    What to Expect
    Hop aboard the local metro with the help of your local guide and head to Old Delhi, where you’ll enjoy a cup of spicy chai before taking to the city streets. Sample flavorful street food, comb through eclectic markets, wander through Hindu temples and visit key historical sites on this half-day small-group tour of Old Delhi. Learn about traditional wedding items and the meaning of marigold chains in these bustling bazaars and then navigate back alleys as you explore this colorful part of the Delhi.

    Enjoy lunch at the famous Paratha Wali Gali, where stuffed fried breads and creamy curd are paired with spicy homemade pickles. Watch as local chefs prepare this midday feast and fresh ingredients make their way from smoking pans to tawas (hot plates). Your guide will also take you to sites associated with the 1857 Mutiny—India’s First War of Independence—and share stories about the old and more recent struggle for independence. Come away with a deeper understanding of Hinduism after stops at several temples.

    Finally, end your trip with a bit of exploration on your own, or ask your guide to assist with arranging a taxi to take you to your hotel.

    Had a fantastic tour of Old Delhi. Saw amazing sites and tasted some wonderful local dishes. A uniquely Indian experience. Special thanks to our guide, Gaurav, who gave us just the right amount of information at a comfortable pace.

    Had a great trip with Reetika, who added a lot of enthusiasm for the tour. She made the trip seem like a friend showing you her city, rather than a formal, guided tour.

    We did a small group afternoon tour, touring architecture/ruins, a modern coffee spot, the Sunder gardens and street art. It was a good mix of things we would have never done on our own & gave a different taste of Delhi. Our guide Sammy was fantastic - humourous, informative and
