Patricia W
, May 2018
We booked 2 tickets for this for 38 before arriving, expecting to be able to visit several tourist sites each day. The first afternoon we arrived at the office to pick up our tickets at 2pm and were told the last bus left at 1.30. According to the website, the complete circuit takes around 3.5 hours and the tours finish at 6pm. This is obviously incorrect. Traffic in Delhi is horrendous, and locally we were advised not to take this tour but to take a taxi instead. We did so: hire of a taxi for an 8 hour day worked out at 25 for the two of us. We gave the driver a list of places we wanted to visit and he drove us, in a newish comfortable air conditioned vehicle, to all the sites on out list, waited for us while we made our visit and picked us up promptly each time. He was courteous, honest and knew Delhi well. We asked the hotel concierge to find us a taxi not a hotel car, which is expensive. I highly recommend this over the more expensive and less reliable bus tour.

DONT BOOK THIS TOUR. It is a waste...
Stan_A

DONT BOOK THIS TOUR. It is a waste of TIME and MONEY. There are no longer Red and Green routes. Only a Purple combined route. The bus has Kenny G tunes played at full volume with a taped English message played over the music at random intervals. Thetour guide, who barely speaks English, then yells the same phrase over top of Kenny G. The bus does not drive a circle route. And you are stranded at some distant locales because the next bus does not arrive. Terrible. Hire a driver and car from a service or your hotel. You will be much much happier!

Samdee65
, Jun 2017
This was a great way to experience Delhi as we could disembark at places we were most interested in. Having a limited time in New Delhi meant that this was the best option to choose as it covered a wide area and included all the major sights and attractions. Even if you didn't want to get off, you could see a lot by just cruising past, and the commentators pointed out things of interest as they were coming up and advised passengers whether to get off and explore or to stay on til the next point. Very informative. Although the female tour guides were too fast in talking and the intonation sometimes made it hard to pick up what they were saying. Otherwise very enjoyable....I was with my elderly mother and we both found it a great experience.

Heather M
, Mar 2017
I was a bit disappointed with this. The actual bus routes and frequencies were ok but the state of the buses was really depressing - they really needed a thorough clean. All the seats, poles and windows felt quite grimy. The pick up/drop off at Dilli Haat was not very well identified at all and I lost all sense of where we were supposed to meet.

This is the best way to see New Delhi. We saw more of the city in one day than we expected. We stopped at recommended locations and enjoyed every minute. Each bus had someone explaining the stops and made sure we did not miss anything as well as providing an escape from the heat and hustle and bustle of Delhi life.
