The ride is quite bumpy due to the poor condition of the streets. Each street seems to have its own specialty such as shoes, pots and pans, spices, etc. Expect loud noises, honking traffic, cows and camels in the streets, which all add to the ambiance of the area. IN the flower and spice area, don't be surprised if you... More

The only way to experience Old Delhi is by rickshaw. It makes it was thru busy markets and streets. It would be next to impossible to walk....the craziness of this area talks India to you.

Our guide hired a rickshaw for us. he rode on the back. We rode through the back streets, electric cables everywhere. We saw bullocks pulling heavy laden cart, men pulling carts and bicycles piled high with goods. The streets were very narrow and full of pot holes. Our cyclists had to push sometimes. We saw a hole in the wall... More

A rickshaw ride through Old Delhi is a must. We rode through the crowded streets and were able to get a good sense of life in the old city. The drivers seem well versed in navigating through the busy traffic and understand how the hierarchy of Delhi traffic works. Do not book through Thomas Cook, though. Our guide was so... More

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
