I had the good fortune to take two different tours with Delhi by Locals. The first one was in Agra at the Taj Mahal with Mukesh, and the second one was a Delhi Day Tour with Pradeep (the CEO of Delhi by Locals). Both times our patient, thorough, well-informed tour guides impressed me. I was teaching at the Himalayan Writing Retreat and Chetan Mahajan, the owner, organized both tours. As usual, Chetan keeps good company and picks the best people.

For the Taj Mahal with Mukesh, we had some health issues in our group. We were delayed and having to split up for a moment. Mukesh was incredibly empathetic and patient and helped us resolve the situation. I've traveled to many countries, I've studied abroad and been on plenty of tours, including in Egypt, and Mukesh is the most patient, caring guide I have ever met. He wound up helping us to have the best time at the Taj Mahal on an incredibly hot day. He gave us the history, showed us important details, but also knew every spot that was great for a photo opportunity. Even better, he willingly (and happily!) took solo and group pictures of the members of our group. Mukesh acted modest, but not only is he a knowledgeable, great guide, but he's also an excellent photographer. (I am an amateur photographer and photo-obsessed. This is high praise!)

Because we had such a great tour, we were excited for our Delhi Day Tour with Pradeep. He took us through Old Delhi to Sikh, Jaine, and Hindu temples. We walked through the courtyard of a mosque. He took us through a narrow, amazing alleyway into what felt like a secret Delhi. We went to the food market, had fun riding on cycle rickshaws. Pradeep knows the hidden gems of Old Delhi. I only wish I had more time for more tours with Delhi Day Tours! On a future trip...

I highly recommend Delhi Day Tours to anyone traveling to India. I have been telling all my friends about this wonderful company and tour guides. These tour guides actually care about their customers as well as the people in their community. This is such a vital company. We should all support it! Thank you so much Mukesh and Pradeep for such special tours, and wonderful pictures!

I only had a short time in Delhi and Pradeep was able to change arrangements at short notice to accommodate - which was useful to me. It is a walking tour but uses autorickshaws and the Delhi Metro to get to and from places also and shows you these parts of local life. Coming out the metro is an attack on your senses - a very different Delhi to the one you left. We visited the Spice Market and walked through alleys piled with bags of chillis and onto rooftops of houses to get the best views. Everywhere there is noise, activity, buying, selling - and even tightrope walking!

The walk continues through the streets to food markets, tea stalls and even past wedding shops where you can see men and women trying on lavish outfits.

A visit to a Sikh temple concluded the tour and included making bread for the hundreds of meals served in the dining room.

Pradeep was a great guide and has a well organised business. A great afternoon!

I really enjoyed this tour! The communication from the organisers ahead of the booking was great, and Salman was a perfect guide, very knowledgeable and thoughtful. He showed me corners of Old Delhi that I would never have come across otherwise, the pace of the tour was perfect, and Salman's descriptions about the things we saw and did was a great combination of history and quirky facts. I can't recommend this tour highly enough!

Pradeep is not simply your travel guide in Delhi, he can be your "Go To Guy" in Delhi. He will not only provide you what you have requested for but he will go above and beyond to prove you a lot of local Info and support so that you can plan your holiday just the way you want. He was friendly, well aware of our needs throughout the tour and really good with Kids.

We spent two wonderful days with Pradeep. On our first day we has a private tour of places we had not visited on our prior trip to Delhi. Pradeep is an excellent tour guide — knowledgeable, enthusiast, and a sense of humor. He really loves his work and it shows. The next morning we went on the motorbike tour and had an amazing adventure. Going to Old Delhi including many markets on the back of motorbikes was worth getting up early for. Always felt safe and well taken care of. Pradeep is a committed community educator and also runs a non-profit to teach and empower youth. Highly recommend.

Our tour guide was Pradeep Kumar and he was amazing. We did the Old Delhi tour - visited a Jain Temple and Bird Hospital, Sikh Gudwara, Muslim and Buddhist temples. So very interesting and he was so knowledgeable about the various customs. We also went underground Delhi, where tourists rarely go and this was amazingly interesting. I have to add that Pradeep went above and beyond for me, who was leaving our group to take the subway to connect with a friend. Not only did he show me where to go, but he actually took the subway with me and waited with me until my friend came to collect with me. He is such a kind-hearted good person.
I strongly encourage you to trust and use this great tour guide organization!

We had an amazing tour! We could ask the guide everything and he answerd all our question. We learned a lot and saw many many things! I especially liked baking some naan bread in the biggest kitchen in Delhi. The food places he showed us were veryvery yummie! He even came to the train station with us and helped us to get a ticket! I can really recommend this tour:)

I think this was the 3rd time that I took the Old Delhi tour with Delhi by Locals. However, it was the first time that I went with two of my friends from Switzerland. All of us had such a great time! Every time I take this tour I learn more and more. My friends were so impressed with Old Delhi and could understand afterwards why I keep going back and also why with Delhi by Locals. Their guides are just the best out there!
They also helped us in organizing tour guides for us in Varanasi and Agra which was wonderful and made out trip much more memorable!
Thank you for everything Delhi by Locals :-)

We took three tours with Delhi by Locals, and with our guide, Salman. Each was better than the last. We wandered through the markets, zipped around the chaotic streets in a tuk tuk, and watched part of a service in a Sikh temple. Through it all Salman was an informative and engaging guide. With its relentless sensory overload, Old Delhi is not for the faint of heart, but if you decide to brave it (and I suggest you do), you cannot do better than this tour.

We weren't sure about India, as our taxi driver from the airport the night before the tour tried several scams on us. But this tour with Gaurev turned our opinion of India completely around. What a fantastic experience the old Delhi tour was!
I see there are 81 five star reviews and one 4 star. We're starting a campaign to get that one reviewer to switch to five, so Delhi By Locals will have perfection, which is what they are.
