          We took this private tour with Mr. Onkar. He was 9:00 am o’clock outside we were staying waiting for us. He was so nice and polite and answered all our questions, and I have to said, oh boy we had lots. The ride to the rock cut temple was a beautiful scene, and we were able to enjoy a more rural and natural landscape of the Kangra Valley. The archeological site was beyond amazing and Mr. Onkar explained a lot about it. The other sites we visited were also so cool the Kangra Fort, and the Hindu temple. Especially at the temple you get to see the religiosity of Indian Hindus, so beautiful and spiritual. Also got to say, the lunch place they choose for us was soooo sooo good, we got a chicken curry tomato base, sorry I don’t remember the name but it was so tasty and yummy. If you are in the region you must take these tours. We are now planning our second tour to Palampur!

          Beautiful trek with the most amazing guide team
          Amazing experience with amazing guides! Their guide Mr. Ranjit was the most patient and motivating support throughout the hike. I am generally a slow hiker and there were times when I would find the terrain difficult to manage but I was able to complete the whole hike within a day because of him motivating him and keeping me in good spirits. Raj from the management team of HimachalbyLocals made sure my mom who was in the hotel was kept informed of my progress when we got late. Overall an amazing experience that I would gladly repeat again soon!

          Great walk around McLeod Ganj
          The walking tour with Ashok was educative, interactive and interesting with his in-depth knowledge of the area, his cultural nuances and references and the anecdotes about the Tibetan history. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

          Triund Jun'24
          Left Zostel in Mcleod around 7am - perfect timing. Quick tip: skip this Zostel, it's a pain to access with tons of stairs. Cab to trek start: 500 rupees for 3 people. Saw some walking there - don't bother, makes an easy trek moderately tough. Trail's straightforward, no guide needed. Enjoy the shady trees along the way. You'll reach to about 2800ft Summit's got tent rentals if you want to stay overnight. Plenty of spots to chill and soak in the awesome views. No pro skills required - if you can handle a regular walk, you'll manage fine. Only the last bit gets a little tricky.

          Excellently managed tour operator. I had taken a custom tour from them for Guna Devi hike, kora circuit wak, naddi to bhagsu hike with airport transfers. Mr Raj the tour coordinator and my guide Mr. Omkar were both excellent!!! Raj arranged tour as per my requirement and was within my time boundations. Omkar sir was very knowledgeable, I learned a lot about mcloedganj, its people and culture. The driver was always punctual and polite. The price quoted and service provided both were 10/10

          Dharamshala Tibetan Monasteries
          It was very easy to coordinate and plan a tour with this group. The host was communicative, flexible, and organized pick up from our hotel. Our tour guide spoke decent English. I was hoping he could provide us with history of Dharamshala and background of Tibetan Buddhism, since the tour was visiting prominent Tibetan Buddhist sites. He seemed some what knowledgeable, but his practicing religion is not Buddhism, so sometimes when he asked questions, he didn’t know the answers. He didn’t really provide a comprehensive explanation and we often had to ask questions to get him to provide information. Because his English wasn’t that great, some times his facts would contradict each other. He spoke softly at the sites and we could barely hear him, whereas in the car he would speak loudly. I’m sure he was doing his best, however, for the price we paid, I would have expected a better tour.

          Memorable Summer holiday at McLeod Ganj organized by Himachal Bylocals
          This was our first visit to Dharamshala - Mcleod Ganj and wanted to experience best of the place and activities. We found Himachal Bylocals on TripAdvisor and contacted them to organize a 6 day itinerary. It was a great decision to go with them. Everything from Airport (Amritsar) pickup and drop to local sight seeing and guides was organized perfectly. Raj who was our contact at Himachal Bylocals constantly enquired and ensured we were doing well and things were going as per the plan. Special mention to Onkar who was our tour guide to triund and sight seeing including monasteries. He had deep knowledge of local culture, history and is a certified mountain rescuer. Locals are extremely friendly and welcoming and the place is simply gorgeous to say the least. Triund hike was a great experience which we did with our 11 year old. Definitely a winter trip to experience snow is in the making now that summer trip is done.

          Thank you team Himachal bylocals. They arranged the entire tour for us, from pick up and drop from the airport to local sightseeing. The highlight of the tour was a day trek to triund. Our guide Omkar was very knowledgeable and kept answering all our questions. He was also very sensitive to our needs, with safety as a primary concern. We gladly recommend.

          Shimla Mall Road full of local handicrafts and delicious snacks on roadsides.
          I recently visited Shimla and had long walk on the Mall Road. I had an amazing experience! The scenic beauty and vibrant atmosphere make it a perfect place to unwind. The road is lined with Local shops, cozy cafes, and delightful eateries, offering a mix of local handicrafts and delicious snacks. I enjoyed strolling along the road, taking in the stunning views of the surrounding hills.

        Great tour. It actually took us 9 hours from Bestwestern Revanta McLeod Ganj (started 9am, returned 6pm).

        Tour organizer is awesome and responsive. Guide and driver were really nice. We covered a lot of ground, including scenic views from Gaddi, walk through a Naddi village, climbed up to the waterfalls in Bhagsu, lunch at the Mcleod Ganj market, Dalai lama’s residence and temple, Gyuto monastery, and then art institute at Norbulingka. Packed day.

        Be prepared to walk (which we loved). We registered close to 20,000 steps on apple iphone.

        The spots are nicely selected. It is good tour if you are short on time and coming with family. It is a touch more expensive and if you try and find local taxi people you can do the complete your at nearly 50% less cost. But apart from the money, point are good , driver is good and the cab is clean.
        Thanks

        It was good, had a great time exploring places. Special thanks to Onkar for his insights and to the driver for the safe trip :)
        It did run a little longer than expected but they were accommodating. Definitely recommend if you have less time to explore, the itinerary was well structured.

        This tour is the best way to sightsee in Dharamshala and Mcleodganj if you're only in town for a day. Ashok (English-speaking guide) and Abhishek (driver) were prompt and friendly and very patient with elderly family members. They accommodated all our requests and needs, and went above and beyond in transporting and guiding us through the important sites of this area. Our guide Ashok was extremely knowledgeable and helped us understand the history and significance of what we were seeing and experiencing. Highly recommend!

        I booked a solo tour because I have a very bad back; I wanted to go at my own pace, so I wouldn’t slow anybody else down. My guide and driver, Onkar and Akash, were wonderful - Akash has nerves of steel, driving these roads with traffic, and Onkar was quite patient with my need to sit down more often than most tourists. He was quite knowledgeable about the British presence in the area, and also about the various local peoples and tribes in the Himalayas, Tibet, and Nepal. I had a very full day, even though my back prevented me from going to the Dalai Lama’s compound. But that just gives me a reason to return, and I’ll definitely let Raj and Himachal Bylocals set it up!

        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.

        We were blown away by how good our guide Mr Ashok was. He was very informative arriving at each place and offered knowledge during our visits on everything from Buddhism to cricket, area history, Gaddi nomadic customs and Tibetan culture . He is an experienced mountaineer too so very obliging in answering our questions about the views of this Himalayan range throughout the tour. The sites were well chosen and the timetable well planned for the best of each site.
        We enjoyed every minute of this tour. We were surprised we had been gone all day but the time flew. Our driver was excellent too, delivering and collecting us at each site with efficiency despite traffic snarl-ups, and navigating busy hilltop and town centre roads safely and comfortably.
