    Naugraha literally means nine houses, and they all date back to the 18th century. The street is small but pops of teal doors and ornately designed entrances make this the perfect backdrop for “Incredible India” photos. If you’re a junk jewellery enthusiast, you’ll find a lot of stash here at prices way lower than the malls or standalone designers

Very experienced guide - tailored our walk to places we hadn't seen (given we had seen most of the well known sights), so we got to see more authentic streets and markets etc. And then he took us to a local restaurant for lunch (Moti Mahal) where the food was good and plentisome.

We had an awful experience with guruwalks. We got a mail saying our booking was confirmed and instructions to reach the starting point. When we reached there at the appointed time the guide was nowhere to be seen. Several phone calls later, he picked up and said in an unapologetic way that the walk was cancelled. When we asked him the reason he just brushed aside the question. Very bad experience, I would suggest no one to plan a walk with guruwalk as there is no respect for your time or effort there.

We had a wonderful time with Rahis! He even offered to pick us up and drop us off at hotel for a small fee, which was much appreciated. He is very personable, fun to chat with, and knowledgeable of Delhi. His car is very clean, comfortable and has air conditioning. We always felt safe and taken care of. We truly enjoyed our time with Rahis so much that we booked another day of touring with him!
