Detailed Itinerary

Cycle Tour In Old Delhi (Shah Jahantour)
This tour name is Shah Jahan Tour it is a classic recipe for an exhilarating glimpse into the life and times of the great Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan and the 1500 acre expanse of his capital – Shahjahanabad. At the time of its construction in the 17th Century, it was arguably, the most prosperous and beautiful city in the world. Today, when you pass through its four hundred year old web of alleys held together with great big meshes of electric cables and infused with the smell of brewing tea and simmering breakfast curry, you see a mind boggling co-existence of the past and the future, competing for your attention.

Emerging from this rainforest, thick with traditional architecture- typical of Shah Jahan’s time, you will find yourself in a Delhi of another time while you also see the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, the Spice Market and tranquil Civil Lines, the former British colonial area as a sharp contrast to hectic Old Delhi.

Highlights: Delite Cinema – Turkman Gate – Chawri Bazar – Fatehpuri Masjid – Spice Market – Madras Colony – Civil Lines (chai break) – Old Delhi railway station – Chandni Chowk – Red Fort (from outside) -Jama Masjid (from outside) – breakfast at Karim’s restaurant – Delite Cinema

Cycle Tour In Old Delhi (Yamuna Tour)
Behind every historical capital, there is a great big river. The route is an ode to this river that has been a silent witness to Delhi’s history and is now a recurrent victim of its excesses. Starting from the little lanes of Shahjahanabad, while the city is still sleepy in its proverbial stocks passing along the magnificently formidable walls of the Red Fort we find ourselves on the meditative quiet banks of the Yamuna at Nigambodh Ghat. A visit to the famous ghats – migratory birds circling above the calm waters – unravels the ritualistic devotion with which the Hindus treat the historic river.

Despite its current struggles with pollution, the Yamuna is a goddess to the eyes of her devotees. Concluding with a memorable view of the Jama Masjid back through the streets of Old Delhi, the Yamuna Route is a true experience in the stimulating contradictions that is India.

Cycle Tour In Old Delhi (Haveli Tour)
In this tour you witness the past and present glory of Old Delhi. The Haveli (=Noblemen’s mansion) tour is a spirited and satiating plunge, straight into the deep-end of Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad). At the peak of Emperor Shah Jahan’s rule, his loyal noblemen (Emirs) controlled the social, cultural and economic affairs of the great metropolis of Shajahanabad from their imposing, fortress-like lavish mansions that were built as ‘earthly reminders of the pleasures of Paradise itself’. Three hundred years of decadence, war, re-building and several regime changes later, the much smaller Havelis of today still manage to preserve a stunningly placid beauty that echoes haunting reminders of a much grander past.

Transporting you to this 17th Century city of decadent Emirs, ruthless Persian invaders, woeful poets, mystical men, masterful artists and forgotten architects who wove dreams into the now crumbling contours of Old Delhi – we recreate for you, a spectacularly evocative experience pieced together through the lives and stories of the people who called these Havelis home.

Cycle Tour In New Delhi (Raj Tour)
The Raj tour is a truly breath-taking ride down Delhi’s more recent history. Starting from the narrow labyrinthine backlanes of Old Delhi, passing through quaint old ‘socialist-style’ quarters of government employees and almost magically landing in the midst of a spectacular view of the Presidential Palace and India Gate encircled by spotless clean, tree-lined wide roads – the Raj Tour is a very stimulating and comprehensive catalogue of the lives of people who make this great capital today.
