the it city – bangalore in a day
Go on a journey with our Culture Ambassador, an excursion with conversations and sensitivity to your (possibly) changing moods, interests and curiosities. Our off the beaten path tours take you beyond the guidebook to give you access to experiences like home dining with a local family, an up close and personal view into the lifestyle of the locals providing you with a first-hand experience of well preserved but hard to stumble upon subcultures in a city of ten million. Customise your experience – from a half day, to a full day, with history, culture, shopping, bar hopping, religion, tours for kids we have it all for you. Just drop in a mail with what you want to see and leave the rest to us.

Didn’t have too much time in Bangalore as we were visiting the city for work
Managed to contact The Delhi Way and they customised an amazing 4 hour tour for us just to get a feel of the city and how the locals live. Splendid job must say.

The IT city of South India as it is called. Took a half day tour of the Old city of Bangalore. From the temple visit to walking the old alleys to trying out some really authentic South Indian food – was a wonderful day with a great guide who showed us her city with pride.
