    Top-notch Service
    This was my favorite tour in India (I've been here for three weeks as an American tourist, and I've toured several different cities at this point)! Tornos does it right -- they provide a wealth of information, water bottles, very nice car, and friendly service. My guide, Cyrus, was very friendly and helpful! It was a very enjoyable tour.

    Lucknow must
    We had a seriously great day with our guide Narayan. He created the perfect custom itinerary for us - The Residency, Imambara & Labyrinth, Market and Old Town, plus lovely lunch and a great Chikan shop - and helped come up with a solution for our smaller budget - travelling around by rickshaw instead of air conditioned car. He was supremely knowledgable, really helped us understand the city and we had so much fun spending time with him. One of the highlights of our trip to India, and can’t recommend highly enough!

    Wonderful guidance in Lucknow
    I highly recommend Tornos if you are visiting Lucknow. Our guide Narayan and our driver Ali were fantastic. The two day visit allowed us to discover many aspects of the city (main monuments, historical background, religious aspects and also street food!). Visiting the city with a very knowledgeable guide added a lot to the experience. Already looking forward to coming back.

    Had a great Day
    I booked this tour because I wanted to see Lucknow and obviously Agra but couldn't make both work easily. This was a great day. I was picked up early from my hotel and driven to lucknow where we picked up the guide and spent the day exploring Taj Mahal and Agra Forte. They provided me with snacks and water and made sure I was comfortable at all times. My driver was awesome, pointing out cool and interesting things along the drive. I even felt comfortable enough to have a nap both on the way there and way home.

    Lucknow tour
    I very much enjoyed this tour. The company, Tounos was very professional, as were their staff. My guide, Ravi, was really great and a wealth of information. Could not have been better. My surprise was the large extent of impressive architecture in the city and the interest of the Residency ruins from 1856. So a full tour that has added much to my knowledge. Thank you Ravi.

    Tornos are excellent
    I was recently in Lucknow where I had asked Tornos to come up with a tailor-made tour. My friend and I were particularly interested in the chikan embroidery so wanted to visit SEWA where you can see items being stitched as well as buy the beautiful products. Tornos took on board our interests and put together a magnificent 2 day programme covering general sight-seeing, as well as food and heritage interests in addition to the handicrafts. We were looked after by the wonderful Cyrus who couldn't have been more helpful and incorporated every request we made. He was a mine of information and made the perfect our guide. Thank you Tornos.

    Tornos - The Tour Company all the rest should be like.
    This is my 6th day tour in India and was amazed by the professionalism of this company. Firstly they called me on the day before to confirm the time and itinerary, not me having to chase them. Upon being picked up, they presented me with a Welcome Bag which was full of goodies which was on top of the selection in the back of the car.The staff were pleasant, charming and courteous but what amazed me was the depth of knowledge that Ravi had. Knowing a bit about the Murgal times, Ravi immediately answered all my questions in full and without having to look up Wiki like other tour operators have done. Not only was the trip great but this is the first time I have not been hassled by an Indian service provider to write a review. I wrote this because I wanted to !!! Not only is this trip total value for money, it is well presented and thoroughly informative. I recommend this trip and wish all other Indian tour companies would become like them.

    Food on the move
    Before we came on our first visit to India we were told to be careful of eating street food, but having been on the tour with Cyrus there is nothing to worry about. He takes you through different restaurants for each course, with your own cutlery in a bag! It’s not just tasting the delicious food but hearing about their origins as well. Really is a must-do event if you visit Lucknow.

    Tasting the Delights of Lucknow!
    This was a great evening, tasting the famous Adwahi cuisine of Lucknow. It was handled wonderfully and efficiently by Tornos, and the food was absolutely delicious. Our guide was knowledgable and passionate about the food, and came equipped with mineral water and cutlery for us to use in each restaurant. We had been in India for three weeks, so weren't surprised by the cleanliness of street food shops, but even if we hadn't been, Tornos would have put our minds at ease. I highly recommend this tour--and Tornos in general, for all our tourism needs in Lucknow and the surrounding Uttar Pradesh region.

    Indian street food
    My husband and I recently joined our guide Cyrus on a very informative culinary walking tour of the old city area of Lucknow. The food Cyrus chose for us was tasty and reflected the traditional cuisine of old Lucknow. Cyrus explained in detail the origins and cooking methods which we saw first hand in the market place. This is definitely worth doing if you would like to experience authentic Indian street food with a local guide with outstanding knowledge of his subject. We also joined Cyrus for a private cooking demonstration after which we were served the dishes he cooked for us. There was much discussion and Cyrus and his assistant were only too happy to share their extensive knowledge and experience of Indian food. Thank you, most enjoyable.

    Safe introduction to Indian street food
    Cyrus, our guide, was very knowledgable and took time to explain cooking methods and ingredients to us. We visited 3 meat and 2 sweet vendors on the tour which we would never have done by ourselves. Not really for vegetarians or picky eaters but the food was delicious!

    When in Lko eat as the Lukhnawi's do
    If would be impossible to forgive yourself if you don't take a culinary walk with the Tornos. Our leader was Cyrus, a local boy who has grown up to know almost anything that there is to know about the food in the city. A 2 hours food walks was overwhelming because there were things that I had never eaten in my life... Like the Galawati Kebab, the Lukhnawi Kulcha. But the highlight of the trip was the 'Kaale Gajar ka Halwa' (sweet made of black carrots). These were things that are not available anywhere else and even within the city, only Tornos will be able to take you to these haunts. I strongly suggest you walk with them.

    A trip to Lucknow is incomplete without this tour!
    The food walk tour was definitely one of the main highlights during our stay in Lucknow. Arranging the walk was hassle free and our Guide Cyrus, was the nicest most accommodating guide I have ever come across. We started our tour at the mouth of the famous Chowk Market and we weaved through the myriad alleys to go from one food place to another. Cyrus also related the history and stories behind dishes and it gave us a wonderful insight into the history and people of Lucknow. The food was brilliant and we also got to meet other people that made the tour super fun! Highly recommend this tour and ask for Cyrus! you wont be disappointed.

    Don't miss this amazing opportunity
    I have to say I was a little nervous about indulging in street food on our trip but I was assured by Tornos that it would be very safe. I'm so glad I listened to them as this really was a wonderful experience. We were led by Cyrus who was very interesting to listen to and we shared a love of cooking so spent a lot of the evening talking about different techniques in Indian cooking. The food was out of this world and full of flavour. It was good fun watching the preparation at some of the stalls and learning about the art of cooking these foods through the generations. Definitely a must do in Lucknow. And if you are concerned about hygiene don't worry you will be well looked after and taken to places that cook everything fresh and to a high temperature.
