Their food tours are conducted on foot and on cycle rickshaws (nice!). They focus on the Old Delhi bazaar and the haveli itself. If you book a full day tour, you’ll get to enjoy a complimentary dinner at Masterji kee Haveli besides various activities like kite flying and pigeon rearing and your host will be none other than Dhruv Gupta, founder of Masterji Kee Haveli. Discovering Old Delhi with them is fun, because their tours not only include sightseeing but also yummy food tasting!
