Full description
In the morning after breakfast, you will be picked up between 8:30 – 9:00am, a chauffeur and guide will pick you up from the hotel for Bangalore sightseeing. With its beautiful gardens, boulevards, wonderful cinema and shopping complexes, the city is full of life and vigor. Start your tour by visiting the ISKCON temple which offers a truly commendable experience to visitors and devotees from a spiritual and architectural perspective. A happy blend of tradition and modernity, the temple is built in a neo-classical style. Later, proceed to the Tipu's Palace which has now been converted into a museum. The two-storied palace is entirely built of teakwood with exquisitely carved pillars, arches and balconies.  Afterwards, move on to visit the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens which houses over 1000 species of plants. You will also find a glass house inspired by the Crystal Palace of England which was built to commemorate the visit of Prince of Wales. After Lalbagh, enjoy lunch at Local Restaurant and then drive to Bangalore Palace. Bangalore Palace was built by Rev. Garrett, who was the first principal of the Central High School in Bangalore, now known as Central College. This tour only includes the outside view of Bangalore Palace. You will also drive past through High court, Cubbon Park & Vidhan Sabha to take a look at this magnificent building. Vidhan Sabha houses the legislative chambers of the state government and presently accommodates around twenty-two departments approximately. Later, visit the old Bull Temple and Gavi Gangadhareshwara. Bull temple is dedicated to a sacred Hindu demi-god, Nandi who is a close devotee and attendant of Shiva and is a fine example of Dravidian-style architecture. Gavi Gangadhareshwara Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and was cut out from rocks in the 9th century but later renovated by Kempe Gowda. It houses a unique image of Agni, the God of Fire, probably the only one of its type in all of South India. After visiting the temples, you will be driven back to the hotel/ your residence. Tour order can be changed based on your hotel location.

Knowledgeable and friendly guide with a skilled driver.

I had a half day after business meetings and prior to my flight departing Bangalore airport. My driver arrived on time and then we met with the guide soon after. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. I have been to Bangalore previously and appreciated the flexibility on our destinations and the amount of time spent at various sights.

Good tour well organized with a friendly guide and driver

The city tour is interesting, the parks are beautiful, but it is better to leave early in the morning if you have a hotel outside the city! The traffic is intense but this allows you to chat with the guide and the driver!
