          Delightful heritage walk of the old city!
          Banty is a great guide who is very proud of his city. We did an easy walk around the old heritage town and saw the lovely street art. I was travelling with an older group and he was able to adapt it to meet their requirements which was awesome. I look forward to working with Banty again!

          Walking tour around Blue City of Jodhpur , India
          Bantu was the most informative guide. He gave us a wonderful overview of Jodphur, explaining in detail the history, architecture, culture & food. We had a lovely taste of the best masala chai, samosa and lassi . He also kindly took us into the famous Achal Nath Shiva temple, which was such a spiritual experience for us all. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him as your guide in your visit here.

          Simply the best
          Knowing how difficult it would be to navigate around the old city of Jodpur , we hired Buntu to be our guide for a 1/2 day tour. He surely did not disappoint. His messaging was quick to answer and delivered more than we expected. Form the moment I met him at our Hotel in the morning of our tour, I was impressed. He was impeccably dressed and spoke excellent English sharing all his knowledge. I very much doubt we would have found the best sights around the city without him and would have wasted time going around in circles. He shoed us he best vantage point to see the city and Merhang Fort.

          Unique Perspective. Must Do.
          Excellent. Must do this tour. It’s a private tour and not of the typical places but more meandering nooks and crannies. Bantu is very knowledgeable and kind. It’s the perfect length and the perfect amount of information.

          Highlight of Jodhpur
          Bantu’s walking tour was one of the highlights of our time in Jodhpur. He is passionate about his city and it shows in the way his eyes light up when he shares a story about jodhpur’s past or when he leads his guests into a special lane in the old city. We joined Bantu’s tour with our family of 2 adults and 4 children (ages 12. 10, 7 and 5) and he was very patient with our children, trying to keep them engaged throughout the tour. The hours we spent with him felt like having a local friend in Jodhpur who couldn’t wait to show us around. Highly recommended!

          Great walking tour with Prabhat! He was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and the region, and was able to show us different types of wells, the old blue city spots etc which we wouldn’t have found otherwise. He also treated us to some Indian snacks and sweets, and we had a great time overall. Would highly recommend

          Excellent guide and excellent views of the Blue city
          A million thanks to Bantu who was an excellent guide for my whole family (grandparents to 7 year old!). He has a deep understanding of Jodhpur history & culture, and we were happy to hear all his insights of the magical Blue City! The tour includes snacks and the most delicious chai you’ll ever have! Bantu even provided shop suggestions for sparkly bangles for my kids and Jodhpuri masala tea to take back home! And coordinated an auto (tuk tuk) to the tour and back to our hotel. Thank you so much, Bantu!

          Genuine and beautiful tour!
          Prabhat's tour of Jodhpur was an absolute delight! His early morning start allowed us to beat the crowds and traffic, making for a more peaceful and enjoyable experience. We ventured to local monuments and delved into the old town, uncovering a hidden side of the city that I never knew existed. Prabhat's vast knowledge of Rajasthan's culture, history, and general trivia was truly impressive. His gentle and considerate nature made me feel safe and well-cared for throughout the tour. Along the way, he introduced me to authentic chai tea cafes and treated me to delicious samosa. Thanks to Prabhat, my time in Jodhpur was nothing short of wonderful and unforgettable!

          Jodhpur tour with Bantu
          Last week I went on a tour in jodhpur guided by Bantu. I really enjoyed the tour. Bantu was a very friendly guy, and he had shown us a lot of nice places in the city. He took the time to explain a lot of things about the city and reply to any questions we had.

          Jodhpur Blue City guided walk
          From the moment we met Bantu, the owner of Walk to BlueCity Heritage Tours we knew we were going to be in good hands. He guided us through the history of the blue city with consummate ease, answering our many questions and introducing some of the hidden treasures of the blue city we would not have discovered on our own. Bantu is thoroughly professional, knowledgable and a delight to be in the company of. An excellent tour and an excellent guide.

          A wonderful start to the day
          The tour with Bantu was absolutely worth it! I travel alone and as a woman I felt very comfortable with him. I usually avoid touring because most of them are not very worthwhile. But Bantus is worth the money! Bantu is very professional, has a broad knowledge of Jodhpur and India and has come up with a wonderful tour of the Blue City with nice spots for photos. Not too long, not too short and the whole thing connected with sympathetic lightness. Absolute recommendation!

          Wonderful way to orient yourself to Old Jodhpur
          If you're looking for a way to get your bearings in the labyrinth of the Blue City, you need look no further than Bantu's insightful, friendly, illuminating walking tour. My wife and I loved getting to know Jodhpur through the eyes of a lifelong resident who is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about his hometown, while also being welcoming and hospitable to people from faraway lands. After the nearly 3 hours we spent with Bantu, we felt much more at home in this beautiful place and were excited to explore more. Plus, he introduced us to the best chai and samosas in town! Yum! A word of warning: this ambitious walking tour covers a lot of ground, so make sure you're prepared for almost 3 hours of walking, including some steep climbing. It's well worth it for the experiences you'll have and the memories you'll take away! Not to be missed! P.S. As of December 2019, Bantu doesn't have a website, but if you email him via TripAdvisor, he's very responsive and will get back to you with all the details right away.

        This is the most authentic experience and I really appreciate the information and places Deepak brought me. It was a personal tour for me and Deepak made the effort to share the Rajasthan culture, architecture and just the daily life of people in Jodhpur. I also had the chance to experience local coffee and a very yummy samosa! Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see and experience real life in the blue city Jodhpur - the uncut version which is rare these days. Thank you Deepak and I will definitely come with my family next time!

