New Delhi Tour Reviews

4.7 - Excellent Based on 171 customer reviews
New Year around Northern India Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Northern India
3 - Average
“This is a fast paced tour around some of the popular tourist sites of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh states. There's a good variety to see, but fog was something of a hindrance on most mornings at this time of year (late December) and resulted in an itinerary change that meant we missed out on Varanasi, but saw the less frequently visited sites of Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur and Mathura instead.”
unexpected let down Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Northern India
3 - Average
“Booked the Golden Triangle trip that went Boxing day and returned January. Knew it was going to be fast paced trip ( had 'done' Egypt some years ago) However, after an overnight flight ( 8 hours - plus the 3 hr before at airport and the hour or so when landed ) found the 5+ hours straight off on 'coach' very tiring.
Jaipur - pink city was good. loved the elephants with their decorations. Taj was good and worth a visit- be prepared for it to be shrouded in mist at this time of year.
Then all went wrong- overnight train cancelled -therefore not go to Varanansi, no trip on Ganges etc. Got put up in disgraceful hotel in Agra on New Years Eve. What a let down - cancelling Varanansi bad enough but better accommodation should have been sought. Alternative itinerary followed.Visit to Bharatpur and Mathura - another game park ( mainly birds ) and various temples. What made it worse was the trip before this one had experienced the same problem and yet no e mail was sent warning us of possibility of change.”

5 - Excellent
“I recently went on the Highlights of Northern India trip. The guide Ajay really looked after us and made the trip run smoothly from start to finish. The group were really friendly and I didn't feel as if I was on holiday alone at all. The itinerary certainly packed a lot in and we got a great overview of the sights to see in these towns. The Taj Mahal was breathtaking and I was so excited to see a tiger in Ranthambore National Park along with so many other animals and birds. This is a trip I will never forget.”
Sights of a lifetime Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Northern India
5 - Excellent
“From the majestic beast that is the Bengal tiger in its natural habitat to the architectural majesty of the Taj Mahal. From chaos-that-works of Delhi traffic to the spiritual calm of sunrise on the Ganges being rowed past the ghats of Varanasi. From demonstrations of handed-down skills of weaving and jewelry making to opportunities for bargain purchases. Truly sights, sounds and memories of a lifetime. And all under the confident and learned leadership of an outstanding guide. Enjoyed with an eclectic but bonding mix of fellow travellers.”

“This trip was exhausting but so worthwhile. I enjoyed it all and would be hard-pressed to select my bets moment because there were so many. I felt that the enjoyment of the holiday was in major part due to the expertise of our guide, Harish Kumar, and also the great mix of people and characters in our group. We all seemed to gel really well and this made the experience even better.”

About New Delhi

New Delhi (population: 18.2 million), the City of Djinns, welcomes you to relics from another era, historic architecture, magnificent colonial constructions, Mughal mausoleums, old-world bazaars and medieval forts. Despite all this, the city also presents glitzy malls, exotic nightclubs, a fast-paced lifestyle and a cosmopolitan experience.

Enigma, Excitement and Above All, Chaos

The Indian capital gets a bad rap for lots of things. Ticking off to-dos and dealing with touts leaves you feeling underwhelmed, but the city also gives you a chance to fall in love with its more rewarding corners such as the Lodi Gardens, Qutb Minar, Red Fort or the Purana Qila. There are all kinds of adventures to experience and things to see while in Delhi. Once you’re done with Mughal architecture, visit the Akshardham or the Lotus Temple, the ideal places to rediscover your lost spirituality. And don’t forget to sharpen your bargaining skills before your shopping expedition to Chandni Chowk.

When to Visit

The ideal time to visit New Delhi is between the months of October to March, when the weather is at its beautiful best. The winters tend to get quite cold, so it is best to carry some warm clothes with you. Delhi summers are scorching hot, so try and stay away from the city during the summer months.

How to Get Around

Although Delhi has an extensive public transportation system, we recommend you to stick to hiring a chauffeur-driven car from a reputed travel agency. Most hotels can also arrange transportation. A cheaper alternative is to use taxi apps such as Uber.

Tours and Activities in New Delhi

Delhi is the current capital of India and the former center of government of colonial Britain as well as the Mughal Empire. It is a massive city with a population of 10 million. It’s crowded and noisy, but it is India and there a many many things that people can enjoy in New Delhi.

Top 3 attractions in New Delhi:

  • Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful monuments the world has ever seen. Combine this spectacular piece of Mughal architecture with the heart-warming love story behind its creation and it attracts millions of people every year. A 3-hour drive from New Delhi is worth the travel to see this massive palace of white marble.
  • The Red Fort (Lal Qila), constructed in 1648, was the residence of Mughal Emperors who ruled India. It still serves a venue for important political events and speeches. The rich architectural styles of the Mughals are on display in this colossal complex’s courts, gardens, baths, mosques, walls, ceilings and roofs.
  • Enjoy the tranquility of Lodi Gardens and get away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi. This 90-acre city park features not only green spaces but also the tombs of several Lodi rulers. These tombs depict the architectural styles of the Lodis who ruled over Delhi during the 15th and 16th centuries AD.

Other things to do and see in New Delhi:

  • Visit local temples dedicated to various Hindu gods and goddesses and gain insight into the impossibly complicated religion of Hinduism. Some notable temples include Akshardham Temple, Bhairo Temple, Sai Baba Temple, ISKCON Temple, Gauri-Shanker Temple, Hanuman Mandir, and the beautifully designed Baha’i Lotus Temple.
  • There is no way one can escape the spicy aroma of North Indian dishes. So, sampling some of these wonderful cuisines is a must-do when you are in Delhi. Whether you choose to go to an up-scale restaurant or eat on the street, make sure you try a few spicy dishes and kill the burn with Delhi’s signature sweets.
  • Go shopping for handicraft, clothing, jewelry, books, textiles and spices in some of the markets around Delhi like Chandni Chowk, Dilli Haat, Central Market at Lazpat Nagar, Janpath and Tibetan Market, the underground Palika Bazaar and Khan Market.
  • Visit the Parliament House - the seat of government of the largest democracy in the world. This incredibly massive circular edifice is half a kilometer in circumference and is ornately designed. Completed in 1927 under the British rule, it has been the center of governance ever since.

The climate of New Delhi:

  • Delhi lies close to the Himalayas as well as the Rajasthani desert so it’s climate is classified as a combination of monsoon-influenced humid subtropical and semi-arid.
  • Summers (April-June) are hot and dry with occasional thunderstorms. Delhi is hit by extremely hot winds (or loo) from the western desert and temperatures can soar up to 45° C or more. Average summertime high is around 40° C and low around 20° C.
  • Winters (December-February) are extremely cold and densely foggy due to the effects of the Himalayas that lie North of Delhi. The winter averages high of around 9° C and low of 0° C. It even though temperatures may plummet below zero, it never snows in Delhi.
  • Monsoon (July-September) marks the season of heavy rainfall and a humid climate. Early Monsoon is fairly hot at around 40°C but the temperatures start to drop below as August approaches, which is also the wettest month of the year.

Currency:

  • The official currency of India is Rupees and some businesses will accept US Dollars, GB Pounds or Euros but the exchange rates may vary markedly from place to place.
  • It is advisable to change currency beforehand or carry a credit card (Visa or MasterCard) that can be used in India.

Whether you are a novice traveler or an experienced one, you will find New Delhi exciting, exhilarating and unique. Plan you trip according to the weather and your tastes and you will not be disappointed by this megalopolis.
