Outstanding tour, with driver and guide. My guide was fantastic, so knowledgeable, great discussions and point of views on all aspects of the Bangalore history, spiritualism, culture and lifestyle of the people. He was sincere and filled with so much information, I think he should write a book. Both my guide and driver were courteous, and respectful and I felt comfortable the minute I entered the car. Unfortunately I do not remember my guides name, but i fully recommend him for any one looking for a day filled with historical and spiritual knowledge.

Picked up at hotel on time. The half day tour was good introduction to Bangalore. The guide, Raghu was very knowledgeable and friendly. We visited a number of temples and palaces. He explained what was acceptable, such as dress codes and footwear for various temples you can keep on our socks but the floors may be wet. He also advised me to make small financial donations 100 rupees to be placed on the plate offered by the temple staff as a matter of curtsey to them. Raghu allows me as much time as I wanted at each venue plus as a solo traveler he offered to take my photo at various sites there were quite a few. The driver, Mohan, waited patiently at every stop until we returned. As for the pre-paid lunch stop, the timing was agreed between the three of us, which was fine by me. I was taken to the New Krishna Bhavan restaurant in Bangalore. Raghu asked if I had a preference for any particular type of food vegetarian, spicy, non-Indian. There appeared to be two areas to this restaurant one for the a la carte menu and the other area which was half full. Rughu explained the menu and the tastes, thus I chose, a mild pea aloo curry with Roti bread followed by blackcurrant ice-cream. I have to admit that I nodal food is not my favourite but this meal was delicious probably because it was authentic rather that modified for Europeans. I ate about half the curry as I wasn't that hungry at the time, so Raghu asked if I would like to take the rest back to my hotel to eat later he even got two extra Roti bread to go with it. The lunch was officially the end of the tour but the guide knew I needed to go to an ATM machine, we tried four from different banks but none would accept my Visa card the travel agent at the hotel sorted out the payment for the locally booked tours for me. As a solo traveler, I'd recommend this tour even though it's a bit pricier than the similar locally run tours. It does include a guide, driver and lunch all to yourself. One point to note

Wonderful glimpse of the city. Our drive , Nagesh was pleasant and capable. Our tour guide, Vinay, was knowledgeable and informative. Enjoyed the botanical gardens, Tipu Sultan's palace, Bangalore Fort and Bangalore Palace. It was a government holiday, so we were only able to view the Vidhana Soudha building from outside. Instead we stopped at Bull Temple and a silk shop. Great day, I would highly recommend this tour.

This is a very lousy tour.. Pick up at 9 am and drop off at 3pm.. Tipu Sultan Palace and Lalbagh Garden got nothing to see.. Sri Bull Temple still fine, something special.. No visit to Bangalore Palace and Vidhana Soudha, just drive through and pass by, view from the car.. It cost me 102 Pound equivalent to 10K rupees.. I can did it myself less than 1/4 of the amount.. Feeling being cheated, Poor !!
