We really enjoyed this tour! We got to try so many different foods and there was so much to eat that we couldn’t finish it all because we were too full. Aditya Shahi was a wonderful guide, friendly and knowledgeable. Our favorite had to be the Kulfi- ice cream filled in the fruit skin.

Excellent Tour, Great Value
Feb. 2020
Such a rewarding experience! Our guide Ash (Ashwani), was very informative and passionate about the tour. His English was excellent as was his awareness of his surroundings. I could never imagine visiting the streets of Old Delhi without a good guide. Our shuttle driver "Bill," was also very professional and arrived on time. Our online contact, Shikah, answered our preliminary questions in a very timely fashion. However, what stands out the most, is the timing of the tour. A lot of thought and time-tested experience has gone into this tour. It is very well designed and operates with precision. Pay the extra to have a private tour and you will be glad you did. Well done!

A very real experience of Old Delhi
Jan. 2020
We were met as agreed by Aditya and walked the streets with 3 other people. It was superb to not just taste the different foods but to have them explained - why prepared in this way, how they complimented each other, what we should be able to taste and why?
Waled the area, went in a couple of Tuk-Tuks, got a real feel for Old Delhi.

Jan. 2020
This food tour was the most insane and delicious tour I have ever done! We started at 11 AM and literally ate our way through old and new Delhi for 8 hours! I kept thinking I couldn't eat another thing, but it was so good I had to! Our tour guide Ash was extremely knowledgeable and well read on Indian History and peppered our meals with great facts as well as answered all our questions. I would do this tour again and again and definitely recommend it to others!

Amazing tour with amazing guide -Aditya
My friend and I book this tour for our first day in Delhi. What a way to start! We dove right in to the chaos and beauty of India.

We were fortunate to have Aditya as our guide. We booked a group tour, however it was only the two of us. Aditya was waiting as our car arrived at the entrance to the Jama Mosque. He welcomed us with backpacks filled with hand sanitizer, water and face wipes. After introductions and an overview of the day, we started our tour on foot in Old Delhi.

Our first stop was a popular stall where he introduced us to a number of dishes and the best part was he showed us how our tastebuds responded to eating foods in different combinations and sequences. It was fascinating!

Almost every stop on the tour was chosen because it has a rich history. One of our favorites was the “mustached cookie seller”. He had a cart from which he sold light-as-air cookies. He has been selling in the same spot for decades. He had a gorgeous mustache and an infectious smile.

One word of caution: DO NOT EAT BEFORE THE TOUR!! They tell you this, and they really mean it. Unfortunately I had breakfast before the tour because I had not eaten in almost a day due to traveling. I was full by the fourth stop. Also, you can just take a taste of things. Don’t feel compelled to finish everything you are served.

We included the add-on for the driver to pick us up at our hotel, which was in Gurgaon. I definitely recommend including this option if your not staying near the meeting point, as it made everything so convenient and easy.

We highly recommend this tour!

Amazing Taste!
Jul. 2019 • Family
We had such a great experience to taste Indian food with a great explanation on how to taste what we tried. Our tour guide Shika understood how to convince us to try a different kind of food and showed us the way how to eat and taste food. We tried food with different spices and flavors and we were amazed that one food can change the taste several times. Shika was amazing and very helpful, I can highly recommend her. When I come again I will try out a cooking tour with her.

Amazing and Delicious
This tour offered by PETE, which is a NGO that schools slum children, was such an amazing experience. Besides having the opportunity to taste super delicious Indian food, you totally immerse yourself in Chandni Chowk, which is completely booming with life!!
Remarkable experience, would definitely recommend it!

As other reviewers have advised, it is important to not ear everything that is given to - there is a lot.

There were just two of us with Ash, so he tailored the tour to match our interests, including a number of photo opportunities unrelated to food. He was very personable and knowledgeable about both the food we were served and the businesses serving it, most of which had been doing so for decades.

Great, Extensive food tour
Do this as early as you can in your travels. The food tour is great in that you get exposed to lots of Indian foods. In total we ate about 12 items and we were so full by 8 but I'm glad it was that then them not giving us enough. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about food and friendly and it didn't feel rushed at all. Some of the places we ate were certainly not ones I'd be adventurous to try alone. My only feedback is how to give is perhaps some more variety in the styles of food we ate - it was very bread and curry heavy, but maybe that's Indian food? Overall very well worth it.
