    What to Expect
    The legacy of over 150 years of British presence in Bangalore is hard to miss if you are in the city. For example, the broad roads laid out over 200 years ago for horse carriages, bullock carts and horsemen do a fine job of carrying the chaotic traffic of this day too.
    The British brought to Bangalore promenades, parks, churches, schools, hospitals, pubs, clubs, shopping centers, dance halls, race course, golf range, cricket etc where there was none before.
    In this specially curated tour, we will explore in detail many of the fascinating landmarks of that era and sneak a peek at a few more, that have left an indelible mark on the cityscape of Bangalore
    Come learn how events of that era shaped a modest town become one of the largest cities in India in a few generations and how the capital of an unknown state became the outsourcing capital of the world.
    Minimum 2 people needed to run. Or 1 willing to pay for 2.
