Full description
Dive into Delhi with a walking tour through the heart of the city. The tour begins at Connaught Place, and from there it is only a short metro ride to Old Delhi. Originally built as the capital of the Mughal Empire in 1639, Old Delhi is busy, chaotic, and full of historic monuments.

The tour will take you past some important historical sights, and you will visits several markets. Discover Asia’s largest wholesale spice market, Khari Baoli. After visiting the spice market, the tour will stop at a rooftop to give you a special glimpse of Old Delhi from above.

See the exterior of the Red Fort and Fatehpuri Mosque, as your experienced guide explains the importance and history of both structures. Finally, finish off at the Sikh Temple to learn more about Sikhism and see how their community kitchen is able to feed so many hungry people.

We had a fantastic afternoon. Our guide, Naresh, was a star - he showed us so many fascinating places which we wouldn’t have discovered without him. He also had lots of knowledge of Old Delhi and was extremely informative. Negotiating our journey through the old city by tuk-tuk was a great experience. We’d strongly recommend this trip & Naresh.

this tour was different to the ones we did in Agra and Jaipur. Hema, our guide, took us deep into Old Delhi were you don't see many tourists wandering around. It's definitely worth the experience but not for the faint-hearted as it's loud and chaotic and an overload to Western senses. Still, highly recommended.
