Delhi is a treasure trove that reveals the ultimate combination of tradition and trends. Delhi is in fact really two distinct cities - the energy, colour and the thronged bazaars and Mughal architecture of Old Delhi, contrasts with the formal splendour of New Delhi, whose wide boulevards offer ever-changing perspectives of Lutyen's landscaped city. The division between New and Old Delhi is the distinction between the capitals of the British and the Mughals respectively. Unfold the different moods of Delhi on this enthralling 8-hour private tour.
In the morning, a private vehicle will pick you up from your hotel. Your first destination today is Old Delhi – founded by one of the greatest Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Unravel the mystery of the City of Djinns exploring this part of the city partly by foot and partly by bicycle rickshaws with a guide. See some of the bustling and narrow lanes of Kinari Bazaar, passing the glittery shops selling wedding ceremony items.
Embark on the newest and most popular mode of transport in the capital city of Delhi. Fast, reliable and comfortable – Delhi Metro is the contemporary image of India. With young and powerful management and air-conditioned coaches, the Delhi Metro plies throughout the city and the nearby areas. It is the latest lifeline for the local people and a great attraction with the visitors in Delhi. Enjoy a metro ride and reach a renowned heritage hotel for lunch.
Afterwards, hop on to a tuk-tuk and enjoy an orientation ride of Lutyen’s Delhi. Drive along wide avenues to catch a glimpse of the India Gate, the Houses of Parliament, and the Presidential Palace, all grandiose masterpieces of the British Raj. The charm of New Delhi lies in the variety and vibrancy in its pace of life. Amidst the tall and modern skyscrapers, the remnants of a bygone time in the form of its many monuments stand as silent reminders to the region's ancient legacy.
Lastly, enjoy a ride in the iconic ‘black and yellow’ taxis to Humayun’s Tomb. Built by Emperor Humayun's wife in 1556 after his death, this elegantly proportioned tomb is a wonderful example of early Mughal architecture. It is considered to be the predecessor of the Taj Mahal.
At the end of your tour, you will be dropped back off to your hotel.
