Delhi Heritage Walk - Private TourExplore the great heritage of the Old Delhi area including the life, activities and famous monuments of the area
The Heritage Walk
This special interest tour of Delhi (the heritage walk) starts with the magnificent Red Fort.
Departure: 10am; Duration: 5-6 Hrs; Tour Price: INR 2690/- (per person)
Also known as Lal Quilla, the Red fort was built by the great Mughal emperor Shahjahan, after the capital was shifted from Agra to Delhi in 1637 AD. The construction of the fort started in 1638 and it took about 10 years to finish the work. Spread over 2.5 sq km, the fort was constructed with red sandstone brought from the Aravali hills.
Besides the Lahore and Delhi gate, other important structures inside the fort are Diwan-i-am (the Hall of Public Audiences), Diwan-i-khas (the Hall of Private Audiences), Nahr-i-Behisht, Mumtaz Mahal, Rang Mahal, Moti Masjid, Hayat Bakhsh Bagh, the Hammams, the Muthamman Burj and Naqqar Khana.
After the Red fort, we walk towards Chandni Chowk to explore its famous hustle & bustle & Culture
Chandni Chowk is one of the oldest and busiest markets in Old Delhi. Built in 17th century by the great Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, it is one of India's largest wholesale markets. Bustling with trade activities and people, Chandni Chowk is ushering towards an age where modernity and tradition walk hand in hand. Chandni Chowk also symbolises tolerance and co-existence as people of so many faiths have been living here together in peace & harmony for centuries.
As you walk past Sri Digambar Jain Mandir, the Baptist Church, Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib, Fatehpuri Masjid and other such historic structures, our guide will enlighten you with numerous interesting facts and information about them.
The specialty of Chandni Chowk is the variety of its markets - from authentic Indian delicacies and sweets, to sarees with chikan and zari work. Another important feature of Chandni Chowk is its narrow lanes with shops selling books, clothing, leather goods, electronic and consumer goods and other items. Chawri Bazaar and Kinari Bazaar are one of these famous markets which our guide will take you through.
It is Rickshaw Time Now!
Exploring the narrow and crowded lanes of Chandni Chowk and the surrounding areas on a Rickshaw is something a traveler should never miss. Piercing through the busy streets, the Rickshaw will take you to Dariba kalan and kinari Bazaar areas.
It was a popular market for precious stones and gold and silver jewelry, during the Mughal rule. At present, most of the shops in Dariba Kalan trade in silver, gold, kundan, polki and diamond jewellery. As we walk past these, you come across many shops that deal in authentic itar - a special variety of perfume. Many of these stores date back to the early 19th century.
The Road to Jama Masjid
After having a close look at various activities in Chandni Chowk and the surrounding areas, we take the narrow lanes to Jama Masjid, passing through several fantastic old buildings, shops & houses constructed in Indo-Islamic style.
The Biggest and one of the most beautiful mosques in India, the Jama Masjid was constructed by Shah Jahan. Around 25000 people can offer prayers at a time at Jama Masjid. In the courtyard of the mosque, there is a beautiful pond made of white marble to conduct wazu - a muslim ceremony to cleanse oneself before you entering the main sanctorum of the mosque. The mosque has 2 minarets and they are made up of white marble & red sandstone. One can climb these minarets and have a panoramic view of the old city and also see the 3 bulbous domes which are a blend of Persian & Rajput architecture.
With this we complete the last leg of the "Heritage Walk" of one of India’s oldest markets and heritage sites.

First of all I want to apologized for not writing before. I just want to thank you for the wonderful experience I had in my first trip to India (solo).
I really enjoyed my itinerary and all places you chose for me.
My driver Umish was wonderful, very knowledgeable. He had internet access all the way !!!! which allow me to work on the long rides from city to city and there was not much to see
I have been trying to write a review in Tripadvisor, but I'm unable to do it. Not a computer savy as you can see.
Anyways, thank you very much for all your help.