        A morning well spent learning all about the heritage and culture behind this wonderful city. Bantu was such a kind and knowledgeable guide. I would never have been able to find all of the beautiful corners that he showed us by myself. He was very patient in answering all our questions and waiting while we took MANY pictures. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would highly recommend everyone to do this if you truly want to experience the old city in Jodhpur. 10/10

        I new nothing about Jodhpur when I visited it in early February 2024. The ‘Blue city’ sounded so intriguing that I wanted to know all about it. Luckily, my friend who I was travelling with, had us booked in with Bantu for an early morning two hour walk through the city. This turned out to be an extremely memorable experience.

        Bantu has a vast wealth of information. He took us on a fast paced walk through the city and his in-depth knowledge and obvious love for the place enthused and informed us. He is a great orator and speaks excellent English.

        From its earliest beginnings to present day, Bantu explained the origins of the Blue city. He explained in detail the origins of its people and that of their their rulers. The inhabitant’s customs and traditions and the city’s blueness. There was not a single question that Banto could not answer or elaborate on. The man lives and breathes Blue city.

        If you are fascinated by, culture, history and architecture and visit Jodhpur, Bantu is someone you need to speak with. For an extremely small outlay you will receive interesting and invaluable information and be thoroughly entertained.

        This was an amazing tour of the city, which would have been very difficult to navigate on our own.

        Our tour guide Deepak was knowledgeable having been a tour guide for Jodhpur for the last 23 years and was an official licensed guide. He spoke 5 languages and his English was easy to understand.

        Really enjoyed the tour but you will have to watch carefully where you tread.

        Only 10% of the pre covid number of tourists have now returned to visiting the city, so now is definitely the time to be visiting.

        My first day in Jodhpur was so overwhelming I felt worried to go out. But I am so glad I booked the Bluecity walking tour with Buntu, a very well spoken and humble man.

        I learnt how beautiful Jodhpur was as he toured me around the place, explaining to me about the history of Jodhpur and other really interesting facts about India.

        Especially as a solo traveller, it was great having someone local show me around the city, with whom I felt safe.

        I loved absolutely everything from the Bluecity walking tour with Buntu, and I would definitely recommend his tour if you go to Jodhpur.

        Me and my friend really enjoyed this tour. There was just us so we were able to ask lots of questions and learnt so much about Jodhpur and India more generally. Our guide is was studying a masters in Indian history so we were definitely in good hands! We also got to try some local snacks and have some chai along the way so we’re kept refreshed throughout.

        I was recovering from being sick so had to take regular breaks which our guide was very happy to accommodate. Otherwise, the tour was very manageable and is is not taxing at all for anyone of average fitness.

        I would definitely recommend this tour if you’re in Jodhpur, you’ll learn so much and if you do it at the start of your stay it’ll help you get more out of your visit to the city.

        I had spoken to Bantu Bhaiyya a couple of months before my trip since i had seen such rave reviews of his tour and wanted to make sure that when i was in jodhpur i would definitely join the tour. The tour lasts for a couple of hours and its simply brilliant. He is a gem of a person and explains the history of Jodhpur and Brampuri and the reasons for the blue walls in jodhpur. The tour is so engaging and fun that you dont seem to know once the two hours are done. Thanks Bantu Bhaiyya for a wonderful time. Anyone wanting to see a different side of jodhpur please do go for this tour. I wish i could give 10 stars. Bantu is extremely professional and was on time for the tour. It starts at Ghanta Ghar and ends there as well. To see jodhpur with all the blue walls and the history that is seeped into it makes it simply breathtaking. The history lesson and the pyaaz ki kachori that go along with it is the icing on the cake.

        Bantu was not only incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his city, but also remarkably kind and great to talk to about Rajasthan, India, spirituality and life, as well as more important things, like cricket. I felt like I had known him for years. His tour really is an authentic slice of beautiful Jodhpur. You will not find a better walking tour in Jodhpur, I am sure of it. I hope to cross paths with you again some day.

        Also worth noting, is that Bantu did not take me to any shops, something I was extremely grateful for. Too many tour guides in India take travellers to shops, hoping to score a commission. He will, however, take you out for chai masala tea, and the delicious Jodhpur speciality of Makhaniya Lassi.

        This tour with Bantu blew us away!

        Bantu is more than a tour-guide. He is an Indian host. On his tour, I didn't feel like a customer. I felt like a friend being introduced to a new city.

        Bantu guides his guests through the intricate maze of its alleys to uncover some hidden gems that are truly breathtaking. His tour isn't merely a visual treat. He also explains the history behind the place in great detail. Despite being an Indian, I appreciated the depth of information he provided.

        What is more? You are treated to some of the best masala chai and local delicacies, such as pyaaz-ki-kachori and mirchi vada under his guidance. And while you are savouring these delectables, Bantu tells you unforgettable stories that Indians have been narrating for several millenia.

        I came to this tour expecting to appreciate Jodhpur better. I left this tour inspired by a selfless soul who is spreading joy to visitors to Jodhpur for more than 2 decades. If you're ever at Jodhpur, don't miss out on this perspective altering experience.

        The coordination for the visit was smooth thru WA. We were met on time by Bantu ji, who started to explain the history of this wonder place. We walked thru the Blue city and got to know why " Blue". A nice easy walk thru narrow streets and soak in some history. Finished with excellent tea and local snacks. Was a wonderful experience and a definite recommendation. Do the morning tours only before the sun starts to burn ( pls no traffic, no honks)
