A great opportunity to go back in times and get a glimpse of Bangalore's history. I was not aware of the multiple silk looms running in the heart of the city, glad that we were allowed to get a close look at the looms and how silk is dyed. On my own, I would not have gone into the small alleys behind Badami House. It was good to walk along with Mansoor and get to hear some of the tit bits around the place.

Feedback: I would have loved to eat at the SLN Lunch home, which is very much a heritage by itself rather than at the run-of-the-mill darshini.

The walk was really good. Well organised and thought of. We explore places generally but getting to know the history enriches the experience. I enjoyed the walk thoroughly, if only maybe a couple more spots would have been added to the itinerary of 3 hr walk, would be even better.

Would love to join for more.

It was an awesome walk with loads of information on the constructions of buildings and layouts in the pre-british era. We got visit inside of some of the heritage buildings and felt wonderful as being a Bangalorean never had a chance.

A very good visit, with Ameen Ahmed giving a very informative talk along with maps and pictures. His thorough knowledge of the historical contexts contemporary to the period made the event most interesting. Unfortunately, the site is not maintained and a great opportunity to showcase an important period of Indian history is lost to the public. It is a credit to people like Ameen, who have the passion and commitment, that we can carry forward this legacy.
This review was for Indian weapons that ruled global battle fields- Tipu’s Armoury & Mysore Rockets.

Our guide Ameen was very knowledge and was able to answer all our questions very well. The best thing about the walk was that it was informative without being judgemental and the information given was honest and emparted in an engaging way.

Difficult questions were handled very well.

Ameen covered everything in an interesting way and I look forward to going to Mysore and learning more about Tipu Sultan.

Our walk did end a slightly later than we expected ( since it started late), which in turn delayed us for a lunch appointment but apart from that it was an enjoyable Sunday morning.

This review was for In the Footsteps of the "Tiger of Mysore"..

Ameen the guide was a great guy. Very knowledgable and passionate about the tour subject. I think in this tour 'Footsteps of the Tiger of Mysore' there was very less to see and also we spent more time than needed having breakfast at an average hotel. Suggest provide returnable individual reading material relevant to tour during the tour duration. Overall, it was an interesting experience

Pettah walk in Nagarathpet: The silk tales is a superb place to find out about silk and weaving techniques. Walk on the streets of Pettah area in Bangalore and take a glimpse of culture of the city that reminds of old times.

An absolutely amazing experience! Even though I live in Malleswaram, I never knew there's so much history to the place. Thanks to Mansoor, I got to know a lot about my neighbourhood and fulfilled my dream of visiting the old houses in the place. Yes, I have a totally irrational love towards the old houses and Malleswaram still have many such houses, thankfully.

Great job by Mansoor and team! A big Thank You :-)

Our steps always freeze when ever we come across heritage structures and objects, in any corner of the globe. We always try to get a closer glimpse of them. Here are a few images taken recently by Ameen Ahmed, our Co-Founder in the Canadian cities of Vancouver (British Columbia) and Edmonton (Alberta).

The forgotten clock tower of Russell market.
Another exclusive walk in Shivajinagar which takes us to the sights and sounds around the iconic Russell market.

Everyone knows that Russell market was completed in 1927 by the British, but what not many know is the fact that there once stood an earlier market on the same spot called as the "New market". This had a central clock tower which was reused in the Russell market super structure. Was it a con job to grab government funds for a job not done or was it the fact that the tower was an architectural masterpiece which the builders didn't want to demolish. Join as we unravel the truth behind this with some old photos and maps in between tasting dates from all across the globe.

We also get to meet some wrestlers & pay our respects at a church, a temple and the tomb of a Sufi saint on this walk.

Also included are a visit to an iconic bakery and a South Indian restaurant in this area.

Note:

1.Cost of this walk is INR 600/- with 25% off for senior citizens above 60 years & children between 9-16 years.

2. We need a minimum of 4 people [who have made payment in advance] to conduct a walk. We reserve the right to cancel the walk if there are less than 4 walkers.

3. We take advance payment for all our walks and tours.

5. In case you buy the ticket but are unable to attend the walk, we can accommodate you on a similar walk over the next three months.

6. In case we are unable to conduct this walk, we will refund the entire amount paid in advance by the walkers.

Pettah Walk in Avenue Road.
This walk takes the guests 500 years back in time, to the rule of Kempe Gowda I when he founded the city of Bengaluru after he saw some strange happenings. Who was Kempe Gowda & what brought him to Bengaluru? What was it that made Kempe Gowda to select the Pettah as the spot for his new city? What was it that made it such a prosperous city within 100 years that it attracted the greed of the Bijapur Sultans, who were supported by the Marathas? What made it a lucrative possession for the mighty Mughals themselves? Why did the British occupy Bangalore, after the IV Anglo Mysore war? What was the old fort of Bangalore like & what happened to it? Unravel the answers to to all these questions by taking this walk.

Also, get to know more about the different communities which made the Pettah their home and also learn about a few famous philanthropists, Sufi saints, temples and much more in the oldest part of Bengaluru. The walk ends with some nice snacks from an iconic eatery, just off this road.
