Day 1

A trip through Old Delhi is like a trip back in time. The busy streets and constant noise really are an assault on the senses. Your tour of Old Delhi typically starts with Mahatma Ghandi’s Cremation Site - Raj Ghat; followed by Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India which can hold up to a staggering 85’000 people. Built largely from red sandstone this marvel of Indian architecture is a must see attraction in Old Delhi.

Moving on to Chandi Chowk, one of India’s oldest and busiest markets built. This market is noisy and the smell of different foods wafts around. You’ll get a real insight into authentic India and the traders here still sit on mattresses and show their items one by one, a tradition lost in most Indian markets these days. Lunch could be spent at the Gali Paranthe Wali, a famous street in Chandi Chowk selling tasty paratha (Indian Fried Bread) with chutney and potato curry garnish. Take a rickshaw ride from Chandi Chowk to Red For whicht once served as a residence for many Mughal Emperors and is another of Old Delhi’s beautiful red sandstone buildings. Take a leisurely walk around the buildings and imagine how life would have been like to live here.

Onto New Delhi, we begin with Qutub Minar - the highest stone tower in India. Built in 1192, the complex is home to the famous Iron Pillar which has stood for thousands of years without rusting. Moving on to Humayun Tomb (inspiration behind many architectural innovations, including the magnificent Taj Mahal) We view the exterior of Rashtrapati Bhawan (the presidential palace) and finish at the centre of New Delhi - India Gate. An "Arc-de-Triomphe" like archway commemorating the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives during the World War I.
