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.

    Honestly such an amazing way to experience Delhi! The guides are amazing and talk you through the fascinating history of the city, whilst trying loads of different foods. I was stuffed by the end. At first I thought the price was quite high for the tour, but after doing the tour I realised why. All Your food is included, rickshaws and metros are included as well as the team offsetting 80% of the profit from the tours to help children get a better education in India! So worth the money, don’t hesitate just book it- it was my favourite day from my Two weeks trip and will be recommending it to everyone!

    Amazing tour! I don’t know how we would have navigated old Delhi without this tour and without our fantastic guide, Vijay. Don’t make our mistake— come hungry! There’s so much good food, so many sights to see, and getting to stop at the spice market to buy spices was a total highlight. Can’t recommend this tour enough for anyone, especially those like me who originally felt like the markets are a daunting place as a tourist. Thank you again, Vijay!

    A very incredible experience, our guide was very kind, he answered all our questions, he took us by subway, then by bicycle taxi through all the streets and by tuck tuck! The food was very good, we asked that it not be too spicy and he did everything possible to make it a unique experience by being able to see and live the day-to-day life of the local people, and his meals were recommended by our guide, sourav. We recommend it 100%
