Amazing, absolutely a wonderful experience.

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.

Rishi Singh, our tour guide was excellent and exactly what we wanted!

Our Delhi tour was excellent thanks to Rishi Singh, our tour guide. He was prompt and his English was easy to understand. He was well educated on the history, culture and religions of India and obviously enjoyed sharing with us. He was self-confident while being flexible and accommodating of our wishes. Rishi knows how to relate to tourists and was never condescending or pushy. Our activities flowed in a steady pace and we never felt rushed. He respected our desires and didn't force us to go shopping in the markets. We felt safe and relaxed throughout the day. It was a wonderful tour that we will never forget.

+ As we didn't have much time to spend in New Delhi but still wanted to see as much as possible, we booked this tour. We arrived by train and the guide picked us up at the railway of New Delhi. Then we started the tour through New and Old Delhi with him and our driver. They brought us to many different placed and told us a lot about the Indian culture. We also had a ride with a Ricksha through the narrow streets of Delhi and visited the Spice Market where we had the chance to buy some spices of India. We didn't feel pushed so it was all fine. They also brought us to a very good restaurant in Delhi where we had Lunch. After our tour they dropped us off at the hotel. We were satisfied and it was very interesting. - The additional costs for this tour are a little bit annoying. We already paid money for the tour but there are so many stops where you have to pay for entrances etc. on top. Maybe it would be good if the providers add this to the fix price.
