Riyaz was an amazing guide! He gave a full tour and even took us unseen places. I’ve lived in Dehi for more than 20 years but that was my best Chandni Chowk experience. Went all the way to the top of the Masjid tower for the first time. Because Riyaz lives there, he shares personal stories of what it is to live in Delhi-6. He gave the entire tour in perfect English for my wife, who doesn’t speak any Hindi.

Great experience with Junaid! Highly recommend this tour, especially for single female travelers. I felt super safe and had a much better experience navigating Old Delhi with Junaid. We had a great time at Jama Masjid and since it was a Sunday the market was mostly closed, but still worth the trip! I was even super lost in the beginning and Junaid came and found me.

Suraj was an excellent guide. Without him, it would have been impossible to experience Old Delhi in its true glory. Great shopping and Street food was added into the mix to make it a truly memorable experience.

Amazing! Our tour guide was so lovely and insightful and we got to taste some of the most amazing at the eat food in Old Delhi! Could not recommend enough
