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.

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

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour and the guide in Agra was excellent. I am sure I will be using their services on my... More

We did the Old Delhi Rickshaw tour, and we can't recommend it highly enough. The rickshaws are higher than usual, so you get a great overview from about 2 metres up. You get hooked up with an audio headset so that everyone on the tour (there were two of us in separate rickshaws) can hear the guide. It's all very... More

Totally fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable, this tour makes seeing the sights of Old Delhi as relaxing an experience as it is ever going to be! Guided by the knowledgeable and charming Ritu, highlights were the spice market, an old and dilapidated haveli, and the narrow, bustling alleyways. The audio headset enabled a great running commentary in what is a noisy... More

What a way to navigate the busy, chaotic streets of Old Delhi. The riders ability to negotiate these roads was very professional and the information given by the guide was excellent. The only and best wayt to view these bustling areas. Make this tour a MUST when visiting Delhi.

This is the second rickshaw tour I've taken with When in India. This time the Mumtaz Mahal private tour. It was just as enjoyable as the group tour and Ritu, owner and guide, deserves a special mention. Not only is she an excellent guide, she's a genuinely nice and lovely person. The ratings speak for themselves.

We can hardly imagine doing the tour of Old Delhi in a more relaxing and efficient way. Very friendly personnel and tour guides. They take care of your comfort and safety during the complete tour. The absolute highlight for us was the visit of the Spice market. We were amazed how our ricksha driver was able to get us through... More

If you are looking for a full-immersion experience of Old Delhi that's truly unforgettable... this is the only way to go. From start (making reservations online... so easy) to finish (being escorted to our waiting cab in a sea of people), "When In India" is a seamless class act. It's a small company that is a labor of love of... More

The tour was well planned and organised including the highlights of this part of Delhi. It was fun to try the rickshaws though some of the roads we got into were too narrow. There were some yummy snacks provided at the end of the tour and that was very enjoyable! I believe this tour is one of the best ways... More
