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:)

My wife and I took a rickshaw ride after visited the Jama Masjid Mosque during a tour of Delhi. Our guide made sure that we used a reputable one. You will be expected to give a 100 Rupee tip at the end of your journey, which lasts about 20 – 30 minutes. Frankly, the drivers earn this, as they have... More

We picked up a rickshaw drive by a young man with pure "manpower"... Pedals, not motorized. He took us through the very crowded streets giving us a Birdseye view of all the hustle and bustle.....past old Budist and Hindu Temples...and a wide array of shops of all varieties. We went down various alleys that featured shoe sellers for a couple... More

Well we never imagined we would ride a Rickshaw in Old Town Delhi but we did and it was a great event. How the Rickshaw weaves in and out and through the traffic is just amazing and without being hit or missing another vehicle by millimetres was a challenge. Drivers do not seem to look out it is away of... More

I have been born and brought up in Old Delhi so no one better than me can know how valuable these rickshaws are to the residents here. The time taken to reach your destination is not counted by Kms here but the amount of traffic you will have to face, so taking your own vehicle is a big no no.... More

I think it's the best way to see, fell and experience Old Delhi. I don't think i would decide to take this ride if it wasn't for my guide who actually took it with me. it was a very wise decision. We started our ride and after some time we got off and went on foot to see the bazar.... More

A took a bicycle rickshaw ride on a Friday late morning through the market area where many goats were being sold for Eid. We proceeded through narrow alleyways crowded with shoppers, shopkeepers, motorcycles, rickshaws and animals. What an adventure! It provides a way to experience Old Delhi with all five senses!

Being out int he crazy Delhi traffic in one of these is worth it, if for no other reason than getting your heart going. It helps you feel more apart of the city to ride in one out in the middle of things.

We absolutely loved our Old Delhi rickshaw ride with Akbar. He is very experienced, an person and incredibly trustworthy Akbar: +91 98-91-462125 - best to txt or call. Akbar took us on a local tour of Old Delhi and showed us places we would have never seen alone. It is absolute madness with some of the crowds and congestion you... More

Taking a rickshaw through Old Delhi is probably one of the most fun activities in the city, It is like been in a National geographic adventure. Little streets filled with different vendors and shops, lost of people and sights and of course the drivers are the best..going with a guide to negotiate the price it is always helpful..
