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 were staying at the Oberoi New Delhi, and they arranged a tour for us through this company. I highly recommend When India Tours. The rickshaw ride with stops along the way lasted a full three hours; however it was so interesting the time just flew by. It's a great way to get an in-depth view of life in Old... More

I visited New Delhi in March 2015 and doing the guided tour with "When in India tours" was my only sight seeing activity in the city. The guide was very friendly and informative during the three hour tour. We stopped by the biggest mosque in New Delhi, the spice market and an old mansion. Optional was a traditional restaurant visit,... More

What a wonderful way to see Old Delhi! We were greeted by Ritu and her team of well-presented rickshaw drivers. An earphone allowed us to hear the very interesting commentary of what we were seeing. We were taken to temples, spice markets, the shopping souks and much, much more. A must do for anyone visiting Delhi.

I just returned from an 8 night Golden Triangle tour that I organized using When in India Tours and everything was perfect. The driver was great, always on time and helpful, the guides in each city were professional and interesting and the rickshaw ride in Old Delhi was a highlight of the trip. I communicated with Taruna for months while... More

Our travel planner recommended the tour of Old Delhi. I had not seen Old Delhi on my last visit so I was eager to see it. It was an amazing experience. Whisking in and out of the crowded energy of the area, was definitely a memorable experience. Being able to see the Old Delhi market up close was a real... More

When In India Tours arranged a private Golden Triangle tour for my adult daughter and me. Starting from Delhi, we spent two nights in Agra, two in Jaipur, and ended back in Delhi with a live Bollywood show. From the outset,Taruna was very attentive and helpful to arrange a tour that was interesting, fun, and just at the right pace.... More

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.
