Discover Delhi the way locals do, by local transport!
Metros, buses, tuk-tuks, oh my!
This tour begins in Connaught Place. From there, we will venture to the nearby Gurudwara Bangla Sahib Sikh temple and witness how they are able to prepare lunch for up to 1000 people at a time. Next in our journey is a trip to the Presidential Palace complex to see the heart of India’s government and pay your respects at India Gate, Delhi’s war memorial.
We will hop into a tuk-tuk to head to Lodhi Gardens, a beautiful green park teeming with history. After a relaxing stroll in the park, we will grab lunch at the luxurious Khan Market, one of Asia’s most expensive shopping areas.
After lunch, we will visit the majesty of Humayun’s Tomb where you can get lost in its beauty. From here, we will head to Old Delhi to visit Jama Mosque, the epicenter of Delhi’s Muslim community and then head to the Mughal-era Red Fort which stands proudly in the heart of the city. A stroll through the markets leads us back to Chandni Chowk, Old Delhi’s main street.
From there, guests can choose to visit the nearby Sikh temple or head back to the metro station.
Visit the beautiful Gurudwara Bangla Sahib Sikh temple. Learn about Sikhism and see the communal kitchen where anybody is allowed to eat for free. The kitchen is completely volunteer run and if you would like to help out, you are more than welcome!
See where the president lives and in the surrounding Secretariat buildings and Parliament House, where the country is run. Unfortunately you’re not allowed inside but the buildings sit at the top of a small hill and the view overlooking Rajpath (the King’s Way) and India Gate in the distance is stunning.
Wander this spectacular 90 acre garden and discover tombs, mosques and bridges built during the 15th century Sayyid and Lodhi periods.
This magnificent 16th century tomb is the earliest large scale example of Mughal architecture in India! Take some time to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site and the surrounding buildings in this 30-acre garden complex.
Admire the main mosque of Old Delhi, built in 1656 by Shah Jahan and enjoy the great views.
Taking its name from the big red sandstone walls that go around for 2.4 Km, the Red Fort is characterised by its double domes buildings made of marble.
Please meet outside Gate 1 at Rajiv Chowk Metro Station.

My husband and I booked this private tour during our first visit in Delhi and we could not be more happy! The tour was very well planned and gave us interesting insights in the everyday life of people in Delhi. Our guide Naresh was very competent and could answer every question we had (and we had a lot of questions! 😀 ). And most importantly, he was very sympathetic and flexible. He adjusted the tour to our needs, as my husband injured his foot the day before and could not walk a lot. So we took Tuktuk a bit more frequent. So happy we didn’t miss the tour and we definitely recommend it to everyone who is interested in the insights from the local!
