Departure Time

9:00 AM
Receive a morning pickup from your Delhi hotel or a location of your choosing. You’ll travel through the city aboard a private air-conditioned minivan, starting your trip with a driving-based tour of the city.

Check out heritage Delhi sights including the 1500-year old Iron Pillar, Humayun’s Tomb, and Qutub Minar. You’ll also drive past the Delhi Embassy Area, Connaught Palace, India Gate, the government area, and the city’s main shopping district. Continue the trip by passing through the walled gates of Delhi’s Old City, stopping to visit the Jamma Mosque and the Chadni Chowk (Moonlight Square), a popular shopping area. You’ll also get to visit the Raj Ghat, along with some of the other “ghats” where famous Indian figures like Mahatma Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, and Indira Gandhi were cremated.

Finish your Delhi exploration by climbing aboard a three-wheeled rickshaw pedaled by a “Rickshawalla” (rickshaw driver). You’ll weave in and out of traffic and down hidden side streets, experiencing a slice of daily life in Delhi largely hidden from most visitors. You won’t believe the range of vendors you’ll pass during your trip, including one retailer who specializes in “laughing dentures.” At the end of your rickshaw excursion, you’ll be returned to your hotel or original starting point.

This was a personal tour, meaning I was the only one on the tour, but the driver and guide were over one hour late for the agreed and confirmed pickup time at my hotel. Tour guide was terrible. Gave little or no time in explanation at each sight visited, and was rushed, as he was typically 15 to 20 steps ahead of me at all times. This certainly does not lend itself to an informative experience. I complained through the driver, who informed the owner, who's response was, I do not care if he is unhappy. I recommend seeing the sights around New Delhi, just not with this company.
