    The guide took us through several historical places to see the architecture of Delhi, it was very interesting. We went to the Karol Bagh metro station near our hotel, to Ugrasen Ki Baioli, great photo opportunities, then by car to the Humayun Tomb Complex passing by the India Gate and the Government Palace. Our guide was really good, she was very kind and explained us a lot of things and encouraged us to ask questions. I highly recommend it!

    Thanks to Prashant we had a great Old Delhi tour! Prashant has been amazing to us: it has been very nice to chat with him and the time went by all too fast. He explained us about the neighbourhood and the historical buildings, and also took us to a very good chai place as we told him we loved it. We liked the mix between bazar and market streets, temple and mosque; all in great company. We also enjoyed a snack together. At the end of the tour we asked him for help to buy something we needed and he patiently helped with that too! It was really a nice day thanks to him and we hope to see him again.

    The Delhi Urban Adventure tour was everything we hoped for as an introduction to this vibrant city of Delhi. Our tour guide AB which he kindly told us to call him - as he rightly considered we would have difficulty with his full name " Abhinav " - was like the city itself: vibrant, colourful, keen but best of all well informed about the city's history as well as its modern day culture and society. We had complete confidence with his local knowledge and awed with his positive negotiation with and control of the TukTuk driver who amazingly managed to get us unscathed from our pick up in the centre to our prearranged rendezvous with our designated driver for the duration of the tour. The driver was also excellent and made us feel safe in spite of the traffic chaos around us. AB provided us with full history of the Points of Interest included on the Tour but better, we gained in response to our many questions,a real insight and flavour of real Delhi and India today. The sort of local 'colour' that we love to experience and flavour. A fun, eivhtening and thoroughly enjoyable time throughout. A snack meal is included in the Tour and at our request AB took us to a fabulous local place to partake in some local fayre and chai. Again different and thoroughly enjoyable and somewhere we would never have found for ourselves in a million years. The whole experience was excellent and we would suggest the Tour is a MUST to book if you have the time. Make sure that if you do book that you do so with Abhinav as your guide. You will not be disappointed. Ken & Giovanna

    Our guide PRASHANT took us on a great tour of Old Dehli. Ghandi’s Museum was inspiring, the ancient city well was surprising. The 12 course food tasting tour was the best! Don’t have lunch before you go!! Would not have been game to try the street food with out Prashants’s guidance. We were well informed and entertained for the whole afternoon and evening.

    I loved this tour. Prashant was incredible - it was my first day in Delhi and he showed us some incredible places to eat, as well as giving us a great walking tour around Old Delhi. We saw a Sikh temple, Hindu temple and walked through a spice market, as well as riding the metro. He was also kind enough to take us to a dessert place when we asked to try some Indians desserts. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

    Prahlad took us to some amazing temples and other sights, including Ghandi's last residence. He has a great knowledge of the places we went to and has a lovely manner. We all throughly enjoyed our awe inspiring time on this tour.

    Our guide Eshita was really nice, full or energy, funny and professional. We got picked up straight after our morning tour and drop off in front of hotel after it ended. Our best part was the food walk, we tried so many difference types straight from the street and it was absolutely delicious. recommend to bring enough water and empty stomach :)

    We had the most enjoyable time learning about the Hindu, Sikh and Muslim religions and shared some truly memorable food with Sunny Shukla our guide for the day. Sunny who is young enough to be our grandson knew how to interact with us. His English is impeccable. His passion for his work, enthusiusm and delightful nature ensured we had a great day

    I did the Culture Vulture tour in Old Delhi with Sunny Shukla. I had to come on and leave a review. He was an amazing, enthusiastic tour guide and I’ve never met anyone more happy to be at work. His sunny disposition and enthusiasm set the tone for our whole trip and no tour guide has compared since! Would love to see him as a guide for more long term trips. People will love him! Thanks sunny! We also had Arman for our food walk and he was an amazing guide also! Super friendly and easy to get along with and up to date with all our Aussie slang which made for a fun night! He was informative and we are super glad we got to try all the fun food Delhi had to offer! Those food comas were well worth it!
