What to expect

After getting picked up from the hotel, you will see the Parliament House and India Gate. Edwin Lutyens, the celebrated British architect, designed the Parliament House in a circular coliseum shape. The constitution of independent India was drafted here, and the building remains the seat of the largest democracy in the world. The India Gate is a war memorial arch, which Lutyens built in the honor of British Indian Army soldiers, who attained martyrdom in the Afghan wars and World War–I. Then, your next stop will be Connaught Place. This grand old market remains a major shopping hub in Delhi, and many well-known brands have their outlets here. Quite a few deeply revered temples are also situated here.

Then, you will be driven to Old Delhi. Check out the chaotic old markets such as Chandni Chowk and Dariba Kalan here. These places are full of legendary eating outlets, as well as scores of shops, selling myriad items such as jewelry, spices, clothes and almost every other conceivable thing. In Old Delhi, you will also see the Jama Masjid, which is easily one of the grandest mosques in the world. A top highlight of your tour would be a rickshaw ride through the serpentine traffic-clogged streets of Old Delhi, where vehicles, human beings and animals rub shoulders. Finally, you will be dropped off at your hotel by late afternoon.
