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.

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

The bicycle rickshaws let us experience the historic sights, the colors and spice aromas, up close and personal. Using the head sets, one could hear the tour guide clearly. Even our sense of taste was deliciously turned on at a local restaurant.

The rickshaw tour was so much fun! We were on the Mumtaz Mahal tour (private tour) that took about 2-3 hours. We booked it a week early online via When In India official website. The organization of the tour was very efficient, all emails and communication were quickly responded. Ritu was very helpful in booking and arranging the transportation to/from... More

The rickshaw tour of Old Delhi was excellent! We saw the heart of the old city at ground level, and our guide listened to our interests and adapted the tour to accommodate them. We saw the key temples and got to visit the spice market where we purchased spices and tea. Then, we had an excellent lunch at a place... More

We did the special Shah Jahan Tour and it was impressive. New Delhi is much like any other metropolitan city but it has some old monuments that are very impressive. Old Delhi was what we enjoyed the most. I learned a tremendous amount about the Indian history, practices and belief system that enhanced my appreciation of India. Further, on this... More

When in India – do not miss this tour! We wanted to see the old city but we were not sure whether we will be seeing everything in the limited time we had.

The team were extremely accommodating and caring. They went above and beyond to assist with everything - including getting us a full refund for accommodation which we incorrectly booked. We were often contacted to ensure that we were safe, happy etc. And the driver was great! We decided to extend our time using the driver and the team helped us... More

We booked a private one day tour to Agra. All went perfectly smooth, despite our booking was quite on shot notice. Taruna was always quick with responses and highly professional - even during the tour she called us several times (!) to make sure everything went acceding to plan. The tour itself was very well organised. Pick-up from the hotel... More

this is a must do in Delhi. The only way to see the old city. It is informative and stimulating. The spice market is a symphony for both the eyes and the nose. The tour guides are the best and will give you an unvarnished opinion of India, Delhi and the Indian view of the world. Our guide Ritu was... More
