I’ve already recommended this tour to several people. It was not only a fantastic food tour, it was an adventure through the streets of Old Delhi on foot, a wild tuk-tuk ride complete with an Indian wedding passing by, and a revelation in so many different types of food. Indian is certainly not just curry! It was utterly delicious, Sam was a fantastic guide who took great care of us.
Great experience with Junaid! Highly recommend this tour, especially for single female travelers. I felt super safe and had a much better experience navigating Old Delhi with Junaid. We had a great time at Jama Masjid and since it was a Sunday the market was mostly closed, but still worth the trip! I was even super lost in the beginning and Junaid came and found me.
Well worth the cost, being directed around Old Delhi by our Terrific tour guide Saurav and getting to taste and see things I never would have the opportunity to do. Saurav was fantastic at navigating the busy streets and showing his knowledge at each of the food stops.
Amazing! Our tour guide was so lovely and insightful and we got to taste some of the most amazing at the eat food in Old Delhi! Could not recommend enough
Abi was our guide. He was very informative, and a very pleasant guy
