Had my own trepidation about this but we eventually did iut. 2 adults, 15 and 10yo. 45-60min ride through the old city. Not for the faint hearted but the "drivers" knew exactly what to do and how to handle the crowds. One very memorable experience in India. Both adults and children agreed it was a must!

After visiting the Jama Masjid,walk down the stairs and take a bicycle rickshaw ride through the market. You can experience the sights and sounds of the narrow streets teeming with shops, shoppers and every sort of transport.

The ride gave a reasonable overview of what the market district is like. Getting through the foot and other traffic is an eye-opener. I think looking around on foot would be more useful but between the traffic and endless hawking, it would be a challenge. I tend to prefer street-level experiences but simple strolling would not be easy or relaxing.

We did our rickshaw tour with Akbar, an independent tour guide who has been showing people the sights, sounds, and tastes of Delhi for the past 15 years. Because of a delayed flight, we only had a couple of hours with him, and within that time we visited a temple, the sliver, wedding, gold, and spice markets and the mosque.... More

Did a rickshaw ride back to the mosque and spending 2 hours strolling through the alley ways of Old Delhi. Tried some street vendor food eg. samosas sweets etc cooked fresh as right in front of us. The sounds and smells of Old Delhi could be a bit overpowering especially to travellers not used to Asian lifestyles, however, a slow... More

This is a unique experience to try while in New Delhi. The rickshaw driver took us through the market and it gave a feel for the local atmosphere and everyday life. We had so many near miss collisions with people, bikes, motorcycles, rickshaws and cars. Somehow we never hit anything. The market is extremely busy.

It's just a rickshaw ride in some narrow market, the good thing is that it doesn't need any physical effort, but you can't see/buy anything because you're not in control of the tour.

I realize that a rickshaw tour through Old Delhi is a major attraction for visitors but I submit it is highly overrated. The narrow, highly congested streets and alleys, lined with shops, can be replicated in numerous cities and towns throughout India and Asia. For the first-time visitor, it is an eye-opener, I concede but not for others. These days... More

If you want to see Old Delhi but don't want to do it on your own Akbar and his team are the way to do it. Akbar is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and careful. His tour I highly recommended.

Akbar is a very kind and lovely local to meet:) He showed us around whole Old Delhi with all its hidden sights and local knowledge - we were so happy we found him among many untrustworthy offers - I would recommend his service to anyone:)
