Know More about this tour

Traveling in a small group through Delhi, this is the ideal opportunity to learn more about the life and time of Indian legend Mahatma Gandhi. Your journey begins with a visit to Gandhi smriti in New Delhi where Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life and where he was assassinated on January 30, 1948. View the preserved room where Gandhi lived and see the grounds where he was shot during his nightly public walk. The museum here houses various articles associated with Gandhi's life and death.

Your next stop is the 'Gandhi Memorial Museum', commonly known as 'National gandhi museum'. The origin of this museum dates back to the period soon after the assassination showcases personal relics, manuscripts, books, journals and documents as well as photographic and audio-visual material.

Continue to Raj Ghat. Located on the west bank of the Yamuna river and set in the midst of deep green lawns a simple square platform marks the spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated. Raj Gat is a memorial to Gandhi inscribed with the words "Hey Ram", the last words uttered by Gandhi before collapsing after being shot.

Your local guide will lead you through the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi, learning more about his message of truth, non violence and peace. Traveling in a small group, maximum 12 people, allows for an intimate and informative experience.

At the end of the trip you are free for personal exploration or alternatively your local guide can assist with arranging a taxi back to your hotel.

    I had a great experience on the Gandhi's Delhi Small Group Adventure Tour with Abhi, and I had a great afternoon exploring more of Delhi. Abhi and our driver for the afternoon Sonny, who was very friendly and professional, took me to Raj Ghat, where Gandhi's body was cremated, and I was able to walk around a bit at the memorial. We went to the Gandhi Museum, which had a great collection of some of Gandhi's personal effects. In particular, the dhoti and shawl Gandhi wore when he was assassinated were on display, which was tremendously moving. Abhi then talked with me about Gandhi's final days and death at the Gandhi Smriti, or the Birla House. We went up to the multimedia center, which had some neat little displays, but the highlight was definitely walking behind the building to the garden where Gandhi would meditate and talk with people. The tour was great, and Abhi was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and patient throughout the tour. He is a fantastic guide, and I was fortunate to have two half-day tours with him that day. I'm grateful to have been able to explore parts of Delhi on these great tours.

    This tour gives a good overview of the life and times of a controversial 20th century figure. We visited the Raj Ghat where Gandhi's body was cremated, the Gandhi Smriti where he was assassinated, and the Gandhi National Museum which has an extensive collection of artifacts and photos from his earliest years to his death. Our tour guide - Shrishti - was very pleasant, had a good fund of knowledge, and spoke readily understandable English. One negative - the meeting point is a local hotel rather than a pick up at your hotel, necessitating a taxi ride in chaotic Delhi traffic. The driver was kind enough to drop us off at our hotel on the way back, sparing us the expense and hassle of another taxi trip.

    This tour packs a lot of Gandhi into 4 hours, and will not appeal to everyone. However, If you are interested in the subject, as we were, this tour is a very worthwhile experience

    This was the highlight of our trip to India. We did a few tours during our brief five day stay in New Delhi. Visiting Gandhi's memorial sites was a very meaningful moment. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and he speaks English which was helpful. He was patient and shows us everything we looked for in the visit. This is a tour we would like to do again when in New Delhi.

    An excellent experience. The tour guide Audesh C. Mishra was a great guy who went out of his way to make our trip special and memorable, and even longer than the schedule as we were taking our time to see and indulge in the experience. He was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended on every level.
