It was exhilarating to cycle through the empty roads of New Delhi in the thin autumn mist. Our guide led us down the leafy avenues and stopped at vantage photography points. The live commentary was extremely informative. Connaught Palace was marvellous in the early morning light. We cycled past India Gate and took the incline to Raisina Hill and the views were a lot different from the chaos of the Delhi we experience everyday. We spent quite a while on the steps of Agrasen ki Baoli and chatted with the washer-men at Dhobi Ghat. The irresistible array of sweetmeats at Bengali Sweet House was the cherry of top!
Fit for beginners, this is mostly a sight-seeing tour but with a twist! First, the exploration is on bicycles and second, our guides will give you a wonderful introduction and share anecdotes and trivia about all the places you visit. Besides, the tour takes you to some of New Delhi's secret vantage points for photography. Experience a calmer, quieter Delhi as you cycle along tree-lined avenues, up Rajpath and to the top of Raisina Hill for a view of the city rosy in the glow of an early morning sun. Explore Agrasen ki Baoli and learn about life in Dhobi Ghat and the future of this business. The tour ends with a sumptuous breakfast at Bengali Sweet House.
