Your first encounter with this vibrant country may involve surreal scenes like swarming crowds lining the airport arrival area, a lone cow wandering through chaotic traffic, the persistent blaring of car horns, hard working farm women in their brilliant coloured saris or trucks so overloaded they look like they might tumble on their side. Wherever you look in amazing India it is a feast of sights, colours, sounds and smells. Delhi the capital of India is a city of 19 million people. The city is choked with smog and plastic waste but there are efforts to improve air quality with natural gas-powered Tuk Tuks. Traffic is a nightmare and it takes a lot of careful planning to get anywhere on time, an hour to get from the airport to the city centre. Delhi is made up of two parts, Old Delhi and New Delhi. Our tour would include some of the highlights of both cities but we were aware we would only be scratching the surface yIs of this vast metropolis.
