I give one start because of the great Guide
I gave two stars for the cool and unique underground and rooftop walk.
However, This should NOT start at 10 am from the Spice Market which is mostly close till 12. After the walk finish, I needed to walk back to enjoy actually.
1. Stop to look at the Fort is a waste of time better use in the old town markets
2. Start at 12 pm and with the Sikh Template so to get MAX experience from going into the markets when they are open and busy.
3. Add some experience, like testing
We traveled a total of 33 hours from Colorado to Dehli to spend Christmas with my husband in India as he was working over the vacation. My kids were exhausted and at first not excited to take a tour. We met Shehnaz and INSTANTLY that changed. She was absolutely fantastic and her knowledge of the city and the entire tour was incredible. I honestly wish we could bottle her up and take her with us for the rest of our vacation. The tour itself was amazing, and the kids 8 and 11 were mesmerized. I was so impressed what we saw over such a short amount of time. Thank you, Shehnaz for making day one in Dehli so fantastic. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour!
I signed up for the trip late at night the day before and turned out to be the only person on the trip! Jitu was an excellent guide who spoke good English, did the proper introductions, and provided good information on the places that we visited. He also had ready answers to my various questions about Delhi and India. The trip started at Rajiv Chowd metro station and we took a subway to old Delhi, which turned out to be the only metro ride I had taken during my stay in Delhi. At old Delhi, we took a rickshaw which again turned out to be the only chance that I had during my stay to ride in such a mode of transportation. The ride was bumpy, which was to be expected, but also provided a good window to savoring the sights and sounds of the old city. The rest of the visit was conducted by foot, and as Jitu rightly pointed out, one has to possess strong legs and nimble reflexes in order to cross the streets in the old city, due to the hoards of humanity and the massive chaotic traffic! Cling on tightly to your bags and personal belongings! The spice market was colorful and fascinating, and great for pictures if you are into photography. The Sikh temple was sombre yet interesting, and made me want to read up more about the history of Sikhism. The trip ended with a metro ride back to Rajiv Chowd metro station. Overall a highly recommended trip if you have a few hours to spare in Delhi!
We had a wonderful time exploring Old Delhi with our guide, Prideep. He took the time to make sure we were engaged and answered all our (sometimes) random questions. Walking through the various streets and alleyways was impressive but easily managed to cover the various markets within Chandi Chowk. This was my first time to use the Delhi metro system and it was easy!
