I am a Delhi local and I had cousins visiting from abroad This is the best guided tour I have ever experienced. Our guide Manu really knew history and filled our day with unlimited stories of the monuments and how Delhi came into existence. He truly was the best and A Star Tours were flexible to accommodate our needs and prepared the best and comfortable itinerary for us. The car and driver were also in excellent state.
I have very happy cousins who couldn’t stop raving about their experience. Thank you very much!

This was the most perfect way we could have experienced Delhi!!! The coordination from the get go was timely and helpful - everything done on WhatsApp. I even needed to reschedule last minute and Asim and his team accommodated right away! We also wanted to do the itinerary a bit differently and they were happy to be flexible for us!

Our guide was Manu and he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We asked him so many questions and he knew the answer to everything! He made sure we had a great time and accomodated all of our needs. He even knew all the best angles and spots for photos so we can have amazing memories from the tour!

We strongly recommend this agency for a tour of all the important parts of delhi. We truly feel like we have learnt a lot and are able to contextualize the culture and the people of delhi!

Thank yiu Asim and Manu!

Today my husband and I spent a wonderful day on this tour, led by our guide Lalit and our driver Mr. Rajender. The experience was excellent. We communicated early about our itinerary via Whatsapp. They met us with a comfortable, clean, and air conditioned sedan to show us exciting areas of Old and New Delhi, including a sikh temple, the back alleys of old delhi, a spice market, a hindu temple, and humayun's tomb. Throughout the day Lalit leveraged his connections to get us access to locations with restrictions due to the current situation. Also, Lalit and Mr. Rajender were careful to ensure we had access to sanitizers and in general they were very considerate of crowds. Our lunch was specially provided according to our tastes and was delicious! We recommend this experience to anyone who wants an thorough and interesting introduction to what Old and New Delhi have to offer.

Manu picked us up at the Shangri-la promptly at 9am and we toured the city until 5pm. He was incredibly knowledgeable and had pre-paid lunch and all of the events that we had planned for the day, making for an efficient and fun trip. His English is very good as he studied in the UK and he is very knowledgeable about all things Delhi related, told him he should consider teaching history on the side. He was my favorite tour guide on my trip through India and I would highly recommend him to all others.

Fantastic introduction to Old and New Delhi, Manu was a very informative and helpful guide - highly recommend asking for his services. As a solo woman travelling, I felt very safe and confident with his company. The tour was arranged around the weather, covering the major monuments with lots of insights and history.

Despite booking the tour less than 24 hours before I went on my private Delhi tour they were able to provide an excellent service. My guide (Monu) was extensively knowledgeable about the history of Delhi and was able to answer every question I could think off. I would use this company again if I am in India and I would recommend it to anybody

I came to India for a quick weekend trip and due to the short time I had available, it was a struggle trying to come up with an itinerary to fit most of the important Delhi sights into one day (given that I was going to Agra the day after). But then I stumbled across this great tour package and I couldn't have been happier.

The guide Deepak showed me around the main Delhi highlights, explained all the back history throughly and even took some great pictures of me in the process (definetely an added bonus). I would highly recommend this package if you short on time, feel at all worried with regards to your safety about your travel to Delhi or simply just want to take the hassle of planning a great day out off your shoulders. I will definetely be keeping an Eye out for A star tours the next time that I am in India.

We were picked up at the hotel in a comfortable and cool car with two cold bottles of water waiting for us. Manu was our guide and Rajinder was our driver for the day. We started to discuss the itinerary and found that part of the tour was Old Delhi, but we had done Old Delhi on a previous food tour and did not want to go through the same things again. Manu was very flexible and found other things to see in place of Old Delhi.

Once we got started, the tour went very smoothly. We would tour a site and learn the history and neat little tidbits. We then went back to a cool car to travel to the next site. This prevented us from getting overly hot and made the tour much more comfortable.

Lunch was included and also very delicious. It was basically served one plate at a time, but you could ask for as much as you wanted if you found something you enjoyed. Everything we had was good and we walked out stuffed.

Once the tour was over, we were dropped off at the hotel. It was a great tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Delhi.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. The tour company was very efficient. Asim communicated with us regularly prior to our trip. Manu was our tour guide. He was not only extremely knowledgeable but very enthusiastic and accommodating. The Qutub Minar was amazing. The discussion of the evolving architecture of the site made it really come alive! The Red Fort was closed so we made some unplanned stops that really made the trip memorable. Our tour guide made sure that we had a good time, were comfortable and that we got to see the sites that really interested us. The tour was definitely worth it and we expect to use this tour company again.

I had a lovely time with Manu, the tour guide. He has a lot of knowledge about the different sites and was able to share so much of the great history behind the monuments. It made the experience so much more informative rather than just seeing the places without this context. As a bonus, he also knows every spot at each monument where you can take the best photos with the least amount of people! 

At Old Delhi, Manu helped us navigate the labyrinth of streets and go up a building to get a top view of the markets and was able to share some nice stories about the people there. Also got some spices and teas to take home with me.

Lunch was good at a clean restaurant. My driver was also very nice and drove smoothly through the streets of Delhi.

I recommend this tour for all first-time Delhi visitors!
