My husband and I (from Australia) agree that this is possibly the best guided walk we have ever been in, in our life! Mr Vijay Thiruvady wove a narrative made from threads of history, botany, empires, religion, philosophy and geography that truly made the three hours of the walk fly by in a moment. This wasn't just a dry, academic... More

Mr. Vijay Thiruvady's Lalbagh walk on Sunday mornings are fantastic. Even if you are a local, do go on this walk. You will learn so much, in the best possible way. Absolutely loved it!

My friends and I signed up for the Green Heritage Walk organised every Sunday. We were a bit sceptical as to how a guided tour for over 3hrs covering trees & other flora could be interesting. And we were in for a surprise! Mr. Vijay is a master story teller where the various trees are like characters in a story.... More

The best way to spend a few hours early on Sunday morning. Mr. Vijay is an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide full of anecdotes about the gardens, Bangalore and much more. The breakfast at MTR was a true highlight. Fantastic,highly recommended.

Beautifully lead walk through Bangalore's Botanical Garden, Lal Bagh. The guide is a widely read, senior gent who seamlessly connects anecdotes to history, politics, geography and then brings alive the story of a tree or leaf...Compressed into 3 hours across 240 acres, this is just a sneak preview, since Mr Vijay can easily and most engagingly hold the group in...

I booked a cab in Bangalore for Airport drop for just Rs. 650. When the cab came I was surprised totally, It was a luxury sedan car. Later I got to know that Mega Cabs is having this offer for its customers. The cab was fabulous with comfortable seats and AC was on. It was like I am traveling in... More

Highly informative walking tour on some history and botany of the flora collection in Lal Bagh. The entire walk was like a nice bedtime story from a grandfather figure - highly engaging. The breakfast at MTR is a must try too. Highly recommended.

Outstanding - very knowledgeable & passionate guide in Vijay Thiruvady. Amazing collection of flora from all parts of the world, making it one of the premier botanical gardens with unique stories behind each plant. Like the "Pride of Burma" (Amherstia nobilis), which is also called the "Queen of Flowering Trees" or the "Orchid Tree" due to it's spectacular vermillion /... More

Many places are similar to Kenya-unkempt and dirty. India has more Suzuki Martin than anywhere else in the world. In fact the number of Toyota's is negligible

Keywords: Sunday Morning. Green Heritage Walk. Local History, which is quite amusing, to my surprise. Only 3 hour activity (if you are living in Bangalore) Meet interesting people Must to-do activity if you can wake up early on Sunday
