After extensive research we decided to book with Magic Tours for our six week journey of North and South India.
They provided us with ideas for our itinerary which we adjusted to suit ourselves and found them very patient and helpful as we had made many adjustments for our personalised tour of India.

Throughout our six weeks of touring we were met by our guides and driver in every city we visited without any delay or problems. We had our driver Balvinder for three weeks in the north and highly recommend him as he was a very kind and caring person who always made each day a great adventure and greeted us with big smile every morning and most importantly was a safe driver. Balvinder went above and beyond as our driver helping us to navigate Indian Railways putting us on the correct overnight train to Varanasi which can be very daunting.

In Varanasi we again were met by Magic Tours representative and taken to our hotel.
Late afternoon our guide Manoj met us at our hotel and we had an amazing two day tour of the holy city seeing it through the eyes of a local and recommend asking for Manoj as your guide.

Flight to Chennai with Indigo was on time and bags arrived as well. We were met by our lovely driver Rejeesh for the southern leg of our journey. Again Rejeesh was very accomodating, safe driver and he made our time in the south a fun and memorable one and again very happy to recommend Rejeesh as your driver.

We would highly recommend MAGIC TOURS for your next Indian adventure.

We booked our tour through Magic Tours for the Golden Triangle tour (Delhi-Agra-Jaipur), and just got to say hands down the best experience I've had with any tour company. Ranjeet was who we've worked with and he was able to customize our tour based on our special requirements for guests departing early, having late additions for guests, and also to accommodate for our request to end the tour a day early as we had flights booked which flew out in the late evening. Every detail was so carefully planned and punctual, we didn't have to worry any time during the trip. Even before we met up with Gaurav, our trip guide who accompanied us throughout the whole duration of the trip, we were given clear instructions on where to meet him and what to do in case of any emergencies or couldn't find him.

Our group of 22 was definitely not an easy task to handle, so we got to give a lot of praise to Gaurav, our tour lead, for being support flexible and making sure that everything is clear and on time, and also accommodating to our group's needs. We definitely had a lot of differing opinions with 22 people, but he helped us make the best decisions and be able to accommodate when we decided to split the groups!

In Delhi, we went around the Qutb Tomb, Humayun's tomb and Lodi Gardens, and had lunch at Chandi Chowk, our guide was super informative and also did a great job in telling us the history and stories of how the different rulers had created the different palaces and area that we went to visit.

I would definitely recommend Magic Tours as a company to use if you want to have a stress-free vacation especially if you've never been around India before and have never experienced how chaotic it can be. Magic Tours definitely gave us a big piece of mind and also gave us a great time enjoying and understanding the colorful culture and cuisine of India!

Completed a tour with the lovely Nidhi and Magic Tours in Jaipur. This was the second time we have toured with Nidhi, we first met in December 2017 when we completed a full-day tour with her.
This time we completed a walk through the bazaar in the pink city. Starting late afternoon, we wandered through the narrow lanes of the bazaar and being a Saturday, it was extremely busy. Nidhi provided us with commentary about the different shops and stallholders as we meandered through the different sections – weddings, jewellery, kitchenware etc. We stopped for a Chai at a well-known ‘safe’ Chai stall and also walked past the flower market before we took a rickshaw to an old part of the city. From here we walked around the back streets of Jaipur and witnessed how the local’s live and work. Really interesting and definitely off the tourist track. Nidhi’s English and knowledge of Jaipur are excellent and she knows everything about the beautiful ‘pink’ city. If you haven’t been to Jaipur before or have been before but would like to see a different aspect of Jaipur, would highly recommend booking a tour with Nidhi and Magic Tours.

Magic India’s suggestion of Chambal Safari Lodge was excellent. The accommodation and food were very good and the staff were very welcoming. The best part were the safaris with our guide Hariom. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and gave us more than we hoped to experience.
Bharatpur was also up to our expectations and our well informed guide Mahendra Singh introduced us to the excitement of Keoladeo National Park. Our accommodation at the Bagh was comfortable and welcoming.
We had suggested the visit to Ranthambhore National Park but this was disappointing for us after the great experiences of the first two stops. The visits to the National Park were affected by school groups in our vehicles with neither students, staff or guides interested in anything but finding tigers which was unlikely due to the noise levels they created! The hotel in Ranthambhore Shergarh Resort and staff were exceptional in their efforts to make us comfortable and well fed.
Our travel to these destinations with Roop Singh as our driver was very special! He is such a good and careful driver and an excellent companion! We could not have asked for a better experience than travelling with him.

