Tour description

"I asked my soul what is Delhi? She replied, The world is the body and Delhi it's life"     - Mirza Ghalib

One of Delhi's favourite sons and poet laureate Mirza Ghalib has described the greatness of this city through this short couplet. Delhi is a city that is steeped in history and culture yet, it is hurtling toward the 21st century with a newfound confidence! It is a city unlike any other where one can find ancient ruins littered in between a city that houses 25 million people.

My tour of New Delhi will make you experience this synergy of the modern and the medieval.
The tour will start from Jorbagh metro station and we will end at Khan market. We will visit the 18th-century safdurjung tomb and the story behind its cannibalized building material, The Lodhi gardens and the mystery of its eight pillared bridge, the Lodhi art district and its Instagramable locations, and many more things!
