What people are saying about Chandni Chowk

English: We booked the tour on very short notice since we won a day off in Delhi by coincidence. Although it was very late to book, all went absolutely perfect. The Company was in immediate Contact, did all bookings for the monument fees and the driver arrived soon and his drivimg was supersafe and very, very friendly. The guide we had was very motivated and took very good care of us. To make a long story short: Thumbs up! Safe Honest Knowledgeable Motivated Next time im Delhi, we use the same Company for going to TajMahal. Anytime again! Thank you!

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.

The guide - jimmy was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the monuments and general Delhi life. The driver was courteous and safe. Overall had a very good experience and would thoroughly recommend this trip.

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.

Riyaz the guide is really knowledgeable with good storytelling skills. He takes excellent pictures and is very friendly. Vikas the driver drives well and safely.