I planned a trip to India and Nepal with Delhi Magic in October/November 2020. Working closely with Deepa and Ranjeet, they developed an outstanding 3-week private tour at a very fair price. Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic it in March of 2020 and we had to postpone our trip for one year. With the COVID pandemic still raging in the spring of 2021, especially in India, my wife and I felt it was prudent to cancel our planned trip since we did not know when travel in India would be possible again. Deepa was very understanding and agreed to refund my full deposit. Due to antiquated banking laws, Deepa found it impossible to refund my deposit through normal channels. She had to become very creative but in the end, my deposit was refunded. Delhi Magic demonstrated their honesty and integrity throughout the process. I will not hesitate to contact Deepa and Ranjeet when it is feasible to travel to India. Unlike a number of tour operators I dealt with in Colombia who refused to refund money, Delhi Magic focused on customer satisfaction and doing the right thing. They are to be commended.

I signed up with Delhi Magic tours for 3 days in May 2022, ranging from a day trip to Agra to the various sights in Delhi. I had good tours with all the guides. They were friendly, highly knowledgable and engaging. I also engaged Delhi Magic to visit the Elephant and Bear rescue centres. These two visits are highly educational and are an eye opener. It is recommended!

Also, a shout out to my driver, Dharmender. He is punctual, drives safely, friendly and prepares ample supplies of bottled water for all the tours, which is appreciated in the hot season.

Last but not least, thanks to Ranjeet for arranging the tours smoothly and being prompt in all the replies.

I had a good experience with Delhi Magic and will engage Magic tours on my next visit to India again.

We used Delhi Magic Tours to travel from Delhi to Agra and back to visit the Agra fort, Taj Mahal by moonlight and the Taj Mahal in the day time.

The experience with Magic tour and their local guides and reps in Agra was excellent. They were very responsive to every needs, would answer our calls immediately, had everything set-up very well and solved a pressing issue when it came up as a result of a train delay due to the monsoons.

Ranjit, the professional tour guide was friendly, knowledgable and very patient with our large group during the tours. He also took some excellent photos for us.
Kishan, who received us at the train station and saw us off was also very friendly, helpful and reacted very well to our request to address the lat train departure from Agra as I mention below.

Since we had a flight to catch from Delhi, we could not afford to be late by the booked train - the Kerela express from Agra to Delhi. On the way to the station we learned that the train was 5 hours late. During the ride itself, magic tours, along with Kishan was able to provide us a very comfortable tempo travellor to take our group of 8 people to Delhi via road. This on the spot resolution of an urgent problem was highly reflective of the companies focus on ensuring a high quality trip for the group.

Finally, the company hired a very good driver in Mahesh Chand, who not only drove us around locally, but also drove us to Delhi in the Travello.

All in all, very highly recommend Delhi Magic Tours as a company to use for your tourist activities.

My wife and I did a food tour of Old Delhi through Delhi magic and it ended up being our favorite thing from our trip to India.
We saw a few sights as we walked and tuk-tuk'd from shop to market to shop to temple, etc. We tasted breads, sweets, Channa Masala, Lassi, Samosas, and the best Masala Chai of my life from all over old Delhi. And it was a very personal tour, just me, my wife, and our guide. He had a lot of wonderful stories and interesting info about the temples, shops, foods, and markets we passed through. I highly recommend the experience, especially if you are interested in authentic Indian food.

We have just got back to London after an amazing trip with Delhi magic from Delhi to Agra . We just wanted to thank you ther organisation and for Mr. Ranjeet who is excellent with the logistics abnd email response times..
Both the driver provided (Mr. Sonu ) and the guide Sunil were extraordinary. The driver could not have been more punctual and conscientious with his driving and was there any time we needed 1him Mr. Sunil was also exemplary. He was so knowledgeable and kind, happy to change the itinerary to suit us, and even came for an extra visit to the Taj early morning on the last day when he did not need to. Thank you again for all your assistance in making our trip so memorable.

My wife, daughter and I went on a tour of Rajasthan, Agra and Delhi in January 2023. My wife had already created an itinerary/ wishlist, but we wanted to hire a car and driver for the trip. That is how we got directed to Delhi Magic in the first place. From the website, we found out that they also offer local guides in many of the places we were planning to visit, so we signed up for some of their guided tours as well.

Every aspect of the trip was just wonderful! To start with, Deepa Krishnan helped us refine our itinerary a bit as our initial plans were somewhat ambitious for the time we had! She and Ranjeet also arranged local guides who were not only knowledgeable about the places we visited but also took very good care of us in terms of advising on places to eat/shop etc. They also adjusted the itineraries to our tastes, spending more time in places that appealed to us and cutting down on things in which we were less interested.

We took guided tours in Jodhpur (with Harsh Vardhan), Jaipur (with Nidhi Mishra), Agra (with Shefali) and Delhi (with Punam Gulati). All of them were excellent, and related the history of the places we visited in a very engaging way. There is a tendency amongst some local guides to embellish the history, but we valued the more restrained approach of our guides, who restricted themselves to established facts, but nevertheless managed to bring the stories to life. Their presence greatly enriched our visit to these cities. Finally, a big thank you to our driver, Mahipal, who negotiated the challenging roads and long drives with good humour. He was always on time, drove safely and, on the one occasion that our daughter was unwell, stopped frequently to make her journey more comfortable. All of them contributed to making this a truly memorable trip!
