We were recommended this tour by a local resident and it is the best thing we did in India (bar a few of the forts we stayed in in Rajasthan). You have to be there at 6.45 am as otherwise the streets are impassable and frankly it gets too hot.
You see life in all its glory and poverty. You see the Spice Market where the chaps who carry unimaginable weights on their backs still are not used to the clouds of spice in the air. They cough and splutter their way up the bannister-less stairs.
You meet dogs, sights and smells you never imagined. But people still wave and smile. We were amazed and delighted.
The guides are informative and friendly. We did tip - I don't know if it's necessary.
The best tour is the Shah Jahan tour of the backstreets Old Delhi. Do your best to get on that one.
Thank you DelhiByCycle - brilliant, essential experience.
