Full description
What better way to explore a city than its food! Explore India and its culture and tradition in this amazing food and heritage walk of the glorious city of Old Delhi! You tour will start with your guide picking you up from your hotel and taking you on a metro ride.  After reaching Old Delhi, your first stop will be at Gurudwara Sis Ganj, (Sikh Gurudara with an important historic reference) where you can learn about the community kitchen service. Begin your food walk with, some sweet jalebis (deep fried sweet dish made by corn flour and sugar syrup) and samosa (fried triangular bread stuffed with potatoes) from a 100-year-old shop. Walk ahead with your guide to try Raj Kachori (kind of chat filled with fresh yogurt, sweet and sour sauces in a crispy edible bowl.) Once you’re done here, get ready to stuff some gorgeous paranthas (Indian flatbread filled with a variety of stuffing’s like cheese, cashews, chilli, and lemon to name a few!), Kulia ki chaat (different fruit bowls filled with chickpeas and masala) and a very unique fruit sandwich. After this, walk towards the spice market to see the whole world of spices and then fill your belly some more with dishes like rabri-faluda (rice noodles), chole bhatura (chickpeas curry and fried bread) and a chilled glass of Lassi! (Sweetened yogurt) Finish your gastronomic journey with some chilled and mouth-watering kulfi (Indian ice cream with more than 50 flavours) before your guide takes you back to the metro station.

This tour made our trip to India!

Deepak perfected our trip to India by his energetic display of Old Delhi street foods and his heart felt love of his country's foods. We tasted traditional and newly on the scene experimental street foods like Kulfi. Multi is a spiced fruit juice that's frozen like ice cream. So refreshing. We highly recommend taking Deepak's tour, that's more than street food. The temple tour and tuh-tuk rides added so much to the cultural side. Go, book this tour now!

Great experience, Deepak is a cool dude

Great adventure! Deepak grabbed us from the motel and set a good pace to the metro, that was an experience itself! He took us into old Delhi and was a great guide, felt safe the whole time. In between the street food he told some good stories of the history of India! Highly recommend for a comfortable way to see old Delhi. Thanks Deepak
