What you'll do

You will ride bike with me into the Old Delhi narrow streets to experience the real street life and also stop by famous monuments like Red Fort, Jama Masjid and Chandni Chowk along the way. Experience Delhi like a local with a stop for Chai (Traditional tea) and breakfast at one of the oldest food shop in Old Delhi. We ride early morning to avoid the crowd and crazy traffic. The bicycle helps you with covering more area than walking and takes you into the narrow lanes where bigger vehicles can't go. Old Delhi is full of stories and riding bike into this city is intense and once in a life time experience!
Other things to note
Arrange your own transportation to the meeting point and share your mobile number with us. We may have transport vehicle (car or Rickshaw - Tuk Tuk at an extra cost).

We booked with Tenzin and were not quite sure what to expect. They took their time to make sure all the bikes were appropriately sized and in good condition for our team (which is important as you are riding through busy intersections and need to stop frequently). Tenzin had extensive knowledge and shared great stories and locations with us. He definitely made it fun when it could have been stressful. I felt like he and Raju definitely were keeping us safe and entertained. Would highly recommend.

Sturdy bikes and helmets and a thoughtful friendly guide and his assistant gave me confidence to attack the challenge of the Old Delhi lanes and streets. And it was worth it - historical palaces you would never have found on your own as well as the more famous landmarks and delicious refreshments at regular intervals.

I really did not know what to expect from this experience and many people said I was mad for booking it with the traffic around Delhi. All that’s I can say is that I am so glad that i did. What an amazing experience and such a unique way to immerse yourself into the sights, sounds and smells of the old city. Tenzin made the experience so memorable with personal stories and a wealth of information. The breakfast was superb and a new food for us to try. The Chai was very tasty and recommendations for restaurants set us up for the rest of our trip in Delhi. If you can ride a bike then go on the tour, you wont regret it. The route is easy and the 2 guides (one at the front and one at the back) ensure that everyone’s safety is at the top of the list.........Do something different that will leave you with the most amazing memories.

Great morning! Biked through the streets as they woke up. Saw Old Delhi, the rough, the lovely, the painful. Warmed up with chai in the streets on the chilly, foggy morning as the monkeys hopped above us. Finished with some breakfast and a digestive ride back to the starting point. Great tour. Great insights. Great hosts. Thanks again!

I really enjoyed the whole experience with Tenzin. It was fascinating riding through Old Delhi as the city came alive, and the pace was leisurely enough that you could take in the surroundings as you cycled by. There were plenty of photo opportunities, and the vegetarian breakfast he ordered specially for me was delicious. Tenzin and his team took their responsibility very seriously and I couldn’t have been happier with the entire tour. Thoroughly recommended.
