What You'll Do

Get lost in a twisting maze of smells, colours and shaded walkways, as a local guide steers you through this labyrinth of passageways to the best eating spots, to beautiful, hidden nooks and crannies, and brings the very walls to life with stories that have shaped the Delhi way of life.

Arriving at Chandhi Chowk, you will spend 2.5 hours being led through one of Delhi’s most famous markets, whilst seeing a side to it your average tourist would miss completely.

Khari Baloi, the Spice Market of Old Delhi, is a 17th century market with an illustrious past, an exciting present, and the ability to completely overwhelm the senses in a whirlwind of fragrant smells, vibrant colours and the hectic sights and sounds of people going about their everyday business.

On a tailor-made tour of the largest spice market in Asia, our local guide and expert on this maddeningly beautiful part of Delhi will provide you with an insight that is lost on most that wander in for a new Instagram picture.

Understand the origins of Indian spices, their uses and the blends required for authentic, local dishes, then experience some real, gritty bargaining in the midst of the madness for yourself.

Make discoveries only known to the locals, secret passageways, hidden gems and varieties of dried fruits and herbs tucked in amongst the piles of spices and winding alleyways. This is your one-way ticket to experiencing a piece of real Delhi life.

At the end of the 2.5 hours, you will be dropped off back at your start point.
