I'm considering going to Jalandhar in mid March on my way to Amritsar.
I had a few questions, hoping someone could point me in the right direction:

1) Are there any tours that can show us around a local village at all?

2) So far for Jalandhar, I have food and bazaars (Sheikhan + Rainak) on the list. I'm not a huge sports fan. Anything else that can be recommended?

3) Anywhere in Jalandhar or Amritsar (or along the way) where I can experience traditional Punjabi dance performances?

4) Any recommended car + drivers from Jalandhar? I was considering hiring one to do my Jalandhar to Amritsar to Attari-Wagah border route. I'd then fly onwards from Amritsar airport.

Thanks in advance!

During our last trip our plan was to arrive in the afternoon in Jalandhat to catch the train.
Due to circumstances we arrived a day earlier. I walked around the bazaars and they are nice.
But I don't think that the town is very interesting.

^I figured as much.

After looking at the punjab tourism website, it seems it's possible to do a farm stay near a village but that's about it.

I think I'll settle for going to a restaurant like Haveli in Jalandhar. That seems to somewhat have what I'm looking for.
