Vishnu was an excellent guide. He was waiting for us ahead of the agreed time, and we discussed the itinerary before heading off for the day.He read the mood of the group and joined in the fun. It was like having a knowledgeable and well connected friend with you.I can’t recommend him more highly.Our top tip would be that Delhi workday traffic can be terrible so Sunday’s is a great day to tour with less stress.Vishnu loves sweet things so confectionery from around the world would be a great gift for him.

I would unreservedly recommend Vishnu. I'd been to Delhi before and seen most main sights, so Vishnu prepared an alternative tour that took me to some lesser known, but interesting monuments. More importantly, he made sure that I got to see the real Delhi, where and how normal people live. He was kind enough to show me around his own neighbourhood. Unlike previous tours, Vishnu did not attempt to gain commissions by taking me to tourist shops or workshops. Vishnu's own life also is a fascinating story!

Tour: #342004, India's Golden Triangle Tour With Ranthambore & Rajasthan ( 11 NIGHTS / 12 DAYS ), New Delhi, Delhi, India    view tour
Date: Feb 11/20

If you are looking at a tour with Vishnu, all I can say is don't look elsewhere and book with him. My wife and I spent 12 days together, along with his driver - Mr G on a personalised tour of Delhi, Agra, Ranthambore, Bundi (amazing), Jaipur and Mandawa (beautiful). One thing we quickly came to understand is that Vishnu and G treat your like family as guests in their country. Their hospitality was warm and they were always looking out for us as many other guides look to make commission at your expense.

Vishnu was amazing! His breadth of knowledge of Old & New Delhi is incredible. Not only did he provide a comprehensive tour of both with all the highlights/monuments, he took the time to truly get to know us and what types of things were of interest to us. One of the unexpected highlights of the tour was a surprise stop at a step well. Vishnu realized that we really liked historical sites and decided an impromptu stop was in order. Absolutely breathtaking! Highly recommend Vishnu for all your tour needs.

Vishnu was an excellent guide—knowledgeable, flexible but reliable, considerate of my limitations, helpful, and generous. He also is interesting in his own right, outgoing, worth talking to.

My family spent two full weeks traveling around India. We worked with many agencies and tour guides. I can very easily say Vishnu was the most interesting person we met in our trip. Not only was he very knowledgeable on all things cultural and historical, he was also a pleasure to be with. Wicked smart and very warm he made our Delhi visit much more joyful and enjoyable. Even if it's just passing the day chatting with Vishnu I would not miss his company for a second.

He is so knowledgeable, so upbeat and enthusiastic that learning about Indian culture, history and some great back-stories was never boring, and always intriguing! He knows amazing stuff that you'll never learn on the internet! The Delhi smog news kept the travel "light weights" away.. it was never a problem this past week. The news channels make out that it is much worse than it really is. We will be back, for sure, and he's our guide for the whole trip, not just a couple of days!

WOW. What can I say. We booked Vishnu for the end of our four weeks in India/Bhutan. We should have booked him at the start! Not only is he and his background extremely interesting, he managed to take two very tired travellers and show them areas and communities in Delhi which provided us with a totally different perspective to what we ad already seen. We also would have saved a lot of money had we known what prices were considered reasonable for goods and services. Dhanyavaad Vishnu. Our best wishes!!!!!

Vishnu nous a aidé déjà dans la préparation du voyage. Puis pendant 10jours, il a été notre guide, notre ami, notre grand frère, et a su créer des liens très forts entre nous. Vishnu et Gee, le chauffeur, sont 2 personnes formidables! Un duo génial qui s'est occupé de nos enfants comme des leurs, nous a fait entrer dans leurs vies, nous a promené en toute sécurité, nous a fait découvrir des endroits et des gens fantastiques. Merci Vishnu et Gee pour ces moments forts et souvenirs gravés!

