    Awesome experience to get to know more of the tibetan community living indian himalaya, and of Dalai Lama
    I have contacted Himachal Bylocals for this tour based on reviews and could really not be happier of IT. After booking the visit with tripadvisor and being contacted by the local team, I met the guide, Mr. Vikas on the selected day and we started the tour. Mr. Vikas is a exquisite human being, very knowledge and professional, with perfect English speaking skills (although he know many other languages too), and genuinely gentle too. It was a true pleasure to meet him during the tour, and get to know not only about the Dalai Lama and the history of the tibetan community in Dharamsala, but also many information and curiosities about the culture in the area of himachal pradesh, the himalayan mountains, along with past and present indian culture in general too. After meeting in the central square in McLeod Ganj, we visited the Kalachara Temple, small but peaceful, full of tibetan traditional arts, mani wheels, and with very good vibes. The visit then continued at the Tsuglagkhang Complex, which is the temple where the Dalai Lama also resides. There, we were lucky enough to visit at the time where monks train their daily "debate" practice. In addition, we visited the whole temple and got lots of information. After lunch, we continued the visit at the Tibet museum complex, where I got to know many more aspects of the tibetan community and culture (from the past and and present political situations, to the traditional view of astrology and medicine) the currently living in this very special place within the Indian Himalayan mountains. In short, it was a true pleasure taking this tour, and would warmheartedly recommend it to anyone.

    Best monsoon trekking experience, gorgeous views of the Dauladhar mountains and the valleys below..
    We had the best experience of our life on our trek to Triund, the trek was a tough one, but the gorgeous views that we got to see from the Triund top, made us forget all the effort and difficulty that we had to go through while trekking. The monsoon has made the trek magical with many water streams flowing enroute, the clouds playing hide and seek all the time, and the gorgeous greenery of the hills. Our guide Ranjith was very good and encouraged us through our journey, and he accomodated our last minute decision to stay overnight on the Triund top, which gave us an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Dauladhar range in the evening light, with rays of the setting sun falling on the snow capped mountains and illuminating the entire range, it was a sight to behold. Next day morning we woke up to the most beautiful views, with the sun rising above the Dauladhar mountains and lighting up the entire valley below, it was an experience that would be etched in our memories forever.

    Poor Customer Service
    I wasn't able to make it because the monsoon rains closed the train and highway. They don't have a refund option so they did no work and I paid full price. I wouldn't recommend this service for that reason as it's a sign of poor customer service. I hope they reconsider so I can come back and change this review.

    Awesome Tour of Rock Cut Temple, Kangra fort, and Temple
    Great tour of there places: Masroor Rock Cut Temple built in 8th century and that has statues of Ram, Sita, and Laxman. Carved out of a single rock. Kangra fort that changed hands over the years for its strategic location in between three rivers. Bajreswari Devi Temple with doors and place of worship made of silver. Lot of driving and some walking. All three places were really neat and of course the scenic views were awesome. Tour organizer, guide, and driver were awesome.

    Shimla Guided tour experience
    It was a wonderful guided tour of Shimla. Although it rained at Fagu we managed to have a wonderful time at Shimla. Himanchal by Locals and its wonderful team ensured we had the best of the local experience. Mr. Raj coordinated it very well for us and so did our guide Mr. Sanjay. Would definitely recommend this team for anyone travelling to Himanchal. Thanks!

    Very professional n trustworthy...
    Visited Himachal during 9th to 19th May 2023. Planned our tour with Himachalbylocals. Very professional and prompt service given by Mr. Raj Bhatia. In Himachal, you drive with the sky touching mountains on very narrow and steep roads, for people like us who stays in plains it seems very risky. The driver Mr. Vijay was so calm n composed. After a day of his drive we trusted his driving and could enjoy every single moment of our journey further. As we wanted to cover Dalhousie to Shimla stretch with some off beat places to stay, Mr Raj suggested a perfect plan for us. He exactly knew what we wanted and arranged the stays and local food likewise. Apart from routine tourism our interest was in local traditional things and culture there, he suggested and arranged many things for us. The experience of Kangra and Tirthan valley was awesome! Though Mr Raj was not with us, throughout the journey he was in touch to ensure whether everything is going smoothly. Will surely recommend to plan with such a professional manager to plan a trip. Thanks Himachalbylocals for this memorable trip!

I highly recommend this full day private tour of McLeodganj and Dharamshala. The tour was delivered by a very experienced guide on behalf of Himachal by Locals company. Our guide, Vikas is a local and highly experienced. He was very knowledgable and informative and gave my group a great perspective on what we were seeing, the main sites of the region, but with an insight to life in this part of Himachal.
I strongly recommend this tour if you have only short time. It is suitable for all ages and provides great insights to Tibetan culture and religion. If you feel more active have a look at their trekking trips - I would happily go back and take one of these more adventurous trips with Vikas.
The driver and car were also fantastic, safe, professional and fun.

Ashish was an excellent guide who tailored our tour of Himachal Pradesh to our interests. When he found out we enjoyed nature, he added a scenic walk between two mountain villages so that we could see the local people and wildlife. He is an incredibly knowledgeable guide, and was never noting when delivering his information. We highly recommend!!
