Such a rewarding experience! Our guide Ash (Ashwani), was very informative and passionate about the tour. His English was excellent as was his awareness of his surroundings. I could never imagine visiting the streets of Old Delhi without a good guide. Our shuttle driver "Bill," was also very professional and arrived on time. Our online contact, Shikah, answered our preliminary questions in a very timely fashion. However, what stands out the most, is the timing of the tour. A lot of thought and time-tested experience has gone into this tour. It is very well designed and operates with precision. Pay the extra to have a private tour and you will be glad you did. Well done!

This was an incredible experience. Aditya was a chef and introduced us to an outstanding tasting of many authentic Indian dishes. From food stalls to sidewalk restaurants, we were tasting all that Delhi had to offer. Chef Aditya included interesting details about the history of Delhi. We enjoyed Tuk Tuk rides as well as taxi excursions throughout old Delhi and then New Delhi. Do not miss this food tour.

This was the highlight of our visit to Delhi! They were kind enough to let us reschedule as we both arrived feeling a little under the weather.
Āditya was a great guide ! Very knowledgeable and adapted the tour for our preferences and what we wanted to see. The food was unique and delicious, definitely not anything we would have found on our own. If you're wondering, this tour is absolutely worth it!

We really enjoyed this tour! We got to try so many different foods and there was so much to eat that we couldn’t finish it all because we were too full. Aditya Shahi was a wonderful guide, friendly and knowledgeable. Our favorite had to be the Kulfi- ice cream filled in the fruit skin.

Do this as early as you can in your travels. The food tour is great in that you get exposed to lots of Indian foods. In total we ate about 12 items and we were so full by 8 but I'm glad it was that then them not giving us enough. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about food and friendly and it didn't feel rushed at all. Some of the places we ate were certainly not ones I'd be adventurous to try alone. My only feedback is how to give is perhaps some more variety in the styles of food we ate - it was very bread and curry heavy, but maybe that's Indian food? Overall very well worth it.

Our Delhi food tour today was a fabulous insider tour of Delhi with amazing food. My daughter and I were picked up from our accommodation by our driver in an airconditioned car. Our guide Jaidev took us through Old Delhi food markets & laneways to family food shops and finished in New Delhi small family restaurants. Some of the tour was walking, some by rickshaw and some in our car. All the food was delicious, with lots of variety. Safe food is a priority on this tour, it was so well organised and we absolutely loved it. Thank you Jaidev and our driver.

I went on a tour with Shikha and her colleague around Delhi in August 2018 and had a great time. I sampled a lot of delicious Indian food and learnt a lot about flavours and spices.

Shikha was a great guide - she spoke excellent English, was organised, kind, considerate of people's dietary requirements and spice tolerances and relayed a lot of information about Indian cuisine. Shikha even kindly sent me a list of the food items eaten during the tour for my information and a list of recommended restaurants for my onward travel.

I would really recommend this food tour of Delhi.

I would advise guests to ensure they start the tour on an empty stomach and only eat small amounts of the delicious food provided at the start otherwise they will become too full too quickly.

Thank you Shikha for a great day!

Would recommend! I've said it before and I'll say it again. I LOVE food tours and this one didn't disappoint. I really enjoy Indian food and wanted to be sure I hit all the must-eats. It's a long tour and you should be prepared to walk. It's also very hot, but water is provided whenever you need. Definitely make sure to come hungry - there are so many food stops and everything is delicious, but make sure to pace yourself (our guide recommended only try a few bites of each dish). Our guide was great - personable and well versed on the food and culture. We were in the saket district, so the tour organized a car to pick us up and drop us off and we paid that expense on our own.

I took this tour the first time I was in New Delhi in late 2013 and loved it. I’m back for a few days with friends, one of whom booked this tour for us. I was happy to see that it was with the same company. The four of us were met by Shikha at Chandni Chowk, after being picked up at our hotel by our driver for the day. This food tour was as memorable as the first one and had very few repeats. Fortunately two of my favorites were still on the tour - the fruit sandwich and the kulfi. Shikha personalized the tour for us - two of my friends had just learned their daughter had become engaged, so as we walked through the wedding area, we stopped in a couple invitation places and one of them gave my friends a sample of an Indian wedding card. We learned a lot about the best way to enjoy the dishes we had; Shikha made sure to caution us in pacing in order to enjoy the day; gave us a great tip on taking a time lapse photo in the market; made sure we had enough water, hand sanitizer, wet wipes and tissues. Bathroom stops were included. The tour took us through Old Delhi, where we walked, rode in both bicycle and electric tuk-tuks, before leaving the crazy chaos to go to New Delhi, where we finished with fire paan. A terrific way to spend the day in New Delhi!
