Night Walk of Chandni Chowk, Old Delhi

This night walk around Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi shows you the capital when it is most alive — in the evening. Chandni Chowk literally means the 'Moonlit Square' and it is believed that the name came from Mughal times when the water in the square reflected the moonlight. After dark the air is cooler and people get on with their daily activities, so do expect crowds and some attention from the locals as you venture into the narrow lanes of Old Delhi. Your guide will explain the history of the area and highlight the remaining façades and buildings that have survived this rapidly changing area.

The other main focus of the tour is food! You can expect to sample the sweets at Kanwarji, the oldest sweet shop in Old Delhi, freshly baked biscuits at Ballimaran and street chai (tea) as you explore the area. Before ending at an authentic restaurant for an evening meal. This walk is around three to four hours long but this includes your evening meal. All snacks, mineral water and dinner are included. You will have to pay for drinks during the meal.

Please note that this tour is designed to give you an insight into everyday life in Old Delhi at night. There is no fixed itinerary and you should be prepared to cope with crowds of people, narrow lanes and all the hustle and bustle of Delhi.
