Delhi tour - approx cost?

We (2 people) have 2 full days in Delhi and requested a quote for a private tour. The company (won't mention their name) quoted GBP400 or R39260. To me it seemed quite a bit and wondered if any guides/tourists could confirm whether that's reasonable? Just want to make sure we aren't being ripped off.

This is their itinerary:

Day 1: Old Delhi (Raj Ghat, Red Fort, Jama Masjid, rickshaw tour); tour of capital designed for the British, drive past: Rajpath/India Gate/President's Residence & Parliament Buildings; Humayun's Tomb; Imperial Delhi: Qutub Minar, Baha'i Temple.

We pay for ourselves + guide: Dinner + Drinks at bar/nightclub

Day 2: late start then massage; Akshardham temple; walk at Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah; Picnic lunch; Hauz Khas Village.

Included: a/c car; driver; guide; entrance fees; picnic lunch;

Not included: tips, 3.09% tax, camera fees..

I say its a bit much.

Delhi you can travel independently. Its not as big as you might think.

Admission fee's are free are not that much to attractions.

There is a metro. This train travels above ground around Delhi, say 5 rupees!!

You will also be expected to give the driver a tip, always!

So I say explore on own..

Enjoy

Give Pankaj Singh a call or send him an email. +919971885284 or pankajsingh555@yahoo.com

He is an independent driver who worked with one of Delhi's premier tour companies for 15 years before going out on his own. We used him for our Delhi/Rajasthan trip in mid-October based on Tripadvisor reviews and we felt we got outstanding service at a great rate.

All the best.

You should check the quality of the guide, the place where the massage is being offered, and the model of the car.

There are guides who offer academic-level knowledgeable tours, and they charge stiff fees upto Rs 10000 per day. There are also guides who charge Rs 750 per day. And some guides who don't charge anything at all, and make their living taking you to shops for commission. And many guides in between these two ranges.

Similarly, cars are available from Rs 800 per day upto Rs 6000 per day depending on the vehicle model and whether you have an English-speaking driver and whether there are any restrictions on number of hours etc.

Massages again can be anything from Rs 1000 per person to Rs 5000 per person depending on where it is done.

So you have a wide range of prices, ranging from budget to luxury.

Please also check whether it is GBP 400 or USD 400.

Car will cost you aroiund 5000 rs including toll tax parking,

Cost of monument entry with camera fees will be around 2000 rs pp

massage at a good place will cost you 4000 rs . So the price which they have send is much higher, you should contact some else.

I will suggest that you can contact Holiday India Travel www.holidayindiatravel.com they might can help you
