We had a wonderful afternoon tour of Old Delhi with our amazing guide Ash. He not only showed us many things we just would not have found alone but also gave us an insight into the street food and its history. We tasted many wonderful foods (my personal favourites were the rose water and cardomon lassi and the Kulfi. ) We had the oppostunity to take some great photos of the food and the people. Thanks Ash!

This was a great introduction to Delhi. I was picked up at my hotel early and met up with Jaidev in Old Delhi. We walked the streets and he pointed out some great photo opportunities. We experimented with panning and using the contours of the walls for interesting perspectives. I even got some shots of monkeys and a mongoose. Half way through, we started to sample food at several locations trying everything from samosas to cookies. I ate enough to skip dinner. They usually visit the spice market but construction made it hard to get to, so we skipped it (and my regular tour visited it the next day). I highly recommend the tour if you have a free day in Delhi.

I want to start by saying Ash was great all the way through. A car picked me up at the hotel and from there we met up with Ash. He took me through all the nooks and corners of the city to experience the real life of Delhi. Ate some of the fantastic flavors of the old city. I really enjoyed eating off the beaten bath. We finished the evening with a terrific sunset on the rooftops of the city and then the Red Fort. This night will stay with me for a long time.

On my first day in Delhi I booked a Photo and Food Walking Tour in Old Delhi. It was an incredible experience with a very knowledgeable and patient guide, Jaidev. On the 4-5 hours private tour we stopped at many food places in the heart of Old Delhi. Far away from touristic places I tried many different traditional Indian dishes - all of them very good! An excellent (and safe) choice of food by the organiser! Also, we took many pictures in the small alleys of Old Delhi. Jaidev, the guide, was really patient with a not professional photographer like me. He explained in much detail how to take the best pictures and I think we did pretty well (although the light was not the best)! Thanks again for the amazing tour, Jaidev, and all your great suggestions for the rest of my Indian trip! I would highly recommend the tour to everybody visiting Delhi.

My husband and I did the food and photography tour in Old Delhi with Raj. This tour was a welcome change from the other tours provided by our driving company during our time in the Golden Triangle. You pay the price for the tour upfront and there are no hidden costs along the way, and you know that the agenda is to give you a good experience and not extra commissions for the guide. Raj knew the streets of Old Delhi well, and seemed to know most of the shopkeepers along the way too. This gave us opportunities to explore and understand many aspects of the neighborhood we wouldn't otherwise get access to. It also gave us a lot of photo opportunities that we wouldn't otherwise feel comfortable getting or be able to communicate enough to get. The food was yummy and reliable. Neither my husband or I had any stomach issues. The food quantity isn't too much either - we felt like we got a taste of everything without stuffing ourselves (though Raj did offer us seconds everywhere we went - so you could eat more). Raj knows a ton about Indian food, and welcomed questions. There was more photography instruction than I expected during the tour. I am a beginning photographer and Raj was eager to share his tips and give me feedback about composition, camera functions, etc. I would recommend this!
