The House of MG organizes a tour of the old Ahmedabad. This is an excellent way to see the city and learn its history through it's Havelis, temples, and Jamma Masjid. Our guide, Sayied, was very knowledgeable and entertaining as he weaved us through the narrow streets. The walking tour takes 2 hours.

So happy I found this and took part. My first opinion of the old city was that it was old, dirty and run down but once I did the tour I came to have a greater understanding and appreciation for this part of the city. Highly recommended if you're interested in history and buildings. The tour also takes in some... More

My tour guide was Nirav, the tour started around 8:45 with a brief video introduction and then it went on for another three hours. The old city center of Ahmedabad is a fascinating maze of little streets and neighborhood complexes called "pols", each of them owned by a different family or syndicate of craftsmen. Very interesting details, such as the... More

Very nice experience roaming inside the old city of ahmedabad. This walk is organized every Sunday. Old monument, Jain temple, old building, old mosque are main attraction of this walk. Explanation is good.

A walk through the old city of Ahmedabad, with an enthusiastic guide who explains the place. A few temples and one mosque are visited, but the main reason to take this tour is to see the pols, which are a lot more unique to this place.

A must-do walk in Ahmedabad. Superbly informed guide who makes you go through passages one would not suspect in the poles. Very, very enlightning walk. Perfect to discover and understand the maze of the old city. Splendid value for money.

We did the reverse of starting at the Sidi Saayad Mosque till we reached the Sri Swaminarayan Temple. The stories of the Pol/ mohalla/ colony are interesting. It's best to start early for this walk to avoid the traffic of old Ahmedabad. Our guide Nirav Panchal was an old hand at it. And we even met with the grandson of... More

History is here and alive..... Not in books. The technology used to built this place is good for that time and you will see by yourself.

We opted for the heritage night walk organized by the House of Magaldas since the evenings in Ahmedabad are slightly more bearable than the mornings. We were a group of 14 persons plus a guide provided by the House of Mangaldas. The tour was well organized, went off as per schedule, and was a completely new experience for all of... More

This walk is being organised 365 days a year for the last 20 years or so. That itself should give you an idea of its popularity. Lead by volunteers, this 2 hour walk takes you through the narrow streets of the old city, from the mandir (Swaminarayan) to the masjid (Jumma Masjid), giving you a rare insight on the art,... More
