Know More about this tour

Your private sightseeing tour of Delhi starts as you are picked up from your hotel by your guide and driven to Bahai Temple, commonly referred to as the Lotus temple for its stunning shape that looks like an unfurling white lotus. Admire its renowned architectural design, and then enter the temple and learn about its history from your expert guide as you enjoy the welcoming atmosphere, inviting people of all religions to worship.


Afterward, make your way to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Qutub minar, which boasts the tallest minaret (a tall spire common on Islamic mosques) in India, standing at 238 feet (73 meters). Walk around the complex with your guide and encounter folk curiosities along the way, like a mystic with a pet parrot eagerly waiting to predict your future (gratuities at your own expense).


Next youre off to colorful Dilli haat, an open-air Indian crafts and food bazaar offering a large variety of handmade goods, fabrics and tasty treats that promote many of Indias cultural traditions. For lunch, enjoy food from any one of the permanent food stalls. Then, explore the market, maneuvering with ease through the stalls and communicating effortlessly with vendors with the help of your guide. Admire (and purchase if you wish) local handicrafts like ornaments, camel-skin footwear, sandalwood and rosewood carvings, gems and a whole lot more.


On the drive back to your hotel, pass by some of Delhis well-known attractions, such as India Gate, built in memory of soldiers who lost their lives in World War I; the Rashtrapati bhavan (President House), the official residence of the President of India; and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Humayuns Tomb, the tomb of Mughal Emperor Humayun. If you wish, ask your guide to stop at any of these places for a photo opportunity.


Before you are dropped off at your hotel, youll receive your complimentary souvenir! Females will receive a beautiful mehndi (henna tattoo) drawn on their hands, and males will get a pugree (traditional Indian turban) wrapped around their heads.

    Great trip! Saw a little bit of everything, had lots of fun.

    My guide was both informative and fun! I loved having both a guide and a driver. It made the trip very easy since I didn't have to worry about getting tickets, which line to wait in, where to park, how to get there, etc. I recommend Viator to anyone visiting India.

    A great tour that had amazing design architecture and history. The guide was very pleasant and knew the stories behind the sites and Delhi well. Although not much at Dilli Haat and the lunch could be better, the overall tour very good and well worth it.

    The driver and guide were on time to pick me up from my hotel. The first half of the day went well. I got to see the Lotus Temple and the Qutub Minar Complex. But that was all. No lunch, and no visiting of "Peruse local handicrafts and sample traditional eats at Dilli Haat, a colorful bazaar, Experience Delhi through the eyes of a local with the help of your friendly expert guide" as the package detailed. So it was only a half say tour while I paid for an entire day. By 1:00 PM I was back in my hotel, very disappointed.

    The guide was fabulous. The driver handled the traffic well. We enjoyed each site at our own pace. Even the lunch was good. Thanks!

    We really enjoyed it. We swapped the Qutub Minar for the Humiyun Tomb. We appreciated this flexibility. Would thoroughly recommend the tomb too. The Lotus Temple was beautiful and well worth the visit. The Dilli Haat was a lovely market - not as pressured as a lot of other markets - relaxing.
