City tour with Delhi Way
Nisha the guide was wonderful. She took us through Old Delhi, the spice markets, down back alleys and up again, stopping along the way to try delicious samosas, Indian sweets, then to the mosque, lunch at Karims, and some shopping on the side, Nisha was friendly and knowledgeable and we had a great introduction to Delhi as our guide. Would recommend “The Delhi Way’ company to anyone going over to Delhi and passed the company’s tour details onto 2 travel agents doing out Golden Triangle tour.

Best birthday ever!
Divya had made the best birthday of my life ever! She greeted my friend and I with a birthday basket full of goodies and took me to the best back alleys of Old Delhi. I would never experience Delhi the I did if not for her. Thank you for making my visit there the most memorable one ever! And I think you will see me real soon!
