Hi! My name is Rahul, I live in Delhi. And I have been to all the 28 states of India 🇮🇳 Besides being a tour guide, I am a Civil Engineer here, a local in every way. I am passionate about visiting new places and immersing myself in different cultures. I want to give people the experience why I love traveling so much. I enjoy telling stories and that is one reason I adore Delhi. This city has a long history, and with that comes many stories to tell. Let me be the voice of these ancient walls to tell you what they would say if they could talk.

We had the most wonderful tour with Rahul. We can't recommend his tour enough! He really cared about what we are personally interested in and based on that information, took us to some lovely off-the-beaten-track places in Delhi. He is so lovely, chilled out and easy to talk to, and is absolutely brimming with tips and recommendations for Delhi and wider India. We tried some incredible street food, saw some beautiful back-alley architecture, went on a rickshaw and learnt about the different communities that make up Delhi Old City. Had we longer in the city we definitely would have done another of his tours! 10/10

Absolutely thrilled with my experience on the Guruwalk tour with Rahul in Old Delhi! From the moment we met, Rahul exuded warmth and professionalism, immediately making me feel at ease and excited for the journey ahead. His deep knowledge of Old Delhi’s history, culture, and hidden gems was truly impressive. Rahul’s passion for his city shone through every story and fact he shared. He took us through bustling markets, historical landmarks, and quaint alleyways, each with its own fascinating tale. His ability to navigate the vibrant chaos of Old Delhi with such ease and confidence was reassuring, making me trust him implicitly. What stood out most was Rahul’s genuine care for our group’s experience. He ensured everyone was engaged, answered all our questions with patience, and even tailored parts of the tour to our interests. The little touches, like recommending the best local snacks and helping us haggle in the markets, made the tour feel personal and special. I left the tour not only with a greater appreciation for Old Delhi but also with a sense of having made a new friend. If you’re looking for an enriching, safe, and truly enjoyable exploration of Old Delhi, I wholeheartedly recommend a tour with Rahul through Guruwalk. You won’t be disappointed!
