If you want to learn more about the life and time of Indian legend Mahatma Gandhi, then this is the Delhi tour for you. Experience Delhi from a local perspective with rides on public transport to visit all the historical monuments associated with Mahatma Ghandi.

Mahatma Gandhi was born in 1869 in Porbander, western India, and was assassinated in on January 30th, 1948. His legacy of non-violent protest lives on in spirit today as a major influence on Indian society and the international community. He pioneered the philosophy of "satyagraha", based on truth and resistance to injustice through non-violent resistance. In India he is officially regarded as the Father of the Nation. His birthday, 2nd October, is commemorated as a national holiday, and is a spiritual experience and one of those iconic things to do in Delhi.
