The ONLY Delhi Sightseeing Guide you will Ever Need

So have you been bombarded with all those Delhi Sightseeing  tours and packages which offer next to nothing to the tourist and are  made with the intention of maximizing Profit rather than helping the traveler enjoy their Delhi sightseeing tour ? Most probably your answer will be a Yes!!  Well not anymore , today I am going to help you plan out so that you can make your own Delhi Sightseeing Tour .

Before I proceed further let me briefly tell what I am going to Discuss:-

  • What is your flavor or Taste . i.e are you looking for Mughal monuments or British era Building or Modern Indian etc .
  • How many people are you ?
  • How much time do you have ?
  • Lastly , Your Budget for Delhi Sightseeing.

 

I have also written about a Delhi Darshan  tour. You can read it if you want. “Darshan” in hindi means to visit or see .

STEP 1 :- Choose Places to visit in our Delhi Sightseeing Tour.

Now we have chosen our places to visit in our Delhi sightseeing tour.  Next we will move on to our mode of transport.

 

STEP 2:- Now Find a Vehicle according to budget for Delhi Sightseeing.

You bill can multiply several times if you opt for a higher end luxury vehicle . Since most tourist groups are small so hiring a Taxi is the most famous method of Delhi Sightseeing . If you have your own vehicle you can just plan out your tour using google maps or a paper map , just keep traffic conditions in your mind. If you are a large group then you can hire a bus or mini van according to your size. If you are staying in a hotel , they can provide you with a vehicle BUT remember tell them before which destinations you have to visit otherwise they will rap up your tour in a cheap way while maximizing their profit. I am suggesting following vehicles with budget per kilometer and capacity.

Delhi Sightseeing by Taxi.

  • Small Sedan like Tata Indigo,Swift Dzire AC (capacity 4) – Rs. 15 per Km
  • Indica  AC (capacity 4) – Rs. 11 per Km and  non – AC (capacity 4) – Rs. 9 per Km
  • Suv‘ s like Innova  AC (capacity 4-7) – Rs. 18 per Km
  • Deluxe Sedan Honda City  AC (capacity 4) – Rs. 25 per Km
  • Mercedes  AC (capacity 4) – Rs. 65 per Km

Delhi Sightseeing by Tempo Traveller .  AC (capacity 12-17) – Rs. 24 per Km

Delhi Government also provides both taxi (black and golden color ) and HOHO Bus Service to Tourists for Delhi Sightseeing , if you are looking for a cheap service this is for you.

Several deluxe buses are also available for Sightseeing .They can be easily arranged by your tour operator or hotel where you are residing you can also try out the HOHO bus service mentioned above.

In all the cases fix the fare beforehand , fix the destinations beforehand and ask for a ballpark figure by the vehicle operator. I have excluded waiting charges intentionally as they vary widely . Try to keep a GPS handy , taxi drivers intentionally take longer routes.

I suggest spreading out your tour over two days to enjoy each and every destination .

 

Step 3:-  Enjoy your Delhi Sightseeing tour.
