Delhi Tourism HOHO Sightseeing Service

As mentioned in my previous posts, our second day tour in Delhi was booked with Delhi Tourism HOHO sightseeing bus. They have two, full day routes which cover most of the sightseeing places of Delhi, you can either go for one day tour or cover both routes in two days. They also have Delhi Tour by evening, but only during weekends, I would definitely want to go for this during my next trip to Delhi. You can make an online booking at their official HOHO website. Tickets can even be bought on-board.
As soon as you board the bus, you will be given the route map and time schedule of that route. You can plan, which places you want to visit and alight accordingly. You can also purchase entry tickets to the monuments on-board, that way you save your time at the ticket counters, at every monument. Its an AC bus with on-board guide, they brief you about the upcoming sight in both Hindi and English. 
The guide
The best feature of this bus is, unlike the regular sightseeing bus, there is no time constraint. Their buses pass every destination, once an hour, you can catch any of their buses. They have specified bus stops at every destination. You also have flexibility of visiting places of your interest. Like we didn't want to visit markets and shopping malls, and spent more time at heritage sites.

They have 24/7 customer support to guide you, we might have called them at every destination, to confirm we had not missed our bus, lol.
Two routes, Red route and Green route
Rates:
Rs. 300/- per ticket for one day, single route.
Rs. 500/- per ticket for two days, combined route.
Rs. 300/- per ticket for evening tour, though their site says both Saturday and Sunday, its presently running only on Saturdays.
First bus starts at 8:30 am and last at 4:30/4:45 for each route(if you board last bus, all sights will be drive through).
They don't operate on Mondays, as most of the monuments in Delhi are closed on Monday.
