Attraction details
Owner description: When in India offers exhilarating yet leisurely tours of the charming Old Delhi in specially designed pedicabs (rickshaws) and includes an exclusive visit to an old haveli (mansion) built in 1860. 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.

The team were extremely accommodating and caring. They went above and beyond to assist with everything - including getting us a full refund for accommodation which we incorrectly booked. We were often contacted to ensure that we were safe, happy etc. And the driver was great! We decided to extend our time using the driver and the team helped us... More

We booked a private one day tour to Agra. All went perfectly smooth, despite our booking was quite on shot notice. Taruna was always quick with responses and highly professional - even during the tour she called us several times (!) to make sure everything went acceding to plan. The tour itself was very well organised. Pick-up from the hotel... More

this is a must do in Delhi. The only way to see the old city. It is informative and stimulating. The spice market is a symphony for both the eyes and the nose. The tour guides are the best and will give you an unvarnished opinion of India, Delhi and the Indian view of the world. Our guide Ritu was... More

As independent travelers, we thought we could follow the walking tour listed in our India guidebook. At the last minute, we changed our minds and booked this tour instead (fast email communication - a definite plus!). I am so glad we invested in this tour. It's not cheap relative to the rest of India, but it's definitely worth it. We... More

Our When In India tour of Old Delhi was truly one of our highlights in Delhi!! Through the bustling streets, we had the opportunity to experience the Delhi we imagined- which included a variety sites, smells, tastes and sounds. Our guide, Ritu, was personable, friendly and provided details and information not found in tour books. The microphone and individual sound... More

We had a great time during our tour through Old Delhi- I highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide was lovely, personable and very knowledgeable, so special thanks go to her for making this tour even greater! The organisation was brilliant - we were very well looked after when walking around and riding on rickshaws. I can't think of anything... More

As explained previously you are equipped with a head set whilst Ritu talks you through all the delights that you pass by, through the narrow market streets,... More

What an amazing introduction to India! We strongly recommend a "When in India Rickshaw Ride" - having Ritu describe the history, religion and architecture, and guide us through the crowded alleyways and bazaar that make up Old Delhi was an experience that we will never forget. Thank you Ritu for a most entertaining 3 hour tour, and to our driver,... More

I highly recommend this unique tour in Old Delhi and this tour is great to experience the Old Delhi for a short time. Ritu was an excellent guide and drivers were very kind and took care of us really well. We not only rode on rickshaw but, walked around the street and tasted the street foods. The personal sound system... More

We took the old Dehli rickshaw tour in the morning and rented a car and driver from WII for afternoon sightseeing further afield. Right from the beginning their service was excellent. Rapid, clear communication and good information. The rickshaw tour is great. We were 5 or 6 rickshaws in total with running commentary by headset from the guide (whose name... More
