Overview
Walk Delhi's chaotic streets with a local guide and experience the dizzying pace of daily life in Delhi. Learn about India's struggle for independence as you explore ancient Hindu temples, and snack on sweet chai and tasty morsels from street stalls.
What to Expect
Learn about India's struggle for independence, visit Hindu temples and discover the clamour and colour of daily Indian life. From the labyrinthine backstreets and the striking Jama Masjid, to the bustle of Chandni Chowk, this old-world walled city within a modern metropolis is fascinating. Grab some street snacks and discover the secrets of Old Delhi.

Travel on the metro to the old part of Delhi with our local guide. There's a chance to kick start the day with a cup of chai before diving into the sights, sounds and smells of Old Delhi.

This part of town includes great street food, markets, bazaars, temples and famous historical sites, all of which we will visit. There are plenty of chances to stop and sample a samosa from a street stall!

Goods on offer range from wedding paraphernalia to cow dung on a string. As this is a walking tour, we will walk through narrow alleyways to visit the people, sites and smells of Old Delhi. No two trips will be the same as there is always something happening in this part of town. Our local guide will take us on a real life experience that allows us to lose ourselves.

Stops include significant historical sights linked to the 1857 Mutiny (also known as India's First War of Independence), which was ruthlessly put down by British colonial forces and was a precursor to a later more peaceful struggle for independence led by Mahatma Gandhi in the early 1900's. Our local guide will provide us with a background into India's more recent history and struggle for independence.

We will visit local temples dedicated to the various Hindu gods where our local guide will give us an insight into the religion of Hinduism.

At the end of the trip you are free for personal exploration or alternatively your local guide can assist with arranging a taxi back to your hotel.

Know Before You Go
This trip is offered on a "join-in" basis. Maximum group size is 12.

Dress standards are conservative throughout India especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Indian climate.

If you are happy with the services provided, a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations.

Children policy: Children must be between 6 and 11 years of age inclusively.
