Superb historical insight to Lucknow

We can’t thank Roobaroo walks and Samir our storyteller enough for making our visit to Lucknow so special and memorable. We did two walks with Samir one at the Residency and one through General Kothi and Chattar Manzil a live ASI site and ending with a fabulous meal at Naimat Khana. Each was of 4 hours and it was wonderful to have someone so knowledgable to tell us in depth the story of the people who lived in the Residency and what lead to the first war of independence. There was so much to take in but the setting came alive with the stories and anecdotes. We highly recommend that anyone who wants a real feel for the history of this city should take a walk with Samir. By – TinaVajpeyi (9 November 2019)

The Lucknow Residency Tour

We had just completed the most amazing Varanasi tour with Roobaroo and decided to avail their services in Lucknow too! We had taken ‘ The Lucknow Residency Tour’ and Sameer was our guide. Samir was just amazing, he has fantastic knowledge about the history of Lucknow. His commentary brought the ruins of The Residency to life….. he made those three hours at the Residency memorable for us! If we had more time we would have certainly taken the other tours with him! We highly recommend Roobaroo for anyone visiting Lucknow! By – Venture822670 (5 December 2019)
