Rishikesh is small but an Indian town may still be overwhelming to a foreigner. Alpesh knew all the street shortcuts, ashrams and stores, plus he had very interesting information on all of India and it's political and religious history.
We stopped whenever I wanted and he adapted the tour to my interests, including the pick up and drop off spots, he helped me negotiate the prices in the shops and even helped me carry my purchases.
He took plenty of photographs with my cellphone and contrary to many other guides, he studied photography and took really good pics!
I definitely recommend for anyone traveling to Rishikesh for the first time.
This tour was amazing! Mr. Alpesh was our guide, and we spent a whole afternoon walking through the city and talking about Indian culture. He was very kind and attentive. The climax of the tour was the Aarti Cerimony...but we keep together up to the dinner!
