Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Red Fort, Netaji Subhash Marg, New Delhi 110002 India

Start your journey at the meeting point (Patel Chowk Metro Station, Outside of Gate No 1) where your guide awaits you. Travel by Metro to Red Fort and enjoy the Red sandstone walls of the massive Red Fort (Lal Qila), which rises 33-m above the clamour of Old Delhi as a reminder of the magnificent power and pomp of the Mughal emperors. The walls, built in 1638, were designed to keep out invaders, now they mainly keep out the noise and confusion of the city.

Next, visit Jama Masjid; this great mosque in Old Delhi is the largest in India, with a courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees. Building began in 1644 and ended up being the final architectural masterpiece of Shah Jahan, the Mughal emperor who built the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort.

Duration: 30 minutes

Afterwards visit the Sikh temple, Gurudwara Sis Ganj, and visit the kitchen section of the temple where meals are prepared for the masses.

Excellent tour! Our favorite sites were the Red Fort and the Sikh Temple. Seeing the Red Fort is really nice because you get to see the parallels between it and the Taj Mahal.

I enjoyed a solo tour with lovely Akansha. She's very passionate about her city and her country, and is very flexible to meet your needs during the tour (e.g. if you want to spend more time at one location or skip a location). For me it was the perfect combination of visiting landmarks and just walking in the streets of Old Delhi, getting a glimpse at the life of its inhabitants and merchants. The duration of the tour was perfect, lasted from 9:00 AM to 13:00 PM with a lunch break. By the end of the tour I was satisfied I have seen plenty of things without being completely worn out. Akansha made it completely hassle free, she took care of booking tickets in advance, buying metro tickets on the spot, etc. I particularly enjoyed the visit to the Sikh Temple, I would have never done it without her / alone :) All in all, great tour, would definitely recommend it.

I went on two outings with Go city adventures in Delhi, which i booked through 'get your guide'. As a woman traveling solo I felt safe and well cared for the whole time. Before each trip I received messages on WhatsApp to tell me the details of driver name, car registration number, and pick up time. My questions were answered promptly via WhatsApp. I enjoyed my two trips, which i have reviewed separately, and would definitely use this company again.

As a solo female traveler, I was apprehensive about being the only person on the walking tour, but Deepak, my guide, made me feel at ease. He was well informed about the sites and pleasant to spend time with. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour and would recommend it to others.
