What To Expect

Meet your guide near Rajiv Chowk Metro Station in central Delhi, and set off to discover the Indian capital’s street food.

Delve into bustling Old Delhi, and hear about the tastes and traditions of its snacks, and the history of the walled city. Stop at different stands to try local staples: the foods you that will amount to dinner, snacks and drinks, so come with an appetite!

Sample specialties like soft paratha flatbreads and spiced aloo chaat potatoes, and learn about their historical roots. Along with savory goodies, taste some sweet specialties. Try some super-sweet, deep-fried jalebis, sip on a lassi (frothy, yogurt drink) and savor local rice pudding and bread-and-butter pudding.

Most food is vegetarian, but if you’re a meat-eater, opt to taste some delicious Indian-style fried chicken. Vegetarians, worry not: at this point, you’re free to explore the surrounding Matia Mahal neighbourhood.

Observe local life and Delhi’s illuminated landmarks, and hop between the food hotspots by foot and cycle rickshaw. On route, view the imposing Jama Masjid mosque and explore Asia’s biggest spice bazaar.

End your tour at the start point, where your guide will provide directions for exploring further or back to your hotel.

Great Tour
Daniella_A, Mar 2020
This was well organized. Tour guide (Kavita) was amazing and fierce. Navigating Old Delhi as a tourist would have been close to impossible, without her expertise. All the food we tried was great and has become some of my favorites. Thanks for a great tour.
Go For It!

This was great fun. Sagar was a splendid guide and gave a great insight into life in Delhi. The food was unreal. Honestly would struggle to pick my favourite stop out of my top 4, really wonderful food I’d have had no chance of Sam paling without local assistance. I’d do this tour again and I’d recommend it to anyone with a little spirit of adventure and a love of food and culture.
HIGHLIGHT OF MY TRIP TO DELHI
Claire_M, Feb 2020
This was the best part of my trip to Delhi! Our guide, Sagar, was beyond excellent! It's not just a food tour, but really your gateway into all the experiences you might want to have in New Delhi: riding rickshaws, metro, tackling the crowds, getting out and really enjoying the streets. I was intimidated to do this alone as a female traveler, but Sagar held us by the hands and took the hard work out of it. Highly highly recommended and a total bargain. Meetup is across the street from the location they list* not in front of the shop. Just a heads up!
Dine out Old Delhi Style
Tracy_S, Feb 2020
We met our guide Sagar at the metro station and after a few minutes introducing ourselves we set out on our food tour. We took the metro, walked through the streets of Old Delhi, a few tut tuts and ate some totally delicious food. All made possible by our wonderful guide Sagar who was charming, full of knowledge and had a great sense of humour. If you're thinking to do this tour, just do it. Definitely an evening to remember
A great way to experience old Delhi . Our guide was a wonderful young Indian lady who had a wealth of information ,

Food great and safe to eat . Great guide and an experience I will not forget . Old Delhi food that you would not experience without a guide .
Good food, fun guide, but lots of travel time
Laura, Feb 2020
Kavita was a delight of a guide: responsive, funny and efficient. The tour itself was fine. All the stops were great: lots of diversity in the food and good quality. I myself would have liked if it would have included less travel and more just being in a place. The 5pm tour took us through very crowded streets, loud intersections, busy metro stations and long travels on a day that was 'quiet compared to normal'. More tour, less travel!
