What people are saying about Bangalore

Aniketh was a fantastic guide. He was very informative and knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and enjoy the tour. The tour was exactly as described, however, you could modify it slightly to suit your needs. This was my first time in India and I think this walking tour is a great introduction to the area of Bangalore.

Wow! What a great way to spend a Sunday morning in Bangalore. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kind and even spent extra time with us to tell us about Hinduism. In addition to the temples and market tout, it was great to visit the inside of someone's home, try amazing dosas and coffee and get shopping tips. I would highly recommend this tour!
