Fascinating, cool and quiet morning walk of discovery through the back laneways and bazaars of the Old City. Mr Davinder was my extraordinary guide, revealing exquisite places that could never be otherwise known or found. Finished with the best kulcha breakfast. Not to be missed.

We were taken around by a young lady who was a perfect guide. Prepare yourself for some interesting sights but well worth the effort.

Keep your fingers crossed till the arrival of the guide (who collects the fee of Rs 25/- and distributes the brochures) for this tour as there was no sign of any activity - no ticket window etc. and the locals, mostly news paper vendors inside the Town Hall boundary did not have any clue. The best way to explore the... More

While listing down the things to do in Amritsar, we learnt about a Amritsar Heritage Walk supported by Punjab Heritage and Tourism Promotion Board. We couldn’t think of a better way to discover the holy city than learning about its rich heritage. The walk is organised once daily (From March to November) and twice a day (December to February) for... More

Mr Davinder Singh's tour was the highlight of our weekend in Amritsar. We only had a Saturday morning available, so we were fortunate to secure him as our private guide. Davinders' tour was one of the best I have experienced (I have lived in India for the past 3 years and done many Heritage walks). Loved hearing his passion about... More

Amritsar is a very old city. Its journey from 1564 (approx) when fourth Sikh Guru Ram Das laid foundation of the city to only sikh emperor Maharaja Ranjit Singh to British rule, has left on its wake a rich and diverse cultural repository among the bylanes and locations spread across the city. Tourists normally visit two/ three main attractions like... More

He was the most knowledgeable you can imagine. Just brilliant. Give it a try even if you are not a big history fan. You will see things in the city that are totally hidden. Worth it !

Definitely don't pay to do this unless you really want a guide. We couldn't find our guide to do it so just followed the signs dotted throughout the city and the hoards of people and were able to see all the sites, all of which have information points. But definitely do this, but bring water- it's long enough in the... More

I arrived for the tour start time of 8am, but no one was there and no signs indicating why. On returning to my hostel the hostel owner got in touch, and found the guide was showing around VIPs. Very unprofessional. I attached to this truncated VIP for free later, but sadly the tour itself was unimpressive, with little of interest... More
