Fabulous tour
Jan 2020
This was a great experience (clearly the best of our 3 weeks in India). Naresh was very informative, got us where we needed to be and kept things on track. I highly recommend WII.

Excellent and informative tour
Mar 2020 • Couples
My husband and I enjoyed a rickshaw tour of Old Delhi just before everything closed down. The tour was really interesting and well put together. Our guide Eshita spoke excellent English, was well informed and made sure the tour was tailored to our interests. Our rickshaw driver was very helpful and keen to give us every opportunity to take photographs. A really good tour, I highly recommend it.

Good way to see Old Delhi
Feb 2020
This tour is a great way to explore Old Delhi. Naresh, the tour guide, knows a lot about the city and can transfer his knowledge very well. Old Delhi is very busy en very overwhelming, and this guided tour is a good way to make the most of the experience.

Eshita !!!! Yes, This Tour is a Must if You love Crazy Narrow Lanes & Markets
Feb 2020
We totally enjoyed our rickshaw tour with Eshita as our guide. We originally thought we would wander the lanes of Old Delhi on our own. But then decided to go with WII and Eshita. Great decision. Our tour lasted about 3 hours. The Mosque, the spice markets, the busy crowded narrow streets. Eshita took us to a few street food places. Some amazing Masala tea, excellent lunch spot. Colors, energy, noise, vibrancy - Old Delhi has it all and Eshita was a terrific guide for our morning tour.

This tour of Old Delhi is a must!
Jan 2020
Excellent insite into Old Delhi. I was a bit apprehensive when the taxi dropped us off in Old Delhi, as I had booked this tour through trip advisor back in the UK and had no idea how manic and mad Old Delhi was! Our tour guide, Pratima, was there to meet us, and was very professional as she had all our details to hand and was such a warm and friendly lady. We were given our headphones, and helped into our rickshaw, and throughout the tour Pratima was educating us on every aspect of Old Delhi, from her rickshaw behind us. We could hear her very clearly, even above the sound of the traffic and the horns! The tour was so well organised, and Pratima was more than happy to work the tour around what we wanted to see and what interested us the most. It was amazing - being right in the heart of Old Delhi and to be able to see exactly how people work and function throughout their day. We would never have seen it all had we not gone on this wonderful tour, and expecially with such a great guide. I have to mention our rickshaw driver too - such a nice, calm and interesting man.
Thank you for showing us Old Delhi and for educating us and giving us such a lovely morning. Very hightly recommended tour! If we ever go back to Delhi, we would definitely do this tour again.

Amazing sites of Old Delhi!
Nov 2019
We were blown away on our recent trip to India and our many tours and sites visited. But one of the highlights was our rickshaw tour of Old Delhi with Eshita as our tour guide. It was truly eye-popping fascinating and awesome and highly recommended. We traveled through narrow alleyways to see the hustle bustle of Old Delhi- spice sellers, sari makers, wedding dresses, bangles and jewelry, foods and snacks. It was truly jaw dropping! Eshita shared the history of Delhi and her knowledge of the bazaar and answered all our many questions. We got to visit a chai tea specialist who's been in the same narrow alleyway for over 50 years selling his delicious Masala chai tea. And it was great! It made us feel like we were seeing Old Delhi and experiencing Delhi in an authentic way that will remain one of our most vivid and remarkable vacation memories.

Great Experience
Dec 2019
This was recommended to us by friends who had taken the tour, and we were not disappointed. The center of Old Delhi is crowded and hard to really see on your own, so this tour by rickshaw with headsets is really the best way to see it. For the record, I generally avoid tours and formal tour guides, except when they are really key to making the experience worthwhile, and this is one of those situations.

Experience Old Delhi by Rickshaw
Nov 2019
Upfront: We were booked for a private Rickshaw tour of Old Delhi with "When in India Tours". I can't find that tour - I only find this luxury one, and a group one. Ours was not a group activity but wasn't called luxury and didn't have a free book. So I am not sure if this review applies to Luxury or to group tour as it was neither.

We got one Rickshaw, and the tour guide got another one. He spoke to us while on the rickshaw through audio plugs they gave us at the start which worked well. We had a guide, Saurav, who was extremely knowledgeable and customized our tour. The rickshaw driver was heroic, to bike in those tiny cobble streets for 3 hours! Once we had enough of markets, we skipped the shoe and paper markets, as we also had gone through the spice market already, and he did what we requested: Getting introduced to Sikh religion in an active temple while they were praying was a great experience and the guide really taught us something new about Sikh, despite it not being his religion. The tour started with a famous mosque, and again, the guide knew a lot. Later we had a great view from within the markets up a hidden little building in the spice market. We ended a tour by eating local food in the narrow markets that did not make us sick (we tried to stay away from street food otherwise).
