Discover Delhi the way locals do, by local transport!
Metros, buses and tuk-tuks!
This tour begins in Connaught Place and starts with a short metro ride to Dhobi Ghat (laundry) where you will see the hard working people of Delhi washing, scrubbing and drying some of the many white sheets from hotels across the city. We then walk to an nearby ancient step well, rumoured to have been built in 10th century and rebuilt in the 14th century, containing 103 steps.
From there we will get a local bus to India Gate, the monument similar in design to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris which commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting during World War I.
We’ll then get an auto rickshaw (tuk-tuk) to Humayun’s Tomb, one of the must do sites in Delhi where you can get lost in its beauty. Nearby is the fascinating Nizamuddin Dargah where you can observe Muslim pilgrims giving offerings.
After another rickshaw and metro ride, we’ll end up in Khan Market, one of Asia’s most expensive shopping areas, for a bite to eat and for a well earned rest!
We’ll then head to Gandhi Smriti, a museum dedicated to the life of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, and the place where he spent his last few days before being assassinated.
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, before heading back to Connaught Place where the tour ends
