I've won several accolades for my focused efforts while working for twenty years in the Travel & Tourism Industry. I was also recognized and received a SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD in Dec 2004 at Los Angeles, California. I have also been trained at LSG Sky Chef in Hong Kong and Tokyo Flight Kitchen in Japan while setting up catering department for Japan Airlines in India.
I am passionate about photography and Travelling. I am a traveler, not a tourist. I love to walk and interact with locals wherever I travel. The most memorable walk from my travel was crossing the Hemisphere during my Trip to Kenya. I am very fond of flying kites and riding bikes.
I strongly believe that local residents best know and understand how their neighborhood works. Being born and brought up in this part of the city I enjoy sharing my Old Delhi with our guests and introducing them to its rich heritage, culture and food. Our walks are an experience, which helps our guests to get in touch with local people to feel the pulse of the city. Each experience in Old Delhi is different and I am flexible to make all possible alteration to see a smile on your face.
My Journey of this walking tour has given me an opportunity to make several friends around the world and learn about different cultures. I have been giving these walks for last 14 years. Earlier, I was working as a Vice President for one of the American company and I used to conduct only on the weekends to maintain my passion. Now, I am actively taking these walks for the last 6 years, almost on daily basis.
Old Delhi also has Asia's largest spice market. You will be amazed to see that how this part of the city works so smoothly even after having almost one million visitors every day. We call Old Delhi as Heart of the city.
A Recent Review of this guide
My children and I had an excellent morning with Dhruv. We were able to see, taste and experience Old Delhi like a local. Food was delicious and sanitary. Best Lassi ever! The home cooked meal at Dhruv's havelli was outstanding and one of the best meals of our trip. We had experiences that would not have been possible without the expertise and knowledge of a life long Old Delhi reaident. I highly recommend this experience. It is much more than a tour!
