    My first experience in Atlantic Water Park it’s just marvellous. It’s nice place to spend a day with your family and friends. The food quality is also good and I would recommend every one to visit this place ✌️

    The Hidden Hour in Hauz Khas exceeded our expectations! The puzzles were intricate, and the overall experience was adrenaline-pumping. Definitely one of the best escape room adventures in town.

    Me and a friend did the Namaste Bollywood Dance class with Kaustav as our very first activity when we visited Delhi last month. It was great fun and Kaustav is a great teacher, he has a good sense of humour, alot of patience and took the time to explain the storytelling of the songs we were dancing to which really added to the experience. Really can't recommend this class enough, it was one of the highlights of our whole trip. Do it in costume if you can!

    Food in Chauri Bazaar to Chandani Chowk , Old Delhi in the Pre Corona days.

    “It was a soothing reiki of sights, sounds and smell , of a different world all together. Eating there was just incidental.”

    One fine evening, I got off at the Chauri Bazaar Metro station and walked the narrow lanes upto the South Gate of Jama Masjid to the famous ‘food street’ of Kareem’s and Al Jawahar for a hearty meal of Kali Mirch Chicken and a huge Khameeri Roti. This is where the real foodies go.

    After spending two hours there, took a loop round the whole Jama Masjid through the east gate night market, to exit on the Chandani Chowk side and after travelling through another set of streets reached the Metro station of Chandani Chowk and went back home. So this was the plan.

    Back at the South Gate of Jama Masjid, looking at the multitude of eateries........with food in so much of abundance, one wonders ; how can people go hungry. The list of food items besides the endless grill shops of mutton, chicken and fish , go on to the exotic dishes of the Mughal period. Be it sweets, bakery rusks, roties, everything was available. In fact besides the usual Khameer roti, the most exotic roti one can have there was the sweet dry fruit laden desi ghee Sheermal roti.

    Of course I couldn’t miss the amazing historic sweets like the extra long Gulab Jamun, the Kala Jamun, kali Jalebi, white gajar ka halwa, chawal til ke pakore besides the whole range of the usual fare. The ‘sweet milk’ stalls with a variety of other milk based sweets were mouth watering.

    Oh yes, I also had the amazing Shahi Tukra ...... the famous Mughal dish which was fabled to have been brought by Emperor Babur, learnt through an Egyptian cook to make use of left over breads. Everyone trying to please me by giving a bite to taste........
    Probably today I managed to touch the tip of the iceberg in this milieu of Chauri Bazaar......but with subsequent visits the rusks and bakery biscuit shops that I conveniently overlooked, have to be explored.

    This place is cluttered, chaotic, congested and probably the only place in the world where traffic jams are caused by cycle rickshaws,two wheelers and pedestrians !!
    But it has its character ...... vendors calling out to clients, a suspected thief being beaten outside a jewellery shop, people standing in the centre of the road deep in discussions , oblivious of the traffic chaos they have caused and ....... so on.

    And the cultural transition is so evident when one walks from the muslim dominated lanes of Chauri Bazaar to the front side of Jama Masjid multi talented handicraft markets, melting into the Hindu dominated delicious chaat stalls and sweet shops of Chandani Chowk. Suddenly non veg disappears from the roads and poori /kachori/bewri with aloo Sabzi and thick Jalebis becomes the order of the day.

    This food trail of course ends at the strictly vegetarian Parantha wali gali behind the Gurudwara. That’s the only place in the world where you get paranthas fried in shallow pans of desi ghee, stuffed with whatever vegetable you can imagine. Oh yes. I had a sweet banana stuffed parantha !! And the ka^rela parantha is not to be missed. The menu is so vast that you could have every vegetable / dry fruit stuffing possible with mix and match options.

    But, there was one common food on both sides of Jama Masjid. This common delicacy is called ‘DAULAT ki Chaat.’ And it is not the traditional chaat!!

    Lodged in a straw basket on the back side of a bicycle, this heritage sweet is made from the froth of sweetened milk mixed with kesar/Elaichi flavours and dry fruits. It’s variant is called Makhan Malai in UP and is available only in the winter days as the froth is frozen in the cool breeze of the night. Here the vendors were visible till 10pm.

    For many folks, this place may seem dirty and unhygienic compared to modern day kitchens and restaurants , but at the same time it is fascinating to see and smell the exciting delicacies being freshly prepared in front of you.

    So go challenge your self, if you are a true foodie !!!

    Trinetra Tours provided an unforgettable journey through India that exceeded all expectations. From the breathtaking Himalayas to the serene backwaters of Kerala and the vibrant streets of Rajasthan, every moment was filled with awe and wonder. The diversity of experiences, from encountering majestic tigers in the jungle to indulging in the rich flavors of Indian cuisine, made this trip truly extraordinary.

    The accommodations arranged by Trinetra Tours were diverse and impeccable, ranging from ancient palaces to eco-friendly cottages, each offering a unique glimpse into India's rich history and culture. The attention to detail and personalized service made every stay memorable.

    Exploring India's rich tapestry of religions and cultures was a highlight of the journey, with visits to Hindu temples, sheikh shrines, and Muslim tombs providing a deeper understanding of the country's heritage. And despite the occasional monkey mischief, the trip felt safe and well-organized throughout.

    As we bid farewell to India, the memories created during our journey will forever remain etched in our hearts. Trinetra Tours not only facilitated an incredible travel experience but also fostered genuine connections with the people and places we encountered along the way. It was truly a privilege to embark on this journey with such a reputable and professional tour company.

    Evening Food Tour Review: What an amazing way to dive deep into Delhi's food culture. Not only was the food fantastic and the history shared informative, but it was plain old fun to explore the market with a local! Saurabh was a great tour guide leader and I highly recommend this experience!

    I had a wonderful day with Sam who took me on the Lodhi Art Colony and Sanjay Slum tour. He was a fountain of information about both of these places. I learned so much and will convince others to go on these tours. The driver Mohan was great too. Thank you Reality Tours!

    The tour was great! Good communication beforehand as I would rather go with a group since I'm already traveling solo. Tenzin is a great tourguide told us interesting stories. I felt very safe on the bike because we were mostly riding small quite streets. Would definitely recommend!

    We contacted Deep to plan our safari to Jim Corbett National Park where I had been 45 years ago when safari’s were on elephant.He made excellent recommendations to stay at Dhikala inside the park and also a more luxury hotel for 3 other safari’s in different areas of the park. We were picked up in Delhi early morning and arrived at camp for the afternoon safari. The rest house is comfortable with excellent fresh vegetarian meals. Prakash our guide and driver Bobby were very knowledgeable and on each safari we saw up close Tigress Pedwali, elephants , deer and so much bird life.Our hotel near Dhikuli , Riverview Retreat fronted the Kosi river and was very relaxing. Room was large and well appointed and food was very nice.

    An extraordinary experience from the moment we arrived to our departure. We were not disappointed in having selected Explore India and definitely recommend them. The service was exceptional. From all concerned nothing was left to chance and all our needs and requests were met. The knowledge and professionalism of our guide Mr. shah was unqualified. He was able to explain the culture, politics and history of India. Our drivers were simply amazing in dealing with the big city, traffic chaos for which India is renowned. The hotels were five star and the food experiences equally so. It was a pleasure in dealing with all staff of this company starting with Nazir. Thanks to all for creating a truly memorable experience.
