This was the only time we let ourselves be ripped-off during our visit to India. A 'Guide' offered to show us 'Old Delhi' by Rickshaw....the only way other than by foot to see it due to very narrow passages. Was quite enjoyable but we were vastly overcharged for the priviledge

The rickshaw ride through old Delhi was amazing. The market has so many sights and sounds, and the rich tapestry of colors in the cloth, sari and jewelry shops was something to see. The streets are very narrow and crowded so you would not see as much of it any other way. Highly recommended!

Our guide told us to pay 300Bs(not sure for his and ours bike or just ours) we paid a bit more. The old Delhi is so poor and fu.ked up... But you must do a trip like this to experience it

This is an experience not to be missed. You really see the true India, the hustle and bustle, amazing sights, sounds and smells. Nobody bothers you apart from the children who will leave you alone if you shake your head and ignore them.

We haggled and got a driver for 150 per hour. He took us through the backstreets of the old part of Delhi ... Lots of markets and shops. He was very amiable and took us where we wanted to go and took some initiative when we weren't sure. Although his commentary was stilted, it was a visual feast anyway that... More

This was the best way to get to see Old Delhi, hear about her history and cover lots of ground in a short space of time. The benefit of getting to see so much but in the (relative) safety of a Rickshaw was appealing. Our guide was so knowledgeable and shared so much information the whole time via the reliable... More

We took the hour-long rickshaw ride, which turned into 1 hr 15 min because the driver was confused about where to meet our group at the end. I can't even put into words how intense and fascinating this experience was for us. Riding down narrow alleys among the locals, peering into sari shops and gold shops, smelling the spice market,...

The National Capital Territory of Delhi (NCT) is a special union territory of India jointly administered by the Central government, the NCT elected government and three municipal corporations.
