Delhi is a city that bridges two different worlds. Old Delhi, once the capital of Islamic India, is a labyrinth of narrow streets lined with crumbling havelis (homes or mansions) and mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi created by the British Raj is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and striking government buildings. In this private sightseeing tour of Old and New Delhi, you will visit Raj Ghat, Red Fort, Humayun's Tomb, Qutub Minar, Rashtrapati Bhawan and India Gate. All entrance fees and taxes are included in the price of this tour.

Know More about this tour

In the morning, your driver and guide will pick you up in an air-conditioned car from your hotel. Start your sightseeing tour by visiting Raj Ghat, located on the banks of the river Yamuna. This is Mahatma Gandhis memorial, where he was cremated following his assassination in January 1948. The memorial lies in the midst of landscaped gardens and is made of a simple square platform of black marble inscribed with his last words Hey Ram. After Raj Ghat, visit Red Fort (closed on Monday).The 17th-century stunning fortress built in red sandstone is surrounded by a huge, 108-foot boundary wall. Inside are exquisite palaces and beautiful gardens. Opposite the Red Fort lies Jama Masjid (Friday mosque) made of red sandstone and white marble. It is Indias largest mosque where more than 20,000 people can kneel in prayer at one time.

After lunch (at your own expense), visit New Delhi and Humayuns Tomb, built by Humayun's wife Haji Begum in the 16th century. It is an early example of Mughal architecture considered the predecessor of the Taj Mahal. After Humayun's Tomb visit Qutub Minar which is 237-feet high and is the landmark of Delhi. After Qutub Minar, proceed to drive past the Rashtrapati Bhawan/President's House, the official residence of the President of India.

  • The tour guide and the driver were brilliant. However, the restaurant they took us to red onion or the new red onion, has made us very ill ruining the next few days of our holiday, we have even had to re-organise another tour we were booked to go on as we have been too ill to go. The online reviews for this resturant are very poor but as the tour doesn't state the resturant you will go to you cannot read up on it before hand. If you do book this tour, avoid the red onion.

  • This was a good tour. Pretty informative, wish we had time to see more. Guide spoke good English that for the most part was easy t understand.

  • Guide was very good---for the main part anyhow, and the basic nuts and bolts of the tour were fine. I had requested no shopping---but---this was disregarded---and to shops etc we went---might as well have talked to myself. I had been under the impression that entry fees etc had been paid for in tour costs----didn't stop the guide demanding that I cough up for some of them---your paperwork regarding this needs to be more specific and tell all----Tips---I realise that people on the fringes of the tourist industry in India -- including guides and drivers are poorly paid ---but a traveller gets sick and tired of paying for a supposed entry fees etc etc ,-- but then ----everybody and his dog ---including guides and drivers---have their hands hanging out for tips---even the guide putting the heavies on you to tip various people---JUST TAKES THE ENJOYMENT RIGHT OUT OF IT AND SPOILS WHAT COULD/SHOULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD DAY----wake up to yourselves India---include--like many Asian countries---tips , gratuities etc in your prices---you can show these separately in price breakdown so that travellers know whats going on---but then---the boss would probably pocket them and the staff would be no better off---As it is --all smells like a big tourist rip off, and i am sure does nothing for India's reputation as a destination---but guess---who cares ??

  • Excellent tour with good guide and driver.
    Unfortunately my tour was on or close to Mahatma Gandhi's memorial day so some things were closed or too difficult to get close to.
    If I had know that I would have changed the date of the tour.
    Highlight of the tour was Humayuns Tomb and Jama Masjid.

  • Nothing special,seemed a bit rushed.

  • Our tour leader was very understanding and was able to accommodate to our needs. Enjoyed this trip!

  • I thought the guide I had was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed hearing what he had to say. I also loved that he showed me the best spots to take photos from. I definitely recommend.

  • Guide and drivers were on time, what a good way to discover Delhi without the hassle and the fear of being scammed at every corner. Too bad we could not access the Gandhi memorial because of a VIP visit but we saw some fantastic attractions like the Jama Masjid, Qutub minar and Humayun's tomb.

  • Fantastic guide! His passion and knowledge brought Delhi to life. He gave us that extra insight that made all the difference.
