Experience Delhi, not simply as a sightseeing tour BUT experience the city through our eyes on the whole with its past and present, with its beliefs and its culture that co-exist. This is off the beaten / eaten tourist path,which is refreshing and authentic.If you can only do one thing in Delhi... LET THIS BE IT. You will get a completely different look of India through the eyes of the local family living in the same area. You will be personally leaded around the neighborhood's winding streets, sharing the neighborhood's rich history, delicious food & culture. After the walk, you will visit and enjoy complimentary home made meal at one of the last standing beautiful Haveli (Old- Family Living- Private Mansion- in the Old City) of Delhi. The Masterji Kee Haveli(Old- Family Living- Private Mansion- in the Old City) has a terrace from where, there are views of Old Delhi in all its higgledy-piggledy chaos. « less

We spent a delightful morning with Dhruv followed by lunch at his home (Haveli). We experienced a side of Delhi that you would not normally see as as tourist and we would thoroughly recommend this walking tour to anyone coming to this amazing city.

We did this tour on our last day in India, after having traveled around, mostly with local friends who we know from graduate school, to a number of areas. We wanted to see some of Delhi and the friend who we were staying with had to work. The tour was fine - we certainly got to see some of Old... More

Great comm's, before arriving, to partially tailor the tour. As a lone traveller, it was arranged for me to pair up with another single lady as we had similar interests. Anju lead our tour and showed us as much as was humanly possible! We met Local traders, shops/temples visited, food/drink sampled etc etc! The tour ended with a delicious meal... More

I can't say enough good things about this tour. We had the best day walking through Old Delhi. We climbed to a roof top and watch men wrangling pigeons, we sampled street food, visited the Singh temple, rode rickshaws, visited the Spice market, and ended the day with dinner in the tour operator's restored haveli with fireworks on his roof....

Indeed a delightful day it was walking around Old Delhi. Dhruv constantly and pleasantly surprised us with samples of delicious local food, drinks and lots of unforgettable experiences—rickshaw rides, henna tattoos, making Roti…. the most wonderful surprise was at the end of our tour. Thank you Dhruv, for this amazing day!

As a female traveller without a male companion in a city that can be dangerous, it was important for me to feel safe. Dhruv (our English tour guide) was attentive and provided us with a no-fuss, safe tour. He was knowledgeable in the area's history and took lots of candid pictures which he sent to us later on. I was... More

A trip round the old commercial heart of Delhi. Pausing (regularly) to sample food and take in some of the more esoteric pleasures Delhi has to offer. A wealth of information was shared and some very interesting sights. A highlight was the "Pigeon Pinching" experienced from a rooftop with views out over Delhi, the owners controlling their flocks with shrieking... More
