Home Cooked Delhi: Experience the real India as you dine with a local family in their own home. This is an ideal opportunity to learn all about local customs, traditions and of course food.
The tour starts with a trip to the metro station by rickshaw. As you head to the home of your hosts for the evening, your guide will tell you about what to expect for the evening. On arrival you will be greeted by your welcoming hosts and invited into their home. While dinner is being prepared you will learn all about Indian lifestyle, the traditions of home life, the importance of family – and, of course, food!
Dine on a traditional Indian home-cooked meal which will be predominantly vegetarian and sure to tantalize your taste buds like no other. Your hosts and guide will be more than happy to tell you all about the dishes they have prepared, the ingredients and how they are made. You can choose to eat with your hands Indian style, but cutlery is also available should you so desire. At the end of the meal it's time to enjoy a glass of aromatic chai masala. As alcohol is not part of everyday life of an Indian family, it will not be served with the meal. After saying thank you and goodbye to your hosts, your local guide will arrange for you to get a taxi back to the hotel. This late afternoon/evening excursion takes between four to five hours.
