My children and I had an excellent morning with Dhruv. We were able to see, taste and experience Old Delhi like a local. Food was delicious and sanitary. Best Lassi ever! The home cooked meal at Dhruv's havelli was outstanding and one of the best meals of our trip. We had experiences that would not have been possible without the expertise and knowledge of a life long Old Delhi reaident. I highly recommend this experience. It is much more than a tour!
