Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate.
Children must be between 6 and 11 years of age inclusively.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour
Your "Home Cook" experience will take between 5-6 hours, and is one of the most unique and authentic things to do in Delhi. This is not just a meal, but a dining experience in a family home with Intrepid's local friends. Your Delhi tour starts with meeting our local guide, transfer to the Metro station by cycle rickshaws to start our real life experience.
Head to our host's home provides us with an opportunity to learn more from our local guide about what to expect for the evening. Upon arrival we will be greeted by our gracious hosts and welcomed into their home.
As dinner is being prepared our local guide will provide information on the lifestyles of Indians, the traditions of home life, the importance of family in Indian culture, arranged marriages - and of course, the food! Dine on a traditional Indian home-cooked meal which will be predominantly vegetarian and sure to tantalize our taste buds like no other.
Our hosts and local guide will be more than happy to provide as much information as we desire on the dishes provided, their ingredients and how best to eat them, something you wont find on other Delhi tours. We can choose to do it Indian style and eat we our hands, utensils are available if we want. At the end of the meal we will have an opportunity to enjoy same marsala chai. 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 our hosts, our local guide will assist with getting a taxi back to our hotel as we end our ultimate local culinaryexperience!
