I can't say enough about the tour and my host and guide . We did the Red fort , Spice market and other sites but each was presented in detail with great background . I enjoyed the day fully John Sanders
Old Delhi is the former walled capital of the Mughal Empire, and New Delhi is the leafy, British-built modern center of the city. Enjoy both traditional and new sides of the Indian capital on this unique combo tour, which includes stops at blockbuster historical sites, such as Humayun’s Tomb and the Jama Masjid.
After pickup from the airport or your hotel in an air-conditioned private car, head straight to the 16th-century Humayun’s Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Mughal monument that inspired the Taj Mahal. Then, drive south to another iconic Mughal site: the Qutub Minar, the world’s tallest brick minaret and a remnant of Delhi's ancient dynasties.
Jump forward a thousand years with a visit to the Lotus Temple, a unique, petal-shaped white marble structure—last of seven Bahai temples in the world. After a lunch break, head to the 17th-century, Mughal-built Jama Masjid, the largest and most spectacular mosque in India and one of the standout sights in Old Delhi.
From there, swing by the India Gate, Delhi’s answer to the Arc de Triomphe and a symbol of modern India. Lastly, stop by the unforgettable Red Fort, a former royal residence built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, before drop-off to your hotel.
