What You Can Expect
Enjoy a typical Indian meal at Delhi’s largest flea market, Chor Bazaar. You’ll settle in to eat next to locals and travelers and experience the energy of this popular shopping destination.
Once your hunger is satiated, travel with your guide through the back alleys of Ballimaaran, where you’ll get an up close look at modern life existing amid ancient structures. Pass by the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Red Fort and Jama Masjid—the largest mosque in the nation—while your guide shares Old Delhi history with you. Then walk the length of Chandni Chowk, where local markets selling crafts and Indian treats line a bustling square.
Your tour ends with a private transfer back to your Delhi hotel.
Lots of pluses about this tour. I can't think of a better way to immerse oneself in Old Delhi than to walk it. Having a guide made the walk informative, entertaining and safe. My wife and I were impressed with the guide and the driver - on time pick up at hotel and pleasant interactions throughout the day. Perhaps our only criticism would be the lunch which was in an all too touristy restaurant. With a guide it would have been a wonderful opportunity to venture into a place that catered to locals. Also it seems inevitable on any tour in India that we have experienced to be taken to a touristy store or two (in our case a tea shop and a rug store), even though we said at the outset that we had NO interest in shopping. But the drives to the shops was interesting and so not a total loss.

The Fort is the highlight of this tour. Take lots of picturs and enjoy the history, scenery, and above all-the quiet. In the Chandni Chowk you will be wishing you were back in the fort. It is a cesspool that is worth seeing for the spectacle. Enjoy the crush of humanity but watch yourself. It would be insane to bring small children on this tour. This tour is for the experience not the shopping. You will get better quality souvenirs at the Airport- honest. The auto rickshaw ride in the spice market is on par with any roller coaster ride- without any of the safety features. A tour of this area is a must since you would be in serious trouble if attempted on your own.
