I have taken several food walking tours in various cities, it is one of the things I like to do at the beginning of a trip to get oriented to a city and get insight into local cuisine. This was one of the best food tours I have ever done. It is clear that they are conscious of the concerns of travelers to India and provide hand sanitizer, hand wipes, a bottle of water, and a bag in which to carry them. The tour takes you through various places you would never find on your own or be confident to try on your own. It has you explore Old Delhi by foot and tuk tuk which is an adventure of its own. All of the food was interesting and I found virtually all of it delicious. The insight into flavors and food was really well done. I would highly recommend anyone with time in Delhi to take this tour. It would be good for families, individuals, couples, friends basically anyone who wanted to explore the city and the food.

Wow! This exceeded our expectations of a Delhi foodie tour. Loved that we opted for private tour, as our guide could cater the day our likes. Totally worth the small extra charge. Most importantly we experienced true Indian food and learned a bit about the history of Indian cuisine. Plus really experienced Old Delhi. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Delhi!
This is a great chance to sample the very rich regional cuisine. Additionally, we enjoyed the glimpses to daily life in sections od Delhi that are not easily accessible to tourists. We had a great time and the guide and experience were superb. We highly recommend the tour to those interested in cuisine and culture.
