Select a morning or afternoon departure, and after pickup from your Delhi hotel travel to the Hauz Khas heritage area.
On arrival, meet your private guide, and set off on your walking tour around this delightful corner of south Delhi. Hear about Hauz Khas, learning how it was part of the 13th-century city of Siri during the Muslim kingdom of the Delhi Sultanate. Discover how it developed around a large reservoir, with monuments and mosques overlooking the water.
Stroll around the picturesque Deer Park, following the pathways and watching for the free-roaming deer, parakeets, rabbits, and peacocks. Then, wander around the 13th- and 14th-century ruins framing the reservoir. Explore the atmospheric remains of a madrasa (Islamic school), royal tomb, mosque, and pavilions as your guide recounts their stories and secrets.
Lastly, delve into nearby Hauz Khas Village, popularly known as HKV, set in the Deer Park. This trendy retail and urban village draws Delhi’s young and hip crowd with boutiques, designer stores, antique emporiums, music spots, galleries, and quirky eateries.
Browse the shops and lanes, and break for chai (milky tea) or a snack before a return drive to your hotel, where your tour ends.
