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.

Such a brilliant tour of Old Delhi with Vijay! We tried some delicious street foods and learnt about the culture and history of this fascinating place! Thank you!
Stanley is a gem!
Linda_A, Apr 2023
Stanley was a gem of a guide. He was patient and kept track of us as he guided us from place to place. I loved using the metro. I love trying the food. I loved seeing more of old Delhi with Stanley as my guide. Thanks for a great and educational evening!
Tastes, sound and sights with Stanley!
Mark_C, Apr 2023
Everything about this tour was amazing, Stanley the guide was fantastic, the food was varied and delicious, and the street life unbelievable! If we weren't on a package tour I would definitely want Stanley for more tours!
Absolute must!
Lucie_N, Apr 2023
We loved this tour! Our guide Stanley was a wealth of knowledge. He did a fab job sharing with us the delicious food Old Delhi has to offer and taking us to places we would not normally venture ourselves. The food was superb with the chole being our favourite. Arrive hungry as there are so many wonderful dishes to taste.
Absolutely DELHI-teful!

Vijay was a fantastic guide navigating us through the streets of old Delhi to try delicious treats. Some of the spots I had seen on YouTube before arriving, but without his help, I don’t trust I could’ve found them.
Best way to see (and taste) Old Delhi
Censimelia_W, Apr 2023
A great way to try local and very tasty street food. We would never have found some of these places without this tour as they were well hidden, not to mention we wouldn't know what we were eating. This is a great way to see old Delhi. It would have been impossible for us to navigate this very busy area on our own.
Fantastic, half day tour
Daniel_H, Mar 2023
My most unexpected, enjoyable tour. It’s full on for four hours. Be hungry! The tour guide Sam was knowledgeable friendly, funny, generous and helpful. The area where we went, was amazing to see. Literally complete chaos, I would never have the confidence to go to the cool places he had sourced. A definite tour to do!
Excellent tour
M_L, Mar 2023
Yummy tour of Old Delhi. It can be a bit intimidating navigating the area, especially when it comes to street food. Sam was amazing at guiding us around, very accommodating and the food was obviously really good. I have also enjoyed all the little tidbits of history and culture. Thank you for a great experience!
Fantastic Food tour

Good, but be prepared to share food
Jasper_L, Mar 2023
Overall nice tour, with good food. However, I felt sharing food with people you do not know was not very hiegenic in some cases (e.g. drinking out of same cup, or using same bowl and spoon with multiple people).
Food tour of old Delhi
Raj_M, Feb 2023
I loved walking through crowded Old Delhi and feeling safe in the company of our guide Vijay. We got to see so much and best of all sample lots of local food.
Just superb.
Andy_T, Feb 2023
An amazing immersive experience for my first day in Delhi, our guide was extremely knowledgable and the food was superb. Would recommend to anybody that wants to see a different side of Delhi
Easy and efficient way to see Old Delhi
Sixtine_G, Feb 2023
We had a wonderful time with our tour guide Stanley. Our favorite part was interacting with the shop vendors who were happy to see us and kindly let us take their picture as they made our food. Stanley and his company have built relationships with the vendors who have a good reputation for cleanliness and have been around for generations. It was nice that we didn’t have to barter for the prices of food or transportation. Stanley took care of all of that for us. The food was delicious and introduced me to some of my favorite food I’ve tried so far in Delhi. Overall, I’d highly recommend this tour.
Street food tour
Sheena_D, Feb 2023
Our guide was friendly enough. The food was tasty interesting locations visited and nobody fell ill. However, given that we paid around 65 USD for a street food tour in Dehli, we were given VERY LITTLE FOOD! We were often given small portion to share between 4 of us at each food point, which the guide also shared. It was very disappointing. Not good value for money at all. To add, when offered a meat kebab which I was unable to eat no alternative was suggested, so I missed out on a meal.
Nicholas_R, Feb 2023
All of the food was amazing and it was really cool to see Old Delhi. The chole bhature was my favorite. And nobody got sick!
Walking evening food tour of Old Delhi
mikeleevers, Feb 2023
All the differnt foods. The crowds and hussle and bussle on the streets of Old Delhi. Riding the rickshaws and the subway. Seeing the local people working and going about their lives
Rachel_L, Jan 2023
Chandi Chowk is probably the most intense pocket of Delhi, old or new, and Veejay took us on an unforgettable tour de mouth. Curry chilli spice blow your head off rip your heart out delicious food. All whilst riding an Indian rollercoaster. What’s not to love?
Great tour and guide
Ken_T, Jan 2023
We were met at a very convenient location and our guide was there early. We had a great tour around Chandri Chowk, which was an amazing place but not somewhere I would have felt safe visiting at night without a guide. We sampled lots of food and everything was explained to us. Fantastic experience. Not to be missed
