Delhi is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world. Old Delhi includes a number of world famous sights Red Fort, Chandni Chowk, Chawadi bazaar, Spice market and a few more. Due to all the history, people, markets and vibe, this is a great location to discover the old world charm of India and specially Delhi city.

This photo tour through this area helps you photograph some of the iconic landmarks as well as lesser known corners of this part of city and also provide a refreshing insight in to the lives of people closely entwined with the older traditions. The guests walk through centuries old bazaars, see some old havelis (mansions), interact with local people going about their daily lives and taste some great local food. Depending upon time available this tour can cover following places
• Chandni Chowk
• Chawari Bazaar (wedding card market)
• Camera Market
• Spice Market
• Laal Kuan (metal market)
• Kinaari Bazaar
• Nayi Sadak ( Book Market)and a few other places. This is a walk through the heart of Delhi city and will stay fresh in memory for life. This photo walk is a great way to capture daily lives of some old fashioned people still stubbornly holding on to old ways in the biggest city of India and experience the contrast between modern day progress and old world charm.

Photography equipment for rent is also available if required.

This was a great introduction to Delhi. I was picked up at my hotel early and met up with Jaidev in Old Delhi. We walked the streets and he pointed out some great photo opportunities. We experimented with panning and using the contours of the walls for interesting perspectives. I even got some shots of monkeys and a mongoose. Half way through, we started to sample food at several locations trying everything from samosas to cookies. I ate enough to skip dinner. They usually visit the spice market but construction made it hard to get to, so we skipped it (and my regular tour visited it the next day). I highly recommend the tour if you have a free day in Delhi.

This was our best tour in India and gave us a much better insight into Old Delhi than the day tour provided by our tour group guide. Our guide, Jaidev, was fantastic, knowledgeable both about Delhi and photography. We met him at the station and then met up with a third tourist, a Canadian. During out introductions, he asked us what we hoped to get out of the tour. We started in the Jama Masjid area and walked through old havelas, now used as shops, selling everything from car spare parts and tools, spices and flowers.We stopped for delicious street food snacks at several places: poori, galub jamun, lassi, little cookies, chai etc, and found a Jain cafe particularly interesting - we had a cheese, mango, grape and strawberry sandwich they don't eat meat. We saw barbers shaving customers in the street and an ear cleaner at work. We saw workmen sitting in front of their tools waiting to be hired. Exciting rides by tuctuc gave us an opportunity for more street shots, and Jaidev gave us hints on how to improve our shots. We finished with more street food, but sadly we were too full to eat it all. Don't miss this tour, especially if you want to get some candid street shots and try the delicious street food.
