Overview
See the best of Bangalore with this comprehensive private tour. Over the course of 8-9 hours, learn about the city’s history from its humble pre-medieval origins to its current status as a cosmopolitan IT hub. Visit a local temple, bazaar, gardens, church, heritage buildings, an archeological museum, and much more. This tour includes all entrance fees, a delicious South Indian lunch, and the services of an English-speaking private guide.
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.
