What better way to experience Indian culture than through an Old Delhi Street Food Tour?
Each region of India has its unique street food and Delhi is no exception. Visit our favorite vendors in Old Delhi and try the local specialties chole bature, dahi bhalla and aloo chat, as well as parathas, lassi and the very sweet but delicious jalebis and the local equivalent of rice pudding and bread and butter pudding.
All of these dishes are vegetarian but meat eaters will have the option to try Indian fried chicken towards the end of the tour. Vegetarians, worry not: you can take the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of the buzzing Matia Mahal neighborhood.
In addition to sampling the best of Old Delhi’s street food, we will also do some sightseeing as we explore the largest spice market in Asia, take a stroll along Chandni Chowk and stop to admire the imposing Jama Masjid. We will absorb the hustle and bustle of the narrow streets as we visit different locations by rickshaw.
Hope you’re hungry!
When in Delhi, eat as the Delhiites do. That means chole bature (fried, puffed bread paired with chickpea curry), parathas (Indian flatbread), dahi bhalla (fried flour balls covered in yogurt) and aloo chat (crispy, tangy, spicy potatoes)!
You can’t go to Old Delhi and not try jalebi from Jalebiwalla. Try this along with kheer (Indian rice pudding) and shahi tukda (bread soaked in milk and nuts, like bread pudding) and you will understand why Indians have a sweet tooth!
Get a great view of the hustle and bustle of the busy markets as we move between locations.
Enjoy this succulent chicken with a twist in chaotic Matia Mahal near the Jama Masjid, as cycle rickshaws and people pass by.
Yes! Well, not always, but the vendors we have carefully selected are perfectly safe and hygienic (hundreds of happy guests and counting!). In fact, this is one of the main motivating factors in designing this tour: we wanted to make India’s incredible street food accessible to visitors.
If you do have any serious allergies feel free to let us know at time of booking and do also let your guide know on tour so that certain foods may be avoided. The range of food on offer means there is plenty for everyone generally however.
Yes! The entire tour is vegetarian except for the last stop, during which you can use the time to soak up the atmosphere of the buzzing Matia Mahal neighborhood.
We’ll try the local specialties chole bature, dahi bhalla and aloo chat, as well as parathas, lassi and the very sweet but delicious jalebis and the local equivalent of rice pudding and bread and butter pudding.
Yes we are fine welcoming children 12 years and over on our normal tour at the responsibility of an accompanying adult. For visitors with children less than 12 years, please get in touch in advance as we would recommend a private tour.
A private tour is for up to 6 people.
Absolutely. Please get in touch if you are the organizer of a group visit: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We provide both a day time tour and an evening tour. The stops may be slightly different but the day time tour is great for people who want to avoid the crowds. The streets of Old Delhi are much more crowded in the evening and the tour is perfect for people who want to soak up the atmosphere of Old Delhi’s chaos!
Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, the food was certainly interesting and yummy, and best of all we felt fine afterwards! A great experience!
We just returned from this tour with out guide Sam. It was just my self and my husband so we really had a terrific personal experience. Just being in Old Delhi is eye opening. I’m not even sure I can accurately describe it or do it justice. Sam took us from subway to streets and by tuk tuks always watching out for us, especially me as I use a cane. He gave a history lesson as well as the most delicious food we’ve had in India this trip. Sam was an outstanding guide, very articulate with excellent english.
He get 5 gold stars from us. I didn’t know about this company and how much it gives back to the community. I am now extra pleased we did this tour and I will highly recommend it and Sam to anyone visiting India.
out cultural experience.
Our tour guide Kavita was so lovely. She is a very likeable person and will tell you historical facts about each area. We highly recommend her.
It is hard for foreigners to find our way through India at times, and we hope this company find a way to fix their location advice, as this was a little painful. But we had to give this tour 5 stars still, due to the incredible night we had.
If you can’t find the meeting place, just call the contact number and they will help.
We took the night tour which in our opinion had the greatest advantage due to vibes and “night life” experience on a Saturday night.
Tuk-tuk through the back tiny streets, loud honking, ridiculously good food, colours of each area, and the friendly people. The spice tour towards the end was fantastic, and one of the stores they take you to (Mehar Chand & Sons) has some great gift options of small packaged masala’s or tea! What a night!
Thanks so much guys. We’re tempted to do this same tour again just because we enjoyed so thoroughly.
My wife and I took the Old Delhi Street Food tour. We were the only people on the tour, so it was a nice intimate setting. Our guide Sam did a great job of showing us around while telling us about the food and the historical Old Delhi area.
We got to experience a Delhi metro train ride, several electric rickshaw rides, a spice market, four different street food dishes (all delicious!), plus dessert.
Sam was gracious and thoughtful.
He took care of arranging rides and ordering food, and was conscious of our safety with hand sanitizer and bottled water.
Reality is a great company, too, investing much of their profits back toward children in the communities where they run tours.
Thank you to our guide, Kavita, for a brilliant tour! I got to see areas and taste foods that I otherwise would not have known how to. While touring, we also learnt about local history and living. Our guide was welcoming, professional, knowledgeable and created a relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend, and plan to book another tour through the same organization.
