'The past is everywhere & nowhere' sums the capital city, Delhi, beautifully.
To know Delhi you have to understand its memory. The spirit of the place has always been staccato and you have to find that rhythm, that thread that moves the city and through our walks and tours we try and do just that!

We taste that dinner on our tours in Delhi as we walk down memory lane. We taste what's freshly cooked in the city and we contest with the contrasts.
And take in the visual assault of the city with its tombs, crumbling havelis, minarets, sufi shrine, baghs, imperial imprints, forts, stories, bazaars, cuisine, language, saleeqa and more..
