This fun-filled discovery tour of Delhi is focused on exploring the unexplored and discovering the city’s hidden gems with a local expert guide by your side.
After meeting your guide, you’ll head by air-conditioned car towards the south part of Delhi. Our first stop is Mehrauli Archaeological Park, which dates to the 12th century. The sprawling archaeological area is spread over 200 acres in Mehrauli, Delhi, adjacent to Qutub Minar World Heritage site and the Qutub complex. It consists of over 100 historically significant monuments. Overlooked by most of the tourist hordes, this park preserves some of the most historic relics of Delhi.
After exploring this beautiful park, we’ll visit a hidden alley which offers a vibrant blend of cool cafes, art, and culture. The spot is an absolute pleasure to visit and a great spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. We’ll stop for a cup of coffee and a snack at a café with a sustainable approach and learn about the changing culture of Delhi.
We’ll then head into Jugaad, which is the nerve centre of the charitable organization, Karm Marg. The aim here is to empower vulnerable young adults with livelihood skills. Jugaad is also the vocational training and income generation part of Karm Marg. At Jugaad, young adult trainees, alumni of Karm Marg, and rural women from surrounding areas train and work together to create unique bags, wallets, stationery and more using discarded and waste materials.
While at the shop you can pick out a souvenir, which is included in the cost of the tour. This way we are supporting the initiative. Spend some time exploring and talking to representatives to learn more about the NGO and their work in the community.
Next, we’ll drive towards the most artistic district of India, the Lodhi Art District, which is India’s first open-air public art district. This initiative was begun by the St+art India Foundation, a non-profit organization working to make art accessible to a wider audience. The once non-descript area is now filled with over 50 murals created by both local and international artists. You’ll have time to walk around the narrow, art-filled lanes snapping photos to fill your Instagram feed.
The last (but certainly not least) stop on our tour is Sunder Nursery, a 16th-century heritage park complex perfect for taking a refreshing break in nature. The 90-acre complex is filled with beautifully landscaped grounds, natural water features, and restored Mughal-era monuments making for a scenic respite from the city.
After exploring Sunder Nursery, we’ll drive back to the city. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide about what else to see and do in Delhi.
