Our second visit to Delhi - and we made sure to contact Vishnu ahead of time to reserve him as our guide again. Not only he is very knowledgeable and extremely flexible, but he is also a wonderful person to spend a long day with: warm, kind, funny, and smart. He created a very personalized, exciting tour that showed us Delhi from many different perspectives. Just can't recommend him high enough.
Vishnu and his driver met us at the nominated hotel right on time and we had a safe and prompt ride to Taj Mahal for an well informed tour of the "Palace" and then the Agra Fort before we were driven to have a fantastic Indian lunch. We ended the tour with some local sight seeing in Delhi. Vishnu is very knowledgeable in what he does and we will certainly book another tour with him the next time we visit Delhi again. I would strongly recommend him to my friends when they visit Delhi.

My two children and I thoroughly enjoyed our Delhi/Golden Triangle tour with Vishnu and driver Gajji. They make an excellent team and really took great care of us for the 5 days we spent with them. Little details like plentiful cold water and snacks for the kids were much appreciated. We always felt safe and comfortable in the hot June weather. Vishnu is a wealth of knowledge about the history and architecture of the sights we saw. Great tour!
Michael RossmanUnited States
Vishnu was a fantastic guide. Generous with his time, incredibly intelligent, loves to tell stories that help you understand the rich history of India, and was so professional. It couldn't get better than that - I highly recommend him. He had a great driver too, clean vehicle, AC worked great and provided lots of bottled water. Thanks much!

We spent a fabulous day in New Delhi with Vishnu. He was friendly, knowledgable and was happy to do whatever we liked. We ended our full day tour with a stop by a street barber where my husband got a cut and shave. I would highly recommend Vishnu.
Aimee CardwellUnited States
Vishnu was an excellent guide. He worked with me to learn what I really wanted to see in my one day of touring, and he accommodated beautifully! He also agreed to start very early so we could get more done. We saw so much! Taj Mahal, two temple visits, Old Delhi, and some other surprises I won't name so as to not spoil them. This experience is exactly what I was hoping for when I booked with Tours By Locals - a guide who was truly local, and who could customize the trip for me. Thanks Vishnu!
Bob ShulmanUnited States
Vishnu was an absolutely outstanding guide! His historical and religious knowledge made Delhi come alive. His passion for the city and his country was self-evident. He structured the tours directly to our interests and ability in the hot Indian sun. I would certainly recommend him to anyone travelling to Delhi.
Leslie SchaeferUnited States
If you are looking for a completely informed, kind, spiritual and engaging tour guide for New Delhi and the surrounding areas be sure to hire Vishnu. We have been over 60 private tours and an additional 50 group tours. Vishnu is at the top of the list. He simply could not have been better. Along with his long time driver the combination of the two made the tour a wonderful and efficient experience.
Vishnu was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, a natural storyteller plus he was funny and charming. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Shelly DansieUnited States
We traveled the Golden Triangle with Vishnu. Our experience was so great that we are already planning our next tour with him. The tour was: well organized, thoughtful (he included cultural experiences, education, history), very safe, on time and well prepared. I was especially impressed with his personal skills. He took a lot of care to ensure that we were happy everyday with our tour. We had great conversations (his English is perfect). We are extensive travelers and this has been our best tour ever!
Simon FurseUnited Kingdom
We thought Vishnu was excellent. We'd been to Delhi last year and so had seen many of the main sites. But Vishnu did a great job of tailoring the day to our requirements. He clearly has a first class knowledge of Delhi's tourist attractions and made visiting these particularly interesting by captivating stories about their historical inhabitants - their lives and religious beliefs. He was never stumped by additional questions we asked him about these and the building themselves. Very highly recommended
Adam ParmerUnited States
Great tour! Vishnu was an amazing host and guide. Would highly recommend!
A wonderful insight into India it's culture history and people. A special programme tour designed by our guide to meet our needs was magnificently executed with care and attention. The driver's excellent and safe driving in what to us was new experience of busy traffic made it a perfect experience. Vishnu our guide excelled in the way he cared for us. Attending every detail with a smile and respect to be complemelted. He made us feel part of his family he was intelligenthe well spoken and very sincere
Leigh Russell-HaleUnited Kingdom
This guy is amazing! What a lovely man! He made the whole of the tour so enjoyable and we loved being in his company. He certainly knows his stuff! We would sincerely recommend Vishnu and give him full marks! He is a top guide!
The guide accepted my last minute booking and did the best to make me visiting as many attractions as possible (I was available late so many places were closed). Treated me like a friend and being a woman alone traveler I felt safe. I also had shopping and great help with local language. If you are looking for a trip where expert person is taking care of plans and of you, this is the best choice.
Stephen ChienUnited States
Vishnu is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. His passion for India comes through! I had a great time visiting the Taj Mahal and Agra, and Vishnu's storytelling made the tour fantastic.

