Itinerary This Delhi city tour has it all - you'll experience the best of Delhi with great street food, markets, bazaars, temples, and famous historical sites. Stop and sample a samosa from a street stall, wander through narrow alleyways, and see the sights, smells, and people of Delhi front and center. Explore a local market where goods on offer range from wedding paraphernalia to cow dung on a string (seriously). Check out sights linked to the 1857 Mutiny (also known as India's First War of Independence), a ruthless put down by British colonial forces and precursor to a later more peaceful struggle for independence led by Mahatma Gandhi in the early 1900s. Your local guide will provide a background into India's more recent history and struggle for independence. Pay a visit to local temples dedicated to the various Hindu gods, and gain insight into the religion of Hinduism, at one of the more spiritual moments on our Delhi tour. At the end of your Delhi city tour, your guide can assist with arranging a taxi back to your accommodation or is happy to provide tips and suggestions for further exploration in Delhi.
