i went for two walks organised by gointhecity...the red fort- up close and personal with the mughals and ferozshah the city of non djinns... both the walks were a delight. i have been living in delhi for 15 years but these walks made me realise the cultural and the historical depth of our capital. gaurav conducted our walks with such passion and interest that time literally flew.. both the walks lasted god 3-4 hours and there was not a second we got bored or even looked at the time. he is extremely knowledgeable and friendly...he answered all our questions with utmost patience..kudos to gointhecity and gaurav... looking forward to attending more and more of such delhi walks... highly recommend it to others too.. you will start looking at delhi with a new perspective!!!
