The Highlights of Delhi

The only way to explore Delhi is with our expert guide. Discovering the city can only truly be achieved in the company of someone who really knows how to navigate this vast metropolis.

Start by exploring the fascinating and living legacy of the Indo-Islamic culture in Old Delhi. Wander in the busy and narrow streets of the mile-long Chandni Chowk, popularly called “The Silver Street”, surrounded by shops and bazaars. Visit the largest mosque of Old Delhi which can accommodate 20,000 people at one time – Jama Masjid with its tapering minarets and wonderful marble domes. Drive past the magnificent Parliament Building, the Rashtrapati Bhawan (the official residence of the President of India in the 330 acres of land and designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens) and India Gate in New Delhi. Visit Humanyun’s Tomb, built in the 16th century and architecturally considered the forerunner of the Taj Mahal.
