    Chandni Chowk
    Stop: 4 hours
    The tour kicks off 12pm from outside Chandni Chowk Metro Gate 5 where you'll be greeted by your foodie guide. You can't do anything without a blessing, so the first stop at a Hindu temple gets you set for the day. Start with a small bowl of soaked vadas covered in creamy yogurt and topped with pomegranate seeds, something you'll have never seen in any Indian takeaway back home. Walking with your guide, they'll explain local life and give you an idea of the foodie scene in Old Delhi. In quick succession, you'll grab a clay cup of sweet frothy lasse before working your way over the finest jalebi in India. As you let your food settle, you'll dive into an enormous Sikh temple to take a tour of their 24-hour kitchen which feeds over 30,000 Delhites from all walks of life every single day. Try your hand at making chapattis and stirring enormous pots big enough to feed an army.  Now it's time to jump into the maze of Old Delhi. Your guide will take you on a walking tour around the narrow streets carefully negotiating passing cows, cycle rickshaws and tiny vendors where you'll stop to try titbits like pani puris, tasty pakoras and stuffed parathas from a little place that's been churning them out for almost a century. If you travel in winter, you may even be able to have a taste of a Delhi specialty - a white mousse-like dish covered in saffron and nuts that's often described as being as fluffy as a cloud. Your guide will lead you up the steps to a secret little restaurant that's got no sign outside to try one of the best paneer masala curries in the city, before washing it down with a masala lime soda nearby. Continue weaving through the winding back alleys until you hit the fragrant spice market. After a walk and talk about the spices and herbs used in Indian cuisine, you'll head up some secret steps to a magnificent rooftop overlooking the spice market and the rest of Delhi. Take some time to relax, take photos and sip on tea delivered to the roof by a local chaiwalla.  Rested up, it's on to the final leg where you'll try several deserts including a carrot halva and a traditionally Mughal dish made from vermicelli noodles topped with a creamy nutty layer. As you walk back to the Chandni Chowk Metro, your guide will have a paan made for you - a betal leaf filled with dried fruits, syrups and other good things. The perfect end to your foodie adventure in Delhi.

We had an absolutely wonderful time with Gajendra! I have done A Chefs Tour in Chiang Mai and I think this one was even better! My friends and I said among ourselves after that we simply would not have been able to navigate Old Delhi on our own. Gajendra was a total gem - he had so much information, not only about the food but about the culture and daily lives of people. The 4 hours flew by! It was also great to go into the Sikh temple and up to the top of the Spice Market - these little touches put it way above a standard food tour. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Delhi.

Tip: wear comfy shoes you don’t mind getting destroyed. It rained the day we went and the old town was one big mud puddle!

Hello Kathleen, It was so nice to see you again on our tour, this time at Delhi. We are pleased that the experience went beyond your expectations and you had a fantastic time. Indeed, Gajendra is a gem of this tour! He will surely be thrilled to hear your feedback as we share this to him. We hope the remaining of your Indian trip had been excellent too. Looking forward to see you once again on our other tour locations! Best, Erica @ A Chef's Tour

The tour was amazing! When we arrived our guide was already waiting for us and we went straight into the hustle and bustle to try some incredible food! Almost all of the foods we would not have even known about without the amazing GS so we really found value in doing this tour before we saw the rest of India!
If you are wanting to experience all sorts of food and be guided confidently through some of the tight streets you've got to go with these guys! You won't regret it!!
