We did the afternoon food tour that started at 1 pm. We met our guide at the Metro Station and he explained what the tour would encompass and what we would be eating. After that was complete, he walked us into the Metro to take the train to Old Delhi.

Once we got off the train, it was one great food item after another. The tour was not only about food, but we learned a lot of history about Old Delhi. We stopped at about 10 different places and tried all kinds of foods.

At one point, we passed groups of people sitting in two groups outside restaurants while walking down a narrow street to our next food spot. I asked our guide if they were waiting for free bread and he explained that they were waiting for a free meal as they were poor. People eating at the restaurants can leave a few Rupees and when they have 50 Rupees total, they make a plate for one person. As we were eating our fried chicken, I asked if I could buy a bunch of meals for these people and my friend also wanted to do the same. The guide walked us back to the restaurants and explained that we wanted to buy meals for those people. They agreed and we paid them. Before they passed out the plates, they had us touch the first one to bless and it then started to hand out all the food. It warmed our hearts that we could at least help them with this one meal.

This was an incredible tour and the part of the proceeds go to help the poor, so I cannot recommend it enough.

Such an amazing experience. My guide Abhishek was excellent. He knew where to go for all the good food, explained the delicious goodies we ate, and also described the history and culture in the parts of the city we visited. He even showed me how to use the Metro! At the end of the night I was full...from eating, seeing so many sights and just experiencing Old Delhi at ground level. I also got some great street photography shots as well. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Thanks again Abhishek.

This is more than a food tour, it’s a cultural journey though one of Delhi’s most fascinating regions and a fantastic introduction to Indian food and the history of Old Delhi.

Our guide Saurav was excellent, he was knowledgeable of the food and the culture of Delhi, took care of transport and ordering food and made sure everyone was experiencing the tour at their own pace. I would’ve been lost in the tangled streets of Old Delhi without him, and would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience some fantastic food.

This food tour was an explosion of beautiful flavors! Wow! Our guide, Kavita (Kavi) expertly navigated the MAYHEM that is road traffic in Delhi while providing great detail about each of the food samples we tasted. Kavi even explained all the steps of how to make each dish ourselves! She gave us a sense of comfort while twisting and turning through the bustling streets and marketplaces as we went from food stop to food stop. I am now on a quest to find some of this food in the US. The tastings were plentiful and we ended up eating so much that we skipped dinner that night! Aside from having the opportunity to bond with Kavi over shared experiences and chats about our different cultures, the tour was an exciting day for us. Highly recommend this tour as a FIRST stop when visiting Delhi. You'll get a full taste of the area, but also learn the tips and tricks of getting around on the metro system and tuk tuks. Wear comfy shoes :) What a day! Book now with Kavi!

We had such a wonderful time with Abhishek on the Old Delhi food tour. He took us around Old Delhi and explained the history and cultures is addition to sharing the traditions that led to such delicious food! Although Old Delhi was very busy we always felt safe and Abhi took care of everything, including our metro passes and the rickshaws. We had a wonderful time!

Stanley, our guide, met us promptly, guided us expertly through subway crowds, dirt streets and excellent food in Old Delhi. I highly recommend this tour for the adventurous—not so much because of the food which was good and mostly identifiable (potatoes, yogurt, lentils, fried bread)—but because of the noise, the traffic and the press of people. It was our first day in India and quite a good introduction!

The whole trip was excellent. We got to the heart of the old city of Delhi and experienced the buzz of street life with an exceptional tour leader. We tried a selection of very tasty foods and drinks. Often when travelling there's a risk of getting stomach problems from street food so It was great to have a guide with us who could take us to authentic places to eat and drink where these concerns weren't an issue. It was a great introduction to India.

I highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore old Delhi and try some delicious food. The food we tried at each stop was great, but even better was getting to experience Old Delhi with a knowledgeable and organized guide to help us. We wouldn’t have been able to navigate this hectic neighborhood without him! We also learned a bit about the food, the history, and current sites in Old Delhi.

Today we joined the Old Delhi Food & Sightseeing tour. This was our very first day in India and we couldn’t have started it in a better way. Abhishek was our guide and the word guide actually doesn’t do him justice. It was like walking around with a friend, and not too bad this friend happened to know EVERYTHING about the place where we walked around, which came in extremely handy as you can imagine. We really could ask him anything about India, about the food, but also about customs, weddings, religion, culture, traditions, his own life. He also was very forthcoming in giving us advice regarding the rest of our trip as we still had some considerations. Thank you Abhishek to this great introduction to New Delhi.

It will not surprise you that I really recommend this tour. And by the way, if you take the lunch time tour like we did, don’t make big plans for dinner ;-)

Loved this! Our guide Stanley took us into Chandni Chowk where we got amazing info on food, significance, culture, and history related to Chandni Chowk itself. The food was lovely the whole time. Stanley was also very accommodating in making sure that we had water, directions, and everything else in between. He did a wonderful job!

Would easily do again but maybe just not in the heat of July :)
