Benda-kaal-ooru (town of boiled bean) or Bengaluru as it is famously known today, has had many transformations to become the city that it is today. From “Pensioners Paradise” to “Garden City” and in just the last 2 decades it has transformed as the “Silicon Valley” and the “Start-up hub” in this part of the world. Bengaluru holds on to its old-world charm with grace, just as much as its modernity. From the sprawling high streets, quaint back alleys, black magic and voodoo calling spirits, bustling shopping centers, ride from place to place on the suburban transport, enjoy local tasty food, old temples and the quiet café’s; the Bengaluru in a Nutshell tour is a contrast of the old and the new Bengaluru.

On this tour there is something for everyone to take to; from local interactions, history, culture, stories, and loads of fun. This tour can either begin at 8:00 AM in the morning or 4:00 PM in the evening.
