A labyrinth of historic relics, kitschy bazaars and bustling cityscapes, Delhi is a metropolis of manifold character. India's capital and a major gateway to the country, contemporary Delhi is a stirring amalgamation of fast spiralling skyscrapers, mega structures, historic pride, heritage monuments and an ethereal legacy. But its history isn't without delectable oomph. Home to a vast palate of Nizami, Punjabi, fusion and international cuisines, Delhi is a food lover's haven. With an unending line of food vendors orchestrating a symphony of fragrances, allow the city to treat you to its versatile and rich flavours - from the street food of North India to gourmet fare, roadside dhabas to fine dining.

  • Day 2
    IN DELHI
    • Hotel Ibis
    • Enjoy a city tour of Old and New Delhi.

      This morning, following a leisurely breakfast, take in the sights and sounds of Old Delhi with the visit to the magical old town.

      A word of advice: before leaving your hotel, we suggest using the washroom as the tour of the old city takes a couple of hours to navigate comfortably on your wheelchair and there aren't any clean accessible toilets nearby. And, of course, don't forget to pack your suntan lotion, sunhat, etc.

      Your introduction to the grand old city begins with a short drive around the locality enveloping the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. Situated on a mound in the heart of the erstwhile capital of the Mughals, this impressive red sandstone structure projects beautifully into the Old Delhi skyline with a courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees.

      After having experienced all the hustle-bustle of the old city, we now head to the calm and serene Raj Ghat - the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. Raj Ghat with its sublime expanse of lush green trees affords a perfect ode to one of the greatest souls ever. It is bound to leave you with an aftertaste of inspiration.

      We now visit the Red Fort. As you disembark from your vehicle, stay unfazed if you are approached by some of the vendors, as we happen to be in one of the busiest parts of the city.

      Once the residence of the Mughal Kings till 1857, the Red Fort was the pride of the Mughal empire, built at the pinnacle of their reign. The entire complex is well ramped, friendly enough for the wheelchair.

      This afternoon, we start a mesmerising tour of the City of Djinns with a visit to Imperial Delhi, accompanied by your local guide. Soak in the grandiose of the city with a drive past the imposing 42-metre tall India Gate (war memorial arch), set amidst the sprawling gardens. With its eternal flame and the names inscribed on its arch, it affords a perfect tribute to the 82,000 soldiers of the Indian Army who died in the First World War.

      We now drive past the Parliament House and the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the President's Residence), a structure epitomising India's strength, democratic traditions and secular character.

      We now head to the magnificent Tomb of Humayun, a perfect culmination of distinctly evolved Mughal architecture in the Indian subcontinent, inspiring the Taj Mahal.

      This impressive structure is built on a monumental scale, grandeur of design, square garden (charbagh) setting inspired by the description of paradise in the Holy Quran, with no precedence in the Islamic world for a mausoleum such as this.

      A beautiful synthesis of Persian architecture and Indian traditions, exemplified by the arched alcoves, corridors, the high double dome, the kiosks, giving it a pyramidal outline from distance. As you face the tomb, visualise perfect symmetry - the cornerstone of Mughal architecture.

      The initial path leading you to the main complex of Humayun's tomb has some slightly bumpy patches of cobbled stones, which gradually smoothen out into fine sandstone gravel, leading up to the base of the plinth carrying the main mausoleum.

      Though the principal edifice on the plinth is inaccessible to wheelchairs, it is anyway viewed better from a distance.
      We drive through the lively streets of South Delhi and head to the captivating 13th century Qutub Minar. A well ramped complex with easy access to most parts within the precincts, the foundation of this masterpiece in stone was laid by Qutbu'd-Din Aibak in AD 1199, to which were added three more storeys by his successor and son-in-law, Shamsu'd-Din Iltutmish.

      Qutub Minar, the leaning tower of India (it leans 2 feet off its axis) located ideally in the lush green complex still stands tall despite being hit several times by lightening and earthquakes. Though, it was the first formal entry of Islamic rule in India, its various structures offer very interesting insights into its architecture.

      Time permitting, enjoy some shopping at the Emporio designer mall.

      Following your fill of sightseeing, return to the hotel.
