Delhi by Metro - Tour training in progress!

I wrote earlier about this new tour - Delhi by Metro, and the students from Manzil who are going to be the guides for the tour.

Here are photos from the practice runs we've been having. These are sample photos from only one half of the tour, the Old Delhi portion.

Thank you, all of you who've volunteered to be the first guinea pigs for this tour! I'm sure you'll have a great time.

On the air-conditioned Metro ride, from Connaught Place to Old Delhi's Chawri Bazaar. Everyone's busy memorising their training scripts.

Exit the Metro station, into the madness of Chawri Bazaar! Rickshaws are waiting!

At Jama Masjid - the gang leader is Shilpi, left-most, back row. She's the motivator and trainer, the chief force behind this tour.

Practising the script - led by Mansi, a volunteer at Manzil.

Shweta, another Manzil volunteer takes over from Mansi. Clearly whatever she's saying, she has everyone's full attention!

Shilpi explains Jainism, at the Jain Naughara in Kinari Bazaar.

After a hard day's work, the visit to Haldiram's is very, very welcome!

Nice pix!
Seems, they really enjoyed their food at Halidiram’s after a hard day’s work.
I am also planning a holiday trip to Delhi with the help of to explore the heritage sites of the capital city.
