Hi mylot friends, Blatantly it is interesting to catch the tour on Rickshaw. Still there are individuals who wish to ride on Rickshaws in this advanced period through the roads of old Delhi. The aforementioned Rickshaw's are open, having pad seats with cinchs incorporating medical aid case. The doormen are with uniform and there is room under Rickshaw to keep the baggage, look like brilliant to the tourists. Not quick or abate they will encounter with typical and unvarying speed , the voyagers can watch around the avenues, and they could probably stop where ever they wish to shop. Tourists can visit Mosques, Temples around the slender lanes of Chandini Chowk and likewise visit old landmarks. Tourists can revel in the ride with consuming snacks like Parathas, Kulchas and Jelebis good to go in on stalls of adorned shops. Provided that they wish they are able to encounter the 150 old Structural engineering of Moghal's in Old Haveli. 400 years back float through strait paths of Chandini chowk. Blatantly it is amazing background, These Rikshaw tours are worked by “when in India Tours”. There are diverse bundles running from rupees 1800.00. The complete of Shajahan tour will take 150 to 180 moments and will prices rupees 2500.00

Are Rickshaws known as trishaws too? In my country, Malaysia we commonly called it trishaws. It is a three wheeler, two infront and one behind or in some places one infront and two behind. I suppose the design of the trishaw varies from place to place. As I remembered when I was living in good old Malacca as a kid I travelled to school in a trishaw. During that time in the 1960s it was a popular means of transport and it was cheap. Nowadays trishaws are used as tourist attraction. Like you mentioned it is easier to travel and look at places where tourists love to visit places of interest. Malacca is an historical place once ruled by the Portugese. Like India, Malaya was once ruled by the British too. So we have something in common eh? Trishaws here are very much improved, upgraded and decorated with artificial flowers etc. They even vote for the most beautiful trishaw. I am not sure if it is a yearly event lol...

Hi Rooftop, Thanks for the response, your trishaws and our Rickshaws are same but our driver in front and customers at back. There are two types of Rickshaws are there one is with upper seats and another is lower seats. Upper seat Rickshaws are convenient to travel for the customers, now Auto Rickshaws are entered in the market and Rickshaws are vanishing day by day have a nice day.

I remember travelling in Rikshaw when I was a kid. But this happened in Chennai. I still wonder how they handle our weight. I remember watching some old hindi movies in which fat ladies are drawn by thin rikshaw men. I always pity them!

Hi Padu, Thanks for the response, yes I too was remembered I have ride cycle Rickshaws from Central station to Parrys corner. I think that 25 years back itself Auto Rickshaws enter into the market and Rickshaws are vanishing, but still Rickshaws is their to carry goods from one place to other. Once again that travel company introduced Rickshaw tours in old Delhi, have a nice day.

It would be very interesting for me to take a tour by rickshaw in the roads Old Delhi. I like to see the landmarks and street sights. I know in some parts of Asia rickshaws can be seen. I rode in a rickshaw in Malaysia's Penang Island. India is on my travel wish list for the future. I would fly into Delhi Airport and stay in Delhi for a few days. During my time there I think I might go on a rickshaw tour. It would be lovely to catch a train to Agra after that to see Machu Picchu. I would like to take trains down past Mumbai to the beaches between Goa and Kerala.

That is a really good income for the Indians I am assuming as it works out to $47 for 3 hours(far above min wage in the US!). I am not sure if I would like a tour that long knowing that I am causing hard work on another(even though I am paying for it). I would say that perhaps a quick 15 minute ride would do the trick and cure my excitement and have a few pictures taken.

Hi Teamcholent, Thanks for the response, there are several local tour ranging from 45 dollars to 75 dollars. It is easy to move on the narrow roads of old city of Delhi, watching the stalls and its contents decorated on the shops. For Indian the tour may be some what costly when compare to the western people, have a nice day.
