I’ve already recommended this tour to several people. It was not only a fantastic food tour, it was an adventure through the streets of Old Delhi on foot, a wild tuk-tuk ride complete with an Indian wedding passing by, and a revelation in so many different types of food. Indian is certainly not just curry! It was utterly delicious, Sam was a fantastic guide who took great care of us.

Our guide Kavita was very friendly and informative, about the food but also Delhi in general. She made us feel comfortable and even helped us to get transportation back to our hotel after the tour had finished. We really recommend the tour as it will give you a basis of what’s good to eat :)

Well worth the cost, being directed around Old Delhi by our Terrific tour guide Saurav and getting to taste and see things I never would have the opportunity to do. Saurav was fantastic at navigating the busy streets and showing his knowledge at each of the food stops.
