Full description
The first stop of your Bangalore day tour is the 240-acre Lalbagh Botanical Garden. Home to more than 1,800 species of plants, shrubs, and trees, see why the garden serves as the lungs of the city and what makes it such a prominent landmark. Escape the concrete jungle of Bangalore as you take refuge here before heading to your next destination. Continue on to Bull Temple, dedicated to Nandi Bull the vehicle of Lord Shiva. Admire the temple's architecture and presence as one of the oldest temples in Bangalore that draws devotees from all over the country. Enter the temple to see the huge idol of Nandi Bull and learn about its mythical origins.  After the temple, visit Vidhan Soudha, one of the most famous buildings in Bangalore. As it houses the legislative chambers of the state government and is a working office, be impressed by the massiveness of the building while viewing it from outside. Hear about its construction and fine architectural details from your guide.  Head to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Bangalore temple cultural complex and learn about this interesting branch of the Hindu religion. Then go to Bangalore Palace which belonged to the Wodeyar Kings of Mysore. Built-in the Tudor style, the palace has fortified towers, battlements, and turrets. Its interior houses elegant wood carvings, floral motifs, relief paintings, and furniture in Edwardian and Victorian themes. Take an audio tour of the palace and hear in rich detail about the lives and times of the kings. During your tour, enjoy a stop for lunch that is included.

the guide was very nice and it was much easier to see the sites with the guide than it would have been without him. I would have liked to have heard more details about some of the things we saw, like why the Nandi is black, about the charity work of the ISKCON Temple...etc, but all in all it was a good tour, I just expected a bit more information for the high costs.

It was a lovely well paced day out. Starting in the beautiful botanical gardens was a wonderful way to start the day and ease you into the hustle and bustle of the city. Don’t be in a hurry… And enjoy every unique experience from drinking green coconut water and eating the insides to feeling the heat on the bottom of your feet while walking into an incense filled temple. All of your senses will be tingled on this learning about Indian culture experience.
