Your private guide will meet you at your Delhi hotel, where you’ll travel in air-conditioned comfort to Old Delhi. This ancient walled portion of the city was once the capital during the Mughal Dynasty. Wander the neighborhood known as Ballimaaran, where private mansions—including one that belonged to Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib—line the streets. Your guide will share information about the history and architecture of these iconic buildings known as havelis.
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.
