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.

This was an outstanding experience, chosen based on other tripadvisor notes. Wee held our breath that it would be "ok" and we should not have worried at all. Ruti runs the most professional tour, thinks about all of your needs and protections. Her drivers respect her and are well trained to provide customer service. When standing on the walk to... More

Thank you, Ritu! Your tour was excellent. Me and my 6-years old felt treated very personally and well. And your way of explaining India and things and history was clear to understand, intelligent and interesting. Actually, I think you are one of the best tour guides I have met during the years and I have been on lot of tours... More

This tour what everything I wanted in a rickshaw tour of the crowded streets of Old Delhi. The sights, sounds and smells were Amazing! Ritu was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable, and did a great job keeping my 9 and 12 year old daughters engaged. Every tour guest was given a personal sound system with ear piece, so... More

The tour of Old Delhi, led by Ritu of When In India, was a lot of fun. We were a little reluctant to visit Chandni Chowk because we knew it would be very crowded but the rickshaws enable visitors to see the old city and its various bazaars up close, without being swallowed up by the throng of people. We... More

This tour is fantastic, I can't recommend it highly enough. I went last month whilst on a trip visiting Delhi and Rajasthan. I wanted to get a picture of the real Delhi, beyond the well known tourist route, and exploring the backstreets on this rickshaw tour was the perfect way. I loved every minute of it, winding our way down... More

On an extended trip to India our travel consultant booked this tour for us. We did their morning half day rickshaw ride and it was – a LOT to see and absorb. The guide Teruna was well versed with the old city and did an outstanding job of taking us through this action-packed city. The city was glowing in preparation... More

I highly recommend When in India Tours. I recently went to India for a friend's wedding and stopped over in Delhi for a day to explore the city and I could not be much happier to have chosen their service. They really exceeded my expectations.

This is the perfect way to see this part of delhi. It is thrilling to go inside the bustling sreets on pedicabs. Walking can be difficult here as the streets are too crowded. Food is something you should not miss at any cost. Go ahead and enjoy a different aspect of the city and induldge in the colors and chaos... More
