What to expect
  • Meet your guide near Rajiv Chowk Metro Station in central Delhi, and set off to discover the Indian capital’s street food. Delve into bustling Old Delhi, and hear about the tastes and traditions of its snacks, and the history of the walled city. Stop at different stands to try local staples: the foods you that will amount to dinner, snacks and drinks, so come with an appetite! Sample specialties like soft paratha flatbreads and spiced aloo chaat potatoes, and learn about their historical roots. Along with savory goodies, taste some sweet specialties. Try some super-sweet, deep-fried jalebis, sip on a lassi (frothy, yogurt drink) and savor local rice pudding and bread-and-butter pudding. Most food is vegetarian, but if you’re a meat-eater, opt to taste some delicious Indian-style fried chicken. Vegetarians, worry not: at this point, you’re free to explore the surrounding Matia Mahal neighbourhood. Observe local life and Delhi’s illuminated landmarks, and hop between the food hotspots by foot and cycle rickshaw. On route, view the imposing Jama Masjid mosque and explore Asia’s biggest spice bazaar. End your tour at the start point, where your guide will provide directions for exploring further or back to your hotel.

Reality tours hghly recommendable
Nov 2021
I did several tours with reality tours and it was really convincing. I loved it. Abhishek did the best and explained to me, whatever I needed to know. As a solo female traveller he took excellent care of me and Delhi was my first stop and it is my first time to India. I can highly recommend the tour and the best, the support a NGO and give opportunities to the less priviledged. I recommend the tours - food tour (I really had no stomach issue afterwards), the street art tour, the sighseeing tour as well as the old Delhi tour from the bottom of my heart.

Excellent street food tour by likeable local
Excellent!
- Great food from all the little places, you would never find as a tourist on your own. The food included snacks, sweets, bread and (if you are a non-veg eater) fantastic fried chicken.
- You will be full afterwards so don’t eat too much at each place
- Our guide Abi was really friendly, helpful and charismatic. We felt very safe and entertained in his company. Also great history lessons. Abi also made sure we got home safely with the metro 🌟

Great food!
The tour was great, the food was delicious, and although we were a little worried, no one got sick (thank God! We were flying the next day). The guide, Abhishek, was very nice and knew his way around very well. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because I would have liked the tour to be a little more informative. Still, definitely worth it.

Couldn't ask for a better welcome to Delhi
Dec 2019
Having just landed, we decided to throw ourselves in at the deep end - what a great decision. This was an excellent tour of Old Delhi, which is an area that we'd have struggled to navigate ourselves, and the food was superb. Highly recommended

Really recommend!
This tour is a great way to see old Delhi at night because trying to see this area on your own is very hard.
The food options are delicious and they take you to a great variety of places.

Great night out in Old Delhi
Mar 2020
My guide Abhishek was excellent. He was very fun and informative. The food was fantastic and the walking/public transport (especially in the rickshaw) was adventurous.
I am travelling alone and this tour allowed me to get to see Old Delhi safely in the evening. I also got to meet a friendly couple who were also taking the tour.
Tip: Wear walking shoes because there is quite a bit of walking.

Tasty treats in the heart of Old Delhi
Feb 2020
The whole trip was excellent. We got to the heart of the old city of Delhi and experienced the buzz of street life with an exceptional tour leader. We tried a selection of very tasty foods and drinks. Often when travelling there's a risk of getting stomach problems from street food so It was great to have a guide with us who could take us to authentic places to eat and drink where these concerns weren't an issue. It was a great introduction to India.

Great food!
Feb 2020
I took this tour on a day off from my work assignment in Delhi as I wanted to sample the likes of chaat, jalebis etc with a local expert rather than roaming around on my own! I was very impressed. Sam, the tour guide, met me at Connaught Place/Rajiv Chowk and guided me round the different stalls and bazaars in Old Delhi with no trouble at all - what's more, the food was absolutely delicious! A nice mix of sweet and savoury along with some chai as we wanted to add in something extra given I was not a meat eater. Overall I strongly recommend!
