Full description
Sample the unique street food of Delhi on an immersive tasting tour with a local guide. Meet a selection of hand-picked street vendors in Old Delhi, all selected for their excellent hygiene and tasty dishes. Try local specialties such as chole bhature (fried bread) from the Punjab and dahi vada (fried flour balls in thick yoghurt). Sample a tasty aloo chat (fried potatoes with spices and chutney) and some delicious parathas (flatbreads). Cool your palate with a lassi and indulge your sweet tooth with some sugar-soaked jalebis, the local equivalent of rice pudding or bread and butter pudding.  Meat eaters can try some tasty fried chicken, while vegetarians will be in heaven in the bustling Matia Mahal neighborhood. Learn about Delhi’s historic walled city as you travel by rickshaw. Soak up the hustle and bustle of everyday life on the narrow streets, discover the largest spice market in Asia, and stop to admire the imposing Jama Masjid.

    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 :)

    Had an absolute blast exploring the streets of Old Delhi. Shehnaz was a great tour guide, very knowledgable and professional in touring us around. She brought us to a great assortment of sweet, savory, sour, and spicy Chaat, and led us through the chaotic streets if Old Delhi safely - something I would never have been able to do alone. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to experience the true Delhi life.
