Welcome to Delhi, the capital of India whose past dates back three millennia, through ruins and legend. You are met at the airport by a private transfer and taken to your hotel with the rest of the day at your leisure. The city streets are filled with both history and modernity, wrapped around the ruins of seven ancient cities, where much of the historic walls encompass the vivacious Chandni Chowk. Aromatic spices, from ginger to masala, drift through the air. Rickshaws and horse drawn carts pour through the streets.
Vast colors are displayed like rainbows in the stalls, where vendors sell the cloth and saris that light the walkways both day and night. Your arrival in India is almost overwhelming in its iridescence. Along the paths of Dilli Haat, the handicraft village, you will find locals and visitors alike, strolling beside stalls overflowing with handmade pottery and geometrically woven cloth bags, paper lanterns, and pashminas. The artistry, whether in the local shops or along the almost fabled architecture, is mesmerizing, allowing you to settle in to the city filled with splendor.
