Overview
Get a comprehensive tour of Old Delhi, which includes both major landmarks and hidden gems you may not find on your own. With a guide in the lead and a curated itinerary, you can focus on enjoying the experience and know that you won't miss any important sites. Stops include the wedding market, Old Delhi's historic Gurudwara Sisganj Sahib Sikh temple, and Asia's largest spice market.
What to Expect
If you only have time for one tour of Dehli this is the one you should take. We will meet you at your hotel or another meeting point and then for 3 hours or more we will explore Old Delhi which is the heart of the capital city of India. What makes Old Delhi so fascinating is the maze of streets and the amount of people, animals and fascinating activity that takes place there everyday. For the tour we will take a range of transportation methods from the modern Delhi Metro (subway) to a rickshaw ride with lots of walking mixed in. The main features of the tour are a visit to a Sikh temple, the wedding market and the spice market. The Sikh temple of Sis Ganj is special because they produce meals for thousands of people each day and you are welcome to help prepare the meal! Weddings are a big deal in India and the Old Delhi Wedding Market is a spectacular celebration of all of the things needed for an Indian wedding from fabric and beads, to bangles and invitations. The spice market, properly called Khari Baoli, is one of the largest wholesale spice markets in Asia and the colours and smells are incredible. Throughout the tour we will introduce you to people who make their living working in Old Delhi – shop keepers, chai tea sellers, rickshaw drivers and students are the likely people you will meet. We will discuss the history of the area as well as the finer points of everything from religion, to Indian families and weddings, to spices and cuisine. Along the way if there is anything that takes your eye and you want to explore we are happy to go with you and interpret as needed. This tour is friendly and flexible and takes you away from the normal tourist places and into the heart of Old Delhi.

Being first time travellers to India, and with our youngish family, it was really important that we had the best possible experience, and immersed ourselves as much as possible in the beauty and chaos of Delhi. Our family of five (2 adults, 3 children -...More
