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.

We took 3 children, 10, 8 and 6 on this tour and they loved it! The Mosque was superb, but for the children it was the thrill of the rickshaw ride, tremendous bumps, the odd actual crash, and being amongst so much life and colour and scents. They felt very professional wearing the listening device, and the breaks at the... More

We took the day trip to Agra to see the Taj, which was terrific. It is quite a long drive and we were unimpressed with the driver, who, while courteous and professional, was slow in getting there. This resulted in our time being cut short so we were a little disappointed but the time we spent there and the local... More

The rickshaw ride in Old Delhi is a fun and unique experience. The energy of the guide and drivers is commendable. Took their 3 hour private afternoon tour with Niraj and it was very informative and fun. Highly recommend using them for all your touring need.

The Oberoi Hotel in New Delhi arranged a private tour of Old Delhi and we could not have been happier with our experience. We had the opportunity to really see, smell, hear and enjoy the exciting places of Old Delhi. We saw temples, shops, the spice market and enjoyed a lunch at an authentic Old Delhi restaurant. Our rickshaw driver... More

I absolutely enjoyed my tour. Taruna organised a tour to specifically meet my needs. I did Old Dehli, New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Haridwar & Rishikesh. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Travelling solo & feeling a little nervous Taruna made certain I felt safe. She came and met me in person & showed me around some of her favourite places. It... More

This was our first activity coming into India. After convincing some random TukTuk driver we did not want a tour from him we already had one lined up we easily spotted the red When In India tour shirts across the street from the Red Fort. Our group was only 6 people (4 rickshaws with 1 guide in training) so we... More
