I was first-time visitor to India when I took this adventurous tour of Old Delhi. Step back into time on streets and among buildings which have been in active use for centuries. My tour guide "Mona" is formally trained in Indian history, multi-lingual, and an area resident for many years. His numerous tours through the area have brought him to ever-increasing knowledge about the layers of history hidden behind the sights and sounds of this populated city. Our tour took us through the working merchant distrct of Old Delhi, where small store fronts hide the major business-to-business being conducted. Many shops sell to consumers, but a large portion of daily traffic are merchants dealing in volume trading. Wares include building supplies, fabrics, hardware and jewelry. The streets are old and narrow and require navigating among crowded portions and moving scooters and motor bikes: but stay with your guide and he helps you navigate this adventurous walking portion. Our historical look includes a visit to Jama Masjid, still an active mosque. Many Muslims come for worship, locals come to socialize, and visitors come to admire the architecture and culture. The large open area could hold 25,000 people. Also on the tour are notable buildings combining Indian and foreign styles. Mona points out the architectural features of different buildings which show the artistry expressed in decoration and construction. Today, the patterns used are a source of historical and native pride, creative history on current display. The final portion includes a rickshaw ride to the spice market. Being in the open vehicle gives an up-close look at Delhi traffic. Granted, Delhi pollution can be irritating -- but I had my particulate mask to ease the hit. The spice market is famous, and one may find quality ghee too. Again, much of the business is commercial, but your guide will show you where consumers may find quality and variety. For the several hours it was, this interactive adventure stimulates body and mind and senses in a place dominated by local merchants and residents. The buildings are historical, but the activity is real and turbulent and current. No tour book or video can capture the full experience of simply going and exploring Old Delhi with a knowledgeable guide.

The old Delhi is a special place with interesting history. Information provided by tour guide Mona is really professional. The center of city is over crowded with all kinds of people and transports. However, Mona has taken full care & attention to us, and we have been able to go through different small lanes & streets without problem. Thanks to Mona !

Mona/Madhavendra and I were connected through another friend. I am from India and know old Delhi well, but had two American friends visiting and wanted an expert who could tell us a lot more. Mona surpassed my expectations- it was such a pleasant, informative and fun-loving jaunt through our ancient history. We had yummy street food that was safe, saw amazing markets and then a grand mosque- Jama Masjid and Humayun's Tomb! I learned much more than I ever knew from books and he kept my friends safe and enthralled. Mona also has a great way of personalizing the tour for his audience. In short, our trip was simply outstanding.

Mona enthusiastically and interestingly made the most of our day giving us lots of facts and history. He gave us a good insight into the markets, different religious culture and laws. He negotiated on our behalf and made us feel safe and comfortable at all times. Mona has great English language skills so we didn’t miss a word and his friendly fun nature and help with the photos will prompt us to recommend him to anyone going to Delhi or Agra.
