What to Expect
Enjoy this 8 to 9-hour tour of Bangalore, from its modest origin in pre-medieval times to the times when it was a fairly nondescript place compared to its more illustrious peers, now long faded into oblivion; to the fascinating period when the city was traded and gifted about; then fought over and retained as a prized possession; right down to the time it reached an inflection point culminating in its transformation into a modern metropolis and IT outsourcing capital of the world. Visit an archeological museum which provides insights of habitation in the region from the paleolithic ages; move on to what was once a royal pleasure garden, later transformed to one of the foremost repository of diverse plant life in the world; explore the remains of an early fortification of Bangalore; delve into the delights of a vibrant and bustling bazaar and market; visit a famed Church with stories of its own and finally wrap up the tour amid British era public buildings and the present state legislature building.
