After hotel pickup in Delhi or Gurgaon, travel by air-conditioned vehicle to three or four Delhi markets of your choosing. At each one, enjoy time to shop independently before rejoining your guide and continuing to the next. Your itinerary is flexible, so you set the pace and time at each market.
Perhaps start at Chandni Chowk in central Old Delhi. Explore the labyrinthine lanes of this famous market, weaving through the crowds and rickshaws for jewelry, electronics, fabrics, and Indian snacks.
If you're souvenir hunting, perhaps make tracks for Dilli Haat, a government-authorized market selling traditional Indian arts and handicrafts; or visit Hauz Khas Village, an arty hub of boutiques, cafés, and galleries.
Alternatively, head for Khan Market, a mix of top brands, bookshops, and Indian and international restaurants. There's also Paharganj, a touristy hot spot of budget-friendly clothes, trinket shops, and tailors’ cubbyholes that handcraft Indian clothes to order.
Perhaps finish at Sarojini Nagar for bargain clothes and factory outlets, or decide to hit the modern malls of Saket and Gurgaon. These busy centers offer department stores, food courts, and masses of electronic and homeware outlets, and are ideal for some relaxed retail therapy.
Finish your day of shopping with transport back to your hotel.
