What people are saying about New Delhi

Spent a great day visiting the Taj Mahal & the Baby Taj with friends. Vishal Garg, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the Taj’s history and it’s surroundings, and explained everything so clearly. He was organised, funny, and charismatic. Our driver was punctual, drove safely, and navigated the busy roads very carefully. We were also provided with lots of bottles of water to keep us well-hydrated throughout the very hot day. We booked first class tickets on the train and would highly recommend for others to do the same. It was very comfortable and the AC worked very well (maybe a little too well as it was a bit chilly on board). We got snacks in the morning - banana, biscuits, tea - and in the evening - juice, tea, biscuits, nuts, and some pasta dinner we didn’t eat just to be on the safe side. We stopped for lunch at an Indian restaurant (highly recommend the garlic naan) and for a coffee at a Costa Cafe before getting the train back to Delhi. Wonderful tour!

I thoroughly enjoyed my morning tour with Faizy! He is a fantastic storyteller, sharing anecdotes as we enjoyed the beautiful murals and walked past many interesting sights of the locals' day-to-day living. His patience and warmth are sincerely felt and I am so glad that he could show me around at my last-minute booking! Fate brought us together and I am delighted to have found a new friend who shares common interests! I will definitely look Faizy up again when I visit India! He is highly recommended!
