Fantastic tour around Delhi to some sights I would have never found or been confident to get too. Great way to get confidence with local transport including the metro and tuk tuk. Our guide Sam was exceptional and very knowledgeable. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Delhi.

There are a lot of sites to see in Delhi. With limited time we decided the best way to see and learn about as many sites as possible was to book a guide. I had read about this well established tour company and the good work they do in the Lonely Planet guide, therefore decided to book a one day customised tour. Our guide was Sam and he did a fantastic job of taking us to a diverse range of places and keeping us safe. Although we could have done many of the sites alone, Delhi is an extremely busy city and having Sam with us allowed us to use the time most efficiently. We also benefited from Sam’s local knowledge of history, culture and religion. If you are in Delhi then I recommend you book a tour with this company as it will make site seeing far less stressful, you will learn lots and will likely enable you to see more.

Our first day in Delhi started of very good. To get to know this busy and huge city, I would certainly recommend doing a tour. And not any kind of tour, reality tours & travels offer kind guides, great places to visit, to get to know the culture, the different religion and they explain how this city with that many people can even work out. The profits go to their NGO, so by booking a tour with them, you help many more people than yourself. Would highly recommend!!

Reality Tours and Travel was recommended to us by our neighbours who have done various India tours with them 7 or 8 times over the years and have developed a strong friendship with the founder of the company, Krishna Pujari. My wife, I and a friend were incredibly lucky to actually have Krishna himself as our guide for 3 sublime weeks. India had never featured on our radar as a travel destination previously. It's a huge country of 1.3 billion people. It seemed so daunting. Delhi is a heaving cauldron of masses of people, rickshaws, scooters, motorbikes, cars...and don't forget the cows wandering through the mayhem. You can, of course, plan your own India trip and negotiate your own travel arrangements but it is just so much easier to use Reality Tours guides and simply relax knowing that your valuable time is spent enjoying the sights instead of frustrating yourself with directions and how to get from one place to another. I don't enjoy haggling with rickshaw, taxi drivers and shopkeepers. Time is too precious. Reality Tours guides take the hassle out of India travel. They know the cities. They know the sights. They know the routes. They know the fares. They also know the value of anything you might want to purchase from street traders and shops and will ensure you're not ripped off. For 3 wonderful weeks Krishna guided us first through Delhi, then onto Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaipur and Agra and then onto Kathmandu, Chitwan and Pokhara in Nepal. Nepal didn't do it for us and we wished we'd spent that week instead seeing more of India. It's hard to describe just how invigorating India is: the vibrant colours, the noise, the mayhem, the beauty...and the people. What became so evident during our tour is that India's people, being majority Hindu, are gentle and quite special. Because of their Hindu roots, crime is not an issue in India. We never once felt threatened, unsafe or uncomfortable. Krishna was not the only guide on our tour. Parts of our tour were joined by other Reality Tours guides either for training purposes or to introduce us to other guides who had a more in depth knowledge of a particular area. All these guides were fabulous and we' developed friendships with some like Raj who we hope to see again. We were told that we'd inevitably get "Delhi-belly" travelling India for 3 weeks. We were well-stocked with anti diarrhoea tabs...which we never got to use. Cautioned by our guides against drinking anything other than bottled water or carbonated drinks and raw foods that might have been washed in dodgy water, all of us enjoyed the fabulous foods of India without any issues. What a pleasure to wander the crazy markets and backroads and stop to marvel at street food cooked on massive cauldrons and pans and then have our guide purchase the delights for us to sample over and over again in each new exciting destination. Where we'd normally be hesitant in trying the street-food, Krishna made it a joy. Travel in cities was a mix of rickshaws, taxi and metro. All of the uncertainty is removed. We simply followed our guides. Between cities transport was a mix of train, plane (to and from Nepal) and car...all arranged and paid for by our guides as part of the tour price. Accommodation was a mix of budget and fancy hotels, home stays and lodges - all very comfortable and charming. I could write a book extolling the virtues of Reality Tours & Travel. Highlights? The vibrancy The street-food Wandering the streets soaking up the atmosphere The Delhi slum tour Cooking class in Udaipur with Shashi Watching the latest Bollywood blockbuster movie in perhaps the best cinema in the world The home-stays The occasional evening meals shared by visiting a local family The extraordinary forts The amazing temples Reality Tours guides...with whom you will inevitably develop lasting friendships If we'd visited India independently I feel sure we would have been daunted, frustrated and overwhelmed. With your hand held by Reality Tours & Travel guides it's impossible to come away from India without a deep understanding of the people, the history, the culture, the food and Hinduism. We've had the very good fortune to have travelled all of Europe, holidayed in Mexico, lived in Australia, South Africa, Canada and France...yet India has absolutely captivated us...so much so that we're already planning our next trip with Reality Tours. Thank you Krishna, our friend....and thank you Raj.

Great tour which covered lots of the must sees in Delhi with a very experienced guide. His English was fantastic and he was very knowledgeable. We moved around the city by tuk tuk, bus, metro, the guide anticipated every next move and offered great advice. He even suggested an itinerary of things to see and how to get to them for our free time in the city. We are so pleased we did the tour and would recommend it a day very well spent to anyone. Thank you

Excellent and jam-packed introduction to Delhi. Naresh was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and well-spoken. He was able to tailor the tour to our interests and went above and beyond to ensure we got the most out of the day. We chose Reality for three of our day tours in India and I can’t recommend them enough. Their innovative and socially responsible approach to tourism is refreshing and truly enriches the experience in more ways than one.

Myself and my husband spent the day touring around Delhi with Sam, who was a great tour guide. This was our first full day in Delhi and having a tour guide to help us navigate around the main tourist attractions and through the busy metro stations etc was very useful. Sam looked out for us throughout the day to ensure we were comfortable and weren't harassed etc. We also went to a local restaurant to try some Indian food and Sam gave some good recommendations. Sam was a relaxed, chilled guy which suited us both well. The only slight downside is we waited around a little to find suitable transport/rickshaw before going to the next destination, however, it's understandable that haggling is part of the experience and some rickshaws have area limitations etc.

SAM was really great ! Nothing to say more than ! THANK YOU ! ! ! Continue in this way ! Was a pleasure to be with you.

My husband and I booked this private tour during our first visit in Delhi and we could not be more happy! The tour was very well planned and gave us interesting insights in the everyday life of people in Delhi. Our guide Naresh was very competent and could answer every question we had (and we had a lot of questions! :-D ). And most importantly, he was very sympathetic and flexible. He adjusted the tour to our needs, as my husband injured his foot the day before and could not walk a lot. So we took Tuktuk a bit more frequent. So happy we didn’t miss the tour and we definitely recommend it to everyone who is interested in the insights from the local!
