NEW DELHI, January 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ —
HopOn India, an audio tour App launched by Desiwalks Tours, is pleased to announce the launch of its Delhi tours. With the upcoming launch of Jaipur tour, HopOn India will now be present in five cities including Mumbai, Varanasi and Kolkata.
HopOn India is launching in Delhi with three walks – The Humayun Tomb walk, A Chandni Chowk food walk and an upcoming tour of Qutab Minar enclave.
The Humayun Tomb walk, which is now live on the App, tells the story of the ‘Unlucky Emperor’, as the listener enjoys the grandeur of India’s first Persian style tomb and garden beautifully restored by the Aga Khan Foundation. One even gets a chance to seek the blessings of Hazrat Nizammudin Aulia, whose shrine is nearby and part of the tour.
The second tour is of Chandni Chowk. But this tour is for the gastronomes as HopOn India takes the tourist to the best vegetarian joints of the area. The listener will get to taste the jalebis, the khurchan, the parathas, the bedmis et al. Written by well known food critic Rahul Verma, the walk covers all the ‘hole in the wall’ joints that make the food of Chandni Chowk what it is.
It is believed Delhi got its name from the Hindi word ‘Dhili’ or loose. Legend has it that a Rajput ruler tried to uproot the Iron Pillar, built in 4th century at the Qutab Minar much against the consensus that it will bring misfortune. When the rule of the King floundered, citizens lamented ‘Kili to dhili bhai’ or the nail has been loosened. Listen to such nuggets on HopOn India’s upcoming Qutab Minar walk.
HopOn India will also be launching the Jaipur Pink City walk soon. Jaipur was painted pink to welcome the Prince of Wales in 1876. This gesture reflects the generous welcome that the city offers to all visitors. From the royal City Palace, to the scientifically built Jantar Mantar, to the intriguing Hawa Mahal, the pink city walk captures the grandness of royalty that this part of the country is known for. It not only includes the walk through the cacophonic but also the colourful bazaars of Jaipur. The tour covers Johri Bazaar and Bapu Bazaar. The listeners will get to taste the authentic food of Rajasthan even as they bargain with the shopkeepers. One can learn how to tie the turban, apply henna on the palms and buy the wooden dolls called kathputlis as a souvenir.
HopOn India is also pleased to announce that they will be participating in SATTE 2019 to be held from 16 January to 18 January 2019 at the India Expo Centre (IEML), Greater Noida, Delhi NCR. HopOn India will be in stall B 243 – Hall 10.
