Your responsible travel companion
Travelling is not just sightseeing but also experiencing different things in whichever place we visit. Our experience is a deep culture familiarisation and an activity which gives an insight to the local life. Old Delhi is a place rich in culture, history, architecture and many other things. Built as a walled city by Shah Jahan as his capital, every building or block of the city has something interesting to tell. We walk through the inconspicuous lanes and alleys to explore the city in a deep and comprehensive way. Houses in Old Delhi are ‘Havelis’ which have their unique kind of architecture and features. We will witness the pride of all those majestic havelis in which families have been living for generations.
The most interesting thing about Old Delhi is that it is India’s largest wholesale market and there are associated markets for everything in dedicated places. People have been living in Old Delhi for generations and been managing their family businesses. Even educated people abroad return to their place because they love living in Old Delhi. We will interact with them, listen amazing stories and tales associated with their lives, experiences and culture of Old Delhi.
The bustling streets are always crowded due to the presence of numerous rickshaws, carriages and bullock-carts. However, it is so interesting to see those people living their busy lives and doing hard work without being bothered about luxury. All of them are pretty friendly and open to share their knowledge of their home city and we can see the passion in their eyes. When we ride rickshaws and experience the hustle, we will get to know how life in Old Delhi flourished.
Food is a part of local culture of any place and it is always connected to the location and eating habits. Our experience begins with a breakfast with traditional dishes. We will also try making some local dishes to add interest to our tour. We will stop over for some delicious snacks which are exclusive and unique to Old Delhi and learn more about cooking practices and eating habits of people in the city.
Old Delhi is a place where people from all walks of life live in harmony and it must be witnessed by every traveller. We will visit places of worship to learn more about spirituality, local beliefs and worship practices as well. We will get blessed from temples or Gurudwaras and get nourished spiritually too. In Chandni Chowk, people from Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, and Jain communities live in harmony and mutual respect and thus adding to the beauty of the local culture.
In Old Delhi, let’s not forget the local sports, The Pigeon Flying Game and Kite Flying Game. Our experience is enriched with interesting stories associated with these games and their origins.
Asia’s largest spice market is situated in Old Delhi and it is on every traveller’s bucket list when they are in Delhi. Interesting stories, location and sheer size make it a fascinating place to visit. Not to mention that we can witness the life of the people working there. They live and work there and they are happy to live their lives without luxury. We will enjoy the panoramic views of Chandni Chowk which was once the pride of the Mughal Empire.
Sufism was coined by Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, the great venerated poet and Sufi Saint in 12 century AD. In contrast with traditional beliefs, Sufism focuses on humanity rather than religion. Sufis pray for one another and help each other survive.
The tomb of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya awaits you with an ever memorable experience, stories and much more.
The experience is brought to you by us from the descendants of the great poet himself. Get to do the worship practice called 'Ziyarat' which commemorates the love and devotion to the saint and his followers.
The offerings at the tomb and donations to charity at the Trust is all inclusive of the charges.
You will also get to learn more about Islamic culture, lifestyle and Sufism as well.
Listen to lovely 'Qawwali' music sung by Sufi musicians in devotion to Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya

Spirituality is something that has its roots deep down in India’s culture and India is known for its spiritual characteristics. Over centuries, India has always fascinated travellers with the spiritual knowledge she provides.
Of course, a trip to India must always be accompanied by spiritual exploration. The marvellous architecture of the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India, is not famous for its structure alone; the area itself is influenced by its presence. People of different faiths live in harmony.
