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 have been to India many times and have had many great experiences. This tour ranks amongst the best. Our guide, Ritu, was very knowledgable and insightful and basically just fun to be with.

I have been to New Delhi many times but can't believe that I have never done this before. The bicycle rickshaw tour in Old Delhi with When In India was the best thing we did in India. We were a group of four with two parents and 13 year old and 10 year old. We were in two rickshaws. Rita... More

We were recommended the WII tour by Indian friends - they were absolutely right! This is the only way to get around and see Old Delhi - no taxi or bus can take you there and a walking tour doesn't cover as much. All with great rickshaw drivers who have great skill in getting around crazy traffic and bottlenecks in... More

We had a great time amidst the sites, smells, and sounds of Old Delhi. We saw much that we did not know was there. The tour's audio system quite effectively allowed everyone in the group to clearly hear the guide. The most memorable part of the tour was going through the wedding shopping street.

My first experience, and my introduction to Delhi, was on the 3-hour rickshaw tour. It was excellent! Our guide was superb, and the rickshaw drivers could not have been more helpful/polite/careful. Being immersed in the chaotic life of Old Delhi, through a combination of rickshaw rides and guided walks, was exhilarating, educational and entertaining. We stopped for lunch with our... More

After a 30 hour expedition to get to Delhi, a quick 5 hour nap, and a hearty Indian breakfast, we traveled down to the Red Fort to pick up our Old Delhi rickshaw tour. Great communication from their office, our guide was very good, and our driver was very cautious and precise. Chandni Chowk was our main destination and the... More

When in India Tours organized an excellent Golden Triangle tour for my family, including our two-year-old son. Communication before the tour was great, always giving full details and customizing every aspect of the tour. We felt free to pick and choose what we wanted to do, without any pressure. They were very helpful in addressing concerns about traveling with a... More

My boyfriend and I booked the Old Delhi Rickshaw tour and even though we made the request at the very last minute, we were accommodated with ease. The tour itself was colourful, varied and highly enjoyable; from the chaotic markets to the eerily quiet ruins in the middle of the city Ritu provided us with so much in depth knowledge.... More

My 8 year old daughter and I explored Old Delhi in this fashion. A wireless microphone system for every passenger allowed our sharp guide to comment on fixtures of the neighborhood while we were gliding through a swarm of activity.

My husband and I used Taruna and her team for our recent Golden Triangle tour. We had a million questions that Taruna answered with patience every time. Each detail was taken care of (including booking a hotel for us when I forgot), and the tour was thoughtfully put together. Our daily tour guides were interesting, informative, and easy, to understand,... More
