Experience parts of Delhi largely unseen by travellers on these unique tours, which include biking around the twisting gulleys of Old Delhi and learning to cook Indian food with a local family.

India’s capital city Delhi is the first point of entry for most travellers, and one of the country’s most popular destinations. Steeped in history, and shaped by five dynasties, Delhi has a lot to offer lovers of art, history and culture. Once you’ve had your fill of the city’s classic sites, these tours can offer a glimpse of life in this colourful, chaotic city that visitors rarely get to see.



Take a journey through the marvelous Akshardham Temple, where you witness the enormity and beauty of this exceptional monument under the guidance and knowledge of a private expert guide. Visit the temple, appreciate its splendor, and watch the exceptional musical fountain show to experience Indian faith at its best.



What makes my experience unique is that you will experience everything by doing, from mouthwatering food to culture, from religious knowledge to local life of a Delhi-ite.In this experience you will taste a variety of delicious street food from multi-generations-old food joints, which have been tried and tested for safety, and learn about their backstory and their secret ingredients.It’s not just a food tour; it’s more than that. We will visit Sikh Gurdwara and their Kitchen where 15,000-plus people eat for free every day. There you can experience joy of giving and selflessness and you can be a volunteer too.We will also visit Asia’s largest spice market and learn about spices and why we use spices in old Delhi.Lastly we will visit secret rooftop and enjoy the view of old Delhi and spice market from the top.
