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!

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!

Our group went on a customized Old Delhi food tour in February 2022; it was a fantastic tour. We got to taste the tremendous and safe variety of street food (They listen to your preferences) and experience the spice markets. Delhi by Locals created a fabulous, fun, and well-planned experience. Also, they organized our day trip to Agra in March, visiting the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. They provided us with a terrific guide Mukesh, driver Sandeep; we ate at a great restaurant and had an unforgettable magical experience. HIRE Delhi by locals- I highly recommend this team in Delhi, India. You will not be disappointed, and it will make your trip even more memorable. BONUS, they even picked us up from the airport and dropped us off!!! Thanks again, and we will be back!

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.
