We took back to back tours with Akansha (essential Delhi walk) and Aayush (food tour) and both were absolutely amazing!! Worth every rupee and so much fun. The walking tour takes you to places you would never get to otherwise, and the food tour - well, simply delicious. Plus, Aayush was such an outstanding guide, we wish we could have continued all day. Highly recommended!

We had a great day in Delhi with Roobaroo walks. We asked them specifically to customise a trail and they promptly researched the area and constructed a fascinating tour through it which enhanced our historical understanding and appreciation of the site. Plus, Roobaroo always has the best stories! Afterwards, Aayush took me to the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib Sikh temple, and showed me around with deep knowledge and sensitivity. Helping out in the Gurudwara kitchen after eating lunch with the community was one of the highlights of my trip 🙂

Roobaroo planned a splendid walking tour for us in Mehrauli in Delhi even though this site was not on their list of organized tours. They researched it thoroughly and provided us with a well thought out and very knowledgeable tour of the area. I can’t say enough about this tour group. As a world traveler, I have had experiences with many tour organizations but none with the thoughtfulness and intelligence displayed by Roobaroo

Roobaroo Walks will take you to places few meters away from chaos & you will be awe struck to experience the gentle side of Varanasi - peace like no other place has. Every corner has a story & Roobaroo Walks is best at narrating them. I have been to the city multiple times in the past but only got to know the real city after going for the tour!

Rivendell, a bunch of hobbits, and Gandalf! That's how I pictured ourselves while Aayush was navigating us through the narrow labyrinths of the mystical & magnificent Banaras. Saw all cultures & beliefs converging into one space and modifying themselves as per modern times. Tales from the oldest civilisations wrapped up in a 3-hour walk!

While we had explored the city by ourselves, & all of us have been in India for several months, having the walk made Varanasi come alive and added so much more context to everything we had seen. They were also very responsive while booking (it was a bit last minute and we were a bit indecisive), so that was much appreciated!

I participated in the north & south walks. They were both different and offered real insights into life and religion in Varanasi that a guide book will never give you. These tours are not to be missed. The walk reveals Varanasi's history through personal stories of inhabitants. An added advantage is that they are realistically priced!

There are 2 Varanasis: BR (Before Robaroo) and AR (After Robaroo). BR is a crowdy, caotic, smelly, noisy and dirty city where you want to run away asap. AR is one of the most interesting places you've ever been and you'll ever be with a very rich history, super interesting culture, crazy rituals and habits, and one of the best food you can find on earth!

Roobaroo with more cities!

Having helped travellers connect with India's soul (Varanasi) and her heart (Delhi), we're now looking to also get them closer to other key places - Kolkata, Amritsar, Jaipur to begin with!

We're also looking for like-minded people in these cities to join us in our endeavour. Do get in touch if you feel this would be a worthwhile and fun project to work on!

@Travellers - Stay tuned! 🙂
