Your driver will pick you up from your hotel or airport in the morning and take you to meet your tour guide. You will head out to visit the tomb of the Mughal emperor, Humayun. The tomb, located in Nizamuddin East, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, and was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. The expected length of the visit is an hour.

After, visit Qutab Minar, a soaring 73 meter tower, and the tallest brick minaret in the world. It was built in 1193 by Qutub-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom, and is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. The expected length of the visit is 45-minutes.

 

Next up is the Lotus Temple (closed on Mondays), the last of seven major Bahai temples, and built in 1986 out of pure white marble. Around the blooming petals are nine pools of water which light up in natural light. The expected length of the visit is an hour.

After the Lotus Temple visit you’ll be taken toward your luxurious lunch in the multi-cuisine, fully air-conditioned restaurant where you can get all the delicious flavors and delicacies of the city (at own expense).

Next, visit Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India, with its courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees. It was begun in 1650 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, and more than 5,000 workers toiled for six years to complete it. The expected length of the visit is 30-minutes.

At the center of New Delhi stands the 42 meter India Gate, an Arc-de-Triomphe-like archway in the middle of a crossroad. It was built as a memorial to the 70,000 India soldiers killed in World War I. The gate was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and completed in 1931. The expected length of the visit is 15-minutes.

After the gate, head to the Red Fort, constructed in 1648 by the 5th Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, and the residence of the emperor for about 200 years, until 1857. The Red Fort’s innovative architectural style, including its garden design, influenced later buildings and gardens in Delhi. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. The expected length of the visit is an hour.

In the evening you will be taken back your hotel, or airport, along with your cherished memories of the Delhi sightseeing tour.

A wonderful and well Organised tour arranged by A Star Company. We had Many as our guide and he is amazing and well knowledgeable person. He let us know the facts about history that we even didn't expect. We also confirm that we did not miss any historic site as well completed our list too. Our driver was also skill and nice person.Indian Food included was good and delicious. It was our last day in India and we are glad we did our last tour with this company. I can wholeheartedly recommend A Star Tours company and Manu(Guide) to anyone using their services.

Professional from the start, immediate communication and confirmation from the tour operator. Our guide Manu was extremely knowledgeable, very patient, and took us to see more sights than what was on the program. Highly recommended, do not miss.

We had an 8 hour layover in Delhi and decided at the last minute to do some sightseeing. I booked A Star Tours the day before and was really impressed with the prompt service - they contacted me immediately via whatsapp and arranged to customize the normal 9 hour tour to for into a 5 hour window. Asim was an excellent host throughout - he was very flexible and incredibly professional, even as we were delayed at immigration. We had an excellent tour guide (Manu) who was very knowledgeable and articulate. If we did not have the benefit of his insights we would have missed much of the richness in the history of the sights we visited. I would highly recommend these guys. They managed our time brilliantly and in the end it felt like we'd got the best use out of our short time in Delhi. Thanks to the team at A Star tours.

Excellent trip and fabulous guides. Would not hesitate to recommend. My group included my elderly grandparents and Asim and colleagues were fantastic with them, walking slowly etc. We went on circa 8 trips whilst in India and this was by far the best! Personable and knowledgeable guides who made us Brits feel completely comfortable throughout Old and New Delhi - just book this trip now!

A day before trip, Asim contacted me via Whatsapp and passed me the details of our driver and car.There, my questions were answered immediately.My driver Ajay, a very polite guy picked up me on time from my hotel in New Delhi. My tour guide was Manu, and he did a fantastic job of customizing this tour to make sure I had see everything I wanted to.Not forget to taste indian food, it would made your day.We started up form Old Delhi and ended up our tour in New Delhi, i was amazed what the city has to offer. It was really fantastic tour and I would take this tour again when staying in India. Highly recommended!
