As the name suggests this tours takes the guests on a journey where they engage in 5 different experiences that give an immersive perspective on this city. The Five Senses tour of Delhi by No Footprints is a unique offering where you can feast your senses to your heart’s delight. We’ve carefully curated a selection of experiences that will transport you across Delhi’s rich cultural history. As you walk down narrow lanes that have changed over centuries, experience for yourself the syncretism that has served as both Delhi’s greatest strength and vulnerability.

Sight – Red sandstone and white marble were two of the most prominently used building materials in the Mughal era. Despite having been plundered when Delhi was colonised, Mughal structures have retained their regal appearance. The massive red & white structures, adorned with intricate carvings, laid out geometrically, are truly a sight to behold. Embark on a tour as we recreate the legends and beauty of Mughal era.

Taste – If there is a legacy of Delhi’s cuisine that is popular world over it is butter chicken. What has today been reinvented in some of the fanciest restaurants in the world, had humble origins in a small village of Punjab. In a matter of minutes, ride your senses to be transported back to catch a taste of the era where it was invented as a gravy to Tandoori chicken.

Sound – The magic that the Gurudwara envelopes you into, as the sun goes down and it gets cooler, is undeniable. What ties together this beautiful experience is the sweet sound of the gurbani playing in the background as you reflect on the experience your senses have gone through.

Smell – There are several stories about the origin of ittar, including one involving Mughal emperor Jahangir, who is credited as the first patron of the industry because his wife, empress Noor Jahan, used to bathe in water perfumed with rose petals. Visit an 8th generation ittar studio where you will get to smell a wide range of ittars and mix your own unique concoction that can be named after you!

Touch – With a population that has exploded in recent years, Delhi is home to children who have long been abandoned. We will visit an orphanage where the children are provided food, boarding, medicine and education. As you interact with the students, you’ll be touched by how syncretic living impacts their life.
