What a great privilege to have Mr Vijay as a guide in Bangalore's Lal Bagh gardens. He is extremely knowledgeable about not only the gardens and their history, but Bangalore history in general. There was hardly a question, on any topic, he couldn't answer. He'll point out things that aren't signposted and that you wouldn't otherwise notice. And the whole... More

When I was looking for the Bangalore Walks only this one was happening. Didn't know what expects me, I met the group and Mr. Vijay at the entrance of the Bangalore Botanical Garden. I didn't know I would get so many information! Mr. Vijay is extremely knowledgeable and you can sense his excitement for botanic, mythology, culture, history. He touched... More

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.

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
