Why take this tour?

New Delhi, the capital of a secular and the world’s largest democratic country, is not just the city planned by Sir Edward Lutyens, an architect commissioned by the British to design India’s new capital in 1911, but a blend of the same along with its glorious past, depicted through ruins of forts, tombs of earlier rulers, dilapidated archways and much more. It is an experience of the old within the new. On picking you up from your hotel, our tour begins with a drive exploring Lutyen’s Delhi. Looking at the colonial architecture surrounded by the newly built commercial high rise buildings, we hit upon a hidden treasure in the heart of New Delhi.
