Around 9 am, you will proceed on a guided tour of New Delhi, visiting such sights as Humayun’s Tomb, the Qutub Minar and The Iron Pillar which has survived the vagaries of weather for over 1500 years. Continue with a drive through Embassy area, the government buildings and Connaught Place, the heart and main shopping district of the capital. We also visit India Gate.

Later, we cross the city and into the walled gates of the Old City with visits to the Jamma Mosque and drive through the fabled area of Chandni Chowk (aptly translates to Moonlight Square) where the throngs of shoppers and vendors meet in the oldest area of Delhi. Visit the Raj Ghat and nearby ghats where the founder of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi and thereafter Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were cremated.

The finale of this tour will be a ride on cycle rickshaws. These are 3-wheel cycles with a sofa seat at the back. The Rickshawalla (Rickshaw driver) sits on a small cushion in the front and two passengers on the sofa seat behind. This is a remarkable way to explore and picture the hustle and bustle as well as the color of the narrow winding streets bursting with people and pavement shops selling wares of all description – including a laughing set of dentures. The ride will be accompanied by peals of laughter both from the passengers as well as the onlookers.

You will then be returned to your hotel in Delhi.
