We heard about Davinder Singh (Dav) from friends and contact him before arriving to Amritsar. Dav arranged for us 4 days tour in Amritsar including hotels, drivers and restaurants.
It was fantastic!!! He Accompanied us all that time, and made plans according to our requests, with an excellent and friendly service!!!
The Heritage Walk was just a part of our tour. Dav also took us to various Sikh temples, the ceremony near the Pakistani border, and of course the Golden Temple. He arranged some visits in the temples and we could talk with authentic Sikh people.
Dav has wide knowledge in regard to Sikh culture and history, and he knows their "secret" places, and the best places to visit.
Above all – he is a good person, you can trust him, and he will do his best to make your visit valuable.

It is warmly recommended to contact Dav to arrange your visit in Amritsar:

Read about the Heritage Walk from Trip advisor.

Contacted Davinderji from Bangalore and ensured he was available for the Heritage walk.

The walk starts at Town Hall (walkable distance from Golden Temple/Jallianwala Bagh).
Davinderji is passionate about the city and is eager to share his vast knowledge with the visitors.

His is a perfect person to educate visitors not only about the city and its sights but also about the rich history of Sikhism.

He walks you trough the bylanes surrounded by historical buildings of the British era, the landmarks that epitomize our freedom struggle as well as eateries that are a must-try.

We were mighty impressed and agreed readily when he asked us if we wanted to witness the 'Prakash' ceremony of the guru Granth sahibji at the Golden Temple. The ceremony is held at 4:00 AM. He explained us and got us into best vantage points to witness the activities at the Prakash ceremony. Thereafter he also took us around the complex and showed us the sikh museum, Gurudwara of Kaulan mata, The Langar kitchen and the Akal takth.

He also suggested us good places to eat and to shop for local specials.
Highly recommend Davinder ji to enhance your 'Amritsar experience'.

This starts from Town Hall. It is held everyday in the evening. However ensure you get in touch with the guide beforehand. Sometimes it gets cancelled last minute. We were guided by Devinder Singh. We got his number from tripadvisor.com Very nice and knowledgeable person.
Walk is in by-lanes of Amritsar which is not very clean. However places we saw were gem and not possible to locate without help of qualified guide. Cost is Rs 25.00 per person. You may tip if you enjoy the tour.
