In addition to food, the guests also get the chance to see a number of hidden corners of the city which normal tourists don't really know about.

    Going on a food tour is the best way to learn about a culture. This was an amazing experience and there was so many places and different foods that the experience is something not to miss. From the start, there was constant communication and everything was on time. The very best!

    This was an incredible experience. Aditya was a chef and introduced us to an outstanding tasting of many authentic Indian dishes. From food stalls to sidewalk restaurants, we were tasting all that Delhi had to offer. Chef Aditya included interesting details about the history of Delhi. We enjoyed Tuk Tuk rides as well as taxi excursions throughout old Delhi and then New Delhi. Do not miss this food tour.

    This was the highlight of our visit to Delhi! They were kind enough to let us reschedule as we both arrived feeling a little under the weather. Āditya was a great guide ! Very knowledgeable and adapted the tour for our preferences and what we wanted to see. The food was unique and delicious, definitely not anything we would have found on our own. If you're wondering, this tour is absolutely worth it!

    Excellent tour and guide! Highly recommend! The food was awesome, had stories behind it and the vendors were outstanding. Good for even the weak stomached. This was the best way to see the market in Old Delhi for us. Can’t say enough good things about our guide Āditya. Clear, knowledgeable, friendly and paced the tour perfectly for us

    I can’t say enough wonderful things about this experience! Not only did I try amazing foods that I might have been weary to try on my own for fear of food poisoning, I also was given deep insight into the history and culture of Delhi. The tour was very well curated, and offered a variety of types of foods and experiences, including visiting the kitchens of a Sikh temple! Aditiya, a chef himself, Was an amazing guide! Not only did he provide information about all the foods I tried, he also happily answered my many questions about Hinduism, Ayurvedic medicine, and Indian culture at large. If you are in Delhi and enjoy food and culture, this tour is a MUST!

    We really enjoyed this tour! We got to try so many different foods and there was so much to eat that we couldn’t finish it all because we were too full. Aditya Shahi was a wonderful guide, friendly and knowledgeable. Our favorite had to be the Kulfi- ice cream filled in the fruit skin.

    Such a rewarding experience! Our guide Ash (Ashwani), was very informative and passionate about the tour. His English was excellent as was his awareness of his surroundings. I could never imagine visiting the streets of Old Delhi without a good guide. Our shuttle driver "Bill," was also very professional and arrived on time. Our online contact, Shikah, answered our preliminary questions in a very timely fashion. However, what stands out the most, is the timing of the tour. A lot of thought and time-tested experience has gone into this tour. It is very well designed and operates with precision. Pay the extra to have a private tour and you will be glad you did. Well done!

    We were met as agreed by Aditya and walked the streets with 3 other people. It was superb to not just taste the different foods but to have them explained - why prepared in this way, how they complimented each other, what we should be able to taste and why? Waled the area, went in a couple of Tuk-Tuks, got a real feel for Old Delhi.
