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.

Booked this for the day I arrived in India. The combination of riding in the rickshaw and walking was just right to keep me going through the jet lag. Duration at each of the stops and the narration along the way was perfect. There were 5 rickshaws on our tour, but with headsets everyone was able to hear about each... More

This is my first review of When in India- my second one will be after our trip at the end of the year. I have, infact, never written a review BEFORE I visited a country or before I've experienced the tour. But in this case, and after having traveled to many countries, I had to make an exception- When in... More

Took this tour one early morning during a free day in Delhi. I can't say I know much about the city, but Ritu was an amazing guide, knew what to point out, where to take the best pictures, and everything else. It was a morning well spent and something I'd recommend to anyone visiting Delhi.

The tour is very well run with a good commentary of the many sights you will see. The only disappointment was the pick up from the hotel. We were charged $30 return and if we had known a local taxi would have been around $6 max. Further to this our driver could not find the hotel or the pick up... More

Definitely the best way to get the real feel of Old Delhi...very well informed and enthusiastic guide who loves her job (rickshaw tour). New Delhi tour was well tailored to our needs with a guide who helped us manage our time well.

Because of the hustle and bustle of any activity in Delhi, knowing what is going on around you is imperative. We have taken several other rickshaw rides in India but this was by far the best and most informative.

We had a wonderful experience with "When in India". Ritu was knowledgeable, organized and friendly - Old Delhi is fascinating and she made it come alive for us. Excellent overall, we will definitely use them again.
