Leave the tourist trail and spend an evening with a real Indian family enjoying delicious home-cooked food and learning about local culture.

While magnificent buildings and monuments are an exciting part of travel, you cannot really feel you know and understand a country unless you have contact with local people. This delightful Delhi tour allows you to do just that.

Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, you will travel by cycle rickshaw and Metro to visit the home of a hospitable local family.

You will be served a mouth-watering array of tasty dishes, which you can eat by hand, local style, or with a knife and fork, as you wish. During the evening you will learn all about Indian traditions of home life, the extended family and how it works, marriage customs – and of course, the food!

This special evening is much more than just a meal. It will be a memory to treasure and one of the highlights of your Indian holiday.


India is known for its amazing food, and we know just where you can find the most authentic culinary experience in Delhi: at home with a local.

The 'Home Cooked' Delhi food tour is less tour and more unique local experience, and is hands down one of the most authentic things to do in Delhi. It's not just a meal, but a dining experience in a family home, where you'll learn about local culture, taste incredible food, and make new friends.

Meet your guide, take private transportation and make your way to your host's house. Your local guide will give you the lowdown on what to expect for the evening, before we're welcomed into our host's home.

As dinner is being prepared, your local guide will provide information on the lifestyles of Indians, the traditions of home life, the importance of family in Indian culture, arranged marriages - and of course, the food! You'll dine on a traditional Indian home-cooked meal, which will be predominantly vegetarian and sure to tantalise our taste buds like no other.

Our hosts and local guide will be more than happy to provide as much information as we desire on the dishes provided, their ingredients, and how best to eat them, something you wont find on other Delhi tours. You can choose to do it Indian style and eat with your hands, but utensils are available if you'd like.

After saying thank you and goodbye to our hosts, our driver shall drop you back to your hotel within Delhi.
