Strongly recommended. Detailed review: Walks/tours by a lot of guides typically comprise of a ‘tourist-tailored’ checklist which involves visiting the mainstream monuments (sometimes in a rushed manner) and superficially covering only the main points in the guided narration while sticking to a standard template of facts. This is where City Tales by Rameen Khan is different. - To begin with, his tours are more of an exploration and a masterclass in storytelling. Delhi, as a historic city spanning centuries, holds enough tales with many layers that would appeal to patrons of art, architecture, history and culture. The tours are organized keeping this fact in mind with the right mix of breadth and depth. As a native resident who was fed up with the lack of genuine heritage walks, Rameen’s initiative has been like a breath of fresh air. - His style of storytelling is immersive and accessible which also draws in folks with not much of a background in history. His unique ability to weave together a compelling narrative while connecting the dots across different eras ends up painting a more holistic picture of the city’s heritage and makes one more appreciative of it. - As an example consider his tours to Humayun’s Tomb and Qutub Minar. Rameen carefully selects the monuments to be visited - including both the mainstream and the somewhat obscure sites around them. These visits are further complemented by his narration where he touches upon the stories of famous and lesser-known but important characters, the far-reaching influence of certain events across centuries and the domino effect they had on the history of India, and how the region itself evolved. Having attended many of his weekly walks and tours, it is a testament to Rameen’s incredible storytelling skills that he can keep almost 60-80 people fully engaged over the course of 2-3 hours without a hint of boredom. Of course, behind all this is a lot of painstaking research with Rameen taking utmost care to ensure historical accuracy and separating facts from myths. He is extremely passionate about history and heritage and that is evident from the quality of his tours.

I have joined 30+ walks and multiple tours with City Tales. The standout feature is always thoroughly research-based storytelling. Rameen shares detailed historical facts and engaging narratives, making the city's past come alive. For instance, at Humayun's Tomb, the guide explained the architectural innovations and its inspiration in Persian gardens, adding depth to a site I've visited many times. Rameen simplifies complex narratives into a single easy to follow thread with clear explanations. What amazed me the most was discovering hidden gems in Delhi that I had never known about, even after living here for over 20 years. We explored lesser-known places like the quaint havelis in Chandni Chowk, the serene Safdarjungs Tomb, and the narrow lanes of Nizamuddin. Each site revealed unique stories, such as the legend of the haunted Feroz Shah Kotla Fort and the story of Qudsia begum I would also highly recommend the tours that City Tales organizes - both across India and internationally - they have become our go-to holiday destinations over the last year City Tales will transform your understanding of history in general and Delhi in particular, making you see the city with new eyes.

A year back I developed a passion for exploring history of cities and monuments. Rameen, I had the pleasure of joining you on history walk in Deeg and City tour of Lucknow and numerous Delhi walks. From start to finish, it has been a wonderful experience. Depth of your knowledge of the area’s history was remarkable. With each step, you effortlessly transported our imagination back in time, vividly narrating the stories behind every landmark and street corner. Your passion for history is infectious, making the historical scenes come alive with enthusiasm. From coordinating meeting points to seamlessly navigating through crowded streets, you ensured that the experience was smooth and enjoyable for everyone involved. It was not just a stroll through the past, but a transformative journey that left me with a deeper appreciation for the rich tapestry of history woven into the fabric of our culture . Thank you and I will sure recommend If anyone looking for an enlightening and memorable historical experience, look no further than Rameen.

I have had the privilege of experiencing several baithaks and walks and one outstation tour with Rameen. He is a story-teller par excellence! Rameen’s ability to pepper his broad canvas of knowledge of history by connecting the dots of his well-researched – seemingly disparate - characters and incidents into one wholesome fare is beyond comparison. What’s more, he makes them so relatable and tangible. It is like that bit of history happening right before you, right now – like a montage: so good is his communication and story-telling skill. No wonder his group of followers has grown exponentially in just over a year as he has infected everyone with his love and passion for history. Rameen is also a very considerate organizer. He keeps all participants informed of every step of a Sunday event. He also plans his outstation trips around and between public holidays to minimize working people having to take more leave. The trips are also very well-organised in a manner that it remains within reach of all history aficionados. I will always remain grateful to Rameen for sharpening my – thus far - peripheral interest in and knowledge of history. I look forward to learning much more from him and wish him endless success in the years to come.

Through his brilliant storytelling and impeccable research, Rameen has the unique ability to make you fall in love with Delhi and history (all over again for me). I have been part of several of his very well curated walks and baithaks in Delhi and a one day trip to Deeg. Rameen has a unique ability to turn history into a beautiful community building experience. He knows how to skillfully break down the complex historical details into the most captivating tales that can be understood by all and takes great pain to filter out myths from facts. What sets him apart is his dedication and sincerity towards his craft and a bond that he shares with the community that he has built from scratch. Can't recommend enough.

Tours in City Tales curated by Rameen need to be experienced. After going on any tour with him you are sure to get sucked into the history of the times that he walks you through. The experience is so beautiful and engrossing that one waits for his next walk. I see his followers increasing alongwith a big number who go to all his walk diligently. It is a lovely mix of young and old who get seeped into the stories of monumental figures which are ageless. His story telling will make you an addict and you will wait through the week for his next walk through a different century.

City Tales by Rameen offers something for every age group. Students can gain syllabus-related knowledge, while working professionals can recharge during weekend or long-holiday by taking a break from their hectic schedules. Additionally, it provides opportunities to connect with like-minded history enthusiasts. I have attended around 15 walks and Baithaks in Delhi and one outstation tour in Lucknow. In this era of infodemic and social media, we often hold many prejudices. City Tales helps rescue us from these issues. The stories are so authentic and immersive that even people like me, who dislike reading books, can develop a good taste for history. One thing I like most about Rameen is that he doesn't shy away from entertaining curious doubts. He keeps the sessions energetic, making it clear that he is driven by passion rather than just fulfilling a duty. Another aspect I love about City Tales is the diversity of stories. Rameen conducts more than 50 different walks and continuously updates and renews them. He also holds specialized Baithaks, such as those on Mughal women and Awadh Nawabs. This constant change in flavor keeps the experience thrilling. I would advise to attend City Tales for multiple reason like: getting up early on a Sunday morning, enjoying the Delhi weather, Getting good Group Pic and doing a digital detox !

An enriching and rejuvenating experience every Sunday. I add more knowledge and experience Delhi the way I never would have dreamt off and enjoy every moment spent with City Tales. Rameen is a narrator par excellence who can keep the audience captivated, week after week. The effort, time and in-depth research done for every walk is commendable. Needless to say City Tales tours have slowly and steadily become an addiction and I look forward to it every week. Thanks Rameen for making this happen!

I have attended many baithaks and walks with Rameen and it's always been pleasurable. He is a great story teller, open to questions and discussions, and ends up showing the city in new light, adorned with stories and incidents that I would have never known about.
