Check-in/Dinner at Hotel – Haveli Dharampura
India is the most diverse country in the world and its capital Delhi represents
this essence. We designed this tour for the traveller who doesn’t just visit a
place, but seeks to understand and feel a part of it.
We’ll visit several different neighbourhoods, markets, and food venues. We’ll walk through the morning vegetable market, where farmers from nearby villages bring the fresh produce of the day, listen to the splashing of the laundrymen cleaning the linen of hundreds of hotels from the surrounding area, and witness the humbling generosity of a Sikh community. A stone’s throw away from there, we find the elegant colonial architecture of Sir Edwin Lutyen’s British New Delhi, followed by sipping ‘Chai’ in Asia’s largest Spice Market, dating back to the 17th century and ending at a monastery in our own Mini Tibet. These glimpses of day to day life from diverse parts of India seems
surreal at times, seeing places so close in distance, yet so different.

Check-in at Hotel – Ranjit Vilas
An afternoon visit to the Golden Temple, the greatest pilgrimage site of Sikhism
in the world, including a “Langar” meal in the world’s largest Community
Kitchen, where volunteers serve a free meal for as many as 100,000 people per
day. Initiated as a way to feed the poor and needy, the “Langar” is a symbol of
etiquette, communal harmony and dedication, as people sit together in large
numbers to share a meal. Service to mankind is the true essence of this
Optional city tour to nearby historic sites such as Jallianwala Bagh, Maharaja
Ranjit Singh Museum, Durgiana Temple.
Evening Non-Veg Food Trail– Amritsar has evolved as a cultural centre since its
formation in 1574, and food has always been an important component of its
evolution. We will try Amritsar’s famous non-veg delicacies, Makhan fish,
Tandoori Chicken and more, while exploring the city’s bustling markets, all on
an electric rickshaw.
Breakfast at Hotel
The real essence of Punjab lies in its lush green fields, water canals, poultry farms and rustic lifestyle. A day trip to rural “Punjabiyat” gives the best opportunity to explore all of it. We’ll have a tractor ride to fetch veggies for our lunch, visit a local Gurudwara all designed to leave the urban existence behind for a time.
