Description

This tour combines culture and traditions, food and drink, past and present, monuments and their history, places to photograph, temples and mosques, ancient and modern, daily lifestyle, transport, politics and economics, rules and regulations and much, much more Experience all colours and facets of Delhi on this tour! At the meeting point, your guide will briefly brief you on the sequence of the tour, do's and don'ts, dress code and behaviour towards the local people.

First you will drive to Old Delhi, as it gets very crowded after 12 noon
Visit the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India, built by Shahjahan in the 17th century. More than 2,000 people can pray in this mosque simultaneously. It serves as a good example of Indian and Mughal architecture
Then explore the Chandni Chowk and the spice market with the bicycle rickshaw. The Chandni Chowk is with 400 years the largest and oldest market in Delhi. Translated Chandni Chowk means "Moonlight Market". This originates from the tradition of shopkeepers to set up a market, even at night, in the moonlight. This was for the noble women, as they were not allowed to visit the market at daytime
After you have explored the "Moonlight Market", drive to the Red Fort. This was once the palace of the royal family of India. It was built by Shahjahan, the creator of the Taj Mahal. The entire fort was built of red sandstone. The Red Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Then drive to Raj Ghat, the place where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated. People from all over the world travel to this place to pay tribute to Mahatma Gandhi
The India Gate is the national monument of India and the central point of New Delhi. It was erected in 1931 by the British army as a monument. It is inspired by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris
The House of the President and the Indian Parliament are also British buildings. They date from the 20th century when Delhi became the capital. Unfortunately, these buildings may not be entered without special permission
On your tour, of course, your physical well-being should also be taken care of. In Delhi there are all kinds of food variations. However, you are encouraged to try Indian food in a local restaurant. This is in no way obligatory for you and you are welcome to skip this point of the tour if you wish
Another UNESCO World Heritage Site on your tour is the second Mughal Empire of India, mid-16th century - the tomb of Humayun. This is the first Indian building in Persian style. His grave was built by Humayun's widow Hamida Bano Begam. The world famous Taj Mahal was inspired by this monument
The Lotus Temple is a Bahai Temple of Devotion built in 1986, inspired by the Sydney Opera House. It's closed on Mondays
Qutb Minar, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the oldest monument on your tour. Qutb Minar is not only the oldest brick tower in India, but also the highest at 72.56 metres. The five-storey watchtower was built in the 12th century by Qutb-ud Din Aibak. In the same area you will find many historical monuments such as the mosque Quwwat-ul, Alai Darwaza, Alai Minar, the degree of Iltutmish, the Iron Column or the tomb of Ala ud-Din Khalji
The main attraction of the tour follows at the end: Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the largest Sikh temple in Delhi. Visit the temple and discover what is going on inside the temple
