Outstanding 5 hour private walking tour of Bangalore
Jan 2020
We found Sushma Ajay through the "Tours by Locals" website of Bangalore and we are so very glad for that. Her own company is "Yours truly India." Initially the tour was described as lasting 3 hours but we asked if she could lengthen it to 5 hours which she did. We arranged our own transportation to/from the city as our hotel was near the airport. This was easy to do.
We started at the Aurobindo Ashram, then walked to the Gurudwara Sikh center, onto Halasuru village, then to the Someshwara Temple, to the Graveyard at the Kali Temple, to a outdoor laundry site, to the Indiranagar area. The walking was done at an easy pace with conversation, explanations along the way . Sushma was knowledgeable, amiable, and we learned so much about Indian culture, religion, daily life. Walking through the neighborhood of Halasuru was particularly interesting. This is truly a worthwhile walking tour: good value for the money and time well spent. Thank you Sushma and much continued success in your endeavours.

Excellent. The guide was exceptionally polite and prepared to answer all my questions. Willing to customize the tour according to my requests and needs. Very good knowledge of the city and many spots that would not be reachable without a guide. Great street food experience too. Definitely recommended.

Excellent way to get to know Bangalore - top tour guide!
Feb 2019 • Business
I had the privilege of taking the heritage walk tour with Sushma and two colleagues of mine. We had an exciting, interesting, and fun day. Sushma was very friendly - from the planning to the tour itself she was focused on delivering the best experience for us. Knowledgable, kind, warm can all describe her. Her love and passion for her home city shines through. I learned so much on this tour - from the history of a cave temple, to how people live, we visited an outdoor laundry washing service, and saw Bangalore Fort and an amazing and lively market. I highly recommend Sushma's tours to anyone visiting Bangalore.

Great way to explore Bangalore
Jan 2019 • Business
My colleagues and I were in Bangalore for business, and this was our one afternoon to spend out exploring the city, and we couldn't have been happier with this tour! I strongly recommend it! Shushma was a fantastic guide--incredibly knowledgeable and personable, and she was also patient, letting us take as much time in each spot as we liked. The tour led us through the hustle and bustle of the old market, and we got to enjoy the beautiful flower market, smell the spices at the food market, try some cookies from a small shop, and explore an old fort, summer palace, and temple. It was fun to explore the city on foot, and learn about the history of the city from Shushma.

Great Tour of Bangalore!
Jan 2019 • Friends
Our group of six had a terrific time on our half-day walking tour of Bangalore. We did a Saturday afternoon tour, and Shushma showed us around the center of the old city. We stopped at the flower market, where we got to see the folks making arrangements and the merchants in action; the food market; the old fort, and stopped at the end of the day at a Hindu temple on the grounds of the fort. Shushma is extremely knowledgeable and personable, and was happy to answer any question we had. She even gave us good recommendations for lunch (before the tour) and dinner (after). I'd highly recommend her!

Lovely experience!
I asked for a private tour of Bangalore. It was a delightful experience. Just let me say, Sushma is the quintessential Banglorean in every sense of the word. This lady lives and breathes Bangalore. The love of her city and the pride she takes in sharing her wealth of information and experiences is infectious. I have been to Bangalore many times but not this Bangalore. Sushma made the city and its secrets come alive. She'll regale you with facts and stories.
If you want a fun day filled with good eats, good conversation, lovely walk with all the sites and sounds of Bangalore as the backdrop, this tour is for you.
I am looking forward my next walking tour with them!

Stepping into Bangalore's history with a great knowledgeable friend
Mar 2018 • Solo
I had the luck to spend an afternoon walking for Bangalore's center with Sushma and it was an exceptionally good experience!

My first time in India, but here for work, I was looking for a way to get out of the office working set and getting to know a more casual Bangalore. Sushma introduced me to the city (as much as you can do that in an afternoon), narrated the historical background, and adapted her routine to my curiosity and questions.

Her style and amiable approach rests on a vast wealth of historical information, as you'd expect from a professional academic.

This tour brought me to the KR Market and between the spices, the flowers, the colors, the buzzing crowd and the history narration, got every part of me engaged. Stepping through the external fort and the Palace of Tipu Sultan rounded up a unique voyage. I highly recommend this tour.
