About
Explore the local craft and art (some regional to Karnataka / old Mysore state / Bangalore, and some local to India as a whole). There are a variety of such things, all the way from the typical carved souvenir, to the delicate pashmina, hand embroidered fabric, designer boutiques housing local talent, antiques, upcycled waste, handpainted fabric, jewelry etc. Customisation is normally done when the group meets the guide, and the guide spontaneously works out a program to suit everyone on board. There are times when you may be the only one signing up. But there are also times when there are others. In this case the itinerary is designed with a democratic approach.

When booking I had rather low expectations. However, the day tourned out to be so extremly wonderful. Although I knew the city a little bit already we covered the hidden gems and met many interesting people on the go. Tourguide Kay was very friendly, organised and adjusted to my personal liking. Her inputs and especially historical facts were just right.

Other than expected no group tour. Very individual and personalized - definitely safe throughout.
Thank you for a wonderful day and showing me Bangalore from its very traditional artsy side.

I had booked this tour based on the description of being able to pick your programme and a couple of the items on the sample programme. This didn’t turn out to be the case and we were told that Sundays things are not open and also that we could do more if we had booked the 8 hour tour. There was no henna option or Rangoli or silk printing or astrologist! The tour was very basic, pottery town not really worth visiting in March & the palace we only saw the outside. It’s better to get a driver for a few hours price wise. The guide was really nice so don’t want this to seem like a bad reflection on him but it came across that this tour was really not a tour that should run on a Sunday as nothing was open. Poorly organised in my view.

I just finished an all day culture tour of Bangalore - it was incredible. My guide, D, a Bangalore native, was so knowledgeable and thoughtful in the locations we visited. She adjusted the tour as we were invited to eat at a local temple - and we had a lovely time.
The dosas, temples, block printing demo, fabric store, bangles store, The Jewelry Project, washerman's village and all along lovely company. Would definitely book with this tour company again.

Even on a day when there was a nation-wide strike, we were taken to fascinating areas of Bangalore that many tourists would never see. Most amazing and humbling was the women's empowerment project, where slum-dwelling women make shopping bags from used fruit juice boxes. An eye opener for comfortable Westerners.
