I had been living in Bangalore for about four years when I went on this tour with Travspire. I felt a bit guilty about how little I knew of its history and of the amazingness around me after going on this tour.
I was able to learn about the origins of the city, its rulers, and visit historical landmarks. We visited a bustling market and flower market, which were different than my prior experiences of visiting markets as the guide gave context and was even able to engage with and have conversations with local vendors. Lots of colors and photo ops!
The guide also took us to an amazing hole-in-the-wall dosa place which was simply delicious.
Easily some of the best time I've spent in Bangalore and so much value for just half of a day. Most of all, it opened my eyes to the deep history and bustling activity going on daily - it gave me new perspective to the place I called "home".
Would definitely recommend to visitors and long-time residents alike!
