    Gajendra was an excellent guide. Arriving early & very informative. He planned our holiday to our requirements. He took us to his lovely family home to meet his family and his wife applied henna to my arm on the way to Pushkar. I can’t rate gajendra highly enough. Excellent. 

  • Juan Pablo

    I went to Delhi and I really enjoy the city with Gajendra.

    He prepared a very complete tour and shared a lot of his knowledge taking care of all the details on the tour.

    Responsible, serious, trustful and highly efficient.

    Really a good choice for a tour guide.

  • Amol Kadam

    I took his services for two days. Gajendra was very punctual and was always on time to attend to our itinerary.  His choice places for sightseeing and meals were very well planned. He was presentable and had good information about all the places we visited. I would surely recommend him to everyone who is looking to explore Delhi. He knows Delhi and surrounding areas as only a local would. 

  • Bernhard Szerbinski

    Our Delhi tour with the always friendly guide Mr. Gajendra was amazing and exceeded our expectations. We were picked up at midnight by Mr. Gajendra and his driver directly from the airport and dropped off at the hotel. 

    The pick up for sightseeing from the hotel was always on time. Mr. Gajendra designed a tailor-made tour, including fantastic food. The tours of Delhi were very professional, informal and entertaining.

    We can recommend Mr. Gajendra at any time and without restriction!

    Thanks for the nice and interesting time

    I had the pleasure of having Gajendra as my tour guide.  He was very professional,  polite, spoke excellent English and very educated in the history and how to save time and get the most out of my trip. He attended to my every need with compassion and patience.  He also suggested ways for me to save money.  He is a family man who is genuinely very honest.  I am already planning a trip to go back next year and Gajendra is the only guide I would even think about calling in the future.
