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

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
