I searched for a ccoking class in Delhi. This option was quite expensive but unfortunately was neither a cooking class, nor in Delhi. The event took place nearly 3 hours north of Delhi and there was no cooking class. I cannot recommedn this tour.

After two weeks in India and visiting many of the typical tourist places my husband and I felt like we did not have a good idea of how people lived. Rahul and our one day visit to a local village changed that. We spend a wonderful day with our guide Rahul. He was a very pleasant, welcoming and informative guide. He answered questions on life, religion, cultural expectations - nothing seemed off limits. We were picked up promptly at 8am by a driver who spoke very good English. After about two hours we stopped, met Rahul and had a very good Indian breakfast. We then drove another two hours to the village. We were welcomed warmly by a family, served juice and snacks and then shown around the village - the local school, temples, and their farm land. Although they spoke little English we asked many questions and Rahul translated for us. As we were walking many people in the village came to welcome us and have pictures taken. Everyone seemed very excited and happy to have visitors. We then had a delicious lunch at our host's family home, prepared by the wife but served by the husband. After lunch we met the extended family for chai, hugs, laughter and many pictures. Our five hours in the village ended far too quickly. We would have loved to stay and done the cooking class and dinner but we had a flight to catch. We were driven back to Delhi, a drive that took just over four hours due to the traffic congestion. Our local village tour was a definite highlight of our time in India - it was an amazing and memorable day. It is a tour we would definite recommend but do prepare yourself for the long driving times. Thank you Rahul and Virsa tours for giving us a true taste of Indian life! Nameste!

I had travelled all over the India. but this tour was once in a lifetime time experience.
This was the best tour. If I try to find a single problem in this tour then I will not be able to find.If you want you really feel the nature and real India then go for this trip. Everything this was very properly managed in this tour and what a person is. What ever he promised before trip he delivered that.

This was a once in a lifetime sort of travel experience. Unlike other local village tours offered in the Dehli area or others I've attended, Virsa paired us with a town that wasn't set up as a tourist experience, and seemed to have experienced minimal contact with previous travelers. This meant that the people we met seemed as excited to meet travelers as we were to have a window into their daily lives. The cooking portion of the tour was equally authentic as we joined some extended members of our guide's family for dinner and cooking. The dishes were relatively simple, but it's a great experience for non-chefs looking to get insight into local cooking. Overall our best day in India.

Amazing experience! Way more than what I had anticipated from this tour. I got a chance to see the Indian village culture so closely and I felt a part of it as long as I was there..
3 generations living together, and their bonding with each other, was a unique experience for me.
And the way they welcomed me to their places, is something that can not be expressed in words! One of the best memories I have ever had in my travelling life. Highly recommended. Thank you Virsa Travels!!
