Take an express train to see the Taj Mahal at sunrise, or eat the best vegetarian street food in India’s kebab-loving capital city with these surprising new ways to experience Delhi.

Loved by over 40s

Delhi is one of the only places in the world where the past is often just as vocal as the present. Mughal-era monuments stand alongside modern-day coffee houses, and the sprawling labyrinth of Old Delhi is just an hour’s drive from the striking architecture of Lutyens Delhi. These tours shed new light on some of Delhi’s classic experiences.

Tours

Our tours are conducted by Truly Old Delhi Locals living in Old Delhi. It’s a combination of Food, Heritage & Cultural experience with walking and Cycle Rickshaw rides. It is an authentic and unique experience, off the eaten / beaten path and a feast for all the senses.You will get introduced to local life on the street and also get to know the life of locals behind the doors by visiting Masterji Kee Haveli -an Old Private Mansion in the old city in which a single family is living for generations.

Tours

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 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.
