Vijay has very good knowledge of the Lal Bagh botanical gardens. But the pace of the walk is very slow. And it seems he has a problem with mobility which leads to him pointing out trees from afar as apposed to a more close inspection. Great weather and clean air are highlights.

Took Bangalore city tour with party of 10, spend aprox 3 hours touring the city.

It looks like the only tour running at the moment is the Green Heritage walk - I went on this yesterday and I'd back up everything people have said about Mr Vijay's walk, very interesting and brilliantly narrated :) Although I would say that it's not something for young kids (or adults) with a short attention span.

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
