“One of the best Heritage Walks around”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Amritsar has seen some fascinating events in the past, and this Heritage Walk sheds ample light on those. According to me, this was one of the finest heritage walks I have been on (being a constant traveler, I have been on a few). What makes it even better is that it is cheap and not run by a private agency.

Our guide was Mr. Davinder. The man loves Amritsar, it shows in the way he speaks of Amritsar's past, it's architecture and it's people. I thought the two hour walk with him was incredible. I would suggest you ask him as much as you can about Amritsar, Sikhism or the Golden Temple. He is eager to answer as many questions posed.

Along with being a heritage walk, it is also a food walk. He takes you through some delicious Amritsari delicacies.

Tip - do try and reach out to him a day before the Heritage Walk, and if he is available, do meet him at the Golden Temple. He will explain everything about the temple as well.

Highly Recommended.

“Mr Davinder Singh - Punjab Tourism”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

I found Mr. Davinder's information online. The testimonials written by fellow travelers were enough to finalise on him for the walk. Being an urbanist and travel photographer by profession, I was very inquisitive and was very slow as I was taking as many shots as possible. He was very patient and Kind. He was exceptionally knowledgeable and passionate about history. His eyes gleamed with enthusiasm which took you back in time. Definitely Recommended!

“A great walking tour, informal, informative and very very friendly.”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Echoing the thoughts of other posters this was an extremely good value way to find out about much of the history of Amritsar and for those of us from the UK it's a rather poignant reminder of our colonial past. Davinda is a very friendly and knowledgable guide who not only explained in detail the history of Amritsar but also gave us a great insight into the Sikh religion. At the end of the tour we took breakfast in a small cafe which was very enjoyable and at roughly 40 pence per person for as much as you could eat was a real bargain. We wish Davinda well with his endeavours and would happily recommend this tour to anyone visiting Amritsar.

“heritage walk - davinder singh superstar”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Mr Davinder Singh is an encyclopedia of historical facts and wonderful tales about Amritsar. I wish I had more time to visit the old town, but he was amazingly fast in pointing at amazing architecture, little details, shops, customs, people. Not only he is well read and very smart, but he talks with passion. That makes a big difference. He is not a simple guide, he definitely can become a good friend, besides being a fantastic cicerone. I hope to visit Amritsar again, and spend a full day with Mr. Davinder.
