Our guide Ankush and the driver Rehman went out of their way to make sure we spend a good night in new delhi. Even though we started the tour late due to a delay in our flight they were able to compensate for our delay beautifully. Furthermore, they took us to have dinner in a delicious restaurant even though it’s not part of the itinerary and they waited for us. They are very helpful and informative. I really recommend touring new delhi with them.

Our tour guide James was really nice and informative answering any questions we had. We were only a group of 4 and he was very accommodating to the needs of the group (the other couple didn’t want to try anything - despite being on a food tour - but he took us to multiple food places to try and find something that we would all enjoy!). Thank you James!

Solo traveler review: very nice tour, I recommend to start very early to be there before the crowds. Driver was kind and already waiting for me outside the hotel. Tour guide was fun and took very good photos. Definitely recommended.

We have 3 different tour guides & 2 drivers on our 3D2N tour. Our drivers are very polite & went beyond their job scope in assisting our needs and our tour guide in Delhi & Jaipur are great & doing a great job!

Alam the guide and Muktar the driver were just great. Flexed the tour to my wishes, covered so much and even when over 9 hours. The Dharavi slum visit was unforgettable
