Full description
Benefit from a pick-up by a local guide and walk to the nearest metro station to start your tour of Old Delhi. If your hotel is far from the metro station, your guide will pick you up by tuk-tuk and take you to the station. Explore the Red Fort, spread over 255 acres, connecting Old and New Delhi. Built in 1648, this Fort has royal residences, sections for public audiences used by Mughal emperors and fountains. Learn the history of Shah Jahan, who also commissioned the Taj Mahal in Agra, and admire the architecture of an era gone-by. Ride the metro to experience Delhi's lifeline first hand. Upon arrival in Old Delhi, stroll the streets to discover the heritage buildings and watch the lifestyle and culture come to life. Go to the Jama Masjid mosque, built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan between 1644 and 1656. Dive down the lanes of Old Delhi to visit the bazaars, where your guide will share ancient stories. Stop on one of Old Delhi's most famous streets to taste an Indian paratha flatbread, commonly served as a snack. Go to one of the city's gurudwara (Sikh temples), and then travel by cycle rickshaw to the spice market to get an insight into the produce on sale.

Suraj's tour was the highlight of my trip to Delhi. It was extremely well organized, fun, safe, and he provided detailed information throughout. What really stands out is the breadth of the experiences we covered in just three hours. From the markets to mosques to a tuk tuk to a metro ride, there is no way we would have stumbled upon all of these things ourselves. Suraj's expertise gave us a wonderful taste of just how vibrant and diverse old Delhi is.

We booked the Old Delhi walking tour on our last day in Delhi and glad we did. It was a highlight of the week in India, wish we had done it upon arrival instead of waiting. Our guide, Deepak, was very good, explaining history and locations and taking photos for us. He was adept at handling the logistics of the Delhi subway (very nice subway, by the way), multiple rickshaw rides and a food stop. Old Delhi is a must-see -- it's not touristy or gentrified, it's authentic and very much part of daily life for locals.
