A must do in Delhi for anyone who knows to ride a cycle. The guide Mr.Tenzing is knowledgeable, friendly, humorous and kind. He takes you through the lanes of Old Delhi, crossing old Havelis each coming with its own history. If you want to explore Old Delhi, this is what you need to do - do it solo or with a group, it's a memorable experience.

Sep 2021 • Couples
Tenzin and Vishnu coordinated the trip so well. We were given clear instructions from the start that allowed us to navigate the narrow lanes and main roads safely.

What I particularly enjoyed was the ease with which the route was planned. The old city has maze like lanes but Tenzin knew the insider routes and gave us a good snapshot of life around the old town area. Havelis, famous food joints, early morning activities in a local park and a visit to the wholesale spice center were the highlights of our tour. We had a four hour ride through the old city and ended it with some delicious puri at a well known local joint.

Thank you for the fun tour, felt like we were travelling with a bunch of friends.

I loved every minute of it and recommend to do this tour to everyone. Tenzin and Raju were great guides, they took good care of us, showed us great places and despite being in Old Delhi on a bike I never felt lost or uncomfortable. Food and tea was also delicious!

Great introduction
Mar 2020
We took this bicycle ride as our very first outing in Delhi. So glad we did! The early start gave an insight to Old Delhi waking to the day. Because the frenzy of the market doesn’t start till late morning we had room to ride. We felt safe and learnt heaps to orientate ourselves to visiting a culture quite different to our own. With Covid 19 beginning it’s hold we were grateful for our friendly Guides.

Loved every minute
Without a guide you would never experience the intricate maze of lane ways through Old Delhi either by foot or by bike. To experience the streets waking up, small business starting the day with food & chai, prayers over the loud speaker, the locals going about their daily lives will be something I’ll treasure. Tenzin was a fabulous guide with stories to entertain us and a passion for us to understand what it’s like to live in Old Delhi. As a solo female traveler I felt safe with my group at all times. The tour gave me the confidence to visit the spice market the next day as it was closed on Sunday. The perfume of spice and rose in the air was quite beautiful. I loved every minute of this tour and will definitely book again.
