A wonderful excursion in Delhi with a very friendly and well-informed guide Suraj!

Entertaining and eye-opening!
We only had a small amount of time in Delhi so the Old Delhi Walk was the perfect fit with our schedule. We were met at our hotel by Suraj and taken on a cycle rickshaw to the Metro station where we then headed into the Old Delhi bazaar.
It is a crazy, eye-opening experience to see how it all functions. It shouldn't, especially when you see the wiring above you, but it does...somehow.
There is a pulse and energy that is unrivaled and it is fascinating. Unlike bazaar in North Africa and South East Asia you are surprisingly not hassled that much to go in peoples shops which was surprising, they take no for an answer. We went to an old street filled with heritage properties and a Jain (a hindu religion) temple then on to Gurudwara Sisganj Sahib (Sikh temple) which for me was the highlight. We had to take off our shoes and walk barefoot through the water (clean) before entering, we also had a headscarf to cover out head. Inside it was fabulous with music and seeing people pray, we then moved to the soup kitchen where they provide meals for the poor, needy and anybody else 3 times a day 7 days a week, completely run by volunteers and funded by donations people leave in the temple. Fantastic.
We helped make chapattis amidst the steaming cauldrons of food and see them served up.
We then headed to the spice market by auto-rickshaw where you fully get to experience the hair-raising traffic and "give way"/horn blowing system. We then had a late lunch before being returned to our hotel. Suraj was great and informative without being overbearing. Just the right amount of information and answered our questions expertly when asked. We were only taken to one shop specifically with the suggestion to buy something which was to be expected and is common, however it didn't ruin our experience.
Overall it was a great tour and excellent value compared to others and I would recommend. They also have a range of time options so you are able to fit it into your schedule.

Taking good care for traffic and travelling by classic tuk-tuk, modern metro and walking.

Great day around the †temples‡
Sonali was my tour guide for the day. She is lovely and very knowledgeable. She showed me around all the temples and provided me with lots of details of the history of each one of them. The highlights of the trip were the Akshardham temple and the kitchens at Bangla Sahib Sikh temple.

Awesome †Temple‡ †Tour‡
I did a temple tour with Deepak over the weekend and had an awesome time! I learned a lot all the various religions in India and by the end of the tour was able to name and recognize a few Hindu gods! Deepak catered the tour to the information I wanted to know and shared lots of stories with me :) He's incredibly sweet and charming as well! I definitely try another tour when I am in New Delhi again!
