Pass By: New Delhi, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

You will be picked up from your hotel in Delhi or Gurgaon city by private, air-conditioned vehicle then driven to three or four of Delhi’s eclectic markets of your choosing.

Stop At: Dilli Haat, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

A government-managed market of traditional arts, crafts, textiles, and cuisines from different parts of India. Popular buys include handicrafts and handlooms (clothing items). On occasion, the amphitheater hosts various cultural performances.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Chandni Chowk, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

This market exemplifies the quintessential feeling of Old Delhi — noisy, busy, and overflowing with goods. People, bicycles, cycle rickshaws and animals jostle for space in the narrow lanes near obscure stores selling anything from wedding wear to jewelry, hardware, and electronics. North Indian snacks are plentiful. (Some wholesale sub-markets closed on Sundays)

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Khan Market, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

One of Delhi’s oldest markets, this complex has a mix of regular stores and up-market restaurants. Stores range from brand names to one-store boutiques and tailors, and shops sell anything from books to cosmetics. Abundant cafes feature all cuisines.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Sarojini Nagar Market, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

Among the more crowded markets, especially on weekends, this market is known for shops selling clothes, ranging from cheap t-shirts to brand stores. The most popular stores are those that sell stylish factory rejects with minor-defects at bargain prices. Bargaining is the norm here. (Closed on Mondays)

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

A chic market located in what used to be a village, it is dotted with contemporary restaurants, designer art stores, and clothing outlets. Various restaurants and bars play host to musical performances, with the Hauz Khas Tomb, the lake, and the deer park located nearby.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Paharganj, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

This congested hub of tourist activity is due to a multitude of budget-accommodating options and eateries.

Duration: 45 minutes

I spent 18 days in SE Asia and took a plethora of tours. The Private Custom Shopping Tour of Delhi's Bustling Markets was my absolute favorite, hands down. Mr. Rajmalani AKA Raj was my tour guide. He is outstanding! Highly competent, articulate, funny, worldly...I could not have asked for a better tour guide/shopping assistant. I felt safe in his company as we traversed the crowded streets of the bustling markets. His choices of stores were neat, clean and exactly what I, as a discerning shopper, wanted. Raj tailored the day to my interests and skipped those things that did not appeal to me. It was the perfect day. You're the best, Raj!

This was a very enjoyable day trip. We had a great guide and very nice driver. The car was very new and comfortable for all 5 of us 3 adults and the guide and driver. The driver did an amazing job of smooth driving through the Delhi traffic. The guide was happy to listen to what we were interested in and to make some suggestions on where was best to shop for those items we wanted to buy. He took his time to tell us about some of Delhis history and about landmarks we passed. We never felt rushed and when we wanted to stop and have coffee, he was happy to do so. As we were touring on Christmas Day, there was some issues with traffic, but our guide was able to adjust by us taking the underground transit a few stops. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean and efficient it was. As good as the Japanese system! Overall an excellent day! Loved the Rickshaw Ride through old Delhi.

Our guide, Raj, was delightful and very informative. We had quite an adventure in several areas of the city, and knew the whole time that we were in very good hands. He tailored our trip to our requests and it was a pleasure to spend this time with him exploring parts of Delhi.

Great to have a guide to go through markets with and explain things about the markets. They will ask what you want to buy and bring you to those markets/specific places or just wander through to look at everything.

Deals, deals, and more deals! My husband and I did quite a bit of shopping in the area of India and I must say that our tour guide was extremely helpful in assisting us with the best deals/identifying quality for the products that we bought. The nice thing about this tour is that our tour guide was extremely flexible in regards to how long we wanted to stay at each market, when we wanted to eat, and order of the schedule. I do not think we could have navigated the markets without her and I know we made the right decision by purchasing this tour. In fact, if we visit India a second time we were so pleased with the service we would purchase this same tour again!

The driver and tour guide were great. I learned about the 4 faiths that started in India. That alone was worth the money. Both the driver and the guide were friendly and kind. I enjoyed the restaurant they took us to for lunch. The food was Amazing. The only thing I didn't like was it seemed like the places they took us to shop were overpriced. I didn't know until I went to other places on my own and saw the same things sold for 1/2 the price I paid. I still would recommend the tour just to see the sites and to go to the places/areas to do great shopping. I would just shop at the places you choose and not by anything in the places they take you into.
