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.

Heard a lot of the tour and much through the trip advisor. Loved every time spent and the experience of the historic town. The entire area is very chaotic, but we could enjoy everything sitting on our comfortable pedicabs. It was a great experience to see, feel and smell this part of Delhi – A must visit place and well organised by the two young ladies who were very enthusiastic and lively ladies

We had the best experience of the old city with a charming lady Ritu! She has a great personality and we loved all that she had to say about the history and culture of India. It was good information and very pleasant. We had a wonderful time. She took us to places that I'm sure we would never have found out had we not gone on the tour. Although it rained on us, she was prepared and brought us rain ponchos. The drivers were efficient and helpful as well. A good time and great management. Great work and highly recommended tours.

PS: The food was to die for!

All in all, this was a great tour. I had so much fun and I also met some wonderful people on the tour. Old Delhi is a very different city, seems a little difficult to take in initially, but by the end of this tour, you will love it. This tour is an excellent way to see Old Delhi, discover the less touristy places to visit/eat and simply get to know the place better. Loved the old mansion in the end; it was a good experience and the best thing I did in India. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see and love Delhi intimately! Thanks to my great guide and the whole team, I had a exceptional time.

A pleasant introduction to India, even if you have been to Delhi before, you would find this tour intriguing. We did their morning tour that starts early morning at 9 am. Taruna, our guide was knowledgeable, supportive and accommodating to the group. This tour was an outstanding start to our Indian trip, which gave us a first-rate orientation to the culture and people and was definitely the highlights of our Indian vacation. We also went to an old mansion and were shown a fascinating gallery that strengthened our understanding of the Indian History.




Almost everything was covered on the tour from religion, practices, monuments and food. A mesmerizing tour of this captivating land – India.

What a great way to start our Indian adventure. We did a private tour of Old Delhi. Ritu was very informative, smart and friendly. She seemed to know a lot about everything. The best part was the visit to the old street with old mansions, it was awesome. Her colleague Truna gave us a thorough history of Delhi, pointing out old architecture, temples, statues, historic building, old restaurants, everything. What lovely guides, excellent drivers and a prefect tour. Great fun, we highly recommend the tour, well done.
