Great way to explore Bangalore

This walk was a great experience! We visited two temples, an old local house with an incredible backyard, and the sprawling marketplace. Sushma gave context for everything we were seeing and tied places together throughout history and geography. Ruchira walked us through the history and some funny anecdotes from the amazing dosa place we went to for an evening snack. One of us is not from India visiting for the first time and the walk provided a great introduction to the culture and food of Bangalore. Highly recommend!
Exploring an charming old part of Bangalore

I did a similar walk with Yours Truly India a few years back. But it feels like a different walk each time because the guide Sushma managed to add so many more details about each place. She shared a lot about the locality we walked in and had interesting things to point out in different shops and in the local market. There were also some images of old Bangalore to cross reference with the places that we visited during the walk. If you are in Bangalore for 3-4 days doing this walk is a great idea, because it's a way to spend a day getting acquainted with the city's past history and current culture.
Great Guide, Great Tour!

Sushma, our tourist guide made of this tour a super experience. We visited a typical cafe, an ancient temple, local people houses, the laundry neighborhood and the flours market. Our tour guide made of this an amazing experience. I very much recommend them! Thank you for this great experience Sushma!
Good experience with a friendly guide

Sightseeing with Sushma was a good experience. She showed us places not usually described in guidebooks and visited by tourists. I especially enjoyed the morning laughing yoga class in the park. I recommend it.
