Real experience of Bangalore
Tej was an amazing tour guide. If you want a really authentic trip in Bangalore to see the local sights (not your usual tourist traps) then this is the trip for you. Excellent value including transportation to different places, food and lots of historical insights. Would highly recommend and only wish could do more.
