Aniketh was a fantastic guide. He was very informative and knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and enjoy the tour. The tour was exactly as described, however, you could modify it slightly to suit your needs. This was my first time in India and I think this walking tour is a great introduction to the area of Bangalore.
