The guide - jimmy was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the monuments and general Delhi life. The driver was courteous and safe. Overall had a very good experience and would thoroughly recommend this trip.

Although we booked a late start at 11 am, the guide managed to make the most of our time, and still made it to the most famous points of attraction of the city. Next time we do the rest. Depart before 9 am.
