    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.

    • Through this tour, we introduce different religions to our travellers, like Hinduism and Sikhism, which in turn fosters more cultural awareness and acceptance.
    • We hire local rickshaw drivers for your tour versus taking taxis, who work very hard to earn a living for their families.
    • On your tour you also visit local chai spots and taste local snacks at venues which are not accessible without a local guide leading the way, rather than more touristy areas.
