I've been for 2 walks with Go in the city... the Qutub walk and the Nizamuddin Dargah walk. These walks have been the most memorable, enriching and informative experiences that I've had in recent years. The best part is the personal attention that I got. Ajay, Aditi and Gaurav are the sweetest people I've come across. Would love to do more walks with them and highly recommend it to others as well.
