I enjoy my work as a guide because the most interesting part of my profession is meeting people from all over the world. Being a guide I love to take the initiative to make my Guest feel comfortable and let them know about our Religion, the opinion of the people and Know the religion and tradition well. Receiving people from all corners of the world with a warm welcome as a guest to India and saying goodbye to them as a good friend is my quality.

Chandan Is not only a great tour guide, he is an amazing person. We toured with him two days and showed us all the good spots for eating and taking photos, he answered patiently to all our questions and gave us peace in this hectic but beautiful city. He also went out of his way to help us find some medicine we were looking for, going to three different places and translating what we needed. If you are in search of a guide, don't hesitate to book Chandan, you won't regret it!

Chandan was really knowledgeable, professional and kind. He explained as much as he can about the culture and the food, and I truly feel that he tries his 100% on his tour to make customers happy :) Without him, it would have impossible to try all the street food in India in a safe way. Highly recommended!!

Very nice tour. Price for food is around 700 leh if you want to try everything. But you can choose what you like. Definitly recomand to take this tour if you are afraid of eating from random foodstalls. Here you get good quality for amazing price and you will not get ill.
