Our one-of-a-kind tours have been covered in various newspapers, TV channels and magazines and are included among 'the top 50 trips of the world' by Outlook Traveller (a top travel magazine in India). If you are looking to explore Delhi's rich history, heritage, religions, cuisines and culture, then you will love this experience. With us, you get transported 400 years back in history and glide through the narrow lanes of Chandni Chowk (The Moonlit Square of India), the most popular street in Old Delhi. Take the tour and witness the architectural marvels, the multicolored facades, beautifully decorated shops, ethnically dressed men and women and get bombarded by the fragrances emanating from the potpourri of eateries that line these historical alleys. Included in the tour (exclusive offerings) are foods from famous eateries, real time live-commentary, visit to an exclusive photo-gallery and souvenir booklet. Our expert Delhi enthusiasts (passionate guides) show the city from the local's perspective and tell tales that breathe life into the history of one of the greatest heritage cities in the world and help the guests discover the real places that they will not find in the guide books. Our 'holistic tours' include visits to Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Spice Market, Wedding Market, various Religious Shrines, Silver Bazaar, Town Hall, Zeenat Mahal, old mansions, and other hidden gems. We have paired up with several Delhi hotels and have served dignitaries including the ambassadors from the American and the French Embassies and many other guests from international organization like W.H.O., U.N.E.S.C.O., World Bank, U.N.D.P., Bill Gates Foundation, U.N. and others. We also offer tours in New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. « less

A lot of people I've talked with don't enjoy Delhi, and Old Delhi in particular. Maybe it's because they haven't taken this tour! I enjoy discovering things on my own, but I admit that in Delhi you sometimes need help in scratching the surface. I have also done the Old Delhi Bazaar Walk, which is the no. 1 activity on... More

I took their 3 hour private tour of Old Delhi on their enchanting rickshaws. It was everything I had hoped for in a tour. I could never have explored this city on my own, as it quite complicated. The staff was very friendly and I felt like we were being pampered. I enjoyed my experience and would encourage others to... More

My wife and I arranged a trip with this company last month for 5 days to do the golden triangle. (Delhi Jaipur and Agra) before we travelled down south on our own. I have to say that Taruna at When in India could not have been more attentive. She called every day (sometimes twice a day) to make sure that... More

Words alone cannot describe our fantastic guide Ritu. A very well educated young lady, who was informative, knowledgeable, funny, interactive and passionate about her city. She gave us a 3 hour tour of the old town that gave us great insight into this beautiful city. It covered a lot of area and different activities and places and including free food.... More

Our cycle rickshaw ride through the heart of Old Delhi was one of the most pleasant experiences of my entire India trip. Ritu our fab guide took us to different kinds of places during our 3 hour morning tour that started at 8 am at our request. Her expert drivers easily navigated through the tiny by-lanes and were really strong.... More

I visited Delhi with a couple of friends and wanted to feel and see real India. On recommendation of some local acquaintances took their morning tour and this proved to be a great way to experience the city; soak in the culture and sight-see some monuments of National importance. We thoroughly enjoyed the company of our expert guide Ritu, who... More

This is a great way to get your bearings in a huge city like Delhi. The guide was excellent; both welcoming and kind. Learnt lots on this solo tour which I considered to be excellent value. Thanks for a great first day in India

The weather in Delhi is very hot in Delhi, therefore, I was not sure whether to take this tour on rickshaws. To avoid the extreme heat, we started the tour early morning, which was an excellent idea. I have been to Delhi several times but it was good to see it through the eyes of a local person. Our tour... More
