Shah Jahan Tour
This tour will give you exhilarating glimpse into the life and times of the great Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan and his capital – Shahjahanabad. At the time of its construction in the 17th Century, it was arguably, the most prosperous and beautiful city in the world. Today, when you pass through its four hundred year old web of alleys infused with the smell of brewing tea and simmering breakfast, you see a mind boggling co-existence of the past and the future.
It’s a well-known fact that behind every historical capital there is a great big river. The tour is an ode to river Yamuna, which has been a silent witness to Delhi’s history. Starting from the little lanes of Shahjahanabad, while the city is still sleepy we will pass along the magnificently formidable walls of the Red Fort and reach the meditative quiet banks of the Yamuna at Nigambodh Ghat. A boat tied along its shores – migratory birds circling above the calm waters – unravels the ritualistic devotion with which the Hindus treat the historic river. Concluding with a memorable view of the Jama Masjid back through the streets of Old Delhi.
The Raj tour is a truly breath-taking ride down Delhi’s more recent history. Starting from the narrow labyrinthine back lanes of Old Delhi, passing through quaint old ‘socialist-style’ quarters of government employees and almost magically landing in the midst of a spectacular view of the Presidential Palace and India Gate encircled by spotless clean, tree-lined wide roads – the Raj Tour is a very stimulating and comprehensive catalogue of the lives of people who make this great capital today.
The Haveli (Noblemen’s mansion) tour is a spirited and satiating plunge, straight into the deep-end of Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad). At the peak of Emperor Shah Jahan’s rule, his loyal noblemen controlled the social, cultural and economic affairs from their imposing, fortress-like lavish mansions that were built as ‘earthly reminders of the pleasures of Paradise itself’. Three hundred years of decadence, war, re-building and several regime changes later, the much smaller Havelis of today still manage to preserve a stunningly placid beauty that echoes haunting reminders of a much grander past. We recreate for you, a spectacularly evocative experience pieced together through the lives and stories of the people who called these Havelis home.
A stimulating and ambitious introduction to the many lives of “Dilli” through the many lanes of Delhi. This tour leads you through a city of mystics, saints, poets, rebels, forgotten Kings, English ladies, refugee colonies and nameless tombs – all buried in the giddying contrast offered by the up-scale South Delhi neighbourhoods. Starting in the over-700-year-old settlement of Nizamuddin this tour hacks its way through the 21st century concrete jungle and flashy lights of South Delhi to show you a city alive in unimaginable fragments.
