Know More about this tour

You will be picked up from your hotel in Delhi or Gurgaon city by private, air-conditioned vehicle then driven to three or four of Delhi’s eclectic markets of your choosing. Explore each market at your leisure before you are returned to your hotel at the conclusion of your 6-hour shopping spree. Please note that some markets and individual vendors are closed on Sundays and Mondays.

You may choose from the following markets:

Dilli Haat, INA: A government-managed market of traditional arts, crafts, textiles, and cuisines from different parts of India. Popular buys include handicrafts and handlooms (clothing items). On occasion, the amphitheater hosts various cultural performances.

Chandni Chowk
: This market exemplifies the quintessential feeling of Old Delhi — noisy, busy, and overflowing with goods. People, bicycles, cycle rickshaws and animals jostle for space in the narrow lanes near obscure stores selling anything from wedding wear to jewelry, hardware, and electronics. North Indian snacks are plentiful. (Some wholesale sub-markets closed on Sundays)

Hauz Khas Village
: A chic market located in what used to be a village, it is dotted with contemporary restaurants, designer art stores, and clothing outlets. Various restaurants and bars play host to musical performances, with the Hauz Khas Tomb, the lake, and the deer park located nearby.

Khan Market
: One of Delhi’s oldest markets, this complex has a mix of regular stores and up-market restaurants. Stores range from brand names to one-store boutiques and tailors, and shops sell anything from books to cosmetics. Abundant cafes feature all cuisines. (Some shops closed on Sundays)

Paharganj
: This congested hub of tourist activity is due to a multitude of budget-accommodating options and eateries. Shops selling clothing, shoes, jewelry, books, music, handicrafts, and trinkets are abundant. You can often get Indian dress stitched and tailored all in one day. (Some shops closed on Sundays)

Sarojini Nagar
: Among the more crowded markets, especially on weekends, this market is known for shops selling clothes, ranging from cheap t-shirts to brand stores. The most popular stores are those that sell stylish factory rejects with minor-defects at bargain prices. Bargaining is the norm here. (Closed on Mondays)

Saket/Gurgaon malls

  • Our guide, Raj, was delightful and very informative. We had quite an adventure in several areas of the city, and knew the whole time that we were in very good hands. He tailored our trip to our requests and it was a pleasure to spend this time with him exploring parts of Delhi.

  • Great to have a guide to go through markets with and explain things about the markets. They will ask what you want to buy and bring you to those markets/specific places or just wander through to look at everything.

  • Deals, deals, and more deals! My husband and I did quite a bit of shopping in the area of India and I must say that our tour guide was extremely helpful in assisting us with the best deals/identifying quality for the products that we bought. The nice thing about this tour is that our tour guide was extremely flexible in regards to how long we wanted to stay at each market, when we wanted to eat, and order of the schedule. I do not think we could have navigated the markets without her and I know we made the right decision by purchasing this tour. In fact, if we visit India a second time we were so pleased with the service we would purchase this same tour again!

  • Delphi airport service, Sanjay Gupta and our shopping guide Vandy were exceptional!! An amazing day in Delhi!
