Welcome to Delhi Magic, a refreshingly new way to experience Delhi, Agra and North India!
Like all popular tourist destinations, Delhi, Agra and North India have their share of cookie-cutter tours and standard itineraries. But if you prefer something more insightful and interesting, take a look at the tours listed on our Tour Menu.

These tours have been designed by people with a deep understanding of India’s history, culture, cuisine and quirks. In Delhi, we’ll show you the city’s grand monuments and attractions, but we’ll also show you the ‘real’ Delhi – its people, its religions, its streets and bazaars. In Agra, we’ll take you to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, but we can also help you discover fascinating aspects of life under the Mughals. In Rajasthan and Northern India, we'll ensure your itinerary showcases the rich diversity that India has to offer.

We offer personalised tours by car for independent travellers, bus tours for larger groups, and walking tours for small groups of 2-6 people.

Our Tour Guides, many of them women, are knowledgeable, articulate and professional, and they enjoy taking visitors around.

Apart from the tours listed on the right-hand menu of this page, if there’s something else you want to see and do, we’d love to create a custom-itinerary for you.

Delhi to Agra by train – a photoessay

It started, as many trips do, with chaos. We were taking the 6:15 express train from Delhi to Agra. We got to the New Delhi Railway Station in time, but were met by a crazy mess of cycle-rickshaws and cars and autos and buses, all trying to get to the same place, and weaving in and out of the "lanes"…More

The choices women make - an Indian viewpoint

When my sis and I were growing up, the kitchen clearly seemed to be the arch-enemy of self-respecting women. Around me, there appeared to be only two types of women: nondescript mousy housewives who did nothing but cook, and gloriously glamorous ones who went to that exciting place called "office".… More

Shopping in India is a frame of mind

Many overseas visitors to India are taken aback at the kind of street shopping experience they have. The touristy parts of the country - Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan - are full of pushy vendors trying to sell them things at downright outrageous prices.
