Discover the new and old of Delhi on the tour. Experience the city, see different temples, wander the market, and enjoy a rickshaw ride in Old Delhi.
What to Expect
Discover Delhi and its incredible contrasts as you experience the modern as well as the historic sides of the Indian metropolis. Begin your tour with a visit to the highest minaret in India, Qutub Minar, and see the grounds with countless ruins of the old graves and palaces. The Iron Pillar is also unique, as it is over 2,000 years old yet has never rusted. Take a walk around the Lodhi Garden with its hundred-year-old cemetery and trees.
Head to the India Gate, the victory arch of Delhi, through the government district with its imposing parliament buildings. See the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the largest Sikh temple in Delhi. Enjoy the unique atmosphere of the area and experience the incredible calm of the healing waters. Many volunteers work on the temple grounds, for example watching over the shoe storage.
Experience Old Delhi, the historical and original part of the lively city. Drive past the imposing Agra Fort and see the incredible Friday Mosque Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. In the afternoon, indulge your culinary senses. Your tour guide will lead you down the Gali Paranthe Wali, where you will discover the secrets of Indian cuisine. The best parathas are here: these are thin breads, like a pancake, that can be filled with various vegetables.
Immerse yourself in the lively market stalls of Chandni Chowk, the traditional bazaar of Old Delhi. Enjoy a cup of Chai tea amidst the crowds on the market paths with their many colorful stands, before concluding the tour with a rickshaw ride from the bazaar.
