  • Old Delhi Cycling Tour

    The Shah Jahan Tour 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 forest, thick with traditional architecture typical of Shah Jahan’s time, you will find yourself in a Delhi of another time. You'll also see the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, the Spice Market and tranquil Civil Lines, the former British colonial area that forms a sharp contrast to hectic Old Delhi.
