Nuestra excursión en Delhi ha sido una de las mejores experiencias que he reservado a través de Viator. Si usted, como yo, no creen en el "viaje burbuja", donde se va desde el aeropuerto a un hotel de lujo a un coche con aire acondicionado, esta es la actividad para usted. No viene más auténtico que esto!
Nuestro guía nos trajo Anupam en el hotel y desde allí comenzó la jornada en los distintos modos de transporte en Delhi. El metro está limpio y ordenado y en un estado mejor que muchas ciudades europeas que he estado. Dondequiera que iba, la gente ofreció sonrisas y miradas curiosas. El viaje en tuc-tuc es también una experiencia a través del tráfico agitado y millones de personas. Nosotros, sin embargo nos sentimos seguros en las manos expertas de nuestro guía y lo siguió como patitos.
Nos dieron la bienvenida en la casa de Mumtaz con guirnaldas de flores y un punto rojo en la frente para darnos la bienvenida y ordenó nos sentimos como en casa en su cocina deliciosa azul. Ingredientes fueron explicados y luego comenzó la cocción. Todo lo que comimos era una explosión de sabor picante del té chai al dahl oro y el curry paneer. Cada uno tenía un turno para probar nuestra suerte en hacer chapatis y tenía una buena risa a menos que los esfuerzos de nuestro perfectos.
Terminamos la noche con Mumtaz pintar las manos con henna arte maravilloso. Los habitantes de la India son hospitalario, amable e interesado en la diversidad.
En suma, una experiencia mágica.
I wanted to share an experience with a working class family. My host was warm and gracious and I enjoyed the dinner. My recommendation to improve this experience is to schedule when guest is not traveling during rush hour. The trip was one hour going and three returning to hotel in New Delhi.
An excellent way to get to realy know the people! My delightful guide Komal picked me up at my hotel and whisked me away in an airconditioned car to her northwestern Dehli home where I met her parents, grandma and younger brother - all anxious to practice their Engish while "mama" taught me how simple it was to try my hand at making a lovely veggie Indian meal! The food was great and the hands-on experience couldn't have been more fun! I'd highly recommend this to anyone visiting Delhi as a great way to REALLY see beyond the India Gate and the swarming traffic into the real heart of India!
Our excursion in Delhi has been one of the best experiences I’ve booked through Viator. If you, like me, do not believe in “bubble travel” where you go from the airport to a luxury hotel to an air-conditioned car, this is the activity for you. It doesn’t come more authentic than this!
Our guide Anupam fetched us at the hotel and from there the journey on the various transport modes in Delhi started. The metro is clean and orderly and in a better state than many European cities I’ve been to. Everywhere we went people offered smiles and curious looks. The tuc-tuc ride is also an experience through the hectic traffic and millions of people. We however felt perfectly safe in the capable hands of our guide and followed him like baby ducks.
We were greeted at Mumtaz’s home with flower garlands and a red dot on our foreheads to bade us welcome and we felt right at home in her delightful little blue kitchen. Ingredients were explained and then the cooking began. Everything we ate was a flavour explosion from the spicy chai tea to the golden dahl and the paneer curry. We each had a turn to try our hand at making chapattis and had a good giggle at our less than perfect efforts.
We ended off the evening with Mumtaz painting our hands with wonderful henna art. The people of India are hospitable, friendly and interested in diversity.
All in all a magical experience.
The cultural night tour exceeded our expectations! The host family was very gracious and hospitable and allowed us to join in in cooking the meal. To top things off, they dressed my wife in a sari and painted her hand in a henna design and outfitted me with a turban. We felt like royalty with the treatment we were given. It was not until the next day that our hosts alerted us via email that my wife had left her wedding band at their home. They saw to it that the third party tour operator, got the ring to us in good fashion. All in all, everything worked out well.
