Afterward, take a RICKSHAW RIDE through Chandni Chowk, a captivating local bazaar. Here, ancient alleyways are lined with quaint shops selling all sorts of goods and souvenirs-from silver and saris to spices and electronics. After lunch in a local restaurant, enjoy a bit of leisure time.

To add to this memorable experience, you'll also travel by TONGAS (horsedrawn carriage) during your visit. Later, visit AGRA FORT, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, built by the Moghul Emperor Akbar.
