The tour was a great meeting x we f everything that make Old Delhi what it is. History, religion, food and trade. It is a walking tour so you get a real ground level feel for the sights, smells and sound of the area

There were some minor problems in the beginning (driver did not show up), however all was solved perfectly and I ended up having a great tour, seeing many parts of Delhi I would otherwise never have visited as a solo traveler. Tour guide was nice and very knowledgeable. If you don't have much time for your Delhi visit, this half day tour (including Red Fort visit) is what I absolutely recommend :)

Suraj was very friendly and knowledgeable, we really enjoyed our tour, especially seeing food being prepared at the Sikh temple. The tour has given us more confidence to travel around Delhi- Suraj very kindly showed us how to use the metro and got us into the right trains. Would highly recommend this tour!

We had a great tour with Sunil! He was very informative about Indian history and culture. In half a day, we were able to see Old Delhi markets, a mosque, a temple, and the Red Fort. Highly recommend this tour and Sunil as a guide!

Three friends and I took this tour, also a lovely couple from Monrovia joined the tour. Our guide, Anshul, met us promptly and after introductions we were off! We began with a metro ride. A few stops later and we were in Old Delhi. The area was bursting with life. People walking. Bicycles. Rickshaws. Hand trucks. People coming and going, loading and unloading goods. People living life on the streets, cutting hair, getting a shave, sewing clothes, ironing. The colors. The wares. The sheer number of people. The sounds. The horns. The smells. Wow! Anshul did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the area, as well as what’s current in an interesting and relatable way. He skillfully guided us through the streets, and a few alleys. We went to the Jama Masjid Mosque, a Sikh temple, Kinari Bazaar, and the spice market. Along the way we sampled daulat ki chaat, and had wonderful chaayos. Plus we had a birdseye view over the spice market from a rooftop. Besides the metro ride, we also rode a rickshaw. All-in-all a very enjoyable tour. After the tour concluded, we mentioned that we were going to try and reverse our walking path back to our hotel. Anshul offered to walk back with us and help guide us. His helpfulness was much appreciated.
