About
During the mid 18th century, with the Mughals at Delhi in decline, Lucknow gained prominence as the brightest star on the Indian cultural firmament – its rise fueled by the immense wealth of the Avadh and the matching extravagance of its Nawabs! This walk takes you through some of Old Lucknow’s most stupendous buildings, reveling in the stories of their makers. A short Tonga ride (horse-drawn carriage) will take you into the heart of this epicenter of culture. We explore across its bustling medieval markets, tasting sumptuous delicacies of its refined cuisine and interact with the carriers of the city’s suave mannerisms, whose friendly vibes will make you fall in love with this romantic city.

We attended two walks with him, Old Lucknow city tour and Bara Imambara. We started at the Bara Imambara ,learning the history behind these famous monuments, Bara Imambara, Teelewali Masjid and Rumi Darwaza. We did the old Lucknow city walk exploring the chowk area of Lucknow , also explored the local food while exploring chowk. Narration and articulation of Mr. Samir Kher is simply superb and the entire walk was very interesting.
Thanks Robaroo, thank you Samirji.

We were looking for something other than familiar stores and restaurants that would help us connect with the city better. Samir ji did exactly that with his artful storytelling.

We were with him for over 3 hours and yet did not get bored even for a second. We did a walk of the Residency and he breathed life into our imagination about the mutiny. in the end, we had the best history immersion as he gave us the chronological chain of events that led to the city and its present culture.

Thanks to Roobaroo Walks for connecting us with a stellar storyteller!

I completed a virtual tour today (using Zoom) of Lucknow old city with Roobaroo walks. It was of 1.5 hours, along with a few simple quizzes, and they stayed online for an extra half hour to answer everyone's questions.

I found it quite informative and interesting, it covered mainly the history and architecture. It focused on the Chowk area, the oldest part of Lucknow, a few palaces by the nawabs of Lucknow, the British residency and Bada Imambara and Rumi Darwaza gate.

Even though it was a virtual tour, the organizers managed to fit even more useful information than a real tour, by adding google maps to show how the city expanded, historical paintings of old Lucknow, quotes from European visitors, rise of British power etc.

I found this really interesting and would love to repeat it. I have been on quite a few virtual tours in this Covid era, and this one I found more informative than the others, in the short time available. Would definitely recommend it.

Samir Kher was our daastan-goh during our visit .His story telling with maps ,paintings and sketches made our trip memorable. The food trail through old city was delicious . The visit to residency and his narration of events of first war of Independence was riveting. I could actually visualize the events unfolding in my mind. The food served for lunch and dinner at old havelis during the trip was authentic Lucknow food and delicious. Worth every rupee we paid for.

All the nuances that our history books do *not* cover!! Amazing experience. History, culture, architecture, food, and fine arts all rolled into one. Some highlights that are my key take-aways: Seeing British Empire's opium depot used in the Opium War - it is still standing! Components of a shayari. Kathak performance. Ganjing - got to see what gets UP yuppies excited! Primacy of Awadh in Indian polity. The absolute best - the Residency - nucleus of the the 1857 Rebellion/Mutiny - got see trenches where this was fought.

I took the walk of Lucknow Residency which was a total eye opener about the role and position of Awadh in the revolution of 1857. Never before did I find a day by day story of war told so creatively. Sameer is highly knowledgeable and can answer with intriguing anecdotes. Totally loved it and highly recommended.
