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.

Incredible HELP from the tourist group Exotic Adventures in New Delhi...Exploring the cultural,historical,architectural and archeological matrix of fragrances,colours,sights Delhi,Agra (Taj Mahal),Mathura,Vrndavan,Jaipur and the other treasures,spreading out through Rajasthan,can be daunting and exhausting.Especially at this time of the season,in 40 plus degree,middle of the day heat.so many logistically sensitive factors to organise,luckily my family stumbled onto one of Delhi's tourist organisers...

I learned about this tour through the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. At the last minute, my friend and I decided to take the tour, literally calling to book the day before. Even though the tour was full, When in India were able to make arrangements for an extra driver to bring us along, which was great! The 1/2 day Old... More

My tour with When In India was an obvious highlight of my experience in India. I never thought I'd be able to cruise around the most crowded sections of one of the most crowded cities, worry free, because I trusted our bicycle-rickshaw driver so much. He was friendly, funny, and smart. The descriptions of sights through our headsets was pretty... More

I loved this tour! We were able to get out at certain stops and experience things on our own. The tour guides were so nice and knowledgeable. I loved that we were in the bike rickshaws because we were really able to experience the city, much more than if we had been in a bus. Overall I definitely recommend it!

It was an incredible adventure!! We went with 24 other and, we were surprised by the professionalism and the dedication this company put towards these tours. We were offered free water bottles, and after about 40 minutes of tour we stop at a temple to have lunch. My driver was very nice. We all had little radios so we could... More

The students said, “I love this experience; it taught me a lot socially, academically and as a global citizen; I’m glad I did it:)" The students especially appreciated their willingness to share their own life’s story with them and to share the Old Delhi that they clearly love – it had a huge impact on the way they view their...

I had been planning this for awhile for a group of 12 and that was no joke. Taruna, was very helpful and there it began. On the day, Ritu took over and kept us keen all the way.Keeping 12 people on the move was a task in it's self. Ritu's passion for Old Delhi was very obvious, she was so... More

My wife and I experienced a three and a half hour tour of Old Delhi in a bicycle rickshaw with When In India Tours. The trip was arranged by Go India and it was a total success. Bicycle Rickshaw is the only way to experience Old Delhi propoerly as the streets are extemely narrow and very busy. One Rickshaw takes... More

Our tour with When In India tours was arranged through Oberoi exotic vacations. The tour was 3-3.5 hours and felt as if it was only an hour as it was so exciting and fun!
