What people are saying about Humayun's Tomb
Travelling alone the drivers and the guides were always on time bringing me through the sometimes crowded sights and being flexible regarding personal interests. My guides in Agra and Fatapur Sikri (option added to the Agra tour which I would highly recommended) were exceptional giving a lot of detail about the places and always knowing the fastest way to enter the sights skipping queues and the best places to take pictures. Only small improvement - there was no pressure and the heritage presentation was very nice but I would recommend is to check at the beginning what kind of shopping is in the interest of the guest. My guide in Delhi was somewhat less into the detail giving more free space to discover so I could see a lot during the day from the old and new Delhi. My weekend ended at the airport by 1830 pm and started only 11.00 so I would recommend to start earlier as there is some waiting time by the entrances and add a review of the plan at the beginning to fit all.
We had a few specific places we wanted to see Humayun's Tomb, Akshardam Temple, Agrasen di Baoli, lunch at Moti Mahal and some clothes shopping with whatever time left over for my fiancee. Our guide gave a nice background on the sites we visited and answered several of my questions along the way. Although pictures are not allowed inside Akshardam Temple I would still consider it a must stop in New Delhi. Of modern architecture I have not seen anything that compares to it. Moti Mahal, the creators of Butter Chicken, was absolutely delicious. The only problem we had with most restaurant stops was requesting spicy, but being foreigners receiving less spicy food from the restaurants. Moti Mahal was no exception. Still...delicous. The only negative thing I have to say was the shopping. There are several cheap places to buy clothes around New Delhi, but we were taken to a linen store that pays out commission to tour guides and was frankly overpriced on all their items.
On our business trip to India, we had that weekend in Delhi for some activities. We are glad to had that amazing tour with our guide Rishi. He has well knowledge about everything you might want to know about the history or present Delhi and everything beyond. He is engaged, smart and we felt safe among the whole tour. Afterwards you can say Delhi, especially Old Delhi is an open hearted, colorful city that spoils your nose with neverhad scents. On our list was in order of visitation Qutub Minar, Lotus Temple, Red Fort, to the alleys of Chandni Chowk to Jama Masjid and a small Sikh Temple, Khari Baoli Spice Market, Agrasen Ki Baoli, India Gate.
Our guide Aamir Khan was informative and knowledgeable. He was friendly and spoke clear English. He provided lots of other insights into the Indian culture and life in India as we visited the various sites throughout the day. We found that interesting. Our driver Himanshu Saxena picked us up promptly at the hotel and was always there for us when we finished visiting the site. He transported us expertly around the crowded streets of Delhi. He was friendly and helpful. Both of these gentlemen were extremely professional and provided an excellent experience for us throughout the day.
We had already seen a few of the sights on a tour the previous day and so our guide didn’t hesitate to alter his initial plan to ensure we saw new things. The downside of the day was the rain which sadly meant not as much walking as we hadn’t any wet weather clothes with us. The highlight was undoubtedly the Ghandi memorial for us - what a guy! The guide and driver worked well together and we felt very safe with them.
