Lahore is Pakistan’s second-largest city. It is widely considered the country’s cultural capital. The heart of Lahore is the Walled or Inner City, a very densely populated area of about one square kilometer. Founded in legendary times, and a cultural center for over a thousand years, Lahore has many attractions to keep the tourist busy. The Mughal and Sikh legacy survives in the Lahore Fort, Badshahi Mosque, and Gurdwara, the Mall is lined with colonial-Gothic buildings from the British Raj, and the suburbs of Gulberg and Defense feature palatial mansions and trendy shopping districts.

Hi! guys I am Shahid, a Tour Guide from Lahore Pakistan.
Shahid Yousaf – I am an authorized Tour Guide from the Government of Pakistan. I did a master’s in History and since 1999, I am working as a Travel Guide for Pakistan. Working as a tourist guide combines almost all my passions: history, art, restoration, science, architecture, literature, and travel; Working with tourists is for me a delight, I receive great satisfaction comparing myself with people having diverse cultures, and at the same time I’m proud to show them the beauty of my country.
Well prepared, timely, excellent knowledge of the surroundings. Shahid knows and everyone knows shahid quite well from the doormen to security guards to people in high density area in inner Lahore. Shahid is humble and easy going. he explained all the landmarks and history behind them. We did inner city tour and I recommend having a guide when you go there as there are so many things to do, shahid navigate: us through all the landmarks effortlessly. After Lahore inner city tour, we went to wagha border ceremony with protocol. It was memorable trip!
High recommended to have shahids services for both these trips!

We visited Pakistan for the first time and we were so glad we chose Shahid to be our guide. He managed to pack as much as we wanted into a busy two-day schedule, he speaks English fluently, and he helped arrange our transportation to and from the Wagah border. The history here is truly staggering and we really enjoyed learning about it on the tour. Lahore is a great place to visit, and right now is a perfect time to see it.

Shahid Yousaf proved an excellent guide. His work at the Fort and experience as a historian as well as a tour guide were invaluable, and led to a full day of walking and driving around Lahore’s sights, even meeting a local resident in his own home in the crowded, high-density old town. All arrangements went to plan, from the collection at my hotel in the morning through to drop back in the afternoon after a visit to the border ceremony. Well recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-day tour of Lahore. From the time we first contacted Shahid Yousaf, the owner, the communication was swift and efficient. When a last-minute issue caused a change in the guide, our replacement guide, Altaf, was excellent. His vast knowledge of Pakistani history, politics, and charm made for a great tour. The drivers were also professional, courteous, and timely. We would certainly use them again.

I used Mr. Shahid for a day trip to Lahore and had a fantastic experience! He was very professional, the car we used was comfortable, clean, and had a very refreshing aircon in the 37-degree weather. He seems very well respected in the community, has deep knowledge of both the history and current affairs of Lahore, and speaks excellent English. The best treat for me is that he was able to get me access to some pretty exclusive parts of the sites which crowned the entire experience. Also, ask him how he started out as a tour guide and get a wonderful story served with your tour! 100% would recommend.

I did the 2-day tour with Shahid. We saw many interesting things – from old mosques to the old city to riding in the rickshaws to the border ceremony. He came to pick me up right at the hotel, very much on time and ready to go with the driver. Besides seeing all the interesting things that Lahore has to offer, my favorite was just interacting with the locals. Shahid has a great way with the locals (since he is one himself), so we had plenty of time to just sit with random people, drink some tea and talk about life in Pakistan or try to play some local music. Shahid also is great about communication and is very flexible in the scheduling. Highly recommend if you want to get to know this amazing part of the world!

My brother and I recently visited Pakistan for two weeks. Mr. Shahid and his partners Jamal and Ghulam were out of this world! First, they helped secure our LOI in just one day and we had our tourist visas only a week later. They coordinated very fun, informative and comfortable tours in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar. We visited many historical landmarks, markets and famous buildings while also spending time for experiences like the Wagah border and tea and coffee in local settings. The weather was hot, so it was nice having an air-conditioned car with seat belts. We were able to comfortably interact with locals and felt very safe and in good hands at all times. The team went above and beyond our expectations. I’d highly recommend using Mr. Shahid and team for all of your Pakistan travel needs.

I came to Lahore for two days and one night with my two children (9 and 12) and parents (78 and 83) by crossing the Wagah border into Pakistan. We cannot recommend Shahid highly enough. He took care of my entire family and shepherded my little ones, making sure everyone was always looked after and taken care of. Shahid’s English is easy to understand and his vocabulary sophisticated. He is an intelligent and kind man and knew how to appeal to my children who said Lahore was the highlight of a two-week trip of Punjab, Delhi and Varanasi.
The preparation for this trip was exhausting and I needed many documents and letters from Shahid in order to get German and USA visas to Pakistan. He was patient and always dependable. Upon arrival, he was waiting for us with a lovely driver, his brother and an air-conditioned van which was in very good condition and extremely safe and comfortable.
Shahid also brought us to delicious restaurants and to a vegetable market that was out of this world. We asked if he’d organize a fire haircut for my son, Adrian – SO MUCH FUN! He was loving and kind, intelligent and supportive. It makes me want to visit Pakistan and have Shahid and his brother as our guides again. We miss them! Nobody measured up like they did in the two weeks we traveled India & Lahore. Honestly, Shahid makes you want to go back to see more of beautiful Pakistan and its lovely, hospitable and kind people.

Quality historical Tour
planned my trip to Lahore a few months ago & Shahid helped me with the invitation letter.
He setup a two-day itinerary that not only included what I wanted to see but so much more. He’s very knowledgeable of the region and I really appreciated the details he explained of every place we went to. I didn’t feel rushed at any point. He further recommended a colleague for the rest of my trip in a different region which was great and helped with the arrangements. I didn’t expect that at all. Thank you very much!
Shahid was incredibly knowledgeable, personable and friendly. We only had 24 hours to tour Lahore before going back over the Wagah border crossing to India. He really helped us make the most of it. We felt taken care of and he went out of his way to make sure we hadn’t a great time. He spoke excellent English – pick up at immigration was prompt and seamless! Really recommend!
