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.

06 Nov 2014 Tour leader, Sabya was extremely knowledgeable and candid on what to do and where to go so my time was well spent on seeing and doing things that I didn't initially think of seeing. He was flexible and sensitive on how the day was going and making adjustments based on my feedback and his expertise. It was a great way to spend my 24 hours in New Delhi.
30 Oct 2014 Sunny did an AWESOME job! He worked around the schedule to get me a private tour earlier than the group tour and it was definitely an amazing experience because he was so personable, knowledgable, and helpful. I could not stop raving to my friends about the great service. Too much food! I felt bad when I could not finish a dish, but I was literally going to get sick by the end because it was simply too much food. Would be better with smaller portion sizes or less stops.
05 Oct 2014 Had trouble finding the hop on hop off bus office to start the tour, but my guide was excellent, Ravi knew his stuff & I couldn't eat all the food, & he delivered me back to my hotel. Great adventure
05 Oct 2014 The guide was great & very knowledgeable. He had a trainee with him but that didn't hinder the tour, it was great to get a small insight into Gandhi's life, really enjoyed the whole experience.
24 Sep 2014 Koni was a fantastic guide and gave me a wonderful introduction to her city. She explained everything in detail so I knew what all the crazy chaos of Delhi meant. This was a wonderful start to my trip.
24 Sep 2014 Sunny was a wonderful guide. He was extremely knowledgable about Gandhi and filled in any history gaps. He was patient as I wandered about absorbing all the details. He also introduced me to Rani of Jhansi - an amazing Indian historical figure that I now plan to read more about. I had a wonderful afternoon and this trip really exceeded any expectations I had of it.
02 Apr 2014 Digvijay was my guide in Delhi and I could not have anticipated a better tour! Being a single female traveler in India, I had some concerns about traveling solo, but this tour was the perfect activity for me. I felt very safe and I felt like we blended into the flurry of the Delhi streets, rather than sticking out as I have felt in the past on guided tours. I would fully recommend this tour to any type of traveler. It is obvious that Digvijay cares about his clients. He made sure that I got to where I needed to be after the tour and I learned so much about the city.
23 Mar 2014 The Delhi food walk was fantastic. It was a great activity for our first day in Delhi. Tushar was a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide, and the food was fantastic! The hop on/hop off bus tour was pretty good - an easy way to see the big sights in an economical way.
22 Mar 2014 Very much enjoyed getting to experience the University neighbourhood in Delhi and the fantastic street food. Would have missed out on many of the sampled foods had it not been for this tour. Guide was very personable. He also set me up for taking cycle rickshaws while in Delhi. Excellent tour.
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.
