This was the highlight of our time in Delhi. It gave us a very close-up view of the life of the residents of this area as well as an insight into their history. Our guide gave us a very nuanced view of the culture, religion and politics of Old Delhi. It contrasted well and helped us understand the tour later that afternoon in "New" Delhi.

My wife and I were on our last day in India after several weeks of work, and I wanted to see Old Delhi but was struggling to find the time. Our eventual guide Ritu proposed an abbreviated version of the 3 hr tour and compressed it into a planed hour and a half, which still felt like a vibrant, immersive three hours in Old Delhi’s markets, Sikh Temple, and old mosque. Ritu was incredibly knowledgeable, the audio headsets allowed her to explain the points of interest while trailing behind out rickshaw in her own buggy, and she made us feel connected to the city for the time she spent with us.

The price
was definitely worth the experience.

We took this tour our first day in India and what an introduction. The rickshaw drivers are experts at navigating the chaotic traffic in Old Delhi and our guide Naresh was simply amazing. The rickshaws allow you to see a lot in a short time and also feel the city up close and personal. You still are on foot a lot and we visited the main mosque, the Sikh temple (where we watched the community kitchen in action and it was really inspiring), the spice market and the main Chouk. We had audio headsets and we loved hearing Naresh's explanations. He did so much more than show us around. Great tour, great intro to the city.

I’m addicted to travelling to incredible India and exploring various regions and cultures. Old Delhi stands as a maze to explore and that should be done the right way! I recommend not doing it on your own, as you’ll miss most of the hidden points. Doing it on a tour would be the recommended way and the best is doing it in a rickshaw tour. We did “When in India Tour” which stands as the best organized comfortable tour of Old Delhi. The guides are knowledgeable, flexible, and well equipped with wireless earphones. We took the private tour to accommodate for our limited time, and informed the guide of our interests.
Whether you enjoy culture, architecture, history, daily life, or photography, you should do this tour. The colors are splendid covering bazars, temples, mosques, and other hidden historical benchmarks. Going through the very narrow crowded lanes of the bazars in such a swift way, really caterd to our requirements. Check my uploaded photos and note that they’re all taken while in the rickshaw.
Do not leave Delhi without experiencing Old Delhi the best way.
Thank you Ritu for making it the highlight of our trip to Delhi.

This is in my opinion the best way to experience the Old Delhi part, bustling and hustling maze of people living, working, selling and moving goods around. It was an exciting tour.

My agent had arranged for a Short ride thru old delhi but I wanted to spend more time. I booked this tour and I must say that this was the best thing I did in my entire vacation. The guide gave excellent commentary thru headsets (not provided earlier by my tour agent) which made all the difference! Their rickshaws were super comfortable and safer in comparison to the one I used before. I not only saw many different places but also understood them well because of the wireless ear pieces. I would suggest that one hour is not enough for this place as it has many interestting places to see and learn. When in India took care of everything including wipes, sanitizer, food samples etc.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Delhi. Our experience with the company, even before arriving in Delhi, was fantastic. I had an email conversation with the highly professional owners, during which we worked out an itinerary that suited our needs and schedule. We took a private "Hidden Gems" tour because we had been to Old Delhi before and we had some specific elements that we wanted to see on our visit. We were not disappointed! We visited the Jain temple and bird hospital, Hindu and Sikh places of worship, the paper and wedding streets and much more. I don't think you can say that you've truly visited Delhi until you've spent time in Old Delhi - it is a very special place. The combination of walking and rickshaw was perfect for us and our guide Manoj definitely knew his way around the area and answered all of our questions very well. We rode in one rickshaw while Manoj rode in a second one behind us, pointing out sites to us through headsets, so that we missed nothing. This is a caring company, where everyone from the drivers to the owners to the guides want you to see the specialness of Old Delhi and its community. I have already recommended When in India to others planning a visit to Delhi. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

Ritu was an absolute pleasure to deal with: super efficient; professional and clearly someone with a deep knowledge and passion for India. She tailored a day tour for me around Old Delhi which, for those of you who love to know the local stories and history, places to shop, eat etc, was one of the best experiences I have had. It was really fun to ride through such a bustling city in a rickshaw but also, very comfortable seat and bottled water. A really memorable day for me and I couldn't recommend this company or Ritu more highly.

Though I have visited New Delhi several times I have never toured Old Delhi or Chandni Chowk due to the fear of traffic, pickpocketers, unfamiliarity. This time I decided to do it with family and I am glad I did it with WII. Our guide Ritu and the rickshaw drivers were very professional and made us feel at ease in the congested and chaotic streets of Old Delhi and Chandni Chowk. The place it self is amazing - excellent shopping, food :) and colorful sights. Ritu took us inside Gurudwara Sis Ganj and organized a food tasting at her favorite place which was an added bonus. Recommend WII and the rickshaw tour to anyone visiting Delhi first time.