Best guide ever! We had an amazing day in Agra! Vishnu is extremely knowledgable about the history of India and is passionate about sharing that with others. He is a wonderful person. Thank you for your time and that great experience ;)

Vishnu is a wonderful guide and a great story teller. The way he weaves the history into the story makes it come alive.
LaToya RiggsSAVANNAH, GA, United States
Vishnu was absolutely amazing! He was very informative and patient. Out trip would have not been the same without Vishnu and his wonderful driver.
Excelent Tour around Delhi! Great places to go, see and experimet. Vishnu is an amazing guide, super friedly and nice to talk with. He explained every single place not only with full of details and historic information, but with pasion. I can tell he loves teaching people about the city and its culture. I will definitely take another tour with him if I get the chance. Itinerary was cutomized to meet my expectcions. He stayed with me the entire time. Car and driver were perfect. Thank you so much Vishnu!
Peter BerkeryUnited States
Wow ... words can't describe what a fantastic guide Vishnu was -- warm, interesting, knowledgeable, accommodating. He is a special soul. Tours By Locals: you need to add a lot more stars if you want us to accurately rate Vishnu!
Greg StuartUnited States
We had a nice day tour with Vishnu and his driver Gajgu, who is from the Rajasthan area. I hope I spelled his name correctly. They picked us up on time at our designated pickup point in a nice comfortable vehicle. We were extremely busy seeing everything we wanted to see on our one day tour of Delhi. I would hire them again for a personal tour to the Golden Triangle area of India if I get back there and would highly recommend these gentlemen for any tours that they offer of Delhi as well.
Our guide Vishnu was amazing! His attention to details and vast knowledge was very impressive. We were well taken care of. He brought our tour to life for us. He was very easy to understand. His driver navigated the ever changing traffic and got us to our destinations safely. Vishnu made a point of letting us experience India. We shared Marsala tea with the locals and saw how the locals lived. Our only regret was our time in India was too short. We hope to return and will definitely be looking for Vishnu
We really loved agra and taj mahal... amazing place...
Had an amazing time, very nice guide gave us a great tour... thank you
Vishnu was an excellent guide for our party of 9. He was very informative and helpful with his insights on everyday life in Delhi. He took us to the sights we wanted to see and did not rush us at any time.
Peter MartinUnited States
Excellent guide and a wonderful experience in Delhi. My wife and I booked a full day tour with Vishnu. He did an excellent job of showing us both the history and culture of the city and we would recommend him to any tourists traveling to Delhi. His English is excellent, he is a great communicator and responds promptly to emails, and his car was very new, clean, and comfortable. We particularly appreciated how he arranged the tour and sights we saw based on our own interests.
Mark LaidlawUnited Kingdom
Wow! Vishnu gave me the best possible start to my Indian adventure with this tour. Vishnu is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly and I can't rate him highly enough. Sitting beside the Taj Mahal listening to him explain the history of both the King and the building was such a special moment which I'll never forget, 5 stars isn't enough. If you're looking for a guide in India choose Vishnu.
Jeff BradesUnited Kingdom
Vishnu is a warm, well informed and enthusiastic guide who makes it his mission to ensure that your tour is full of interest and fun plus being completely aligned to what you would like to get from the experience. He isn't one of these guides who takes everyone on the same route every day, he listens to what you want to see and experience and makes sure he then comes up with an itinerary that fit those expectations. You'll not regret choosing Vishnu.

