Overview

Walking is a great way to experience the real Ahmedabad, bringing you face-to-face with the old city’s architecture and everyday life. This 4.5-hour morning tour takes you deep into the old lanes, bazaars and landmarks. See the Swaminarayan Temple and ‘Shaking Minarets,’ discover ‘pols’ — 18th-century housing districts with their own lanes and gateways — explore bazaars, and ride a tuk-tuk or two. A cup of masala tea and a tasty Gujarati breakfast included.
  • 4.5-hour walking tour of Old Ahmedabad
  • Stroll through old lanes and bazaars, and learn about the city’s history and culture
  • Discover the ‘pols,’ 18th-century groups of houses with their own lanes and gateways
  • See Swaminarayan Temple, Jama Masjid and the ‘Shaking Minarets’ of Sidi Bashir Mosque
  • Savor a masala ‘chai’ tea and traditional Gujarati breakfast
  • Small group of 12 people at most
Meet your guide at a teashop in Old Ahmedabad. Then, kick-start your morning with some sweet masala chai (tea) as you hear an introduction to the city. Known locally as Amdavad, Ahmedabad is one of Gujarat’s wealthiest cities, with a rich history, fascinating architecture, and colorful bazaars.

See the cafe’s wall-hung painting by famous artist M.F. Husain, and learn how the now-deceased artist was once a regular visitor. Then, catch a tuk-tuk to the Swaminarayan Temple, a vision of colorful teak carvings dedicated to Lord Swaminarayan.

Next, head deeper into Old Ahmedabad to view its pols: clusters of houses with communal lanes and private gateways. Walk through some pols, and observe some of their beautifully carved houses as you learn their history.

Visit Manek Chowk square, and see the chabutras, the city’s bird-feeding towers, on route to the 15th-century Jama Masjid mosque. Admire the mosque's Hindu- and Muslim-style architecture, and after savoring a traditional Gujarati breakfast, ride a tuk-tuk to the Sidi Bashir Mosque, famous for its ‘Shaking Minarets’ (Jhulta Minar), so-called because they vibrate gently when shaken.

Finally, peer into the 15th-century Panchkuva step well, and explore a textile bazaar before your tour ends at the Sidi Sayed Mosque.
