  • Trip introduction

    The Shah Jahan tour takes you on a journey into the hidden corners of Old Delhi, for a glimpse into the life and times of the great Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan and his sprawling capital, Shahjahanabad. You'll cycle through a web of old alleys, filled with the fragrance of exotic spices and tea. From here, you'll proceed to iconic colonial and historical landmarks, such as the Spice Market, Civil Lines, the Red Fort, and Jama Masjid.

    You'll end with a stunning view of Asia's largest spice market and the flavour of the world-famous Karim's Restaurant!

    Your tour package includes 2 English/Hindi speaking guides for a group. The main guide cycles in the first position, the client in-between and one co-guide in the last position to ensure nobody is left behind.

    For each tour, the maximum size is usually 9 participants in one group, to ensure you receive full attention. If your group is of a bigger size, it may be split into 2, 3 or more sub groups, and still conducted on the same day.
