What you'll do

We will explore the colorful culture of Old Delhi along with her backstories, sumptuous foods, and hyper-local experiences. We begin our journey from the Jama Masjid built in 17th century by Shah Jahan, then walking along the walls of Red Fort we will grab the history of Delhi Sultanate. Next, we stop at a very special place of worship 'Sisganj Sahib Gurudwara' (a Sikh place of worship)! You will feel a sense of peace and spiritual upliftment inside this holy shrine. Then we head to a rooftop of a local family to witness the fascinating game of ''Kabootarbaazi" (Pigeon flying), which involves trained pigeons flying in groups and convincing other pigeons to leave their own flock and join them instead! Along the way, we will try 2 lip-smacking Delhi delicacies - Jalebi and Samosa, while enjoying the bustling market of Chandni Chowk. The walk then takes us to the calm and peaceful Fatehpuri Mosque - an oasis in the chaos of Chandni Chowk. And then to the spice market - Asia's largest! The walk ends at a spectacular rooftop providing a wholistic view of Chandni Chowk.
