Full description
This tour gives you a great introduction to the authentic old world charms of Delhi and helps you escape the nuisance of walking amongst the traffic. Meet your guide at the meeting point near Red Fort, then climb into a tuk-tuk, a modified version of the cycle rickshaw. Sit back and enjoy the views as you ride past the several colorful and busy bazaars of Old Delhi while your guide explains the important role that they play for the locals.  Your first stop is Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque. Spend some time walking around the red sandstone courtyard and if you are lucky, you can even climb up a minaret to see the views. Return to your tuk-tuk and ride through Khari Baoli, Asia's largest spice market which has existed since the 17th-century. Get hands-on information about the wonderful world of spices and their medicinal and health benefits. Build up your appetite as you take in the enticing sights and smells before stopping for a quick snack at the famous Chandni Chowk.  Head to your next stop, Gurudwara Sis Ganj, a significant prayer house for Sikhs. Spend some time interacting with locals and try your hand at langar, the community kitchen service. End the tour at Jain Mandir, home to a charitable hospital for birds. Learn about the tenets of the Jain religion before being returned to your initial meeting point near the Red Fort.

Great experience with Junaid! Highly recommend this tour, especially for single female travelers. I felt super safe and had a much better experience navigating Old Delhi with Junaid. We had a great time at Jama Masjid and since it was a Sunday the market was mostly closed, but still worth the trip! I was even super lost in the beginning and Junaid came and found me.

This tour was a great introduction to Old Delhi for me, and having arrived earlier that day a tuktuk tour was perfect for the jetlag! I got to see great hidden corners I wouldn't have seen otherwise, and as a solo female traveller I felt totally comfortable throughout the tour. My guide was running late but was very apologetic about it, and made up for the delay with his enthusiasm. But it was a shame the time lost as the beginning of the tour wasn't made up at the end, and we finished at the intended time despite of the delay, hence the 4 stars. But all in all I enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to get a taste of the organised chaos in Old Delhi!

Tour was great. Lee was very accommodating to our needs. We were on a tight time frame but we able to see what we wanted in the amount of time we had available. Using the rickshaw was great as it allowed us to see more of old delhi without walking and with better ease. Our favorite part of the tour was the food especially the banana paratha which was a total hit. The lassi was delicious as well. I would highly reccomend the tour to anyone who wants an authentic experience of old delhi. Thank you for being so accomodating and fitting us in on a same day reservation
