Dive into Delhi with an evening trip through the heartbeat of the city!
Originally built as the capital of the Mughal Empire in 1639, Old Delhi is busy and chaotic, yet full of historic monuments such as the Red Fort, Fatepuri Masjid and the Sikh Temple. In addition to the historic sites, we will also visit several markets including Asia’s largest wholesale spice market, Khari Baoli. Old Delhi is nothing short of madness, with seemingly everyone in the city trying to get to the same places. Let us guide you through the chaos and you will truly get a sense of Delhi’s vivacity and why the “Walled City” is its heart.
Visit Khari Baoli and learn about the spices and chilies that various invaders of India brought to the country and which are now so prominent in Indian cuisine.
We don’t go inside as it is closed in the evening, but we think the best view is from outside where you can appreciate the imposing structure.
See the hustle and bustle of the busy markets and people all apparently trying to go to the same place at the same time!
Visit the beautiful Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib. 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!
Wind your way up a narrow staircase and get a breath of fresh air as you take in the madness of Old Delhi from above.
Visit the capital’s oldest and most well known Jain Temple complex and learn about Jainism. (It is also home to the Jain Birds Hospital, a unique place where only vegetarian birds are treated!)
Visit this beautiful temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.
Be dazzled by radiant colors as you walk through Kinari Bazaar, otherwise known as the wedding market.
Fascinating, so impressive how we juggled through Old Delhi with the tuc tuc. The spice markets were hot in the true sense. We were coughing and sneezing as if we just consumed a Handel of chillies. The view from the rooftop of the sunset over Old Delhi was worth every step we climbed and breathtaking beautiful. We experienced a pink sky over Delhi.
Thereafter, we headedto the Sikh Temple and learned all about their religion and even had a moment to share prayers with them.
Many thanks to Vijay for such an indepth Tour, was worth every Rupee.
The tour is very interesting. You really get to places where you can’t reach unless you go with a local. The guide was very friendly and willing to make us have the best time. He answered all our questions and we had great conversation with him. Thank you Stanley, you are the best. I recommend this tour.
The only thing to improve is the description of the meeting point, which was hard to find, but Stanley looked for us until he found us so we had no problem in the end.
I toured Old Delhi with Sagar. We went to places that would be impossible to find on your own – secret rooftops and hidden passages. I learnt so much about the city and it’s history. There was lots of opportunity to take photos and ask questions. Finishing with a fascinating visit to a Sikh temple enriched with Sagar’s personal insights. A great way to discover more of Delhi and India.
Stanley the guide was excellent. Knowledgeable and pleasant and helpful. Some of shops are closed on Monday. Still, Old Delhi is vibrant and fascinating.
I really enjoyed all the tour experience around several markets in Old Delhi. For a first time in Old Delhi, this was for me the best way of diving in the dynamics of the city. Stanley, the tour guide, was always very helpful, explaining me in as much detail as I ask, and making me feel as a local. I was also impressed by the community service of Reality Tours & Travel, Highly recommended!!!
