LOVED our tour with The Delhi Way!! The 3-day tour we took with The Delhi Way was fantastic!!! We spent two days touring around Old/New Delhi and one day traveling to Agra. Our tour guides each day were wonderful – they were knowledgeable, fun, and really made sure we got the most out of our visit to the Delhi area. It felt like a friend was showing you around the city, rather than a tour guide. I would highly recommend The Delhi Way!! We are so happy we toured with them.

Prianka took us to the lesser known parts of Delhi as well as the big monuments and was very informative and friendly. It was very interesting to see how some of the locals washed their clothes and large water wells, something I had not known before. She took us around the Sikh Temple and other large monuments on our tour which was very eye opening. Lunch was very tasty as we were taken to try something different.
