As the month of Ramadan sets onto our country, it brings with itself a parade of heartfelt celebrations and delicious food in the form of Iftar. Hence, we bring to you a list of tours that let you indulge in a complete experience of food in the most important cities of India.
The food on the streets of Shahjahanabad is worth dying for all year round, yet the month of Ramzan brings with it a magical new flavour to all the delicacies, full of love and warmth.
With the whole of Old Delhi painted in an entirely different colour and vibe, food is about more than just taste. It is about the entire experience of walking on the Jama Masjid road and letting the joy of Iftar sync into you. To literally walk you through this experience, Reality Tours and Travels is conducting a guided Ramadan Tour of Delhi this year. The dates are yet to be announced but you can book it online at a price of ₹ 1500 per person which includes all the food.

From Crawford Market to Mohammad Ali Road, surrounding Minara Masjid; the epicentre of all the Ramadan celebrations, the iftar food here in Mumbai neighbourhoods is nothing short of delectable. The kebabs, especially the ones available at Haji Tikka in Bhendi Bazaar is a special delight apart from the wide range of iftar delicacies, of course.

Every year when the holy month of Ramadan mixes with Kolkata’s summer colours, the otherwise busy city slows down to turn into a centre of the celebration. The chaotic streets scented with the aroma of iftari flavours call for savouring the haleem, the kebabs and the faluda.
