Review of India Food Tour – Private Tour

Standard

““Organized tour – Golden Triangle & Hill Stations”
Having only two weeks to see everything, I did a lot of research about the best way to maximize time. After writing back and forth with Jaidev from India Food Tour, my husband and I decided to book with them. They were very accommodating and we were able to create our own travel plan; I just told Jaidev where we wanted to go and he gave me the options available. We did Delhi on our own, but then India Food Tour organized everything else for us. We had a private driver, Rishi, who drove us everywhere — from Delhi to Agra, Agra to Jaipur, Jaipur back to Delhi, and then while we flew to Dharamshala, he drove up and met us there. He then drove us from Dharamshala to Shimla, and Shimla back to Delhi. Rishi did a fantastic job of driving and is probably the most competent driver I’ve ever met, especially dealing with traffic in India! The hotels the India Food Tour booked for us were decent. Many of our meals were included in the price of the tour, so we ate at the hotels. We were unsure at first if this was a good idea, but because we were in India in May, we didn’t really want to hunt for a restaurant at the end of the day anyway. Our hotel in Shimla was a bit far out, but considering we booked very last minute, we were glad just to have gotten a room.

India Food Tour also helped take care of many of the activities and sightseeing we did. We barely needed a guidebook since everything was taken care ahead of time. One thing I would improve here is having a better itinerary plan. When we first arrived in Jaipur, we were a bit behind schedule. My husband and I decided to eat lunch because we thought we had time, but then we didn’t realize that what had been planned (the Monkey Palace) closed rather early, so there wasn’t enough time to see it. If we had had a clear idea of what we were doing beforehand, we would’ve skipped lunch and grabbed something small. What I also appreciated from India Food Tour is that Rajeev, met with us before we left Delhi and gave me a SIM card. This was very convenient so that if I had problems, I could call him directly. This was particularly helpful in Dharamshala when the hotel wanted to charge us for dinner, but we had been told it would be included. Having Rajeev talk to the hotel made everything work much better. Additionally, we were able to call Rishi whenever to let him know if we wanted to go somewhere or not. I highly recommend India Food Tour and it’s a shame that we didn’t get to actually do the food tour in Delhi. (At 46ºC, we were barely eating anything!)”

“Amazing way to discover Delhi” I had a great time with Delhi Photo Tour: I was taken to very interesting places such as different markets, colourful alleys, old houses, all very fun to photograph! Jaidev is very nice and gave useful explanations to help me understand the life in each district and took me to the best places to try the local food and I was impressed by how amazing it tasted, so different from what you can find in the rest of the world. Overall a great experience packed within just a few hours in Delhi, I came back with tons of pictures I’m very pleased with! http://www.tripadvisor.in/ShowUserReviews-g304551-d6750580-r263356367-Delhi_Photo_Tour-New_Delhi_National_Capital_Territory_of_Delhi.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT #photowalk #phototour #delhi #india

Review of India Food Tour – Private Tour

““Fantastic street food tour”
On our very first day in India, Raj gave us a really wonderful introduction to Delhi — we traveled all over the city eating local street food (no issues with Delhi belly FYI) and got a real feel for the city’s history, culture, and food scene. One highlight was visiting a Sikh temple and getting to help flip rotis in their giant communal kitchen which feeds up to 45,000 people a day. We went to places we would have missed on our own. We learned about and ate fabulous things I would have been afraid to try otherwise. I can’t think of a better introduction to Delhi. Also amazing is the way India Food Tour caters to your interests — you just tell them what you are hoping to see/taste and they will customize the experience. We peppered Raj with questions about current life in India and he was really informative, plus very fun to “”hang”” with…and he also gave us suggestions on other things to do/see on the rest of our trip. On my last day Raj helped me do some shopping… he did an amazing job of taking me to specific places I wanted to see and also did some negotiating on my behalf. Very very helpful and fun! I can’t recommend it enough. I don’t normally like “”tours”” but this was truly fantastic.”

Agra Heritage Tour
Agra heritage tour is meant for travelers with deep interest in history, romantics and people who want to explore the places they visit in detail rather than just see and click photos. For most tourists, Agra is limited to Taj Mahal and perhaps a visit to Agra Fort nearby. But Agra was the capital of Mughal empire under three kings and is full of history and stories which most people don’t know about. The city is gifted with numerous gardens, forts, mosques, mausoleums and bazars built by different people from 13th to 19th century.

I’timad-Ud-Daulah tomb built by queen Nur Janha
I’timad-Ud-Daulah tomb

One of the most important, yet lesser known example is I’timad-Ud-Daulah tomb built by queen Nur Janha in memory of her father.

A number of aspects from this tomb were copied in Taj Mahal.
