I stayed in the hostel for 3 nights in one of their mixed luxury dorms. I totally liked my experience. This hostel also has wifi, common room with tv, and a workstation.
I booked 3 tours with them -mid-night Golden Temple visit, India border tour and bicycle heritage tour. All 3 were amazing. I highly recommend you mid-night Golden Temple tour. The nearby area is also good, you may simply step out of the hostel to try some street food and explore the local market.
5 stars to this one!

Our family has lost Amritsari heritage and finding City on Pedals enabled us to take in the temples, tea stalls and winding back lanes of Amritsar to a depth we would never have achieved alone. Our absolutely fantastic guide, Rabia, was genial, informative and professional with a great sense of humour. We felt safe in her hands and her local knowledge revealed so much to us. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and City on Pedals did us proud. All I can say is, "just do it!"

This tour really made my visit to Amritsar come alive. To see so many of the "hidden gems" in the city that I would never have seen by myself. The tour guide, Aman, clearly enjoyed his job and knew so many interesting facts about the places we visited. I even booked the tour at very short notice (the night before!) and they were happy to accommodate me. I'll definitely do this tour again the next time I'm in Amritsar! A must for all visitors to this lovely city.

As a full-time travel writer, I enjoy exploring popular tourist traps, along with finding local, hidden gems. Recently, I visited India for the first time and one of the cities that I explored was Amritsar. I wanted to see the Golden Temple along with other tourist attractions, but I was also very interested in finding cool, local places to sightsee, take photos and to eat.

One memorable early morning, I went on a fantastic bicycle tour with City on Pedals. Rishab and Michelle (the founders) were amazing! I learned so much about the history of Amritsar, visited some fantastic spots that I would have otherwise never seen, ate the most delicious street food and met so many small business owners (generation to generation businesses) that it was definitely worth sacrificing a little beauty sleep. Actually, I’m all about supporting locals and through this bike tour, this is possible; plus, you get to see more of the city in a short amount of time. And all the while you keep active while having fun.

This bike tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Amritsar and it totally made me fall in love with the city, it’s people, the Amritsari food, culture and especially the off-the-beaten path sites visited. I highly recommend it.

The Hidden Secrets Cycle Tour and Golden Temple are must do activities when in Amritsar.

You will see sights and learn things that even lifelong residents of Amritsar do not know. It is definitely worth skipping that 6th kingfisher, setting your alarm and getting up early to enjoy these tours and the warm hospitality of this company and the people of Punjab.

I would like to say a huge thanks to Rishab for accommodating me at literally the last minute (I’m sorry for waking you up) and to Amandeep for 2 great Tours and for kindly giving me lifts to the start of the bike tour and to my hotel. The ride on a back of a scooter was an experience in itself.

Thanks and best wishes! I look forward to following your success on social media and be reminded of a truly unique birthday :)

I really had a very short time in hand to explore Amritsar and luckily I got to know about City on Pedals. Cycling is my passion and hence I got a chance to explore the city in a very unique and healthy way. I got to explore things which were not really mentioned anywhere on the internet. The guide who accompanied me was very knowledgable and welcoming and explained everything in a subtle way. The food which we had in between the tour was just awesome.
I really want to thank city on pedals for making my Amritsar tour very special and fun. This tour is something which I will cherish entire my life. Hope you will start your ventures in different cities of India as well.

All I could say is this experience is worth the money and everyone should experience this once in a lifetime. From the streets of old Amritsar to discovering the hidden gems and food, this trip takes your experience to another level. Thanks to the team of City on Pedals for making my trip memorable. You should not miss this while you are Amritsar.

We found out about CityOnPedals at the last minute in another blog while researching activities in Amritsar. With a free morning in our agenda my husband and our 2 kids decided to try the heritage tour. Not only did Rishab and his staff reach out to help us with our itinerary, he also arranged a pick up/return after our tour. We learned so much about Amritsar’s past while exploring the now. The food was amazing and biking through the neighborhoods helped us feel connected even though we’re not from here. Would highly recommend this when in Amritsar!

The concept is relatively new to India: to explore a city on cycle.
One got to see the city in a new light. Stayed away from the usual touristy spots like Golden Temple, Jalianwala Bagh etc.
You get to see Ram Bagh/ Company Park, Maharaja Ranjit Singh's summer Palace, Partition museum/ Town hall (from outside), mosque, gurdwara, and other sights of the city which are hidden from the eyes of the average tourist.
Along the way got to taste Masala chai, have poori aaloo with halwa, kulcha from a roadside vendor and round off with sinful lassi.
The tour was done between 5:45-9:45 am, before the city awakes, so we beat the heat/ traffic/ pollution and noise! Not a particularly difficult effort cycling wise. We got good cycles, adequate safety equipment, knowledgeable guides and were well looked after.
A definite 'to do' eco-tourism thingy which opens your eyes to the urgent need for conservation of our heritage.
