About
On this private 3.5-hour tour, discover Bangalore, which was founded 500 years back by the founder of the city Kempegowda. Experience the culture, customs, and traditions come alive in the narrow alleys of this off the beaten path, where you pass through an ancient church, 380 year old temple, heritage building, historic mosque, an old wrestling house, market places, and a traditional healing place. This is the side of Bangalore you will experience only after tossing away the guide book, and one that you will remember for years to come.

Sushma is a great guide.
May 2019 • Couples
I've had several private and group tours with Sushma and I can't recommend her tours enough. She's thorough, knows her stuff and delights in sharing Bangalore with others. She makes a beautiful city with lots of old culture accessible for visitors. She's well traveled herself so she knows what visitors find novel about her city.

Must do in Bangalore for both tourists and locals
Oct 2018 • Friends
Sushma took us on a walking tour starting at Vidyarthi Bhavan, through a gorgeous cave temple from the 10th century and ending in K.R market. It was fantastic tour with so much information about Bangalore. Sushma's fantastic energy and her depth of knowledge really made this trip very special. I'm from Bangalore and it was great for me to do this trip as I was able to see my city in a completely new light and learn so much about it's history. Highly recommend it to both tourists as well as local Bangaloreans.

Sushma is great
We went on a walking tour of old Bangalore. shushma explained the history very well. She was organised and arranged the tour around my bad ankle. She went out of her way to facilitate our needs. She took us for a great tradional breakfast. I would highly recommend Shushma.

Excellent walking tour
Nov 2017 • Business
I booked a 6 hour private walking tour and it was excellent. Sushma made it fascinating while quite relaxed and pleasant and was able to change plans based on what she found I was interested in. If I return to Bangalore I will book again and I would happily recommend the tour.
