I would recommend this as a means of ravel throughout the old city. The area is chaotic and the traffic is a nightmare these guys know how to navigate around. highly recommended.

While visiting the Golden Triangle, this was part of our spare time. It is a brilliant way to see the narrow streets, It is noisy, but would not have missed this. Has to be one of the best days in this very busy place. has to be one of the

A trip to Delhi would not be complete without a couple of rickshaws rides around the old town. Yes it's loud, can be smelly and intimidating but go with the flow and just be part of it. No words can describe how all your senses are invaded. Loved it

Away from the air-conditioned, carpeted hotels, the five-star cuisines, the suited and well adorned, a visit to Old Delhi gives the visitor a taste of the authentic, the genuine and the original India. The disorderliness (if not chaos) of the streets, the traffic and the pedestrians, the din of surging humanity, the pungent smells and fragrances of the spices, the... More

I don't do roller coasters and I hate horror movies. I put a ride on a rickshaw through Chandni Chowk up there with them BUT I LOVED IT!!! And will do it again when I return. I was laughing hysterically the whole way as I watched the bullock carts, buses, lorries, car, bicycles, pedestrians and free agent cows all making... More

If you go to the Fatephur mosque, take the chance to do this ride. Our driver did the negotiating for an hour long ride through the narrow alleyways and the madness that is the Chadni Chowk. Cost about £5 - just be careful if they offer to take you to a stall - we did stop for the experience but... More

This was great fun seeing the people going about their business as you traverse the narrow alleys of old Delhi, as someone else mentioned look up at the masses of cabling where people have tapped into the mains for free power! Also look out for some of the very old beautifully carved doors. I would also be careful not to... More

Our rickshaw ride through Old Delhi was a highlight of the visit. Our driver was knowledgeable and demonstrated genuine concern about our well being. Our car driver worked the deal with the rickshaw driver for an hour long tour. I think we paid 500 rupees and provided a nice tip. Navigating the tight alleyways was amazing and he explained things... More
