Surekha makes “innocents aboard” into confident travelers — Our first experience was travelling on the metro into Chandni Chowk for the food walk. A journey on this very busy metro line is not for the “faint hearted”. Under Surekha’s guidance 16 of us started the journey together and miraculously kept together the whole tour. The technique of crossing the busy roads was the next lesson. We also picked up lots of good tips on eating safely in India. Street Food Walk.

We hired Surekha for private tours for a couple of days. The traditional tourist sites come alive under her knowledge and enthusiasm. However it is the visits to less well known temples and hidden gems where one appreciates Surekha for imparting her love and knowledge of Delhi. Without her advice and guidance we would not have had so rich an adventure with food, travel and site-seeing. By Indian standards she is extremely expensive, but for her knowledge, enthusiasm, fun and friendship she was worth every rupee. Search in Trip Advisor for “Surekha Narain”Harthan’s tours, Feb. 2011 — Street Food walk in Chandni Chowk, at night drive thru’ Lutyens Delhi, Qutb complex, flower market, Mehrauli A.
