HERITAGE WALKS AND TOURS
EXPLORE DELHI FROM MAIDENS HOTEL
Maidens Hotel is the ideal base for Heritage walks of Delhi. The walks are conducted by Ms. Surekha Narain, a die-hard Dilliwalla with a reputation for leading specialized heritage tours that are imaginative and creative.
There are over 30 walk routes to choose from. Ranging from regular walks to some “off-the-beaten-track tours”, the Heritage Walks are a blend of built & natural heritage. Add-ons include music, local cuisines, and movies. The walks come with visual aids - old maps, photos, and there’s a chance to interact with local people. Travel partly by Delhi Metro, partly on foot, and maybe by auto or cycle rickshaw.
After an early breakfast on Thursday morning, set out for these 2-3 hours group walks to discover the interesting sites around Maidens Hotel. Registrations open a week in advance. Book your tour with the Reception Desk.
