Full description
Your full-day tour of India’s capital begins with the historic portion of the city, Old Delhi. After pickup from your hotel, set off towards the Red Fort, which was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who also built the Taj Mahal. Afterwards, you’ll weave through the bustling shopping area of Chandni Chowk by rickshaw, ending up at the Jama Masjid, a 17th-century mosque that is the largest in India. After stopping for an authentic local lunch, you’ll head into New Delhi, visiting the Qutub Minar, the world’s tallest brick minaret, before stopping at the Tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Next it’s off to the India Gate, a memorial to the Indian soldiers who died during World War I, before heading to the Lotus Temple, elegantly designed in the shape of a lotus flower.  To cap things off you’ll drive past the Presidential House and the Parliament Buildings before being driven back to your accommodation.

Fantastic full day with Asim and Raj exploring new and old delhi’s main attractions with information in English. The cherry on top was an amazing tricycle ride with the lovely Mustafa through the busy streets of Chandni Chowk. Highly recommend contacting DelightTour for your next Delhi adventure. Great communication and super punctual!

Arpit our guide was absolutely great. We had a really fun by relaxed day seeing many of the big sights in Delhi - we packed a lot in but he never hurried us. He was great at knowing the inside track on how to still see the sights avoiding the queues and took us to an extra Sikh temple to see tue community kitchen which was just brilliant . I would really recommend this tour. Our driver was also very calm and we felt very safe with him.

I had an amazing time! Denish (driver) arrived on time, the car was clean, with a/c and complimentary water was offered. My guide Manu was very kind and informative. He explained many details about Indian history, nice approach on the culture, but at the same time made my trip funny. We visited Jama Masjid, Rickshaw Ride, Chandni Chowk, Red Fort (outside), Humayun Tomb, India Gate, Parliament House and Qutub Minar. We had very nice Indian lunch at a restaurant. Overall, 5 star experience and I would highly recommend it for someone who wants to visit the main monuments in Old and New Delhi!!!!