Patrick McGrathUnited States
Vishnu knew the people at the monuments which enabled us to bypass the lines. That was a big help considering our limited time in Delhi. He is a very knowledgeable, experienced guide and his english is very good, so i did not need to struggle to understand. Lunch was fantastic and the best meal of my entire visit to India. Another bonus: his family is originally from Kashmir, so he knows about pashmina and was able to help me buy a real one for my wife. I will definitely hire Vishnu again.
Ferdinand MedinaVigan, ILOCOS SUR, Philippines
Vishnu is a world class guide! He is very knowledgeable on the history and description of sites we have visited. We were immersed in the Diwali festival with a local family,praying in their altar, trying on their sari, snacks, tea, viewing fireworks And how they share food w/ relatives and neighbors. The restaurants were carefully chosen by Vishnu and all served delicious food. He gave special attention for our safety, convenience and enjoyment. He is also multilingual. We highly recommend him!
This was my first visit to India and for sure not the last one. Together with my partner Milly, who picked Vishnu as our Guide, we went to Delhi. We were concerned about reliability, safety, the quality and treatment of this company. Well from the first moment at the Airport, the request for airport pick up was a last minute one, we felt home, safe and relaxed. It was then possible to enjoy our trip to the fullest. Three days with the Guide and two days with the driver. Thanks Vishnu, Anil and Gadju.
Iris FranklinUnited States
I asked Vishnu for a "tour that not all tourists see". He more than delivered. We went places where there were absolutely no tourists as well as a great restaurant. He is very professional, informative and open to share his experiences and beliefs if asked. He made our day in India very memorable and special. His drivers were also very good and it made our visits to locations very easy. It was an honor to spend a day with him. Don't miss out! You won't be disappointed.
Vishnu is very knowledgeable about North India, he curious learner. He provided great overview about city and how history of different monuments and cities around Delhi are related. He is efficient route planner - so that everyone spends more time seeing monuments and places of interest (not on roads and traffic). We had wonderful time in Delhi and Vishnu played instrumental role in providing us with the great experience of the city. Will highly recommend Vishnu.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Sabharwal for your kind words. I really appreciate it. It was a great day with you Sir. Even I learned a lot from you Sir. I'll be happy to have you again on my tour. Thank you so much Sir....!!
Nekia LeeUnited States
Vishnu was an excellent tour guide! Very knowledgeable and he'll show you the real New Delhi, not just the tourists attractions! It was an absolutely amazing tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ms. Lee for your kind words. I really appreciate it. It was a great day with you in Delhi. I hope to see you again in India someday. Thank you so much Dear.
Branton CampbellUnited States
Vishnu was great. Though I had only one evening free (a long DEL airport layover), he met me at the airport, took me into the city on the express train (15 minutes), and customized an action-packed evening tour that included everything I hoped to see. He speaks excellent English and was attentive to my interests. And he seems to know the sites and religions and cultures of Delhi like the back of his hand. Excellent value!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Campbell for your kind words. It was my pleasure to be your tour guide in my city. I'm looking forward to meet you again but this time with campbell family. Thank you so much.
Joy SavilleUnited Kingdom
What an excellent guide Vishnu is. I had been to Delhi before but he took my friend and myself to some really interesting places that we would never have found ourselves. He was very patient with us asking questions and as I cannot walk very far he looked after me very well. The car and driver were super also. I wish we had had more time for him to take faster afield but we only had one day in Delhi, perhaps another time! I cannot rate Vishnu highly enough, choose him and you will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Namaste Thank you so much for your kind words, it's make me more confident for what I do. I really appreciate it. It was a great day with you and Miss Kay. You were very kind to me and our driver. I'm looking forward to see you both again in India. Thank you so much
Daniel SimmonsUnited States
Vishnu was an enthusiastic guide and a very knowledgable raconteur -- he took me on a whirlwind evening tour of the city that took in a variety of sights, sounds, and tastes which I will never forget. He was also very flexible, given the variables of traffic and weather that sometimes make traveling around the city a challenge. I highly recommend Vishnu's services if you find yourself with a day or two in Delhi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Simmons for your kinds words, it makes me more confidant. It was a great day with you. I would like to work again with you in the future. Thank you so much Vishnu S

Rosanna KingUnited Kingdom
I will treasure this wonderful experience forever! From the moment Vishnu greeted me at the airport, his calm and respectful friendliness put me at ease. He took me on an exciting adventure around the city - to places I would never have dreamed of going to, and allowed me an insiders experience of Delhi that I couldn't have enjoyed without him. Vishnu taught me so much. His driver was excellent and I valued the comfort and the A/C! When I said 'Namaskar' to Vishnu, it felt like saying goodbye to a friend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ms. King for lovely words. It was a great day with you and even I learn a lot from you. You were so friendly and kind to me and Driver. Hope to see you in India again. Thank you so much
