Absorb the city’s mellow atmosphere before it comes alive for the day and watch early-bird locals go about their business. Cycle the narrow lanes and stop to see landmarks that encapsulate Old Delhi’s 400-year history. Take in the 17th-century Jama Masjid mosque and admire the Red Fort, the red-sandstone fortress-palace with walls rising above the old quarter. Pedal into Chandni Chowk, one of Delhi’s oldest markets, to experience its early bustle, and view the colorfully decorated shops and vividly dressed locals.

4 of us booked the Old Delhi tour with Delhi by bike before leaving the UK as we only had one morning in the city. The communication from DBB was very good, they were quick to confirm our booking and sent clear instructions for the rendezvous point.

We were met at the arranged time and introduced to our 2 guides. After our bike saddles and helmets we're adjusted to suit we were given a safety talk before heading off into the warren like lanes and alleyways of Old Delhi.

Our lead guide, Tenzin, stopped at many interesting sights along the way giving explanations about the sights and answering any questions we had. Tenzin showed a genuine enthusiasm for sharing his knowledge of the city, which was excellent and his English was very good.

Towards the end of the tour we stopped at small and very popular local breakfast eatery for puri and daal, which was delicious.

Overall the tour was around 3 and a half hours long. It was by no means strenuous but a reasonable level of bikes control was needed when threading our way through the narrow alleyways and weaving through the pedestrians.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Delhi as you will get to see many sights that may otherwise be missed.

We both loved this tour—Tenzin was a fantastic and laid back host who gave us an authentic look at Delhi as it was waking up, with lots of great stories about the people of this city. He also showed us amazing hidden spots we never would have discovered on our own, paired with plenty of context and history. We highly, highly recommend taking this tour!

We really appreciated his authenticity—as a Tibetan living in India, he has a bit of an outsider perspective and more importantly has no ulterior motives other than to give you a good tour. We were frustrated with how often other India tours are constantly looking to upsell you or get commissions with vendors they take you to—this was not the case with Tenzin. He and his colleague Vishnu were friendly, honest, and lovely to talk to—we wish we could have spent more time hanging out with them!

Tenzin also gave great recommendations for restaurants to try and places to visit—he really enhanced our stay at Delhi and we’re so grateful we took this tour!

Having visited Delhi from the USA at least 4 separate times and visited all of the major tourist sites, I can certainly say I never saw the real Delhi as vividly as I did on the Old Delhi Bike Tour. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but highly recommend for any visitor who wants to really see a more authentic side of the city and it’s history. Will definitely book again next time I’m in Delhi!

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.

Tenzin is an excellent guide, he makes you feel very safe and has lots of knowledge about the area. A bike tour is a fabulous way to see Old Delhi. We stopped for coffee and then breakfast, trying poora for the first time which was delicious. The coffee was excellent too and a great experience. We stopped for photos along the way and saw just about all the sights - Jami Masjid, Chandni Chowk, spice market, Red Fort and the railway station! We would highly recommend Tenzin and his colleague Raju, definitely one not to miss. Thank you

Amazing bike tour.
Excellent way to see the everyday life of Old Delhi.
Last time I rode a bike was 20 years ago but managed to do this quite comfortably.
Take a backpack as baskets in previous photos are no longer available.
Our guide was so patient and funny, ensured we were comfortable and felt safe at all times.
We will definitely book more tours when we come back.

I don’t know where to start. This was so out of my comfort zone and I loved every minute of it. I’m not a strong bike rider and am 65 so wasn’t sure how I would do. Tenzin and Raju took such good care of me. It turned out I was the only person on the ride. It was fascinating to tour the alley ways and side streets watching the city come to life. Stops for coffee, breakfast, chai and sweets were all included. They chose very carefully where you eat. It was all delicious. Tenzin is very knowledgeable about the city and stops along the way to point out interesting spots and tells you the history of same. I never once felt unsafe despite my wobbly bike riding. Near misses were the norm but everyone watches out for each other and the chaos works. I would highly recommend this tour or any tour offered by this company. I’m from Canada and this is my first trip to India. Take this tour, you will not be disappointed. Barb T.

The delhi bike tour was absolutely amazing and a great way to experience the city in a different way than usual. We got to experience the city waking up and had an amazing local breakfast experience! We also got to be apart of the crazy traffic in Delhi (which you have to be prepared for).
I recommend this tour for everyone who wants a different view of Delhi and experience the city by bike.

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.

We had a marvelous morning with Tenzin. So special to cycle through old Delhi with Tenzin. He knows every little corner and you learn about little and big things hoe they work and why they work like this. You feel really safe with him and his sweet helper Malu. It was unforgettable and gets you thinking about your own life. For us dutch the cycling is no problem. What you will see is not for the light hearted. Our advise: book it!
