also very helpful and reliable. Would definitely recommend this tour!
