About Us

The ambition of WALKATHON TOURS is to show visitors and locals alike the wealth and diversity of this unique city. Because many interesting places are not immediately visible, the best way to see and to experience them is by walking. The people of WALKATHON TOURS love the city and will be happy to show you those hidden gems.

“Both a solid historical overview and an insider window on the contemporary city”

People walk to discover a region, different ways of life: the natural, cultural and historical heritage. Anything can be a pretext for discovery, or almost, provided that the object of the discovery is close to nature and “authentic”

Not doing what everyone else does: For some, walking can also be an “intelligent” way of spending a holiday, of being what the Germans call “critically alternative”. It is a form of cultural differentiation. If walking or hiking is more forms of recreation than a sport, those who engage in it seem to be extremely attached to it. This means that walking enthusiasts will not be tempted to go to an area, however beautiful, if there are no trails or footpaths where they can walk.

WALKATHON TOURS offers private tours .The visits are designed to get the most out of your stay in Delhi  and they still have a good component of walking because… by walking you´ll get a much better feel of this unique city!

When you take a walk you travel slowly, you absorb more, interact more and experience more, you stop to smell the spices and taste the mouth watering street food. Join our slow travel movements and TAKE WALKS.

Rewari Heritage Steam Locomotive Museum: Rewari Heritage Steam Locomotive Museum is the only surviving steam loco shed in India and houses some of India’s last surviving steam locomotives. Built in 1893, it was the only loco shed in North India for a long time and a part of the track connecting Delhi with Peshawar. After steam engines were phased out by 1990, the loco shed remained in neglect for many years before it was decided by Indian Railways in December 2002 to revive it as a heritage museum.  The shed was refurbished as a heritage tourism destination, its heritage edifice was restored and a museum exhibiting Victorian-era artefacts used on the Indian rail network, along with the old signalling  system, gramophones and seats was added. The refurbished heritage museum was opened in October 2010. The engines will also be available for live demonstrations. Rewari steam loco shed, being the only surviving repository of steam locos in India housing some of India’s last surviving steam locomotives, has become an ideal choice for filmmakers. The Rewari steam locos have been rented out for various film shoots and a part of the film Gandhi, My Father was shot here.
Heritage Transport Museum: The sleepy town of Taoru in Haryana has become an unlikely addition to our list of must-see places for anyone visiting Delhi. And it’s got everything to do with it being home to the beautiful Heritage Transport Museum