The experience was great. Vishnu is an amazing person and guide. He is specialized in Northern India. He is very knowledgeable, and have a great skill to share the right amount of information. The car was in perfect shape and the driver JI was kind, responsible and attentive.

Vishnu. Thank you so much for the extended tour of Dehli. We were exceptionally satisfied with your choice of places to visit. You made our tour life changing with your intellegence, humour and humilty. You gave us a deep insite into New and Old Dehli and overloaded us with information and history that was real and moving. Your personal life stories added depth and meaning as you are truly an amazing and unique person. We paid for a few hours and got a fully packed day. Thank you and Mr G. Friendsx

Vishnu, we love you. You are an exceptional human being with an amazing life story. You are very humble about your intellegence and knowledge which makes you unique. Your humour added fun and your willingness to go the extra mile to accommodate our wishes made our trip wonderous. Your stories made the Taj Mahal very real and a moving experience. Your life is so different from ours and we thank you for being the man you are (give our love to Mr G). I wish you could come and visit us. Friends forever.

Vishnu gave us an amazing experience. He set up our tour beautifully, with a mix of the well-known monuments and less known but equally spectacular sites. He has a deep knowledge of India's history, cultures and religions. At crowded sites, he maneuvered us to interesting spots, overlooked by most. Jee, his driver partner, is very professional. He navigated through traffic and road hazards smoothly and safely with a friendly smile. With Vishnu and Jee you couldn't have a better time in India!

I travel extensively and honestly, my tour of Delhi with Vishnu and driver G was the best tour I've ever done. I care about experiences more than monuments. We drove past the monuments and stopped at the large mosque on the edge of Old Delhi. Then we took at bicycle tuk tuk through the narrow alleyways of the old town, stopping at various places. Best for me was the visit into the kitchen of the largest Sikh temple, that feeds 30,000 daily. It was simply humbling. I highly recommend Vishnu and G! Great!

I was very happy to spend 2 days with Vishnu and his driver. Vishnu was sensitive to my preferences and very flexible. His story telling was very nice and interesting. I felt safe and very well taken care of everywhere. I am more than pleased with the services and intend to come back to India for other trips organized by Vishnu. I would rate him 5 stars - it couldn't have been better.

Quite simply the best tour guide in Delhi. Professional, knowledgeable, passionate and most importantly flexible. We loved the 'off the beaten track' stuff but equally if you want more tourist attractions then they will make that happen as well. They were also great with our two young children. Highly recommended.

Thanks for guiding us through India for 2 weeks. We loved seeing the highlights but still getting off the tourist trail and visiting your friends for home cooked meals and local experiences. You went out of your way to ensure our Indian bucket list was ticked off. Thanks for setting us up with a tailor and introducing us to Masala tea! Our highlight was seeing tigers mating at Ranthambore National Park! We thankyou for making our stay in India such a memorable one. You and driver G are a great team!

Vishnu was a fantastic tour guide. He was able to reflect my wishes fully rather than running a predefined tour. He was as well flexible to any last minute changes on my side. The most I liked the fact that he was not push-selling any "friendly" shops. He was also very friendly, a great companion to talk to. I really enjoyed our time together. If you are interested - ask Vishnu about his personal story, it is fantastic.

I had limited time in Delhi and had high ambition to see as much as possible. Vishnu was great to help me with it. The tour was adjusted specifically for me. We visited a lot of beautiful and interesting places. I got really impressed by Delhi, I had a great day. Vishnu is well-educated, great story teller, enthusiastic and kind. We had lunch in a good place. Recommended!

Vishnu was an excellent host, enthusiastically sharing his vast knowledge of Delhi with us during a full day tour. His driver was also excellent, weaving his way through the crazy Delhi traffic with ease. Vishnu was very accommodating to our needs, and adapted the tour to suit what we wanted to see. Walking around old Delhi, visiting the Sikh template and kitchen that feeds 20000 people each day were particular highlights. We would strongly recommend Vishnu as a tour guide within Delhi!
