Old Delhi is definitely interesting. So different than New Delhi (it is equally hectic), much more interesting and a lot to see. I recommend to walk around the small streets. People, rickshaws, cows, shops, and tea vendors... Worth visiting.

Old Delhi is everything squalid, crowded, and overwhelming about the Indian capitol. It's narrow lanes choked with screaming rickshaws, grand mosques, and hidden bazaars, and is one of the most fascinating places in the city. Get dropped off at the Ajmer gate and simply get lost for a couple hours -- it's an education in everything Delhi.

If you want a tour of the real Delhi this is the tour for you. All the sights, sounds and smells of Delhi are available to you but probably rarely found on other trips. Delving deep into the real life of Delhi this is an incredibly interesting walk with a few quirks thrown in. It really is worth your while going on this however one tip: don't eat before you go out! I wish I had more room to sample the large variety of food that was supplied.

A bustling place that gives you a real taste of India. Safe to walk most streets and public areas as tourists, even as 2 tall Canadian women alone. You will get stared all from all sides, but get used to it this is the norm in India, it's impossible to blend in. Be aware of cultural rules and try to keep a modest dress code.

Old Delhi is not for the faint of heart. As you walk the narrow alleyways packed to bursting with shoppers, vendors, beggars and general oglers, every sense is accosted. Overhead, heaps of power cords sink low enough to touch, buzzing with stolen electricity. Here in Old Delhi you will get a taste for the diversity, history and massive population of India; chaos reigns supreme. And no where else in the city will you find better spices, prettier jewelry or a better selection of fabrics. Find that still pool of peace within, stroll the streets of Old Delhi, and go for a stiff drink afterwards. You won't regret it.

If you can only do one thing in Delhi ... LET THIS BE IT. Try Old Delhi Bazaar Walk & Haveli Visit This is a delicious way to experience Old Delhi, the Original Delhi Food and Culture. You will get a completely different look of India through the eyes and experiences of a local family. This is off the beaten / eaten tourist path which is refreshing and authentic.You will be personally leaded around the neighborhood's winding streets, sharing the neighborhood's rich history and delicious foods. After the walk, you will visit and enjoy complimentary meal at one of the last standing beautiful haveli ( Private Mansion) of Delhi. The Masterji Kee Haveli has a terrace from where, there are views of Old Delhi in all its higgledy-piggledy chaos with a view of spectacular Jama Masjid

Everyone should go here at least once. This was once the city of Shahjahanabad, founded by emporer Shah Jahan who also built the Taj Mahal. Popular attractions here include the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk market, and the Digambar Jain Lal Mandir and Bird Hospital

An Amazing area of Delhi where most of the culture lives. Walk throughout he streets of Chandni Chowk or visit Jama Masjid. This area of Delhi just has a lot to offer with a lot of life around.
