Really enjoyed this trip. I only had a day in Delhi so this allowed me to see the highlights easily. The guide was great.

The tour was an excellent introduction to Old Delhi. We enjoyed the architecture and art within the Red Fort, the spice market at the Chandni Chowk. The guide was kind enough to customize the tour to exclude sites we had visited already and add others instead. Christal Tours is a very serious company and we highly recommend it.
