My tour guide was Durgendra Singh and had Saddam Ali as a driver. This was such a phenomenal trip! This was my last day in Delhi and this was so worth it!! even if you have 5-6 hours, you can customize the trip to your liking. Durgendra had a knowledge like an encyclopedia with a ton of contextual insights. They both also had great food and shopping recs! Overall this is a must book if you’re in Delhi.
