What people are saying about History Tours in Amritsar
It was a good tour, the guide Mr Ajay was very knowledgeable about Amritsar town. We learned a lot about the history of the city and its importance in Punjab's society. We also visited the Partition museum near Golden Temple and the War Museum on the way to Wahah border. I highly recommend this your, though I suspect it can be priced a bit lower.
