Old Delhi Half Day Small Group Tour
US$58.00
Overview
Uncover the sights, scents and flavors of Delhi’s lively streets on this Old Delhi Half Day Small Group Tour. Listen in as your expert guide shares stories about India’s struggle for independence. Navigate narrow alleyways and crowded backstreets. Visit Hindu temples, Jama Masjid and the old-world walled city of Chandni Chowk, which still exists in this modern city. Discover the secrets of Old Delhi and gain unique insight into local life on this half-day tour.
What to Expect
Hop aboard the local metro with the help of your local guide and head to Old Delhi, where you’ll enjoy a cup of spicy chai before taking to the city streets. Sample flavorful street food, comb through eclectic markets, wander through Hindu temples and visit key historical sites on this Old Delhi Half Day Small Tour. Learn about traditional wedding items and the meaning of marigold chains in these bustling bazaars and then navigate back alleys as you explore this colorful part of the Delhi.
Enjoy lunch at the famous Paratha Wali Gali, where stuffed fried breads and creamy curd are paired with spicy homemade pickles. Watch as local chefs prepare this mid-day feast and fresh ingredients make their way from smoking pans to tawas (hot plates). Your guide will also take you to sites associated with the 1857 Mutiny—India’s First War of Independence—and share stories about the old and more recent struggle for independence. Come away with a deeper understanding of Hinduism after stops at several temples.
Finally, end your trip with a bit of exploration on your own, or ask your guide to assist with arranging a taxi to take you to your hotel.
