What you'll do

The Mughal Empire, at its zenith, commanded vast levels of wealth & glory, spanning across almost the entire Indian subcontinent. Delhi was a key city & served as the capital for many decades. We shall explore it as it was in the heyday of the empire; known for their extravagant architecture, the Mughals have left behind a plethora of imposing structures, each with a distinct identity and a unique story! We’ll start from Shahjahanabad, or Old Delhi, established by Shah Jahan in the 17th century; with places like Jama Masjid, Red Fort, Fatehpuri Masjid & the bazaar of Chandni Chowk, this city still oozes of the same grandeur that it did back then! After exploring the monuments and trying some traditional delicacies, we'll move to see the Old Fort and Safdarjung's Tomb, before our last leg in the area of Nizamuddin; a place that not only houses the tomb of one of the 1st Mughal emperors Humayun, but also the Haveli of the legendary poet Ghalib! With our years of experience & research, this tour will keep you engaged in unheard tales & provide information that is not accessible in the public domain. At last, we’ll conclude the tour back in Old Delhi with high-tea & high spirits!
