What better way to explore a city than its food! Explore India and its culture and tradition in this amazing food and heritage walk of the glorious city of Old Delhi! You tour will start with your guide picking you up from your hotel and taking you on a metro ride.
After reaching Old Delhi, your first stop will be at Gurudwara Sis Ganj, (Sikh Gurudara with an important historic reference) where you can learn about the community kitchen service!
Begin your food walk with, some sweet jalebis (deep fried sweet dish made by corn flour and sugar syrup) and samosa (fried triangular bread stuffed with potatoes) from a 100 year old shop. Walk ahead with your guide to try Raj Kachori (kind of chat filled with fresh yogurt, sweet and sour sauces in a crispy edible bowl!)
Once you’re done here, get ready to stuff some gorgeous paranthas (Indian flatbread filled with a variety of stuffing’s like cheese, cashews, chilli, and lemon to name a few!), Kulia ki chaat (different fruit bowls filled with chickpeas and masala) and a very unique fruit sandwich.
After this, walk towards the spice market to see the whole world of spices and then fill your belly some more with dishes like rabri-faluda (rice noodles), chole bhatura (chickpeas curry and fried bread) and a chilled glass of Lassi! (Sweetened yogurt)
Finish your gastronomic journey with some chilled and mouth watering kulfi (Indian ice cream with more than 50 flavours) before your guide takes you back and drop at the metro station.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour...the food was delicious and getting around the area was an adventure. It was a fast paced experience with an intense atmosphere within our surroundings in this complex city.
A good tour and quite a long time for us as we only landed and got to our hotel an 1 1/2 hrs before the tour. The tour gave a door insight to Delhi and using all forms of transport to se the city was a bonus metro, Tuk Tuk, and rickshaw and the walk through the streets has to be done to appreciate the amount of people that live and work there. We saw temples and the commercial areas together with eating at the street food. All in all I would recommend this tour to give you a flavour of Delhi. The only downside after a lengthy tour around was going to a spice market shop and feeling obliged to buy some items from them. The tour guide was good, knowledgeable and took great care of us from the time of picking us up to dropping us off back at our Hotel.
Excellent tour including some wonderful food. I especially enjoyed the parathas at Gali Paranthe Wali but all of the food was very good. Personally I'd happily have kept the visits to the places of worship to just a quick photo opportunity but I'm sure others would disagree. I was staying in Gurgaon so the trip included a short metro ride there and then a fairly long metro ride to Old Delhi but all was taken care of by the very helpful and knowledgeable tour guide Rishi. Old Delhi is definitely worth seeing and I'd highly recommend this tour as a good introduction.
The guide was very informed and smart. The tour included ricksha ride, metro and tuk-tuk.Good choice of street food.
THank you great tour
