What people are saying about New Delhi

We visited Akshardham in the afternoon to also watch the light and sound show. Our guide Kajal was really special, he accompanied us all the way to discover the life of Swaminarayan and the construction of Akshardham himself with kindness and professionalism, truly a fantastic girl. The temple is wonderful both day and night when thanks to the illumination it takes on magical attention. The energy that is felt in the midst of so many people was very strong. Our driver Santosh was also particularly nice, very clean and comfortable car. Thanks to the organization of Go City Adventures Bahut Bahut Shukrya
