Delhi Urban Adventures
Day tours, with a local
Ready for a Delhi tour experience that will overload all your senses through the sights, smells and sounds of this bustling city?
Delhi Urban Adventures offer small group walking, temple, cultural and food day tours of Delhi that uncover what makes our city tick. Discover Delhi with an experienced local guide.
Old and New Delhi sightseeing provides you an opportunity to experience the rich culture of India’s Mughal past as you visit monuments like the Jama Masjid or Qutub Minar, trace its colonial roots with the splendor of the days of the Raj as you witness Lutyen’s architectural vision of New Delhi, to seeing the modern economic juggernaut that is known as India Inc as the millions of Delhites go about their daily lives.
Our Delhi tours explore the old bizarres of Chandi Chowk on foot rambling through the spice markets or finding that special trinket, sample the diversity of Mughal food or vegetarian thali and the array of sweets you can only decadently find in India and find your spiritual inner peace when you visit the many Hindu temples and Sikh Gurdwaras.
Come travel with us on a unique Delhi day tour and have a real local experience in Delhi. And whilst you are in this part of the world, check out some of the exciting Urban Adventures in Kathmandu, Bankok and Ho Chi Minh City.

12 Jan 2014 Our guide, in Delhi, AVI, was very knowledgable, personable and very accommodating. Our walk with him through Old Delhi was most definitely the highlight of our time in that city. Ask for him. You will not be disappointed.
13 Nov 2013 An excellent fun way to start my visit to India with an introduction to street food. However, if I hadn't been meeting friends, I would not have booked this tour because it involved navigating our way across Delhi via Metro within hours of arriving (I would not have done this on my own). Would have been better if pick-up from a hotel was an option.
10 Oct 2013 Tushar was knowledgeable and friendly - he was excellent at explaining all about the food we ate and was generous enough to share his own personal insight into life in Delhi. Exactly what I wanted and more!
15 May 2013 Everything was great
20 Apr 2013 Very good tour, excellent guide!! Would recommend to anyone!
04 Mar 2013 So wonderful to be accompanied to the flat of a local and then warmly welcomed inside to observe traditional Indian cooking first hand and of course to eat the delicious food. A really great experience - highly recommended!
15 Oct 2012 Our guide, Ashish Solanski, was very personable and knowledgable and we requested him to be our guide for our second Urban Adventure when we returned to Delhi. This was an excellent introduction for us to the culture of Delhi and served as a launching pad for the balance of our trip.
Our Delhi Urban Adventures team is made up of a passionate and experienced group of individuals from across the broad spectrum of Indian society. They can't wait to share their great love of the city they call home on local Delhi tours of the Spice markets in Chandni Chowk, the city’s monuments and temples, its rich heritage and culture, the road towards independence as you learn of Gandhi’s life, and even a home cooked meal with a local family. Let us show you the real Delhi on our unique Delhi tours.
