We had a fantastic tour of Bangalore with Lily! We've been in Bangalore for a few months already, but we were excited to see more of the city that we hadn't yet seen. Lily was our tour guide for the day and fortunately for us, we were the only ones on the tour so we got a private tour! Lily was so knowledgeable and really knew how to explain the history of the sights and she answered all of our questions. She did a fantastic job taking us through the market and taking us for a delicious light lunch of the most scrumptious dosa we've had while in India.
I would highly recommend this tour if you're in Bangalore. While I feel that the price was a bit high for the tour, I do think it's worth doing if you have the budget. Going to the market was our favorite part!
Thank you again Lily for a fantastic tour!

My daughter and I really enjoyed our time with Pallavi and learned a lot about the history of Bangalore. The markets were colorful and chaotic and we would have been overwhelmed without our guide. She was very knowledgeable, fun and helped us negotiate some good bargains with vendors! This will be one of our favorite memories of Bangalore!

Wowsers!

Today I experienced the Bengaluru Markets and did the “Pete” Walk.

From start to finish it was simply amazing. Our guide was Guru, super informative, very friendly and his passion was clear to see. Being a local, he could tell you stay after story.
I was expecting this walk to be good, however it surpassed all expectations. Colours were insane, food markets, the endless flower markets, it was eye-opening. Our brunch stop was again incredible. We watched them make our Masala Dosa and I can honestly say it’s the best thing I’ve eaten since being here in Bangalore.

One final thing, at the end of the tour, I foolishly had no money on me. Struggling to find a cash machine, Tej, founder of the company, happily ordered me an Uber from her phone. Lifesaver!

Seriously, if you are in town and you want a true, local, traditional feel of Bangalore, there is nothing better than these guys.

The pete walk showed us the different lifestyle of Bangalore. We started with the temple and then headed for Tipu palace followed by Kr market which was filled with colourful flowers and what not. They explained it really well and kept it interesting!!!!

Tour guide was lovely, but nothing we were told wasn't written on the wall. Anticipated a clean tourist market and was taken to the dirtiest market where beggars kept grabbing me and asking for money. Was very uncomfortable, and was not cheap. Actually stopped tour early. Definitely wouldn't recommend nor worth rhe cost.

Dear Travel975kk, It saddens us to hear that you did not enjoy the tour. Unventured is an experiential travel company the focus is on curating experiences that bring out the true flavour of the region. As locals in the region our goal is to bring you closer to the region through local experiences but ensure it’s a softer landing. The markets are at the epicenter of the hustle and bustle of the city. Bengaluru’s markets are also the story of its origins. We’ve been offering this tour to several hundreds of travellers for the last 8 years and take pride in this being our BEST TOUR. We’ve noted that you were unhappy with the tour on 3 counts and here are our responses. 1. “nothing we were told wasn't written on the wall” Many of the sites we visited are truly LOCAL and AUTHENTIC and are living ecosystems by themselves. Also at Unventured we pride in being storytellers and not mere historians sharing facts. Most heritage sites only confine themselves to the facts but we focus on sharing interesting stories of local legends that give flavour to the region as we paint a picture of the region's history. We even make the effort of differentiating between legend and historical facts so there is no misinterpretation. The markets are active and exist not for touristy appeal but an ecosystem that exists by itself to serve the locals, it is less of a museum. As a result a lot of its history is not also documented like that of a historic site that has past events. 2. “Anticipated a clean tourist market and was taken to the dirtiest market where beggars kept grabbing me and asking for money” The Pete walk as described in the tour description is a market for locals to trade and not a tourist market. As a matter of fact, there is very less for a tourist to buy in these markets but a lot more to experience that is local, authentic and real. Across India the local markets are always bustling with energy and they exist in the midst of poverty and the chaos of street hawkers. We agree that this is not your ideal market in the west and everyone expects something different. But being in a country like India the local culture revolves around such markets and exists in this state of organised chaos. Beggars on streets are a result of the poverty that some sections of the people face. They do come by and ask for money, but rest assured they DON'T hassle people and particularly in the presence of a tour leader. Our tour leaders are trained to deal with such situations and we haven't had a single issue of harassment from hawkers or beggers in the markets that has resulted in them being under physical threat or harm in any way. You had encountered beggars on 2 occasions and in neither cases did anyone physically harass you. It was recorded that a child had approached you and was much closer than comfortable for a brief moment. While we cannot stop beggars on the streets we will take feedback in ensuring greater safety but we assure you that they mean no harm. 3. “Was very uncomfortable, and was not cheap” Our tour leaders take utmost care of guests and ensure they are responsible for the guest all along. This is the "adventure with a softer landing" we refer to as the Unventured experiences. On this occasion we assume this may have happened when the team visited the temple and you had insisted on staying outside since you had to take your shoes off to enter the temple and it is a regulation we cannot break rules. Unfortunately the price of the tour and the resulting value is relative to the value travellers draw from it. We’ve hosted this tour for many travellers and have never been told that the price was high. But we will take this feedback and try to rework on the pricing of the tour. But rest assured that we are priced based on the value we add on the tour and that WE DO NOT HAVE ANY HIDDEN costs when on the tour and you DO NOT HAVE TO SPEND on anything once you are on the tour (entry tickets, food - as much as you wish to eat) etc… At Unventured we’re a tour company that does not compromise on the quality of the experience. We hope these responses have given some clarity albeit not convinced you about our tour or service. We wish you safe travels and request you to not loose trust in exploring local places when travelling in India, it is the pulse of this country and truly INCREDIBLE INDIA! Best Regards, Team Unventured!

The flower markets and the brunch we’re absolute stand out experiences. The guide was excellent, great spoken english, very knowledgeable and engaging. Would probably suggest wearing covered shoes. Highly recommend this tour to see things you’d never see on your own.

It was a fabulous tour of a Bengaluru, downtown market, Hindu temple, Muslim, temple, silk, weaving, and great walk through the Back Alley ways. Our tour guide Gladys was fantastic. She was enthusiastic and knowledgable of the local history.

Gladys was an exceptional tour guide. We saw a side of Bengaluru (Banglore) that really showed how the locals trade and live on a day to day basis. We had lunch at a local place and I had the best Dosa Masala I've had all trip.
The photos are only a small snippet :)
