I would have liked to have left this message in the review section on TripAdvisor, however seeing as though the company does not seem to be listed yet I would just like to commend Bridge the World Tours and Travels New Delhi here.
When my friend and I, both nineteen year old females from Australia, arrived in New Delhi, we were overwhelmed, to say the least. Having read countless unnerving forums about scams, assault and general chaos present in the city, we were on high alert throughout our stay. Upon stepping out of our hotel doors and onto the streets of Paharganj for the first time, the concerns in the forums came to life. We could not walk five metres without being approached by beggars, sales people or other 'intrigued' individuals. Needless to say, this did not make for a comfortable experience. It was only after we met Rishi, at the 'Bridge the World Tours and Travels' agency, that our hopes for an interesting and pleasant stay in New Delhi returned.
On first meeting, Rishi modified a city tour for a few days time to suit our interests and offered it to us at a VERY reasonable price (less than half the cost of similar tours that we had researched online). He then went out of his way to take us shopping and invited us to his sister's engagement ceremony. This was an experience that we will NEVER forget and although it is a case of being in the right place at the right time, this gesture reflects Rishi's main goal; to offer tourists an unforgettable experience in a city that he is very passionate about. The tour itself I can not find fault in. Rishi showed us some incredible sites at a pace that suited us, and offered us rich insight into New Delhi's history and the culture.
For us, Rishi made our stay in New Delhi a phenomenal experience and to anyone looking for a travel agency to book through while in India, I cannot recommend Bridge the World Tours and Travel New Delhi strongly enough.
