Fabulous way to explore this exciting place
Jan 2020
What a great idea! Praveen takes you on a running tour through the magic Lalbagh Botanical Garden and its surroundings and while doing so, gives you many insights about plants, animals, geology, religion, history and the many influences this place had on other areas. His enthusiasm for Bangalore is clearly matched by his incredible knowledge and his ability to share it.

Fantastic to run in this city
Dec 2019 • Business
I visited India for the first time in December and wanted to run during my five day business trip. I also wanted to see the city during a very busy week of work. Praveen is an excellent host and guide and we share a joy of running. If you are a runner and you want to connect with the city and avoid the dull treadmill then book a tour with Praveen. You won’t regret it! Excellent. Thank you!

Wonderful way to learn more about Bangalore
Nov 2019
Praveen took me on a tour that I absolutely could not have gotten on my own. We visited a couple amazing temples and being a foreigner I was so happy to have some context on the temples as well as guidance to be respectful. Also we ran all around the famous, huge botanical gardens when he helped show the history of the area and the gardens specifically. I'm just so glad that I signed up for the tour and would recommend to anyone who can comfortable run a 10K. I wouldn't feel safe running alone with such little experience I have with Bangalore traffic in the heart of the city but Praveen did a great job of making sure we were moving through the city in a safe way. Loved breakfast at an almost 100-year-old breakfast establishment that I would have surely just walked by. Excited to try some more of his tours if I get the chance to come back!

Great way to see the city!
Apr 2019 • Friends
This was great. I love running as a way to see a city. Went on a day tour with Praveen the day prior and we spoke about running; so I had to take him up on the tour. Early morning before the city is awake was such a wonderful experience. The pace was perfect - just over 6.5 miles (hit my workout for the day). We hit up some places that we did not see the day prior like the UB City Mall. The two coconut waters at the end were definitely a fitting way to end the run. I would highly recommend to anyone who prefers to pound the pavement and get a "local" view of the city. I love that I also got some great photos of our time running around the city - bragging rights to my local running club in Milwaukee, WI, USA.

Very insightful. Day worth spent
Nov 2018 • Friends
I had the experience of this visit on 17th Nov 2018 as part of a plog run (pick garbage while you run) event as part of MeraTerahRun. Praveen was gracious to use the heritage walk as a theme and the route for the plog run.
First of all the story is gripping. Praveen's historical knowledge about LalBaugh and Bangalore and general history is unbeatable. He seem to know the genesis of every single tree and structure inside and around LalBaugh. Amazing passion for the subject makes the experience so enchanting.

Fascinating introduction to the city
This was a great activity for our first weekend in Bengaluru! Praveen was our extremely knowledgeable guide for our run around Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, to hidden urban temples, past little known parks and a local "laughter club" before a sumptuous South Indian breakfast! A wonderful activity that I'd firmly recommend!

Brilliant running tour - another side of Bangalore
Jan 2018 • Couples
We’ve been to Bangalore before but we saw many places we had not visited before. Praveen was very knowledgable and a delight - the arrangements were easy to make and he even picked my husband and I up from our hotel. We ran about 7 miles in the early morning with stops to describe the botanical history in Lalbergh or to visit the bull temple. You could run less - the tour is tailor-made for you and the pace is as you would like. We loved some of the touches like the mango juice in the park or the stop for morning coffee with the locals at breakfast time. This is one of the highlights of our India trip this time. We would definitely repeat this tour or do another running tour with Praveen and we welcome him for a running tour in the New Forest in the UK. Breakfast at the end of the tour was one of the best we have had

3 hour running tour
This tour was a treat! Praveen was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and showed me some really excellent sites. I especially enjoyed the gardens in the early morning (we started at 6.30am). The running pace was slow enough to talk and we stopped often, including for mango juice, coffee and then a fantastic breakfast at the end.
All in all a really worthwhile introduction to Bangalore.
Thanks Praveen!
