Overview
Both Old Delhi and New Delhi—the historic and modern neighborhoods of the vibrant Indian capital—are famous for their sweet and savory tastes. Discover the city’s sensational food traditions on this action-packed combo tour, which travels hidden corners of both sides to the capital to sample up to 19 different dishes, topped off by an authentic local meal.
Highlights
  • A comprehensive food tour of Old and New Delhi
  • Sample multiple local delicacies at various food stops
  • Hop an iconic cycle rickshaw and get a peek at landmark monuments
  • After whetting your appetite, enjoy an authentic local meal at the end
What to Expect
Tailor-made tours are fully customizable, depending on your preferences and dietary requirements. Start in Old Delhi, the lively former capital of the Mughal Empire, where you follow your guide through hidden back alleys to discover the neighborhood’s most sensational culinary treasures, from tiny street vendors to centuries-old restaurants. You can haggle for mustard seeds at Khari Baoli, Asia’s largest spice market, and get a first-hand peek at some of the city’s top historic landmarks, including the Red Fort and the Jama Masjid. You also visit a charitable kitchen, which feeds thousands of people each day. Hop an iconic cycle rickshaw as you travel between longer stops for a truly authentic local ride. Old Delhi boasts over 400 food stalls, so count on tasting a plethora of delicacies during your tour, from quintessential street snacks like golgappa—round, crispy balls filled with tamarind-infused water—to paratha, Indian flatbread stuffed with potato, cheese, or radish. End your tour in New Delhi, where you discover more tucked-away food stops and sit down to an authentic local meal.
