The border parade was a lot of fun despite the bad weather. I felt this tour is a little expensive, given the parade admission is free entry. The guide and driver were very friendly and enthusiastic, with perfect English but on reflection, I feel we could have gotten a taxi from Amritsar to the parade for almost the same experience at a fraction of the cost.

Just finished our Wagah Border tour!! Rabia was lovely and very knowledgeable. Great English and really explained everything.

The car was great. Good AC and tons of room.

We are doing The Golden Temple tour tmo and disappointed she won't be out guide.

She new everyone at the border as well. Very friendly & social.

I even got to run with the Indian flag and the crowd went crazy. Made me tear up that they were so happy I was running with the flag.

Thanks Rabia,
Aimee & Mike

This was a really well organised tour, Rishab's advice and responses to my questions showed that he really cared and knew everything! The directions to their office were so good we knew we were going to have a good time.
Rabia drove us to a village just off from the border which was interesting, being able to see the guards from both sides was great and the hindu temple there was good to walk around.
The ceremony is great fun and having seen it on TV to be there was something else.
Rabia is great we really enjoyed her company - she was informative, interesting and good fun, a great combination!
We all wish you the best of luck with your ventures. We recommend you highly!

They were not at all organised , If they are conducting a tour , they should have sorted things out before hand .
Therefore we did not continue with the trip at all . Spoilt our mood . We had An aged lady with us . And we weren’t treated well at all .
Never will ever fall for it . Would request for a full refund .

Even Trip Advisor doesn’t have a proper customer care channel to request for a refund. .

Thank you for giving us a completely undeserving 1-star review for which I am unsurprisingly highly unappreciative. This review is our first ever 1-star. It's extremely saddening! For everyone's benefit, I advise reading details carefully before purchasing/signing up for ANYTHING. Your goal shouldn't be to show up and the first thing to do is ask for a refund just because you found there are cheaper alternatives. Of course, there are going to be cheaper alternatives but that should not be the reason why you humiliate a small business owner and their team. Your insecurity of spending money would hurt you less than a bad review that a local business gets. It hurts the morale of local businesses so much that has made Customer Satisfaction their ONLY priority. But let's go through this: 1. We are arguably one of the most organized teams in the city 2. We are very well known for our preparedness 3. Being a transparency and instructions freak, I had ensured to provide the minutest details on our tour pages which you had painfully chosen to ignore 4. I would be the first one to accept our mistakes and apologize. This is not the case 5. We have a rapport of under-promising and over-delivering 6. We treat every guest as a family member; you can see that from the previous reviews 7. With us, someone has to make a lot of effort to have a less than memorable time 8. As much as we dislike many of TripAdvisor's policies, they aren't at fault this time Despite all this, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

COP made it a very easy experience to get to and from the border ceremony. Samson was my guide and I had a good driver in a nice vehicle. I had booked a group tour but was the only person on the tour. We visited some old baths and saw countryside, bunkers and the border in the distance. Samson provided lots of explanation. Only drawback is guide can’t come into foreigner section for ceremony so you are on your own for this (although it doesn’t really need explanation and I was told everything in advance). You can probably go to the ceremony cheaper but if you are short on time to organise this is definitely an easy way to do this.

We booked the Wagah Border Tour and the Golden Temple tour.
The City on Pedals team were on point from their timely communications when we booked the tours to our arrival at their facility. They made us feel so comfortable prior to the start of our tours. Our first tour was the Wagah Border tour. Rabia our tour guide was awesome. She was a superchill person who was very informative about everything to do with Wagah Border. It felt like we were VIP's as all the Military personal knew her. My wife was able to partake in the flag running which was a priceless moment for us. Rabia made sure we were comfortable especially with the extreme heat in July.

Once we finished our Wagah Border tour we then took the Golden Temple Tour with Gurpreet. He is a fun loving guy who really enjoys his job. My son is a very quiet kid and Gurpreet made him feel so comfortable during the tour. He made sure we experienced everything at the Golden Temple from experiencing the picturesque views and eating amazing food at the langar. He was so detailed when it came to understanding Sikhism and the history of the Golden Temple.

We had a wonderful time and couldn't ask for anything more. Keep up the good work!

Trip was not just technically done well, but also guides really like their jobs and they have passion for what they do. A lot of information, not only about border and performance, but we got nice interesting background for what we saw. Also organisation was very smooth.

My wife and I took the opportunity to to book 2 tours with City on Pedals. We are normally independent travellers and so this was a bit unusual for us. I have to admit even for a seasoned traveller and with the help of maps and such it was quite difficult to locate the office/guest house. However one we reached the office it could not have been friendlier. Our first trip was to the border crossing at Wagah. Our guide Rabia was excellent and she was very knowledgeable and informative. The whole experience was great.
Our second tour was to the Golden Temple at 04:00 the next morning and a little chilly. Once again our guide Rabia was unbelievably knowledgeable about the history, culture and religious ceremonies at the temple. For both occasions I think it would have been very difficult to have found a better guide.

I did 3 tours with COP; the morning heritage cycle tour with Guru and the Wagah border and morning trip to the golden temple. Everyone of them was a 5 star expereince with two of the nicest most knowledgeable people you are likely to meet. I honestly dont know how the tours could have been better.

All are must do's!!!

Thank you guys.

Outside Jallianwala Bagh you can get any number of cheap deals for the border ceremony but you will likely find yourself sharing a tuk-tuk with 20 people and be dropped off quite a walk away. This tour was so worth it. Rabia was our guide and driver and her enthusiasm for the ceremony shines through. She explains what is going on, you get drinks and snacks, and you get to find out where it’s best to sit. Great way to experience the ceremony.
