I have been born and brought up in Old Delhi so no one better than me can know how valuable these rickshaws are to the residents here. The time taken to reach your destination is not counted by Kms here but the amount of traffic you will have to face, so taking your own vehicle is a big no no.... More

I think it's the best way to see, fell and experience Old Delhi. I don't think i would decide to take this ride if it wasn't for my guide who actually took it with me. it was a very wise decision. We started our ride and after some time we got off and went on foot to see the bazar.... More

A took a bicycle rickshaw ride on a Friday late morning through the market area where many goats were being sold for Eid. We proceeded through narrow alleyways crowded with shoppers, shopkeepers, motorcycles, rickshaws and animals. What an adventure! It provides a way to experience Old Delhi with all five senses!

Being out int he crazy Delhi traffic in one of these is worth it, if for no other reason than getting your heart going. It helps you feel more apart of the city to ride in one out in the middle of things.

We absolutely loved our Old Delhi rickshaw ride with Akbar. He is very experienced, an person and incredibly trustworthy Akbar: +91 98-91-462125 - best to txt or call. Akbar took us on a local tour of Old Delhi and showed us places we would have never seen alone. It is absolute madness with some of the crowds and congestion you... More

Taking a rickshaw through Old Delhi is probably one of the most fun activities in the city, It is like been in a National geographic adventure. Little streets filled with different vendors and shops, lost of people and sights and of course the drivers are the best..going with a guide to negotiate the price it is always helpful..

We were lucky enough to be accompanied on our sightseeing trip with a colleague who has been to New Delhi many times, and recommended a rickshaw ride through Old Delhi. Our hotel driver took us to a place off the main strip where we had plenty of choices for rickshaws (and had to wake up the drivers!). After a quick... More

The cyclist who pulled our rickshaw was tiny but really strong as my husband is no lightweight. We travelled at high speed along the narrow streets and the sights and sounds were amazing. Each side of the road was a variety of small shops selling all sorts, including sweets, ironmongery, textiles, fruit and vegetables. The streets were filled with people,... More

I've been on many tours in many countries and Ritu was possibly the best. Informative. Well organized. Hospitable. Nice person. Highly recommended. Great adventure.

Akbar was such an excellent tour guide, it really felt like he showed us the 'real' India. We went through little markets and found some amazing places that we wouldn't have been able to on our own. Thank you Akbar!!!
