In the early morning, our experienced local guide will meet you at your hotel lobby, and give a brief introduction to this Delhi day trip. After that, we will set out in our private vehicle to explore Old area of Delhi. We will first visit Raj Ghat, where the father of the nation - Mahatma Gandhi was cremated. Then, we will make a short stop at the majestic Red Fort for some photos. Completely carved out of red sandstone, the Red Fort once served as the royal palace for royal families of the Mughal Empire. After that, we will move onwards to the nearby Jama Masjid Mosque, the largest of its kind in the country. The mosque was built since 1644 and completed 1658 during the reign of King Shah Jahan, who also constructed the masterpiece Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. After finishing the guided sightseeing tour, we will arrange a rickshaw ride for you to travel through the local bazaar - Chandni Chowk, where we can feel the real daily life of local people or you may pick some fancy handicrafts and souvenirs.
Around noon, we will leave some time for you to have lunch on you own. And our guide will give you suggestions on good restaurants and authentic local cuisines.
In the afternoon, we will start our tour to the new district of Delhi with a visit to the Qutub Minar, listed as a World Heritage Site. With a height of 73 meters (240 feet), the five-storey Qutub Minar is tapering from the bottom to top in red appearance. The interior of the tower is decorated with beautiful murals and calligraphic works depicting verses from the Quran, and it is a testimony to the growth and heyday of Islam in India.
Later, we will move onward to Humayun's Tomb, which was built in 1556 with a perfect blend of Islamic and Hindu architectural styles. In 1993, it was also recorded as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. For first glance, we will see the winding red wall encircle the whole mausoleum with verdant plants and exquisitely designed fountain. Afterwards, we will show respect to the India Gate, which was built to memorize the unknown soldiers sacrificed during the war. It also play an important role in distinguishing old and New Delhi. Then, we will round off the tour at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the largest Sikh temple in the city. The idyllic temple is widely open to anyone regardless of religion and race, and we can learn more about the history and culture of Sikhism. If lucky, we may encounter their alms giving ceremony.
At the end of the day, we will transfer you to your hotel, where our service ends. We are always right here to tailor made your ideal itinerary, and please feel free to contact us if you want to make your stay in India longer. We wish you have a wonderful Delhi day tour with us!
