Highlights
    What to Expect
    You will be picked up by a professional driver in an air-conditioned vehicle at your preferred location, such as your local hotel or the airport in Bangalore. From a list (found under "Additional Info") of the most popular markets in Bangalore, you will be able to choose 2-3 markets to go to. You can provide your selection of markets the day before, and you can receive more guidance if you are not sure which market you want to go to or which one you would prefer. The suggested pick up time is around 11.00, and the duration of this experience is about 4-5 hours, depending on how much you want to shop and look around.

    The driver will then take you to the first market and drop you off. You will arrange a meeting time and place with the driver, where he will wait for you after you have finished scouting through the first market. Some markets may have vehicle restrictions, and the driver will therefore drop you off as close as possible to the market, and also meet you as close as possible. After you have finished at the first market, the driver will be waiting for you at the designated area, and then take you to the next market. Same process goes for the next market, and you will discuss with your driver when and where to meet. When you have finished your shopping experience, the driver will take you back to your hotel, or any preferred location such as the airport. During the day, you can ask the driver to stop for lunch or food nearby of the market to enjoy the local cuisine and get a break from the shopping.

    Day trip
    Drove down from bangalore. Most beautiful drive esp after hassan. Landscape felt like the south of france.. But not quite. It was like the warmth that you can feel in your own multicultural diverse country. 523 km round trip from bangalore, over 10 hours of total time for the trip and we still felt fresh on the return.

    Deep dive into the authentic India
    We've made this private tour in three this July and enjoyed it a lot. Driver arrived to out hotel almost an hour advance of the departure time. Car was clean and comfortable, AC was working. We've visited three planed temples, two of them with a guide. During the whole trip driver was finding a good places to make a stops for bathroom and lunch. The only thing we didn't quite enjoy - the real trip duration was 15h instead of 10h planned. Stops and dinner might took us together additional 2h top, but would be good to understand in advance amount of time trip might take. Highly recommend this tour if you're interested in exploring India.

    Electricity
    This is the only city in the world where electricity goes out when wind starts blowing say exceeding 20 kmph or rain starts drizzling and comes back only after at least 1 hour when wind and or rain stops completely. And it claims itself to be smart city

    Amazing Indian civilization!
    This is my 2nd time to visit Belur, Halebid and 1st time for Shravanabelagola. I don't remember much from my first visit to Belur and Halebid. Everything was blur... due to language. This time I have a private guide to explain the history and characteristics of the temples, carvings, cultures. I truly enjoyed the trip.

    Interesting variety of places on the tour
    First off,the traffic in Bangalore is bonkers, so if you're staying in Whitefield (as we were), be prepared to take a long drive to the center of the city to start your tour. We were taken to the botanical gardens, the black bull temple (fascinating), the science center (I wasn't so into that but my companion was), and driven past the new government buildings. We learned some interesting facts about each place, and appreciated the air-conditioned car. We were the only two people on the tour, so it felt. personal.
