Got the chance to meet some really friendly people on this trip and we had a nice time going all around Old Delhi with our friends. Cycling tour started early morning and we cycled to ghats of Yamuna river. We also indulge in boat ride and seen a church. At the end of the trip we had nice breakfast.
