This custom city walk in Old Delhi and New Delhi was a mix of food tasting and shopping for shoes, clothing,  jewelry and spices in New Delhi.  We spent around 9 hours in Old Delhi and New Delhi in total visiting 8 shops for food tasting and a few more for the shopping part.

REVIEW :

Just book it!  We did a custom tour that was half food tour in Old Delhi and half shopping. I was completely blown away – the quality of everything was amazing! All the food was delicious. And, just as everyone else has stated nobody got sick. The shopping was the best! Raj helped to ensure that we got really good deals and that we went to quality places. Don’t hesitate, just booked this tour.

REVIEW:

Excellent tour, we ate so much food! Jaidev was very informative and was keen to know our preferences. We’d say this is the best way to sample the street food, to learn about the different ways of cooking. Thoroughly recommended.

Tripadvisor Review: 

We had a fabulous day in Old Delhi. Our guide Jaidev (spelling) took great care to ensure we were safe and enjoying ourselves. We had 8-9 Street snacks and then a full lunch! A lot of food! All of the snacks were delicious and I wanted to finish them all, but he kept warning us to not over eat and save room for the next treat. Good thing we listened to him! All treats were vegetarian and I was amazed at the variety. My favorite was the sweet milk foam with saffron and sugar, which is only sold during winter and in Old Delhi. It was like eating a sweet cloud!
He told us the streets were “quiet” but for us it was chaotic, loud, and exciting! My girlfriend said, “It was exhilarating!”
He told us stories of the shop owners, some over 4 generations owned and run. Tremendous pride in their products. He also showed us 300 year old buildings and I could imagine by his descriptions what the place must have been like back then. I was pleasantly surprised at how the shop keepers kept their places swept and cleaned. We were out for about 6 hours and walked maybe 1.5 miles. We walked in the back alleys and also took a rickshaw ride down the Main Street, not for the faint of heart! I would definitely recommend this tour, all places we stopped at were safe to eat (no tummy issues!) and definitely worth the time to go with an experienced guide. Loved it, will talk about it for years to come!
