One Day Itinerary for Delhi

Delhi is NOT a city that you can see in a day! However, if you are really pressed for time and simply must cover all the major attractions in Delhi, this tour could work for you. You will need a lot of stamina, and regretfully, you will need to limit the amount of time at each major monument to an hour or so.

If you want to get a flavour of Delhi and do things at a leisurely pace, we would recommend you pick either day from our two day tour of Delhi instead. You will not see it all, but it will be a more satisfying experience overall.

You can visit the places you missed out on via the CaptivaTour guides. Seriously, you can.

Day 1

Morning

Qutub Minar

Start your morning with an early visit to the Qutub Minar (CaptivaTour Audio Guide available), a victory tower that is Delhi’s most recognisable monument. If you skipped breakfast, catch a coffee and a snack at a nearby coffee shop.

Humayun’s Tomb

Next visit Humayun’s Tomb (CaptivaTour Audio Guide available), Delhi’s grandest monument and the architectural precursor to the Taj Mahal

Lunch

Head to nearby Khan Market for a variety of lunch options of different cuisines and budgets. You could also head to Pandara road market for a couple of superb but pricey Indian options.

Afternoon

Rajpath & India Gate

Make a quick stop at the India Gate memorial on Rajpath and take in the sight of the majestic buildings there including the Presidential Palace and the Parliament.

Jama Masjid

Head on via Connaught Place to Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India.

Red Fort

The imposing Red Fort (CaptivaTour Audio Guide available) was the seat of power of the Mughal Empire and even now the venue of the Prime Minister’s speech on Independence day.

Evening and Dinner

Old Delhi Markets

Round the day off with a stroll through Chandni Chowk, one of Delhi’s busiest bazaars for over 400 years, where each street has shops trading in different articles.

For dinner, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could sample the kebabs and other cuisine in Chawri Bazaar in the Old Delhi area, or head back to Connaught Place for safer options.
